A NATIVE SPEAKS OUT!!!!
This comment was left from the issue of the student who refuse to stand up for the singing of our National anthem
Here's the blog -
As a Native woman who lives in NB, I think all you non-natives need to be educated.
You thank the English for the diseased blankets, you thank the French for almost starving to death, but you neglect to thank the Natives.
If you knew our history maybe you might think differently, maybe you would be less ignorant. But then thats why you have to be educated.
You can thank everyone you wish, I thank that Micmac Student for standing up for who he is, and I agree with Charles when quoting the national anthem.
Do you think we thank the government and the churches in Canada for cultural genocide, for trying to eliminate a race of people, for outlawing our traditions, cultural ways and spirituality, or for our language loss????
I can tell you no, I know I don't thank Canada, and I stand in the odd protest and I believe in fighting for what is right.
Do you think we thank the government and churches for the intergenerational impacts on the individual, families, and communities?
It's one thing for people to post their opinions for all to see, but it would be great if atleast the opinion is an educated one.
