"Things were joining us today. Here on native america calling tara gatewood from his subtle pueblo and we are talking about indigenous identity. If you'd like to join us on lines are open now. One eight hundred nine nine six two eight four eight. We go back to our caller. Phyllis a who is joining us out of standing rock north dakota to in on kale indy phillies. Go head attorney back to you. Go ahead finish your thoughts. Thank you The doctrine of discovery defined us from day one that can Crossing barriers and creating illegal status for us it applied to asia africa and the americas. And so you know we as my work in the un for twenty years from nineteen seventy seven to nineteen ninety eight Initiating the declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples and that was identity to be defined in the un the customary law box is mt and we are trying to fill that now. We have been for twenty years to define ourselves so we have many many different levels and cases As a co founder of women allred nations in nineteen seventy eight. We marched in nineteen seventy two in the trail of broken treaties. And that was our right to I religious freedom. The american indian religious freedom act which is going on forty one years We're just now at full adulthood on who we are and finding our own cultural values in identification for ourselves because when we have thirty three treaties to la the put an with the united states more than any other group and so our lands have been invaded taken. Stolen pilfered And our identity as well and the military rule has um create it You know children that were born out of rape a lot of our children. we kept. We were silent. That was violent cold but Our grandmothers kept those children love. The women fled to the communities in canada so When jacob stevens wrote the treaty and eighteen off five at portend skill hieaux for the dot. com does he defined as animals. So that was the first time that definition was put into context for writing making it Literal so it we were defined as two thirds human being and one third animal so we're contesting the appropriations and demanding reparations on the definitions Carrying into appropriations. That have only been forty percent. Because we're part animal We went to geneva. Nineteen seventy seven saying we are the red race of the western hemisphere we had to define our selves and we had to to demand that the international community except as human beings. So it's been a life struggle. so. I'm i'm defending primarily. My sister madonna thunder hawk. Who co-founded the women of all red nations so we could follow our spirituality We marched in the two broken treaties. Thanks to author. Hank adams Meet guk ya se He he wrote those and help to define The parameters for all the laws that stat Embrace indigenous people we created we coined the phrase indigenous in geneva to encompass an include all of the natural peoples of the world. I didn't know. I went there thinking. Everybody was a coda. No everybody's the indian no not everybody's indian They were natural people from all over the world and so they clearly had their own definitions of who they were in their identity but we. We thought it was a beautiful thing. And then we're going at gotta jumping here because you really brought forward when we think of identity and sometimes you know when we get into this conversation a lot of times i think of we get into this conversation because of what is written on paper and then we also got to bring in how we define ourselves In our home communities of where identity starts in for many indigenous people that identity starts before you even arrive here that all of those roads that are connected to all those ancestors who have made a pathway. Inner excited to see you start on your own path on you know this this this ground mother earth and thinking about that identity and a lot of people and have heard you to say how we identify how we know ourselves as needed people supersedes anything that can ever be written on paper and i think that also plays into this conversation to a lot of times know when it comes to identity and what the federal government says is true identity. Sometimes how has juxtapose to how we know ourselves is indigenous. People who were born from our ancestors are Vin things sometimes are seen in a different way. And phyllis do get to some more guests. Who are on the line waiting to go But i do want to get your thought when it comes down to the basic roots of what is an indigenous person who is in need of person who is lekota. Where does that go for a lot of. Look to our clans. A lot of us look to how we are named. But for you what is that. Basic basic understanding of who truly is a native person. Who truly is lakota. Phyllis.

"To take care of all the capital to run a coal mines day and night. And you know in mind inc's on indian lands gold silver were not found. But there's oil gas natural resources water and switching land. So we bring you nasty never culture products as well as navajo transitional energy corporation and navajo oil and gas racing though. Yeah being so robert. It sounds like you're in support of Oil and gas development. And you know that there are many tribes out there that use oil and gas development to their economies and two they the support them sustain their livelihoods. And so i wanna throw that back to faith whether you say two tribes that are oil and gas tribes. That might have been able to use either. This pipeline or dakota access or line three as an opportunity for economic development for themselves fate. I think it comes down to the price that is paid with human life. So every whether it's hunting whether it's gathering whether it's well whether it's solar you always way The major life that is either enhanced or taken and the history is a fossil fuels have harmed. Everybody not just indian lights and so i think that's the difficulty desert the second Criteria that comes into play. Is that the shock collars and the gatekeepers of these industries are not us. We're the underlings even if we get employed by them the gatekeepers have a settler colonial hierarchy. Where they're always in charge. We are always secondary even if we get jobs and so. I think that's the the design that we are struggled. This skirmish this Victory that we have against keystone pipeline is really the settler colonial hierarchy. That came in and just ordered us what to do and the feds. The ones that are employees in the federal agencies. They have different boss now And while justin is on the phone You know. I was so excited. When the fort peck came in full bore into the fight because when we testified against the water permit hearings about a month ago. You know what the response was. They said the state of montana said that they got too many comments in the public hearing and they didn't have adequate time to sift through the hearings Comments so they were gonna go ahead. And grant the pipeline. I mean the permit. Does that make any sense. That's a arbitrary decision that oh wait. I only have one employee. I can't go through all your comments. So going to give me plenty of time to read. We're in the middle of a pandemic. We have to stay home. I'm surprised to hear that. It and what i call. That is ectomy decision making the trickster decision making it's like you close your eyes while i eat all your food and so we. We can't close our eyes for a minute. And so i you know. I'm not gonna say anything bad about tribes at ended up doing that. But i know that i do know manifest destiny. I know Settler colonial hierarchy in it's always capitalism does not go well with being a good relative to the earth and water or children's because we have to make these decisions based on our grandchildren's grandchildren's grandchildren and there are a lot of movements. That are pretty excited exciting. Because i know like there's a coalition of native people in the nation that are building back against fuels. There's a lot of young workers in there that are i. Don't like to say the word activists. Because madonna. And i talked about that in the old days. We didn't really have activists. Just did what you did to take care of things for people so we got to come up with a different term. But there's a lot of exciting. There's a group of sacred sites people through native organizer alliance where making some statements and bringing together because we worry about bears ears. We worry about o clock. We worry about all of these sacred sites that are literally being destroyed and where soul inflicted by trump's Trickster Attack i mean he was just like search and destroy and so now. We're recovering enberg where we're going to have to go back to prayers and consolidate and not the last thing that we wanna do is fight each other and so We got some time to think strategize. So i'm excited about these statements that were trying to get into the bike administration and to work together with all levels whether it's elected treaty grassroots. Grandma grandpa and most importantly the young. Thank you. so much for that Faith i really appreciate it justin. We're just right at the end of the hour.

"That's also one eight hundred nine. I needed by did reach out to tc energy the company behind the keystone pipeline and invited them to be on the show today. But i didn't hear back from them As of the start of the show today. And i want to invite you to the conversation. All opinions are welcome here whether you supported the pipeline or you don't support the pipeline. We want to hear from you. Give us a call. The number is one eight hundred nine nine hundred two eight four eight. Let's go to the phones. We've got elizabeth in bridge or south dakota he there elizabeth giving us a call today. Wanna share I wanna say hi to anti faith. Thank you for being voice for us again. and then. I just wanted to say that i really appreciate the fact that biden not just that he rescinded the permit but that he continues to include tribes in the national conversation every time. I've heard them speak. They include us. And that's never happened before. I don't think any presidency. So i'm really grateful for that. And then also the appreciation that you know. I've heard you know people grumbling about the loss of jobs but where we live in bridgier right there on the front line you know that's right where the pipeline was supposed to come through right where we live And so to me. It's like when that pipe was going to break and it was going to break if it ever got into the ground and it was gonna break right by us. We know that we were told that we were showing that and so to me. Recinding that pipeline saved a entire community of life without that river. We would we would was certain death for us. And so i just anybody that supported the pipeline. Wanna ask them you know how many of our lives are worth a few jobs and just you know just so grateful eternally grateful that that pipeline not going into the ground elizabeth. Thanks for giving us a call. Faith you want to say anything to elizabeth. Yeah she's right on about being in the national conversation. And i just saw the order that came out with a consultation Direction that it has to be beyond meaningful and but the thing to keep in mind when you say consultation. That's the domination word consultation. Being set the decision has already been made for what we need to seek is free prior and informed consent. We have to get consent. It's almost like a rape board you. I didn't get consent to get raped at our rivers or land and so we have to remain vigilant. Thank you elizabeth for mentioning that and sorry about that. My dog is barking the joys of hosting from home today. Well thank you so much elizabeth for your call. We really appreciate that and and faith for your words. You know faith. I was thinking about What elizabeth was talking about with the river and I know that there's been some efforts up in your territory and in maori Territory to Establish rivers giving rivers person hood. And i've wondered if you thought about this is an action Towards protecting the water. Yes we actually have been working on it for about a year year and a half and we were able to work closely with the cultural conservancy. And we've been doing the research and looking at how the ones that have declared it. Now remember when the mari did it. They did it out of a settlement. So it's a little bit different. Each situation is different. Some of the language is constructed for a legal battle. some is constructed from mother nature. So you have to examine closely and ours with the missouri river which is very very long we would have to build consensus Or only be in. It doesn't make sense to only protect the rights of a short stretch of the river where we live. So we're going to be convening some meetings with it will check to shock away all the way up to four pack and i'm glad justin is on the phone because we need to have conversations but we do want to exert those rights because the river is relative it's also in western linkage traditional cultural property which is a federal tenant that needs protection it is traditional it is cultural and it is our property. I met an. It's a little bit hard though to explain all of that to people particularly you know. Epa officials or folks who just who don't quite really at you know how Natives natives live their lives particularly traditional people. have you ever felt Just outright frustrated in constantly explaining yourself over and over again. I think In my age with non native people. I've become a little bit more blunt. Because i don't need to do their emotional labor because what i'm doing and i quit talking to people on airlines because i have to do a workshop indian one on one and sorry but what so i just get to the point and usually where the point lives is in the heart if you can talk to their spirit and their heart they even though they might be raised racist they could get it and sometime. There are some that you don't you can't waste the time. So that leaves us to do the inner work of developing our regulatory power. The we have to be working on our water codes. We have to being sovereign is having regulatory power over where we reside and so in the meantime rather than convincing them to be good people. We can be doing a lot of things. Swear now that there's a change in thought that they're gonna have to be good people because of law and policy change so it's pretty exciting time but it really is the art of war Native style indian staff and a lot of that between the the elected officials to treat people the grassroots and going beyond misogyny. We have to realize that we've been impacted by when the patriots left. They left some in place. And so that was part of our healing here in excel and standing around but we can do it. Well i want to add some more voices to the conversation joining us now from the cheyenne river. Sioux in south dakota is madonna thunder hawk. She's a tribal liaison with the likud people's law project and community worker with standing strong grandmothers. And she is lakota. Welcome back to native america calling madonna. Thank you good morning. I was thinking Faith was saying about being blunt and You know that's that's that's something you have also done in the past where you say it like it is and so when you think about saying it like it is when it comes to this pipeline. What do you say well. First of all I just want you to know how much of enjoyed this this program so far i mean faith you know talking and then elizabeth to strong women that you know i have a real strong voice for all of us so i really appreciate listening to them talk.

The fact that i'm still here to witness you know what's going on and and it just it just amazing to me but but yeah you know when you get on you know in years. You just don't have time you know. I'm still in a hurry. You know it gets things done. Can't waste time. You know. China bring people along educate the like like she didn't wanna one you know it's just that you know come on. Let's let's just get on it you know. Let's move ahead. Are you celebrating this victory or you know the Cancellation of the pipeline. Or are you. You know like cautiously excited about.
Dakota Access Pipeline opponent says shes a protector, not a protestor
"I'm Dr Anthony with, and this is climate connections. For decades Madonna Thunder, Hawk of the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe in south, Dakota has fought to protect native land and water. We are a people indigenous to slant and we are attached to the land. We are not protesters we are protectors. Thunder Hawk has become a prominent voice in the movement against the Dakota access pipeline. The pipeline transports crude oil within miles tribal land and Thunder Hawks says, if it leaks or bursts, the oil will pollute local drinking water. We have many small rivers and tributaries on our reservation at pipeline would affect and we know that dangerous. In July, a federal court ordered the pipeline to cease operating until a thorough environmental review is completed. It was a step forward tribal activists and climate advocates worried about the impact of expanding fossil fuel infrastructure. But the pipeline owners have appealed the decision. So its future remains uncertain. And Thunder, Hawks says the work of protecting land and water is ongoing. We've been dealing with this for many years. So it's not a new blight it's just a continuation. So that's why we are always in the protect mode.

"Do is try to dig in there and try to be like Oh. This is in your. This is up for grabs. So the court, decisions mean it means that indigenous people who commit crimes on the eastern Oklahoma reservation, which includes much Tulsa cannot be prosecuted by state or local law enforcement, and must instead face justice and tribal or federal courts. And, though this decision specifically is geared towards the creek nations reservation, it's essentially assume that it's got apply to all the other four tribes the seminole chickasaw. Chickasaw choctaw and Cherokee and there was a joint statement that was put out. Against a amongst the tribes, saying that listen like. You know, we are committed to implementing a framework of shared jurisdiction that will persevere sovereign interests and rights to self government while affirming. Jurisdictional understandings, procedures, laws and regulations and support public safety, our economy and private property rights, so they're not like fuck you Oklahoma. We could fuck. We want like they're like. Oh, here like we're going to create rules. We're GONNA work with you, so we're we're. We're going to figure out taxing zoning and government folks, functions, and all that sort of stuff but also know that there's other underlying theme when you hear these stories that have to deal with You know the climate crisis because they're also being pushed into some of the worst. Building all these chicken farms that are highly toxic and polluting their their creeks, where they do difference ceremonies and have different services and things like that, and they're being pushed out of their land and a and a different other ways, so I think to quotes. Madonna Thunder Hawk who has the best name ever and. She is with the Lakota People's law project. She said she's in North Dakota. She says it's a war for us. There are some victories, but the war continues so this was a definite like a pin in the cap of like a win, but there's still more and I wanted to point this out because I don't think I was getting enough. Attention the history behind it and you know with the renaming of the Washington four skins. What With the renaming of them like they're you know here. There are these victories in you know. We have a native live native lives matter right as well and again. We always look at Likud. WHO's getting fucked over at the very bottom? And how do we make a? Protected because when their rights are protected than everyone is protected exactly. Yeah, thank you. It was very educational. I did not know anything I was like you just heard about you heard about the case. Newly Oh cool. Yeah good, but like no background I didn't any of this or like. Why even start in all the all the first nations people have been asking the government to do was just to adhere to the promise and written agreement that was made and again only they're looking for like all they're looking for is is a upholding the deputies..

"The problem and the ingle of different native non binary and women are different perspectives. I talk to people from all different walks of life and how it affects us and some of the problems my looking at the end and w movement Y so necessary and the fact that we can't find any information on women who are missing and the fact that we very very rarely do any of these cases or women get any kind of publicity is something. That's very painful and something that is slowly coming to light and I'm really excited to see that people are listening And we have you on here today because I would say the word that you do is fantastic in important and we wanted to you kind of have a platform here with us to talk to us about these different fights. I guess is what best way we can put it And movements that you guys are. You're specifically pushing through and trying to get noticed for which is awesome and your own podcast which tried to highlight The different cultures as well as the difficulties in the issues of being multi racial biracial. All those things and you had been included Interracial adoption which applies to me and I was very excited disease which we highlighted your podcast on episode. That's coming that we haven't published yet but has already recorded just happening So today I asked you to come on because it is Native American heritage month record this recording because by the time this is over. We're a little late to talk about. It always good to talk about yes as we should And so you came on and you actually sent a giant list which I love that you WanNa talk about people you want to talk about. So let's go get started. Yeah okay all right. You told me that originally you were thinking about Talkie Butler stoorikhel native biggers particularly women order to spirit people and seizing massive list. But those Bush a tiny tiny little list of amazing women. You can looking to construe. In a lot of native cultures. Women are kind of the bear errors of tradition. A lot of these women who stand out in history were also warriors most of the Tribes Macho lineal which means that plans and traditions are passed down from the mother. It's something that was very women. Were very bull or sometimes a little higher in certain tribes but as colonization and the boarding school tried to westernize the culture. That's one of the things that kinda bleak dim but it's being worked on now the herding ashani confederacy or the Iroquois Confederacy. They are probably one of the most matrimonial groups that I've heard of a group of nations. They just have more female lead tradition. What were some those traditions? One of them I died in his clan passed down from the mother. So if your mother was born in one friend in the fathers and another the mother's fan kind of like lack names but different right. They also have a lot of Meta thin as a lot of women who are famous for being medicine woman so those are two of the biggest things women as leaders and warriors and mothers. Let's just a very revered position in native culture so yeah let's go in and talk about some of these women and you're right. It's not a very vast list is way way way more and there are obviously way way more but for our time and purposes. Let's start with a big figures and names that you WanNa talk about me have for you now Buffalo Calf Road Woman Elizabeth wanamaker. I can't pronounce the her trove. Mitch the Polish sounding name all the things I could not find the station of Thinking though unfortunately can't they Allen Oshkosh call us by and Madonna Thunder Hawk? They're all from different groups and actually two of them opposite sides which is kind of interesting but at twenty per you know. It's the first person on my left. And she is of the Tonga tribe located in Los Angeles based on. And there's a little bit of controversy over what the charges called because one nationally recognized in to the government called the try something else. It's been very interesting calling stations the problem for records But she was mentioned woman who oppose Spanish war when she was nine. The Spanish colonizers invaded colonizers strong Lillard. You know I don't know no okay with it I don't like to call. These are people who are using colonizers to talk about current people. And I think that's a little too harsh of a narrative trying to talk about specifically in awareness and education. But these are actual Choline Role. So good okay. They made it their goal. Of course it converts the People in Erase that cultural practices. I'm sure at the like four pages and everyone history book makes it clear why the poor news Americans needed to learn the western way and he attempts to the Malaysian or conversion resulted in our speeding's torture and even.

So at first I didn't completely understand like why we were getting days off of school. But both my parents are public school teachers, and so they were pretty angry about it. And pretty soon realized that it wasn't just kind of like a fun day office school. It was because they were trying to take away rights and protections for teachers and other workers in the St. Joe's describes how. Youthful activism for labor rights sparked a path in her young life. Definitely this was kind of my I like the first time I was experiencing activism, and I definitely is an activist now and by school, I like participating in marches and protests and being politically active and was really the first time that that was important to me. And I kind of see what was going on. And how people can react to something express. How they don't like something. And just last week.

Basically of caribou goes because I actually didn't know this about caribou caribou used to roam southern Canada. Did you know that didn't know that we still have a lot of caribou in the north in the north but not in the south? Okay. So unlike the southern county like all the way down to like, the US border kind of thing. I believe. Yeah. Like, that's what she seemed to be saying in her like, I'm don't quote me. But like, I attended the Cunanan. This is what she said was that caribou used to roam free in southern Canada. Like like in the west coast here. So very sensitive migration patterns. So once it's disrupted. They don't go back. Exactly. So like, it would make sense development rate. Yeah. And so that's kind of what the what she was saying was like this the poet who the film was inspired by was inspired by the feeling that they got from the caribou goose. Oh, like feeling them all around and like wolf in like, you know, things like that. The slick it was like it was so fucking beautiful. Like, I can't express enough like, especially if you live in the west coast. I saw go so wonderful. Although I actually believed that the the filmmaker is from Toronto or on terro until you went to. Yeah. And I believe that the film actually takes place in onto. But obviously, we're talking about like south northward, not specifically west coast, but I know the filmmaker resides here. Okay, Oris and proud of you for going through that because I know how you feel about geography and God, I know what the movie started onto. Phenomenal. Where's amazing? If people wanted to go see lake do we have to go to theatre. Where can we see this? You know it. It's a good question. I'm not I'm not sure if it will play again at.

Like I mean, they were hard core and by the end you had them laughing with you and the union, say it out loud, but but what I picked up from it was was. Come on guys. You don't really believe this stuff. Like they were like, they didn't say it explicitly, but they're like, yeah, you're right. You know, we're just human together. So you reached a humanity that was underneath the ideology that came from a real love of people. And I think that ultimately. Whether we're social activists who are environmentalists, we have to touch that part of people. Yes, that want the same thing. We want to build a see somebody and say, I know you. I know who you really are. You want to love and cherish and protect women, not abuse them. You wanna take care of life on earth. I know that even if you don't know that and I'm going to hold that not just for you as an individual, but as a new story of the world that we can invite people into and build a society on, you're right about that. Sadly in history, the people who've been best in that people like Hitler, the able to reach beyond the facade of that our individual constructed identity to the essential truth that lays dormant Ono necessarily, perhaps menaul undiscovered somehow within all of us. I agree with that Charles. Now there was moment. We did a list of all turn in financial ideas. Now. On recognized that way you're going when it comes to making economic change, economics, meaning just of distribution of resources, and the manner in which we can is ask, why is that necessarily has to come from a fundamental shift in perspective change now, consciousness practice, perspectives, less scary word launches. So we'll just have to change our perspective on the world. But you did a list of things negative interest, gift economies, universal basic income thing about now. The first time I heard that term was, I think in your book and that's over more popularly discussed idea in the dark web. I'm sometimes inhabit these days. Can you break down for me that all of those ideas just so that we understand them? Sure. They all come from. The question, how do we bring the spirit of gift into the money system. Which spirit of gift. So the spirit of money as we know it is about accumulation and control. The spirit of gift is the opposite in gift culture. You do not hoard resources. You are generous because you have seen your entire life that security and and generosity. Go hand in hand that the that the most generous person, if you give and given give people will take care of you too. So how do you bring that into a money system in a gift culture. You don't. So you do not hoard resources because that would be stupid. You don't get any benefit from hoarding things. You don't even need right now much better to give them to somebody else. And then when you are in need, then they'll take care of you to even from like an, it's not like so calculating, but that's the economic logic underneath it. So. One thing. So negative interest basically is a way to discourage hoarding and and encourage flow. Like if you have a billion dollars and you know that it's going to be subject to say, negative, five percent interest rate, you'd be happy to lend it out at zero interest because if you keep it is going to shrink, it obeys the law of decay with the law of return in nature in ecosystems like that beings do not hoard resources, everything rots and returns to the soil. So if we have money that does not rot, but instead just grows is preserved endlessly. Well, I do think we elected not to emulate the natural Rozhin of resources in our economic systems, but chose instead to invert it and have an interest model. It's about groping cumulation. How do you think that happened? Particularly when Usery and likely either your lending interest is contraband in low of religious ideologies probably will of Madonna thunder research. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, these religious leaders, they were wisdom keepers. They understood that that interest will tear people apart and create competition..
