  • Informative

    Excellent and sad at the same time. I couldn't believe how the Canadian Government treats our Native people. At times it made me angry. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

  • Inside Look

    This book gives the average reader an inside look of reserve life. It puts on display the injustice created by the Indian Act, and how Indigenous people are treated as second rate citizens in Canada. The author highlights that the ordeal she endured is day to day life for the inhabitants in Kash. It reminds us that we cannot be oblivious to the third world conditions found in our supposedly great multicultural country.

  • Please, no more reports or stories......

    Miss Shimo gives the reader insight on what she observed and I have no reason not to believe what she saw and heard. She is not the first or only white person to have witnessed and reported what the conditions are like on a reserve. Unfortunately, i have yet to read a comprehensive proposal on how to fix the problems. One of my best friends is a Mohawk Indian. He and his siblings were born on a reserve and attended primary school there. Their parents were ordinary people ( his words), however they understood that their children needed formal education in order for them to move off the reservation, obtain university degrees and lead comfortable lives. My friend ended his career as a high school principle, one sister a nurse, another sister a school teacher and a brother a mechanic. Yes, there has been grave injustices done to these people but they are not by far the only ones. Since time eternal the strong have subjected the weak. Without going into details on how awful this situation has been mismanaged, it is time to stop doing what we have been doing and start doing it right, Both sides need to take a good long look at what is realy needed to make this work.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Eye opener

    Makes us ashamed to find out there are so many people on reserves treated so badly when we have so much. Excellent reading.
