As Indigenous people we have heard the many half-truths from the federal government and know about the areas of need within our respective reservations on a local and regional basis. We know what we need, and where we lack in resources. As issues arise related to the health, education, natural resources management, and community wellness- especially as it relates to federal Indian, and the treaties that affect our reservation communities, as an Indigenous community- we are failing our People. I won’t go through the historical laundry list of what the government failed to do. However, I want to send a message to readers- both Indigenous and non-Indigenous- that as a society, we need to stop and listen to what we are doing and consider what a decolonization process would “look” like and evaluate how Indigenous communities have been subjected to colonization … we need to wake up and shake the colonized form of governance.
