  1. Do not let the criminal angels near you’re village or you’ll be sorry.what will happen is they divide and conquer using their dope to manipulate the addicts,form new sub gangs,put women on the street and scare the elders

  2. Many things have been tried to help First Nations youth from all the harmful things that go on; activities, music, boxing-which are all good.
    People, however, need to work; if there is no work, make work, volunteer to do work for exchange for experience. When a construction Co comes to town you can say, I have experience driving truck; or what ever.
    If you want racism and discrimination to go away, Tell your employer you’ll shred your Indian Status card and earn your own way.

    When you’re told you have un fair advantages, which you do- You can say,” I’m paddling my own canoe: all the stares, slurs will disappear into thin air, as will racist remarks as soon as people learn you you’re earning your own way.

    Gangs like to pick on bums who they can use- this person can say; no time, I’ve got work to do. Thank you

    1. You might want to take a few well taught classes in Canadian Aboriginal History Herman, you’re quite misguided in some of your remarks here. “If you want racism and discrimination to go away, Tell your employer you’ll shred your Indian Status card and earn your own way.” Wow that’s beyond racist and discriminatory language. You have no idea how multi faceted the issues are facing First Nations people of all ages.
