    “I am Aboriginal.Ive seen Aboriginal people all over the world.They are still suffering horror today yet they are way more caring&selfless than we are in Canada.We can't stay victims! It's like drinking poison ourselves but expecting things to get better. Before Chief Seattle was executed, his last words to Aboriginal people were: "Our people will never stand unless we become concerned with the rights&civil libteries of ALL people & NOT just for ourselves." Miigwech, Ekose.” — Familylove, 11 Jul 2013
