LIST OF ALL THE ARTICLES I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT INDIGENOUS STUDENTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD WHO GRADUATED FROM THE TRIBAL LINK PROJECT ACCESS - GLOBAL CAPACITY BUILDING TRAINING PROGRAM AT THE UNITED NATIONS PERMANENT FORUM ON INDIGENOUS ISSUES (UNPFII) SINCE 2008



I just decided to compile this list after a friend jokingly remarked "Hey Damon, if there was ever a Pulitzer prize for the journalist who wrote the highest number of news articles about the widest number of indigenous peoples around the world - you would be a real contender for it" lol.

So here is a reference list with links to the articles on my blog, for easy reference now & in the future (as I don't plan on stopping anytime soon) so I can easily add new articles to this going forward.

These articles below are only the ones where I was allowed to name our students, I did additional articles without using the names of other students who could be arrested, jailed, tortured or murdered - just from learning the kinds of truths in our course that their governments back in their home countries prefer to keep them ignorant of.

I was raised to give credit where it is due, and to speak the truth without fear, so when I say that I have become the Caribbean Indigenous Rights Activist with the broadest ever influence in the worldwide indigenous rights struggle that exists today, it is not a boast (as my enemies see it) it is just the plain truth, no one else from the Caribbean Indigenous community/ancestry has written more news articles about more indigenous peoples around the world than I, or diverted as high of a percentage of their personal income to sponsor indigenous persons & projects around the world - which includes self defence operations for indigenous people under attack from Central America to the Middle East (since most activists do not go that far to risk their own lives in √≥ther people's problems' and instead focus on their own tribe only).....but it was not made possible by magic (though one might argue a high degree of luck is obviously on my side lol), it was made possible by 4 key people in my opinion, #1 my mother for naming me after a famous writer (Damon Runyon), #2 - Famous Barbadian Journalist Ian Bourne who gave me my first internet news platform on his news site https://www.bajanreporter.com/ to write about anything I wanted to free of censorship (and he encouraged me to create my own blog too - http://damongerardcorrie.blogspot.com/), #3 - my Taino brother Roberto Borrero who recommended and actively supported my entry into the Organization of American States (OAS) Indigenous Rights working group process back in 2000...where I was able to work with him on the Caribbean Caucus at the OAS and help him and a select group of other indigenous colleagues - to negotiate and achieve the Declaration of the Americas in 2016 (after 16 years of negotiating with the governments of the Western Hemisphere); this Declaration will benefit not just a few thousand indigenous people in one country - but the approximately 50 million indigenous peoples who live in the Western Hemisphere today...so that is no small matter....However, these 40 news articles below were made possible via Roberto recommending me to get into the United  Nations process - and this brings me to the #4 person - for it was the financial assistance of Pamela Kraft and her Tribal Link Foundation that got me into the UN since 2007 (and gives me the continuing opportunity to meet & network with new indigenous peoples from around the world every new), and it was at the UN in the Tribal link training that the Caribbean Amerindian Development Organization was born (CADO) https://www.facebook.com/caribbeanamerindiandevelopmentorganisation/
AND the Indigenous Democracy Defence Organization (IDDO) https://www.facebook.com/IndigenousDemocracyDefenseOrganization/ - which is the ONLY Global Indigenus NGO of its kind in existence - and which boasts as Country Commissioners many graduates of this Tribal Link UN Training Course.....so all these good folks & more helped me to be in the position I am today to not just be limited to operating locally or regionally - but to be able to act globally....so we are all helping each other and learning from each other on the invisible indigenous spiritual family world-wide web we are weaving together <3
