And just like that I remember that at the age of 25, after 6.5 years of marriage my best friend died with my hand in his. Cancer was the vehicle that transported his vitality much quicker into the better realm of life.

All the while facilitated by a room full of angels whose countenances…

THERE IS NO ROOM FOR BIGOTRY IN ROMANCE…

The way I figure it, IF an adult really had something she/he wanted to say to me she/he wouldn’t hide behind a blocked page to say it. We can pretend all of this is about goats and say I hate goats (Which is a blatant lie, I LOVE goats. Goat meat is delicious! Goat rotis. Curried goats. Birria de Chivo. Cabritos. 😐Sorry, got distracted.)

To be honest, I don’t HATE anyone but I do dislike bigotry immensely. Mr. & Mrs. Christy Parks and their minions can say whatever they want to say but in the end…It’s not me they’re hurting. 

Romancelandia is a very, very, very, SMALL community. And it has a very LONG memory. Everything one says and does registers, especially when it involves blatant bigotry. 

So I wish Mr. & Mrs. Christy Parks and their minions all the best but remember children, the world is round. All that you do will come back to you eventually…

Native Filmmakers Shoot Dystopian Drama on Pine Ridge Reservation

It’s 2085 on Pine Ridge. The reservation has been quarantined and borders guarded by the military for 30 years. Sparked by the ramifications of the Keystone XL pipeline, the war between the government and the insurgency lasted for eight years and resulted in the dystopian setting that provides the background for "The People," the inaugural project from Indigene Studios.

Based out of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Indigene Studios was co-founded in April 2014 by Willi White, Oglala Lakota, and Angel White Eyes, Oglala Lakota and Ojibwa.
“This is our way of giving back to our communities but also expressing ourselves,” White said. “Non-Natives always come here and sell the same narrative to the mainstream media. We want to change that narrative and give a voice to the stories that are already here.”

Aboriginal women ask Stephen Harper: Am I next?

Am I next?

That’s the question aboriginal women are asking Prime Minister Stephen Harper in a new online campaign to renew pressure on his government to call a national inquiry into murdered and missing indigenous women.

Coming on the heels of Harper’s "sociological phenomenon" blunder, the campaign is the brainchild of Holly Jarrett. She’s the cousin of Loretta Saunders, a 26-year-old Inuit student at Saint Mary’s University who was murdered earlier this year. At the time of her death, Saunders was working on her thesis on murdered and missing aboriginal women.

"She had come through a lot of the same kind of struggles that a lot women affected by colonialism and residential school stuff," Jarrett told PressProgress Friday, a day after  launching the Am I Next campaign.

"We wanted to move it forward for her. She was really passionate about telling her story, to stand up and tell the brutal truth," said Jarrett, an Inuit from the Labrador coast who’s now based in Hamilton, Ont.

After organizing one of the largest petitions at change.org calling on the government to launch a public inquiry into hundreds of missing and murdered aboriginal women, Jarrett decided to launch the Am I Next campaign.

It’s inspired by the Inuktitut word ain, a term of endearment for someone you love in her native language.

Here are some of the faces of the viral campaign:

This is what comes to mind when people try to tell me there is no (or less) racism in Canada. Hundreds of aboriginal and First Nations women are missing, abused, and murdered, and our country and GOVERNMENT doesn’t care. It doesn’t. Indigenous women don’t matter to our government and it’s horrifying.  Please click some of the above mentioned links and learn about these women and this campaign.
