Raven visits with Robert Satiacum about American Indian Lobby Day 2012 1-29-2012 5pm

Robert Satiacum is an enrolled member of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians. He is the son of the late Chief Bob Satiacum – widely known for his sacrifices made for sovereignty and fishing rights. Satiacum is immersed his native culture, and diligently practices the traditions of the Sweat Lodge, Native American Church, and the annual Tribal Journeys in his family canoe.

Save the date!
We reserved the big room on the ground floor of the Legislative building and will make appointments for participants to meet with their legislators. Drumming in the Rotunda and on the steps of the Legislative Building are scheduled! Check back with us for details.

This Lobby Day is new, just going on it’s 2nd year, but especially important for tribal members of Washington State to solidify, and protect the rights our ancestors reserved for us, it is OUR Responsibility. We will come together at exactly the right time, with exactly the right people, doing exactly the right thing, in exactly the right place. There are Indian bills that need to be supported and testified to, and Indian bills that need to be extinguished and testified against. Our ‘Ancestors’ reserved the rights, our rights when they ceded the millions of acres full of the evergreens, and if we don’t get and be responsible, what little is left can be gone for mine, yours, and our children and our children’s children. They literally fought tooth and nail for what we have, and are observing us through the air, the water, the fire and the landscapes, waiting in anticipation for their descendants to pray, communicate, council once again together, for our sources and the future we will leave behind. We have the tools, our hearts, minds and voices, join us, this is the time! -Robert Ti Swaq Satiacum

“As Long As The Rivers Run” — Film and panel discussion

By Steve Robinson

The South Sound Environmental Clearinghouse (SPEECH) will proudly conduct a special film and panel discussion event on Wednesday, December 1,at Traditions Café, 300 5th Ave SW, Olympia, beginning at 6:30 p.m. In honor of our Native American neighbors, the event will feature a showing of the historic movie, “As Long As The Rivers Run,” produced by filmmaker Carol Burns, and a panel of individuals, emceed by Steve Robinson, commenting about the significance of this film to the South Sound area and beyond.

“As Long As The Rivers Run” was filmed during the tumultuous 1960s and 70s, when Native Americans were fighting for their rights, as guaranteed in the treaties in which they relinquished millions of acres of land, enabling Washington to become a state. It is a part of the history of this region that brought national and international attention, and created changes that affected relationships forever.
