Aboriginal fury over topless ban|
Aborigines in central Australia are furious after police interrupted a traditional dance featuring topless women, saying they will file a formal complaint to an anti-discrimination body. A group of Aboriginal women from Papunya, a remote community near Alice Springs, were practicing a dance in a public park last week ahead of a performance in Sydney when police asked them to stop, the commissioner of an elected Aboriginal council said.
Im An Indiannot Native American - by David Yeagley
As an Oklahoma Comanche, I consider myself an Indianan American Indian.
I am not a Native American, nor a First Nations, nor an Aboriginal, and least of all an Indigenous person.
Im simply a descendent of savage hunters with the most lethal war skills and artful horsemanship known in American history.

The earliest mention of the celebration of Christmas by Amerindians dates back to 1641.
Jean de Brébeuf, a Jesuit missionary who lived with the Georgian Bay Hurons from 1626, composed a Christmas carol in their language telling the story of the birth of the Infant Jesus.
Father Brébeuf wanted to convey a real sense of the great mystery of the Nativity and so adapted his story, written in verse, to the distinctive characteristics of the Amerindian culture. Thus the Infant Jesus was wrapped in rabbit skin rather than linen swaddling clothes, he slept in a lodge of broken bark and not in a manger; hunters replaced the shepherds and, as a final touch, three Indian chiefs were substituted for the Wise Men who, instead of gold, incense and myrrh, offered fur skins to the holy Child.
rift more than a black-and-white issue|
Wewoka, Okla. - Kenneth Chambers, chief of the Seminole Nation, is absolutely sure of the truth of the matter. "There is no black Seminole," he expostulated on a recent day, rising from his chair to drive the point home like a preacher warning of hell and damnation... a chasm has opened between the descendants of the Seminole people, Indians and escaped slaves who banded together in Florida against the white onslaught and were eventually deposited here along what became known as the Trail of Tears. - (Tyrone N. Butts)
to Editor of NNN Aboriginal News:|
[Personal] "I am looking for a contact phone number for a woman named Whitebear Woman, who was co-presenter at a Wild Women Workshop, at Hollyhock on Cortes Island B.C. a few years ago. The number I have is no longer in service and I am wondering if you are the same woman, or if you know of this woman and can connect me? I am hoping to speak with her about being a possible presenter at a women's camp next year. Anyway, if you can help, please let me know.
Thanks for your time.

tells recruiters they can no longer look for troops among natives in Canada
The Americans were operating on the belief that under a treaty signed in 1794 between the United States and Britain, they were allowed to recruit Canadian natives for their armed forces. American recruiters were also under the impression that many of the aboriginals held dual U.S.-Canadian citizenship. - (Rense.com)

Easter Island Seeks Autonomy from Chile |
HANGA ROA, Chile (Reuters) - Hundreds of years ago the people of Easter Island carved and mounted the giant stone figures whose mystery now draws tourists to the world's most remote inhabited island. But their descendants don't own or manage the land where the proud statues stand. "This territory is part of Polynesia. We have our own language, system, culture, identity, and climate. Everything here is different, which justifies us having a different administration," said Easter Island Mayor Petero Edmunds, the main promoter of autonomy. - (NNN Abo)

Victim's Relatives to Visit Fiji |
The Australian descendants of a Christian missionary eaten by cannibals 136 years ago will travel to Fiji this week, hoping to help lift a curse on the village where he was killed. Rev. Thomas Baker was murdered in 1867 at Nubutautau, a remote community high in the hills of the South Pacific island of Viti Levu. Residents say their community has had bad luck since Baker was consumed and they blame his avenging spirit.

New Guinea: ''Witch' hacked to death |
A WOMAN accused of sorcery has been hacked to death and dumped in a river just outside Papua New Guinea's capital, Port Moresby. The woman's husband and son were also attacked at the weekend by rival tribesmen, who accused the family of practising sorcery. Many Papua New Guineans cling to ancestral beliefs in black magic and payback revenge attacks. Last week, tribesmen in the remote Western Highlands rampaged through a neighbouring village, raping women, killing pigs and destroying food gardens.
