The Red Nation Podcast – Not in Our Honor – Press Conference

Mon, 02/19/2024 - 09:39

Episode 345 of The Red Nation Podcast


On February 10, 2024 at Nuwu Art Gallery on unceded Paiute territory (Las Vegas, NV), a group of Indigenous women organized a call to action to change the Kansas City NFL team’s name. This press conference occurred the night before the Super Bowl and was moderated by Fawn Douglas from Nuwu Art Gallery. The main speakers–Amanda Blackhorse (nomorenativemascots.org), Gaylene Crouser from the Kansas City Indian Center, and Rhonda LeValdo (notinourhonor.com)–are all longtime activists of the movement to change racist teams names across the US, resulting in many victories.

In July 2020, the Washington NFL team changed their name from the anti-Indigenous R-word slur to the Washington Football Team, and then the Washington Commanders in 2022. The success of this change can be attributed to the women on this panel and their movements. It was expected that the Kansas City team would follow suit, but it has yet to change its racist team name.

On February 7, 2024, Amanda Blackhorse posted this call to action:

The Kansas City “Chiefs” once again make it to the Super Bowl with their mockery of a name, logo, and complete misappropriation and disrespect for real and actual Native people, who have protested their franchise for years. Despite psychological research stating Native mascots and stereotypes of Native people (Friberg, Markus, Oyserman, & Stone 2008) harm native youth, the KC team continues to stonewall Native people and stand on the wrong side of history.

We know native cultural appropriation is a billion-dollar industry and the franchise has been living well off of the backs of Native people. With their growing popularity and the “swifting” of the NFL, we want to remind the public that not all franchises last forever. The Washington team and the Cleveland team had their success and downfall. What’s been consistent is Native people standing against the theft of their identities and culture. We call on all Indigenous people, tribes, tribal leaders, Native organizations, Native artists, singers, drummers, and allies to stand with us on February 11, 2024 outside Super Bowl LVIII to protest the KC franchise. We ask these organizations and tribes make public statements standing in solidarity with Native organizers, Not in Our Honor, Kansas City Indian Center, Nuwu Art, and AZ rally. Protest will be held at Allegiant Stadium.

Change the name of the Kansas City football team!

Sun, 02/11/2024 - 22:00

Outside of Allegiant Stadium on unceded Paiute land, a coalition of Native-led organizations held a protest hours ahead of Super Bowl 58. The organizers also held a press conference the night before.

Over a dozen Native relatives chanted “Stop the Chop. Change the Name” on the intersection of Hacienda Ave and Polaris Ave in front of thousands of people entering the stadium. We held signs that read “your chop is synchronized racism” “shake it off. Stop the chop” “Kansas City playing Indian since 1963” and “Native-themed mascots cause harm to all children”.

Amanda Blackhorse, a longtime Diné organizer who brought the coalition of Native-led organizations together for this action, linked the connection of the erasure of Native people in the US through racist imagery, to the genocide happening in Gaza. Amanda Blackhorse stated, “This country doesn’t care about Indigenous people. Because if they did, they wouldn’t be committing genocide against Indigenous people in Palestine”

We thank Amanda Blackhorse for inviting The Red Nation to this action and organizing it. Follow the coalition of organizations for updates on changing racist Native imagery in sports: AZ to Rally Against Native Mascots (@aztorally), No More Native Mascots (nomorrnativemascots.org), Kansas City Indian Center (kcindiancenter.org), and Not In Our Honor (notinourhonor.com)

Special gratitude to Nuwu Art + Community Center(@nuwuare) for hosting the space.

The Red Nation Podcast – Leonard Peltier Mixtape Vol. 2

Tue, 02/06/2024 - 06:11

Episode 343 of The Red Nation Podcast

February 6th is International Day of Solidarity with Leonard Peltier and All Political Prisoners. Today marks the 49th year of Leonard Peltier’s wrongful imprisonment. Free Palestine! Free Leonard Peltier!

01. [00:00] TRN-KREZ Morning Show

Feb 6 , 2024 – Good morning, Turtle Island

02. [01:15] 49

May 3, 2023 – President Biden: Free Leonard Peltier – Amnesty International USA

Leonard Peltier, a Native American activist, has been imprisoned for nearly 50 years in the USA for a crime he maintains he did not commit. There are serious and ongoing concerns about the fairness of his trial and conviction. Tribal Nations, Nobel Peace Laureates, former FBI agents, numerous others, and even the former U.S. Attorney, James Reynolds, whose office handled the prosecution, have called for Leonard Peltier’s release. Watch to learn more.

03. [04:14] Whistleblower

Jan 18, 2023 – Ex-FBI Agent breaks the silence on Leonard Peltier and COINTELPRO w/ Coleen Rowley X

The first FBI agent close to the Leonard Peltier case is calling for his freedom. Coleen Rowley recounts, in this wide-ranging and exclusive interview, her time as an agent in the Minneapolis field office. For nearly 50 years, the FBI has indoctrinated its agents on a specific version of events that led to Leonard Peltier’s arrest, conviction, and imprisonment. The mentality then, Rowley argues, is little different than the mentality today. That’s why she decided to break the silence and is calling on President Joe Biden to grant Leonard Peltier executive clemency.  

Rowley gives us an insider’s view of the FBI and how the dark and violent history of COINTELPRO, which targeted civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and social movements like the Black Panthers and AIM, didn’t end in 1971. It morphed and evolved over the years and continued well into the U.S. war on terror. Despite attempts at reform and accountability, the FBI continues its ongoing persecution of political prisoners like Leonard Peltier and the unarmed Water Protectors at Standing Rock.

04. [17:00] Don’t Believe Lies

Mar 28, 2022 – The importance of Leonard Peltier to Indigenous peoples

Co-hosts of Red Power Hour Melanie Yazzie and Elena Ortiz on the meaning of Leonard Peltier to Indigenous peoples.

05. [32:02] Oglala

Jul 25, 2022 – Remembering the Reign of Terror at Oglala

It’s been 47 years since the shootout at Oglala that left two FBI agents and a young Native man named Joe Stuntz dead. While Leonard Peltier unjustly sits in prison for the events of that day, the shootout and the deadly legacy of the “reign of terror” remain an open wound for community members and the American Indian Movement. Here’s their story.

06. [38:07] Father

Sep 4, 2022 Leonard Peltier’s Walk to Justice

The American Indian Movement has organized “Leonard Peltier’s Walk to Justice” from Minneapolis to Washington, D.C., where organizers plan to meet with government officials to demand the release of Peltier from the U.S. federal prison system. This recording is taken from the kickoff event in Minneapolis held on August 31st.

07. [44:10] Walk to Justice

Nov 20, 2022 – “Your people are coming for you”: the Leonard Peltier Walk to Justice 2022

The Leonard Peltier Walk to Justice kicked off in Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 1st, 2022. Ten weeks and 1103 miles later it reached Washington, D.C., where a rally was held demanding the freedom of Leonard Peltier, unjustly imprisoned for over 47 years.

08. [01:01:58] 79

Sep 12, 2023 – ‘A stain of injustice’: Free Leonard Peltier White House rally

On September 12, hundreds gathered on Piscataway lands in front of the White House to demand executive clemency for Leonard Peltier, who celebrated his 79th birthday that day. A caravan of supporters, family, and loved ones departed after ceremony from Rapid City, South Dakota en route to Washington, D.C.– a 1,600 mile journey that arrived on Monday, September 11.

09. [01:06:38] We Are Victorious 

Nov 23, 2023 – National Day of Mourning 2023

An annual tradition since 1970, National Day of Mourning is a solemn, spiritual and highly political day. Many of us fast from sundown the day before through the afternoon of that day (and have a social after NDOM so that participants in NDOM can break their fasts). We are mourning our ancestors and the genocide of our peoples and the theft of our lands. NDOM is a day when we mourn, but we also feel our strength in action and solidarity.

10. [01:18:55] Free All Political Prisoners

Feb 7, 2020 – Rise Up For Peltier Demonstration – Tiwa Territory

February 7, 2022, Albuquerque A.I.M. Grassroots, Indigenous Rights Center, and The Red Nation host the demonstration Rise Up For Peltier in downtown Albuquerque in front of the Pete V. Domenici United States Courthouse.

Ké Infoshop – Navajo Nation President Buu Nygren agrees to release proclamation in the coming weeks calling for a ceasefire in Palestine

Sun, 12/17/2023 - 10:27

[Via Ké Infoshop:]

.

NEWS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

December 15, 2023

Contact: keinfoshop@protonmail.com

Navajo Nation President Buu Nygren agrees to release

 proclamation in the coming weeks calling for a ceasefire in Palestine 

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. –  On Friday, December 15, the Navajo Nation Office of the President and Vice President (OPVP) invited local community organizations to the President’s office to discuss the necessity for the Navajo Nation to call for a ceasefire in Gaza/Palestine. The invitation was extended by President Nygren after he and First Lady Jasmine Blackwater-Nygren witnessed a demonstration for Palestine led by K’é Infoshop during the Christmas Tree Lighting event in Window Rock on the evening of Thursday, December 14. 

President Nygren met with Diné members from K’é Infoshop and other community organizations, expressing his distress about the tens of thousands of civilian casualties incurred from the Israeli bombing campaign in Gaza since October 7th, the majority of whom are children. He stated interest in using his authority as Navajo Nation President to proclaim a permanent ceasefire. 

The group provided information to President Nygren and his staff on the history of Palestine, Zionist settler colonialism, the US-backed genocide of Palestinian people, and urged all Diné people to research this widely-studied topic. They noted the parallels between Palestinian experiences and those of Diné people. 

“Witnessing the inhumane destruction, mass genocide and forced displacement of Palestinian peoples reminds us of the atrocities our own people faced under settler colonial violence during Hweeldí, so it is important for us to honor everything our ancestors have overcome and make it clear we will not play any part in condoning or remaining silent in face of the genocide that is being carried out by Israel with US support” stated KJ Naabaahii (K’é Infoshop). Following discussion, a statement was presented recommending that President Nygren calls for a permanent ceasefire in Palestine and for the Navajo Nation to sever all diplomatic, economic, cultural, and religious ties to the state of Israel, along with eleven other recommendations. 

President Nygren agreed to start the process of drafting a Proclamation calling for a ceasefire, saying he would notify the group by December 29, 2023, about a follow-up meeting to review the Proclamation after consulting Bidtah Becker, Chief Legal Counsel for the OPVP, to ensure that he is properly exercising the authorities of his office. 

“We know that this is definitely an action that can be taken by the Navajo Nation President’s office. Communicating clear positions on federal issues is something that has been done and continues to be done through directives to the Navajo Nation Washington Office,” said Jaiden Willeto (K’é Infoshop), who met with the President as part of the group. “As the largest tribal nation in the US, we have a responsibility to make it clear that we choose to be on the right side of history and uphold our responsibilities as Diné people to respect and protect all sacred life.” 

The group stated that they intend to maintain community education efforts regarding the Israeli occupation of Palestine whether or not President Nygren issues a ceasefire proclamation.

“Although we would appreciate an immediate response to the recommendations we presented today, we are going to continue our efforts to inform the public of the plight of the Palestinian people given the gravity of the genocide unfolding at this moment,” stated Rain Metteba (K’e Infoshop). “Millions of Palestinians are under attack without the basic necessities to survive the winter. The crisis worsens by the second and we cannot afford inaction.”
