Aboriginal treaty wayne bergmann truth telling needed to be re-enacted, a woman who works with the federal government tells me.
Bergmann told me she was worried her colleagues at the Office of the Chief Public Diplomat wouldn’t be satisfied if they got their demands for access to Indigenous territories met immediately. And despite the lack of funding and attention to Indigenous peoples, this isn’t new.
«We are constantly working on this, it’s been in our mind since day one,» she said.
Bergmann and her partner, John O’Gorman, have been at this in the last four years.
«We’ve gone to government conferences and they try to talk to us,» Bergmann said.
‘It’s so urgent’
The Indigenous people don’t want our government to talk to them about a treaty, said O’Gorman, adding that it’s been a long struggle.
«We’re here at Standing Rock [Indigenous] camp every day working on projects.»
The O’Gormons say the federal government is only interested in what Ojibway people want for their treaty rights: money and oil.
«They need to stop talking in front of us,» said O’Gorman.
O’Gorman said they don’t want to be the «go-to guy» on issues, but they need to be there to educate thos우리카지노e at government, which they often are.
«We don’t want them talking to us unless we can tell them exactl우리카지노y what our interests are and what our problems are.»
Bergmann says they’re always getting complaints from government officials, but she’s adamant she has no problem talking to a government official.
«There’s nothing wrong with a government official speaking with you if we’ve convinced you that talking to them is not a good idea,» she said.
O’Gorman says he’s never had that experience. O’Gorman and Bergmann say they’re always talking to officials who have been given government funding to do a report on how to better promote «integration.»
O’Gorman said he also has told people from the federal government he is at the camp with a coll예스카지노eague and they were told to sit back and let them handle it.
«I didn’t ask that they do anything,» O’Gorman said.
That’s what seems to be happening now, the O’Gorman says.
Bergmann thinks so too.
