Native American voters helped win presidential election for Joe Biden - Business Insider
"Election, President elect Joe Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state of Arizona in 24 years, and one group who played a major role in flipping the state for Biden was Arizona's native American population. According to high country news counties that included the Navajo nation Hopi tribe and to Hana Autumn Nation, where some of the key areas that helped the president elect carry the state and in the swing state of Wisconsin native voters also appeared to have been part of turning that state blue Now, as president elect Biden prepares to take office, native organizers and tribal leaders want to make sure he doesn't take their votes for granted. My name is Leonard Forstmann I'm chairman of the soup, Warmish tribe and President affiliated tribes in Northwest Indians. Under President Obama Chairman Force Mint was appointed as vice chair of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and last month he endorsed the Biden Harris ticket along with more than 200, other American Indian leaders. And as Biden begins to assemble his Cabinet chairman Force Man has a specific request. Appoint a Native American official as the next secretary of the interior. He and Shannon Whole Z, president of the Stockbridge Muncie tribe made their case in a recent opinion piece for Reuters. When I spoke to the chairman, I asked him to explain why the Department of the Interior is so important to native communities. Many of our Indian programs. Of course, they're housed in Department of Interior, of course, appear opinion affairs. Many other agencies that affect any country who the real land management, the National Park Service. And a lot of this has to do with our trust resource is with your land and water. Cultural resource is sacred places, so it's very important that we have a secretary interior that has a good understanding of Indian country and our values and traditions. What are some of the main environmental issues that are most important to Indian country and that you think the next secretary of the interior should focus on well in the Pacific Northwest. Here we really rely on treaty resource is, as we call them or our natural resource is wildlife, salmon, traditional plants, clean water. Not only for food, but also for medicine and also for our Spiritual life and ceremonial life. We feel that a change in leadership with interior will bring us back from the last four years of focus on Regulation and profits, and that's been demonstrated in a lot of the activities the administration's engaged in that have ignored travel needs and priorities in many parts of the West. Native American voters have played an important role in this year's election that has potentially been Not has talked about, but they did play a big role in battleground states like Arizona. What did that look like this year? What did it look like to get native voters out to the polls and also to ensure that Joe Biden doesn't take those votes for granted? Well, the turnout that came through, especially in some of the battleground states, of course, but these votes are great are important in all the states but especially Arizona, Wisconsin were a statement of the importance of Leader that shows respect for the presidential office sacred duty that leadership has when they're elected by people. The hold the tradition of that office important. I feel that Ah, lot of the turnout was based upon the need for better and stronger commitment to the number the numerous priorities that Indian country has I think that for the Democratic Party to honor those votes that came out, especially a lot of the new voters, I think is too Build upon some of the actions that the Obama administration that Joe Biden was part of and growing those and that's you know, getting more land into trust, rebuild our homelands. You know, investing in medical facilities to take care of our medical needs that are guaranteed with under the trust responsibility. You know, investing in a sustainable economic development. Protecting our natural resource is all those things. He did, including a really strong travel consultation effort. Will be important for the Democratic Party to continue doing as they did in the Obama administration, I believe is one of I believe was the best president for any country that we've had. So in order to keep that vote for the future, I think that we need to continue to do those things and also let people know about him because I think a lot of people don't know enough about what the past administration the Obama administration did. I'm settling a lot of lawsuits that have been lying machine like the call Bell on a contract support loss you a lot of things that were very major influential. I think that we need to make sure that people are aware of those things in the future things that the Biden Harris administration Hopefully has in their transition plan as well. So on the week of the

Of course the bureau of indian affairs and Many other agencies that affect indian country holding the breeland management the national park service and a lot of this has to do with our Trust resources which are land and water and Cultural resources sake replaces. So it's very important that we have a secretary. Interior that has a A good understanding of any country in our values and traditions. What are some of the main environmental issues. That are most important to indian country and that you think the next secretary of the interior should focus on well in the pacific northwest here. We really really rely on Our treaty resources as we call them or our natural resources. Wildlife salmon traditional plant's clean water. Not only for food but also for medicine and also for our spiritual life and ceremonial life and We feel that A change in leadership at the interior prius back from the last four years of of focus on deregulation and prophets seemed to have come over the importance of protecting habitat and Sacred places and that's been demonstrated in a lot of the activities the administration's engaged in that have Ignored tribal needs and priorities in many parts of the west. One of the people that you suggest could hold. The secretary of interior role is representative deb. Holland of new mexico. Who had on the show before and who is a citizen of the laguna pueblo tribe. Why do you think representative holland would be good for the role while we've known deb hall in a congresswoman now for at least a one term or more and She's demonstrated his Commitment to indian country obviously being a member of laguna pueblo and very close to their traditions and values which are very similar. Many trump's across the nation the importance of place and landscaped. The cultural landscape be importance of our traditions. Our stories our way alive on. It's all connected strongly to respect dean and holding our lands and waters sacred to our survival As an people something very important to us so we really believed that coming for new mexico deb has an understanding of energy policy and also understanding of the importance of environmental and resource protection. So i think she'll be a good candidate for trying to balance those two things in her leadership of the department.

"national park service" Discussed on Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA
"All right question for you right out of the box this morning were watching yesterday president trump's presser and deger heart skip a beat as did mine when president trump was escorted out of the briefing by a secret service I'm sorry I was having flashbacks I did not want to have six oh, eight, thirteen, ten Kfi a thirteen ten KFI K. A.. Dot Com northern Colorado's voice mornings with AOL live and local via the auto collision Specialists Studios. But it was reminiscent of that fateful day and you know what? I'm talking about nine eleven. You remember when President Bush President Bush was at that school. Okay. He was at Emma, Booker Elementary. School. And basically he was there to talk about his plans for education reform right and he's sitting there he's reading a book. Do you remember the name of the book? He was reading this book. I believe. It was a second grade class if I'm. Not. Mistaken. It was the pet goat. He was reading the pet goat and as the story went he was. Originally informed very discreetly. About. The first plane, the first plane. That crashed into one trade center. and. You had one of his staff tell it was probably just a small propeller plane. So he continued reading and then the students read the pet goat well. It was then White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card that interrupted the president lean down whispered in his ear. A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack and I couldn't help but flashback to that, and then there was all the caterwauling, all of the media misinterpretation of. What followed because if if you flash back to that day. You remember. President Bush sat there. With. This look stunned disbelief horror on his face and who could blame Him Wall Street Journal described it as the president was trying to keep under tight control. But despite the president's efforts, the students knew that something was. Dramatically drastically. Wrong. They later said that the president's face became red and serious and his expression was flabbergasted. That's pretty good word for a second grader flabbergasted shocked. And horrified. He then got a cue card from his press secretary Ari Fleischer Ari. Fleischer. That said, don't say anything yet. But I couldn't help but just reflect on that yesterday president trump was doing that presser and was summarily and quickly escorted out of that white. That White House briefing. What happened? Well apparently, that was a security measure. But he quickly returned. To tell reporters there was a shooting outside of the White House and of course, Secret Service doing their jobs and getting him into a safe place. Secret Service just last night provided the details of the shooting in a tweet saying that a fifty one year old male allegedly approach a uniform division officer this according to a piece out of Fox News who was standing at his post on the corner of Seventeenth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue near the white. House, the man told the agent he had a weapon and while he approached took off in a sprint. And in a drawing motion. I might add a threatening motion withdrew an object from his clothing. The suspect according to the statement from the Secret Service? The suspect then crouched into a shooter stance as if about to fire weapon that point the agent fired his weapon and struck the subject in the torso, no additional details were provided on that. Once. Again, some scary moments yesterday was just me or did you have that horrific flashback? To that horrific.

Lynn Hunter and her family are from Kansas, your that Kansas, even grandson, Noah will tell you. Don't want anybody think we are same goes for just about any place that's been in the news recently for having spikes in Cova Cases Families like the hunters are driving national parks like yellowstone in droves right now, king to escape from wherever are trying to salvage a summer of stress and they know that it comes with risks we were scared to come really we've been planning it for a long time.

Their pocket books during the pandemic it's a risk that many are willing to take and so foreign yellowstone it seems to be paying off definitely get for the business community I think that you know in May they may have thought that they might not make it through the end of the year, and now they're seeing record breaking numbers juries.

It's perfectly conceivable on the going back to phase three again, the indoor dining, you know that's on hold until a point that we feel it's acceptable. We have not put a timeline to that. So we may say, for phase for some things, they're going to float while we figure out what makes sense. Fazio said. We're looking at this national reality and the uptick and looking at it very soberly, he said. We've got to decide how we feel about different pieces of phase for and if we're really ready for Monday or for a different approach or different timeline.

You can't deny when you look at these images how beautiful the landscapes are nowhere. Does the Earth speak to us more clearly or with more eloquent tongue in the valley of Light Yosemite?

My Name's Jesse read and I'm a CO founder of Standards Manual who was the publisher of parks atop the purple country. Wealth Carolina and Tennessee Land Bridge from what we understand there was no mandate in terms of how each of these maps and brochures needed to be designed.

The National Park Service has set up long range plans for the preservation and join us because there were so many new national parks being open to the public. Each park had a personality of its own. And so that's where I think the covers really came through and the designer likely was trying to communicate the very distinct personality of the part Yosemite is very different from the everglades different from the grand tetons and so forth. There's a series that came inside of an envelope. Eight different brochures and the bottom of the map. There's a square that has some sort of abstract representation of what different region? It was represented. There are some features that look like mountains like triangles used and stripes. That look like a sunset. It's abstracts modern art. They don't look like parks at all. Probably the regional style had a lot to do with. It likely came out of the offices on the East Coast in New York or Washington and there was some sort of influence of European modernism into the design of these that introduction of the units system developed by awesome the NELLIE system was designed in a way to keep costs down initially vidalis trying to create a beautiful design and also a very uniform system so they weren't having to do all these different paper sizes and designs and hiring other agencies so essentially just a very easy template of rows and columns and one typeface that any designer who would be working at any office of the national parks could use to Put together a new map brochure. Bonelli assigned to it pelvic and then a few different sizes of how Helvetica should be typeset within the unit grid. There were only a few decisions that the designer needed to make an order to visually meet the requirements of the piece of communications for the national parks around two thousand two when they started straining away from the unit grid system. The finale developed today they use I would say loosely a version of the unit grid. But I think it's gone off the rails a little bit. The typeface has changed. And I think it's a little bit looser in terms of its functional requirements pox. Bill did not in the beginning then directed the preservation.

"Six nine and AM seven forty KCBS. KCBS news time ten twenty. The National Park Service is looking to place new rules that could affect demonstrations around the White House and the National Mall. Now, this idea is to require people who apply for demonstration permits to pay a fee to cover the cost of the protests. The tab previously was picked up by the federal government groups such as the American Civil Liberties union say that cost puts an unconstitutional price on free speech. There's the public comment period for the proposed new rules, and that's ends tomorrow for a closer look at the proposals and their potential effects were joined now on the KCBS ring central Newsline by James Taylor, political science, professor at the university of San Francisco. Thank you as always for taking a few minutes to talk to us. Let's begin with simply what these rules are. And what they are intended. Or why the government says they're being proposed by the National Park Service. The leaders of the method FOX services have argued that these are old of sort of provision that needed to be updated long before the Trump administration came into power. So that this is not coincidental. The president sort of irritation towards know, free speech or even free free assembly that this had to do a bureaucratic matters. And there's about fifteen miles that I read which with an open ended sort of opportunity for more rules to be made that basically limit, for example, and cut back. Eighty percent of the sidewalk space allowable in the mall across from the White House. It also as you suggested in the lead or charge people monies that are too much of any sort of grassroots organizations to afford, and the government is always pay those fees. And now they want to turn it back to the public. Now, what has been the response to this? We understand the ACLU is to put it mildly. None too happy about this. Aco you successfully sued in Vietnam era when the Nixon administration and the Johnson administration tried to curtail protests. Are you have the women's March? You have the participants for civil Justice is the organization you have to imagine that conservative civil libertarians and free speech conservatives who believe in small government, small government conservatives would also be sort of bothered by these developments. And so you have these sort of I'm sort of motley crew of of of different groups that would be opposed to this. And we'll see the reactions because within a few hours of the posting of these of the national park service's of intentions ten thousand people responded immediately comments alone in the public comments opportunity. So this is a I think one of a if you put this in the context of all of the other developments the way, the president has sort of attack the free press and now talking about free speech. Express openly himself that we should limit marches, and and and things like that. So it sort of seems to really bother people around this sort of question of the rights of people in terms of civil liberties now in terms of in terms of raising this money there there's a couple of things that I'm curious about one is does the National Park Service saying whether or not they have tried to have their budget increased. If if the argument is that they can't afford a lot of the maintenance that that goes into dealing with these marches the wear and tear on turf or protecting monuments. And is there any kind of plan afoot to deal with the fact that millions upon millions of tourists come to Washington DC every year and probably are putting wear and tear on the same things. I think you make a great point this. We have to sort of be generalized for the to everyone, you know, twenty million people who come into Washington DC on a regular basis. And it can't be limited only to protest activities in terms of you know, justifying these fees, suddenly or or protest activity because of all the. Goose-step make applications. Parcel services. Protests type groups are the least inclined and overall applications to the national parks and services for protest activity is down about thirty percent from about nine hundred year to about six hundred a year recently. So, you know, this is sort of targeting a problem that does not exist much like the voting issue of a voter fraud in America. And it just goes to the larger problem of the Trump administration sort of concerned with democracy to me, this has to do with going against the public trust between government, and there's a compromise between government and the public institution doesn't talk about democracy. But the constitution talks about the people the rights include democracy, and then the constitution guarantees the powers of the three branches of government. Here's a certain public trust inherit in the right to assemble. And it goes back since the very beginning of our country. And then in the beginning. Political rivals who established acts like the alien and sedition acts to target groups into an American society, always backfired, and this is ominous for the I think that the Trump administration as it relates to only two different groups that will be around up by this act by this policy and our last question before we have to let you go. The next step. If I understand the process of changing rules with the government correctly is that after the public comment period ends, which is tomorrow. The government has to thoroughly address significant comments, or perhaps even all of them has to respond if you could read the tea leaves, what do you think would happen if the National Park Service response, and then says, okay, we're going to enact these rules anyway. Well, I think you'll have a similar kind of backlash that you had when the president was talking about these national military parades in the same in the same space before the White House and the backlash association and people tallied up the cost and how much it would actually impact the budget and the Donald Trump backed off of it. I think this is the public reaction continues to press against the administration's desire as Trump is repeatedly that he will back down if there's enough pressure. And so I don't think this'll be successful. Is public pressure continues on government in reaction to this? All right. Well, we thank you as always for taking a few minutes to talk to us.

So for people who don't know national monuments are part of the National Park Service that's their property and they patrol it and their national park. Police are there. Well, there's a location called Oregon ORG a an organ pipe cactus national monument. In. It's in Arizona. Far southern part of the state right near the border with Mexico. Well on February third nineteen seventy one. A woman thirty two years old named Carol Turner who was a student at the university of New Mexico. Drove there, and what's going to take a few days vacation break from school and kind of walk around. She was inquisitive smart, athletic brilliant, some people called her. Well, I Don boulevard onto this case and saw some archive somewhere. And I immediately wrote to the Pima county sheriff symphony documents on the case. I got the documents in my hand that I called the National Park Service at Oregon pipe and ask them for their reports. And they stay at it. We don't have any. I should have you heard of the case. No, well, this person still missing. So she was a thirty two year old graduate student. She had been a PE teacher with a master's degree in physical education decided she wanted to go back and get to more masters degrees.

And it said if I'm not back by four thirty pm on February third, please contact the ranger smart smart thing to do. Exactly. I wish everybody would do that. But then as I went through this. I started to think she was going to a place, and she was heading to a place that she'd went to earlier, and I always wondered in the back of my mind. It's something happened that first trip and she was going back the second time in just in case. She was leaving this. No, I wasn't sure.

"In our last episode, we explored the tension between rural Alaskans who've been accustomed to living and thriving autho land that in nineteen eighty suddenly became the purview of the National Park Service with a mandate of conservation that sometimes was at odds with how these Alaskans live their lives. That tension boiled into some violence and continued for years. How relations with Alaskans now, how has the park service and its relationship with these last changed? It's a really difficult question to answer because some of the answers depend on where you're where you're living and the relationships that people have with park staff and park management. I would say on the whole thing's of things have changed rather dramatically since nineteen eighty. When a number of allows Ken's. And again, I'm speaking generalities now, but. But Saul understood the creation of parks refuges up here as a a, locking up of the land. And I think over the years, many more Alaskans have begun to see that and understand it's it's not a lock up of land, but it's it's a locking the gates open if you will, where as development and and and extraction activities are prohibited if not severely limited it. Most national parks that the fact that national parks in the wilderness resources in the the wildlife that the contain provide not only an opportunity for recreation and recreation, but also the economics if you will. I think that as I looked back over two thousand seventeen I understand that the economic benefit of parks in Alaska equated to about one point, nine billion with a b. dollars. There were two point eight million. Visitors and nineteen thousand jobs, specifically connected to National Park Service units in Alaska more than four hundred private businesses operate in national parks in Alaska. And I think Alaskans have seen that there are opportunities benefits that are not necessarily consumptive, but in other words, can be utilized over and over again through tourism and the fact that people not only from our country, but the world over once it comes to Alaska to see its naturalness. Tin, joy, the the, the empty horizons. And so that's helped over the years. Now there are certainly places and there are certainly communities that look to their backyards where a national park site is located in and would still say to this day, you know, we were. We were never asked and you know, we, we don't welcome. This and I end I'm certainly in my position used to to communicating with people who have those sentiments. And then of course, there are those who live in the off the beaten track places, the rural communities in the Bush. Some of those individuals probably wish that there were more development, an extrication activities and businesses, but many, many others, many others, I think, have been become grateful and voice gratefulness that the national parks house established by Nilka with the provision for subsistence in traditional lifeways have made an have allowed them to continue their lifestyles that otherwise would have been would have been gone. And so as as I started, it's a mixed bag, but I think more Alaskans probably more than ever see national. Parks, national park sites in Alaska as benefit. One of the other tensions that the National Park Service has had to deal with was, is that of wildlife and in particular predators and humans. I know that for twenty years, the National Park Service has been monitoring the wolf packs in your Yukon Charley rivers, national preserve, but there perhaps it's been some some difficulty with that program. Do you? Can you tell us what you perhaps we're trying to do and and what's been happening recently, I be happy to rights. So over twenty years ago, the staff who managed and worked in Yukon Charley rivers national preserve began to look very hard at the wolf population in particular back then the idea was to try to understand wolf ecology and what that predator did or its impact on not. Just care boo, and moves, but the larger ecosystem in the national preserve and to try to understand what predator prey relationships meant. And for over twenty years that we the National Park Service had a capture and collar program that would help us understand how many animals in and were they traveled in and where where they would den in and what have you..

"It it's just incredible but i digress let me talk about some of the least visited parks in the or not parts but the sites in the national park service system getting only three thousand three hundred visitors a year is the nicodeme as national historic site in kansas the nicodeme us national store excite was actually the first black settlements in the great plains of back in eighteen 77 anna commemorates that the eugene o'neill national historic site in california which is a place that quite frankly i've tried to visit uh but i couldn't what makes the special is so author eugene o'neill this was his house it's in the san francisco bay area but it's in a residential neighborhood so it's not like most places that have a visitor's center you drive up in the parking lot you you know they have their bookstore and things like that the visitor's center is actually several miles away you have to make a reservation to go there and what they do is they will then take a vanload of people over to the home and drive you back on this is all done basically so there's not a lot of traffic and it upsets the neighbors who have actual homes and as result in only gets a little over three thousand visitors a year so like about one hundred a day probably less than that and you factor in the days that it's not open on the bering land bridge national preserve and alaska which is the chunk of alaska closest to russia gets about twenty six hundred visitors a year that's what got two thousand fourteen the thaddeus cosio scoot national memorial in pennsylvania this is a place i've actually visited this is in philadelphia right in the heart of philadelphia the old part of town major city one of the least visited places in the national park system and why is that you'd think if it's in a big city would get more visitors fourteen hundred visitors in 2014 and the reason is one it is physically these smallest site in the national park system meaning it smaller than the jefferson memorial everything else is just one building in philadelphia.

"Um so as prices are no longer parks and of the places that are currently parks right now it's very interesting to look at what are the most popular and most visited national parks in the united states so the most visited are pretty obvious you've probably heard of most of them the would be number one is the great smoky mountains national park and i think that gets about eight million visitors a year and the reason why the great smoky mountains get so many visitors is that you have of the parkway that goes through it and in it connects north carolina in tennessee so there's a lot of people that drive through the park grand canyon gets five and a half million visitors a year rocky mountain which is not far from denver it get several million visitors a year yosemite and yellowstone zion signs actually not far from vegas our member it's a it's a couple of hours had visited their as part of a photography to her iran several years ago olympic national park which is in the olympic peninsula not far from seattle gets of visitors grand teton just south of yellowstone acadia in glacier in these are even even glaciers not easy to get to but it's along with yellowstone you know one of the big parks one of the best known parks but the lesser known parks i think are often times equally interesting and when he pull up a list of some of the the lesser visited national parks the least visited park in the current park system is gates of the arctic national park in alaska and that's one of two parks that we have which are north of the arctic circle gates of the arctic and kobuk valley both of which get approximately ten to fifteen thousand visitors a year and they don't really breakdown what constitutes a visit so for example i'm gonna be visiting gates of the arctic later this year i'm going to be going up to alaska in you can fly in that's pretty much the only way you get there is is by flying in and you can take a day trip you can kanther overnight there are absolutely no facilities there's no visitor's center of no store no nothing you fly in an end your premachandran round they don't even of as far as i know campsites so you just pitcher tent were.

"Whether something is considered lesser or greater i think most people would agree that the national park designation is kind of the cream of the crop these are the best places within the national park system which is why you sometimes see national monuments upgraded to a national park the most recent example of this was pinnacles national park in california which was a national monument i visited pinnacles national monument new sometime in the late 90s i forget it's actually south of san francisco and several years ago the president upgraded this to a national so now it's pinnacles national park and there's been several other examples of this of something going from national monument to national park and it seems to be something that each president tries to create one new national park during their tenure in office so they don't create a lot of new national parks i'd say you can expect may be one or two two crew be created every decade or so the peso certainly slow down of four hundred at eleven sites that include the battlefields the monuments in in whatnot of there's a lot of different things so if you go to washington dc all of the public monuments including the city parks because washington dc federal district are all technically maintained by the national park service so you will so of those four hundred eleven that includes the monuments such as the lincoln memorial the jefferson royal washington monument things like that of the mall vietnam veterans memorial the fdr memorial all that's those are separate national park service sites but then there's also parks within washington d c which are also considered a part of it and then there's wolf trap which is a national part of the performing arts which is not an actual park it's its own thing and it's basically just a venue for concerts and plays and and things like that but it's technically considered part of the national park service and one hundred one of the.
