Santa Cruz

On Santa Cruz Island, rising seas present archaeological emergency
By LOUIS SAHAGUNcontact the reporter

Archaeologist Torben Rick watched with frustration as pounding surf clawed at one of North America's oldest homesteads, a massive heap of village foundations, cutting tools, beads and kitchen discards left behind over the last 13,000 years.
Here, seafaring tribal members cast fishing nets from canoes made of redwood planks, prepared dinners on stone griddles, and painstakingly chipped out tiny shell beads prized as currency.
But unless something is done, this rich trove of Native American history and several others on the island will almost certainly be destroyed by rising seas and strong storm surges along beaches that will soon no longer exist.

Give Tribes More Control of Justice in Indian Country
Charles Hobbs and Tim Seward - 8/17/14

Late last year the Indian Law and Order Commission (“Commission”) released “A Roadmap for Making Native America Safer” (“Report”), with over 40 unanimous recommendations to make Indian country safer and more just for all U.S. citizens, and to reduce the unacceptably high rates of violent crime in Indian country. The overall theme of the Report is to allow tribes to assume greater local tribal control and accountability, and to reduce federal and state jurisdiction, while respecting federal constitutional rights of all U.S. citizens.

Authorities link slaying of Salt River officer to Indian prison gang

Authorities in Arizona believe an Indian prison gang orchestrated the murder of a police officer for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
Jair Cabrera, 37, was killed in the line of duty on May 24. Authorities believe three gang members deliberately lured him to an intersection on the reservation, where he was shot.
Prior to the murder, authorities had been preparing an operation that targeted Indian gang members in the area. The tribal police force was part of a task force but abruptly pulled out earlier this month, possibly over the mistaken stop and interrogation of a tribal executive.

Reclaiming Healthy Food Systems in Indian Country
ICTMN Staff - 8/14/14

For thousands of years, Native communities in the Americas sustained themselves through a rich variety of complex food systems, each adapted to local cultural and environmental conditions. The traditional ways of planting, gathering, fishing and hunting led to balanced diets, good health and enduring cultures.
Today, American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians suffer from alarmingly high rates of diabetes, heart disease and other diet-related illness. Among American Indian children, 31.2 percent of four-year-olds are obese, a higher rate than for any other racial or ethnic group in the United States. Tooth decay is five times higher among Native children ages two to four than the U.S. average. At the same time, the poverty rate in Indian Country is 27.3 percent, nearly twice the national rate.
