Here is what our TREATY RIGHTS did for me…here is what I know………..when the “white” people arrived here, they wanted everything, and in order to do so, they had the government do their dirty work…..There was Wise Elders in our lands who did not like these people coming on to our traditional lands that they had representatives go to London to speak with the Crown, and it was from these meetings that our Rights were affirmed in the Royal Proclamation of 1763……..Again the...

Here is what our TREATY RIGHTS did for me…here is what I know………..when the “white” people arrived here, they wanted everything, and in order to do so, they had the government do their dirty work…..There was Wise Elders in our lands who did not like these people coming on to our traditional lands that they had representatives go to London to speak with the Crown, and it was from these meetings that our Rights were affirmed in the Royal Proclamation of 1763……..Again the government acted to destroy us….they killed our buffalo and destroyed our ally Louis Riel who stood with us against the Government…….They even killed the Great Leader Poundmaker and Shortbear. Shortbear was jaled and died a broken heart because of his people’s suffering……Our people acted again and stood against the Government and succeeded……….Again some of our Greatest and Wisest leaders said to the leaders to enter into Treaty to enshrine our rights…………The Mighty Portage Bands entered into Treaty in 1871 shortly after Confederation….that is when Canada became a State………what happened there, three mighty Nations were formed, Long Plains, Swan Lake and Sandy Bay………by the way people, we were at that time called the Whitemud band and our lands were by Westbourne……The government succeeded in dividing us up……….Sandy Bay was given land where it is located today, but 75 % of it was under water….But we all persevered and lived our ways in our own lands like we did for thousands of years. Again the government took steps to destroy us. The introduced the Indian Act in 1876 which basically was a Manual to KILL THE INDIAN in all of us……….Again our people persevered and continued to live the ways of the past in our lands…………The Government acted again and introduced the deadly Residential School System and we all know what happened there. Children were taken away from their families and their Aboriginal Spirit was literally ripped out of them one by one. And there were thousands of children across our lands who went through this horror………Through Prayer and help by our Elders, we persevered and continued to live the ways of the past in our own lands……….Again the Government acted, in 1969, they introduced the “White Paper” which basically stripped all aboriginal people of their rights, everything…….Again, through our Wise Elders and Great Native Leaders, we were so pissed off at the Government, all Aboriginal People acted with such determination, and with such Power and Determination, the Government was forced to Rip up that Toilet Paper…….Because to me that what that paper is…………Fast forward to 2012………..Again the Government is acting to Destroy us……But not us, they are going to destroy the Basic Foundation of Our Spirit….The Land and Water………..The Elders of the Past call upon the Youth of Today to Act and Speak as One to Again tell the Government….Not in My Home………….We are Aboriginal People and we will continue to live in our lands like we did thousands of years ago and many thousands of years from NOW…………………………Not bad for a dumb SAVAGE………..Go My People…

Gitchie megweech Kyla, it is important that we can testimony what the White have done since their arrival here on Turtle Island, let's be strong together. We can inspire ourselves from our elders and also from Louise Wawatie, who was jailed (with her brother Joseph Jr.) as they tried to protect clearing cutting POIGAN forest in the Réserve de la Vérendrye in Québec. There is a meeting on MontRoyal mountain in Montréal Sunday. Try to contact Vincent Dostaler, he knows everything about this...

Solidarity Love and Faith are our main goals for now. Take much care and thank you agin for your sharing.

its to bad you think that voting for who you want is throwing away a vote ,, to many people think that way , thats why everyone needs to take that chance and vote for the party they want , or nothing will ever change :(

Cole Walsh there is a choice and if what you say is true then one choice leads to environmental destruction and the other costs some money.

Cole, while I agree with the first part of your post, I want to clarify that SOME politicians are criminals, and guess what? Those ones WANT to spread the myth that politicians in general are criminals, so that we will give up voting and just let corporations ("the Market") rule, as the Harper Conservatives are helping them to do.

- First Nations' leaders are the true patriots of Canadian values. Everyone needs to listen to this speech. (5:12) The Harper government's dismantling of all ethical positions is exposed by Dr. Pam Palmater who sets the record straight on the Conservative agenda to completely ignore the legal treaties on whose foundation the Europeans came into prominence here. She tells the truth pointing out the racist myths and stereotyping about "millionaire chiefs" and "band council corruption" promoted...

- First Nations' leaders are the true patriots of Canadian values. Everyone needs to listen to this speech. (5:12) The Harper government's dismantling of all ethical positions is exposed by Dr. Pam Palmater who sets the record straight on the Conservative agenda to completely ignore the legal treaties on whose foundation the Europeans came into prominence here. She tells the truth pointing out the racist myths and stereotyping about "millionaire chiefs" and "band council corruption" promoted by the Harper government and points the finger correctly at the corruption in the Department of Indian Affairs; by Conservative ministers and MPs. (Over a billion dollars spent on the G-20 week-end, more than the whole London Olympics spent on security; Peter McKay's exorbitant fishing junkets and the like) Average salary of Band Chiefs--$36,000 and thirty kept paid nothing.

I encourage all people of canada first nation or non fn to sign , and end this wrong doing to our country, I am sure their is alot of non first nation people who see that harper is in the wrong for going back on his agreements to the first nation people of canada.It was our ancestors who were murdered, raped and kidnapped and put into the residential schools.We lost everything from our culture to our language, we were were lied to and forced into signing treaties only to have them taken away...
