NEW YORK -- Join the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network for 'Indigenous Women Protecting Earth, Rights and Communities', a public event to be held in New York City on April 26, during the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. We are thrilled to be presenting this event with the collaboration of MADRE and ClimateMama!

WHAT: Indigenous women around the world are impacted first and worst by the effects of environmental destruction and a rapidly changing climate, their disproportionate vulnerability the result of a dangerous intersection of colonialism, racism and patriarchy. However despite all odds and against great challenges, it is these very same Indigenous women who are rising up, challenging the status quo, holding a vision, and taking action to build the vital solutions needed for a just and livable future for everyone.
Included in the topic discussions will be resistance efforts from Standing Rock to the Amazon; Indigenous rights and frontline communities; the tenth anniversary of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples; and women's leadership and calls for action within a climate justice framework.

WHEN/WHERE: April 26 from 1:00 - 4:00, United Nations Church Center - 777 United Nations Plaza #8g, New York, NY 10017

HOW: This event is free and open to the public, please register here!

Please post & distribute.
MNN. April 18, 2017. We are onkwe-hon-weh, the natural people of great turtle island. We are placed here by creation, not by other humans. We must survive in harmony with creation. 
tsik-ni-katsi-ni-ohten, are the people who came here from Europe and means “They do not have the ways of human beings”. They have no natural birthright here. Their language is man-made so as to limit their ability to contemplate as part of nature. They are controlled by an elite group that determines everything they believe, how to live, their wars that cause agony, pain and death. They create weapons to kill the earth and us and everything that is natural. 
They escaped Europe when they had turned their world into into a sewer.  
We have suffered 500 years of genocide from people who are addicted to evil.  
They have the same 5 senses as us – sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. Missing is a sense of natural conscience, the inner sense of what is right or wrong in their conduct and motives. Man made religions are used to justify their destructive actions.
They do not know truth or reality. gari-w-io is the perfect reality based on co-existing with nature. 
For them it is easier to lie then to tell the truth. Tell it enough times and eventually everyone accepts it. Fake news and false flags are like water off a duck’s back to them.   
Our way is those who tell the truth depend on actual memories and facts. 
Societies based on lies live in fear and use threats and intimidation to maintain their power, called “gun boat diplomacy”.
We are being asked to tell the public about our suffering. Then the perpetrators say, “So sorry”. We are then suppose to forget the brutality of the last five centuries. We won’t. What then? We say, “Never again!”
Perry Como has some ideas about life after the clean-up. [Breezing along with the breeze]:  “I’m just breezin’ along with the breeze, Trailing the rails, I’m a roamin’ the seas. Like the birdies that sing in the trees, Pleasin’ to live, livin’ to please.  The sky is the only roof I have over my head, And when I’m weary, mother nature makes me a bed. I’m just goin’ along as I please, Breezin’ along with the breeze.”

Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Cheyenne River Lakota
First Voices Radio, Tuesday, April 18, 2017 — Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse talks with two guests in this edition of “First Voices Radio.” His first guest is James Martinez, a media ecologist, radio talk show host and pioneer in radio broadcasting and behavior modification. James has long collaborated to support Cold Fusion —L.E.N.R., “low energy nuclear reactions — as fact and a necessary antidote to the liberation of the human race.
In 2013, after months of planning and at the request of the now late Russell Means, James made the arrangement for the first donated Cold Fusion device from America be given to The Russell Means Library for the Lakota Nation and for Russell Means. More information can be found at and More information about James Martinez is at
Tiokasin’s second guest is Dwaine Perry, Chief of the Ramapough Lunaape Nation located in Mahweh, New Jersey. Chief Perry has a long history of advocacy and has sat with elders and Indigenous leaders in the Himalayas, the Andes and throughout North America, seeking and coalescing the seeds of unity and truth remaining in the colonized mind. He champions human rights today, focusing primarily on issues concerning the Ramapough Lunaape Nation and the Indigenous community at-large.
Chief Perry's journey to Standing Rock last year resulted in the establishment of the Split Rock Sweet Water Camp in Northern New Jersey where the people have been met with much the same hostility as those at Standing Rock. Recently, Chief Perry has called for all peoples in the New York region to stand united against all forms of environmental genocide, greed and avarice. Find out more at the Split Rock Prayer Camp Facebook page.

Indigenous Peoples Hold Earth Day Forum to Address Nuclear Threats


Indigenous Peoples Hold Earth Day Forum to Address Nuclear Threats

Contact: Ian Zabarte 

LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Indigenous Peoples from Western Shoshone, Havasupai, Diné (Navajo), and Paiute Nations will gather on Earth Day 2017 to address nuclear threats. The Native American Forum on Nuclear Issues 2017 (NAFNI 2017) will be held Saturday, April 22 from 1:00 pm until 8:00 pm at the UNLV Barrick Museum Auditorium. The forum will address the renewed threat of the proposed Yucca Mountain High Level Nuclear Waste Repository, new uranium mining at the Grand Canyon, the thousands of abandoned uranium mines spread throughout the US, desecration of sacred sites, and cancer risks.

Trump has proposed $120 million to re-initiate the licensing process for the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository. Energy Secretary Rick Perry, who recently toured the site, is being sued by Texas officials who are pushing to have Yucca Mountain permitted within one year.
Nevada state officials are opposed to the licensing and have intervened in suit.

Since 1951 the US and UK have conducted nuclear testing within Western Shoshone homelands causing a wide variety of adverse health consequences know to be plausible from exposure to radiation in fallout. The proposed Yucca Mountain high level nuclear waste repository, if licensed, will add significant risk factors to the lives of the Shoshone and Paiute people. Yucca Mountain, in the heart of the Western Shoshone Nation, is also sacred site for Shoshone and Paiute peoples.

According to Ian Zabarte, Secretary of the Native Community Action Council, “Yucca Mountain is within the Shoshone treaty boundary and therefore cannot meet the licensing requirement of ownership since the treaty is in full force and effect. This is our primary contention at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Atomic Safety Licensing Board.”

Who:            Michael Lerma, Professor at Northern Arizona University
                    Ian Zabarte, Native Community Action Council
                    Carletta Tillousi, Havasupai Tribal Council Member
                    Joe Kennedy of the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe
