TUCSON -- Native American Tribes are partnered with corporations responsible for war crimes in Palestine. The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe of Montana is in a partnership with Elbit Systems, an Israeli weapons producer. Salish and Kootenai own International Towers, and in partnership with Elbit, built spy towers, known as integrated fixed towers, on the Tohono O'odham Nation.

Caterpillar, being used for the destruction of Palestinian homes, has a facility located on the Tohono O'odham Nation's Tech Park in the San Xavier District near Tucson.

Raytheon Dine' Facility, is located on the Navajo Nation south of Farmington, New Mexico, and produces missile parts for Raytheon, among the top war profiteers in Palestine.

Raytheon, and International Towers, are tenants at the University of Arizona Tech Park in Tucson.

Ofelia Rivas, Tohono O'odham, lives in the western portion of the Tohono O'odham Nation, where the Salish and Kootenai tribal enterprise constructed the spy towers. Rivas describes the militarized partnership.

Today: A horrific genocide in Rafah refugee camp. Babies and children sleeping in their tents were burned alive. This genocide would not be possible without the US bombs and missiles, sent by Biden and his appointees, and manufactured by U.S. corporations, including Raytheon Missiles.

While searching for other articles today, I found the censored article, and e-mails, that buried the truth about the Raytheon Missiles factory located on the Navajo Nation, while I was a staff reporter at Indian Country Today in 2006.

Diné John Redhouse 'Fifty Years Ago: Uprising and Resistance'

By John Redhouse, Censored News May 24, 2024

On this Memorial Day weekend, we must also remember and honor the many native human rights warriors such as Larry Casuse and other brave indigenous men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in fighting for the lives and future of red people and nations on Turtle Island and throughout the Western Hemisphere—the red quarter of Mother Earth.

In the course of our long, hard, and bloody struggle for survival, since 1492, we are here only because our ancestors fought for our right to live and exist as first people and nations in the Americas.

The Racism in Farmington: What No One Wants to Remember

By Brenda Norrell, Censored News, Updated May 23, 2024

The Racism in Farmington. It is what no one wants to remember, no one wants to think about. Navajos were tortured and murdered here. Genevieve Jackson, Navajo councilwoman, called it a rite of passage for white teens in Farmington.

"White teenagers consider it a rite of passage. They learn it at home."

Barnhart Encounter (05-22-24)

Yesterday (May 21st 2024) at 10:30 am, individuals went to Niionenhiasekowá:ne (Barnhart Island) to begin construction for a residence in a grass clearing on Beach Marina Rd. The three Kanien'kehá:ka men that were on site were unmolested for three hours until five state troopers, six NYPA security, and one St. Lawrence County Sheriff appeared. The encounter was described as amiable. The troopers asked the purpose of their activities to which one man responded, “We are here to build housing for our community… This is Onkwehonwe land.”
