Indigenous and Tribal Issues in the U.S. and around the World: Regarding Sovereignty and Self-Government
"The issues of Indigenous Sovereignty relate directly to the colonization of all Indigenous peoples around the world. The pathology of the predatory hegemonic imperialism of western consciousness has been the experience of all contacts with Indigenous people, based on the assimilation to bankrupt morality within Western public policies in which they are now committing “Filicide” -- destroying their own children to obtain objects which promise evidence of power.
As Chief Seattle stated, “What you do to Mother Earth, you do to yourself.” We are all connected, and in the context of interconnectedness, that consciousness is necessary for all of us to create the social revolution to protect the living species and the physical bioconnectedness of our existence. We must all be the power of change!”
Deni Leonard is a member of the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Oregon and has lived in San Francisco since the middle 1970s. He arrived to teach at U.C. Berkeley and stayed to develop new initiatives for economic and political strategies for the Indigenous people. He has taught many seminars on finance, sovereignty, and business development.
Time will be allotted for Q&A, discussion and announcements.
Donations to Occupy Forum to cover costs are encouraged; no one turned away!
