The Future is Now...
The definition of insanity is this... doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Most of us are not insane, we are however continually contributing, reforming and re-vamping the very system that was put in place for the cultural genocide and assimilation of Indigenous People.
"I still see quite clearly today, as to the reason for establishing and setting forth our position on this issue - and why we did - last fall - for our children - to clearly understand their Cree Language, to learn to love an education that integrates and accommodates their identities, and secondly to combat and capture the drop-out rate of our youth before any more are dismayed and discouraged from continuing. They should be made so that they are happy that they are there; in this way they will learn in their most formative years to love learning, knowing about things, knowledge , knowledge that they should keep and remember. If we can accomplish this, what will happen is this; when they enter schools of higher levels, they wont quit."
John B Tootoosis - June 1976
