Please post & distribute.  MNN. APRIL 26, 2018. The illegal government of Canada, the Assembly of First Nations, band and tribal councils, national, provincial and territorial organizations get their kicks from the sadistic pleasure they enjoy by mistreating us.  They rubber stamp the government’s hit and run atrocities and then they think they can continue to enjoy the destruction of our people.   Read article http://mohawknationnews.com/blog/2018/04/27/afn-hit-and-run-killers/

Testimony of Dailan Long, Dineh, Burnham, Navajo Nation Censored News Hello, my name is Dailan Long and I represent my Navajo tribal community of Burnham, New Mexico in the four corners region of New Mexico on the Navajo Reservation.  I serve on the Board of Directors for Diné Citizens Against Ruining our Environment and I’m here to state my deep opposition to USEPA proposal to weaken the 2015 coal ash rules: Firstly, I vehemently oppose EPA’s proposal to reverse the 2015 oversight and compliance measures of coal ash oversight and management.  I speak to this subject as my community currently bears the brunt of toxic coal ash, waste disposal, air pollution, water contamination, and health impacts as a result of the massive coal-extractive industry complex.  As a tribal citizen, I reside along the Chaco River watershed and its tributaries, which are directly affected by the F…

AFN TERRORISMPosted on April 24, 2018
Please post & distribute. MNN. Apr. 24, 2018. The Assembly of First Nations, the national, provincial and territorial INDIAN organizations and band and tribal councils are terrorist organizations. They use terror as a weapon to help eradicate all native people. Violence and threats are calculated to attain political and economic goals through coercion and fear.  AFN and the others belong on the list of agents of repression who carry out the thuggery for the corporate cartel of the invaders.  http://mohawknationnews.com/blog/2018/04/24/afn-terrorism/

Counting Coup at the United Nations

NEW YORK -- The first week of the 17th session of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues ended on a positive note for the work done by the delegation of AIM-WEST.   AIM-WEST youth delegates Thorne LaPointe spoke under item #4; Chief Valentin Lopez spoke under item #8; and Ms. Jean Roach spoke on item #10.  
The AIM-WEST delegation also conducted a side-event (workshop) on Wednesday, April 18, in the morning to a overcrowded yet up-beat room. But it wasn’t until Thursday that the voice for Human Rights Defender/ Political Prisoner Leonard Peltier was heard loud and clear under item #10 (and response of solidarity overwhelming!).  So much solidarity was expressed from the floor for Leonard’s case after Ms. Jean Roach spoke that the Chairperson of the UN PFII Ms. Aboubacrine (Tuereg), had to hit the gavel several times to quiet the room!   (see video at 2:32:08). http://webtv.un.org/watch/6th-plenary-meeting-permanent-forum-on-indigenou…

FALLON, Nevada -- In a town with a history of racism and violence toward Native people -- Fallon, Nevada -- Native Americans gathered to remember and honor Indigenous Missing People, just across from the courthouse and police station.
Buck Sampson, Paiute elder, said, "Indigenous Missing People gathered at Williams Avenue and Main Street, Saturday.
"Good turn out this afternoon. Lots of powerful Prayers today, and the healing of some of the Women started today. They want to keep this prayer going everyday, especially for the talking circles and prayer circles in Lovelock, Fallon,  Stillwater, Wadsworth, Schurz, Pyramid Lake, Yomba, Reno, and Carson City."
"It was real spiritual and uplifting with good songs and singers, well represented by the American Indian Movement," Buck Sampson told Censored News.
