There is no end to the crimes against Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the United States.
I suppose the Canadian government "will make everything right" with one more "apology" to Aboriginal people:
A very good friend of mine, Nelson Scribe--- a former Chief of the Norway House Cree Nation explained, back in 1994 at a gathering of Cree eleders--- what it will take to right the wrongs of the past and put an end to the ongoing injustices:
The Elders took up the first part of the gathering. They met for three days trying to come up with a direction for the renewed Cree Confederacy.
They expressed concerns about injustice, poverty and struggles in their community. All across Cree country, the problems were the same.
The Cree Nation was once a strong and powerful nation according to what the Elders say. It was only when government divided them that they lost that unity and strength.
Nelson Scribe is an Elder and former chief of the Norway House First Nation in northern Manitoba. He says with the creation of a Cree Confederacy, they'll be able to speak with one voice.
"It'll be easier to get government to move on our concerns when we talk to them as one. It will also eliminate the provinces from telling each nation different things because we'll be one nation dealing with one government," Scribe said.
Scribe added the Cree Confederacy will return to the largest and once-powerful nation in North America.
"We are powerful. We just don't know it yet," Scribe said.
