    {Trina Roache} … It’s a shame in the first place to be denied *Our Rights! Foreigners come here and wear their Symbolic Raiment and have even been allowed into the House of Parliament in Ottawa carrying so-called Ceremonial Dagger(s). The Indigenous Peoples will carry on their Tradition … even if the Matter is held over to the Supreme Court Justice. Foreigners do not dictate to *us how to mandate and/or implement our own Fiduciary Sovereign Tribal System!
