August 2013
First Nations - Land Rights and Environmentalism in British Columbia.". - This website "documents in pictures with commentary the environmental havoc caused by European settler society to the pre colonial world of what is now known as British Columbia (BC). It argues that the road back to environmental sanity must go through the restitution of past wrongs to First Nations by means of strong support for their land rights over and against the continuing rapacious and short sighted destruction of primaeval forests, ancient trees, wild salmon runs, grizzly bear habitats, etc. The European First Nations website links political activism with the results of scholarly and scientific studies by juxtaposing historical images with representations of current affairs."

If you have not heard about "Idle No More", it is a grass roots movement in Canada to support First Nations as they interact with the Canadian government. As with any movement, it has its supporters, its detractors, and those who have yet to make up their mind. The following brief article and links can help you learn more about these events and efforts.

History of Idle No More Grassroots Movement - Written by Jessica Gordon

Idle No More began with 4 ladies; Nina Wilson, Sylvia McAdam, Jessica Gordon & Sheelah McLean who felt it was urgent to act on current and upcoming legislation that not only affects our First Nations people but the rest of Canada's citizens, lands and waters. The focus is on grassroots voices, treaty and sovereignty, it began in the early part of October when discussing Bill C 45. All 4 women knew that this was a time to act, as this bill and other proposed legislation would affect not only Indigenous people but also the lands, water and the rest of Canada. With the focus on the most urgent bill knowing it would initiate attention to all other legislation, the 4 ladies held rallies and teach-ins to generate discussion and provide information. They then decided a nation wide event was garnered so all could participate, thus, The National Day of Solidarity & Resurgence was called for December 10th, 2012, to oppose all legislation and to build solidarity while asserting inherent rights and nationhood while protecting our lands for all people. These colonial forms of legislation that the government expects to unilaterally impose on us has brought us together, to stand together - Jessica Gordon

Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival (AICLS). The AICLS is a non-profit founded in 1992. From their website's Vision Statement: "The Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival is an organization devoted to implementing and supporting the revitalization of indigenous California languages. Its mission is to assist California Indians in language maintenance and renewal. California was and still is one of the most linguistically diverse parts of the world. Estimates as to how many indigenous languages were spoken here before contact range from 80 to 100. There are presently 50 indigenous languages that still have one or more native speakers, though these numbers are dwindling fast. There are also at least 30 languages with no native speakers left with descendants who desperately want to regain their languages. The Advocates mission is to make their efforts successful. It is the dream of the Advocates that California Indian languages will once again be spoken in native communities."

There is a fair amount of material on their website, including a nice list of related websites and websites devoted to indigenous languages. They also put out an interesting newsletter. http://aicls.org/
