While this is about the experience in Canada this is what was happening at the same time in the US. It is important that these truths get out. I am sorry for those who do not have Facebook who cannot see the whole thing. But below that is a you tube video that is part of it you can view. Imagine both Canada and the US were out to rid both countries of all Natives and through all of that, they are still here. We can not erase the wrongs our ancestors did, but we can share the truths and call out all who were responsible then and those still doing damage in so many ways to the Native people today. Below the videos is a hearing happening Monday feb.11th 10AM to change the name of Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day for the entire state of Maine. Please share.

On the Electoral College and being a Green
It is all part of a corrupt electoral system. That is why I am a Green. After Jill Stein ran she on her own went to 3 states to put law suits against the corrupt system and has just won 2 of them changing how elections will happen in those states. So we are working on it! Power to the People!
Hi All, So I have been following this closely and below are two interviews that were on Democracy Now today. And below that is the full video not cut. As you will hear from both Nathan and Chase, the Black Hebrew Israelite was spewing hate words at both the tribal folks there as well as the boys. Nathan went in between the two to try and calm things. What I find the most disturbing here is that we have all sorts of blame on the boys and Nathan and no one is talking about the horrible things the BHI were spewing that stirred the boys up to begin with. Since we have the words of both Nathan and Chase below and the video below that that shows just what they say I think we can respect that all else is certain people trying to make more out of this then there is.
The big thing I take from this is, that these boys have been taught misleading facts and hatred, but they are young and they can be given the truths. They were not born that way but that is all they know and it seems that neither at home nor in this school are they going to get anything different. As someone noted, why was there a school of young boys there to tell women what they can or can not do with their bodies and brought there by adults who did not stay with them to step between them and the Israelites. However this has now become a good time for people to learn some truths and I hope that folks will do as I am doing and start deleting any Social Media that is thriving on the hatred. I have also included the full Democracy Now.
