Slaughter of the Osage, Betrayal of the Sioux 17.4.2017 Mother Jones
One cold November day last year, Chris Turley, a 28-year-old member of the Osage Nation, set out from the tribe's northeast Oklahoma reservation upon a quest. He had a wool hat pulled down over his crisply cut black hair and wore military fatigues, just as he had done when he served in Afghanistan as a Scout in the US Army. He carried a rucksack filled with MREs—Meals, Ready-to-Eat—and bottled water, a tent, and a sleeping bag. Tucked away was also an emergency medical kit. Departing on foot, he headed north through the tall prairie grass. He went past scattering herds of cattle and grinding oil pumps. Thirty miles later, around midnight, he stopped near the Kansas border and made camp in the darkness. He slept in his tent, curled in the cold. In the abruptness of dawn he woke, poured water into a container with premade eggs and quickly ate, and then set out again. The rucksack weighed 80 pounds and his right leg especially burned. In Afghanistan, shrapnel from a rocket-propelled grenade had shivved ...

Indigenous and Environmental Groups Sue to Block Trump's Keystone XL Permit 31.3.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Environmental and Indigenous groups are digging in for a long fight against Trump, who is working to expand oil infrastructure and undo federal initiatives to mitigate climate disruption. Already, the administration faces two lawsuits over reversing Obama-era climate rules and issuing a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. Activists display a mock Keystone XL pipeline at a protest in Washington, DC, November 6, 2011. (Photo: Tarsandsaction ) Environmental and Indigenous groups filed two lawsuits yesterday challenging the Trump administration's recent decision to issue a cross-border permit for the Keystone XL pipeline that would bisect the nation and carry carbon-heavy crude oil from the tar sands of Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Last week, President Trump issued a ceremonial "presidential permit" to TransCanada, the company behind the pipeline, and instructed the State Department to reverse a 2015 decision by the Obama administration to deny a federal permit needed for construction.

Op-ed: I'm banking on Zinke keeping our Bears Ears promises to Indians 19.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
I fear we are headed down an old and familiar path at Bears Ears. We promise Indian people that we will honor treaties, that we will recognize their rights to lands they have called home for millennia. We, the United States of America, make promises. Then, we break them. The Bears Ears National Monument proclamation isn’t a treaty, but the president’s words have the weight of law, granting new protections for a swath of public lands “profoundly sacred to many Native American tribes.” And now Ut...

How Women of Color Have Broadened and Redefined Reproductive Rights 2.3.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Women of color in the US negotiate their reproductive lives in a system that combines various interlocking forms of oppression. The groups in Undivided Rights created their own definitions of reproductive rights -- definitions that are grounded in the experiences of their different communities and that link oppressions. It is because of these intersections that women of color advance a definition of reproductive rights beyond abortion.   A sonogram of Amanda Ralph's baby is viewed during a visit from Healthy Start, a nationwide, federally funded, nonprofit group now responsible for the most vulnerable pregnant women, at the Ralph home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on October 5, 2011. Nationally, Black babies are twice as likely as white infants to die before age 1, and in Pittsburgh, where the racial disparity is even sharper, health officials face many hurdles.
