AIWA Meeting Report: February 2, 2011

Attending officers are: Joaquin Sandoval, AIWA Treasurer- Event Coordinator and Roy Cook, AIWA Secretary.

Barbara Pepi, VA La Jolla reported that the Hospital has appointed a person to assist in gathering military memories of WW II and Korean War veterans. These stories will be archived in the Library of Congress and will be accessible from the internet. We will report further on the process steps in a later report. She had some good ‘pan duce’ and current La Jolla VA health center information and neat pens to give out too.

The Cookie monster also brought a selection of the freshest cookies that the Home Town Buffet has to offer. RC also shared his views of the United Veterans Council meeting and his continuing monitoring of the published living history of the Middle East areas of operation wounded and fallen in battle warriors. Further, he reported on a new book of the death of the Lakota shirt wearer Crazy Horse at Fort Robinson while under the protection of the United States military.

Historically, our Warriors have been involved in defending this land since the inception of this USA nation. Review and discuss these significant February dates in American Indian and western civilization history.

February 1690: "The beginning of King William's War as hostilities in Europe between the French and English spill over to the colonies. In February, Schenectady, New York is burned by the French with the aid of their Native American allies." Source: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-timeline.html

February 8, 1809: "On February 8, Russians who built a blockhouse on the Hoh River (Olympic Penninsula, Washington) were taken captive by Hoh Indians, and were held as slaves for two years." Source: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-timeline2.html
This is interesting because there is a prevaling anthropological thought that the Russians had a greater respect and understanding of the Tribes in the Pacific Northwest because of their "business" or trading relationships; however, this incident indicates otherwise.

February 13, 1861: "On February 13, the first military action to result in the Congressional Medal of Honor occurred. Colonel Bernard Irwin attacked and defeated hostile Chiricahua Indians in Arizona." Source: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-timeline3.html

February 18, 1861: "On February 18, Arapaho and Cheyenne ceded most of eastern Colorado, which had been guaranteed to them forever in an 1851 treaty." Source: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-timeline3.html

February 28, 1877: "The U.S. Government seized the Black Hills from Lakota Sioux in violation of a treaty." Source: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-timeline5.html

·1828

February 21, 1828—The first newspaper in a Native American language, the Cherokee Phoenix, was published in New Echota, Georgia. The publication, which remains in existence today, was part of a wider movement among the five Southern or “Civilized” Tribes (Cherokees, Choctaws, Chicasaws, Creeks, and Seminoles) toward white cultural patterns, including raising large cash crops on plantations and modeling their tribal government after the federal system.

Feb 27, 1973 - The second incident started on February 27, 1973, when armed supporters of the American Indian Movement (AIM) seized and held Wounded Knee, demanding a US Senate investigation of Native American problems.
