Google Honors Oneida Comedian Charlie Hill

Google honors Oneida Comedian Charlie Hill today, July 6, on its homepage, on what would have been Charlie's 71st birthday. We share the good words of Charlie's daughter, Nasbah Hill, and Charlie's words from the AIM West Reunion in San Francisco.

Celebrating Charlie

Charlie's daughter Nasbah Hill said, "In honor of my father’s birthday today, my siblings, mom and I collaborated with Google to create a Google Doodle to celebrate his 71st birthday. Thank you to the Google team for recognizing that our dad, Charlie Hill is a historical figure and wanting to honor his legacy. Love you and miss you dad!"

Nasbah said, "A Little about the artwork. Every detail in the Google Doodle artwork is symbolic. The sun and the colors of background represent the sunsets at the beach. Our dad loved watching sunsets at Venice beach with us. He also enjoyed the serenity that walking through the woods provided. He loved reading and one of his favorite places to spend time were in bookstores."

Three Indigenous Water Protectors have had their criminal cases dismissed in a major legal victory for Indigenous sovereignty and treaty-reserved rights.

Anishinaabe Water Protectors Nancy Beaulieu, Justin Keezer, and Todd Thompson were charged with criminal trespass for their presence at the Fire Light Camp, an eight-day ceremonial camp held at the Mississippi River in June 2021. The Fire Light Camp was located on territory ceded to the United States by treaty, where Enbridge Energy Corporation was building its Line 3 fossil fuel pipeline to cross the river near its headwaters.

'U.S. Supreme Court ignores that our world is on fire' by Lisa DeVille

On June 30, 2022 the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) handed down their decision in West Virginia, at al. v EPA ruling to limit the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gasses and other harmful pollutants.  The Court should never have taken this case as it was challenging a clean air regulation that was not being used and so there was no need for enforcement…or a SCOTUS ruling!  A majority of global citizens recognize what this SCOTUS does not seem to: climate change is real and we need fewer barriers to government actions that would curtail emissions directly contributing to man-made climate change.
