That is what Canada is trying to do to First
Nations people. They are trying to kill a
people. However, we have survived and
we will survive, so we continue to work to
develop better relationships. And we get
stronger, so in 200 years we will still be
here. The sun will come up.
Canada exists because of the goodwill of
First Nations people and their graciousness.
One of the problems with the Canadian
Church and government is they think First
Nations exist because of their goodwill. We
get this crazy idea and we forget we are all
impoverished in some ways. And we all
have good gifts in some ways. Like John
Raulston Saul wrote in A Fair Country, we
are a mixed-blood people. We need to learn
how to live in a good way in this country.
We need to write a shared story. The mod-
ern story? That one doesn’t work anymore.
It only works for a few powerful people.
