Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day from Maggie
Since I am Metis heritage, (and, to stay as non political as possible. I never have celebrated the other political holiday that is today and, I do not intend to. I wanted to say a few things to be mindful of about Indigenous things.
My patron Saint upon Baptism when I was a practicing Catholic (and, I still feel very connected to her) Is saint Kateri.
Please, when considering your Halloween costume, try to be mindful and respectful about not thinking of Indians as a costume choice.
I did want to say a good scene to recommend in a film written by an author I have read a lot of is Smoke Signals. The scene with the poem about forgiving our fathers.
This is the poem:
How do we forgive our fathers?
Maybe in a dream?
Do we forgive our fathers for leaving us too often or forever
when we were little?
Maybe for scaring us with unexpected rage
or making us nervous
because there never seemed to be any rage there at all.
Do we forgive our Fathers for marrying our mothers?
For Divorcing or not divorcing our Mothers?
And shall we forgive them for their excesses of warmth or
Shall we forgive them for pushing or leaning,
for shutting doors
for speaking through walls
or never speaking
or never being silent?
If we forgive our fathers, what is left?
(the book is quite different from the film, but, each are very good)
