Donna Ennis: Open border to indigenous sisters and children


Donna Ennis calls on the United States to open the border to indigenous women from Canada and indigenous children from Mexico and Central America:
    In Canada a disproportionate number of indigenous women are missing and found murdered with evidence of police collusion and the roots of the problem reside in colonial administrative policies which the federal government maintains. Genocidal policies designed to destroy the indigenous people have been acknowledged and apologies have been given but there is no change in current policies which continue to violate human rights of the indigenous people.

Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe won’t join Plymouth 400


The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe won’t be celebrating the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Pilgrims, preservation officer Ramona Peters said:
    For the Wampanoag who have called coastal Massachusetts their home for more than 10,000 years, the founding of Plymouth in 1620, doesn’t feel that far removed, nor does its 400th anniversary bring reason to rejoice.
