Although violations continue to occur, there is progress in action to enhance the protection of Aboriginal Rights. There are many people working to rally together to fight government policy which restricts and in some cases ignores Aboriginal Rights.
Hopefully as future generations evolve into socially responsible individuals, these struggles will minimize. It is important to be aware of the events in the community, to show our support, to educate our children, to vote responsibly against projects which compromise the land which is not ours to comprise, and above all to respect the First Nations people in their battle for their rights.
In order to achieve this, we must continuously learn and discuss, as we explore different mediums of information sharing, whether this is through written word, spoken word, art, film, music or protest, this blog offers a spot for people to see a sample of information as a place to start.
