Mobilizing for Global Community and Mother Earth

September-October 2023 Newsletter

In our transition to a new season, we acknowledge the celestial shift that welcomes Fall. It’s at this time that we are invited into moments of self-reflection and deeper community care. These transitions remind us of our connectedness to all of our relatives and Mother Earth, inevitably strengthening our efforts to protect, uplift and honor all beings and our collective future.

In our September/October newsletter, we continue to uplift community action and advocacy efforts within our larger communities across Turtle Island. Whether we are coming together in moments of celebration and joy, or rallying against violence, we do so collectively, acknowledging that none of us are free until we’re all free.

Ceasefire and Stop Genocide!

NDN Collective Calls for Cease Fire, End of Military Aid to Israel

Graphic Art by NDN Collective.

Following an attack by Hamas that resulted in what Representative Ilhan Omar called, “the brutal slaughter and hostage-taking of innocent civilians—including women, children and seniors,” Israel officially declared war on Hamas.

People across the United States – and the world – have been rising up and demanding an immediate end to the war. On Monday, over a dozen U.S. representatives introduced legislation calling for a ceasefire.

“We firmly believe that we all deserve to live and die in peace, whenever death comes for us. We mourn the lives already lost and feel dread knowing that many more will die. This is why we must rise up now and hold the U.S. government accountable in the funding of and profiteering from this war.”

All Things Indigenous

Celebrating, Remembering and Building Power in the Hesápa on Indigenous Peoples’ Day

From the NDN Blog:

“This event is to celebrate being Indigenous,” said Murray Lee, NDN Collective Director of Community Engagement. “South Dakota was the first state in the nation back in 1990 to change Columbus Day to Native American Days so it’s to recognize that and the community in which we live.”

Scores of people joined NDN Collective to march from the Bandshell at Memorial Park to Main Street Square, where the performances and festivities took place. Among the crowd were locals as well as families that drove from out-of-state to celebrate the day. NDN Collective spoke with attendees on what Indigenous Peoples’ Day meant to them, and asked fun questions ranging from which character from Reservation Dogs they felt represented them, and their ways of celebrating the day.

 On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Supporters Call for Unity and Justice in the Wake of Hate Crime Shooting of Indigenous Activist Jacob Johns

Graphic design by NDN Collective.

Marking Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Indigenous groups and supporters are calling for unity and justice for Jacob Johns, an Indigenous activist from Spokane, WA. Jacob was shot and gravely wounded by a domestic terrorist during a peaceful prayer ceremony on September 28, 2023 in Española, New Mexico.

“If anyone doubts that Indigenous people aren’t safe in this country, this shooting should dispel those doubts. What happened to Jacob is part of the ongoing legacy of colonization and continued threat of white supremacist violence facing Indigenous Peoples across the country. The shooting is another reminder that Indigenous Peoples literally risk their lives simply by gathering in prayer,” said Janene Yazzie, Southwest Regional Director of NDN Collective.

Press Release | Call to Action: No $100,000 Oñate Statue

Rio Arriba County in Northern New Mexico is spending more than $100,000 to move a statue of conquistador and colonizer, Juan de Oñate, out of storage to display it in front of their county offices.

This is not about a statue; this is about the settler colonial system that allows racist politicians like Rio Arriba County Commissioner Alex Naranjo to do as they please on stolen land.

The people of the Española valley have a long history of working in solidarity with each other to defend and care for the land, as seen with the Battle of Chimayo and the Taos rebellion, where Pueblos, Nuevomexicanos, and Genízaros resisted settler colonial violence from US occupiers and the ruling elites.

#FreeLeonardPeltier Gathers in Washington, DC

Allies caravan to demand Leonard’s freedom & honor his 79th birthday

Leonard Peltier, a citizen of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians (ND), activist, member of the American Indian Movement (AIM) and elder, is the longest-serving Indigenous political prisoner in United States history. For nearly 50 years, Indigenous activists, organizers, and allies have spoken out about the flawed prosecution, trial, and conviction that led to Leonard’s unjust incarceration.

NDN Collective has consistently joined these efforts, and on September 8th embarked on a caravan to Piscataway lands, aka Washington D.C., to demand Leonard’s freedom and honor his 79th birthday.

A caravan of supporters, family, and loved ones departed after ceremony from Rapid City, South Dakota en route to Washington, D.C.– a 1,600 mile journey that arrived on Monday, September 11.

“Getting arrested today, I’m resisting. I’m dissenting against the 48 years that Leonard Peltier has been illegally incarcerated by the United States government,” said Nick Tilsen, CEO and President of NDN Collective. “I’m dissenting against the system, white supremacy, the police state and the system of incarceration and we’re doing it in solidarity with Leonard Peltier.”

Blog | 4 Fossil Fuel Projects that Harm Indigenous Communities

This Climate Week in New York City is particularly important and unique, because on the eve of this week of action, the climate and environmental justice movements aligned on one message to the President of the United States and leaders of this country: END FOSSIL FUELS. This is no longer a question of whether such a decision will be beneficial, but rather a certainty that fossil fuels will not carry us into the future safely or sustainably.

The following four fossil fuel projects are without a doubt, human rights atrocities and need to be stopped along with all new fossil fuel-related developments that will inevitably harm all peoples, the climate and biodiversity.

[Video] Blatant Discrimination

Native Men Forced to Turn Shirts Inside Out for Entry to Central States Fair in Rapid City

Screen grabs from video: A Native American man with an NDN Collective t-shirt on, responding to demands from security to turn his shirt inside out in order to get inside the fairgrounds.

Over the August 26th weekend, security at the Central States Fair in Rapid City forced at least three Native American men to turn their T-shirts and clothing inside out before entering. One shirt read “NDN Collective,” another read “American Indian Movement,” and a third was a vest with patches reading “American Indian Movement,” “I am My Brother’s Keeper,” and “Remember Wounded Knee.”

“Discrimination is the effect of seeds of fear being perpetually planted – and incidents like this remind us that America was built on the villainization of Indigenous people,” said Sunny Red Bear, action organizer at NDN Collective.

What Indian Country Needs to Know About the Indian Arts and Craft Act

Photo by Emre on Unsplash.

The Indian Arts and Crafts Act (“the IACA”) was first passed by Congress in 1935 and functions as a “truth-in-advertising” law. In the most general terms, the IACA makes it unlawful for anyone to falsely sell or market an “Indian product” as one that is Native-made.

The BIA recently announced that the agency would be revising the regulations carrying out the IACA. Among the many amendments proposed in BIA’s draft is a significant change in the way “Indian product” is defined, one that would bring regulation of agricultural products under the umbrella of the Indian Arts and Crafts Act for the first time in the Act’s 88-year history.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Proposes Rule

RE: Fluid Mineral Leases and Leasing Process

This proposed rule aims to enhance the administration of oil and gas-related activities on America’s public lands and reflects provisions in recently enacted laws that modify aspects of the Federal onshore oil and gas program.

Given that the regulatory framework for oil and gas leasing has not been updated since 1988, we have in this proposed rule a rare opportunity to steer Federal policy toward respecting Indigenous sovereignty and preserving treaty lands.

Reclaiming the Rivers

Indigenous Defiance and the Fish Wars

Trigger Warning: This blog contains words, images and video displaying acts of police brutality/state violence against Indigenous Peoples. Please proceed with care.

From the NDN Blog,

In the early twentieth century, Native peoples protested Wasington state’s illegal fishing regulations by simply continuing to fish, thereby exercising their treaty fishing rights. Because the U.S. Constitution defines treaties as “the supreme law of the land,” tribal nations throughout Washington also filed lawsuits against state officials for violating their treaty fishing rights, but the state continued to violate the treaties.

Our connection to the water sustained our cultural ways, and we deeply revered and respected the life of the water for what it gave us, even viewing it as its own community with which we had a reciprocal relationship.
