Dear Rex: Colonialism exists, and you’re it.

A wake-up call for Canadians

réveille-matin

Bumping this up. I am so fucking angry and determined about this. Canada’s Indian residential schools have long been a source of national shame. Now, new research reveals that at least 3,000 children died while in the care of the churchES and government.


HOW BIG DO I HAVE TO WRITE IT?

You don’t like my language? YOUR PROBLEM.

My original post began here:
I spent a lot of time when I was young reading about the civil rights struggle in the U.S. and South Africa – which is good, because I learned stuff.

BUT while I was doing that, there was a genocide going on in my backyard and I did not know about it. No one talked about it. Hey! It’s been going on for a little over a hundred years! No one saw anything?

We have been lazy, blind (some were wilfully), naive, un-knowledgeable, sometimes ignorant. NO MORE.

It’s okay to defend Natives across the world who are murdered by Canadian companies. BUT we should also and more-so defend our own First Nations here. We owe it to them.

And put our money and our energy where our mouth is. It is so easy to have peace of mind after giving to SPCA or CARE or World Vision (or even Amnesty International) to correct poverty and human rights violations abroad ot to defend animal rights. But too often, we do it while ignoring people who are freezing, starving, living in shacks, having no schools, their rights denied here in Canada, sometimes across the street.

Now Amnesty International reports about Canada because we’ve been complacent and asleep at the wheel.

We so-called progressive people should start in our country. OUR pollution. Our waste. OUR human rights violations. Because when we do nothing, we are the colonialists. We benefit from the system.

Another wake-up call, also very serious:

please plant flowers

sis_logoWords fail me. After the Pickton Affair, after the inquiry report in B.C., police forces still are doing nothing to address their shocking racism and near-complete lack of interest in the disappearances and murders of HUNDREDS of First Nations women???

Big M Musings

Last week, the New York based Human Rights Watch issued a report entitled Those Who Take Us Away: Abusive Policing and Failures in Protection of Indigenous Women and Girls in Northern British Columbia, Canada. This report detailed various abuses of Indigenous women at the hands of the BC policing forces, including instances of physical and sexual assault. This report surprised far more people than it should have, given that it is the latest report in a series of more longstanding efforts to document the colonial violence endured by Indigenous women in Canada. In 2004, for example, Amnesty International put out at report titled Stolen Sisters that detailed the various structural inequalities that have produced not only alarming rates of violence against Aboriginal women but hundreds of cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women as well. Following this report, in 2005 the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) embarked on…

It’s time to be Light to the World

This from Aaron Paquette, the great First Nations artist and visionary.

It's time to be Light to the world

My comment:

Your vision is inspiring.

And here is mine: all women from the 4 quadrants (the Red, the Yellow, the White and the Black) will unite and rise to defend Mother Earth.

For our children For our grandchildren. And their grandchildren. Seven generations.

Hear the drums of our determination.

Aho.

Rise, my sisters. It is time.

For my lost Sisters in Spirit: gone but NEVER forgotten

May justice be done. SOON.
