Third Session – May 19th, 2004

 

Agenda Item 4 (c): Health

 

Aquechewa, honorable and distinguished members of the Permanent Forum, Member States, Indigenous brothers and sisters

 

My name is Rev.RaDine Amen-ra of the Foundation of Indigenous Americans of Anasazi Heritage.

 

The Anasazi people or Amerindians of North America represented by the several ethnic groups, however it is an ignored, but undeniable fact the largest population of Amerindians in North America ethnic identity is represented by brown – black skin with wavy to extremely bushy hair. Upon discovery of the Anasazi people, there existed a civilization with over 500 nation/states, a population of over 150 million people, and a tremendous matriarchal culture, with an average family size of 10-21 offspring per women.

 

The original name to represent the descendants from the women of Amerindians was Anasazi. The name Anasazi was replaced by the term Negro by colonizers, in their effort to destroy and rape the Anasazi women of their human rights to be respected for their ethnic identity, and right to live as a viable race on their land.

 

Today I take this opportunity to be a voice for the millions of Amerindians representing Anasazi heritage, and let their unspoken expression of spiritual, emotional, and physical suffering from generations of dehumanizing violations. Over the last 500 years – present, the enormous impact of colonization from generations of systematic discrimination, institutionalized racism directed towards them. Anasazi descendants from the original heritage represented by Negro women have been surviving through a holocaust of magnanimous proportions. These violations ranging from being deprived the human right to Ethnic identity, the right to sustain our heritage in our land, intellectual property theft of our heritage, including DNA harvesting from the afterbirth of Anasazi children by bio-genetics engineering corporations, forced assimilation into a false identity for belonging to our heritage homeland; which maintains our invisibility and dis-respect of our human rights.

 

Anasazi women have to struggle to continue their bloodlines. Today the effects of mis-education of the Anasazi children, racism, and environmental ethnocide. The Anasazi people are ignorant of the essential knowledge needed for self preservation to sustain the viability of their heritage belonging to the Amerindian race in our only homeland called Americia. If action is not taken to correct the human rights to ethnic identity and connect the people back to the knowledge to sustain there life within there indigenous heritage culture and international action taken to address the issues of environmental destruction contribution to the deterioration of the health and viability of the Anasazi people. The result will be the complete extermination of the original heritage descendants or Amerindians in the next 50 years. Today the effects of systematic destruction of Anasazi families are evident through the CDC statistics revealing the consistent increase of diseases effecting Anasazi people. Anasazi people have the highest morbidly rates for infant portability, communicable and non communicable diseases in the United States.

 

In lieu of the critical health care crisis facing Anasazi descendants, we respectfully reiterate the following recommendations made by the Second Session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

 

  1. We recommendation 81 from the Second Session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues which asked the Working Group on Indigenous Populations to undertake a study on genocidal and ethnocidal practices perpetrated on Indigenous People and request that you add ecocide to the study to look at the effects of environmental genocide on indigenous peoples. We recommend that a research study be undertaken to examine the effects of stripping the environment of vital organisms such as trees on the overall health and wellness of indigenous peoples.

 

  1. We support the recommendations made during the Second Session of the Permanent Forum under the mandated area of Health Section 1a which urges the World Health Organization (WHO), the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and all United Nations bodies and agencies involved in health programs to incorporate indigenous healers and cultural perspectives on health and illness into their policies. In spite of all the technological advances in science and medicine in the US Anasazi descendants are mistrustful of the medical system and continue to utilize traditional indigenous and alternative healers to supplement their health care. We also support recommendation no. 2 which calls for UN agencies to convene a workshop on indigenous health with emphasis on indigenous women and children, infant mortality, reproductive rights, sterilization, domestic abuse and addiction and collecting data related to these issues.

 

  1. We support the general recommendation made during the Second Session of the Permanent Forum under the mandated area of Health section 68 which urges outlining a global strategy on health of marginalized ethnic populations, to gather data and extend program services to indigenous people based on criteria relating to ethnicity, cultural or tribal affiliations and language.

 

  1. We support the recommendation made by the Second Session of the Permanent Forum that the Global Fund review their funding strategy in order to include access by indigenous non-governmental organizations and health providers for community-based culturally appropriate HIV/AIDS programs.

 

  1. Finally, we agree that a healthy population is a central goal of human development. We recommend support the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation, in paragraphs 53 and 54, under Health and Sustainable Development which stresses the need to address the causes of ill health, including environmental causes.

 


 

 

United Nations Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues

Third Session – May 19th, 2004

 

Agenda Item 4 (c): Health

 

Aquechewa, honorable and distinguished members of the Permanent Forum, Member States, Indigenous brothers and sisters.

 

My name is Rev. Denise Hylton-Barrett of the Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anisazi Heritage. I represent the 30 million descendants of the Anisazi or Amerindians of North America who have resided in this country since the beginning of civilization. These indigenous peoples are brown skinned people with wavy to bushy hair who resemble their trees and environment. The Anisazi people lived here hundreds of years ago maintaining their resolve for the land. They were one with the environment and understood the importance of maintaining the ecosystem of the woodlands areas for the perpetuation of their bloodlines. Over the last 500 years the US government and private corporations have continued to decimate the land by cutting down the trees and destroying the woodlands.

 

We are deeply concerned about the health status of the descendants of the Anisazi women and the future of their bloodline and generations. Anisazi descendants across the United States are currently dying in this eco-system. We believe that one major factor affecting the health care of this group is the environment, which is causing severe disease, illness and death. No one is researching the impact of cutting down trees on indigenous people whose lifeline is connected to the trees. Anisazi descendants who reside in urban areas are finding their health status growing increasing worse. In the US, the rate of Asthma affecting Anisazi descendants and their offspring has reached epidemic proportions. Our children are plagued with asthma in the inner cities. People who live in NYC will tell you they have to resort to using dehumidifiers, ionizers and air fresheners in order to breathe because the air quality is so poor.

 

The United States government has become increasingly aware of the need to eliminate the disparities in health care affecting racial and ethnic minorities. The US DHHS, Office of Minority Health purpose is to improve the health status of minority and low-income persons through working to eliminate these disparities. However, statistics gathered from the, Office of Women’s Health indicate that:

 

  1. In 2000, women of Anisazi descent represented more than 18 million or 12. % of all females living in the US.

 

  1. In 2000, women of Anisazi descent had an infant mortality rate twice that of whites in the US and a birth rate three times lower. Women of Anisazi descent had the highest infant mortality rate (14.1 per 1,000 births) while the mortality rate of infants born to white mothers was 5.7%.

 

  1. In 2000, women of Anisazi descent had the highest incidence of low birthweight babies than any other racial or ethnic group. Almost 13% of these infants were low birthweight, compared with almost 7% of whites.

 

  1. Mortality is higher for well educated and non-poor Anisazi descendants than other races. In 2000, women of Anisazi descent of all ages had a maternal rate of 20.1 per 100,000 live births, which was more than three times higher than that of White women (6.2%). Anisazi descendants have a 4 times the risk of dying from pregnancy complications & childbirth, and almost twice the risk of medical complications of whites.

 

  1. In the US, Anisazi descendants represent 38 percent of all HIV/AIDS cases reported in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Anisazi descendants between the ages of 25-44 are at highest risk for HIV/AIDS in both men and women. This year, the death rate from AIDS in women of Anisazi descent was the highest of any group of American women at 13 per 100,000. In contrast, the mortality rate from AIDS for white females were less than one death (0.7%)

 

  1. Among women of Anisazi descent, diabetes is the fourth leading cause of death in 2000, responsible for 7,250 deaths or 5.2% of deaths from all causes. The health outcomes of Anisazi descendants are far worse than those of White women who have this disease.

 

  1. Anisazi descendants have the highest rates of tuberculosis in the US. Of people who have TB who were born in the US almost 50% of the cases occur in Anisazi descendants (46.7%).

 

  1. Women of Anisazi descent have the highest mortality rate from lung cancer (40.2% per 100,000) among all minority groups and have the highest mortality rate from breast cancer of all population groups (34.9 per 100,000) which is higher than that of White women.

 

  1. Women of Anisazi descent have the highest death rate from stroke of all women, at 78.1 deaths per 100,000 in contrast to 57.8 for White women and they have the highest mortality rate from heart disease (284.1 per 100,000) of all American women.

 

  1. On average Anasazi descendants are twice as likely to die from disease, accidents, behavior and homicide at every stage of life than whites. Anisazi descendants are 5 times more likely to die as victims of homicide.

 

  1. In the US, the rate of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome affecting Anisazi descendants is three times the rate of other races and on the increase.

 

 

In lieu of the critical health care crisis facing Anisazi female descendants, we respectfully reiterate the following recommendations made by the Second Session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

 

  1. We recommendation 81 from the Second Session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues which asked the Working Group on Indigenous Populations to undertake a study on genocidal and ethnocidal practices perpetrated on Indigenous People and request that you add ecocide to the study to look at the effects of environmental genocide on indigenous peoples. We recommend that a research study be undertaken to examine the effects of stripping the environment of vital organisms such as trees on the overall health and wellness of indigenous peoples.

 

  1. We support the recommendations made during the Second Session of the Permanent Forum under the mandated area of Health Section 1a which urges the World Health Organization (WHO), the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and all United Nations bodies and agencies involved in health programs to incorporate indigenous healers and cultural perspectives on health and illness into their policies. In spite of all the technological advances in science and medicine in the US, Anisazi descendants are mistrustful of the medical system and continue to utilize traditional indigenous and alternative healers to supplement their health care. We also support recommendation no. 2 which calls for UN agencies to convene a workshop on indigenous health with emphasis on indigenous women and children, infant mortality, reproductive rights, sterilization, domestic abuse and addiction and collecting data related to these issues.

 

  1. We support the general recommendation made during the Second Session of the Permanent Forum under the mandated area of Health section 68 which urges outlining a global strategy on health of marginalized ethnic populations, to gather data and extend program services to indigenous people based on criteria relating to ethnicity, cultural or tribal affiliations and language.

 

  1. We support the recommendation made by the Second Session of the Permanent Forum that the Global Fund review their funding strategy in order to include access by indigenous non-governmental organizations and health providers for community-based culturally appropriate HIV/AIDS programs.

 

  1. Finally, we agree that a healthy population is a central goal of human development. We recommend support the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation, in paragraphs 53 and 54, under Health and Sustainable Development which stresses the need to address the causes of ill health, including environmental causes.

 

In conclusion, in spite of all of these critical health problems, women of Anisazi descent are survivors. We have one of the lowest rates of suicide of all ethnic groups in the US. We continue to embrace life for their children and future generations. Thank you

The Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anisazi Heritage

 

Agenda Item 4(d) Human Rights

 

Aquechewa, Honorable and distinguished members of the Permanent Forum, Member States, Indigenous brothers and sisters.

 

My name is Rev. RaDine Amen-ra of the Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anisazi Heritage.

 

The Anisazi people or Amerindians of North America comprised of woodland people with over 500 nation/states, a population of over 150 million people, and over 8000 years developed a tremendous matriarchal civilization and culture, represented by the Statue of Liberty, which is the foundation for the wealth the United States enjoys today.

 

It is an ignored, but undeniable fact the racial identity for the largest population of Indigenous American Heritage was represented by brown skin with wavy to extremely bushy hair. The original name for the race of Amerindian people is Anisazi. The name Anisazi was replaced by the termed Negro by the colonizers invading to exploit their heritage culture, and lands.

 

Since the discovery of the wealth, including material and knowledge resources, within the Americas. Over the last 500 years to the present, Anisazi descendants have been surviving through a holocaust of magnanimous proportions from systematic and institutionalized systems of racism directed towards them.

 

Today, I take this opportunity to be a voice for millions of Amerindians representing the population of Anisazi heritage, and let their unspoken expression of spiritual, emotional, and physical suffering from generations of dehumanizing violations. These violations ranging from being deprived the human right to human dignity towards the respect of our humanity as a race of people; the right to live to sustain our race in our homeland, ethnic and racial identity theft, cultural exploitation, poverty, police brutality, intellectual property theft, including genetic harvesting of DNA from Anisazi children, compounded with forced assimilation into a false identity to integrate into the U.S; which maintains our invisibility.

 

It is through this tremendous rape of the Amerindian heritage by immigrating people, and the enormous impact of colonization over generations against the humanity of people belonging to the women of the Anisazi people, the tremendous oppression from the severe abuse to our humanity by the implementation of patriarchal culture to destroy their families,. Anisazi women struggle to continue the bloodlines in their land.

 

The grandmothers, still continued to tell their stories of the truth of their ancestry to the children, to combat against the miss- education of their children into a very distorted western view of their ancestry.

However, if truth be known, enslavement is an experience of a people; it is not the identity of heritage for a people.

 

Today, because of the mis- education of the Anisazi children, the essential knowledge needed for self preservation to sustain the viability of the original heritage belonging to the Amerindian race in our homeland called America, has been ignored. If action is not taken to connect the people back to their indigenous heritage culture and international action taken to stop environmental ethnocide of America by the United States, it will result in the complete extermination of the descendants from the Anisazi women or Amerindians in the next 50 years. The effects of environmental ethnocide are evident through the CDC statistics revealing the increase of diseases that reduce the life expectancy of Anisazi people. Anisazi descendants have the highest morbidity rates for communicable and non-communicable diseases in the United States.

 

We recommend that the Permanent Forum urge the committee on the Convention for the Elimination of All forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), to pay special attention to issues related to the destruction of families belonging to indigenous women living under colonization.

 

2. We urge the adoption of the draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

 

3. We support the Commission on Human Rights draft principles and guidelines for the Protection of the Heritage of Indigenous people.

 

4. We urge the forum to recognize the factual representation of racial identity for tribal connections belonging to Anisazi heritage. This will stop the ethnic identity theft by non- indigenous heritage descendants against the original heritage descendants to the ancestral birth right to heritage humanity developed by their ancestral grandmothers of Anisazi women.

 

5. We recommend the working group on Indigenous populations to extend its principles and guidelines to rectify the effects on the morbidity of Anisazi people from the destruction of the indigenous Forest (tree's) environment belonging to North America.

 

In conclusion, the Anisazi People request the Commission on Human Rights to support the efforts for the promotion and protection of Human Rights belonging to the Anisazi people.

Agenda Item 5(b) Heritage- Human Rights

 

Aquechewa, Honorable and distinguished members of the Working Group, Member States, Indigenous brothers and sisters.

 

My name is Rev. RaDine Amen-ra of the Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anisazi Heritage.

The Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anisazi Heritage has spoken before to support the rights of Indigenous People in general and in particular for the recognition of the largest Indigenous American Indian population still living in North America, currently under colonel occupation to the United States.

It is an ignored, but undeniable fact the racial identity for the largest population of Indigenous American Heritage is represented by brown skin with wavy to extremely bushy hair. The original name for the race of American Indian people is Anisazi. The name Anisazi was replaced by the termed Negro by the colonizers invading the Americas to enslave the people, for extermination, and exploit their heritage culture, and lands. . Today, I take this opportunity to be a voice for 35million Negro Americans representing the factual descendants for the continuation of the direct American Indian/ Anisazi bloodlines, and let their unspoken expression of spiritual, emotional, and physical suffering from generations of dehumanizing violations.

The Anisazi people or Amerindians of North America comprised of woodland people with over 500 nation/states, including Cherokee, Chickasaw, Muskogee, Comanche, and Apache, with a population at time of discovery of over 150 million + people. The Anisazi People was a tremendous matriarchal culture and civilization developed by Negro women for over 8000 years, represented by the Statue of Liberty for America. The wealth from the Anisazi heritage is the foundation for the creation of wealth the United States enjoys today.

 

Since the discovery of the wealth in natural resources, bio-diversity, cultural, intellectual property, arts, and heritage knowledge, within the Americas. Over the last 500 years to the present, Anisazi descendants have been surviving through a holocaust of magnanimous proportions from systematic and institutionalized systems of racism directed towards them. The enormous impact of colonization over generations against the humanity of Amerindian people has allowed the tremendous rape of the Amerindian heritage from the Descendants to Amerindian heritage by non-indigenous people. These violations ranging from being deprived the human right to human dignity towards the respect for their Indigenous ancestral heritage identity, recognition of our humanity as a race of people to our Ancestral names, artifacts, culture, sacred ceremonies, ancestral remains, ethnic and racial identity distortion, cultural exploitation, poverty, police brutality, intellectual property theft, including genetic harvesting of DNA from the afterbirth of Negro/ Anisazi children, by bio genetic corporations to sell to European people, who want the genetic qualities of Amerindians people but not the racial identity. The Anisazi people as Negro's are forced through assimilation into accepting a false ethnic identity for integration into the U.S, allowing their future generations to be classified as non-indigenous nationals without the right to live to sustain our race in our homeland.

The violations to our human rights are compounded by in-direct to non-indigenous people posturing as representative of Indigenous ethnic and racial identity, allows the continuation of the rape of our heritage, artifacts, culture, to continue ,and maintains our invisibility.

To combat against the miss- education of their children into a very distorted western view of their ancestry, The grandmothers, still continued to tell there stories of the truth of their ancestry to the children, However, if truth be known, enslavement is an experience of a people; it is not the ethnic identity of heritage for a people.

 

Today, because of the mis- education about the racial identity and ethnic heritage belonging to the Anisazi children by the United States. It has allowed people of in-direct decent to claim the heritage protection of another race for themselves and to capitalized from the theft of heritage belonging to direct descendants of the Anisazi Amerindian/ Negro heritage.

 

We recommend to the Working Group on Indigenous Populations to recognize the factual representation of racial identity for tribal connections belonging to Anisazi American heritage and include legal instruments , which foster against racial and ethnic identity distortion towards Heritage claims by in direct/non-indigenous people. This will allow indigenous people living under colonization recovery and restitution against the theft of their heritage.

 

2. We urge the adoption of the draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

 

3. We support the Commission on Human Rights draft principles and guidelines for the Protection of the Heritage of Indigenous people.

 

4. We recommend the working group on Indigenous populations to extend its principles and guidelines to rectify the effects on the morbidity of Anisazi people from the destruction of the indigenous Forest (tree's) environment belonging to North America.

 

 

In conclusion, the Anisazi People request the Commission on Human Rights to support the efforts for the promotion and protection of Human Rights belonging to the Anisazi people in the United States.

Dear Isabell Kempf,

 

My name is Rev. RaDine Amen-ra representative for the Foundation of Indigenous Americans of Anisazi Heritage. FIAAH represents and advocates for the humanity of the Anisazi people commonly referred to as Negro/ Black American people. I was referred to speak to you from Mr. John Scott about ways to register the Foundation in Geneva., if it is necessary. I also would like to discuss how the Foundation can work towards the basic implementation of human rights for Anisazi Americans. Today millions of Anisazi Americans are being assimilated into a new Ethnic identity and are forced to identify themselves as African Americans, and to view their heritage of being American Indian as told by their families as being incorrect ,because the racial identity of American Indians has been changed by the United States from being Negro heritage to European heritage, when in fact they are the direct descendants of Anisazi/ American Indian women & men unions., and represent the continuation of the indigenous American people bloodlines belonging to America. Due to the enormous implications from this serious distortion of facts. A registration has started since 2000 for people of Anisazi American decent to claim there factual heritage inherited to them from their grandmothers.. FIAAH has received well over 7000 registrations and is processing more claims as the word is getting out to the 35 million Anisazi descendants left in America. Many Anisazi/Black Americans see this false ethnic identity as a method to completely sever their descendants from having any human rights to connection to the ancestral humanity or rights to their fundamental freedoms to live in their homeland. Today, the fear of false incarceration for non-violent crimes, employment marginalization, racism, discrimination, and environmental deterioration, which is causing a critical Health crisis;- resulting in the highest morbidity rates in the United States, has been compounded by their new status from being minorities into immigrant minorities living in America. Many African Nations have stated very clearly Anisazi/ Black Americans as we are referred to today ,are not there stolen or misplaced descendants. Africa is not our homeland, America is.. Recently, President Bush signed the Homeland security act, In this Bill it allows the deportation of Naturalized citizens individually or collectively to be deported from America and deposited on any land mass.

FIAAH would like to know how to register the heritage claims with the Human rights Commission, to ensure the fundamental human right towards the Anisazi people’s right to live in their homeland, as their ancestors did for over 43000 years, without forced or coheres deportation to foreign lands. Making them refugees from America. There are so many Human rights violations masked as racism thru the color of the law committed against the Anisazi/Black American people everyday. Ethnic Identity theft from non indigenous people of European decent is one of them, and is a institutionalized and systematic way of life Anisazi Americans and their children have survived through for generations. However the blatant change of Identity from minority to immigrant minority, with complete disregard for the humanity of the indigenous people right to their ethnic identity to Anisazi /American Indian heritage, and the human respect for their God-given right to our children to live in their homeland, should be regarded as serious a crime as the deportation of the Jewish peoples in Germany. There are a lot of crimes being committed against the humanity of all indigenous people around the world. The Anisazi people should not be excluded and remain invisible, allowing the 500 year holocaust they have been struggling thru cripple them into extinction. The Anisazi people are ready to stand for their right to live on this planet in our land called America.

I would like to meet with you while I am in Geneva, attending the WGIP to share the claims with you and discuss how the Human rights commission can register these heritage Claims of Life as documentation for indigenous people to claim there factual ethnic identity and human right not to be classified as a immigrant minority in America, and if time permits discus how FIAAH can be an avenue to document and advocate for safeguards to circumvent the complete extermination of the Indigenous American people from their homeland in America.

I look forward to receiving positive news from you , and prayerfully await the historical meeting with you.

 Working Group on Indigenous Populations

22nd Session

OHCHR-Geneva, Switzerland July 19-23 2004

 

Land: North America, USA

FIAAH Representative; Rev.RaDine Amen-ra

 

One of the goals for FIAAH at international forums is to ensure there is representation and submit documentation concerning collective issues on behalf of the indigenous American Indian people racially identified as black Americans.

 

 

The Working Group on Indigenous Populations, which was established pursuant to Economic and Social Council resolutions 1982/34 is a subsidiary organ of the Sub commission on the promotion and protection of Human Rights under the OHCHR.

The Working Group has a two fold mandate:

  1. to review developments pertaining to the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous peoples.

  2. to give attention to the evolution of International standards concerning indigenous rights.

 

Thematic Issues for 2004: Indigenous peoples and conflict resolution. This year OHCHR invited all relevant organizations and departments of the United Nations system to provide information and if possible participate in the meetings of the Working Group. Experts of the Working group submitted preliminary working papers for discussion and review.

  1. On the principle of free, prior and informed consent of indigenous people in relation to development affecting their lands and natural resources that would serve as a framework for drafting of a legal commentary by the Working Group on this concept.

  2. A working paper to serve as a guideline for the review of the draft principles and guidelines on the heritage of Indigenous people to be undertaken by the Working Group under its agenda item on standard-setting.

FIAAH submitted a legal comment to be reviewed by the sub-commission referring to racial identity theft to indigenous heritage. Indigenous people from around the world rallied behind FIAAH submission for consideration to this important issue. Ethnic identity theft by foreign races is a major issue among indigenous peoples, and creates conflict between indigenous people and Governments allowing non-indigenous people to use the indigenous ethnic identities for making claims to acquire lands belonging to indigenous people away from the indigenous people. Recognizing racial identity belonging to an ethnic heritage is as important to indigenous people. as the ethnic identity itself.

 

At the Working Group it was apparent that many indigenous people of color were victims of racism thru ethnic identity fraud .Racism applied as ethnic identity theft is used as a common practice in America against indigenous Americans by the United States. Example: The factual racial identity for all the indigenous people of American Indian heritage is Negro. In America today people of Irish, Spanish, German, Jewish heritage representing European decent constantly claim the ethnic identity to receive benefits belonging to the Negro race of American Indian people by calling themselves Native Americans..

 

The Indigenous caucus also agreed to this issue being addressed because, there are many indigenous collectives of people in the world being deprived of there representation completely, as a result of the theft of their race ethnic identity by non indigenous peoples. Different lands belong unconditionally to different races of people. Correct racial identity of people belonging to lands should be apart of the International guidelines, to ensure protection against genocide of the people from their lands.

FIAAH submitted on behalf of Indigenous Americans a statement addressing this important issue was.presented by Rev. RaDine Amen-ra under item

5(b) - Review of the draft principles and guidelines on the protection of the heritage of indigenous peoples

Statement by Rev. RaDine A. Harrison Ambassador for the Anisazi Peoples

 

Economic and Social Council

6th session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

 

Special Theme: Item 5 Human Rights- Dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous peoples.

 

Madam Chairperson, distinguished members of the Permanent Forum, delegates, brothers and sisters, and special guest.

 

I come with gratitude and give thanks for the opportunity to address the Permanent Forum on behalf of the Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anasazi Heritage. FIAAH represents Indigenous Americans heritage (women) and our descendants originally called the Anasazi race... We are here to speak up from behind the masking of our existence due to the U.S. efforts to maintain our invisibility in our homeland.

 

It is a hidden but well documented fact from ethnographers George Catlin and James Mason, explorers Desoto and John Smith, as well as the Society of Natural History, the racial identity of the race heritage for All American Indians is Negro, and the Negro/black American peoples actually represent the race of Indigenous Americans living in the U.S.

 

Since the discovery of our homeland , the European immigrants conscious resolve was to make America into their homeland, by committing all forms of Genocide against the Anasazi race and robbed our humanity of all our wealth from our ancestral heritage inheritance to land, knowledge, industry, culture including genetics, ethnic identity, and our inalienable rights from God

 

Our Genocide started from the inquisition of Christian Patriarchy , and is the foundation for the establishment of the United States in North America on lands belonging to the Anasazi peoples living as a matriarchal civilization identified as the Mound builders-- consisting of the Cherokee nation which included over 600 tribes or states, living peacefully in North America since the beginning of time.

 

The U.S government and it’s collective corporations has maintained the conscious resolve towards genocide of the Anasazi heritage and continues to develop covert tactics, policies, and laws, aimed to undermine the viability of the indigenous American peoples and has institutionalized systematic genocide in the form of racism, apartheid, segregation, discrimination, integration, assimilation, slavery, marginalization, multiculturalism, and incarceration just to name a few.

 

In 1812 the U.S Congress legislated an agenda to remove us collectively from our homeland and to colonize the indigenous American peoples in Africa or another land. Implementation of the agenda started with changing our ethnic origins taught in institutions for higher education from American Indian to African, as U.S American history. The distortion of U.S American history forced our children to accept a false identity, and history.

 

Today the covert agenda for the complete extermination and removal of all our people from our homeland is being completed through the Homeland security laws of 2001. All of our collective communities are being removed from all areas including cities, in all the states with in the U.S. The method of systematic removal is through the use of eminent domain laws by cities, states and federal government and once our elders die the confiscation of our inheritance to land is justified thru taxation and NEW County zoning laws. Example the displacement and disappearance of thousands of indigenous American families put in camps after Hurricane Katrina. The US seized the land belonging to the indigenous communities representing a population of over 1 million people living in New Orleans, as we speak they have not been compensated for the home they own, nor have they been allowed to rebuild, participate in the rebuilding of or establish a source of living in New Orleans however new home development is being erected as luxury homes for new immigrants creating a living to live in communities once occupied by indigenous Americans.

 

The process of community displacement has systematically stripped the Anasazi people from being able to transfer there remaining collective wealth to their future generations as well as undermining the Anasazi families ability to sustain stability and security and keeping the collective heritage (women and children) in generational poverty. . These situations are just some of the major collective issues confronting the Anasazi Peoples and our ability to sustain our viability in the U.S. We need help now.

 

. We are here today to request from the Special Rapporteur to investigate the ethnic cleansing of Anasazi/ black American Peoples under U.S occupation.

 

We are asking to report our finding of the Crimes against humanity directly to you for investigation.

 

We also would like to know how indigenous people can implement the international laws, treaties, and fundamental rights to live in our homelands, if this is at all possible?

We are requesting UNEP to look at the effects deforestation is having on the mortality of indigenous Americans.

We are also requesting more dialogue about land /property rights of indigenous peoples with regards to the taxation from the States.

Thank you hearing our concerns Special Rapporteur.

Intervention submitted to the United Nations Seventh Session

for Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

 

 

Thank you madam chair, members of the permanent Forum, States, brothers and sisters.

 

The Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anasazi Heritage represents Indigenous American people born from Anisazi females, ethnically identified as Amerindian women-renamed by the English as American Negro’s since 1706.

 

The Foundation is compelled to clarify the difference between Native Americans for the United States and the race of Indigenous Americans living in the U.S..

 

We find the blatant mis- representation of Indigenous Americans as federally recognized tribes a deceitful maneuver to mislead the International community and cover up the systematic racism and human rights violations being committed against the race of Amerindians living within the U.S.

 

The United States Federal Tribal recognition is based on family groups of people who are descendants of Indigenous American males with non indigenous women. The U.S policy since 1912 towards qualifying for the status of being categorized as Native American is: A person should consist of no more than 16% indigenous blood, a person with a stronger connection to indigenous American heritage are considered Negro/black Americans, this is not the international definition for indigenous persons or collectives.

 

 

Federal recognized tribes represents small minority groups of non-indigenous or multiethnic peoples who the U.S have chosen to be allowed to live- some on reservations and claim the indigenous ancestral American identities and culture. The U.S has used semantics with the English words Native American and American Indians words technically used to represent the indigenous race of Amerindians and has applied indigenous terms to European heritage groups of people the U.S selects, while placing all person born from indigenous females as Negro. Currently the U.S public education policy teaches children from indigenous Amerindian women, they are categorized ethnically as Africans and descendants of immigrant slaves from Africa.

 

The blatant mis-use of the terminology for the ethnic identity “American Indian “being applied to U.S. federally recognized Indian tribes, allows any group of people with the status of “ tribe”, to have the status of federally recognized tribe today and can lose the status to become extinct tomorrow depending on how the U.S chooses to use the lands and resources the federally recognized tribe has been allowed to have stewardship over. The tribe will be subject to the limitations of domestic law solely for the purpose of securing the implementation of the rights and freedoms of corporate interest, which will have president over the general welfare, and privileges promoted as rights granted to the U.S. federally recognized tribe status.

 

In addition, the people born from indigenous American women are automatically naturalized as U.S. citizens and placed under the artificial identity of Negro Americans.

 

Since 1868 the U.S has controlled the land Trust consisting of 700 million acres of land belonging to the Indigenous American race of people from the collective inheritance belonging to the indigenous American Indian women placed under the identity of Negro, known as the Public Land Trust, in effect placed indigenous Americans as domestic dependants/ subjects under U.S. domestic policy and law.

 

As naturalized (subjects ) citizens for the United States, the indigenous American Indians are allowed the privilege to vote, while being denied their basic human rights, and fundamental inherited right to self determination,, self sufficiency, culture, language, spirituality, education, social welfare, family development and relations, land , resources, collective wealth, while the U.S implements policy’s to undermining there collective means to develop and maintain their collective wealth as a way of means to stop their collective poverty.

 

However, a small percentage of American Indians as Negro individuals have attained as public citizens, jobs as positions with the U.S government in local, state and federal agencies, government funded assimilation programs and educational institutions , or as entertainers like Michael Jackson or athletes like Michael Jordon. However, the larger collective of Indigenous Americans live below the minimum standard for survival, dignity, and wellbeing, as the collective condition of life in their homeland America under U.S Jurisdiction.

 

Dr. Martin Luther King made reference to his indigenous American heritage and the frustration of his subjugation from his artificial citizenship with the United States in his historic speech “I have a Dream.” He states:" One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

 

The U.S disingenuous attempts to apply policies towards federally recognized tribes as representing U.S. policies towards Indigenous Americans if accepted by the international community will allow the U.S to maintain the invisibility and domestic subject status the U.S has placed on 36 million Indigenous Americans and eliminate their fundamental human rights under all international declarations, conventions, and resolutions and treaties.

2009 Intervention to the Eight Session on the United Nations

Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

Item 4 –Human Rights

 

Thank you Madam Chair, members of the Permanent Forum, States, brothers and sisters.

 

The Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anasazi Heritage represents Indigenous American people born from Anasazi Females, ethnically identified as Amerindian females-renamed by the English as American Negro’s since 1706.

 

My name is RaDine Harrison, Indigenous American ,Ambassador for FIAAH. I am here to today to discuss the issues of Racism within the PFII towards Amerindian race of people living in the western hemispheres. Amerindians classified as black/Negro race of peoples are the oldest race of people living in the Americas. Over generations of persecution by imperial corporate oligarchies for the planetary land inheritance of the western hemispheres belonging to our race as our home on Earth has taken its toll.

 

Today Amerindian woman and her people(Anasazi) classified as black /Negro American peoples are on the brink of extinction. There are over 400 million indigenous American people still living in the western hemisphere who are not being recognized for their fundamental human or indigenous rights to be respected as a people’s by the nation states occupying our homelands. Millions of indigenous Amerindian women and their generations are dying from the direct impact upon them from Governments that are committing systematic assimilation and genocide against them though policies , laws, education, higher education institutions, social economic degradation, ecocide, genetic altering of indigenous foods, and militarism.

The repression of Amerindian people’s basic natural right to:

  1. Receive human dignity towards our heritage.

  2. Fundamental right to: respect and support our culture without fear of social percussion.

  3. Forced assimilation of women to participate in the genocide of our race thru fear of supporting the viability of our race.

Assimilation into accepting artificial identities, concepts of individualism has crippled our people’s ability to collectively fight our genocide in our homeland.



Year after year I come to the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, and I am dismayed at how Amerindians are discriminated constantly in favor for European/ Asian/Negro mixtures. The discrimination as exclusion denies the Amerindian race of people their respect and human dignity as indigenous people. The stigma / racism of identifying Amerindians as a people who are classified as African”black” Americans keeps them isolated as a race Peoples to this forum. As a result, Indigenous people stigmatized as black/Negro Americans remain invisible and continue to be robbed of their human right to be respected for their indigenous inheritance, culture, and camouflages the systematic war against Amerindian females and her ability to continue her race in America. .

However, it is ignored in western history, how the tremendous impact the contribution stolen from the Amerindian female culture created over Millions of years is the by Amerindian /Negro woman has improved the civilized world quality of life and is the foundation for the wealth of all western Nation States claims today.



It is a well established fact all indigenous people in the world continue to experience colonization and have experience the forced enslavement of their people.

 

Slavery is a egregious crime against the humanity of all peoples, no different than the holocaust was a egregious crime against the humanity of the Jewish Germans.

However, the experience of slavery does not change who the indigenous people are and the planetary inheritance given only to the indigenous females for their particular placement on Earth. .

 

As a Indigenous American female , I am just a voice to remind the artificial world of the truth “ It is the Anasazi Female or Amerindian female or American Negro Woman who hold the planetary inheritance to America , It is the brown skin bushy haired female classified as black/ Negro blood that holds the key, it is our essences, and the nation we create from our wombs who holds the unconditional right to be fruitful and multiply on our home of Earth called AMERICA

.

.Our inheritance was given to us by life itself, ordained by the planet Earth to serve our purpose to the Earth in the Hemisphere renamed America’s. Even though what I say may fall on deaf ears. I stand as a voice for the truth. , The truth of Nature does not change, when the Amerindian Female race no longer exist the land of milk and honey will dry up with her.

 

. Today many Nation States claim Soverenity over the heritage inheritance lands belonging to Amerindian females stigmatized as Negro women. If the Permanent Forum is really about recognizing the rights and empowering indigenous people to overcome the devastating effect from colonialism to their populations and earth homes., then it should recognize the persecution of all indigenous people and stop supporting the camouflage created by the States of indigenous People in the Western hemisphere.

 

Dr. Martin Luther King made reference to his indigenous American heritage and the frustration from his subjugation from his artificial citizenship identity with the United States in his historic speech “I have a Dream.” He states:" One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land.

 

The Permanent Forum attitude of ignoring the RIGHT of the race of Amerindian females and her people to be respected equality as indigenous Peoples, if continued by the indigenous international community will allow the U.S and other western hemisphere corporate governments to maintain the invisibility of the war being waged against the Amerindian race of people to exterminate them from the Earth and the genocide of over 400 million Indigenous Americans as well as eliminate their fundamental human rights under all international declarations, conventions, resolutions and treaties.

 

In this regard, we request from the Special Rapture to explain the international position towards Indigenous Peoples who have been systematically denied of their human rights by colonial States that have redefined them through forced assimilation and

what international office works with NGO’s who are establishing mechanisms to rebuild the foundation for the indigenous people in these lands.

 Update on Bejing 10+ 49th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women

 

FIAAH’s Health Minister, Rev. Denise Hylton participated in the 49th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, February 28th, 2005 to March 11th, 2005. Representing FIAAH, Rev. Hylton was part of a delegation of 60 indigenous women from different parts of the world participating in the follow-up session which reviewed and evaluated the Bejing Declaration and Platform for Action. Rev. Hylton attended the pre-conference strategy meetings sponsored by the Indigenous Women’s Forum February 26th - February 27th, 2005 and was the only indigenous woman from United States who participated. Many indigenous women who attended the previous commissions stated that indigenous women were invisible and had no platform. It was important that indigenous women’s voices were heard during this 49th session of the CSW. The Indigenous Women’s Forum members lobbied the member states to gain support of their resolution and declaration in recognition of the role of indigenous women in the world. Rev. Hylton joined the Media Committee representing indigenous women’s platform to promote the declaration and resolution. Along with indigenous women from Africa, Sweden, and South America, Rev. Hylton was interviewed by the FEM-REEL internet radio program about the Bejing Conference and its impact on Indigenous Women. The Indigenous Women’s Forum lobbying efforts resulted in adoption of a declaration and proposed resolution on indigenous women and girls that was finally adopted at the UN Commission on the Status of Women. The resolution the first on indigenous women at the CSW, highlights their rights and specific needs, including regarding poverty and violence, and was considered a big achievement of the indigenous women’s work.

 

Rev. Hylton also attended several panel discussions including: a) Indigenous and afro-descendant adolescents and young women; b) Discussion on the implementation of the Sisters in Spirit Campaign organized by Native Women’s Association of Canada; c) Rural Women’s Access to Land and Poverty. Other panel discussions held include: Women’s Empowerment in Rural Communities; Women, Peace and Environment. Additionally two press conferences were held sponsored by Madre and the Permanent Forum for Indigenous Peoples. The press conferences highlighted issues of great importance such as trafficking, discrimination and abuse, denial of education and healthcare, loss of land and resources, impact of armed conflict, invisibility in census-taking and its consequences, and loss indigenous cultures, languages and understanding of the environment.

 

Highlights of the 49th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women included when the Rev. Hylton along with several indigenous women received Certificates and Diplomas of Participation in Training on Indigenous Issues from the Secretariat of the UN Permanent Forum for Indigenous Issues and the International Women’s Forum. The a week-long seminar on international issues covered the following topics: UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Millennium Development Goals (MDGs); Special Rapporteurs; Women in Conflict and Post-conflict; Migration, CEDAW, Shadow Reports and Human Rights Complaints procedures, and the 1503 procedure. The trainings aimed to give participants a better understanding of international instruments, UN agencies and successful initiatives that can be used as advocacy tools and strategies at the local and national level. According to Rev. Hylton, “the experience working with indigenous women from throughout the world was of great inspiration. We were able to feel so much solidarity and support for the work FIAAH is doing from indigenous women throughout the world, particularly those from South and Central America”. A copy of the final declaration in attached in this update for your information.

Intervention to the Ninth Session on the United Nations

Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

Item 5-Discussion on North America

Ethnic and Cultrual Identity April 22, 2010

 

U.S Policy’s towards Indigenous Amerindian Peoples.

 

Thank you Madam Chair, members of the Permanent Forum, States, brothers and sisters.

 

My name is RaDine Harrison representative for The Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anasazi Heritage(FIAAH). FIAAH represents Indigenous American people born from Anasazi Women, ethnically identified as American Indian women-renamed by the English as American Negro’s since 1706.

 

The Foundation is compelled to draw attention to the continuation of discriminatory policy’s implemented by the United States that are a grave violation of the basic rights of Article 2 and 33 against the race of Indigenous Americans living in the U.S.. The United States 2010 Census does not have a category for indigenous Americans to represent themselves on the United States Census, and are classifying indigenous Americans who identify and respect the ethnic heritage to identify their ethnicity for themselves as African immigrants’ instead of indigenous people. This covert tactic and policy keeps invisible the Nation of Amerindian people still surviving in the Us invisible. Federally recognized tribes according to the US policy is the only population that will be respected for their ethnic right to identity on the census. This policy also keeps the correct population count remaining in the United States open for all forms of systematic manipulation and continue the persecution of Amerindian woman and their ability to sustain their collective viability in their arth inheritance homeland.

We find the blatant miss- representation of Indigenous Americans as federally recognized tribes a deceitful maneuver to mislead the International Community and cover up the Policies that implement systematic racism and commit human rights violations against the race of Indigenous Americans living within the U.S.

The United States Federal Tribal recognition is based on family groups of people who are descendants of Indigenous American men with non indigenous women. The U.S policy since 1906 for the status of Native American is: a person should consist of no more than 16% indigenous blood, a person with a stronger connection to indigenous American heritage are considered Negro/black Americans, this is not the international definition for indigenous persons or collectives.

Federal recognized tribes represents small minority groups of non-indigenous or multiethnic peoples who the U.S have chosen to be allowed to live- some on reservations and claim the indigenous ancestral American identities and culture. Currently the U.S higher public education policy instructs adults and children from indigenous American women, they should ignore their indigenous ethnic heritage from their mothers and grandmothers and should consider the US politically correct classification as African Americans.. The Political identity given to indigenous Amerindian people is not the ethnic identity of a people. Denying a people a way to recognize their ethnic identity is a blatant violation of the fundamental rights of all people in the world..

The blatant mis-use of the terminology for the ethnic identity “American Indian “being applied to U.S. federally recognized Indian tribes, allows any group of people with the status of “ tribe”, to have the status of federally recognized tribe today and can lose the status to become extinct tomorrow depending on how the U.S chooses to use the lands and resources the federally recognized tribe has been allowed to have stewardship over. The tribe will be subject to the limitations of domestic law solely for the purpose of securing the implementation of the rights and freedoms of corporate interest, which will have president over the general welfare, and privileges promoted as rights granted to the U.S. federally recognized tribe status.

In addition, the people born from indigenous American women are automatically/ forced to be naturalized as U.S. citizens if a women does not accept, the naturalization of their children the children will be taken away from them and put in US custody

Since 1868 the U.S has controlled the land Trust consisting of 700 million acres of land belonging to the Indigenous American race of people from the collective inheritance belonging to the indigenous American Indian women placed under the identity of Negro, known as the Public Land Trust, in effect placed indigenous Americans as domestic dependants/ subjects under U.S. domestic policy and law.

As naturalized (subjects ) citizens for the United States, the indigenous American Indians are allowed the privilege to vote, while being denied their basic human rights, and fundamental inherited right to self determination,, self sufficiency, culture, language, spirituality, education, social welfare, family development and relations, land , resources, collective wealth, while the U.S implements policy’s to undermining there collective means to develop and maintain their collective wealth as a way of means to stop their collective genocide and poverty.

Dr. Martin Luther King made reference to his indigenous American heritage and the frustration of his subjugation from his artificial citizenship with the United States in his historic speech “I have a Dream.” He states:" One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition. Forty years later after Dr. Kings death , indigenous people labeled Negro are now being classified as African People. A political position is now being made a ethnic identity. Amerindians are now considered immigrants to America and the United States.

The U.S disingenuous attempts to promote U.S. policies towards federally recognized tribes as representing U.S. policies towards Indigenous Americans if accepted by the international community will allow the U.S to maintain the invisibility and domestic subject status the U.S has placed on 36 million Indigenous Americans and eliminate their fundamental human rights under all international declarations, conventions, resolutions and treaties.

The declaration professes to recognize inherit rights which are the foundation for human rights. In this regard, W hat mechanisms are available to indigenous peoples from the international community to help indigenous peoples combat the discrimination against them from the state for their fundamental rights.

                             U.S Policies towards Indigenous American Peoples.

 

Thank you Madam Chair, members of the Permanent Forum, States, brothers and sisters. 

 

I am Representative RaDine Harrison, Jennings Speaking 

 

 On behalf of The Foundation for Indigenous Americans of Anasazi Heritage (FIAAH). Institute for Indigenous American Studies, and the American Heritage Registry. WE (collectively)  represents Indigenous American or Anisazi people born from Anisazi females, ethnically identified as Amerindian people colonially-renamed as American Negro’s since 1705.

 

I come with gratitude and give thanks for the work of the UNPFII. Since 2004 our foundation has worked very diligently to implement the major objectives of the UNPFII with our collective population residing in the US and Central America. I would like to thank the representative for Guatemala for recognizing the Garifuna peoples in their efforts towards working with Indigenous Americans. 

 

 Today we are compelled to draw attention to UNPII the continuation of discriminatory policy’s implemented by the United States against the remaining race of Indigenous Americans living in the U.S. that are a grave violation of the basic Human Rights afforded to all people and undermines the implementation of Article 2 and 33in the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

 

 The United States 2020 Census will not have a category for descendants from indigenous American females ‘Anisazi” aka Negro Americans to represent themselves on the United States Census as in the past. Replacing the Ethnic identity for Indigenous American female descendant population with African American will assimilate indigenous ethnic Americans into “ethnic African” immigrants.’ 

 

The Anisazi population of people in the US have had different artificial identities placed upon them over the generations by the United States, first Amerindians, our males renamed American Indians, and our females renamed Negro. Second, in the 1800’s our race was re-named from American Indian to Negro, and now our generational political identity of Negro for Anisazi people born from Anasazi females is out of the census. Again erasing “our” legitimate existence of the Negro ethnicity from federal and state records as of 2020 and forcing the new descendants for the Anisazi race of people, legally, into a tenuous, liminal space.

 

This covert tactic and policy keeps invisible the indigenous race population of Anisazi people still thriving or just surviving in their home on Earth  used by the United States as a mew homeland.. 

 

This policy also keeps the correct population count remaining in the United States open for all forms of systematic manipulation and allows the continuation of the persecution of Anisazi females’ ability to reproduce and sustain their collective viability in their home on Earth inheritance to America. 

 

Since the 1868 treaty after the civil war that led to the creation of the United States of America, the U.S has controlled the collective Earth Inheritance, known as the Public Land Trust consisting of 770 million acres belonging to the indigenous American females placed under the identity of Negro. 

 

In addition, As  naturalized citizens with the United States, for the claim over the Anisazi female Earth inheritance of America, the  indigenous American People as Negro  are allowed the civil privilege to vote, while being denied and undermined thru integration their basic human rights, fundamental inherited right  to self-determination, self- sufficiency, culture, language, spirituality, education, social welfare, family development and relations, and natural resources, as  collective wealth, to develop and maintain a way of means to  stop their collective genocide and poverty.

Dr. Martin Luther King jr. reference in his historic 1964 speech “I have a Dream.” He states:" One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.  Fifty years later after Dr. King’s death, Anisazi / Negro Peoples still languished in the corners of American society and finds themselves in exile in their own home on Earth…. So we have come here today to the UNPFII to dramatize a shameful condition  

The unfortunate reality is that, while the United States census is an orderly affair, it is also a subtly weaponized bureaucratic tool. Removing a indigenous/political ethnic identity for a race population of people from the census allows the government to perpetuate their relentless campaign to Ethnically cleanse the indigenous American female population of Anisazi People, aka Negro People without publicly lifting a gun.

In this regard: 

 U.S. policies towards Indigenous Americans if accepted by the international community will allow the U.S to maintain the invisibility and ethnically cleanse 36 million Indigenous Americans and eliminate their fundamental human rights under all international declarations, conventions,  resolutions and treaties. 

The Declaration on the rights of Indigenous peoples professes to recognize inherit rights which are the foundation for human and fundamental rights.  

We also request to work with the Human Rights committee to help develop for  Anisazi and all indigenous peoples ways to receive concrete and appropriate actions to realize the commitment underlined in paragraph 37 of the WCIP OUTCOME document” to giving due consideration to all the rights of indigenous peoples in the elaboration of the post 2015 development agenda, and In view of paragraph 28 Outcome document .We request the assistance of the expert mechanisms on the rights of Indigenous peoples to provide assistance to our peoples.

Dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous Peoples &

Chair of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Item 10- Human Rights

 

Thank you Madam Chair, members of the Permanent Forum, States, brothers and sisters.

 

I am Representative RaDine America  Harrison, Speaking

 On behalf of The Foundation for Indigenous America of Anisazi Heritage (FIAAH). Institute for Indigenous America Studies, and the America Heritage Registry.     We are here today as human right defenders for the Earth peoples of America. It is a hidden but not forgotten fact;

America is the home with Earth, for the people created by the Earth, who look like the Earth and carry its blood for America. America is the home of an ancient race of Earth peoples who have nurtured our life as America since the beginning of time.

Many people curse America as representation of the United States, but America, her people and her soil like many other nations of indigenous populations are living  under occupation by A political Nation-State.

 We are here to clarify, The United States is not America.

The United States is established on the Earth inheritance belonging to the collective population of indigenous females that created America.

America is Not the United States, We are Not Americans or the political names applied to us.

We the females of America, with the blood of the ancient ones, stand in our Earthly right as America,  are here to say- to all of our Cousins of Earth, who like Us carry the blood of the Earth.  WE the females of America have not forgotten our purpose to life with Earth, and ask forgiveness for all the horrible crimes that           have and still are being committed in our Name of America.

 We do not support the destruction of the waters, air or sea. We do not support the draining of the life blood of our planet Earth as oil, or the extermination of the planets forest , and the extraction of its minerals.

 We as America are making clear. We love America,.

Over the recent generations, our focus has had to change from nurturing our life with America to surviving from all forms of constant attacks leading to genocide, against America’s race of peoples from the United States polices for the extermination of our population from our Soil. The United States has compounded  the human rights violations  by passing new  policy &laws (FRDOC-2015-12140 and HR.4238) to remove our ability to politically implement our human rights, UNDRIP,ILO69  and other international instruments for redress. 

The children of America are not immigrants or refugee to America.

We  understand we hold the key to the emotions needed to create the solutions to the many complex challenges that we face.

In this regard,  we sent a formal request on March 28th, 2017 to the office of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous Peoples for assistance with recommendations for the negotiations with the United States for implementation of the UNDRIP article 5 and  would like to meet with her while we are in New York . .We are also  requesting the assistance of the expert mechanisms on the rights of Indigenous peoples to provide assistance to our peoples institution F.I.A.A.H. in finding a political remedy for the indigenous people with America   to  be recognized as a racial category  living with America and within the United States.

We also request to work with the Human Rights committee to help develop for Anisazi and all indigenous peoples of America’s heritage for developing ways to receive concrete and appropriate actions that safe guard their rights with their Political governments

    Thank you for your consideration…… F.I.A.A.H.
