There was also testimony from Reid Chambers, an attorney at the Indian law firm Sonosky, Chambers & Sachse, who supported the legislation but raised legal and political questions that have surfaced again in the recent debate about Oak Flat: How does the federal government determine whether a sacred site is "indispensable," and who, exactly, has the authority to determine what is "traditional" and sacred to Native people in the first place?
On Monday morning, representatives of the Oceti Sakowin or Great Sioux Nation gather with their allies on the Kul Wicasa Oyate's Lower Brule reservation in South Dakota. As we come together on the banks of the Missouri River, some 500 kilometres south in Lincoln, Neb., the Public Services Commission has convened to decide the fate of TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline — and with it, the fate of people, communities and nations like this one in the project's path.
Every summer since 1993, members of Indigenous communities across the Pacific Northwest, from Oregon to Haida Gwaii, B.C., have departed their home waters in oceangoing canoes and converged on a host First Nation for a week of dancing, storytelling and feasting with far-flung relatives and friends.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
