First Nations leaders have made mistakes.

What are they, and what should First Nations people do to reverse them?

Not sure if this thread is a trap or not... but the most obvious is corruption /
embezzlement and lack of transparency regarding how funds are used.

I'm open to being suspended for a week or two so you guys can discuss with a guarantee that I won't interject. I'm logging off now. Have fun with your discussion. I look forward to reading it when I get back.

I work in the North, and on First Nations in several provinces.

My observations have concluded that FN leadership is made up entirely of human beings and they are prone to the same shortcomings and disappointments any other human being placed in leadership is prone to.

At the same time those in leadership positions are capable of improving the lot of those they are in power over.

These are just the wild observations of an outsider.

Couldn't have said it better myself!

People are prone to projecting their values and ways of life onto other groups of people. I think this has happened a lot between First Nations and other Canadians.

I was expecting an argument and some inflammatory comments....but alright.

I can't say much, though I feel like people need more context into this before discussing it. This isn't something that directly relates with the topic at hand, but I do have to say that we need to make some ground in terms of reconciling and supporting the indigenous peoples......we don't need another Oka appearing in the next few years.
