Normal Honour Our Treaties
ndn.power The Mdewakanton Dakota Sioux reservation in Minnesota is known for their wealth. The band earns 1 billion per year from the 2 casinos they run, and is known to have mansion houses- some members even claim they have so much money they own two house and have so much money they don't know what to do with it. There's a 99% unemployment rate on the reserve, with 480 members. The band is known to donate give money to the more poor reserves, especially those in desperate need. To keep culture alive, they have multiple tepees set up around the Rez and often have powwows and teachings.
I love how they donate money and help out poorer reserves, yet the government doesn't even do that. Not even with their own homeless people. That's why natives do it better. No matter their wealth, we always have a good heart for our people and fight to keep our culture alive no matter what comes up ~Montana #native #nativeamerican #indigenous #indian #ndn #nicantlaca #firstnation #inuit #metis #aboriginal #sioux #ojibway #anishinaabe #mohawk #cherokee #culturalappropriation #poc #notredskin #notyourmascot #mexican #redroad

ndn.power As happy as I am the Métis and non-status Indians are finally seen as one of us, the government has done nothing but fail the enrolled status Natives and they won't do any better with the Métis or non-status. Our fight for our rights isn't over. We aren't seen as equal yet, especially by the government. ~Montana. #native #nativeamerican #indigenous #indian #ndn #nicantlaca #firstnation #inuit #metis #aboriginal #sioux #ojibway #anishinaabe #mohawk #cherokee #culturalappropriation #poc #notredskin #notyourmascot #mexican #redroad 19h

  •   chahboy Metis and non-status indians are now status indians under the constitution act. The liberal government is taking appropriate actions in ensuring the consolidation of a nation to nation relationship. Buts it's also important to note that this requires the efforts of nations in order to become successful and mutual. What the Trudeau/Liberal government is doing is far better than previous governments. I have met Trudeau several times before he became the PM, he is a passionate man in what he does and is sincere in his actions. He goes out of his way come to First Nation territory on our grounds to consult and receive guidance for further deliberations with his cabinet and PMO. The Harper government had never done any such thing ever. 16h
  •   danod6 They are recognized as "indians" under federal jurisdiction. Not status or indian act 10h

pachanawa My sweet grandfather's birthday today! A man of great faith, resilience, humour and spirit. He's got one of the strongest work ethics I've ever witnessed; at times to a fault. Alongside my grandmother, he's built a clan of blessed and loved Oji-Hawks (Ojibway and Mohawk lol). We've got a lot to be thankful for in who he is and all he's sacrificed for us and our community. Happy Birthday Grandpa!! #birthday #anishinaabe #ojibway #grandfather #grandpa #blessed 20h

stronglynxwoman With eagles surrounding me I know im capable of doing the work im about to do! Time for change, time for us to all heal together, time for us to speak about everything we were told not to talk about or to tell anyone about! This cycle will end with our generation! #8thgeneration #timeforhealing #indigenouspride #native #imawarrior #warriorspirit #eastvan #yvr #eastvanchick #wetsuweten #babine #anishinaabe 1d

shane.mcsauby "Of all the animals beings, the dog was endowed with the least exceptional powers... Weaker than the wolf... beside the deer, the dog was awkward. Less gifted than his brothers, the dog had nothing to offer... Nevertheless he felt constrained to do something. In his dependency, he pledged to give his love... Consequently the dog settled by the side of the bed in which the sleeping infants lay, alternately sitting or lying down. He gazed into their eyes, placed his head near their feet and played to amuse them... From that time on the dog never left the side of man." Basil Johnston, Ojibway Heritage.
