If Preston Manning could start a "Reform Party" back in the 'nineties, why not the aboriginal people of Canada and the US? This may seem farfetched, but I believe the good book, the Bible, says not to despise small beginnings, because it will surely gather strength, then watch out, aboriginal people of Canada and the US will one day be a force to reckon with. We just got to start somewhere. Look at the black people when they were thought of as sub humans; some of them are in congress and...

We just got to start somewhere. Look at the black people when they were thought of as sub humans; some of them are in congress and look at Obama! Instead of complaining, let's do something about it according to the present system of voting because things don't change overnight, but once we get into the government, we can initiate changes for the better.

The only solution I see for the foreseeable future is form our own national political party for native people only and get our foothold in the parliament through the election process. I believe there a lot of non-native people who will support a national native people political party because they themselves are tired of the under-the-surface racial apartheid that exists among Canadians. Even the foreign people - Philippinos, Chinese, etc... - look down their nose at native people, but real...

I believe there a lot of non-native people who will support a national native people political party because they themselves are tired of the under-the-surface racial apartheid that exists among Canadians. Even the foreign people - Philippinos, Chinese, etc... - look down their nose at native people, but real friendly towards white people; that's disgusting because they're treated like dirt in their own country by the white people, the same way we are in own native land. I say we have to form our own national party and get voted into parliament and start there because I hear a lot of native people say they don't want to vote or support the present political parties, but if we start our own? If all native people vote for this party, things will get started. Got to start somewhere even if we start small.

I'm a white who is appalled by what happened to your people when Europeans came to North America. I would love to see you flourishing, living as shining examples of a nation that respects the land and all the creatures. I do believe you have much to teach whites in this regard. I don't know very much about all the problems you face but understand that they're wide ranging. It seems to me though that if you are to get more respect and take your rightful place in a society that is...

I'm a white who is appalled by what happened to your people when Europeans came to North America. I would love to see you flourishing, living as shining examples of a nation that respects the land and all the creatures. I do believe you have much to teach whites in this regard. I don't know very much about all the problems you face but understand that they're wide ranging. It seems to me though that if you are to get more respect and take your rightful place in a society that is prejudiced against you, you will have to show us your strengths. I'm sure there are many of you who are wonderful, creative thinkers, artists and indeed all the normal people that make up your society. I hope that we all get to know you better. I am glad that you're standing up for your rights and pray that you will be successful in your negotiations. I pray that we can live side by side, respecting one another and this beautiful land which is our home.

We cannot change others, we can only change ourselves and how we react to injustice.

Couldn't help but make me feel ashamed, to live in a land where justice is a game. I stand with Native Americans for reparation, justice, and equality.

Before we can address issues like discrimination, abuses on different levels, we have to address how divided we are as people. The government did a good job of segregating us a few hundred years ago, now we need to find the balance in who we are ,and how we all can fight on these big issues together!

We all (Nativeand the trolls) need to go back to school and learn spelling, grammer, and effective use of the English language. You want to win a war, learn how to use the weapons. The media, the government and the courts are continually pounding us over the heaed with words.
