Sem explicações, atavicamente sou extremamente conectada aos povos nativos do mundo, porém do CANADÁ em especial, UM PAÍS E POVO AMADOS DE MINH'ALMA! Assim sendo, como dizem "existem mais coisas , entre céus e terra"do que nossa vã filosofia, explique"!
I am from the Nez Perce Nation (whose people fought for their freedom in 1874-77). We were chased to Montana by the U.S. Calvary and reached the Bears Paw Mountains 40 miles from the Canadian border. After being attacked by the military, Chief Joseph decided to surrender for the safety of the women/children. Many of our people fled to different parts of Montana and Canada.

Chief White Bird led a small group over the border to safety (that is where the people were heading-to join Chief Sitting Bull and his people. There are many of our brother's and sister's that live in Canada today. We jouney to visit them when we can. I strongly feel the canadian government has done the native canadian people wrong. We are indigenous people of this land. We cry for honor, to be recognized for what we stand for as indigenous people. The government has never fully embraced and honored our people righteously. A little bit here and there when it is good for them. But for giving the indigenous people the honor they deserve, never has happened. Will stand by all our native people to the end of my time here on earth.
Treaty Settlements in BC I was shocked to learn recently that BC is the only Canadian province that has not negotiated treaty settlements with our Aboriginal Peoples. There is also injustice amongst aboriginal within their bands as well...this must also change so that all natives have equal opportunity.
