Aboriginal People of Canada (and First Nation)
« on: September 17, 2012, 09:29:31 AM »
In the US, the original inhabitants of the nation are no longer called "Indians," the correct term
is Native Americans. In Canada it is Aboriginals. Also, for some bands, First Nation.

Cree
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Languages
Cree, English, French
Related ethnic groups
Métis, Oji-Cree, Ojibwe, Innu

The Cree are one of the largest groups of First Nations / Native Americans in North America, with 200,000 members living in Canada. The major proportion of Cree in Canada live north and west of Lake Superior, in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Northwest Territories. About 15,000 live in eastern Quebec.[1]
In the United States, this Algonquian-speaking people historically lived from Lake Superior westward. Today, they live mostly in Montana, where they share a reservation with the Ojibwe (Chippewa)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Aboriginals

The terms First Peoples and First Nations are both used to refer to indigenous peoples of Canada.[17] The terms First Peoples or Aboriginals in Canada are normally broader terms than First Nations, as they include Inuit, Métis and First Nations. First Nations (most often used in the plural) has come into general use for the indigenous peoples of North America in Canada, and their descendants, who are neither Inuit nor Métis. On reserves, First Nations is being supplanted by members of various nations referring to themselves by their group or national identity. In conversation this would be "I am Haida", or "we are Kwantlens", in recognition of their First Nations ethnicities.[18] In this Act, "Aboriginal peoples of Canada" includes the Indian, Inuit and Métis peoples of Canada.[19]

Inuit women of northern Canada developed a unique, guttural vocal style that involves short, sharp, rhythmic inhalations and exhalations of breath. Inuit sisters Karin and Kathy Kettler, of northern Quebec, Canada, explain the history of the vocal style and illustrate the technique.

(Kelly Lake, BC) The BC Mètis Federation and the Kelly Lake Mètis Settlement Society (KLMSS) worked together to support the first ever BC Mètis Cultural Event that was held in Kelly Lake this past weekend. The Mètis event featured a number of Mètis musicians that were from many locations throughout BC. A number of local Kelly Lake and area residents also took to the stage from time to time to showcase their talent. There were other cultural activities for people to enjoy such as jigging workshops, a display to showcase how to prepare a moose hide, plus authentic Mètis foods such as dried meat, bannock, and others. One of the features this past weekend was special key note speaker Theo Fleury.

FIRST NATIONS ( LAKOTA PEOPLE ) ♥ Heartbreaking ♥   5:54

VIDEO LINK:  http://youtu.be/N3HpvJn9FSc

Uploaded by eursweet7 on Aug 18, 2009
~ THIS VIDEO REPRESENT MY DEEP RESPECT FOR LAKOTA PEOPLE AND ALL NATIVE NATIONS OF AMERICA ~

~ With Love ~ ... http://k002.kiwi6.com/hotlink/kt1qapdy77/amazing_grace.mp3

~ Please share this video with whole world ~


From the movie trailer " First Nations " by " Wind Cave Productions " ... http://www.firstnationsdoc.com/
This video is forced to HD quality so you can watch it in wide screen.

Any copyrighted material in this video is copied for educational purposes only.

Production Notes :

" They made us many promises, more than I can remember. But they kept one. They promised they would take our land...and they took it." --Chief Red Cloud.

The lack of understanding between cultures is always related to ignorance.

We all have many questions about one another we would ask if we could or if we had the courage.

Some these unanswered questions about Native Americans that have lingered for generations are the subject of this film .

Many questions have been blown away by the wind, and many answers have burned in the fires.

To get to know ones' neighbor is not to become a neighbor, but rather to learn to respect him and his culture, his roots and what he is.

The Story :

This documentary tells the story of the meeting between a young Native American from the Lakota tribe, Moses Brings Plenty who is a descendent of the Lakota, and a 12-year-old French boy named Eli Torelli has come here to learn about the Native Americans that fascinated him in France.

One night, Eli dreams of a native man, and the next day Moses Brings Plenty comes to his school to lecture. Moses will become Eli's guide, bringing him to his reservation in Pine Ridge South Dakota, bringing to light and introducing to him the world of the Lakota elders, and the reality of life on a reservation in the present day.

Eli, who is sincere and forthright in only the way children can be, will receive, from the elders, heritage from the past, learning their history, their suffering and their culture.

At the same time he will discover what the fruits of this history are and witness their everyday life on a reservation and the problems they have to deal with from day to day.

Brings Plenty and Eli will continue their spiritual voyage in the past exploring the ghastly history of Wounded Knee in 1890 up to the present . Eli will learn that the problems besetting his friend Moses' people, actually affect some of the of Native Americans of our times.

What to tell ...

Most of you have been living here on this planet under this capitalist illusion for many centuries by thinking the money is in need to live your life ( accept few, like the Native American Nations or the nations living their simple lives in far away lands, they have been telling you and warning you about this negative events for a long time ... but you never want to listen to them, until now ) ... Now you can see your money world is evil and the Earth is bleeding under this sick influence. Not just the people, but whole Earth needs the cure. In fact we do not need to look for some new solutions to survive, because we just need to go back to the original natural time where we all belong. The best way how to do it now is just to look around and ask some of the native elders and they will show you the exact true road where to go and what to do. They have been told by the " sky ancestors " to keep the positive knowledge for you to survive.

Aho !

Inuit Elders tell NASA Earth Axis Shifted

The sky has changed, claim Inuit elders
The Inuit elders note climate change in the melting glaciers, deterioration of sealskin, and burns on seals, and disappearing sea ice. The attribute these changes in climate to changes in the sky.The tribal elders claim that the sun no longer rises where it used to rise. The days heat up more quickly and last longer. The stars and moon are also in different places in the sky and this affects the temperatures. This is a population that relies on the placement of the moon and stars for their survival as they live in total darkness during part of the year.
The elders say they can no longer predict the weather, as they have been able to in the past. They observe that warmer winds are changing the snow banks, making their ability to navigate overland more difficult. Polar bear populations are increasing, which causes the bears to wander into the Inuit neighborhoods.
What scientists report
On April 20, 2011, CNN News reported that an earthquake moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet and shifted the Earth on its axis. They quoted Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey, as saying, “At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass.”
They quoted the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy, that estimated that “the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).” Astronomers concur that there has not been a shift in the earth’s rotational axis, but that there have been subtle polar shifts over the last ten years. This is a change in what is called the figure axis.
These changes are caused by continental drift, which has been shifting the location of the North Pole towards the south about 10 cms per year for the last 100 years. Teams at the University of Texas using NASA’s GRACE satellite found that the North Pole’s normal drifting to the south changed in 2005 and since then, the drift has been eastward. They detected a 1.2 meter change from 2005 to 2013. They conclude that the shift is caused by climate change caused by global warming.
About the Inuit or Eskimo people
The Inuit people inhabit the far northern reaches of the Canadian Arctic and have done so for centuries. The area they inhabit is almost continually frozen under a layer of permafrost. For months at a time, their days begin and end in darkness. A nomadic people, they built tents or teepees of caribou skin in warmer months, and lived in igloos in the winter. Previously, they were known as Eskimo. The word Eskimo is from a word in their language that means “eater of raw meat.” This group of Arctic dwellers has now been renamed Inuit, a word that means “the people.” Inuk is the word to describe one member of the tribe, or “one person.” The Inuit speak many different dialects that all stem from the Eskimaleut or Inuit-Aleut language. They are primarily hunters, relying on Arctic wildlife for their survival. They fish, hunt sea mammals, such as seals and walrus, and land mammals, like Arctic hare and caribou and use seal skin and blubber for clothing, tents, and fuel. Most of their diet is made up of raw meat as there is very little plant life in their environment.

Thanks for posting this, Barb.

There is a video, produced in 2011, IIRC, by Inuit videographer/filmmaker, Zechariah Kunuk (sp), in which he interviews a number of Inuit elders who claim what your have posted in your article.  Interestingly, each of these elders has a slightly different thing to tell, such as one talking about where the sun rises(rose), or another talking about other changes, but the overall picture is the same:  based on their observations in the past, compared to their current observations, they believe the Earth's axis or pole has shifted.

After I made my own discoveries of the changing shadow of the sun on "posts in the ground" from December, 2011 to December, 2012, and realized the Earth's axis of rotation must have shifted, I scoured the internet looking for someone who had seen the same thing.  I finally came upon the video showing these Inuit elders being interviewed, so I emailed the filmmaker, Mr. Kunuk.  He did not answer, but he apparently forwarded my letter to a professor in some Canadian university, who did write to me.

I do not believe that the "changes" are over by any means.
