Louis Fowler’s Pandemic Journal: Today is Not a Good Day to Die

Recently, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams asked Blacks and Latinos to refrain from “alcohol, tobacco and drugs” during the pandemic. As this virus has a vicious predisposition to attack minorities, it seems almost racially conspiratorial against us at times, but do I want to say that out loud and risk the negative publicity?

Sure.

One group of people that seems to be forgotten in all this however are the Indigenous. With many living on reservations that were suffering from a desperate lack of funds to begin with, tribes like the Navajo has seen such a spike in Coronavirus cases that the even Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico is fearful that the virus could “wipe out” entire tribes.

There has been an absolute absence of testing kits, protective health gear and cleaning supplies for tribes around the country, some affected more than others. I guess in a time of crisis, people that are doing bad do even worse, and who does worse than Natives?

Trump isn’t letting this crisis go to waste, stealing Indian lands from various tribes at a time when they are dealing with the sick and suffering—hand us come Covid-infected blankets so we’ll be at home. I sure hope that Stitt isn’t going to try to impress his true Godhead and use this to attack the Indigenous people of this state in his continuing war against them. But he probably will.

Remember, brothers and sisters: right now, the most revolutionary thing we can do is stay alive, if only to fight another day. To paraphrase the typically-misattributed Native adage, today is not a good day to die.

Thank God for phở. The Vietnamese soup has been the ultimate life-restorer for me recently, pretty much the only thing I can keep down. I’ve ordered it a few days this week from the much-loved Phở Cuòng, a place I’ve written about a few times here.

It’s the place I always seem to run to in times of sickness and health.

As I waited for my order the other day, I spoke to the woman that runs the place, asking her how business was. Welling up with a few tears, she told me that it’s been “not so good” since the virus, mostly because people aren’t eating out as much.

When “upstanding” citizens are quick to blame Asians for the Coronavirus—some even resorting to violence to prove their flaccid point—it’s up to good people like you and me to help support their businesses, especially those that have provided us with nourishment for so many years.

I don’t want to lose Phở Cuòng in all of this.

  1. Hey pal, tried to call you yesterday. Obviously I don’t want to endanger you by coming to see you, but I want to let you know I’d be happy to do a weekend lunch delivery to you, my treat*. I miss ya and I’m rooting for you.

  2. Louis, I always appreciate your writing, and I agree Native populations, especially those not in Oklahoma that live on “true” reservations are suffering. They were suffering before, but even more so. Will share this with the Native journalist and lawyers that I follow (as I am a Native Lawyer) as the store must be told. Also, love “cover covered blanket”. Nice, but true.


  3. My take on it is that most of us non-indigenous people think the tribes are drowning in money from casinos and oil, and thus able to take care of themselves. Granted, there are some who have done very well. Most however have not and are struggling to survive, even without this plague. It is the federal government’s responsibility to take care of these folks but it has woefully failed. Like it has in so many other things. Shame on us all.


  4. I was starting to get worried about when Louis is going to resume his Trump-bashing. Didn’t disappoint one bit. A solid 7 on the TDS scale. Let’s just say that story about the reservation status is pretty murky. Appears they are more concerned about building a billion dollar casino than the act of land-taking itself:

    https://apnews.com/764250dab3aaf06c76ee7d25148077cd

    “BOSTON (AP) — A federal appeals court has ruled against a Native American tribe that had been granted sovereign land to build a casino in Massachusetts.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston on Thursday upheld a lower court decision declaring the federal government had not been authorized to take land into trust for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe in 2015.

    The lower court ruled the tribe didn’t qualify because it wasn’t officially recognized in 1934, when the federal Indian Reorganization Act became law.

    The Cape Cod-based tribe, which traces its ancestry to the Native Americans that shared a fall harvest meal with the Pilgrims in 1621, gained federal recognition in 2007.”

    “Casino opponents, who had filed the original lawsuit challenging the land decision, said the latest ruling is further vindication for them.

    Their lawyer said in a statement that the justices correctly interpreted federal law “as written” and “without favor or bias.”

    The case was a largely semantic debate centered on whether the tribe could be considered “Indian” under the 1934 federal law, which created the process for taking lands into trust for tribes, among other things.

    The casino opponents argued the law clearly defined Indians as “all persons who are descendants of such members who were, on June 1, 1934, residing within the present boundaries of any Indian reservation.”

    But the tribe argued the phrase “such members” made the definition ambiguous and open to other interpretations.

    The appeals judges, like the lower court, rejected that argument.

    Cromwell said the tribe will continue to press Congress to approve legislation pending in the Republican-controlled Senate that would protect its reservation, regardless of what the courts decide.

    The Democrat-led House has passed the measure, but President Donald Trump has asked Republicans to reject it. Trump called it a “special-interest casino bill” backed by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of his potential Democratic presidential rivals.”

    https://time.com/5812813/mashpee-wampanoag-revoking-reservation-status/

    “The U.S. Department of the Interior, which oversees Native American affairs, is obligated by a recent federal court decision to remove the special land designations, which were bestowed in 2015 under then-President Barack Obama, according to Conner Swanson, an agency spokesman.

    In February, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston upheld a lower court decision declaring the federal government had not been authorized to take land into trust for the Cape Cod-based tribe, which traces its ancestry to the Native Americans that shared a fall harvest meal with the Pilgrims in 1621.

    The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe declined to challenge that decision, but Cromwell argues a separate lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., is still pending.”

    “But the decision, if allowed to stand, would destroy much of what the tribe has worked to build in recent years on its sovereign lands, Cromwell said.

    That includes establishing an independent judicial system, police force and Wampanoag-language school, as well as beginning construction on a roughly 50-unit tribal housing development and breaking ground on a $1 billion resort casino.”


    1. please, pay attention sparky. gop and trump most definitely using this crisis to enrich and press their extremist dream agenda while Americans are distracted. The relief bill had a loophole that is allowing millionaires to shovel ave. of 1.7 million to them. gosh I hardly know how to spend all that $1,200. Now the crooks are scheming privatizing the USPS they’ve long dreamed, orange menace refusing to provide a life preserver you know like he wants to shovel to industries like cruise ships that fly under foreign flags to avoid paying taxes and labor laws, but hey the gop thanks you for the support and they’ll continue to shovel huge piles of cash to millionaires and billionaires while working tirelessly to ensure working people aren’t paid a living wage and access to health care is a impossible dream.


      1. No reason to not believe but I would like to read another source concerning the loophole that allows millionaires to shovel ave. of 1.7 million to them.


        1. Chuck Grassley blamed democrats for not noticing the arcane provision in the bill in their rush to you know help desperate people, no doubt inserted by the soulless grifter sec of treasury. gop mantra never let a crisis go to waste.


        2. https://www.forbes.com/sites/shaharziv/2020/04/14/why-are-rich-americans-getting-17-million-stimulus-checks/


    2. Bless your heart. You learned how to use Google. Next lets get a hold of LeVar Burton and ask him to Reading Rainbow you up some reading comprehension.

      Of course the Mashpee Wampanoag are concerned about the casino. They are building up infrastructure for their people. It literally says that in the very last 2 paragraphs that you copy/pasted (that you conveniently ignored). That income has to come from somewhere. Gaming is one of the only lucrative income streams unique to the tribes due to their status as sovereign nations. They’d be daft if they weren’t worried about the casino.

      Fun Fact: trump opposed the Mashpee Wampanoag casino, concerned it would interfere with his friends business interests in casinos nearby. It was going forward anyway but magically their land got taken back. Coincidences like that happen when you’re a president only interested lining yours and your friends pockets while actively disliking Natives.

      Make no mistake, this is a targeted assault because of casinos and racism. One of trumps first acts as president was to move a portrait of Andree Jackson, the architect of Native genocide, into the Oval Office. He took a special trip to visit Jackson’s grave on what would have been his 250th birthday, saluting, laying a wreath, and calling Jackson “the people’s president”, forgetting, I guess, that Natives are people and we aren’t weaving Jackson a friendship bracelet anytime soon.

      He even once argued that certain tribes didn’t deserve to run casinos because “they don’t look Indian”. Because a fair barometer of what people can and cannot do is their skin color and facial characteristics. Right.
      https://www.nbcnews.com/dateline/video/trump-in-1993-they-don-t-look-indian-716425283908

      And, selective link sharer, the Mashpee Wampanoag are not the only tribe struggling for their lands. Back in 2018 the trump Department of the Interior ceased all attempts for Alaskan tribes to have their lands put into trust, deciding that a legal opinion that had been used for that very purpose didn’t suit them so they decided to just ignore it. (Look. I can copy and paste links too! https://www.indianz.com/News/2020/03/10/trump-administration-charges-course-with.asp). This effects every single tribal nation. All 573 of the federally recognized tribe. All their land.

      None of this would even be an issue if the US government would simply honor the treaties that Andrew Jackson sought. Those treaties, over 500 of them, outline what the tribes were to receive for being targeted for extinction because Americans wanted back yards and neighbors with no melanin. They clearly established borders which America promptly ignored. America is the best at ignoring them. So much so that every single one of those treaties has been broken by the US, save one. (The Comanche broke that one).

      This land grab today is just more of the same, an assault on the sovereignty of the Nations that the US has worked so hard to stamp out. Killing us didn’t work, assimilation didn’t work. I guess taking and taking and taking from tribes until there is nothing left is the way they’ve decided to finally do away with us.

      This is all a lot more complicated than your simple deflection in defence of the bigot in chief you’ve tried so very hard to make happen. Sorry, Gretchen, but you’ve got to stop trying to make it happen. You’re so far off the mark you failed at even getting a participation ribbon.

      But, hey, Internet commenter with a wikipedia degree in US Native American federal law, don’t let things like “what is actually happening” and “the truth” stand in your way (not that they were huge stumbling blocks to begin with.) Please, do continue on with your well informed, fact based assertion this is just about slot machines. I’ll be over here shaking my head and being correct.


      1. Thank you for your insightful post, wish you posted more here, we need more of you! And nope, not kidding or being sarcastic, we need more posts like this all over TLO (and all the other sites I frequent), education and truth are great things…


      2. “Fun Fact: trump opposed the Mashpee Wampanoag casino, concerned it would interfere with his friends business interests in casinos nearby. It was going forward anyway but magically their land got taken back. Coincidences like that happen when you’re a president only interested lining yours and your friends pockets while actively disliking Natives.”

        Do you have any citations for this clai–err fact? No joke. I’ll be glad to indulge in that reading.

        “Make no mistake, this is a targeted assault because of casinos and racism. One of trumps first acts as president was to move a portrait of Andree Jackson, the architect of Native genocide, into the Oval Office. He took a special trip to visit Jackson’s grave on what would have been his 250th birthday, saluting, laying a wreath, and calling Jackson “the people’s president”, forgetting, I guess, that Natives are people and we aren’t weaving Jackson a friendship bracelet anytime soon.”

        Do you have any heroes from those days that didn’t participate in anything that is now looked upon as bad? I recall various tribes scalping each other back then like it wasn’t a big deal either.

        “And, selective link sharer, the Mashpee Wampanoag are not the only tribe struggling for their lands. Back in 2018 the trump Department of the Interior ceased all attempts for Alaskan tribes to have their lands put into trust, deciding that a legal opinion that had been used for that very purpose didn’t suit them so they decided to just ignore it. (Look. I can copy and paste links too! ”

        Selective? AP news is probably as neutral as it gets, while “Time” is pretty liberal. Since you keep calling me a Wikipedia Lawyer, I couldn’t resist posting this case for you: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carcieri_v._Salazar

        “Carcieri v. Salazar, 555 U.S. 379 (2009), was a case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that the federal government could not take land into trust that was acquired by the Narragansett Tribe in the late 20th century, as it was not federally recognized until 1983. While well documented in historic records and surviving as a community, the tribe was largely dispossessed of its lands while under guardianship by the state of Rhode Island before suing in the 20th century.

        The Court ruled that the phrase of tribes “now under Federal jurisdiction” in the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 referred only to those tribes that were federally recognized when the act was passed.[1] It ruled that the federal government could not take land into trust for the Narragansett or other tribes that were federally recognized and acquired land after 1934.[2]”

        2009? I keep forgetting who the Pres was back then. Probably Trump too.

        “None of this would even be an issue if the US government would simply honor the treaties that Andrew Jackson sought. Those treaties, over 500 of them, outline what the tribes were to receive for being targeted for extinction because Americans wanted back yards and neighbors with no melanin. They clearly established borders which America promptly ignored. America is the best at ignoring them. So much so that every single one of those treaties has been broken by the US, save one. (The Comanche broke that one).”

        So was Andrew a good feller or not, after all?


        1. I’d like to apologize in advance for the following novel but I wanted to ensure that Vix has all the supporting documentation they so desperately need but cannot obtain themselves as they apparently do not understand how Google works.

          As for my sources on trump opposing the casino, here you go, Vix.

          Or this one about the time trump secretly paid to block the Mohawk from building a casino which he feared would siphon off revenue from his own already failing casinos. Ads included assertions that organized crime would run rampant because all Natives are secretly Al Capone I guess, that gambling is evil, and that specifically “Indian gambling” brings violence.

          https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-trump-anti-indian-campaign-20160630-snap-story.html

          Or this tweet written by your brother from another mother, trump, opposing bill HR 312, which would have reaffirmed the Mashpee Wampanoag reservation as being trust land, paving the way for them to not only keep their reservation but also proceed with the casino:
          https://mobile.twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1126151799868723200?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1126151799868723200&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.boston.com%2Fnews%2Flocal-news%2F2020%2F03%2F29%2Fmashpee-wampanoag-reservation

          The 321 acres in question are owned by the Mashpee Wampanoag. Losing the trust status means that the land is not considered part of their Sovereign Nations and they may not govern it. It will therefore be subject to local, state, and federal laws. That means no dispensation for the casino. All because the US government says they were not a Native American tribe in enough time.

          Just so we’re clear, though the Mashpee Wampanoag have only been federally recognized since 2007 they were the tribe that the colonizers from the Mayflower met when they landed. They are the ones who ensured the settlers survival through their first horrible winter by sharing food and other resources. When they celebrated their first harvest in 1621 the colony had a feast that included as their guests The Wampanoag. Thus was born Thanksgiving (or Thankstaking if you’re Native). Yet this is the tribe who the US is saying wasn’t real enough in time so no casino for them! Seems legit.

          ******
          Andrew Jackson is not a hero, unless you consider someone who pushed for Indigenous removal, resulting in the loss of thousands of lives due to lack of supplies and starvation, a hero. Although you are a trump supporter so I guess I answered my own question.

          But we’re not talking about who my heroes are or what they did. Nice try at distracting from trump’s racism though. Pretty sneaky, sis.

          trump is 100% Anti Native. Yes, anyone who uses Pocahontas as a slur is most definitely a racist. The last time he did that was March 20.

          https://mobile.twitter.com/search?q=Pocahontas%20%20(from%3Arealdonaldtrump)&src=typed_query&f=live

          As to scalping, well, this part gets kinda curvy. Just follow the bouncing ball. I believe in you.

          One of the issues Natives must deal with is a special kind of racism called erasure. We were not only slaughtered but we were also erased from history, a bloody footnote glossed over by tales of Manifest Destiny. One of the things conveniently left out history books is that while some tribes did practice scalping they did not originate it. It was only assigned to them in news articles, films, and popular culture. We’re the Savages, wild and unfit to live. It was because of our barbarism that the US had to kill us. We would not be tamed. Of course we scalped people, right? That fits the American narrative more than the truth. Don’t believe me? We’re called “merciless Indian savages” in the Declaration of Independence, 27 lines down from “all men are created equal.” Talk about American narrative.

          The truth is that before “official” Indian Removal state and local governments took it upon themselves to resolve what was known as the “Indian Problem”. They placed bounties on Native heads. To get paid you had to bring in Native scalps.

          As for Carcieri, while the tribe has lost that court battle, they have another lawsuit pending on this issue, which is why they are not appealing. The federal suit would invalidate Carcieri on the grounds that, in laymans terms, it’s incredibly asinine that tribes, who by federal recognition are sovereign nations, cannot exercise their sovereignty on their own land, as agreed to in the treaties, just because the government made up some arbitrary date by which they identified tribes as tribes. Carcieri is just another ruling in violation of the treaties. I mean, 499 have already been broken. What’s a few more blows to the head to something that’s already dead, amirite?

          If by now you can’t make an educated decision about Andrew Jackson by yourself then perhaps you should direct yourself elsewhere instead of The Lost Ogle. Try this. It seems more your speed. https://www.sesamestreet.org/


          1. “…I wanted to ensure that Vix has all the supporting documentation they so desperately need but cannot obtain themselves as they apparently do not understand how Google works.”

            I cited my sources and links, just wanted you to do the same, and you didn’t disappoint one bit. Methinks you have all these paragraphs, links, and ramblings saved in a Word doc somewhere, and you just travel around the interwebs picking whatever you think will be appropriate in whatever new “inter-battle” you’re involved in.

            From you LA Times link:

            “In the rough-and-tumble casino business, Trump was not the only executive to use a public-opinion campaign to try to thwart would-be rivals. Tribes themselves have spent heavily to block competitors, including in California.”

            “The ads hit hard, highlighting news about crimes involving Mohawks to question whether the tribe was fit to run a casino. The Mohawk territory, straddling the U.S. and Canada, has been a hot spot for cigarette and liquor smuggling; some tribal members have been accused of drug trafficking and dealing with mob figures.”

            So the tribes did similar ad campaigns themselves (of course, LA Times didn’t provide any spicy examples) and they also had shady characters. Color me surprised.

            Per: https://www.countable.us/bills/hr312-116-mashpee-wampanoag-tribe-reservation-reaffirmation-act

            It looks like it’s not just Trump that’s against this bill, but even other states and tribes are as well:

            “Rhode Island politicians believe the Mashpee’s proposed casino would unfairly compete with legal gambling operations in their state. Rhode Island government officials and the owners of Twin River Casino have expressed concern that this bill could cost Rhode Island millions in gambling revenues if the Taunton casino materializes.

            Thus, the Rhode Island Congressional delegation has expressed its opposition to this bill. Through a spokesman, Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) has called this bill “bad for Rhode Island.” He’s also said that he’s “strongly communicated to his colleagues [Rhode Island’s] concerns and opposition.” Likewise, a spokesman for Rep. James Langevin (D-RI) has stated Rep. Langevin’s plans to oppose this bill when it comes up for a vote.

            When this bill was introduced in the 115th Congress, Michelle Littlefield, the lead plaintiff in the case against the Mashpee and a resident of the town where the tribe’s proposed casino is planned, said the decision against the tribe was clear and shouldn’t be challenged. She said, “It should be stressed that this tribe lost in court in a strongly worded decision. Obviously this is just a Hail Mary pass because they have failed at every possible level.”

            The Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah)— a sister tribe of the Mashpee tribe — declared its opposition to this bill in a January 22, 2019 letter to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. In that letter, Aquinnah Tribe Chairwoman Chery Andrews-Maltais argued that this bill would have a “very real potential to have a serious adverse effect” on her tribe’s ability to acquire additional land within the Wampanoag Nation’s ancestral territory.”

            “trump is 100% Anti Native. Yes, anyone who uses Pocahontas as a slur is most definitely a racist.”

            sure, but the person he directed at was found to not be native (unless you count 1/1024th to be of any significance). wasn’t she scolded by a local OK tribe for her claims as well? She also pulled that nice campaign video of her and her brothers talking about being native.

            “As for Carcieri, while the tribe has lost that court battle, they have another lawsuit pending on this issue, which is why they are not appealing. The federal suit would invalidate Carcieri on the grounds that, in laymans terms, it’s incredibly asinine that tribes, who by federal recognition are sovereign nations, cannot exercise their sovereignty on their own land, as agreed to in the treaties, just because the government made up some arbitrary date by which they identified tribes as tribes. Carcieri is just another ruling in violation of the treaties. I mean, 499 have already been broken. What’s a few more blows to the head to something that’s already dead, amirite?”

            So were you up in arms in 2009 calling out the Obama admin as well?

            “If by now you can’t make an educated decision about Andrew Jackson by yourself then perhaps you should direct yourself elsewhere instead of The Lost Ogle. Try this. It seems more your speed. ”

            You think these little baby jabs get to me, Francine? Try harder.


  5. My my, aren’t we sensitive and touchy today? But the article that you pasted seems to belie your point bashing the Indians, especially its last two paragraphs.

    If anyone is singing Trump’s praises these days, especially about his outstanding leadership from behind in the face of this current plague, I haven’t heard it. Granted, I rarely watch Fox News, but it’s good to see that he still has a supporter or two like Vix to keep him going. It must be very lonely at the top for the poor guy.


    1. all these years on this blog and you still don’t know how to use that reply button… i’ve posted two links, which one are you talking about? supporter or two? lol i highly doubt joe even makes it to the debates, let alone the ballot in November. I can already see all the lib heads exploding on this forum when/if Trump runs unopposed. Get those chinstraps ready for four more years.


      1. Sometimes I think that the fetish of seeing “lib heads exploding” is the only thing that keeps you and other Ever-Trumpers going.


        1. They are just so proud of a liar. But especially they love grifters conning Vets out of their GI Bill funding and selling worthless junk bonds to Seniors. All facts they don’t know of or understand.
          donald is cutting their Medicaid, along with stitt’s help, and if re elected will immediately go after their SS and Medicare which will leave the better part of the Oklahoma GOP voters living in a box but what the Hell. At least donald’s not a minority.


      2. You want a link, try indianz.com

        https://www.indianz.com/

        These fair-minded folks print Markwayne Mullins and Tom Cole’s weekly columns.

        Among the headlines:

        “Outrage is growing as Indian Country mounts a legal and political assault on the Trump administration, the likes of which haven’t been seen in nearly two decades. Tribes in the lower 48 states and some in Alaska are working day and night to prevent for-profit corporations from receiving a share of an $8 billion coronavirus relief fund promised to tribal governments.” — There is much concern on this front.

        Or: “Coronavirus takes higher toll on Native Americans in hard hit region.
        The coronavirus is taking a disproportionate toll on the first Americans, whose health care is promised by the federal government yet often falls far short of the need.”

        Or: “Tribes rush to respond to new coronavirus emergency created by Trump administration. As tribes work day and night to protect vulnerable communities from the deadly coronavirus, a new crisis has emerged from the Trump administration.”

        Or: “COVID-19 and American Racism: A Mohawk Perspective:The magnitude of this epidemic is yet to be fully realized but what it does is to further expose the naked reality of entrenched racism in the U.S. and this most rotten core of the national experience.”

        Or: “‘At this rate, the entire tribe will be extinct’: Zuni Pueblo sees COVID-19 cases double as first death is confirmed. Pueblo and Navajo citizens are struggling with COVID-19 outbreaks in their communities, with fears growing about even deadlier consequences.”

        Worth a look; worth a bookmark.
