... speaking of terms last evening with friends and a few others at the café Bistro, was very interesting. We stumbled on one specifically which is the "Indians" term that some people still use publicly toward the First Nations. We were laughing with each other saying that Native people are not coming from India and that this term was also widely regarded as old-fashioned and very inappropriate.
Indigenous people are most likely called, The Original (AbOriginal), Native people or as well as First Nations. But not erroneously referred as "Indians" like the first Europeans people when they mistakenly thought they had reached India in the fifteenth century. First Nations people have lived in the Northern Hemisphere for thousands of years and inhabited the area long enough before Europeans people "discovered" it.
(Absolutely no offense at all to the European's folks here)
Then starting to enumerate the most common North Faces groups in Canada: The Iroquois, Mohawk, The Cherokee, Sioux, Shawnee, Ojibwe, Light Skinned Cree (the largest indigenous tribe in Canada), Cheyenne, Mi'kmaq, among others.
To finally introduce myself to a few new friends in the café Bistro by saying; Hey btw, I'm Mohawk, but please call me Ben or Adrien. Cheers!
Instead of peddling his utopian vision for democracy in Ukraine, he might want to start with first trying to uphold his own lofty values and standards at home rather than doing everything that he seemingly can to erode them.

A First Nation in Alberta says new archival work has helped explain numerous discoveries of human remains that it now believes are the unmarked graves of residential school students.
Saddle Lake Cree Nation revealed on Tuesday that since 2004, there have been numerous discoveries of partial remains that were accidentally excavated while new graves were being dug in the community's cemetery, which is near the former Blue Quills residential school site.
Saddle Lake Cree Nation is about 170 kilometres northeast of Edmonton.
While community members who discovered the remains were at the time unsure about what they found and reburied them, a team tasked with investigating burial sites connected to the school now believes it's been uncovering the shallow, unmarked graves of children between the ages of four and 10 who perished at the school.
"There were children-sized skeleton remains that were excavated. None of these skeleton remains were in caskets," Saddle Lake council member Jason Whiskeyjack said at a news conference on Tuesday.
The policy began in 1992 as an outright ban on gay men donating blood following a blood scandal where some 2,000 people were infected with HIV. Many countries instituted similar donation bans during the Aids epidemic of the 1980s. Experts have found that the bans had little effect, since blood is now systematically screened in advance for viruses such as HIV and Hepatitis B and C. Health Canadalifted restrictions on gay men donating blood, a move Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said was “good news for all Canadians” but had taken too long. As of 30 September, prospective donors will not be asked about their sexual orientation during the screening process but instead about whether they engage in any higher-risk sexual behaviours.

Canadians, literally minding their own business...
Americans: You know you descend from us right? technically you’re still a part of us, why do we even have a border between us?
Canadians: You know both of us descend from Britain right?
Britain: Ya we should still own the both of you!
Canadian: you know you literally descend from Rome right? you do realize that don’t you? Do you also realize that Romans were heavily influenced by Greek culture, Romans literally copied and pasted religions and myths from the Greeks. As well as the fact that the Greeks were derived from the Mycenaeans and Minoans.
Also the Canadian: We are not own, because we were all someone else, but we willed ourselves into being because of the bloodshed of history. But we are not you, and you are not us. We are different by our current standards and cultures. We will not yield to a melting pot because we are similar, we are different shades of colors, different tones that make our whole picture beautiful.
Greeks, probably shedding a tear: There you go, getting all philosophical again... I’m so proud, they must get it from me <3
