8th Fire on CBC airs what it means to be Indian.

http://www.cbc.ca/doczone/8thfire/2011/11/its-time.html

This got my blood boiling especially when I seen Brett Wilson patting himself on the back for hiring or helping First Nations people which when I asked him to help me expand my business by putting badges, crests & logos so that I could start working on this active Crown Patent & many other NWCo properties which are spread throughout Canada. I receive no help financially to litigate, whereas Assembly of First Nations receive tons of money to fight their issues in court but when this Treaty Indian with Metis Scottish background approaches them for help I am shirked aside. I went through the Indian Residential School system, paid for my own Healing trip to St. Augustine, Florida where Capt. Richard Henry Pratt started the project to Kill the Indian Save the Man, I have yet to make it to Pennsylvania Carlysle Indian Residential School where Charles Davin who went there to get his report written in 1879. The guy committed suicide in 1901 probably because he felt guilty for separating too many Indian families.
Present day, I live in Hawkesbury in a rented 2 bedroom apartment with my 3 children who attend a school where Indian history is not taught, they receive their Native Studies from me & the History of the NorthWest Company. I receive no funding other what my mother from Edmonton sends or by what my wife earns from attending Algonquin College. We struggle big time, I'd prefer to be working.
