I WON'T ACCEPT INDIAN BLAME
by Author Unknown
For forty years with heart in hand, "Trying hard to understand in Indian eyes"-
I've been a might guilty, 'cause my skin is white.
I didn't take your land away, as I hear native people say.
Some did - and that's a crime -- but that was long before my time.
Just who of you can cry despair, when not one of you was there?
We are all victims of our race, with no control of what took place.
What I say now may well be crude, but I resent your attitude!
Life's not fair, I will agree, but see your own hypocrisy.
You tell of living off the land, how everything was made by hand.
You say that life was best by far -- then brag about your latest car!
You claim the old ways were the best, (or so you must have heard, I guess).
You sit and tell it all to me, while watching football on TV.
There's few of us, and let's not kid, who would live as our ancestors did.
In modern clothes you've made your mark -- could you go back to wearing bark?
Is this not pure hypocrisy, to live and dress the same as me?
To cry "Get out, it's not your home" -- then buy our Tupperware and chrome?
I'm fed up with trying to be sincere -- to justify my being here.
Your sanctimonious act I doubt -- I dare you now to hear me out!
In my bewildered guilty awe, I've heard you call me "damn white squaw."
And then proceed - in honeyed tone - "Betty, can I use your phone?"
As for pollution, we're to blame, (at least that's what I heard you claim),
And yet I saw as there I strode, your garbage dumped beside the road.
This land will never be the same -- we're mostly, but not all to blame.
If the white man's presence is so grim, why try so hard to be like him?
There are those of you who bitch and groan -- with every word you run us down.
You want the goods we represent, yet blame us for your discontent.
You say you want the same as me -- "Equal Opportunity".
If you believe in what you say, then let's think equal all the way.
Let's settle first the quest at hand - the ardent issue of this land.
Like you, this country I revere. Like you, I too was born here.
Next, so you'll be at par with whites, let's drop the special fishing rights.
The baby bonus comes to you, you get the old age pension too.
And so that bigots can't compare, you'll want no more free health care.
Your parity you will enhance - the feds can keep their native grants.
Equality is now at hand - I wonder if you really understand?
I have great friends of your great race. We work, we struggle, we set the pace.
We stand together, for you see, we already have equality.
Are you so blind you cannot see, equality must be earned by you, not bought by me.
Licences to hunt and trap (really not a handicap),
You'll have to pay just as the whites, if you insist on equal rights.
Cameras, TVs, fast cars too, are white man's toys, to name a few.
You want them all, and that's a fact -- so why don't you pay taxes Mac?
It's for the souls long dead and gone; the ones who really lost their home;
The ones so hurt when white man came, for them I humbly bear the shame!
I've said it all, I rest my case -- I now can meet you face to face.
Recall this poem when next you say, "The white man took my land away."

watch Catholic priest accuses residential school survivors of lying about abuse for money, CBC News, Jul 29, 2021
A Catholic priest has been banned by a Winnipeg archdiocese from speaking publicly after accusing residential school survivors of lying about sexual abuse to get more money from court settlements, of spreading falsehoods about residential schools, and joking about shooting those writing graffiti on churches, among other comments. The statements were made over weeks of services at St Emile Roman Catholic Church, and were included in videos on its Facebook page... "If they wanted extra money, from the money that was given to them, they had to lie sometimes -- lie that they were abused sexually and, oop, another $50,000", Forest said. "It's kind of hard if you're poor not to lie", he continued, adding that all of the Indigenous people he knew during his 22 years working up north liked residential schools... He went on to blame the media for making the vandals [who burned down churches] believe the Catholic Church killed residential school children... A spokesperson for the Archbishop said the videos involving Forest have since been removed and apologized for the comments. The archdiocese has also barred Forest from preaching and teaching publicly...
Indian Residential Schools Not Guilty of Killing Kids
(1800-1900s Canada high white childhood mortality rate)
Quesnel Cariboo Sentinel, June 19, 2021
Teachers order students wear Indian Lives Matter shirt (say res schools secretely buried nameless Indian kids), CBC, May 29, 2021
Who and where are unnamed children and unmarked graves? National Post, May 29, 2021
... A true figure will never be known for the simple fact that death records -- if they were kept at all -- were often lacking even basic personal information. "In many cases, school principals simply reported on the number of children who had died in a school, with few or no supporting details", reads the final report of the Commission... One third of children who died at a residential school did not have their names recorded by school administrators. One quarter were marked as deceased without even their gender being noted. Among the 2,800 names on the official memorial register are children known to recorded history only as "Alice", "Mckay" or "Elsie". Bodies of children were not returned to families, and parents rarely learned the circumstances of a child's death. Often, the only death notification would be to send the child's name to the Indian Agent at his or her home community...
Trudeau getting it stuck to him up his Indian tattoo (Indians say Trudeau tattoo cultural appropriation)
Trudeau tweeted about his tattoo: "My tattoo is Planet Earth inside a Haida raven. The globe I got when I was 23; the Robert Davidson raven for my 40th birthday". The Haida are native people that reside in the Haida Gwaii territory, British Columbia and parts of Alaska. Robert Davidson (referenced in the tweet) is a renowned Haida artist. Part of the reason Trudeau may have gotten the tattoo is because his father, Pierre, was declared an honorary member of the Haida tribe in 1976 while he was serving as prime minister. Davidson's grandmother "adopted" Pierre into her family's clan when Justin Trudeau was just 4 years old. Surprisingly, this occurred a few years after Pierre proposed a controversial policy (the 1969 White Paper) that would assimilate the native populations by eliminating their "Indian status". The younger Trudeau has also come under fire with the Haida after his support of the Site C dam in British Columbia. Because of these reasons, some native people classify Trudeau's tattoos as a form of cultural appropriation. "It's like me getting a basketball tattooed to my shoulder", Haida tattoo artist Gregory Williams told Macleans magazine in 2016. "I don't play basketball".
Indian artist paints Canada PM being raped by Indian Chief (Trudeau's behind Indian Land Claims)
Artist Kent Monkman is under fire for creating the painting which shows Monkman's alter ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, standing behind Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is partially nude, on all fours, preparing for what Monkman called 'a consensual act' while Indigenous women surrounding him laugh. The painting, titled Hanky Panky, has been condemned by many who believe it portrays sexual violence and disrespects First Nations traditions. But it is also being praised by some, including Ojibway Senator Murray Sinclair. Monkman posted the work on Facebook on Saturday and said the piece was meant to highlight problems with "the Canadian (in)justice system" and the victimization of Indigenous women, who experience violence and sexual assault at rates higher than other women in Canada. But it provoked a backlash. "It just really made me feel sick, and the way that the likeliness of Trudeau was being held down and forced into it", said Jaye Simpson, an Oji-Cree Saulteaux queer artist and writer in Vancouver. "It reminded me of some of my own situations and it just made me sick." Simpson took a closer look at the image and said it appeared sexual violence was being depicted as restitution. In a post on social media, Monkman described the circle of women in his piece as traditional law keepers, the okihcitawiskwewak in Cree. Simpson sees it as Cree women's protocols, or traditional roles, being disrespected. The painting also shows a Mountie lying on the ground with his pants down and former prime ministers in the crowd, watching. CBC News has cropped the original painting into separate images to avoid showing the nudity. The Cree artist, Monkman, who is from the Fisher River Cree Nation in Manitoba and now lives in Toronto, depicts colonization, sexuality and loss through his gender-fluid alter ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle. Simpson noted the prominent central imaging of the red hand, which to many in the Indigenous community is a symbol meant to honour missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG). While Simpson believes the hand is a sex toy that has appeared in Monkman's previous work, others see it as an insult to MMIWG. "He's taken the symbol and he's degraded it"... Sinclair, an Independent Manitoba senator, praised the work in a Facebook post, saying Monkman has produced "another monumental testament to the treatment of Indigenous women and the public's lack of caring... Monkman was not made available for an interview Wednesday. The Prime Minister's Office said it had no comment on Monkman's painting.
Hanky Panky is a 2020 painting by Two-spirit Cree Trickster artist Kent Monkman. It depicts a laughing group of Cree women as they watch Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Monkman's alter ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle prepare for consensual anal fisting, while past Canadian leaders look on....
WHITE LIVES DON'T MATTER... Amazingly, a Native Indian artist here in Canada whose anti-colonist, anti white-man paintings have been displayed in the Museum of Modern Art, depicted bare-assed Prime Minister Trudeau being sexually assaulted while a mob of squaws look on. There was a huge write-up in the Globe & Mail, one of Canada's two national newspapers. Trudeau's response to the racist scenes of present and former prime ministers of Canada drawn in vulgar pornographic positions was "no comment". Trudeau, an apologist -- "on behalf of all Canadians" -- to Indians, Jews, Asians and other ethnic groups and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, is not demanding an apology from these groups for white Anglo-Saxon victims of racism...
