    as a non-indigenous, I have my opinion on this, so I hesitantly share that this doesn't sit well with me. the first picture I saw of the pope with the headdress I thought it was photoshop. 
    He is the first Pope to stand up and apologize for what happened.  It is a great honor to receive a headdress but I don't see the Pope as worthy just yet but who am I?
    my take as well. As I understand it, headdresses are historically awarded to those as a result of their actions, not their words.

    Canadians have National Truth and Reconciliation Day today,so I though I'd share Gord Downies The Secret Path, which BC schools recommend for those above grade five.

    Reviewing a draft of an affidavit. So when we ask the government if we can sue the government for the disproportionate number of Indigenous women who have abortions, which contributes to this ongoing genocide, they say yes.

    so these accusations of Buffy St Marie being a "pretendian" are interesting and quite polarizing.

    Also, today BC lost their attempt to wiggle out of responsibility for systemic health care racism. Another class action will proceed.

    No use bitching about the over representation of Indigenous children in foster care and not getting off my ass and doing something to help changes!
