As if I wasn’t riled up about Canada’s “birthday” before today???? We all love to throw around the term “reconciliation” when it comes to Canada’s indigenous population but at the end of the damn day, the Canadian government cannot even stand a teepee going up and sharing space with “official” Canada day celebrations on Parliament Hill. Why? Because we aren’t supposed to exist, and any display of agency that indigenous peoples show is a threat.

List of needs for the reoccupation of Parliament Hill by Indigenous People. This reoccupation is being done to challenge Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations.

Pass this along to anyone who lives in the Ottawa area.

Read this thread if you haven’t already about the RCMP arresting indigenous people trying to set up a ceremonial tipi on Parliament Hill.
