Mr Ernie Crey mentioned in his FB comment that: "Some folks want the upcoming inquiry into ‪#‎MMIW‬ to examine the murders of Indigenous men and boys. If this is so, now's the time to speak-up. Keep in mind the terms of reference for the inquiry are not yet established. I think there are two meetings being held in BC regarding the inquiry. The first is in Vancouver on January 13th and the second meeting will take place in Prince George on January 15th. More details are available at the AANDC website." Here is my opinion: Not sure about that. The issues affecting Indigenous males is problematic nevertheless and bringing up the definition of terms of references is noted. I would state that it is not the males that are objectified in the manner and sexual tones that men entice when a female is forced on the street or in abusive situations The Missing women issue is terrible and tragic and I must remind readers that it initially as a result of R Picton picking up our women from the streets of the downtown eastside of Vancouver, taking these women out to his farm outside of Vancouver, were they were , desecrated, dismembered, murdered and some fed to his pigs as a result of fulfilling his and others' physical and sexual desires. It must be noted that the MW Highway of Tears is also a factor that compounded and brought further focus on the issues of Canada's indigenous Missing women. in relation to the issues of the DTES #MW tragedies. In my humble opinion, the differences between male and female issues pertaining to marginalization and stigmatization of Canada's first people goes beyond the colonization , assimilation, apprehension, residential, orphanized actions that defines the reality of cultural genocide of which all Indigenous people of North America experienced and died from past and present. I write this opinion primarily because of how sex defines desire, and why this horrible issues started in the first place. I close this opinion by writing that I do not want to devalue the issues affecting Indigenous men in this country. Canada's first people male population was as well horribly treated by individuals, families, towns, and cities and were physically and sexually abused. The results of these abuses can be seen in the statistics of incarcerated aboriginals in the prison system, on the streets, and in foster homes of our country past and present. Not pretty and not resolvable in governmental inquires or settlements which offer financial compensation. However, our Indigenous females as a result of patriarchal positioning, euro centric cultural conditioning and individual male desires have been pushed into vulnerable situations where they are overcome by the issues that resulted in the MW tragedies and man's wandering desires. I understand Mr Crey's suggestion but perhaps the issues affecting Canada's indigenous men can be changed from the potential reconciliation programs that must be implemented as a result ot TRC's recommendations'. It is ultimately up to changing the mindset of the rest of Canada's euro Canadians and culturally diverse Canadians to push Canada's leaders of Canada's cultural, political, economical and academic apparatuses ideologically, politically and culturally forward to insure that the Canadian government uses all its power to bring closure to the tragic and sordid conditions of Canada's first people, male and female. Miigweech, hiy hiy, Gila Kesla, Hychka, O siem, merci , and thank you for reading and hopefully understanding my humble opinion. As I sing in my song Monsieur Cote, "...Native woman standing on a corner, white man, black man, yellow man, and red man driver around, placing twenty dollars in her hand...:". When I think about this, and even my former actions, it makes me ashamed as a man, because of what has happened to women as a result of our sexual desires. take care all. Thank you Ernie for bringing up this important issue.
