Like many other Native American parents, we faced the inevitable Columbus Day controversy early in our children’s lives.As a family with Navajo, Paiute, and San Carlos Apache heritage, our four children went to ceremony in a sweat lodge run by their Paiute grandfather where they learned respect for all life.Through Dine’ ceremonies, they learned our Navajo creation story, embedded in sacred songs and ancient teachings that explain who we are as indigenous peoples, and what our responsibilities are to the Earth, our mother.
SAN BERNARDINO - The country's first Native American television network went on the air this week, fulfilling a dream the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and San Bernardino-based KVCR television have been working toward for years.
First Nation Experience TV - which shows documentaries, news and other programs focusing on Native American culture around the clock - turned out to be the dream of so many others that it needed to be almost instantly expanded, said KVCR President and CEO Larry Ciecalone.
FNX Executive Director Charles Fox, San Manuel Vice Chairwoman Lynn Valbuena, FNX Operating Board Chairman Tim Johnson, and KVCR/FNX President/CEO Larry Ciecalone push the button that launched the first all-Native television channel in the United States.

More than 4,600 firefighters continue to fight the Wallow fire in eastern Arizona and western New Mexico. It has become the largest wildfire the state of Arizona has ever seen, spreading across 811 square miles.
Forest Service officials believe the source of the blaze was an unattended campfire on May 29 in a heavily wooded area near the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation.
