There's No 'Hawaiian View' on the Thirty Meter Telescope
Bronson Kaahui - 4/27/15

Polynesians were among the world’s greatest explorers, mastering the science of celestial navigation, which allowed them to explore and colonize the world’s largest ocean at a time when most European vessels dared not venture beyond sight of land.
This is an extraordinary achievement that cemented Polynesian culture’s place in world history, beyond all comparison to any contributions made by its religious/superstitious beliefs.
Ancient Hawaiian religious beliefs were not as impressive from a historical viewpoint as our ancestors’ real-world application of the science of astronomy — not by a long shot. Every culture has superstitious beliefs, but not every culture discovered America and brought back sweet potatoes in the first millennium. Not every culture conquered the vast Pacific Ocean.

Recognizing Tribal Climate Action
Posted by Kathie Brosemer and Jana Ganion on April 22, 2015 at 05:43 PM EDT

The White House launched the Climate Action Champions program in late 2014, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy. After a competitive application process, the Department of Energy designated 16 communities as Climate Action Champions, including two tribes: the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians (Michigan) and the Blue Lake Rancheria Tribe (California).  These tribes were selected for their local leadership in climate mitigation and adaptation.
Native American communities have a long history of determination and hard work to maintain their cultural and economic resilience.  As it turns out, these same traits are needed for climate resilience.

Investment in Native youth equals a million lines of code
By Mark Trahant

No child grows up hearing — or asking — for numbers. Instead the four words, “tell me a story,” are the ones deeply embedded into our human software. And that will never change. But the power of numbers, the importance of data, is growing exponentially and becoming essential to how we understand larger narratives.
Then this is not new. The use of statistics, counts, numbers, all have always been a part of how we tell stories. Buffalo hide paintings are great examples from another century. Pictographs recorded people, buffalo, soldiers, villages, and meteor storms. The data was recorded. Then we did the same things with ledgers, books, computer tapes, and a couple of decades ago floppy discs, CDs, and thumb drives.

Attorney General

Senate votes to confirm Loretta Lynch as next attorney general
FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 2015

The Senate voted 56 to 43 on Thursday to confirm Loretta Lynch as the next Attorney General of the United States.
Lynch, a federal prosecutor from New York, will be sworn in on Monday, The Washington Post reports. She is the first African American woman to lead the Department of Justice.
"As head of the Justice Department, she will oversee a vast portfolio of cases, including counterterrorism and voting rights; public corruption and white-collar crime; judicial recommendations and policy reviews – all of which matter to the lives of every American, and shape the story of our country," President Barack Obama said in a statement after the long-delayed vote. "She will bring to bear her experience as a tough, independent, and well-respected prosecutor on key, bipartisan priorities like criminal justice reform."
