"Western Shoshone Under Siege and Indigenous Family "Threatened & Harassed" over Thanksgiving"
Elder Carrie Dann (Western Shoshone Nation), Western Shoshone Defense Project (http://www.wsdp.org ), joins us for the first segment of today's show to discuss Barrack Gold Company, the worlds largest gold mining company, Cortez Hills Expansion Project. The project, recently approved by the Bureau of Land Management, and one of the largest open pit cyanide heap leach gold mines in the United States, sits on the flank of Mount Tenabo – an area well-known for its spiritual, cultural importance, and sacred site to the Western Shoshone Nation. Carrie provides us an update, plus more .
Dr. Michelle Rehaja (Seneca Nation), Assistant Professor at University of California, Riverside, joins us to discuss in length the recent Claremont, CA debacle heavily misreported in the corporate mass media over the past week. After Claremont, CA parents heard on a popular southern California morning talk show that a 40-year old tradition between two local elementary schools, where each schools kindergarten students dressed up as either 'pilgrims' and or Indians', was going to be cancelled or modified, many Claremont, CA parents reacted in protest at the event, made and continued personal threats and harassment against the indigenous mother and her five-year old daughter who refused to dress up as an 'Indian." Michelle provides listeners with a comprehensive narrative of what actually transpired, who really protested, the plethora of hate speech directed at her and her family, and what people can do to help remedy the situation.
