NOT A BIT SURPRISED note - this essay was written in response to an article in the globe and mail entitled Harper sails into storm with natives feb 27 2004 As far back into the history that I have known Aboriginal issues seem to be consistently on the back burner What is it about these issues that seem to be too far-gone or taboo to address As a descendant of aboriginal lineage the issues facing first nations communities across the country are all too familiar to my family and myself I feel that the native community has been over-looked and ignored for too long and in this essay I will bring an example of such ignorance to the immediate attention of those who read it I have selected this topic because aboriginal issues are of great importance to me I myself have been affected in many ways by the governments unwill- ingness to pay mind to the history and culture of the first nations communities It is amazing how one gesture intended to pay homage to a people could be turned into something so greatly offensive These are the types of interaction that seem to be getting more and more attention from the media Relationships between the native and non-native communities are growing increasingly frigid everyday I think this article speaks extremely poorly of the government and rightly so it is appalling that someone in the government a representative of this country could have been total oblivious to the difference between East Indian peoples and Canadas own first nations people mistake or not What does this action say to the aboriginal people about the way the government of their country thinks about them and how much attention the government is paying to their issues When is it time to give some dignity back to a people that have been all but stripped of their self-identity as it is
