FBI closes file on Victoria professor
By Judith Lavoie, Postmedia News January 12, 2011
An associate professor at the University of Victoria was told Tuesday afternoon that the FBI has shut its file on her, after investigating claims that she made "terroristic threats" in a lecture at Winona State University in Minnesota.
"The FBI agent informed me he was closing the case after listening to the original presentation as it was clear I had not made the statement that a young, white male student had complained about," said Waziyatawin, who has held the UVic position of Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples since June 2008.
Waziyatawin, a member of the Dakota First Nation who splits her time between Victoria and southwestern Minnesota, gave the Winona lecture in November. Comments suggesting that Dakota people might have to reclaim tribal land by any means necessary prompted a student to write to a local newspaper claiming her remarks constituted terrorism.
"That initial letter to the editor said I made a number of inflammatory comments and attributed things to me that I actually didn't say," said Waziyatawin in an interview from Minnesota. "It is really quite stunning that this one young, white male could wield this sort of power."
Kyle Loven, chief division counsel for the FBI in Minneapolis, said he cannot comment on the individual case, but the FBI will become involved if there are indications a speech advocates violence.
"In the U.S., 99.9 per cent of the time, people are free to express themselves in any way that's appropriate," he said.
"The caveat is when there's a speech inciting violence or inciting others to be violent. There's no constitutional protection for a speech of that nature."
Waziyatawin, an author and land rights activist, said this is the first time she has been investigated by the FBI, but she is used to her views making some people uncomfortable.
