    Finalists Announced in Harvard's Tribal Governance Awards Program CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sixteen tribal government initiatives have been selected as finalists for Harvard University’s tribal governance awards program. Now in its second year, Honoring Contributions in the Governance of American Indians (Honoring Nations) identifies and celebrates outstanding examples of tribal governance among the more than 550 Indian nations in the United States. "Most importantly, Honoring Nations provides an opportunity for others to learn about and replicate these tribal governance success stories," said Andrew Lee, the program's executive director. "This year's finalists provide compelling support for one of the Harvard Project’s most fundamental research conclusions. If tribes want to build healthy, prosperous nations they must first put into place effective institutions of self-governance," said Joseph Kalt, professor of international political economy and co-founder of the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development. Based at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, Honoring Nations is administered by the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development, established in 1986. The Harvard Project's goal is to understand the conditions under which self-determined social and economic development is achieved among American Indian nations. The program is modeled after similar government best practices in Brazil, Chile, the Philippines, the U.S. and South Africa. Core funding is provided by the Ford Foundation. The 16 finalists were selected from an initial pool of 70 applications from more than 50 Indian nations. The finalists' programs span a wide range of government activities, including social services, economic development, resource management and intergovernmental relations.

    NWF Sponsors Native American Tribal Leaders to Express their Support for CARA
    Tribal leaders voice their support for CARA at a D.C. media briefing on Monday, June 26. Left to right, Dallas Massey, White Mountain Apache, Aaron Miles, Nez Perce, Fred DuBray, Cheyenne River Sioux, Steve Torbit, Louie LaRose, Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Buffalo Program Manager Steve Torbit introduces speakers at the NWF-sponsored media briefing. Dallas Massey, Chair of the White Mountain Apache Tribe in Arizona, voices strong support for CARA and details the need for even greater federal backing for tribal conservation efforts. Fred DuBray of the Cheyenne River Sioux describes how passage of the Conservation and Reinvestment Act could make a tremendous difference for his tribe and their work to conserve habitat and wildlife. Louie LaRose vividly describes what bringing back species like the American Buffalo has meant for the Winnebago people, and how CARA passage would help strengthen these efforts. On Monday, June 26, NWF hosted a press briefing for Native American Tribal leaders in Washington, DC, to express their support for CARA, the Conservation and Reinvestment Act. Later the same day and Tuesday, the leaders met with members of Congress, urging their support for CARA.

    Adamson: Blind justice

    Posted: April 01, 2003 - 9:18am EST
    Our country holds forth a system of justice that is blind to all prejudice, when in fact for Indian people it is also a system blind to justice. Take the Supreme Court’s recent decision in United States v. Navajo Nation. The Navajo were seeking $600 million in compensation from Peabody Coal Company. Lower courts and an appeals board had awarded it. The Supreme Court accepted an appeal by the Bush administration Justice Department, and proceeded to overturn the rulings for compensation by a 6 - 3 margin. That left the Navajo with nothing in the case except legal bills.
    Mohawk: Why some American fundamentalists embrace Israel

    Posted: March 31, 2003 - 11:23am EST
    The world has been changed by peculiarities of the American political culture which created an Electoral College to give unequal weight to voters in smaller rural states and which, in 2000, overturned the popular vote to place a man with strong fundamentalist religious support and instincts in the White House. George W. Bush is probably the most radical president ever to occupy the Oval Office. On election night 2000, the political map was projected on millions of television screens. It showed states for Gore in the industrialized north and Great Lakes, and on the west coast. States that voted for Bush were in the south and the west.

The White Mountain Apache Tribe’s Wildlife and Outdoor Recreation Division was to have been a recipient of the Native Tourism Alliance’s NTA Trust Award at the conference. Now, in addition to the award, organizers from the Western American Indian Chamber and Native Tourism Alliance hope to utilize the conference to focus international attention to the critical needs of the Apache tribe from Arizona. The ferocious fires that started in June 2002 burned about 490 thousand acres in Arizona, with 276 thousand acres of those timberlands on the Fort Apache Reservation. President Bush visited the area and declared the region a major disaster area.

    Please note that I am not an expert on Native American history or culture. I am white, live in Arizona and find our Native American history fascinating, especially here in Arizona. While this site will be entertaining and hopefully informative, I must forwarn that the graphics used in no way refers to a specific Nation. They are being used for visuals only. If anyone has a suggestion and/or correction please don't hesitate to contact me. Remember... Our Native Americans were the first "Americans". Some tribes residing in Arizona include the Hopi, Navajo, Apache, Mohave, Chemehuevi, Quechan, Cocopah, Havasupai, Pueblo, Pima, Hualapais, Pascua Yaqui and Kaibab-Paiute. For the time being the main focus of this site will be the Apache Tribe as I find this tribe the most fascinating and many of the other tribes are decendents of the Apache. I will include other Arizona Nations as time permits. "When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die,
    the world cries and you rejoice." A little food for thought: Once there were no taxes no police and no crime Women did all the work Then the white man came along to Improve things.

    Back to the top Back to National-NAGPRA [Federal Register: September 12, 2002 (Volume 67, Number 177)] [Notices] [Page 57836-57837] From the Federal Register Online via GPO Access [] [DOCID:fr12se02-95] - DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR National Park Service Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee Findings and Recommendations Regarding Cultural Items in the Possession of the Denver Art Museum AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior. ACTION: Notice. - After full and careful consideration of the information and statements submitted and presented by the Denver Art Museum and the Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group at the May 31-June 2, 2002, meeting of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee, the review committee finds that this information is sufficient to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that the seven cultural items are sacred objects and objects of cultural patrimony that meet the definitions of ``sacred objects'' and ``objects of cultural patrimony'' under NAGPRA 25 U.S.C. 3001. It also finds that these cultural items are culturally affiliated with the constituent tribes of the Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group. The Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group is composed of the authorized representatives of the Fort McDowell Mohave-Apache Indian Community of the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation, Arizona, San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona, the Tonto Apache Tribe of Arizona, the White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona, and the Yavapai-Apache Nation of the Camp Verde Indian Reservation, Arizona. The seven cultural items are a Dilzini medicine cord and pouch, a Dilzini wooden doll, two caps, and three Dilzini Gaan masks. The review committee recognizes that the Denver Art Museum engaged in good faith consultation with the Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group for several years. An impasse seemed to have developed in the consultation process. Officials of the Denver Art Museum felt that the information provided was not sufficient to meet the standard of NAGPRA and requested additional information. The Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group felt that the information it had provided was sufficient and that it was unable to provide additional sensitive religious information. The Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group requested the assistance of the review committee in resolving the dispute. During its May 31-June 2, 2002, meeting, the review committee considered the written information provided by both parties. In addition, the review committee was able to question both parties and obtain additional information regarding the identity and cultural affiliation of the seven items. The review committee concurs with the Denver Art Museum that sufficient evidence is available to support the following determinations of cultural affiliation:1.The Dilzini medicine cord and pouch (accession number 1936.216.1) is culturally affiliated with the White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona.2.The Dilzini wooden doll (accession number 1936.216.2) is culturally affiliated with the White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona.3.The cap (accession number 1946.215) is culturally affiliated with the San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona.4.The Dilzini Gaan mask (accession number 1947.256) is culturally affiliated with the White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona.5.Dilzini Gaan Mask (accession number 1947.257) is culturally affiliated with the San Carlos Apache Tribe of the San Carlos Reservation, Arizona.6.The Dilzini Gaan mask (accession number 1947.258) is culturally affiliated with the White Mountain Apache Tribe of the Fort Apache Reservation, Arizona. Oral testimony provided at the review committee meeting regarding the seventh item, a second cap (accession number 19417.1749), indicated that the symbols on the cap represent an Apache sacred site. Oral tradition provided at the meeting indicates that the cap was associated with a medicine man from Cibeque, AZ. The review committee finds that the evidence that the two parties provided to the review committee in advance of the review committee meeting, along with additional information that they provided at the meeting, is sufficient to support a determination that the seven items are objects that are specific ceremonial items that are needed by traditional Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by their present-day adherents. Mr. Levi DeHose and Mr. Carlyle Russell were identified as traditional Apache religious leaders responsible for the performance of specific healing ceremonies. The seven items were identified as being needed for the conduct of these specific healing ceremonies, and the items must be returned to their resting place in order to continue the healing process. The review committee finds that the evidence that the two parties provided [[Page 57837]] in advance of the review committee meeting, along with additional information that they provided at the meeting, is sufficient to support a determination that the seven items have ongoing historical, traditional, or cultural importance central to the Apache themselves, rather than property owned by an individual tribal member. Information provided at the meeting indicated that the continuing use of the seven items was necessary for the continuation of the healing process for present and future generations. The serious social problems and wide- scale suffering among the Western Apache were attributed to the alienation of these and other ceremonial items from their resting places. The return of these items to their resting places will be beneficial to the health of the Apache people. The review committee also reaffirms the importance of ongoing, good faith consultation between the parties as the most effective means for finding repatriation solutions and precluding disputes.Based on these findings, the review committee recommends that the Denver Art Museum consider the oral testimony provided by the Western Apache NAGPRA Working Group, consult with the anthropological literature, re-evaluate the determination for repatriation, and inform the review committee of the museum's findings within the next 90 days. The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act directs the Secretary of the Interior to establish and maintain an advisory committee composed of seven private citizens nominated by Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, and national museum organizations and scientific organizations (25 U.S.C. 3006). The responsibilities of the review committee include reviewing and making findings related to the identity or cultural affiliation of Native American human remains or other cultural items, or to the return of human remains or other cultural items; and facilitating the resolution of disputes among Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, or lineal descendants and Federal agencies or museums relating to the return of human remains and other cultural items. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3006 (g). These findings and recommendations do not necessarily represent the views of the National Park Service or the Secretary of the Interior. The National Park Service and the Secretary of the Interior have not taken a position on these matters. Dated: July 16, 2002 Armand Minthorn Chair, Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee.
