What Matters? Tax Fight is about Seven Competing Values Native News Online

Guest Commentary

Published November 20, 2017

Why Indian Country Should Have a Voice in This Debate

There is no better way for any legislature be it a tribal council, a state assembly, or a Congress to telegraph whats most important to a society than through tax policy. How a government collects revenue says what constituent groups are seen to matter. And, conversely, what groups and issues are insignificant. And, that of course, is Indian Country.

As Adrian Sinclair wrote in Cronkite News: Indian Country once again does not have a seat at the table. Tribes arent treated the same as state and local governments across the board on a whole series of issues, John Dossett, general counsel for the National Congress of American Indians, said after the hearing. Tribes are either ignored or theyre an afterthought. He said there are many cases where state governments have more power than tribal governments, like the federal Adoption Tax Credit, which gives a credit to parents who adopt a child with special needs. But the credit only applies when a state court, not a tribal court, rules that a child has special needs.

So Indian Country is a perfect illustration for my larger point: A countrys tax policy shows what it values. The key to this idea is simple when a nation wants more of something, then taxes it less. And, other hand, if a nation wants less of something? Tax it more.

All interest on debt was deductible when the first income tax was created in 1894. Why? Because Americans did not like to borrow. It was almost immoral. As a writer for Harpers Weekly warned a man in debt must smile on those he hates, he must extend his hand where he would strike, he must speak pleasantly with a curse in his throat He wears dependence like a yoke.

Public Hearing on Redistricting Conceptual Plans Bears Concerns on Racial Division in San Juan County, Utah Native News Online

Published November 20, 2017

ST. MICHAELS, ARIZONA NAVAJO NATION  Since 2011, the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission (Commission) has been working to secure the voting rights of Navajo Citizens in state and federal elections, in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. There are strong concerns with the state of Navajo voting rights in San Juan County Utah (County).  In the redistricting case of Navajo Nation vs. San Juan County, Judge Robert J. Shelby made the decision that the County Commission and School Board election districts are unconstitutional. The County was given the opportunity to draw new, lawful redistricting plans, according to the United States Constitution and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, but the County chose to create maps that are based on racial quotas in both the School Board and County Commission plans.

With numerous attempts to resolve the unconstitutional redistricting plans created by the County, Judge Shelby appointed, Special Master Dr. Bernard Grofman, PhD, to develop constitutional redistricting maps for County Commission and school board. Dr. Grofman designed three conceptual County Commission maps and two conceptual School Board maps.

On November 16, 2017, Judge Shelby and Dr. Grofman conducted public hearings at Monticello, and Bluff, UT. The main goal for the public hearings was to gain insight from the public on the conceptual maps for redrawing County Commission and School Board districts. The public was invited to provide comments on the conceptual maps.

During the public hearing there was high opposition against Dr. Grofmans conceptual maps that followed the guidelines outlined in the Voting Rights Act and the U.S. constitution. During the public comment section remarks were made that questioned the integrity of Navajo citizens living in the County such as, but not limited to, Navajos dont know how to pay property taxes. Navajo voters are a protected class according the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The 1965 voting rights act was established to protect and enhance minority voting rights. This provides minority votes to be enhanced and not retrogress the voting power for minorities by cracking the voting strength, packing into single district said Leonard Gorman, Executive Director of the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission. Gorman further states We need to secure Native American voting strength in the County that aligns with th...

Accomplices Not Allies: Abolishing the Ally Industrial Complex Indigenous Action Media Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Accomplices Not Allies: Abolishing the Ally Industrial Complex Indigenous Action Media: The ally industrial complex has been established by activists whose careers depend on the issues they work to address. These nonprofit capitalists advance their careers off the struggles they ostensibly support. They often work in the guise of grassroots or community-based and are not necessarily tied to any organization.
They build organizational or individual capacity and power, establishing themselves comfortably among the top ranks in their hierarchy of oppression as they strive to become the ally champions of the most oppressed. While the exploitation of solidarity and support is nothing new, the commodification and exploitation of allyship is a growing trend in the activism industry.

Ramzy Baroud // Israeli hands in the American fear industry - Al Arabiya English Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Israeli hands in the American fear industry - Al Arabiya English: Indeed, Israeli footprints are becoming more apparent in the US security apparatus. The harm in this goes beyond politics to infringing upon the rights of ordinary Americans.

US Senate Bill S.720 should have been a wake-up call. The Bill, drafted by the Israel lobby group, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), as part of its "2017 Lobbying Agenda" is set to punish any individual or company that boycotts Israel for its violation of Palestinian human rights.

Still, protests are largely muted. The mainstream US media is yet to take US lawmakers to task, as hundreds of those elected representatives have already endorsed the deplorable initiative.

The infiltration of the US government is not new. It is only becoming more emboldened due to the absence of enough critical voices that have the ability to create a semblance of balance or a serious debate on the issue.

For years, ordinary US citizens have been far-removed from the entire discussion on Israel and Palestine. The subject felt alien, marred by Hollywood propaganda, religious misconceptions and the lack of any understanding of history.

But in recent years, Israel has become an integral part of American life, even if most people do not spot the Israeli influence.

"In the aftermath of 9/11, Israel seized on its decades-long experience as an occupying force to brand itself as a world leader in counter-terrorism," reported Alice Speri in the Intercept.

Sioux Chef Sean Sherman  Illuminates Chicago with His Book, The Sioux Chefs Indigenous Revolution Native News Online

Sioux Chef Sean Sherman in Chicago

November is Native American Heritage Month

Published November 19, 2017

CHICAGO On Monday, November 14th, Sean Sherman, the Sioux Chef, enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe gave a presentation on his inspirational new book, The Sioux Chefs Indigenous Revolution. The event was held at the University of Illinois at Chicago for Native American Heritage Month. Attendees had the opportunity to learn about his culinary philosophy underscored by the challenges experienced growing up on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

His discussion began with a brief history of indigenous U.S. relations with an ehistory.org interactive map entitled, The Invasion of America: How the U.S. Took over an 1/8th of the World. He described the dramatic changes in lifestyle that occurred due to devastating land loss during the treaty making era, the creation of federal Indian policies and the impact government sponsored boarding schools had on their attempts to assimilate native children into the mainstream Eurocentric society.

The book is a response to reclaiming food sovereignty by serving as a tool to be used on embracing the past and indigenizing the present. He explains how decolonizing ingredients found in everyday recipes transforms not only the nutritional content of a meal but connects you to the land that it was sourced from. Food and federal Indian policy have been inextricably woven together and an example of that is fry bread, originated nearly 150 years ago when the U.S. government forced our ancestors from the homelands they farmed, foraged, and hunted and the waters they fished. Displaced and moved to reservations, they lost control of their food and were made to rely on government-issued commodities-canned meat, white flour, sugar, and lard all lacking nutritive value. Controlling food is a means of controlling power.

Estamos lejos en distancia, pero tan cerca en nuestros ideales y prcticas libertarias. Junto con ustedes, nosotras decimos que en esta guerra contra la humanidad, nosotras las mujeres de los pueblos originarios estamos alzando nuestra voz y nos organizamos y caminamos por la liberacin de nuestros pueblos y de nosotras las mujeres que somos la mitad de la comunidad humana.

Reconocemos, valoramos su lucha porque toda lucha de cualquier mujer en cualquier parte del mundo en cualquier tiempo de la historia que lucha, se rebela y propone construir nuevos caminos de vida ante este monstruo patriarcal capitalista que nos oprime, es una lucha digna que debe hermanarnos. Creemos firmemente recuperar la importancia de pararnos nosotras las mujeres desde nuestra comunidad, no para pelearnos, sino para organizarnos con nuestros hermanos y nuestros pueblos.

Este sistema capitalista patriarcal de muerte nos coloca a las mujeres en el peor lugar, el ms incmodo, el ms olvidado y ms reprimido y no es que solo nos hace dao a nosotras sino que tambin a nuestros hermanos; pero si la comunidad est mal, mas peor nos va a nosotras las mujeres.

Libya opens investigation into migrant 'slave auctions' Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Libya opens investigation into migrant 'slave auctions': "Priorities of the investigation are not only to convict those responsible for these inhumane acts, but also to identify the location of those who have been sold in order to bring them to safety and return them to their countries of origin," he added.

Libya has also pledged to return those sold as slaves to their countries of origin.

Earlier on Friday, the African Union urged Libya to investigate the "slave markets" operating in the conflict-torn nation.

Guinean President Alpha Conde, who is also Chairman of the AU, demanded an enquiry and prosecutions relating to what he termed a "despicable trade... from another era".

Senegal's government also expressed its disgust at the abuses, saying on Facebook that the markets constituted a "blight on the conscience of humanity".

The Paris Agreement Does Not Recognize Indigenous Rights Native News Online

Published November 19, 2017

BONN, GERMANY   On Friday, November 17, 2017, The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 23rd Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 23) has come to an end. And while progress has been made on the UNFCCC traditional knowledge Platform for engagement of local communities and Indigenous Peoples, Indigenous Peoples rights are not fully recognized in the final platform document of COP 23. The burden of implementation falls on local communities and indigenous peoples.

Tom BK Goldtooth from the final day of the Climate Talks in Bonn Germany. The primary work of the Indigenous Caucus within the UN climate conference focused on a platform that was established in Paris in 2015, in the Paris Agreement. This platform is through decision 1/CP.21 paragraph 135, with a mandate to facilitate the integration of indigenous and local knowledge systems as well as the engagement of Indigenous peoples and local communities related to climate change action, programs and policies. The challenge for our Indigenous Caucus is that the countries that are parties to this UN climate conference are very cautious on the process and rules for inclusion of Indigenous peoples in a decision-making role in the operationalizing of the platform. We need to be clear that on the final day of this two week 23rd Session of the Conference the Parties (COP 23), of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has not recognized our rights. The final document from the parties to this conference says they only will consider their respective obligations on the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities.

Alberto Saldamando, Attorney and Expert on Human Rights and Rights of Indigenous Peoples, IEN  We are not waving the victory flags yet, the local communities and Indigenous peoples platform does not recognize the rights of Indigenous peoples in the human rights sense of the term recognize. It only recalls the UN Declaration on the rights of Indigenous peoples in its preamble. Given the resistance of States during these negotiations to fully recognize the rights of Indigenous peoples, the task for a greater recognition of our rights as peoples will be difficult Saldamando further says, The platform for traditional knowledge is merely that. It should allow Indigenous knowledge holders to advise and inform the U...

Here We Go Again: The Congressional Attack on Health Care, Higher Education Native News Online

Guest Commentary

Published November 19, 2017

Here we go again. The Congress is hell bent on wrecking the Affordable Care Act.

This time the mechanism is the so-called tax reform bill that will be voted in the U.S. Senate. The logic is rich (and, yes, rich is absolutely the right word and sentiment) because this tax cut will wreck the individual health insurance market so that the rich will pay less in taxes. But the problem gets at the core of insurance itself. How do you make sure there is a large enough pool to cover high cost patients? The Affordable Care Act did this by requiring everyone to buy health insurance or pay a penalty. Without that provision people who are healthy are free to skip out. But sick people always want coverage. And that creates an imbalance that does not work.

Senate Republicans added the provision because it saves money, some $338 billion according to the Congressional Budget Office. It estimates 13 million people will drop health insurance.

Were optimistic that inserting the individual mandate repeal would be helpful, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday.

The Senate bill is now being shaped into its final form. Wait. Thats funny. Thats what they say. But both the Senate and the House will change these tax bills all the way up until the final vote (unless its a sure thing, anyway). One of the reasons the bill will evolve is whats called the Byrd Rule. This Senate is using the reconciliation process, like the Affordable Care Act repeal bills, so only 50 votes are required to pass. But that means the bill has limit of $1.5 trillion in new debt over 10 years and cannot add more after that. None of the bills, so far, accomplish that.

So the health care fight is back. And the Senate majority is confident this time they have the votes to pass the legislation.

There are other provisions in Senate tax bill that will impact American Indians and Alaska Natives.

One of the key ideas is to increase the size of the standard deduction so that fewer taxpayers will have to itemize. But to pay for that the simplicity the Senate bill is getting rid of some popular deductions, including the ability to deduct state and local taxes from your federal tax return. The bill also gets rid of deductions for dependents. The math works out so that families with fewer than three children will pay about the same. But if yo...

Data Shows Huge Reduction in Din Speakers Native News Online

Navajo Times | Ravonelle Yazzie
A poster emphasizing the Din language is on display at the Din Language Teachers Association Fall Conference at San Juan College in Farmington on Oct. 26.

Published November 19, 2017

WINDOW ROCK  Language loss and revitalization arent new topics in Indian Country. Over the last couple of decades, the Navajo Nation has watched as other languages, like that of the Eyak, an Alaskan tribe, or the Lake Miwok, a tribe in California, became extinct or dormant.

While the Navajo language has 7,600 Navajo-only speakers and over 171,000 fluent speakers worldwide, according to Ethonologue: Languages of the World, its considered at risk.

Data shows huge reductions in native Navajo speakers, said AnCita Benally, the program manager for the Office of Standards, Curriculum and Assessment Development.

The office is under the Department of Din Education and works to develop Navajo language and cultural competency among Navajo students.

Based on the rate of decline, how it has been accelerating, the guess is maybe by 2020, which is in three years, when they do the Census, (Navajo language speakers) will be down to 30 percent, Benally said.

This estimate is based on Census data that was studied by Florian Johnson, a cultural specialist at Rock Point Community School.

In 1980, 93 percent of Navajos spoke the language. Ten years later, in 1990 it had declined to 84 percent. Then in 2000 the percentage of Navajo speakers decreased to 76 percent.

Another decade later, in 2010, the Navajo language showed its most stark decline to date, to 51 percent.

In the span of just 10 years the percentage of Navajo language speakers dropped 25 percent, according to Census data.

In 2030 we might be down to 10 percent or so, Benally said. Its very alarming.

According to research by Wendy Greyeyes, an assistant professor at the University of New Mexico, the decline in Navajo speakers is more substantial for those 39 and under meaning they are less likely to speak Navajo.

For those 40 and over the decline is considered slight.

The younger the generations are, the less likely they are to speak Navajo, Benally said. By the time you get down to kindergarten there are none.

How a Facebook lie about Thunder Bay woman killed by trailer hitch spread - CBC News | Indigenous: Earlier this month, the Crown prosecutor announced he was upgrading the charge against Brayden Bushby, 18, to second-degree murder in connection with the trailer hitch incident. Bushby, who turned himself into police shortly after the January incident, was initially charged with aggravated assault.

Nicholaichuk said she decided to act after the Crown's announcement. She noticed a Facebook comment from someone debunking a long-shared lie that Kentner had been previously involved in an assault on a 15-year-old boy that left him with a caved-in eye-socket. Nicholaichuk said she wanted to get to the "bottom of this" and began sifting through posts, primarily from the Real Concerned Citizens of Thunder Bay Facebook group.

Top U.S. Envoy Slams Hamas For Holding Mentally Ill Ethiopian Jew Hostage in Gaza Tablet Magazine: For a time, Mengistus predicament was kept under gag order, in the hopes that not publicizing and politicizing his predicament would make it easier for Hamasthe U.S. and E.U.-designated terrorist group that controls Gazato release him. But over three years later, Hamas has still refused to return Mengistu to Israel, and mediation through the Red Cross has repeatedly failed.

In the face of this cruel abuse of an unwell mans human rights, Greenblatt invited Mengistus family to the White House to raise awareness for his cause and ratchet up the international pressure on Hamas. Though doubtless a powerful gesture, it seems unlikely to produce results, given that Hamas has previously held onto Israel hostages for years while using their likenesses in sadistic propaganda videos.

Legislation Introduced to Address Health Disparities for Native Americans Living Off the Reservations Native News Online

Vice Chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs Tom Udall D New Mexico

Published November 18, 2017

WASHINGTON  On Thursday, U.S. Senator Tom Udall and Congressman introduced bicameral legislation to improve Medicaid for Native patients who receive services at Urban Indian Health Programs. The Urban Indian Health Parity Act is also cosponsored by U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich.
 
The Indian Health Service (IHS) is the primary federal agency responsible for providing health care to American Indian and Alaska Natives through federally operated facilities that provide services directly on reservation lands, Tribally run facilities, and urban Indian nonprofit run facilities. All three types of facilities are available in New Mexico.
 
Federally and Tribally operated IHS facilities are reimbursed at a higher rate for Medicaid patients than their urban Indian health counterparts. This bill would balance the scales by providing 100 percent parity in reimbursement rates for all three types of facilities, allowing urban facilities to expand care and services for their Native American patients.
 
The federal government has a treaty responsibility to ensure every Native American has access to quality, affordable health care whether they live in an urban community like Albuquerque or Farmington or on a reservation, Udall said. This legislation is a common-sense measure to ensure parity between IHS facilities so Native Americans on and off the reservation have access to the care they need.
