Question: Why is it all white people and barely natives?

Answer: Miigwetch for reading my Blog, Shana. You’d be surprised of those you think are “barely natives” are far more Anishinabe than you think. Most of the people I hang with are from the Midewiwin Lodge or are hard-core pow-wow family. The people I work with are highly motivated, honour and practice their Anishinabe culture. Yes, we do a lot of work with non-native people. However, we are engaged in the re-development of the Anishinabek Nation. That means dealing with government and corporate people. On a positive note, many of the people we work with – including MPs, MPPs and Cabinet Ministers have their hearts in the right place.
