DENNIS BANKSDENNIS BANKS, 80
1937-2017
American Indian Icon
Activist, Teacher, Author

by Ernie C. Salgado, Jr., Editor

Mr. Dennis Banks, Co-Founder of (AIM) the American Indian Movement passed away on October 29, 2017. However, his legacy will live forever as a true American Indian “Warrior” of the people.

In our short lives we seldom have the opportunity to meet or know of very few “Distinguished People” that truly grace us with their presence. I am proud to say Dennis Banks was my friend and one of the “Great Men” of our time.

Anyone that ever had the honor of meeting him knew him as an honest, humble and caring person. When he spoke to anyone it was with respect regardless of status, they be a United States Senator or a Reservation Indian, it didn’t matter.

AMERICAN INDIAN ACTIVISTS

AIM FLAGDennis Banks co-founded the American Indian Movement (AIM) in 1968. Russell Means (left) joined the organization shortly thereafter. The two iconic Native American Indian leaders were key activists and spokespersons for the historic Wounded Knee incident (1973), and the Native American Occupation of Alcatraz Island (1969-1971).

Dennis Banks put his life on the line to fight racial discrimination, the federal Government and Tribal corruption and the injustice against our people.

He never expressed any regret for the personal sacrifices he endured that included long separations from his family, Government persecution and his incarceration.

He knew the cruelty of the U.S. Government against the American Indian people first hand as he was taken from his family at the age of 7 and placed in an “Indian Boarding School.”

At the age of 17 Dennis escaped the boarding school a final time and joined the Air Force. He served our Country in the U.S. Air Force and received an honorable discharge after four years of service most of which was in Japan.

Although he didn’t have a formal college education his intelligent was not diminished as he changed to course of history of the American Indian people.

Again, Dennis was a “Great Man” having dedicated his life to the protection and advancement of our people. He will be missed, but he left us the road map to freedom.

May God bless Dennis Banks and give him eternal life.

SCAIR “Gathering of Native Americans” GONA

ERNIE
Special to the SOBOBA INDIAN REPORTER WEBSITE.

The Southern California American Indian Resource Center, Inc. (SCAIR) held its annual Gathering Of Native Americans (GONA) on June 28, 2017 at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve. The activity was sponsored in part by the California Department of Education and U.S. Department of Labor.

GONA Gathering of Native Americans
GONA participants celebrated with the traditional Round Dance.

The primary goal of the Family GONA is to stem the cycle of poverty within the San Diego County Native American Indian community. In an effort to achieve this goal as a component of its employment training curriculum SCAIR implements two Family GONA’s annually.

TRIBAL ENTERTAINMENT
San Diego SCTCA Tribal TANF site manager, Paul Miranda (Pala Band of Mission Indians) played the guitar and sang. Steve Garcia (Gabrielino-Tongva) danced the Eagle Dance.

The SCAIR Family GONAs include the extended community family of tribal elders, adults, parents and youth. The GONA curriculum is designed to develop positive self-esteem, goal setting, traditional tribal values and tribal cultural awareness for the Native American Tribal community in east San Diego County...

LETTERS TO THE INDIAN COMMUNITY

YES, WE ARE STILL HERE

by Annette Guachino, Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel
special to the Soboba Indian Reporter, Sept. 2017

While I was at La Jolla Shores, an elderly foreign woman, maybe Russian approached me. Heavy accent, she asked if we were real Indians and why we were singing and dancing there on the beach. She was genuinely interested, no sarcasm.

She said she was in the restroom and couldn't wait to go out to see it for herself.

She was brought to tears listening to the bird songs and watching the young women dance. She kept saying it was beautiful just beautiful.

She asked if we lived on Indian reservations. I told her yes a lot (many) of us do and I told her she was on Kumeyaay land now.

She was so excited and the look in her eyes as she stood there and watched in disbelief that "real Indians" were before her was something I'd never witnessed.

I left her with tears in her eyes and a smile like a child looking at the gates of Disneyland.

She'd thought we were extinct.

American Indians Second Class Citizens by Choice

by Ernie C. Salgado, Jr., Soboba Indian Reservation

I told myself not to write this article but sometimes I just can’t help myself. I guess I’m like the bug in the movie “Bugs Life” when he was told don’t look at the lights and as he looked at the light he said “I can’t help it.” So since I can’t help myself I am going to expose this can of worms.

EDITOR IN CHIEF

What is pathetic is that non-American citizens seem to get more protections from the Constitution of the United States of America than the American Indian tribal people. In fact just the other day the Federal Court judge in Hawaii ruled that the Trump travel ban was not legal because it violated the Civil Rights of the non-citizens. And if that’s not bad enough the Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. forces in combat fighting the Islamic extremist must read them their Miranda Rights.

Sure the United States Congress passed the Indian Civil Rights Act in 1968 (H.R. 2516) stating “The Indian Civil Rights Act of 1968 (ICRA) applies to the Indian tribes of the United States and makes many, but not all, of the guarantees of the Bill of Rights applicable within the tribes. The legislation also addressed the crises of domestic violence that pledge the American Indian community.

The Act appears today in Title 25, sections 1301 to 1303 of the United States Code. The “and makes many, but not all,” are troublesome and were not defied The US Supreme Court had made clear that tribal internal affairs concerning tribal members' individual rights were not covered by the Fifth Amendment to the US constitution. However, the tribes were ultimately subjected to the power of Congress and the Constitution... READ MORE.
