UITCT would like to honor our Native women, and all women from all over the world, on International Women’s Day.

From the beginning of time until present day, Native women have shown remarkable resilience. Native women have proven their social, economic, cultural and political prowess. UITCT acknowledges their achievements, recognizes their challenges, and stands by women's rights and gender equality.

"Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow!"

Relations,

As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, President Biden and Vice President Harris worked with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to create the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides eligible households $30 per month off their internet bills. To deliver maximum cost savings to families, the Biden-Harris Administration has secured commitments from 20 leading internet providers to offer ACP-eligible households a high-speed internet plan for no more than $30 per month. Eligible families who pair their ACP benefit with one of these plans can receive high-speed internet at no cost.

Facts: More than 30 tribes served as Code Talkers.

Despite not becoming US citizens until June 2, 1924, the first reported use of Native Americans as code talkers was on October 17, 1918 during World War I, nearly 24 years after the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

Tribes serving as code talkers during both the Pacific and European campaigns included Comanche, Cheyenne, Cherokee, Osage, Lakota, Dakota, Chippewa, Oneida, Sac and Fox, Meskwaki, Hopi, Assiniboine, Kiowa, Pawnee, Akwesasne, Menominee, Creek, Cree Seminole Tribes and other unlisted tribes. In World War II, additional tribes aided in the code talker efforts, including Oglala Sioux Tribe, Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe, and Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe.

“Our collective efforts to reclaim our voice and our power were driven by our shared commitment to combating the invisibilization of Urban Native people -- one of the most under-represented and under-resourced populations in America. Despite making up over 70 percent of the total AI/AN population, our urban Native communities have traditionally been excluded from conversations, decisions, and outreach efforts that lead to resource allocation and policy decisions. The Democracy is Indigenous; Reclaiming our Voice, Reclaiming Our Power report, is a living testament of our shared commitment to organizing our communities, building electoral power, and transforming an incomplete narrative that does not include all our urban Indian people.”

A word from MMIW Texas Rematriate.

May 5th, 2022 is National Day of MMIW Awareness.

Awareness is an important step in combating the MMIW crisis. Educating the public helps to fill gaps where resources are lacking.

Join us May 5 at the following locations:

1) City Hall (in the Flag Room) at 130pm for a reading of the Proclamation declaring May 5th MMIW Awareness Day in the City of Dallas. Wear Red and bring your hand drums.

2) Artstillery (723 Ft. Worth Ave, Dallas 75208) at 7pm for the opening ceremony of SUPPORTING INDIGENOUS SISTERS: An International Print Exhibition. We will have prayer, song, round dance, food, and be able to view all of the prints.

Maybe you can not make those times or crowds are not your thing at the moment. Please take a step outside to view the Dallas skyline turn RED in solidarity with the awareness raising efforts across the city.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU OUT TOMORROW.
