Mother Earth is angry. Every day, we read headlines about how climate change-driven natural disasters are wreaking havoc in new and increasingly terrifying ways. Traditional methods of indigenous land stewardship called for living in balance with one another and with the natural world. Such ways of living in symbiosis with nature ensured that preservation of the environment for the benefit of future generations was crucial to any major decisions. The industrial world generally deviated from this way of thinking but the pendulum has swung back in favor of environmental stewardship now that humanity is facing a growing climate crisis.

Every ten years, states redraw the community lines for both Native and non-Native lands within their borders. This process is known as redistricting. These imaginary lines determine election districts, and the way that they are drawn can have a huge impact on the people that live in a community.

As we near our 10-year anniversary, staff at the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) continue to find ourselves humbled and inspired each day by the strength and efforts put forth by survivors, Tribal leaders, Tribal programs, and grassroots advocates working to end violence in Indigenous communities. This strength is a true testament to the courage and bravery of Indigenous people in developing culturally based responses and solutions to this crisis of violence against Native women and their children.

The expansion of tribal sovereignty through education is frequently overlooked. Tribes often lack the capital or other resources to start tribally-owned schools—an extremely costly endeavor that does not typically generate much revenue. But those challenges did not stop dedicated Comanche Nation citizens, descendants, and supporters. Utilizing a unique Oklahoma law that allows tribes to be the direct authorizers of tribal charter schools, the Comanche Nation is increasing its ability to define and create its own educational goals for its children.

There are many considerations when protecting property, employees and covering liability exposures, especially since they are not a one-size-fits-all risk model. Working with a trusted broker on key risks to design an insurance program around those risks is critical. Property, liability, and workers' compensation policies should be uniquely crafted to protect tribal assets, while considering cultural preferences. A Tribal Workers' Compensation (TWC) program should be selected without sacrificing the ability to determine its level of coverage. Entities can avoid the fraud and abuse that's prevalent in state systems through a sovereign TWC program. There are several workers’ compensation carriers serving Indian Country, so your broker should provide multiple options to ensure you aren’t paying too much. It’s a best practice to get a new quote annually. With the upcoming October 1 renewal period, it’s worth your time to compare and save on your insurance premiums.

You’ve heard of Peter Pan, but have you ever read the 1911 classic novel of the same name by J.M. Barrie? Growing up, I adored fantastical stories, but it never occurred to me to reach for that one. Its offensive depictions of Native characters were no secret, and my local library provided me with countless better books to read. That said, none of those better books showcased Native young heroes.
