Thanks ,I read it and now understand .In particular the main grievance seems to be that the use of "foreign" names is offensive even though the government and other organizations still use the word Indian and that they have settled on the words" First Nation People" which is yet another set of " foreign words " .Clear as a bell
You see he government came out with these names like Indian and Native etc and that is a sign of oppression. For example, the Canadian government went to South Africa to learn about Homelands under Apartheid. The Canadian government used that thought process for dealing with people on Reservations.
The First Nation people do have words in Cree or Stoney or Nakoda and many many other languages for their tribes and origins. They are however trying to reach a consensus so people like you can stop referring to the as Indians who all wear a head piece and look alike.
