The Center's Policy Director Dina Gilio-Whitaker and Professor Emerita of Ethnic Studies at California State University, Hayward Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz have written a wonderful book, "All the Real Indians Died Off": And 20 Other Myths About Native Americans release by Beacon Press. The works to retire the favored historical inaccuracies perpetuated in often bigoted stories by people outside of Indian Country. The book has been widely noticed by thoughtful journalists not the least of which is Mark Trecka writing "Waking from the John Wayne dream: Columbus and Jackson are dead, but America’s war against indigenous people lives on" in Salon. Good Read says All the Real Indians Died Off "challenge[s] readers to rethink what they have been taught about Native American history." Alternet's contribution to this growing interest is to reveal some of the book's content: http://www.alternet.org/books/persistent-myth-about-native-americans-needs-debunking This report emphasizes that narratives such as those described in the Gilio-Whitaker/Ortiz book "reinforce a contrived sense of unity" among immigrants who took land originally occupied by millions of indigenous peoples in the Americas. This book will stand on its own for generations.This Persistent Myth About Native Americans Needs Debunking

Posted on Sep 17, 2016 9:57pm via Facebook: There are more than 48.5 million men, women and children according the Mederoo Foundation (Australia, UK and India) Global Slavery Index published in 2016. Twenty eight million of those now enslaved are located in India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Uzbekistan. At the Center for World Indigenous Studies we estimate that fully 80% (38.8 Million) of these people are indigenous peoples--the most vulnerable populations to slavery in the world. The Global Slavery Index measured populations in 167 countries and found four broad areas of vulnerability: populations and groups lacking civil and political protection, social health and economic rights, personal security and populations affected as refugee populations and violent conflicts.
There is one more domain where enforced slavery occurs affecting indigenous peoples and other populations: Prisons...particularly commercialized, for-profit prisons. The United States of America imprisons its citizens at the highest rate of any country in the world at 698 per 100,000 citizens (more than 2.164 million people). To emphasize their slavery status, 20,000 and more prisoners have gone on strike from working and some are refusing to eat to protest their slavery status.
