The Voices of Indigenous Peoples in 2007: Resistance and censorship

Appointed Sinixt spokesperson Marilyn James reads from Brenda Norrell's "Most Censored award to Indigenous Peoples," first published on the Narcosphere, September 5, 2007.

Commenting on the well-known Project Censored list, Norrell says that "most of what was censored in Indian country was ignored." She draws the list of six "most censored stories" from readers of her blog.

They are

  • Silencing of traditional and grassroots' voices by those in power
  • Nuclear, uranium and coal genocide of Indigenous
  • Border deaths and abuse of Indigenous; racism in border news reporting
  • American Indian delegations in Venezuela
  • Zapatistas' meetings at US/Mexico border
  • Leonard Peltier
