Aboriginal Day 2014: Meet me!
I am going to be attending three Aboriginal Day events in the lower mainland of Vancouver, British Columbia on June 21 2014. Plan to record the events and speak to as many First Nations people as possible. I would love to meet you there too. I want to know about you and your own experience being a First Nation’s person and what you think needs to change in our communities. Please share this if you are First Nation’s and want to meet me personally. According to last year’s rants by the racist one we all know and feel sorry for, she was planning to be in attendance at the Richmond one and I will be interested to see if she actually does show up. Together we make change, alone we are only part of the problem. Thanks everyone.
