    First of all, the gold and silver would still be in the ground. Indigenous people didn’t have the money or the knowledge to benefit from it. Second of all, Indigenous people do get a portion of what is taken from the land (Attawapiskat – DeBeers). Thirdly, inflation was never considered in the treaties your chiefs signed. There was no such thing. We are not responsible for what goes on on your reserves. YOU are. We would be kicked off the reserve if we even tried to help.

      Asking for Compensation $$ for what??

      There is a major detriment made by the Ferderal to reinstate such half-breeds. Incidentally , their other half is over-seas and only half exist on this turtle Island (First Nations Land). Louie Reil was a traitor and treasonous. He used the First Nations and took up arms. I’m sorry but this is the fact. First Nations should be the ones asking for $$. Please check your blood quantum.
