Bringin a bit of the #westcoast to our coast for tomorrow's  #indigenouspeoplesday. After all it seems likely that at this time of year our Coast Miwok brothers and sisters could have been eating #dungenesscrab ... also - it's crab!

In all seriousness, please take some time to reflect on what we are thankful for AND the true heritage of "Thanksgiving" in these lands and what that did to those #firstnations peoples, not the mythos of happy pilgrim meal sharing malarkey.

This Months focus is The Effects War has on the Land. In many First Nations teachings, we learn the importance of the land and the duty individuals have to protect it. When speaking about war the focus tends to be on human casualties, but there is a another causality of war that is overlooked the #forgottenvictim, The Land. Using the teachings of the First Nations, we will be exploring more about the effects of War on the environment and what we can do to help. It is our duty to protect the land because: " The Earth was not given to us by our parents, but loaned to us by our Children" - First Nation Proverb .

[Its taken me weeks to get this post up and I love that this evoked such feeling and contemplation in me. Missing, the opera is based on the tragedy of over 1,200 missing and murdered First Nations, Inuit and Métis women and girls in Canada. It explores the devastating losses felt by the communities and families, both First Nations and non-First Nations, of the victims. 
It encapsulates the story of two women who represent so many – one who survives and one who does not. The tale is brilliantly executed and reaffirms the human voice as a powerful vehicle. The visuals, the storytelling, the words, the music and the emotions all came together to move me and every other attendee. There was not a dry eye in the theatre. 
Its playing in Victoria, later this month.

"Looking unto Jesus" -A class in penmanship at the Red Deer Indian Industrial School, Red Deer, Alberta, ca.
-1914 or 1919. "It is a misconception that Aboriginal children arrived at the residential schools uneducated. They had received a previous education from their parents and Elders that enabled them to thrive in Aboriginal cultures. Traditionally, Aboriginal children begin their education at birth, when they learn how to be members of their communities. Traditions and ceremonies play a significant role in helping them develop the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of their identities. Contrary to the European model of corporal punishment, native education favours guidance and mentoring, an approach that respects the integrity and sanctity of the child. The three Ls of Looking, Listening, and Learning also emphasize experiential learning, and storytelling conveys cautionary messages meant to regulate bad behaviour. Aboriginal children would have felt violated by the harsh methods and rigid structure of the residential schools"

Best thanksgiving news ever ❤ #Nespelem, WA— Dr. Michael E. Marchand, Chairman of the Confederated Tribes of the #Colville Reservation, and Shelly Boyd, #ArrowLakes Facilitator for the Tribes, are applauding an historic resolution passed by the Regional District of Central #Kootenay on November 16, 2017.

In a near unanimous decision, the District directors voted not to send a letter of support for the establishment of a Westbank reserve in Fauquier, located in the middle of Sn̓ ʕay̓ ckstx (Arrow Lakes) traditional territory, and instead called on the Canadian government to suspend the granting of any reservations to other First Nations within Arrow Lakes territory, and to reverse the “error” of the 1956 declaration of extinction. “This is yet another historic day for all #Sinixt people, building on the landmark Desautel decision, where, for the first time since 1956, a government in Canada has formally recognized the existence of the Arrow Lakes people and our traditional territory” Chairman Marchand said today. “This is a very important step in the reconciliation process, and we commend the courage of the Regional District for passing this resolution”. On March 27, 2017, Justice Lisa Mrozinski found Richard Desautel not guilty of hunting for elk as a non-resident of British Columbia and without license, ruling that he was exercising a constitutionally protected right to hunt in Sinixt traditional territory in Canada. The Crown’s appeal to the B.C. Supreme Court was argued in early September in Nelson, and a decision is expected in early 2018. “The truth prevailed over fear and division at the Regional District meeting,” Shelly Boyd said today. “As the judge confirmed in the Desautel case, the truth is that Sn̓ ʕay̓ ckstx people were never extinct and we have never left our traditional territory and the waters that are its lifeblood. We look forward to building cooperative relationships with #FirstNations and government, and to continue working with the local community to make sure that everyone is aware of the truth of our history and existence.” #lakesband #kettlefalls #ferrycounty #colvillenationalforest #slocanlake #slocanvalley #kettleriver #7generations

Have you been looking for ways to stay active as the weather gets cooler? Fall leaves provide great opportunities for physical activity! You can take long walks to see the beautiful fall colors. Once the leaves have fallen, raking is good exercise. You can also join an indoor sports league, such as basketball, handball, or bowling, to stay warm while exercising!

"Crystal methamphetamine — known on the street as jib —  can be snorted, eaten, smoked or injected. The high can last as long as 12 hours. It's addictive, cheap and easy to find on the Downtown Eastside. And its use is on the rise, B.C. health officials say.

Front-line doctors say they're struggling to treat patients addicted to crystal meth because of the effects of the drug, which include psychosis, paranoia, hallucinations and aggression. Those symptoms — coupled with the fact that there are no dedicated pharmacological treatments for meth addiction —  make it difficult for doctors to get through to their patients, let alone begin the process of trying to help them quit the highly addictive drug.

Since 2005, there has been a 600 per cent increase in the use of the drug at Vancouver's supervised injection facility. According to numbers from Vancouver Coastal Health, 4,981 people injected the drug at the Insite facility in 2005. By 2016, that number soared to 35,238.

Long before the potent opioid fentanyl made headlines for contaminating street drug supplies — and killing thousands of people in B.C. — Dr. Susan Burgess was treating patients grappling with their addiction to methamphetamine. She said the problem is getting worse. "We're still at a loss with how to deal with [methampthetamine] in our clinics," said Burgess, a physician with the Vancouver Native Health Society on the Downtown Eastside.

There is no dedicated treatment for methamphetamine addiction. Unlike heroin or other opioids, there aren't effective forms of substitution therapy, such as methadone or suboxone, to treat it..." #addicted #addiction #awareness #vancouver #vancity #downtowneastside #humanrights #crystalmeth #firstnations #poverty #canada150 #britishcolumbia #toronto #ontario #mentalhealth #government #eastvan #seattle

∆ Ziggurat Of Agargouf ▲ Iraq ▲ Kassite Civilization
"Dur-Kurigalzu was a city in southern Mesopotamia near the confluence of the Tigris and Diyala rivers about 30 kilometres (19 mi) west of the center of Baghdad. The town of Dur Kurigalzu was founded by the Kassite King Kurigalzu I in the late 15th or early 14th century BC and is situated along an east-west-trending limestone ridge between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The prefix Dur- is an Akkadian term meaning "fortress of", while the Kassite royal name Kurigalzu, since it is repeated in the Kassite king list, may have a descriptive meaning as an epithet, such as "herder of the folk (or of the Kassites)". The city contained a ziggurat and temples dedicated to Sumerian gods, as well as a royal palace. The ziggurat was unusually well-preserved, standing to a height of about 170 feet (52 m). The hill of Aqar Quf is dominated by the most visible monument at the site, a ziggurat devoted to the main god of the Babylonian pantheon, Enlil. The surrounding temple-complex has only been excavated on the south-west side of the ziggurat." #unearthing #moundbuilders #stonemason #earthworkers #civilization #architects #universouls #astronomy #astronomers #science #archeology #RootsAndCulture
