    Working Group Meeting - Continental Network of Indigenous Communications & Media

    UPDATE: The Working Group Meeting for the Continental Network of Indigenous Communications and Media has now been re-scheduled for March 3-5, here in  Phoenix Arizona. We re-extend the invitation to participate: March 3-5, 2015 Working Group Meeting of the Continental Network of Indigenous Communication and Media to be held in Phoenix, Arizona to receive the direct invitation of the Organizing Commission in person to attend the 3rd Summit in Bolivia 2016 and establish working relationships and organizing strategies across the continent towards a multi-lingual continental indigenous media network in complement to the processes of indigenous self determination and decolonization. Also plans are moving forward towards to realize a Continental Indigenous Commission (North-Central-South Abya Yala - Great Turtle Island) to meet with Pope Francis in  Philadelphia in September, re: The Colonial Doctrines of Discovery and the Papal Bulls, and the Communique to the Vatican from the V Continental Summit Abya Yala in November 2013: "With the intention of addressing the systematic violation of Human Rights of the Indigenous Peoples of Abya Yala, in particular the Right of Self Determination of Indigenous Peoples, and with the goal of instituting collective corrective measures in repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery which continues to serve as a mantel of camouflage for the pathology and colonization that deforms and distorts the spirit and well being of our common humanity;Our position is that the Vatican State, the Holy See and Your Holiness Pope Francis must take adequate measures and advance in the process of international responsibility for the role that the Catholic Church has played in the origin and as intellectual author of the criminal violations of Human Rights which continue to be normalized by the Doctrine of Discovery.We exhort Your Holiness to make public comment in repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery and in clarification of the contradictions here documented." Finally, the First Continental Encounter of Indigenous Nations, Pueblos, and Organizations occurred in June of 1990.  A twentieth anniversary gathering took place in 2010 once again in Quito.  A gathering of the organizations who have been consistent in the processes inaugurated since 1990 at the continental level of Abya Yala will be meet in Traditional Council on June 20-21, at theNAHUACALLI in Phoenix, Arizona.  Please consider attending.

    Sylvia McAdam (Saysewahum) Nationhood Interrupted: Revitalizing nêhiyaw Legal Systems Launching

    nêhiyaw (Cree) laws are shared and passed down through oral tradition and land­based use, utilizing stories, songs, ceremonies, and other sacred rites. Colonization has dramatically caused the heart­breaking loss of Indigenous languages, customs, and inherent systems. This has necessitated a departure from oral tradition to record and write the physical laws of the nêhiyawak. The spiritual laws can never be written down. As a result, this book is the first of its kind.Sylvia McAdam, a co­founder of the international movement Idle No More, shares nêhiyaw laws so generations of nêhiyaw and non­Indigenous people may understand and live by them to revitalize Indigenous nationhood. Readers will gain an understanding of and insight into the thoughts and worldview of nêhiyawak before and during the Treaty making process. It is McAdam's dream, shared by many, that freedom, liberation, and self-­determination will lead Indigenous peoples away from the pain of genocide and colonialism. Sylvia McAdam (Saysewahum) is a nêhiyaw woman, a citizen of the nêhiyaw Nation, who holds a Juris Doctorate (LL.B) from the University of Saskatchewan and a Bachelor’s of Human Justice (B.H.J) from the University of Regina. She is a recipient of the Carol Geller Human Rights Award, Foreign Policy’s Top 100 Global Thinkers Award, Social Justice Award, 2014 Global Citizen Award, and has received several eagle feathers from Indigenous communities. She remains active in the global grassroots Indigenous led resistance called “Idle No More”.
