Re: “Why I choose not to celebrate Canada Day

"Land Bridge" - LMAO, someone hasn't been keeping up with current genealogical / archaeological findings. Sorry, I couldn't keep that one in.

Anywho ~
I won't lecture you about what to celebrate or on what you currently believe to be true. I would point out, holding onto understands and getting caught up in abstract buzzwords. I think you would be missing out on a point of interest to all. Without uplifting each other, everyone looses. Personally, I'm not looking to cultivate White Guilt or even looking for an apology. I don't hold anyone accountable for their ancestors actions or understandings/beliefs. But if we can't agree to this country's history regarding Aboriginals. The good, the bad and the ugly. How do we truly progress as a country? Not all Aboriginals are in dire circumstances just as not all Non-Aboriginals are privileged. But Stats Canada shows Aboriginals are doing worse in nearly all aspects. Not everyone would agree with me (nor do I expect them to), but my understanding this is an epidemic of western values/beliefs being imposed onto the Aboriginals for hundreds of years. Imposing all aspects of life, where to live, how to live, how to speak, how to pray, how to think. Told for hundreds of years, "Our way is the only way". Your ancestors and my ancestors brought us to the state we are in today. Whatever you wish to label the current state of the Aboriginal peoples in Canada. To progress the country, we must uplift everyone regardless of our understandings of any peoples. You want a easy answer to the "Indian Problem"? Proper education without the mess of the education system. We, Aboriginals can take care of the rest. To be clear, I don't have an issue against the educators. I have an issue with the cookie cutter style, everybody learns the same way.

I'll be celebrating Canada Day the same way I celebrated National Aboriginal Day... NOT
