Fuck You, Indian Residential School.
We saw Indian Horse tonight. It made me angry and my heart aches. I felt rage and sadness. As a result, I have a few choice words to share.
Fuck you, Catholic churches across Canada and the world that thought they knew what was best for our people.
Fuck you, Catholic churches, and your holier than thou religion that was forced upon our people.
Fuck you, Catholic churches and your priests, brothers and nuns who felt it was acceptable to torture, rape and beat defenseless Indigenous kids.
Fuck you, Catholic churches, and your institutions where 1000s upon 1000s of Indigenous kids died and never got to see their families again.
Fuck you, Catholic churches, for ripping my parents from my Grandmas and Grandpas, and kids and parents from each other.
Fuck you, Catholic churches, for taking our language and traditions from my parents so that I didn’t learn them either.
Fuck you, Catholic churches, for taking my Dad from me.
Fuck you, Catholic churches, for hurting my Dad so badly that he kills himself every day with alcohol. FUCK YOU!!!
Fuck you, Canadian government, for your truth and reconciliation bullshit. It means nothing when I see Indigenous people killing themselves every day with drugs and alcohol over years of trauma and pain.
Fuck you, to anyone who thinks Indigenous people should “just get over it.”
Fuck you. Fuck you. FUCK YOU!
The one thing you didn’t take was our people’s strength and resiliency, so fuck you.
