Canada's Residential Schools

The religious organizations that operated the schools — the Anglican Church of Canada, Presbyterian Church in Canada, United Church of Canada, Jesuits of English Canada and some Catholic groups — in 2015 expressed regret for the “well-documented” abuses. The Catholic Church has never offered an official apology, something that Trudeau and others have repeatedly called for.

Republican Candidates Debate American Indian issues

3 comments:

  1. Of course, the "correct" answer is "Nothing. They all already have piles of casino money, monthly government checks for doing nothing, and free college. Yet they all mysteriously choose to drink themselves to death or get diabetes."

    Trace, do you watch the 1492's videos? Funny, funny stuff.

  2. I just sent this to my local party..... I am a voter in Fairfield County, Lancaster, Ohio. Tell me why I should vote Republican, which is what I´m registed as, when my rights as a native american indian have been violated by local gov´t for years? I do not have the same rights that non-indian citizens do. In 1983 I requested services through The Bureau of Vocational Education to continue to a college education. At that time the woman with that bureau said I was a documented native american indian, on the rolls and as such I could get my education paif for in full along with many other things. According to the Native Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 I should´ve been reunited with my family and my tribe at the age of 18 but this didn´t happen. When I tried to get my adoption information the woman at Probate Court said I was only seeking to hurt those who only meant to do good by me. She and I had never met one another up to that time. I walked into the office that day and met her then. Even so she blurted out that all I wanted to do was hurt good people. I tried to ask her why she said this and she stated, ``You people only want to hurt good people.`` I do not know my original birth date, do not know my real family, do not know my tribe or ethnic traditions. Why is this allowed to go on in the year 2011? I ask you why do I not have the same rights that all other non-indians enjoy in this county and this city? I further ask why the Republican Party here does not address this or speak out about it. I am an educated person with feelings just like anyone else. If this were to happen to someone who was white there would be hell to pay. Why not the same for me and people like me? I will make my decision to change parties from the answer I receive to this email. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you soon. If you should respond that you don´t know the answers to what I´ve addressed with you I will change parties. I don´t want to waste my time with a party who does not show respect for me and my ethnic heritage.

  3. I agree Patty! If they do not answer, switch to independent so you can vote your conscience and for the candidate, rather than party. Ohio sure has issues these days!

Did you know?

New York’s 4o-year battle for OBC access ended when on January 15 2020, OBCs were opened to all New York adoptees upon request without restriction. In only three days, over 3,600 adoptees filed for their record of birth. The bill that unsealed records was passed 196-12.

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.
