By FRED ORIDOCONSERVING INDIGENOUS and wild trees is now a viable economic venture in Tanzania. In Tabora, Uyui and Sikonge districts, women are cashing in on species such as ntonga (Strychnos cocculoides) ntalali (Vitex mombassae) mbula (Parinari curatellifolia) and furu (Vitex doniana), which they have planted on their farms alongside traditional crops. Other trees popular with the farmers are: mbuguswa (Fracourtia indica), ng’ong’o (Sclerocarya birrea), zambarau (Syzium guineense), mmbuyu or baobab (Adansonia digitata) and ukwaju or tamarind (Tamarindus indica). The fruit from these trees is processed into jams, juices and wines.So passionate are the farmers about conservation projects in the area that they have taken to policing the vast woodlands against loggers.Mwadawa Luziga spends much of her day in the woodlands and she doesn’t regret it. She says it is now rare to see anyone destroying wild and indigenous trees because women conservation groups have taught the commun...

White Pride vs. Black Pride, Latino Pride, Asian Pride, or Indigenous Pride
2008-02-23 05:46:00
We've come a long way.I don't know about the rest of the world, but racism is still flourishing in the U.S. One common sentiment I hear/read is, "If Black/Latino/Asian/etc people can have pride, why can't White people?"Pride for racial minorities in America means enduring prejudice, living through racially-motivated violence, and overcoming social roadblocks. On the other hand, those touting White Pride generally espouse White supremacy, which is completely different from having pride in your ethnic heritage whether it be Irish, Norwegian, Russian, or British.Get the difference? Pride = Good. Supremacy = Bad.That's not to say only Caucasians are capable of racism; hate and ignorance are colorblind. Unfortunately, tolerance is active, and hate is passive - it's so much easier to hate than to cultivate understanding.Therefore, as a small step toward human harmony, I will do my darndest to not utter racial jokes. They may seem harmless but so did thalidomide.(Don't mistake ...

US Apartheid of Indigenous Peoples documented in UN report
2008-01-18 01:16:00
by Brenda Norrell The systematic racism, forced assimilation and apartheid of Indigenous Peoples in the United States has been documented in the “Consolidated Indigenous Shadow Report,” to be presented by the International Indian Treaty Council to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Dedicated to Floyd Red Crow Westerman, who passed to the Spirit World on December 13, 2007, the report is compiled from the testimony of individuals and groups of Indigenous Peoples and includes data from a wide range of sources. The data reveals “a system of Apartheid and forced assimilation,” where Indigenous Peoples are “warehoused in poverty and neglect” in the United States. The racism permeates Indian life, including life at its foundation, at American Indian sacred places. Indian treaty rights, the abrogation of treaties and discrimination toward non-federally recognized Indian Nations are detailed. Statistics are included for unemployment, ...

Atlantic Free Press - On Monday, January 7, 2008 at 10:00 am PST a coalition of individual property owners, their legal representatives along with Native American and border community leaders will hold a national telephonic media conference and briefing (see call-in number information below) to announce their intent to fight the Department of Homeland Security's threatened seizure of their property along the United States-Mexico border. DHS is attempting to use its powers of eminent domain in order to illegally seize private lands and build the controversial border security wall. "Our lands are not for sale. The U.S. government must stop its illegal attempts to intimidate us. The Department of Homeland Security cannot take away our homes and neighborhoods for border militarization," declared Eloisa Tamez. The Indigenous peoples and border communities telephonic media conference is taking place on the same day that DHS 30-day notices expire, leaving Texas landowners alon...

Indigenous barred from UN Climate Negotiations in Bali
2007-12-12 23:37:00
via Brenda Norrell Indigenous Peoples Protest UNFCCC Indigenous Peoples shut out of Climate Change Negotiations NUSA DUA, Bali, Indonesia- Indigenous peoples representing regions from around the world protested outside the climate negotiations today wearing symbolic gags that read UNFCCC, the acronym of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, symbolizing their systematic exclusion from the UN meeting. Yesterday a delegation of indigenous peoples was forcibly barred from entering the meeting between UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer and civil society representatives, despite the fact that the indigenous delegation was invited to attend. This act is representative of the systematic exclusion of indigenous peoples in the UNFCCC process.

Yes, that means Kadazan, Dusun, Bajau and Murut language radio broadcast on Sabah VFM (the local RTM radio channel, possibly the only six-language radio channel in the world) can now be heard anywhere in the world, as long as you have internet connection. In November 2007, audio streaming via the Internet was activated for Sabah VFM. Timetable (daily, all local time of course): * Kadazan (Tangara dialect): 5:00am - 7:00am & 2:00 pm - 4:30pm. Detailed timetable. * Dusun (Bundu-Liwan dialect): 7:00am - 8:30am & 9:00 pm -11:00pm. Detailed timetable. * Bajau: 2:00am - 4:00am & 4:30pm - 7:00pm. Detailed timetable. * Murut: 4:00am - 5:00am & 7:00pm - 9:00pm. Detailed timetable. The other 2 languages are English and Chinese. Malay has its own dedicated channel. First impressions: very smooth, no stuttering, even from within the very slow SabahNet. But we’ll have to see how it goes as more people use this service. Source Kadus Entertainment
Indigenous Rights
2007-12-04 00:01:00
David Khorram left me a comment on my last post asking me what I meant by indigenous rights. I think that is a question worth asking, but I'm going to have to think about that one for a while before I put my thoughts to print.In the meantime, a local poet sent me a collection of their poems a few months ago for some feedback. They are a series of poems depicting life on Saipan from the point of view of the different people that call this place home.This one struck me as especially powerful:You can remember your father telling you how important this is:[His voice, murmuring mutter, like slip-slop standing in the surf.]Waves tugging the net strings from your fingers, reach up, throw, staggering with weight of wet and twisted rope.This is what you need, he says, and this is who we are, fishermen, and this is who we will be.How little he knows and how little you know,because he does not stand at the shore--he sits at the pala-pala, crushed cans and coconut winemaking a sloppy buzzy cir...
End of the game: Indigenous Peoples' bringing down Apartheid wall
2007-11-14 09:41:00
by Brenda Norrell Mohawks were among 19 Indian Nations at the Indigenous Peoples' Border Summit of the Americas 2007. The four-day summit concluded Saturday with a challenge from Mike Wilson, Tohono O'odham who puts out water for migrants. Lenny Foster, Dine', spoke on Native inmates' ceremonial rights and freedom for Leonard Peltier. Petuuche Gilbert, Acoma Pueblo, shared insights into law and the border, with the summit culminating in a Blackfire resistance concert. Mike Wilson, Tohono O'odham, said it is important to dispel the myth of sovereignty. "We have no sovereignty. We only have the sovereignty that the US Congress allows us that day." Wilson said if the Tohono O'odham Nation was truly sovereign, it would not have an occupying army and unchecked police power on its land, including the Border Patrol, National Guard and Immigration and Customs agents. Wilson said children as young as six-years-old have been imprisoned in the unit known as "the cage&qu...

Indigenous Peoples Fighting Ongoing Colonization and Genocide: Australia
2007-06-27 19:17:00
Indigenous peoples all over the world are fighting valiant battles to protect what's left of their land, peoples, and cultures in the face of ongoing colonialism. While there are some small victories, the vast juggernaut of globalized corporate Capitalism simply steamrolls on. Helping this along is the paternalism of well-meaning liberals. It is from the "white man's burden" that some of the most lasting harm has come. Apartheid in South Africa grew out of the same reserve system we have in Canada. Self-government for the natives in semi-autonomous communities - sounds almost progressive doesn't it? Well, we all know how that ended up.Similarly, misguided but mostly benevolant people, who wanted to improve the lot of young native children through education, created Residential Schools - known as The Stolen Generation) in Australia. This was genocide dressed up as education, with devastating consequences. What happens when nearly an entire people is subject to state-sponsored phys...

Indigenous Mothers Running Scared: Elder
2007-06-26 14:15:00
Australia ...An elder of the Mutitjulu community in central Australia says many Aboriginal mothers are taking their children into the sandhills because of fears the government will take them away. Federal police and members of the defence force are expected to be deployed to the community as early as next week as part of the Federal Government's response to Indigenous child sex abuse.The elder, Vince Forrester, says the changes are unnecessary and are causing widespread fear in central Australia. "When you're bringing armed forces into the communities obviously people's minds are going to start playing tricks on them," he said."You don't bring an army into the community, this is just intimidation of the Aboriginal community in the Northern Territory."
