I would like to bring up a very touchy subject. The subject is regarding the corrupt leaders of our First Nation communities. I hope to bring light to the voiceless individuals that pay for these corrupt leaders of our communities. Most individuals will not speak out against these tyrants because they have the ability to take what little they have and there’s no authority that can do anything about it.
My personal experience is that my own Nation refuses to pay for my children’s schooling and refuses to assist with any portion of the $20 000 debt to student loans. There are surrounding Nations that pay for all their families education needs, but are they the selected few from the corrupt leaders? … Ample funds have been specifically set aside for funding adult education for band members. The problem with that is that my band members are selecting a few direct relations to go to school and all others are refused. What pisses me off is that the staff gets to go on an annual vacation every year! These are not leaders!
I’m curious on what kind of corruption happens in your Nation and is there anything we can do about it.
Thanks for your time and I’ll add to this conversation as time goes on.
