Aboriginal Peoples Choice Awards and the Corporate ‘REDWASH’ Agenda – An Open Letter by Clayton Thomas-Muller
Dear Indigenous Peoples Movement,
We need to talk (again) about a serious issue threatening our livelihood and our collective inherit and treaty rights known as corporate sponsorship and the ‘REDWASH’ agenda [of our artistic and education institutions]
Last night the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Awards (APCA) happened in my hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba and some of our brightest artists and their work were recognized.
The APCA show was sponsored by some of of the biggest violators of Indigenous/Treaty Rights in this country, here is a short list of these corporate criminals:
Transcanda Pipeline Corporations (Grand Rapids Mother Pipeline-Alberta, KXL-USA, Energy East-Alberta to New Brunswick pipelines)
Enbridge (Northern Gateway, Great Lakes Pipelines, Line9-Ontario-Main, Alberta Clipper-Minnesota)
Manitoba Hydro (Mega Hydro Expansion-Northern Manitoba)
Royal Bank of Canada (biggest financier of destructive fossil fuel and mining development in Canada most notably tar sands and associated pipelines.)
The Northern Company (food monopoly in northern Canada, price gouging, exploiting food deserts in First Nations Metis and Inuit communities)
If you are Native, no.

Seventy Years message from Leonard Peltier
Greetings my Friends, Relatives and Supporters,
I want to send you all this personal message on what is now my 70th Birthday. I really want to thank you all for your years and years of support and love, I would have never made it this long without your love and support. As you can imagine, it has been a VERY long path. At times, more difficult than I could have ever imagined. I don’t regret any of it for one minute.
