The Lord also gave me a love of Constitutional Law & now I'm going to take down the Indian Act and Chiefs/AFN/CAP/NWAC.
Liberals were smart. They couldn't impose an updated Indian Act under Chretien so they decided 2 make Chiefs think they created rights.
Kelowna Accord is a new Indian Act which Liberals will use 2 extinguish all our rights via signatures of Indian Act Chiefs via AFN.
Canada's Chiefs are being led to enter into "partnerships" that won't change Indian Act slavery or 3rd world conditions in our communities.
Chiefs deny civil rights to 1M Indigenous via Indian Act slavery admin by AFN/CAP/NWAC and not one word by Canada's fake Indian activists.
At other spectrum, dysfunctional Indian Act Chiefs, "Feds only want one voice. We know. One-size-fits-all Indian Act voice is needed."
Indian Act Chiefs, Tribal Councils, & Indian Orgs mistreat the people daily that the people identify with abusers ie Indian Act captors.
But 4 Aboriginal industry lawyers who use Chiefs 2 silence slaves & siphon Fed/Prov dollars, Indian Act slavery would not be in place today.
The only difference between CJ McLachlin and Duncan C. Scott's attitude towards Indian Act slaves is the year they govern in.

Pam Palmater knows that a universal vote 4 National Chief is not how Indigenous people governed themselves pre-Indian Act slavery.
I'm always strategizing ways to bring down the Indian Act, AFN/CAP/NWAC & Chiefs to set my people free from Indian Act slavery.
Bob Rae wants the Indian Act money so he tells Chiefs who silence the collective that using mainstream modes 2 defend rights is good.
Bob Rae is an example of a lawyer in Aboriginal industry. He props up Indian Act just so he can leech the taxpayers money attached 2 Chiefs.
Those creatures of statute called Indian Act Chiefs are not duly elected by the people cuz Indian Act is forced on the people against will.
Maybe I should really launch a constitutional challenge against AFN and the Chiefs, and their Indian orgs? Time to end Indian Act slavery.
All the National Chiefs do is smile nicely at the PM and then berate/fight with with their Indian Act slaves behind closed closed doors.
If Alberta NDP only talks to Indian Act Chiefs/AFN/CAP/NWAC,then she runs Indian Act slavery like the rest of the politicians.
Actually, many Indian Act Chiefs are not Indigenous. Their brain is so indoctrinated with Indian Act, they lost concept of Indigenous ways.
my Chiefs refused Douglas Treaty all Nuu chah nulth did. Violence began with Indian Act and British Shelling Us
Indigenous people don't want Indian Act Chiefs or AFN/CAP/NWAC. Kelowna Accord is just another Indian Act with new name.

Former dean at my law school would not even talk about Indian Act repeal & AFN corruption via National Chief Fontaine who was NC at time.
Indian academics are scared of AFN National Chief & Indian mafia so they won't tell the Indian Act slaves they are slaves. Fear stops them.
Rob Clarke's controversial bill to change the Indian Act passed into law

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. Like residential schools survivors, I believe they deserve an apology for the abuses they experienced even compensation. I’m not downplaying residential .. ...
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 ...
No1 on Mansbridge talked about Indian Act, lack of voting & silence of the ppl by AFN. That's causing dysfunction now, not Rez school.
BCCLA will be remembered as the self-promoting "human rights" org that did squat while Burns Lake ppl dismantled the Indian Act.
So now BCCLA can sit back while the people of Burns Lake dismantle the Indian Act, AFN & Chief without their help! Useless organization.
Burns Lake Band governance is classic example showing reason Indian Act & all legislation has 2 be repealed. Oppressive Chief.
It's "do or die" now. Time to challenge the Indian Act, FNLMA & new governance act coming out. Chiefs are imposed on us. Need 2 challenge.
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 ...

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.

Kwitsel Tatel shared a link. January 14 near Vancouver Sharing! January 14, 2014 Dear Mark Hume, Thank you for taking my call yesterday!

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.

Political Correctness is a form of propaganda that makes the assertion that truth is irrelevant- what is more important is that peoples feelings aren't hurt. Political Correctness is a real evil because it tries to get us to ignore great evil (the Indian act as an example) because calling it out truthfully hurts feelings. In this case - what is the "great truth" we are trying to conceal? Political Correctness is an evil - but that doesn't mean we can't respect one another
Even though the opportunity has always been present - it's never been a more critical time then now for Chiefs and Councils to decide whether they want to continue to be the administrators of the Indian Act... Or to be Leaders of a Nation, mandated by the people, governed by the Land.
DESKAHEH DESKAHEH line DeskahehBorn into the Cayuga nation in 1872, Levi General is one of the most renowned members of the Haudenosaunee to date. His dedication to his heritage and courage to preserve it make him stand out as one of the heroes of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Working as a farmer on the Grand River territory Levi gained the respect of his people as a linguist who could speak the five dialects of the Haudenosaunee as well as English. As an honest and sincere father of nine and supportive husband he was selected to sit on the traditional Cayuga (235kb/2sec)sound bite council under the name Deskaheh (147kb/1sec)sound bite in 1917. It was his skill for speaking that lead him to represent the nation when the Canadian government, suffering for fighters during World War I decided to assimilate the nation, disregarding the old treaties. It was Levi who headed the delegation which explained to the Canadian Government in Ottawa that they had no jurisdiction over the nation and pointed out that th ...

If Stephen Harper and conservatives can fork out $90,000 to commit bribery, fraud and breach of trust dealing with a Senator, spend $600,000 a year for limo service, and give great tax breaks to the wealthy, maybe I should be asking Stephen not Santa to fulfill my wish list. First wish. Return the 57 billion dollar surplus Jim Flaherty took from the Employment Insurance program. Canadians could really use that money now. We have been paying into it for years and it only seems right that we should be able to benefit from it seeing that your government has failed to create the jobs Canadians need. With these dollars your government could create a Canadian jobs training program for all those jobs your government is giving to Temporary Foreign Workers. I read 25% of all jobs created in Canada go to TFW. Last year in Alberta it was 65% of all new Albertan jobs. WOW. Second wish. Stop dismis . ...
Did you know that Canada’s federal animal cruelty law was originally enacted in 1892? To put this in context, in 1892: Canada numbered roughly 4.8 million people Women were not considered “persons” under law and were not eligible to vote in federal elections Aboriginal religious ceremonies such as potlatches and dances were outlawed under the Indian Act Chinese immigrants coming to Canada were singled out and forced to pay a fifty dollar fee to enter the country – a substantial amount of money at the time. So much has changed in Canada since those times, mostly for the good. As a nation, however, we have failed in bringing progressive positive change to improve the welfare of animals. Did you know that a new bill to change this antiquated legislation, the first substantive change to animal cruelty laws in 113 years, was passed by all parties in the House of Commons twice in 2003, but the Senate stood in its way? Did you know that the outdated wording of the current law prevents the prosecution of ...
Ron Sterritt It is funny how easily the Assembly of First Nations are conned "Back into Line". The Government just cut their wages a bit, and they are back to singing "We don't like the Indian Act" like a bunch of crows on a fence. The boneheads, especially the little screwball with the bulrush hat, can't see far enough ahead to realize that when they lose their "Status as Indians", they won't be needed any more. Their jobs and wages go down the toilet. I guess they have an attitude that they are somehow better than "Indians", or that they would get other "Government Jobs". Meanwhile the "Genocide Program" by the Government comes into its final stage. It is down to "Steal our Land and Resources, and Status as Indians". The jailing of Indian Men, "Legal Stealing" of Indian Children by the Government leaning Court by putting them into "Permanent Foster Care", killing of Indian ladies and girls, Jailing of Indian men will go on until the last Indian in Canada is stuffed and placed in a Museum. Canada has und ...
"This is a good reason for our leaders to consult with the people instead of making unilateral agreements on their own. Chiefs come and go.the people don't. Individual decisions versus community participation.doesn't work. The Indian Act Chiefs are failing their responsibilities to the people." - Nadine McDougall
FRCN SIGNS First Nations LAND MANAGEMENT REGIME By signing the Framework Agreement, Fisher River Cree Nation can now begin the process of opting out of 34 land-related sections of the Indian Act and assume greater control over their reserve land and resources. The FNLM regime enables First Nations to manage their own land, resources and environment according to their own land codes, laws and policies. The regime also helps First Nations get out from under 34 land-related limitations of the Indian Act in order to take control of their land and resources.
*** “Is it not rich with irony that South Africa imposed its legislation on those peoples, those tribes, in 1948 and they learned from the Indian Act of the government of Canada, that they built their apartheid system on the Indian Act in Canada?” Bill Erasmus, national chief of the Dene and the AFN’s regional chief for the Northwest Territories, said it is important to understand that Mr. Atleo did not go to South Africa as part of the Canadian delegation but as a representative of First Nations. “They have been calling our people, in the last year, terrorists,” Mr. Erasmus said in reference to a threat assessment Canada’s Integrated Terrorism Assessment Centre prepared in January of the First Nations protest movement Idle No More. “That’s what they used to call Mandela.” *** Nizo Raccoon Al-Tamimi
OTTAWA — In a rare moment of harmony between the Harper government and First Nations, 28 bands signed a First Nations Land Management Regime (FNLMR) on Thursday. The latest signing ceremony brings the number of bands that have signed on to 110. The FNLMR allows signatories to circumvent 34 sections of the Indian Act that give decision-making powers over land use to the minister of aboriginal affairs and the department. The FNLMR covers daily land use issues such as licensing, leasing, and obtaining a forestry permit. Once bands have signed on, the next step is to develop land-use codes and establish their own laws for land and resource use — all things they would otherwise have to ask the feds for permission to pursue. Chief Robert Louie of the First Nations Land Advisory Board said the agreement gives First Nations more opportunities to contribute economically to their own communities and to Canada at large. "Adding more First Nations into land management will help propel much-needed economic prosper ...
Still looking for an English course for next term at Cap U? ENGL 107-01 First Nations Writing and Film This course draws on a broad range of work from contemporary indigenous writers, artists, and filmmakers. Students will read creative and critical works from indigenous voices on matters of realism and fantasy, the history of colonialism, reconciliation, the legacies of residential schools, treaties and land claims, the Indian Act and self-government, decolonization and territorial claims, Idle No More, women’s and ‘Two-spirited’ voices, media representations of Indigenous peoples and many other issues. Special focuses of this section include new forms of interactive storytelling that make use of digital and new media and a selection of readings in the flourishing genre of indigenous science fiction.
Today FRCN signs on to the First Nation Lands Management Act. This means the removal of 34 sections of the Indian Act dealing with lands.
As a result of the November 2012 vote,the Ha'wiih and chief and Council are re-evaluating the treaty strategy and examining all options available for the nation re-building. To meet this objective,the chief and council and the Ha'waiih have set up a Nation Re-Building Task Force. The task force is looking at the following list of nation re-building tools: * Provincial Reconciliation Agreement * Legal duty to consult and accommodate aboriginal title and rights * Constitution * Indian Act By-Laws *Inherent Right Resource Management Laws *United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous peoples *Direct Action *Legal Action *Continuing into Final Agreement Negotiations *Self - Government Negotiations *Custom Election Code *Citizenship code *Federal Land Management Act *Other ideas brought forward by the membership We will be providing regular updates on the work of the task force and are interested in your ideas for nation re-building
I have a power point presentation this afternoon I am doing it on colonialism with treaties and the Indian Act.
They've been regulating First Nation People and still do with their top down approach...seems they have almost completed their Colonization process and what they've started out to do. If we look at the gov't system that FN's follow according to the Indian Act...and we see how the people are separated from their leadership, it is quite similar to how our leaders were turned away from the Parliament doors last year. Very similar in that either they are afraid of the people or fear for their own safety...hmm makes one wonder, why put a barrier of sorts from your own People?
Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for Saanich—Gulf Islands for her speech. I should talk about the magnificent riding of Saanich—Gulf Islands, even though it is not as magnificent as mine. She spoke about International Human Rights Day. I was at the international conference on human rights in Vienna, in order to make the entire world recognize that aboriginal peoples are also peoples, just like all the other peoples on the planet. We have fought that battle for a long time. However, I would like to come back to an issue that I find to be important in this debate on relations with Canada's first peoples. It is an important issue because, at present, we are celebrating the life of the extraordinary Nelson Mandela, who defeated a system that made no sense. Does my colleague not have the impression that with the Indian Act we are dealing with almost the same system as apartheid in South Africa? December 10th, 11 a.m. First Nations Elections Act

The distraction and smokescreen provided by the ROB FORD debacle, is taking away attentions the public might otherwise focus on FRACKI|NG, NUCLEAR WASTE dumps, NORTHERN GATEWAY frightful pipeline etc, the changes to the Indian Act and Environmental rules, regulations and monitoring...all in the name of big oil/big gas Harper. Media outlets from all over the world are distracted by Mr. Ford. Comments arise, something to the effect, that the image that Rob Ford has projected all along, represents his constituency of Toronto! Reflecting badly! No! No one would think that of the wonderful diversity of citizens of Toronto! Far be it! But ...I am more scared about my country as a whole!. Perhaps ROB FORD does indeed represent a large portion of this country...has buffoonery and conspicuous consumption arrogance taken over beyond the borders of Toronto itself. I am slowly becoming aware of this. Perhaps we should not be so *** Mr. FORD, as the way I am starting to see it "He is us!".
I googled "social injustice examples in Canada" and found a government PDF with some startling facts from the timeline of social and cultural injustices in CANADA. I tried to post the link and it said I couldn't post it due to privacy reasons of the attachment. So I tried to copy and paste it into my status and it said the same thing!! Must be very secretive info! I pasted it into Word, and copied it from there. Hope it works this time: Timeline of Social and Cultural Injustices in Canada 9.1.4 c 1876 The Indian Act is established and controls many aspects of First Nations persons’ lives, from birth to death. Indian Bands are created and many decisions are made by the federal government about the relocation of First Nations. (Since then, the Indian Act has undergone many amendments. Until 1951, laws defined a person as "an individual other than an Indian." Indians could obtain the right to vote by renouncing their Indian status, and were not considered to have the same rights as citizens until 1960. ...
The Ontario Superior Court has issued an important decision regarding the ability of an Indian band to seize a certificate of possession in reserve lands held by its members. As a result of the decision, the certificate holder was ordered to give up his interest in the land in favour of the band. The case expands the ability of bands to satisfy court judgments by seizing certificate of possession lands.   Certificates of possession are granted to individual band members with the consent of the band council and the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs. Once the certificate has been granted, the certificate holder has an exclusive right to use and possess the reserve land in question.   The case arose from an apparent conflict between two sections of the Indian Act. Section 29 states that “Reserve lands are not subject to seizure under legal process.” Section 89(1) says that “Subject to this Act, the real and personal property of an Indian or a band situated on a reserve is not subject to...seizure...or e ...
