1. I was not expecting this to be so widely shared & requested.

Folks wanted this in a non-fb format - a Treaty Acknowledgement I gave this week in Urban Planning Committee.

It is very brief and therefore imperfect but maybe it helps.

So the racist pieces of shit who did this are our Kamloops neighbours. Now what? #TRC #TruthBeforeReconciliation 1/
I heard @tult7 on CBC condemning this as “small minded hate crime”, saying he hopes this racism isn’t representative of Kamloops.

I don’t know if I can be as generous as Kukpi7 Ignace. The racism is real and everyday and ingrained. In Kamloops, and the rest of Canada too. 2/
I talk to community & business groups, educators & bureaucrats abt Indigenous history/rights/ all the time. It’s an *understatement* to say people are ignorant of Indigenous issues.

It’s better characterized as flat out denial. A preference for ignorance. And it fuels racism. 3/

1. TV critic @misterjohndoyle says viewers tell him there's "an overemphasis on Indigenous-related stories and content" on new @cbcthenational. "They roll their eyes," he says.

Well.

Can I suggest some reading, sir?
2. Start with Buried Voices by @jhrnews. Data shows Indigenous peoples are vastly underrepresented in Ontario media compared to other stories. Seven times less, in fact, than what should proportionally reflect the population.

3. Perhaps sit down with Seeing Red. Authors provide ample evidence colonial constructs have dominated depictions of Indigenous ppls in newspapers in Cda. They argue media images of Native inferiority have contributed to marginalization of Indigenous ppl.

1. As @blueravenart noted, it is unfortunate that @downiewenjack gets $5million in today's budget but the @NCTR_UM gets nothing. cbc.ca/news/canada/th… #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
2. It is not that the Downie-Wenjack fund, and spaces for reflection and reconciliation, are bad - but we are still fighting for the truth BEFORE reconciliation: downiewenjack.ca #TRC #Indigenous #Budget2018
3. At a time when anti-Indigenous racism is rampant, Sen. Beyak is beaking off accusing the TRC as fake news while opening and holding space for residential school deniers.... aptnnews.ca/2018/02/21/bey… #Budget2018
