Back when I was just a tadpole growing up on the reserve, I had friends and relatives who were sent to the Sanitarium in Prince Albert.

They had tuberculosis, which was hitting our people hard. I didn’t know it at the time, but this was a deadly disease that would have a serious impact on the First Nations.

Algonquins Blockade Highway for Second Time – infoshop.org

Algonquins Blockade Highway for Second Time

Kitiganik/Rapid Lake, Algonquin Territory / – This morning at 7:30am, Barriere Lake community members of all ages and their supporters once again peacefully blockaded highway 117 outside their reserve, demanding that Quebec and Canada send in negotiators rather than resort to police violence. During the Algonquin’s first blockade on October 6th, 2008, Quebec police used tear gas and “pain compliance” techniques against a peaceful crowd that included Elders, youth, and children, arrested nine people, and hospitalized a Customary Councillor after hitting him in the chest with a tear-gas canister, drawing criticism from international human rights groups, the Chiefs of Ontario, and the Christian Peacemakers Team.

Left in the cold – McGill Daily

Left in the cold
The lasting impact of the High Arctic relocation
Pamela Fillion

“A ce jour je ne sais toujours pas comment nous avons survécut” – Martha

Marquise Lepage and Productions Virage’s Martha qui vient du froid gives a firsthand account of the High Arctic relocation of Inuit families in the 1950s. The film revolves around Martha and her family, their experience of the relocation, and its continuing effects on their lives. In the 1950s, the Canadian government brought families of Inuit peoples to the High Arctic with promises of plentiful game and better living conditions, as a means of establishing sovereignty over these islands – thus misleading them into accepting the “temporary” and “voluntary” relocation without being informed of the political stakes. The families were moved to locations supposedly chosen by “experts of the North.” Once in the High Arctic, however, these families were subjected to horrible living conditions, worsened by laws on the prohibition of hunting, and the government’s striking lack of understanding for the Inuit way of life.
