  1. Kwik'pak's Yup'ik Fisherman Donate Fish Sales to Katrina Relief 

    They're cash poor, but Alaska's Yup'ik Eskimo communities are known for their coveted Kwik'pak Yukon River King and Keta salmon that they catch for subsistence and commercial use. That's why these native Alaskans are using the only substantial resource they have to help people in a place they'll probably never visit: the southern states devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

 Native American Women Warriors: A Talk by Priscilla Piestewa !

“The first American woman killed in Iraq was Pfc. Lori Ann Piestewa. She is American Indian and one of eight soldiers found during the rescue of POW Jessica Lynch, who was Lori's room mate at Ft. Bliss, El Paso , Texas. Lori was 23 years of age the mother of a four year old son and a three year old daughter. She lived in Tuba City, Arizona and was a member of the Hopi Nation. There are currently 56 Hopis serving in the Us military. 48 are in Iraq. Lori is believed to be the first American Indian woman ever to be killed in combat for the United States military. There is great sadness and pride in the land of her ancestors.
On the day that Lori's death was confirmed by the Army a light snow fell in Tuba City, her hometown. According to Hopi beliefs, the soul of a person who has led a good and honorable life returns to Hopi land in the form of precipitation. In Hopi, Piestewa is defined as the rainwater that collects on the desert floor after a heavy downpour.
Lori Piestewa came home that day
During the powwow, Priscilla Piestewa, a Mexican-American and mother of Lori Piestewa, the first American Indian killed in the Iraq War, is scheduled to talk about American Indian women warriors on Thursday and Saturday...Standard Examiner Aug. 26, 2005
Mrs. Priscilla Piestewa is a small woman but her dignity filled the room making her larger than life.  Speaking with a calm firm voice she spoke of the role a woman has in the Native American community and how over the years that role has changed and expanded. Recalling the death of her daughter and her daughters choice to become a warrior for her people, and the way their lives changed because of that decision.  Talking of the inspiration that Lori had become to many young women - opening avenues for them that most had shunned or not thought of she had opened a new chapeter in Hopi life.  The Hopi are a peaceful people throughout the centuries so the role of warrior does not often enter into daily life.  She told how the family had journeyed into an area of unknown what with the death, the move, the new house and the children’s readjustment.  She spoke of beauty, and how her daughter would of rejoiced in life as it is now, but knowing that if her daughter lived things would not be like it is...life is a double edge sword, so one must always take the good with the bad. 
She spoke of  women throughout the ages that have lead the way showing a Nation how to deal with tragedy through dignity and beauty.  Death is something we have all had to face or will have to face in our lifetime, it is necessary but at the same time devastating.  If we can grow and become a better person or a stronger person the we can heal and by showing these women as examples perhaps we can help a nation to heal.

"Priscilla Piestewa of Tuba City, Ariz., has been selected as a grant recipient of the Fallen Patriot Fund, established on April 16 by the Mark Cuban Foundation, to help families of U.S. military personnel who were killed or seriously injured during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Piestewa will receive $15,000 from the Fund to assist with living expenses and raising her grandchildren Brandon Whiterock, 5, and Carla Piestewa, 3, after her daughter, PFC Lori Ann Piestewa, 23, was killed in An Nasariyah, Iraq, on March 23. PFC Piestewa was the first Native American (Hopi) to be killed in action in United States history"

Discrimination is a hurtle all races from Whites to Blacks from Mexican to American Indians, but most of discrimination comes out of  ignorance, not cruelty.   When it comes from cruelty then we as a nation are beyond hope...Editorial by jami akers
