Kichesipirini Documents Nuclear Industry Contaminant Exposure Concerns
The Dialogue Denied Us

The leadership of the Kichesipirini Algonquin First Nation continue final edits on document that raises serious questions concerning chronic public exposures to dangerous environmental contaminants and that such ongoing deliberate exposure is directly associated with ongoing government and industry refusal to recognize Kichesipirini as a verifiable historical Algonquin nation, and our continued assertions of the legal and moral right to exercise our inherent and inalienable traditional governance role.

Poverty Is Hurting Aboriginal Families

SooNews Wire for SooNews.ca
Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Ottawa, ON (November 25, 2009) – Yesterday marked the twentieth anniversary of Parliament unanimously passing a resolution to end child poverty in Canada by the year 2000. Once again a renewed call is being voiced to eliminate poverty. While the child poverty rate of Aboriginal children has gone down since 1995, Aboriginal Peoples are at a higher risk of poverty; in fact more than one in three Aboriginal children live in low-income families. The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) strongly feels that the elimination of poverty in Canada must be made a national priority.

Merely ‘drums and feathers’ – Ottawa Citizen

Merely ‘drums and feathers’
When the torch passes through Canada’s aboriginal communities it won’t shed any light on the poverty that keeps their children from the Olympic dream

By Laura Robinson, Citizen Special
November 19, 2009

In April 1991, Olympic kayaking gold medalist Alwyn Morris of Kahnawake brought together aboriginal leaders who cared deeply about the health and wellness of young people. He also invited decision-makers from Sport Canada, who heard about the hopelessness and poverty that envelopes so many First Nation communities, where buying something as commonplace for non-native people as a good pair of children’s running shoes, let alone finding funds for an ice rink, is a dream. Morris envisioned a day when a Canadian Olympic team actually reflected the 3.8 per cent of the Canadian population that identifies as aboriginal.
