I want to thank you for taking time out of your lives to view this blog because it is one way we are able to show support for aboriginal awareness. One of the things I would like to mention is that right now we are getting exposure to the world with the Olympics.
I have never seen such a remarkable performance. Our inclusion shows that Canadians care about an aboriginal presence and our culture is one that people enjoy. It was so beautiful to see the drum and the dancers.What a highlight! Now I ask, are we going to collectively pursue the next step to come together and collaborate together to show the world and Canada our desire to create unity within our communities. Metis, Inuit, First Nations. The Olympics brought us together to show the world that it is possible. It was so beautiful! I for one am going to try to carry the same energy and pass the torch on to other events that celebrate aboriginal culture.
The movie Reel Injun is a remarkable archive that teaches about the impact of Hollywood and how they have translated the Hollywood Indian. We now are working toward creating the truth and a better perspective of aboriginal people. I hope you enjoy it cause I have always dreamed of being in the movies and will always try to do good movies that bring an honest interpretation of who we are. Now you will see why sometimes its so difficult for people to understand in changing the stereotype of the Reel Injun (hollywood indian)
