Native Youth Movement Tooled by AIM,Inc and ideologically-challenged naivete? (tags)
For many years there's been a storm of building hype in indigenous country (especially around the militant aspect of indigenous resistance), but of late, it's become more and more hyped-up in a most curious way, including character assasination attempts against long-time figures without contexts and empathy. All this appears to be having an effect of someone trying to drive a wedge between the vital experience (or praxis) of the elders, and the too often easily-exploited anger of youth just entering the movement. This time around it's centered on different conceptions about how to run a resistance, one swamped in ideology (and a short history of merits in direct action), the other having a long record of uncompromising defense of indigenous peoples who insist on their autonomy. This article goes thru, albeit roughly, some of the history of the building hype and ways in which movements are divided and conquered, and gives lessons about the remaining apparently easily-exploitable weaknesses of the radical movement today.

Free Speech Radio's Uncritical Alliance with Indian Country Today (newspaper)? (tags)
In today's broadcast of "Free Speech Radio" (on KBOO), I heard commentary quoting the newspaper "Indian Country Today" in a way that appeared to make it sound as if this assimilationist newspaper is an authoritative, unbiased source in Indian country. Critical thinkers would do well to investigate the actual truth that this newspaper, led by editor Tim Giago, may as well have an open alliance with federal mandates to manipulate, suppress, quell and silence traditional voices and values. Autonomous (non-ideological) Natives/Indians expose the games of assimilationist-seeking "Indian Country Today" (note: Leftism is assimilationist when you want liberation from an entire value system!)
