We’re going to hear is about Indigenous Rights recorded from a United Nations press conference. I want to point out something very interesting about this particular press conference because a lot of the press conferences that happen there that they get a bunch of the national press and reporters from those outlets show up to ask questions. While we were able to grab in from First Nations Channel that there were no other big international press people in the room. Does this mean the Rights and Issues of Indigenous People in the US and Canada are not news? How these people are treated by the US and Canadian governments isn’t important to us enough to be broadcast as news or they should be glossed over as not being newsworthy. And they aren’t newsworthy, what happens to any particular group’s rights is newsworthy and should be broadcasted. Thus, while we are putting this information out there, they will talk about colonialism. We’ve said time and time again on this particular show that colonialism is the root cause of a lot of hate crimes. That attitude about, well, this is our land and you don’t belong here because our forefathers settled here and they in they grew it to what we see now. Well, the thing about it is in the cases of Indigenous Rights, our forefathers were the ones the colonial forefathers stole the land away from. The forefathers who are already here or in this particular case, because this is one of the colonial attitudes is that there should be a patriarchal system, meaning that men are totally in control. Indigenous women were in control of the civilized natures, the governments and how the culture is spread and nurtured. Culture should be nurtured. So the matriarchal system that was in place by the original nations or the Indigenous Nations that were here in North America before colonialism has been replaced by a patriarchal system. Leading us back to some of the root causes of the hate crimes and the genocide that had been placed against the First Nations or Indigenous Nations people in the United States and Canada.
