Etcetera / Journalistic Ethics & Standards
« Last post by Advanced Smite on Today at 04:26:19 am »
There are many examples on NAFPS of articles that contain interviews with individuals falsely representing themselves as belonging to a tribal nation. Those articles end up helping a pretendian further perpetrate their fraud by providing a degree of credibility. Does anyone know whether there are specific journalistic standards or best practices (United States or Canada) that address this issue? I thought a professional society in Canada released something on the harm of ethnic fraud and related reporting standards but I haven't been able to locate it again. I may be misremembering though.
Research Needed / John F. Boatman UW-Milwaukee American Indian Studies Director

It seems that many who have been in charge of the American Indian Studies program at UW-Milwaukee, have fraudulent backgrounds. This is another director who has been mentioned and when I took a look at his family tree saw only French, Swedish and Belgian. Although he claimed to be Metis, Menominee and Ojibwe on his UWM page.
"John Boatman taught American Indian Studies and Ethnic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for 32 years before retiring in 2002. Of Me’tis, Ojibwe and Menominee American Indian, and Swedish, French and Belgian heritage."

Boatman has also published books on his "Supposed" Native elders, and his Ethnic 203 lectures drew hundreds of students. According to his obituary, "Director of American Indian & Ethnic Studies at UW-Milwaukee for 34 years, retiring in 2005."

Research Needed / Re: Paul Edward Driskill AKA Qwo-Li Driskill

Came across this today and just a quick note on the name "Qwo-Li".  It appears Asian, but it is actually the Cherokee phonetization of "Paul".  So it's Paul's attempt to turn "Paul" into a Cherokee sounding name. 

At TAAF we're still hanging in there to work to get him fired from his university.  A tall order for tenure professors.  Most folks there can't stand him anyway.  Especially his students.  You'd think he wouldn't stay where he's clearly not wanted....

… operating on Facebook still.

That profile links to this page:

Further links from there:   —

There is also a YouTube Channel: [Worldwide Indigenous Science Network]

I glanced at the first video, when observing that it's about 'The Eagle and The Condor Prophecy' I felt no need to watch more. We have a thread called "Eagle and Condor Prophecy" where this question was asked, but never resolved:

Where is the origin of this suppose prophecy?
I am surprised this person was never moved to the fraud section it seems all the evidence is there including her family tree which shows No Oneida or Native blood or family five generations, along with the typical multiple new names to cover up actual identity and heritage. It looks like she has German, Irish, and French. and her family line originate in French Quebec also. I seen her cited in a book on Iroquois history online, ad had a website and operating on Facebook still.
