  • United Nations

    Does anyone know if we have a seat at the UN conferences? Or how many soveriegn nations are present?
    If not, how do we get there? As a soveriegn nation I would think that would be an important step to take.
    Also, with the upcoming war with China, do we have them as allies?
    If China becomes World Power, how do we get them to honor our soveriegn rights/treaties/etc?
    Who do we need to write/talk to, to get our Tribal Leaders to secure these rights for us?

    Unless the US grants some type of representation...I am 99% sure that there is not tribal presence on the United Nations...I am also willing to bet that such representation is not permitted by the US or at least would have to be ratified by Congress. The soveriegn nation provision still makes the Indian nations subject to Federal Law, oversight, etc.

        So, no one is interested in having China as an ally? Or just too scared to even talk about it?
        Might be our one chance to get our land back...any thoughts?

          The iroquois send representatives to the UN every year I believe. I was just reading about some of it the other night but I'm too tired to remember details. I know Mad Bear went to Cuba to ask Fidel Castro to sponsor the Tuscarora to sit in .. and Castro did, however Mad Bear was not acting as a true representative of the Tuscarora (he just always went out ambassadoring like he was or something). Back in the 70's is when this happened and there were more than just iroquois representatives there.. there were lakota and navajo... it was huge, but I don't know how many still send people, or how much of a voice they have.

            yes, the Chinese are known for their good treatment of indigenous peoples. Have you studied Chinese history at all, over the last, oh, 5,000 years?

              I am preparing myself to work for the U.N. At least, as an interpreter. I think it would be an awesome job. I have only 1 year left of study! Whoo hoo!!

                Yes, I have studied chinese history. America isn't so great either and yet they jump at every chance to 'help' other nations in need.
                Just because China doesn't want THEIR indigenous ppl, doesn't mean they should be discounted as a possible ally to indigenous ppl here.

                  Just asking.. but why do you think being an idigenous nation in the US or Canada be so important to have China as an ally? I'm just curious.

                    Because China is already threatening to nuke the U.S. and Bush is using the media to ready the American ppl to go to war with them. And, I think America will lose and China will be world power. And, if China is world power, then I'd rather have them as an ally, rather than an enemy, kwim?
                    Also, China is three times wealthier than America and if we had them as allies, we could create trade agreements, etc that would empower our nations and help us regain our rights.

                            I don't know if even the 'News of the World' or other tabloids, who make a living coming up with bizarre scenarios, could improve on this! China is threatening to 'nuke' the U.S. Bush 'uses' the media, who obey him (yeah, right!) to stir up war with China....China is 3 times wealthier than America???? (geeez why do they keep emmigrating then???)
                            China takes over world control, and empowers NDNS...uh huh...and Elvises clone's gonna come out of the bermuda triangle...assume dictatorial powers...in conjunction with aliens....and make the whole world Graceland!!!
