Proving just how destructive the approach was regarding the John A. Macdonald statue in Victoria, the plaque replacing it was vandalized within hours of installation. The new plaque describing Canada’s first prime minister as “a leader of violence against Indigenous peoples,” was defaced with a large “X” carved across it. As a result, it already needs to be replaced. It looks like the attempt to reconcile has just cut new wounds.

Say no to hate. Today a statue of a murderer was taken down. #decolonize #indianact #bcpoli #yyjpoli #indigenize #canada #residentialschool #reconciliation #peace #johnamcdonald

Why teach history when we can hide it? Removal of statues of controversial historical figures is not educational. Use them to tell the whole story of a person. Good and bad.

Guess what the special is for tomorrow August 5th, 2018? Only for "Indians certified as Indians under the Indian act of Canada". As commercial laws do not allow us to serve much of our traditional cuisine to the general public. But under the Indian act as a certified "Indian" I'm entitled to trade traditional resources with other "Indians". 😂 Please bring your status cards or dear ones that have one!!

Catching a #vibe at the KAMLOOPS #powwow in BC !
The medicine runs deep healing the nation, inspiring the people and revitalizing our #traditions
The #IndianAct tried to outlaw our dances, regalia, and our language but instead we grew stronger, multiplied, and now trailblazing for the next generations.
Self governance and self determination has always been our way with more nations coming together to create stronger #community of #Indigenous peoples across #turtleisland

Well, as for the Assembly Of First Nations, all I can say is I blame Brian Malrouney for his reform of the Indian Act. As for all the public citizens on each reserve, I’ll quote John Mayer: “Sometimes you have to try everything before you get that one thing just right”. The Federal government want out of the Indian Act and the Chiefs want more revenue towards each of their tribes, if you ask me? This situation is a little bit sick. The problem here is the words used to discuss the matter, and the slandering doesn’t help matters, it may be free speech, but it truly doesn’t help. Again Brian Malrouney is to blame, as it is the federal government. And they can walk in and appoint any chief who they wish, if they so please, not to mention remove people from their land and use any land they do choose that isn’t being used as property to “better” the Canadian economy as a whole. Some say interference is at hand, in my opinion, the Honourable Indigenous Relations Minister, Carolyn Bennett, is telling the chiefs what they want to hear, as to abolish the Indian act all together, when in reality it needs to be reformed with a major overhaul.

Thanks,
Eric. #afn #indianact #canadianpolitics #cbc #aptn #powerandpolitics #pamelapalmater #brianmalrouney #justintrudeau #carolynbennett #indigenous #indian #assemblyoffirstnations #vote #pipeline #idlenomore #abolish

Hey folks, I've been mia for a bit due to meetings and working on commissions. However, I did want to share some exciting news though. Okimaw and Iskwesis have been sold and are going to the same owner!! I'm so happy that this duo is going together to such an amazing person ❤️
The last pic is a bit of a mess but the only photo I have of them together.
ps: I promise to post new ink work soon!
