Guest Opinion. At Cherokee Nation and across America, we recognize November as Diabetes Awareness Month. An estimated one in 10 Americans has diabetes. In Indian Country, the numbers are even higher, with more than one in six of the adult population affected. During Diabetes Awareness Month, we are making extra efforts to educate Cherokees about this serious disease.

Today on Veterans Day, we honor the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Commemorated annually, Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Then President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation in 1954 that changed the name to Veterans Day. It is a national holiday that honors all veterans—alive and dead—who have served the United States in the military.

Opinion. Occasionally, I see posts by Native News Online’s readers on our popular Facebook page who call me out for being charitable towards Democrats. Some commenters maintain that neither of the two major political parties have been kind to Native Americans. Others comment that Democrats take the Native vote for granted. Still others say negative things about President Joe Biden.

Guest Opinion. The Cherokee people have always been deeply connected to the land. Since time immemorial, we have depended on the land for food and medicine, natural beauty, and the perfect setting for Cherokee community life and cultural activities. From our ancient homelands in the southeast to our reservation in northeast Oklahoma, the land has always been essential for our collective well-being.

Guest Opinion. Ask most people to picture a Native American and a distinct image will inevitably come to mind. Maybe it’s a Disney character, sports mascot, or wooden figure outside of a cigar store. They’re almost certainly wearing a feathered headdress or face paint, carrying a tomahawk, or hunting buffalo with a bow and arrow. If this is your mental image of a “real” Native American, you are seeing a stereotype.

Guest Opinion. For the Cherokee people and for people everywhere, true freedom is impossible without control over our own food supply. Tribal nations have long suffered the ill effects of being pushed out of our lands, denied our well-developed traditional strategies for food production, and forced to rely on outside sources for the food we consume.

Guest Opinion. Systemic racism comes in many forms, and one way it is popularly seen is in undignified, mass-produced Halloween Indian costumes. This blatant disregard for Indigenous peoples and their (very different) cultures is disrespectful and offensive.
