Indigenous peace group set up to track Cardston incidences

first_imgHolly MooreAPTN NewsA collective called the Niitsitapi Peace Camp say they set up a tipi site in June this year to keep track of racism experienced by Indigenous people in Cardston. They say the A&W incident is just one example of the many they are gathering weekly.“We put up the camp to address the racism and discrimination in the town of Cardston. We are documenting it,” said camp member Kim Weasel Fat. “We don’t have a physical camp anymore but we are working on a strategic plan and next steps.”Stewart Brown Weasel is one of the group members who spoke to APTN National News. As a collective, the camp does not have a central spokesperson or leader.Brown Weasel said he is surprised at how little has changed in the 20 years he has lived in the area.“it has gotten worse,” he said. “That is why we are bringing awareness.”Other group members are Roger and Annette Young Pine. Russell Running Bird and Delcy Healy.Since the peace camp started, member Shauna Fox says that there is a sense of pride in the community.“They are standing up to the racism now, instead of just letting it go like it was normalized behaviour,” she said. “We aren’t only a place to report, we have sharing circles so it is restorative, healing.”last_img read more

Tiger Woods Pursuit Of History Resumes At US Open

When you’re Tiger Woods, you live for this week at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. From the beginning, he placed his focus on winning major championships. With 14 to his credit, second-most in history, Woods has established himself among golfing greats. But that is not enough.That is why he looks at the U.S. Open that begins Thursday with so much hope, so much optimism. Having won two weeks ago at The Memorial helps, too, especially since it was a come-from-behind win. He is seeking to move closer to Jack Nicklaus, who holds the record for major championships with 18.Woods has been stuck four majors behind Nicklaus for the last four years. He last conquered a major in 2008 — the U.S. Open over Rocco Mediate at Torry Pines. To take this U.S. Open will require length, skill and patience, which is just how Woods likes it.“I’ve always preferred it to be more difficult, there’s no doubt,” he said. “And I’ve always preferred it to be fast. I just like a fast golf course, because then you have to shape shots. You have to think.”Woods will play the first round Thursday with the popular Bubba Watson, winner of this year’s Masters, and long-time rival Phil Mickelson, making for must-see golf.The Olympic Club is a long and difficult course, protected by water and bunkers. Most experts insist a score of even round after four days could be enough to claim victory. For Woods, he said a win this week would do little to deter his detractors from doubting him.“I think even if I do win a major championship, it will still be, ‘You’re not to 18 yet’, or ‘When will you get to 19,’ ” Woods said. “I’ve dealt with that my entire career, ever since I was an amateur and playing all the way through and to professional golf. It hasn’t changed.”Woods has won twice this year and insists he’s close to regaining the excellence that dominated the sport for several years prior to injuries plagued him — and his well-documented personal troubles that led to a divorce from wife, Elin. At 36, no matter what happens at the Olympic Club, Woods said he still has time to topple Nicklaus mark.“Well, Jack did it at 46, right?” Woods said of the age Nicklaus was when he won his last major. “So I’ve got 10 (years).Tom Watson almost pulled it off at 59. It can be done. We can play for a very long time. And that’s the great thing about staying in shape and lifting weights and being fit is that the playing careers have extended.” read more

Supreme Court Rules For Texas Redistricting Plans

first_img Listen Share J. David Ake/APThe sun flares in the camera lens as it rises behind the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington.In a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court said that Texas’ legislative and congressional maps are not a racial gerrymander and that all districts are OK, except for one, which it determined is a racial gerrymander — House District 90.“Except with respect to one Texas House district, we hold that the court below erred in effectively enjoining the use of the districting maps adopted by the Legislature in 2013,” conservative Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion.In a one-page concurrence, joined by Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas — one of the most conservative (in philosophy and use of words) justices — reiterated his view that Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act “does not apply to redistricting,” per SCOTUSBlog.Justice Sonia Sotomayor, joined by the court’s liberals, wrote a scathing 46-page dissent. (That is five pages longer than the majority opinion.)“The Court today goes out of its way to permit the State of Texas to use maps that the three-judge District Court unanimously found were adopted for the purpose of preserving the racial discrimination that tainted its previous maps,” she wrote.MORE: Teddy Rave of UH Law Center Discusses Latest SCOTUS Rulings X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /14:25last_img read more
