Organized crime ring, comprised of a few Indian lawyers, must be telling Chiefs that the Indian Act is the Constitution & protected by s.35.
Chiefs think the Indian Act is the Constitution for some reason. Funding flows from s.91(24) of Constitution, not the Indian Act.
Like Chiefs think they'll take over Nationhood! no way! =>Joint Chiefs Assembly Discusses Abolishment of Indian Act
It's true! All Premiers use the AFN National/Regional Chiefs to run Indian Act slavery & to deny services to Indigenous people.
The Fed's Indian problem is that they run Indian Act slavery using AFN National/Regional Chiefs.
Those at the top of Indian Act system have the most power. Chiefs are one step from the bottom.
The whole Indian Act Chiefs & Band Council system is what keeps Indian Act slavery alive and well in 2016 Canada.
So, AFN National & Regional Chiefs can shove Indian Act up their butts. My DNA is actually on Treaty 9 via my Great-Grandpa Sam Iserhoff.
AFN is forced on the Chiefs too, by the way. Indian Act Chiefs are forced on us too. Indian Act is non-Indigenous concept.
Indian Act was designed to destroy the collective thinking of Indigenous people & that it did. Chiefs are selfish & the people are selfish.
If Justin Trudeau wants the Indian Act, he can have it. He just won't have any Chiefs to run it for him!
I have 2 take out the source of the power, which is s.74 of Indian Act, the Chiefs. Rest will fall without the Chief system.

Our Challenges as Indigenous Peoples continue on a daily basis. As a people, we have survived numerous attempts to assimilate our people beginning with the Indian Act and residential schools. As Duncan Campbell Scott head of Indian Affairs from 1913-1932 stated ‘’Our objective is to continue until there is not a single Indian in Canada that has not been absorbed. It became one of the biggest acts of genocide in the history of this country, The experiment of the Residential system and it’s after effects continue to this day. As the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has documented children were innocent pawns subjected to experiments, deprived of proper nutrition and faced all kinds of abuse. The sixties scoop in which over 3,000 Aboriginal children were taken from their communities and in many cases outside of the country was equally shameful.

There are No DNA Checkpoints under the Tree of Peace ~ Kahente Horn-Miller Stand before a mirror. What do you see? What do you want to see? The colour of your eyes and hair, your skin, the marks on your face tell a story about you – who you are, where you come from, where you believe you “belong”. You might ask yourself: Why are my eyes this color? Why is my skin this color? Why do I look the way I do? And you may even ask – Why am I here? From the last century and beyond, Indigenous issues of community and belonging have been coloured red by the furor stirred up amongst the people through the imposition of ideas such as “blood quantum” promoted through Canada’s Indian Act. Blood quantum is an imposed mechanism for establishing peoples’ connections to reservation communities and enables those in power to determine who has access to resources. So, in essence, identity is about getting one’s share of the figurative “pie”. No doubt Indigenous conceptions of identity have been weakened . ...

Atleo resigns... ok. So does it make the entire situation better? Does it magically make the AFN a functioning system of advocacy? Does it make the Indian Act system, which fuels the AFN, effective in representing who we are as indigenous peoples? NO! It wouldn't matter if Pam Palmater or Taiaiake Alfred or Che Guevara was the leader of the AFN, it is an oppressive and colonial dysfunction inflicted on our indigenous ways of living and draws such huge amounts of our true power and dissipates it into ineffective political posturing. Atleo resigning is of no more benefit than having Harper resign. The system of oppression remains intact. The system must die. Get your head back in the game and stop falling for the bait.

The White Paper 1969 In spite of all government attempts to convince Indians to accept the white paper, their efforts will fail, because Indians understand that the path outlined by the Department of Indian Affairs through its mouthpiece, the Honourable Mr. Chrétien, leads directly to cultural genocide. We will not walk this path. —Harold Cardinal, The Unjust Society In 1969, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his Minister of Indian Affairs, Jean Chrétien, unveiled a policy paper that proposed ending the special legal relationship between Aboriginal peoples and the Canadian state and dismantling the Indian Act. This white paper was met with forceful opposition from Aboriginal leaders across the country and sparked a new era of Indigenous political organizing in Canada. What is a white paper? In the Canadian legislature, a policy paper is called a white paper. For many First Nations people, the term ironically implies a reference to racial politics and the white majority. The 1969 white paper proposing ...

Tonight, I will go over the Indian Act. The history, changes and reason of origin. After that, I will go over court cases - landmark court cases and consultation & accommodate cases. I post a little bit of information daily because I do not want want anyone to be overwhelmed with too much information. Legislation and policies is dry so I try to break to down the best I can. There is nothing more empowering than knowing your rights and asserting them - when asserting your rights, refer to the constitution and quote how The Royal Proclamation is enshrined in Section 25 of the Constitution Act. I am a proud Gitxsan because we still have our culture and our language - thru adversity, we still stand strong. Our connection to the land, to our people, our stories, our laws, and our songs .supersedes all that the Canadian government has tried to impose upon us since the 1800s. Have a wonderful day, hamiiyaa :).
So…… I stop at the res gas bar on the way home today. Fill up with fuel… The lady at the counter says to me inquisitively, "Treaty?"….. I respond, "Yup"….. She inputs the total purchase price into the register and I pay. She then says, "write your status number down here then", and hands me a clipboard full of peoples names and Indian Act status numbers. I can see who was in the store and at what time, based on the clipboard information... I respond by saying, "Oh, I don't have an Indian Act number, I thought you said Treaty." She says, "they're the same thing…." I respond, "oh no they aren't..!"…….. She then proceeds to walk away and ignore me….. The moral of the story is, lets find a way to stop calling the rebate programs that are attached to the Indian Act status indian surveillance numbers 'Treaty'….. In equating 'Treaty' to the 'Indian Act status' cards and evolving provincial and federal policy respecting tax rebate programs on-reserve, we have become the purveyors of our own i ...
The Six Nations of the Grand River Teritory is a Sovereign Nation as expressed by our historical alliance with the British Crown.  On 25 September, 2013 the 55th Elected Band Council, under the authority of the Indian Act, informed us that the Canada Revenue Agency wants taxation at Six Nations.  Ou...
Terrance Nelson It is all about money! I spoke of the Urban Reserves and Treaty Land Entitlement for many years. We can break our Berlin Wall, the Canadian Indian Act, the Canadian Economic Sanctions against First Nations, if we can access the money to develop our economies through issuing a $500 million bond. This is what we will discuss on February 26, at the Marlebourgh Inn. The Indian Act was legislated in 1876, but it is still law today. It is economic sanctions in Canada for the Reservations. Read the Winnipeg Free Press article about the February 26, 2014 Long Plains Urban Reserve Conference. There are 11 comments that followed the article that were removed by Staff at the Winnipeg Free Press. You can only imagine what they said, but remember we will succeed because we will never give up. Winnipeg is six times larger than Kelowna yet Westbank First Nation had a GDP two years ago of $500 million. They operate two shopping centers and 75% of their Urban Reserve lands are CP. If you don't know what CP ...
Kwitsel Tatel shared a link. January 14 near Vancouver Sharing! January 14, 2014 Dear Mark Hume, Thank you for taking my call yesterday! I told you I would take time to write out what it is I am trying to say to you, how to get there in a few words is another story! The number of layers of law, legislation, rules, and regulations are many! Our Traditional Governance vs. the Indian Act regime is what I am talking about right now. Just how many lens must we perceive ourselves through? In law, there’s one lens. On the doors of each provincial court house in British Columbia, a sign reads, “Minister Responsible for Treaty Negotiations”. So, what does that mean? There is a built in bias against us Indians as soon as we enter those courts. Not everybody understands this bias, evidently. For the Greater Good of our “Indian” Peoples in Canada, and on May 9, 2013 I beat Canada in the Chief Judge of BC’s court over whether or not I have the right & title to possess fish. I won after nine long years! The ...

Beig honest here, it's such a good thing we aren't managing Treaty Rights right now, but only failing to manage Indian Act benefits.
I can't imagine what things would be like if they just terminated the Indian Act as of right now, today.
If the Indian Act was to be done away with right now, as of today, would we be ready? IMHO and in all honesty, no. Too many ppl would suffer
