First Nations ‘seeking clarity’ in a new name – National Post

First Nations ‘seeking clarity’ in a new name

Tristin Hopper Last Updated: Jun 6, 2011

Only a couple weeks into the Harper majority government, Aboriginal relations already seem off to a rocky start. On May 18, the Canadian government made the announcement that the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs will be changing its name to Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development. Many First Nations groups — including the Assembly of First Nations — reacted to the new name with suspicion. “We will be seeking clarity in the ministry’s name change to ensure that it accurately reflects the relationship between First Nations and the Crown,” wrote national chief Shawn Atleo in response. The Post’s Tristin Hopper talked to Mr. Atleo to get his take on the new name.

I joined the board of Native Earth Performing Arts, in Toronto’s Distillery District, several years ago, and quickly discovered the best perk of the office is watching a performance evolve through rehearsal. Seeing the actors figuring out their moves together, adjusting dialogue, and dissecting the meaning of the play, and then witnessing opening night when they fire the creation into life…is magic.
