Let’s keep this great feeling going

Published: August 15, 2008 7:00 AM

Dear editor

Huy tseep qu siiem nu siiyeyu.

As a Cowichan Tribes member, I want to thank all Cowichan Valley residents for your volunteerism and enthusiastic support and thank the sponsors and businesses, caterers, schools and accommodations that made the North American Indigenous games such a huge success for our youth. Also, your attendance to welcome our young athletes during the parade was awesome!

Manitoba Metis Federation President’s Message – August 14, 2008

This past week held the openings of both the 2008 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) in Duncan, British Columbia and the Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Athletes and their families make great sacrifices to be able to participate in these events and give their best for their nations and their countries.

This year NAIG was hosted by the Cowichan Tribes – the largest First Nation in British Columbia. Exact numbers are not available but it was estimated that there would be 6,000 athletes and 3,000 volunteers at the games. Aboriginal athletes from across North America participated in 16 sporting events ranging from archery to basketball, and from canoeing to lacrosse and wrestling.

IBM and the Neurons in Action Project

Making a difference and enabling progress in the world

This year, all eyes are turned to Québec City, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It all started in 1608 for the French-speaking people of the Americas when Samuel de Champlain decided to settle in “Kébec”. Four centuries later, Québec City is celebrating all that it has become after years of change and encounters between Europe and North America, the First Nations and settlers, and France and England. These are but a few of the many groups that have influenced the evolution of Quebec City; they brought new and innovative ideas that helped shape this beautiful city.

Fit To Be Tied Over Native Crimes – FCPP

Fit To Be Tied Over Native Crimes

In Brief:

– Crime rates among native youth in our cities are far too high
– Inability to make a living wage plays a role
– Funding for post-secondary education is difficult to obtain if a young person’s parents are out of favour with the chief
– Young people are starting fires or harming themselves in order to be evacuated from remote reserves to cities
– A growing number of native people say that some remote reserves should be closed or relocated to nearby urban communities where the jobs are
– Effective chiefs can end political divisions on reserves that ruin lives

Pressed for time, director Shane Belcourt found his voice with Tkaronto

BY JASON ANDERSON
Movie Section of EYE WEEKLY, August 14th, 2008

Adapted by French explorers and mapmakers from a Mohawk phrase that translates as “where there are trees standing in the water,” this city’s original name is unknown to most of those who now dwell here. But chances are the places, people and feelings captured in a new film that bears this moniker will not be so unfamiliar, even to viewers who might think the movie’s central questions about Aboriginal identity have no impact on their own lives.

Mad as a Hatter – Dominion Paper

Mad as a Hatter
Canada’s mercury pollution on Indigenous lands

August 15, 2008
by John Schertow

If a thermometer breaks in a classroom, spilling mercury, most children are taught to stay away. “That’s all it takes to poison an entire body of water,” teachers will tell them. Many children also read Alice In Wonderland at school, and are familiar with the Mad Hatter. Few, however, know that the crazy character in the children’s story is suffering from “mad hatter’s syndrome,” or mercury poisoning. Even less likely to appear in schoolbooks is the fact that there are hundreds of sites in Canada contaminated with this highly toxic metal, many of them on Indigenous land.
