Yo! Kainai Nation!

Beijing York has an excellent suggestion.
The Kainai Nation of Alberta should demand that Harper relinquish his eagle feather. He's made it abundantly clear that he has no respect for indigenous people here or elsewhere, and his residential school apology was just political theatre for him.

Remember in July 2011 when the Kainai Nation, aka Blood Tribe, gave the world the occasion for another glorious photo op?

Let's hope the Kainai people are rethinking that about now.

ADDED: From Kev, it seems the people may be doing exactly that.

On a sadder note, there is a Member of the Cross Lake First Nation who has been on a hunger strike for the same reasons as Chief Theresa for some 2 weeks. He's waiting to hear from Harper - luckily Premier Selinger has been humane enough to meet him and promise to do what he can to help with the situation. (Better not be weasel words...)

By the way, I'm hoping you get a chance to rest and enjoy the holidays Fern, dBO, Niles and Mandos (and dear Anne if you're reading).
