1/25 A #THREAD for @MarkBourrie to help him understand:

- The basic functions of social media

- His own misogynist slander

- The racist issue regarding promotion of White revisionist history against #Indigenous Peoples

- The folly of Small Man Syndrome & knee-jerk assumptions
2/25 I assure @MarkBourrie that I haven't deleted anything

If you visit my "tweets & replies" you'll see everything I posted, without a shred of regret or wish to conceal, rescind, or amend any part of my sentiments toward you

3/25 RE Bourrie

Your false allegation about 'heavily editing & removing material' stems from your own ineptitude at social media

Comments within threads (often called "sub-tweets") become orphaned from the main convo

...while protecting those within our community not of the tribe.
As such, Zionism is the most progressive movement in a repressive and violent region.
Zionism knows from experience we do not live in a perfect world. It is a world that still seeks to victimize us.

At the #FNMIAQ tonight, I asked folks what they would like future admin #LUpqp1 to consider in their roles to support #Indigenous ed. So many fantastic ideas. Iris was duly impressed. I will collate in this thread
1. Education. Take time to educate yourself, and support staff learning. Attend workshops. Dedicate time @ staff meetings, PD to learning #Indigenous #truths & how to incorporate in classes #LUpqp1
2. Take this learning about #Indigenous ed seriously. Don't treat it like it is just another "thing" we have to do. This can happen if incorporated into SIPSA, Annual Learning Plans, Book Clubs #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ

Excerpts (with screenshots) from “Sick heart of a generation” by A/Proff @TracyWesterman proud Njamal woman from the Pilbara region of WA and active, 20+ years, clinical psychologist (Masters + PhD). Tracy was named WA’s Oz of the Year last year. #auspol
Excerpts:

“Staggeringly, funded programs are not required to demonstrate evidence of impact, nor are they required to demonstrate a measurable reduction in suicide and mental health risk factors.” #auspol #ausvotes19 #ausvotes
“So, given this, can governments truly claim they are funding suicide prevention? You cannot claim prevention if you arenʼt measuring risk. Itʼs that simple.” #auspol #ausvotes #ausvotes19

Today, Freda Huson of the #Unistoten is in New York at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, to address the ongoing human rights violations against the Wet’suwet’en people.

This thread is her statement in full. Visit our FB page for the video. #wetsuwetenstrong
"Thank you for the opportunity to speak.

I am Freda Huson of Unist’ot’en –Wet’suwet’en People of Canada.

I am here to express concerns with Human Rights Violations happening to my people. Since time immemorial, my people have lived in a balanced relationship with our lands.
We depend on the land to survive, and we are responsible for protecting it. Since Canada began settling on our territories, we have been forced onto reservations and away from our traditional land base.

I want to share 2 stories. Both of these women have recently been potentially diagnosed with cancer.

For now, I'll call them "woman on the left" and "woman on the right".

I want to share the differences in health care.

Please finish the thread to see how I know them.
Woman on the left is Dutch. She is a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Woman on the right is Indigenous. She is also a wife (widow), mother, and grandmother.
Woman on the left recently got a call saying she needs to go for further testing after results came back from a test she took a week ago.

Woman on the right has been waiting for further testing for months. Her scheduled MRI was just cancelled because the machine broke down.

This is a #Thread about one of the many trolls who is targeting #Native and #Indigenous @Twitter accounts.

The account #@Blondi65003273 is interacting with #NativeAmericans by #JustAskingQuestions

Nothing obviously provocative.

#NativeTwitter
One of Blondi’s followers is another account that claims to be #Native #Ojibwe
However, one of her first posts demonstrate her to be not your average concerned Wisconsin #Native from the North Woods. She posts a picture of a dismembered body that is supposed to convince voters that we need a stronger immigration policy to deter crime.

Thread: It's an issue so big, we have to try to make sure all our relations are aware. I don't know how many people are understanding truly what Trudeau's Indigenous Rights Framework is. ...2/

#NativeTwitter #Indigenous #cdnpoli
2/... This is what previous Indig leadership had been fighing against for decades. There are so many Chiefs signing onto this for their people. I don't understand how they can do this if they honestly understand what that paper means for all of their generations to follow. ...3/
3/...That Framework offers a lot of money today - big words about 'self-determination' and privatizing reserves for "self-generating revenue". That's community property now, as was once all of what's Canada now, what's now called "Crown lands". ...4/

1/9 #CDNpoli

It's been brought to my attention that a small handful of #NDP propagandists are attempting to discredit my #SNCLavalin - #IndigenousDirective timeline RE Jody Wilson-Raybould, Jane Philpott, PMJT, etc, to other #CDNmedia journalists
2/9 #CDNpoli

Please let it be known, without a shadow of a doubt

#NDP Leader, Jagmeet Singh, did in fact speak with the CEO of #SNCLavalin about a DPA

So did the NDP's MP for Sherbrooke, Québec, Pierre-Luc Dusseault

The record ► lobbycanada.gc.ca/app/secure/ocl…

And a screencap
3/9 #CDNpoli

It's disappointing the #NDP would add to #SNCLavalinScandal by attempting to mislead #CDNmedia & #Elxn43 voters

If they're interested to learn the facts, here is everyone #SNCLavalin lobbied for a deferred prosecution agreement (aka #DPA)

Dear twitter,

After a loooong 2wks of conferencing at #SfAA2019 & #AAPA2019, & after a couple of speedbumps, I'm finally back home in Oregon & I have time to do something I've been trying to do since #AmAnth2018--

My ~Twitter Grant Proposal~! (Cue echo effect)

#DeStressMyDiss
I came up w/the idea of proposing my research to twitter last fall while attempting force my proposal to fit the requirements of a theory-heavy grant opportunity.

I often have to re-write what I *really* mean to account for the views/feels of my "peers" who "peer-review" my app.
But the thing is, they aren't my "peers," bc #Indigenous academics like me haven't been welcome in #Bioanth long enough for funding agencies to actually have enough of my peers available to peer-review.

So my work must be squished & squeezed to get Western scientists to like it.

Hey @JustinTrudeau - Can you hear us?

#MercuryJustice now!
"Thanks for your donation" - smugger words have never been said 🙄

@JustinTrudeau is failing to help #GrassyNarrows, a key test of his 'commitment' to meaningful relationships with First Nations and to a healthy environment.

In April, Alberta, Canada, will elect a new provincial government. Many may be unaware that the current @rachelnotley govt has adopted a globally significant #climate plan. Here is what's in it, what it has done, and what is at stake next month. A THREAD #abvote 1/24
First, where did Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan plan come from? (George Soros, perhaps? Foreign-funded radicals?) No. It came from Albertans. A volunteer panel led by @andrew_leach spoke w 1K residents in-person and heard from 25K+ online. 2/24
The panel also engaged with 350+ stakeholders and met w Aboriginal Peoples in three cities, and received hundreds of detailed submissions from NGOs, industry groups and others. 3/24

As with #foreignaffairs policy that the US employs in the #MiddleEast,
#Trump domestic policy is to employ #Native Leaders who can advise him about accessing #Native land under the guise of cutting Commerce Dept regulations which would open up #Reservations to #BigOil Industry.
#Trump has set up a #NativeAmerican Affairs Coalition w/ 27 tribal members to advise him about the needs of Indian Country. The issue that concerns #Trump & the #native group the most is the desire to access the natural energy reserves on #Reservations.

mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/id…
#Native #Reservations consist of 2% of US Territory but could possibly hold 20% of the country’s “oil and gas reserves.” (This makes wind and solar much more attractive considering you wouldn’t have to steal #native land all over again.)

@JustinTrudeau did not direct the Attorney General to intervene in the #SNCLavalin case, so therefore he respected the independence of the AG which was confirmed by JWR @Puglaas in her testimony.

#Cdnpoli

The #CPC passed the Director of public Prosecutions act in 2006, clearly the AG retains political discretion to override decision's by the director (DPP) on whether to prosecute.

#Bcpoli #Abpoli #Skpoli #Ontpoli #Cdnpoli
When the Attorney General decides whether to initiate and conduct a prosecution on behalf of the federal Crown, Crown counsel must consider two issues:

Thread - fascinating stories of #development in #India from students @azimpremjiuniv. 8 week field projects -sampling of diverse insights from ~160 students across India. #1 - interior forest communities struggling to transition from forest to agricultural livelihoods
#2 - more #displacement of #indigenous communities due to exclusionary #conservation
#3 #displacement of tribal communities due to dams - a sadly common story of loss and misery, and ultimately of lopsided development #8weekfieldprojects @azimpremjiuniv

Okay, so putting this out there. There are two narratives on #Venezuela. 1. People are starving and the nation is an abject hellhole bc #Maduro is a dictator driving the nation into the ground and supporting #Guiado is the will of the people.
2. Though Maduro is def a pretty bad person and no benevolent ruler, he still has real support. The idea that most Venezuelans want him deposed, much less replaced with Guiado is manufactured by our media inflating the sentiments of a decent but not overwhelming pt of ppl.
So I wanted to reach out here to get some better info, hopefully from Venezuelans). I think there's probably some truth in the middle of the various narratives. Here's some of the concepts I have about the issue (as a person just looking at US policy and various news)

Rollercoaster narrative arc of these social media events is changing too fast. A new issue will exist next week but targeting individuals in the #CovingtonCatholic video is part of a societal problem we see with the Internet & doxing a kid doesn’t educate, it polarizes hate. 1/
Instead, target the root of these conflict problems - why not use balanced guidance & unbiased education to move cultures & ideology closer together, not further apart. These kids are mocking #Indigenous traditional voice - that’s a racist thing to do. 2/
Whatever your view, start with the school sending kids to a ProLife march. You can’t argue that sending 100 young men to attend a rally to dictate how women choose to use their body isn’t inflammatory & structured in a patriarchal view of the world. Things are going to occur. 3/
