I am a cree from Alberta and I am a freelance writer.  I have written for the Windspeaker, First Perspective, and the First Nations Drum.  I found this site in search for places online where first nations people come together to discuss things.  It is actually very limited.  Anyway, i'm not sure what to include in my post so I will put a little poem and a link to my website.  My website doesn't sell anything, it is very simple with some news stories and forums to talk about protests and activism and native issues.  Thanks.

Culture

 do the trees fall or die,
do the birds call or cry?

we no longer speak the language,
we no longer feel the anguish
 
we're supposed to be off-red
the color of soil,
we get so black inside
the color of oil.

there is a law
there is culture,
but there are claws and vultures.

 one day we will die as a people
or we will die as people
 
our culture,
is locked in a museum.
