DC Comics: A MIGHTY GIRL CREE

DC Comics' new teenage superhero was inspired by Native American education activist Shannen Koostachin (Attawapiskat First Nation).

The new DC Comics animated character called Equinox, a ficticious 16-year-old girl from the Cree Indian community of Moose Factory, Ontario, Canada, will appear in a five-issue story in the Justice League Canada comic book.

Equinox possesses special powers connected to the Earth that change with the seasons.

Shannen KoostachinAt the age of 14, Shannen was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize in 2009 for her educational activism. Tragically, Shannen was killed in a car accident in 2010.

However, her dream lives on in Shannen’s Dream, a youth-driven movement advocating educational funding for safe and culturally-based programs for First Nations children across Canada, and in the new Attawapiskat tribal school that will bear her name.... READ MORE.

Government to allow Wind Energy Industry to Kill Eagles

ERNIE
by Ernie C. Salgado, Jr., Soboba t
ribal elder, January 17, 2014

American Bald and Golden Eagles have been an American national icon pride for over 200 years, and they are sacred birds for the Native American people. The feathers of the Eagle are central to many American Indian religious and spiritual customs, especially among American Indians in the United States and First Nations in Canada....

Now the Obama administration will allow some wind energy companies to kill or injure Bald and Golden Eagles for up to 30 years without penalty in an effort to spur the development and investment in green energy while balancing its environmental consequences.... READ EDITORIAL

EDITORIAL: Jamul Casino, local organized opposition
EN ESPANOL

RE: U-T San Diego article by Karen Pearlman, Feb. 7, 2014: JAMUL CASINO PROPOSAL DRAWS STRONG OPPOSITION; SUITS FILED

Editorial by Gary G. Ballard, Feb. 8, 2014

Few quotations in the news move me to publicly comment these days about American Indian affairs, but this is such a profound statement:

"Jamul will never be the same (if the Jamul casino is built). It would bring other big-city problems, more noise, more crime, more traffic, more light pollution."

DIANNE JACOB
Dianne Jacob, San Diego County Supervisor

I am not sure if San Diego County Supervisor Jacob conveyed these words in an official capacity or as a local citizen, yet they bear discussion from an historical perspective.

First, I will say to Ms. Jacob and her neighbors — yes, that's called "progress" and American Indians certainly know a thing or two about "progress." ... READ EDITORIAL.

REMEMBERING WOUNDED KNEE 123 Years later...

WOUNDED KNEE MASSACRE
December 29, 1890

ERNIE
by Ernie C. Salgado, Jr., Soboba Tribal Member

December 29, 2013 marks the 123rd anniversary of the Wounded Knee Massacre and time should not diminish its memory as it was only one of numerous acts of genocide committed against our people. As we prepare to celebrate Christmas and the New Year let us take a moment to remember the Wounded Knee Massacre that occurred on December 29, 1890.

On that horrible day it is estimated that 275 Lakota Sioux men, women and children as well as 25 U.S. soldiers died.

MASSING OF THE COLORS, BALBOA PARK, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA

The mass grave site at the Wounded Knee Massacre site today (above) and in 1890 (below), Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota.

Why? Fear! Fear of the "Ghost Dance" was the excuse as if one was needed: Because the powers that be at that period in time feared the "Ghost Dance" that was practiced by the Indian people. After all what more could the "Indians" want?

THANKSGIVING MEMORIES ON THE SOBOBA RESERVATION, 1955

Rez Ball - Thanksgiving Day 1955

by Ernie C. Salgado

NOVEMBER 28, 2013 -- Rez Ball 2pm, Thanksgiving Day 1955 on the Soboba Indian reservation at what is today referred to the number one ball field. It seems like it was yesterday but in reality it was a life time ago. The baseball field was not like it is today with beautiful manicured grass, state of the art lights, shade trees, covered bleachers, paved parking lots and nice drinking fountains. No, it was a mix of hard sand, dirt and small rocks and dusty. We drank from a community water hose if there was water and if not from a shared water cooler... READ MORE.

Obesity Is Found to Gain Its Hold in Earliest Years

by Gina Kolatajan, Jan. 29, 2014

For many obese adults, the die was cast by the time they were 5 years old. A major new study of more than 7,000 children has found that a third of children who were overweight in kindergarten were obese by eighth grade. And almost every child who was very obese remained that way....

“The main message is that obesity is established very early in life, and that it basically tracks through adolescence to adulthood,” said Ruth Loos, a professor of preventive medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, who was not involved in the study... READ STORY.

LETTERS TO THE INDIAN COMMUNITY

Dear Community,

I am writing to see if you or your organization would be interested in sponsoring an event for our Warner Springs High School.

The objective of the fundraising event is: To help the Senior graduating class raise money for their upcoming endeavor’s.

Our Senior class is fundraising for prom (at this time due to lack of funds there may be no Prom) and our graduating class trip to Walt Disney World.

Being that we are a back country school our resources are limited in fundraising. We have done a Halloween carnival, carwashes every Friday, dances, and bake sales.

Though our small community has been as generous as they can we are still in need of financial help. We have decided to expand our horizons by coming into town and putting on a final fundraising event in hopes of reaching our goal. Our 1st Annual Vibrant Color Fun Run!... MORE

Dear Tribal Community,

A few years past the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall was created to honor the 58,282 brave American warriors that were killed in action or missing during the Vietnam War.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is currently expanding the honoring of these heroes by building The Education Center next to “The Wall."

Two local American Indian boys — Joe Pink (Pala), and Willie Lyons (Morongo) — are already included in this memorial.
