Yellowbird red hot; Native country singer has conquered severe stuttering

Posted By Elizabeth Yates

It’s enough to knock your Stetson off.

Cree cowboy singer Shane Yellowbird is riding high on an astounding wave of popularity, logging a whopping 20 award nominations in the past 18 months for his straight-up country sound. A couple of weeks ago, he landed his first Juno nod. And the 28-year-old is still staggering under a pile of hardware he collected last fall at the Canadian Country Music Awards, the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards and the Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards. The tally: eight trophies in about three months.

Protesters’ trial a travesty of law and moral responsibility – The Kingston Whig-Standard

Protesters’ trial a travesty of law and moral responsibility

I know too little about First Nations’ roles in this country historically and currently, but I do know that First Nations principles, historically and culturally, are based on respect for the land, which translates into environmentalism. I know a little about residential schools-based genocide and related forms of genocide as well. But I think I learned all one really needs to know last week at the Frontenac County Court House, where Justice Douglas Cunningham concluded that Robert Lovelace and Paula Sherman, leaders of the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation, should be sentenced to six months in prison and fined more than $35,000 for trying to protect their (and our) land from environmental disaster.
