Found at Laelaps blog.





Washington Post article,NATIVE TONGUES - If They're Lost, Who Are We?;
David Treuer: "But even as our populations are growing, something else, I fear, is dying: our cultures.
Among my fellow Indians, this is not a popular thing to say. Most of us immediately sneer at warnings of cultural death, calling the very idea further proof that "The Man" is still trying to kill us -- this time with attitudes and arguments rather than discrimination and guns. Any Indian caught worrying that we might indeed vanish can expect to be grouped with the self-haters. While many things go into making a culture -- kinship, history, religion, place -- the disappearance of our languages suggests that our cultures, in total, may not be here for much longer..."

"What is the Federation of Sovereign Nations (FSN)?

FSN is an international organization of independent indigenous nations formed in 2007 to promote peace, unity and protect indigenous peoples from genocide.
The FSN and its member nations strictly adhere to the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Nuremburg Principles."

"The Day That Cries Forever", is a collection of stories from the people of Chenega, a Native Alaskan village, which was destroyed by a tsunami after the Good Friday earthquake in 1964.
"Their stories will be unveiled on Saturday at a free staged reading of “The Day That Cries Forever” at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Salisbury Theatre. Dale Seeds, a professor of theater and dance at College of Wooster in Ohio, was introduced to a book of the same title in 2005 and crafted the interviews into a screenplay."
