to Richard Sanders for the courageous work he has done with 'Captive Canada'
revealing to Canadians their true sordid and violent history. Watch out, they do

"With rights come responsibilities. We all have a responsibility to know our
true shared history in this land. You need to know where you're coming from to
know where you're going to. Canadians, in particular, have a lot of work to do
unravelling their fabricated fantastical history.
"For Indigenous people engaged in many struggles, identity is one of the
struggles that we face every day. I don't think there's anywhere in the
world where your family tree is more scrutinized and modified than for
Indigenous in what some call Canada. Many Indigenous do not feel a part
of the Canada experiment though many are trying hard to find their place in
it. The most important thing is our ties to the land to Mother Earth who
cannot be bought or sold by anyone.
"All our Relations. Aho!"
