Chickahominy Tribe reacquires ancestral lands by goobandit in IndigenousPeoples

[–]Tiwaking 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

The tribe, based near Richmond, Virginia, purchased the land known as Mamanahunt along the Chickahominy River using $3.5 million in funds from outgoing Gov. Ralph Northam’s budget.

“It’s once-in-a-lifetime,” Chickahominy Chief Stephen Adkins said. “Since the mid-17th century, we have had a footprint on the Chickahominy River.”

Thats incredible! Im glad they finally had an opportunity to return to their homelands.

While Trudeau dismissed the protests as sexist, racist outpourings of white supremacy, the indigenous participants I spoke to were keen to emphasise their diversity. Some indigenous people arrived in full regalia; a mother marched with a papoose on her back and two small children in traditional dress. “We met so many people from every background,” said an Ojibwa woman from a Northern Ontario reserve who helped organise protestors in her area. “Because we’re just like everyone else. We want the mandates to end. We want freedom of choice and autonomy over our own bodies. We want a good life and we want our children to have a good life. We want the same things.”

Court will assess double-jeopardy claim with implications for tribal sovereignty by goobandit in IndigenousPeoples

No update on this case yet: https://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/denezpi-v-united-states/

Feb 22 2022 Argued. For petitioner: Michael B. Kimberly, Washington, D. C. For respondent: Erica L. Ross, Assistant to the Solicitor General, Department of Justice, Washington, D. C.

https://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_transcripts/2021/20-7622_g3bh.pdf

MR. KIMBERLY: Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice, and may it please the Court: The Double Jeopardy Clause implicates two distinct exercises of sovereign authority: first, the authority to say what an offense is, and, second, the authority to put an individual in jeopardy for committing an offense.

This Court has consistently assumed the importance to the dual-sovereignty doctrine of both expressions of sovereign power. The analysis thus asks not only whether the two law-giving entities draw their authority from separate sovereigns but also whether the two law-enforcing entities do so.

The government disagrees. It says that the separateness of the offense-defining entities is all that matters. But that position would invite the precise abuses that the Double Jeopardy Clause was intended to prevent, and the CFR courts themselves provide the evidence. Assault, for an example, is an offense under both tribal law and the BIA's regulatory criminal code.

According to the government, if Petitioner had gone to trial rather than taking a plea on the tribal offense and he had been acquitted, the very same prosecutor would have been free the very next day to bring a successive prosecution for a substantively identical offense, this time having honed his case and refined his proof based on the lessons learned in the first prosecution. That is not an outcome that the framers of the Double Jeopardy Clause would have thought tolerable.

In arguing otherwise, the government focuses on a single word, "offense," which it takes entirely in isolation and to which it applies rigid dictionary definitions. But the Bill of Rights prevents not only transgressions of the amendment's literal terms but also governmental efforts to circumvent their protections.

Indeed, I suspect that when one civilization displaces or conquers another, the side that had more technology gets to write the prevailing historical narrative of self-glorification. A shame really, seeing as western civilization still venerates the ancient Greek philosophers, despite their relative technological inferiority to modern society.

As i said I have only recently become aware of some of these ideas. I personally wonder whether I would have been much more fulfilled in life living as some of the Native Americans were in the 1600-1700's (I realize there is wide variation among cultural practices here). A community working together to provide the basic needs of food and shelter for all while ensuring personal liberty and autonomy is something we can't even manage with all of our 'scientific progress'.

It’s impossible to know how many indigenous themes/ideas/practices were influential in shaping the “modern” world. And I’m not someone who thinks it was all maliciously stolen. It’s silly to think people never just exchanged cultural practices because they thought it would be helpful to someone who was unfamiliar.

Really interesting article, thank you.

The contributions of Native American thinkers seem to be very under-appreciated. I recently read about the contributions of the Iroquois speaking philosopher Kandiaronk to the French Enlightenment in David Graeber's new book 'The Dawn of Everything'. It's a fascinating read for anyone interested in this topic, and certainly think there were Native American groups that western civilization could continue to learn from.

Yup, the parties only want hypothetical bullshit solutions to use for political gain. No one wants the hard conversations but that’s the only way to enact any change or connect with people. Most don’t want to hear anything negative, even if it’ll help them in the long run, and those in power know giving out crumbs is good enough.

yeah him being in prison can for sure be a problem for him, but of course if he is guilty he deserves to be there. Yeah in a perfect world you'd have your own prisons, and your own everything that a sovereign country has, but that is difficult logistically. Natives sometimes make good money on things like pipelines or casinos, many other things, maybe they could afford to build their own prisons someday. Woke people would shreak but who cares.

I think he should stay, but I also am worried about who he’s with in there because there’s not a lot of natives.

I guess that's fine as long as they go to a prison, would you want to create and maintain your own huge prisons, probably not. Would you be angry at all if say a tribal member did commit a felony, it's proven guilty and all, but the fed govt decided to let them out of prison? Sometimes they do that, shortening sentences for woke reasons or because of the pandemic.

Usually they issue notice that the person is barred in the newspaper AFTER they’ve already been removed from the reservation. And yeah, if you commit a felony on reservation, you go to federal prison. Even if it’s a tribal member committing a felony, they might be held for a bit in tribal jail, but same.

Do you mean though, if an illegal immigrant is found on your reservation, the native american authroties, whomever they may be, I mean whomever is in charge, they will detain that person then drive and deliver them to some federal prison? That would make sense, it would be a longer drive and unnecessary to drive them all the way to mexico or whatever country. It's your soverign land though so the main thing you would care about is getting them out of it.

I'd assume you would want to expand your borders, to not just be forced onto small reservations but to take back land that was long ago stolen by immigrants from europe.

Original goal of Landback movement, to expand land and hold stewardship over greater areas. Some tribes just wanted land acknowledgment.

It's not a states issue it's a fed govt issue to enforce the borders.

And they only do when it comes to regular citizens, while people working in government offices donate and receive donations from orgs to further illegal immigration.

And like you said, it’s up to the fed gov whether or not to deport someone. I believe if found on tribal property, the person will be taken to a federal prison facility, but I’m not 100%

Academia has been diverted by authoritarian nerds who just want to replicate themselves to serve those in power.

So no one has human rights, so why have any laws at all? It doesn’t matter how wishful the thinking behind it is, we’ve created the system that hinges on rights of individuals. Even those who violate laws have rights as citizens, except in very specific cases, historically. Or recently in broad general cases, for example the NDAA, which should be nullified or amended at the very least.

barred? technically they're barred from coming into the entire USA but what good is a law if not enforced. Would the native american police authroties deport an illegal if they found one? I am sure they would. As is their right.

I'd assume you would want to expand your borders, to not just be forced onto small reservations but to take back land that was long ago stolen by immigrants from europe. That won't be happening due to any agreements, or contracts, only by war, and the barrel of a gun. You should want to anyways. It is also human nature to want to expand borders, it has happened, all of history is fighting over land. Native Americans are also being by a great replacement, numbers are dwindling due to inbreeding, lower birth rates, poor healthcare, some day perhaps they will be gone and the reservations will just be taken back.

It's not a states issue it's a fed govt issue to enforce the borders.

There’s already been illegal immigrants barred from my reservation for crimes against tribal people, so trust me, I’m aware.

In AZ, it’s their land to decide if they want a wall or not, regardless of what you and I think, regardless of the greater impact for immigration UNLESS the gov admits they’re aiding a rebellion or insurrection, in which case they are guilty AND SO IS EVERY ORG HELPING IMMIGRANTS. I’m not even opposed to borders, how can I be if I’m defending property? These no border NGOs pollute our causes with global bullshit because they don’t want anyone but them to own land! The fact is that area of border is tribal property and their tribe’s decision. It’s either theirs or the government can take it back, take their sovereignty back, take their citizenship back, and take yours back too.

Some believe the raison d'etre for college students these days is to learn new ways to be offended.

As for "inalienable rights", I've always argued those don't exist - that it's simply a fantasy or wishful thinking. This is mainly because inalienable means "can't be taken away". So if they're taken away, it disproves inalienable.

Same applies if they're called human rights instead. If something can be taken away, it's not a right. Anyway, that's how my logic works.

I believe it was a difference of opinion. The perception was that Indians would 'give gifts', then later want them back. It's been a long time, so I don't remember the specifics. Could have been land, hunting rights, or anything really. Two completely different cultures are likely to misunderstand the others intentions and practices.

why think people that conquered you and broke many agreements in the past would suddenly honor them.

Because this nation was founded on Law, if we’re going to continue as a nation of law then that shit needs to be applied equally. The laws written for us are the only thing stopping them from completely stripping rights from all citizens. Our lands were granted to us as sovereign nations, if they can seize those lands for corporate interests, there is nothing stopping them from doing that to all citizens. This is why LANDBACK has been hijacked. This is why they have people like you arguing about a wall instead of who has the real power to dictate what happens on their PRIVATE PROPERTY, their SOVEREIGN LANDS. Are they going to strip the rights of CITIZENS in Arizona for occupying their own lands? If they do, then the charge would have to be REBELLION OR INSURRECTION. Funny how illegal immigrants and ALL those who aid them are not facing the same charges. Are you getting it yet?

Typical Indian giver shit.

Technically, an Indian giver is an Indian, because of the first word in the term. Indians and the receivers apparently had differences of opinions over gifts vs loans. Indians wanted the presumed "gifts" back, so the term Indian giver was born.

They did have your land conquered and stolen, that is tough.

Yes WE did, and were subsequently naturalized as citizens of these United States of America, guaranteeing our rights, specifically in the OP case, the 14th amendment. I’ve stuck to this in my last...every single comment. And you’re telling me I shouldn’t have wanted that 100 years ago? Saying I should have built a wall 500 years ago? Did I tell you maybe you should have revolted and killed your kings if you didn’t like it there? No, because that’s irrelevant.

But it’s easy to see what’s going on here. You’re made that now YOU are being treated how we were and it fucking sucks. You’re mad that your BORN AND/OR NATURALIZED RIGHTS are being violated by people in power who lie to you. People who make agreements and refuse to honor them.

Look at you crying racism lmao as if you’re offended by the term, and telling me “YOU” should have built a wall 500 years ago! That’s all you’ve got.

if it is indian giving the mistake was promising them something they don't need in the first place, why would they want anyone to promise them to let them go to a white school? Improve your own schools. You're racist to use the term indian also. Think about that. Columbus came and took over 600 years ago, ok maybe you should have built a wall? Either way stop complaining, you have it easy now cuz of affirmative action.

My post was on the case because of Indian giving. Yeah, it’s a racist practice, but the case is about accountability. For someone who has a post up on race versus class, you’re not seeing how in this case, the school tried to exclude themselves from honoring a verbal contract with the people.

Yeah also interesting you'd need to go back 100 years to find something that is even slightly racist, which is outside forces getting a poor girl to attend a school outside of her school district. The long bus rides are child abuse too in some ways.

I’m not talking about now, I’m talking about the case and the time period. The town told the tribe their children could go to the new school, they were denied entry, so they sued. The end. We wouldn’t even have known that it was possible to hold Indian givers to their word if it wasn’t for education received from the whites on how “their” system works. We were forced to assimilate, so it’s our system too now, much to your chagrin.

but the whites haven’t always been as receptive to hearing a brown person say bad things about a fellow white.

yeah CRT, I know, dems just got demolished because of it

brown people actually have it easier now cuz of quotas and affirmative action, so stop complaining. We need to repeal those so we can go back to equality.

You seem to know who created the school system, maybe this is the first time you’ve heard this, but the whites haven’t always been as receptive to hearing a brown person say bad things about a fellow white. Sometimes, it’s crazy I know, they would actually punish the browns for even suggesting a white did something wrong! So maybe, a brown committing a crime to punish a very bad white would bring trouble to the brown community.

The point is, don’t force us into sub-par educational facilities to denounce our culture and assimilate to be real Americans if you don’t want us to use your real American system to elevate ourselves and hold you to your word.

Yeah it’s fucked up. Current generations are barely learning about inter-generational trauma. It’s getting better, but it’s going to take time.

I am more concerned about academia hijacking movements for sovereignty to tie them into global authoritarianism. I just watched a native org at COP26 get doomed in real time, but they won’t make the leap to fully realize it’s all bullshit. Like, they got so close, and then went back on it. Frustrating. I can only nudge people so much, you know?

shouldn't want to go to white man's schools anyway. And that was forced with assimilation in the past anyway, then they were tricked into going against that. The answer is to fix up your own schools.

I’m pretty sure the tribe was under the impression they’d be able to attend the new school since that was the agreement for the votes. Typical Indian giver shit. Maybe there was help with the case, but I believe it was the tribe’s idea to seek help.

They say they’re going to come out of their pockets more...we’ll see. The real handmade ones are mostly for ceremonies so it’s not like they have had much competition. I think it’s similar to Pendleton where they do enough for native orgs that it’s excused for the most part.

I like boat shoes which are like the useful version of moccasins. I mean, did anyone think this was legit Native American craftsmanship? I'd never heard of the brand so I can't say. I think that'd matter.

If they're just apologizing for cultural appropriation and not really doing anything, they're just getting free advertising. I have now heard of their brand and I have to admit, it makes me want to buy boat shoes.

I already have boat (fishing) sandals.

The fishing equivalent is generally better because it has to fulfill a purpose. Be useful.

Better go with goobandit fishing footwear instead.

Hahaha, I know resistance to tyranny is understood by my fellow dissidents on Saidit, but I expected there’d be at least one. Skoden!

I have no problem with you “celebrating” Columbus Day, which I doubt you even do...because if you did, you’d probably have a better argument than it being “the first known historical connection of the Americas to the rest of the world.”

Here on s/indigenouspeoples, since I’m pretty much the only one posting here, I choose not to uplift someone who wrote a how-to guide on the mistreatment of native people, including native North Americans. Instead, let’s celebrate my people, whose ancestors were forced into state-sponsored brainwash institutions, abused by Jesuit rapists, and have quietly suffered in shame through that trauma. Our new generations are motivated to heal that trauma, break self-sabotaging cycles, and ensure our sovereignty via the US court system. We owe our lives to those who went down fighting tyrants and those who silently resisted tyranny in the darkest corners of their mind by remembering our songs and our ceremonies until it was safe to share them again. You see, for culture bearers, it’s indigenous peoples day every day, no lobbying, no federal recognition, that’s just how it is, and those culture bearers are who I’ll continue celebrating.
