Not much in the papers about this, but the Canadian Human Rights Commission gives mized marks to Ottawa on its implementation of recommendations to accord the Innu Nation of Ntesinan (Labrador) their basic human rights.

More on the Innu

Land stolen, herded into specially built and unblivable settlements, land used to test NATO jets, soon to be utterly warped by Inco mining projects. And still sef-government talks are stalled. This is colonialism, right?

Yes, indeed we have a long, sad history of ignoring, trivializing and lying to native peoples in this country.

It's pretty sad when the South African aparthied regime looked at our reservation system as a model for marginalization.

This is truly depressing.

I had no idea it was this bad. Should I be surprised that I was not taught about this in school?

No don't be surprised that you didn't learn this in school. Most people didn't. I learned a little about it in history class, but that focused more on the past than the present. The world issues courese I took put more emphasis on what was happening in the rest of the world. The schools are run by the government (at least the ones I went to) so they don't talk about their own messes.

One thing that Americans, Brits, Canadians, and Australians can agree on is that History is not a nice or polite subject.

The question is, how do we tell the little darlings they are descended from warlords, slavemasters and rumrunners?
