The Creator first made woman.
But she became lonely.
So she asked The Creator to for a companion.
The Creator obliged her.
He cut off a part of her butt and made man.
That is why native women have flat butts and native men are butt heads.
Many school systems do not incorporate Native history or culture into their school curriculums. I’ve heard of very few schools actually providing their students with good knowledgeable information about Aboriginal people.
First Nations, Inuit and Metis people are an ethnic group with a young increasing population. We have many social, political, economic, health and environmental issues that are continuously affecting us but it is often not being made aware of to the public. We have unique dynamics that many “Canadians” or “Americans” do not understand because they are not taught about them. If we are not providing people with the proper information then of course assumptions and misconceptions will be made.
Many people are unaware that some of us find the Baring Strait theory to be extremely offensive. Many people are unaware that Cree, Inuit and Mohawk aren’t the only Nations that exist in “Canada”. Many people are confused about how each reserve or community is unique - even if the people are from the same Nation.
Teaching the general population about Native history is very important. Our history precedes the history of “America” and “Canada”. We have stories, myths, legends and traditions that existed prior to any contact with Europeans. We have our own languages and culture that is often completely the opposite compared to the general population. Many Nations have gone extinct and many languages have also gone extinct. Why do we choose to call it “Canadian” or “American” history if we are choosing to exclude the people who existed on this continent prior to “Canada” or “America”?
If we continue to exclude this history we are continuing to exclude an entire group of people. I think that more people need to learn about FN/Inuit/Metis culture and history from the people themselves. History books and other various books are often written solely from an anthropological view. It’s often written by Non-FN/Metis/Inuit people. The best source for reliable information does come from the people themselves.
I personally think awareness is power and knowledge. If people are not made aware of our history and culture then how can they even begin to understand us?
