Reality Cheque ~ Until Or Unless Indigenous People Accept Responsibility For Their Lives Nothing Changes

January 15, 2016

We are in the era of truth and reconciliation and I think that this is a major issue. If it wasn’t for the Indian Act, if it wasn’t for residential schools, if it wasn’t for colonial policy, the health conditions of our people wouldn’t be in this state.”

Hi Luv et alii,

Indians,blame,healing,victim,self,responsibility
Before you can heal
you need to stop being a victim.

It is a fact that in almost every category that is used to show how healthy or sick a society is, in Canada the Indians are number 1 with a bullet. 

There are many historical reasons for them to be living in this horror. 

Some caused by the colonizers. Some caused by the Indians. 

There is more than enough guilt to be shared by one and all.

If the Native people choose to blame everyone but themselves for their horrors nothing can or will change. 

Nothing will change because healing is impossible without taking responsibility for the choices that create the problems.

Take care, stay safe,
The Old Man
