1990 – Chaos and hostility are evident as the army advances near sacred Mohawk territory. As the tanks roll in, soldiers in full fatigues and agitated Mohawk warriors are equally defiant. This CBC-TV clip from “The National” captures the tense moments. (Warning: contains explicit language.)

Tina Fontaine (Walking In A World Of Hurt)

This song is for Tina Fontaine. Gone too soon….

I’m a songwriter and I claim no expertise where First Nation’s issues are concerned. But it seems possible the local news coverage of my song about Tina may result in some of her friends or family members listening.

To those folks I want to say, simply, I am sorry for your loss. Tina looks (if a picture can, indeed, tell a story) like a spirited kid and one who had many stories in her eyes. I hope you’ll find comfort and healing and justice…

with love and respect

Tina’s Walking (In A World Of Hurt)

Tina’s walking in the rain
Every heartbeat pulsing pain
No one out there she can blame
So she keeps her head down
Tina keep your head down…

This town is a one way trip
Litter flying in the cold strips
Every last hope from her heart
So she keeps her head down
Tina keep your head down…

Even drunken bad company is better
Than lonely hours in this cold hard weather…

Tina’s walking can’t you see her
Tina’s crying can’t you hear her
Tina’s walking in a world of hurt
Tina’s walking in a world of hurt…

Tina’s daddy crashed and burned
In a town where the mean streets turn
Into dead end desperate tangles
Spare change hunts for the get out angle
Spare change hunts for the get out angle…

Tina’s brain is dope sick dizzy
Eyes blinded by her tears of fury
Nowhere where she can find peace
So she walks alone on the dark streets
Tina walks alone on the dark streets…

Tina’s red skin life gone shallow
Blood spilled out like a fountain of sorrow…

Tina’s walking can’t you see her
Tina’s crying can’t you hear her
Tina’s walking in a world of hurt
Tina’s walking in a world of hurt….

Inside Story Americas : Canada’s indigenous movement gains momentum

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JO7kVQGeTas

Published on Jan 2, 2013

Canada’s Idle No More movement began as a small social media campaign – armed with little more than a hashtag and a cause. But it has grown into a large indigenous movement, with protests and ceremonial gatherings held almost daily in many of the country’s major cities.

The movement is spearheaded by Theresa Spence, the leader of the Attawapiskat, a small native band in northern Ontario. Spence is now 22 days into a hunger strike on Ottawa’s Victoria Island just across from the Canadian Parliament.

Indigenous Solidarity Since the emergence of the Idle No More movement, Solidarity Halifax has engaged in a sustained effort to provide support to the communities and organizers involved. I
n addition to answering calls for attendance and lending logistical support, Solidarity Halifax sees education within non-Indigenous/settler society as a primary objective in solidarity work.
Taking responsibility for Canada’s colonial legacy,
educating ourselves about the political and economic history that continues to shape relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples,
and fighting ignorance and racism within our own communities are necessary preconditions for a healthy and genuine reconciliation between all peoples.

    An overview of the history and continued practice of Genocide in Canada. Genocide in Canada: The Untold Story by Rev. Kevin D. Annett, M.A., M.Div. Secretary, The Truth Commission into Genocide in Canada “I believe the conditions are being deliberately created in our Indian boarding schools to spread infectious disease. The death rate often exceeds fifty percent. This is a national crime.” Dr. Peter Bryce, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Indian Affairs, April 15, 1907 “Then he kicked her. She went rolling down the stairs. She just lay there. She wasn’t moving; she wasn’t breathing. I see that all the time.” Harriett Nahanee, eyewitness to the murder of Maisie Shaw, age 14, by Alberni Indian Residential School Principal Alfred Caldwell on December 24, 1946

    Due to the organized crime put in place by the Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian, Mennonite, United Church and others in collaboration with the Canadian Government – over 150,000 native children were stolen from their families and forced into the corrupt residential school system (just like in Ireland, US, Australia and other nations) were the criminal priests, nuns and ministers got away with murdering over 50,000 children after conducting fatal medical experiments on them, forced sterilisation and not to mention continuous abuse. In other words, a clear causing death by torture and the resulting secret burials in mass graves on the lands of these schools.

    Yes, the Church and State has committed mass murder – genocide – in Canada and have been lying to the public by organizing fraudulent commissions such as the Truth and Reconciliation commission which makes it appear as this chapter in history has been closed. How can it be closed and how can there be healing if the criminals who did this systematic abuse – catholic, anglicam and united church of Canada – has not been punishment much less put in jail. Instead, their identities have been protected and the criminals still walk.

    The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State has decided to start digging at these mass graves to show the world the human remains of thousands of children to awaken the conciousness of the people that have dismissed this topic.

    Despite this sorry charade, and the real despair felt by most residential school survivors today, truth and international law are on the side of the survivors. Canada has already been condemned at the United Nations for its genocide of native people, and Cuba, Iran, and Guatemala recently tabled a motion to have Canada tried for crimes of genocide.

    Thanks to the work and the publications of our Truth Commission into Genocide in Canada, including a just-released documentary film on the subject entitled “Unrepentant”, many people and groups around the world are becoming aware of the crimes committed by Canada and its churches against indigenous people. The question now becomes, when and how will Canada and its mainline churches be brought to justice? If the problem lies not in the stars, but in ourselves, as William Shakespeare observed, so too does the solution. Every Canadian citizen has the moral duty and the necessity under international law to refuse to patronize or fund any institution that committed and is concealing crimes against humanity, like the government itself, and the Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada. It’s up to each of us to withhold all money from these churches, and even from the government, until they are held accountable for their crimes against aboriginal people.

    But on a deeper level, we need to undo the ideas, the economics, and the practices that caused this genocide in the first place.

    Before she died suddenly in January of 2004, my friend Virginia Baptiste of the Osoyoos Nation said to me, “I don’t expect you white people to drag yourselves into court for what you did to us. You sterilized my relatives, you murdered my brother Bugs, you beat my cousin to death at the Cranbrrok school. You’ve gotten away with it, for now.

    But there’s a higher judge you all have to answer to, even if you don’t believe it. You can see that judgement already in the dying rivers and the global warming and the rising suicides among your own children. You were really killing off yourselves, not us, by your genocide, because we’ll always be here, but your way is going to fade and die.

    And then once it’s gone, you may finally learn what your own teacher Jesus tried to show you but which you forgot, that his kingdom isn’t in this world, it isn’t about churches and money and who’s got the power. It may take you all dying for you to finally learn that.” Let us act now, while there is still time.

    1981: Native people fight for constitutional protection

    The long journey to bring home Canada’s Constitution has hit a major roadblock. Native and treaty rights have been left out of the new Constitution, and thousands of native people across the country stage demonstrations. Among the demonstrations is giant march on Ottawa’s Parliament Hill. As we see in this CBC Television clip, native people are united in their frustration and are resolved to force Ottawa to guarantee their rights.

    The Battle for Aboriginal Treaty Rights

    It’s a battle over the land and its resources. The fight has taken place on the land, in the courts and in the media. When government and native groups signed treaty agreements over a century ago, neither side imagined the repercussions. Canada’s native people say treaties have been ignored and their rights — from logging trees to fishing eels — have been limited. In the 1980s, frustration grew and failed negotiations turned into roadblocks and deadly confrontation.

    The James Bay Project and the Cree

    In 1971 northern Quebec became a political battleground as the provincial government and the James Bay Cree faced off over a hydroelectric mega-project. Quebec sees the James Bay Project as the key to future prosperity. The Cree believe the massive development will destroy their traditional way of life. Their tense relationship will continue for decades.

    Million Mask March_5332

    Christian Sanschaines Towsey

    Three days after the landing of Calvert, the Ark and the Dove anchored in the harbor. Sir John Harvey soon arrived on a visit; the native chiefs, also, came to welcome or to watch the emigrants, and were so well received, that they resolved to give perpetuity to their league of amity with the English.

    The Indian women taught the wives of the new comers to make bread of maize; the warriors of the tribe instructed the huntsmen how rich were the forests of America in game, and joined them in the chase. And, as the season of the year invited to the pursuits of agriculture, and the English had come into possession of ground already subdued, they were able, at once, to possess cornfields and gardens, and prepare the wealth of successful husbandry.

    Virginia, from its surplus produce, could furnish a temporary supply of food, and all kinds of domestic cattle. No sufferings were endured; no fears of want were excited; the foundation of the colony of Maryland was peacefully and happily laid. Within six months, it had advanced more than Virginia had done in as many years.

    The proprietary provided every thing that was necessary for its comfort and protection, and, to promote its interests, expended, in the two first years, upwards of forty thousand pounds sterling. But far more memorable was the character of the Maryland institutions.

    Every other country in the world had persecuting laws. “I will not,” — such was the oath for the governor of Maryland, — “I will not, by myself or any other, directly or indirectly, molest any person professing to believe in Jesus Christ, for or in respect of religion.” Under the mild institutions and munificence of Baltimore, the dreary wilderness soon bloomed with the swarming life and activity of prosperous settlements; the Roman Catholics, oppressed by the laws of England, were sure to find a peaceful asylum in the quiet harbors of the Chesapeake; and there, too, Protestants were sheltered against Protestant intolerance.
