Other Blogs on or by Indigenous Peoples' Issues

There are thousands of blogs out there, and everyday a bunch more show up. Well, I thought it would be helpful to list a couple that I know of that are either written by indigenous peoples or deal with some component of indigenous peoples issues. The list is by no means complete. If I'm missing one that you think should be included, just comment and I will up date the list. Together we can make this a great human-edited list on blogs relevant for indigenous peoples.

Great service you provide.
Thanks for Link to Mr. Peltier's letter.

I recently found the RedNationSociety.com and the Yahoo Indigenous Peoples group feed very worthwhile.

Also volunteer for two other related non-profits - Earth Keeper Initiative and the Manoomin Project - both involving American Indian tribes (and many others) and environment work.

Good information. As you mention, the digital age allows us more opportunity to connect.
A shorter, more in-depth list might be even more interesting, if it was a recurring item. Kind of like the Top 10 Indigenous blogs of the week (and 'why?'). I'd be interested to help out with this type of thing, should you be interested.
Keep up the good work and please keep in contact.

Thats a great idea, I just don't know how to list the blogs without some ranking system, which I'm not really in favor of. Right now I'm just keeping the list, but if you think of a way, let me know.

RedNationSociety.Com seems to be down, for last few weeks. Permanently (?), not known.

I'd like to offer my own blog for inclusion in your list; Native Art and Bingorage, at



Peter N. Jones said...


I've added your blog to the list. Looks interesting, keep it up. I also checked out RedNationSociety.com. It does seem to be down, although some of the internal pages are still live.



Greg Peterson said...

I too have been unable to reach the Red Nation Society pages

Hugo Blanco has a blogspot here

He founded Lucha Indigena and is my view of the most important political activists on the planet.

He led an indigenous rebellion in Peru in 1962, he is a key supporter of the Ecosocialist International Network and aged over 70 is still very active.

He is an absolute inspiration in my view...I may be biased!

Greg Peterson said...

To Mr. Derek Wall,

I checked out Hugo Blanco blog and your profile.

And while you may be "biased" - you are also very correct.

The world's nations would be in an even worse spot if there were not activists like Mr. Blanco.

Solely because of 9-11, I am an American who supported a lot of George Bush's anti-terror efforts.

I voted for our incoming president and I hope he puts America on a friendlier stance with rest of globe.

Tho I fear (and believe) Al-Qaeda is on the verge of a major attack in both our countries (U.K. & U.S.) like a dirty bomb or mass transit plot.

BUT - ALL THIS MEANS NOTHING - if we humans don't do more to respect our planet and each other.

Imagine what we could do if the U.S. pumped the same billions into green activities as we do on war and most recently the shameless CEOs in the banking, mortgage, credit card and automotive industries.

I pray that you and Mr. Blanco continue you good works in opposite sides of the ocean.

friendly fyi - I am a Michigan news reporter and volunteer media advisor for numerous interfaith, youth and Native American related environment projects including:
The Earth Keeper Initiative, The Turtle Island Project The Earth Healing Initiative, the Manoomin Project and most recently the Zaagkii Wings and Seeds Project.

All are easy to find with keyword searches.
