Reconciliation for Longhouse Voices for Reconciliation with British Columbia and Canada
Our longhouses, was just that' a home for a Hereditary Chieftain and his peoples - now its viewed as a place of dance, and all the Hereditary Chieftain and families are pushed into poverty by band policy and Aboriginal Affairs Canada. Timber being sold to China and foreign countries, because of elective and band management debt. We seek a Voice on all Matters Concerning our Lands, Salish Sea's, Economy, Housing, Family Laws; Native Women carry the World of Law, passed down for over 10,000 years. We need your support today, before its all wiped out! Indigenous Women want a "voice" and rise above oppression the Policies have placed on them! Management of band policies have changed, giving strangers opportunities to abuse our longhouse social-economic way of life! We want the abuse to end. Giving voice to Native Women of the Longhouse of Coast Salish Territory! Aho'....

Grandchildren of Hereditary Chieftains, and especially the women of the Longhouse of Cowichan have been rendered voiceless under the Indian Act on all matters concerning:

1) Lands, Sea, Economy, Housing, Family, and Reserve Policy

2) We seek to engage Elders, and Cultural People to come forward to a forum to become documented on the Past Indigenous Culture, Names, and Places

3) We need your support to have this Forum of Engaging them; please support, care, and donate!

4) Social - Economic issues on-off reserve; where have we been and where are we going? 

5) Oral history that matters, and giving Voice to Indigenous Women of the Longhouse.

6) Native women rising of the Coast Salish Territory! Culture Matters....

7) Supporting one another, without conflict or discrimination; to become a voice!

Oh, this is sad, Sharon. What a beautiful, lost tradition. I hope it gets stopped and that at least some of them, or most of them, will remain so that many future generations can enjoy them. Much luck with your fundraiser, as always.
