"Our seeds are more than just food for us. Yes, they are nutrition. But they’re also… spirituality," says Electa Hare-RedCorn, a member of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma and a Yankton descendant. "Each seed has a story and each seed has a prayer."With a background in social work, Hare-RedCorn was brought on to the Pawnee Seed Preservation Project in 2012 as a seed-keeper, to carry the conversation forward with youth and families. The project, she says, has become a movement.

Why Indigenous and minority languages matter 6.9.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Lorenzo Vargas The United Nations has declared 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages in order to raise awareness about the importance of linguistic diversity in relation to sustainable development, culture, knowledge and collective memory. People's ability to communicate in their own language is one of the cornerstones of communication rights. Everyone should be able to use their own language to share knowledge and information, access media content, resolve conflicts, and share their concerns so they can participate in decision-making and in processes of social progress. Linguistic rights are particularly important for ethno-cultural minorities -- without them they may not be able to exercise all of their human rights and to preserve their distinct cultural identities. The need to think about linguistic issues is exacerbated by the growing centrality of the Internet and digital communication platforms in most countries around the world. It is a phenomenon whose dark underbelly is the ...

Mexican ambassador promises 'increased scrutiny' of Canadian mining in Mexico 19.3.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Brent Patterson Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) has appointed Juan Jose Gomez Camacho as the new Mexican ambassador to Canada. Gomez Camacho's first comments, even before he arrives in Ottawa, were reported by The Globe and Mail's Latin America Bureau Chief Stephanie Nolen. "Canadian mining companies operating in Mexico should be on notice that the sector is going to face increased scrutiny on its environmental practices and treatment of Indigenous people, according to the country's new ambassador to Ottawa," writes Nolen. Nolen's article also quotes Gomez Camacho stating, "We really want a strong, profitable mining sector -- and Canadian mining companies are large investors in Mexico -- but we expect them to operate in this country with exactly the same standards as they do in Canada." That sounds less than promising given the "standards" for industrial projects in Canada do not respect the Indigenous right to free, prior and informed consent -- witness the Trans Mountain pipeline ...

Indigenous land defenders and anti-fascist activists challenge United We Roll convoy 27.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Political Action Indigenous Solidarity Ottawa and Ottawa Against Fascism organized a highly successful "Stand Up for Land Defenders!" direct action to challenge the "United We Roll" truck convoy when it arrived in Ottawa on February 19. The convoy was pro-tar sands (expressing support for the building of pipelines), anti-Bill C-48 (the Oil Tanker Moratorium that restricts oil tankers on the north coast of British Columbia), anti-Bill C-69 (an act primarily on the approval process for pipelines), and anti-carbon tax (that would tax carbon pollution at C$20 a tonne). The convoy also brought messages from Yellow Vests Canada (not to be confused with the more progressive gilets jaunes in France), opposing "illegal" immigration (targeting the non-binding United Nations Global Migration Pact), and the UN more generally, including its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that reflects the right to water and sanitation. Messages of hate A truck that arrived with the convoy had a huge sign on it that read "no" ...
