@SmithHarobed - you live on white man's land and every day you should get on your knees in thanks

Some savage squaw got to be a lawyer thanks to affirmative action, and we're all supposed to be impressed. (Looks like she came close to being one of those MMIW though, she got pretty badly bloodied on her lower face, possibly during an attempted rape by a family member).

In response, Harold here wants to "acknowledge he lives on treaty land". He doesn't though, other than the really reductive and frankly useless sense of "somebody signed a treaty involving this patch of land once". Harold better not go to Europe, he'll never be able to even start a conversation as he rattles off all the treaties of where he happens to be standing.

I am grateful and acknowledge that I am standing on Armistice of Cherasco and Convention of Turin and Treaty of Paris and Treaty of Arganjuez and the other Treaty of Paris and Treaty of Stupingi and Treaty of Zurich and Treaty of Turin and the other Treaty of Turin and the other other Treaty of Turin and Treaty of Worms land. Thank you Queen Maria Theresa for your wisdom and grace.

No, of course, Harold lives in Saskatchewan. Indeed, according to the treaty he is explicitly on white man's land. So is Aly Bear, of course. There's only one problem: she's in violation of said Treaty by being on white man's land.

The Cree and Saulteaux Tribes of Indians, and all other the Indians inhabiting the district hereinafter described and defined, do hereby cede, release, surrenderand yield up to the Government of the Dominion of Canada, for Her Majestythe Queen, and Her successors forever, all their rights, titles andprivileges whatsoever, to the lands included within the following limits

Those limits, by the way, don't include the steps of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in Regina that you see Bear standing on in the original tweet.

While we're on the subject, Aly Bear is going to use this posting to "advocate" and foster dissent against His Majesty the King amongst the Red Indian population.

“I never thought about being a chief, but my dad’s been a chief, so I knew what it was about, and it made sense,” Bear says. She adds that using her legal training for advocacy purposes was also appropriate, given her reasons for getting into law in the first place.

“Working for a law firm, you sometimes must be careful about what you say when it comes to advocating, and you may not want to offend people in general or clients,” she says. “But as far as I am concerned, my people are dying, and if I can’t speak up for that, then I’m not in the right place. So being an FSIN chief allows me to do what I want.”

That again puts her in violation of Treaty 4 (emphasis mine)!

And the undersigned Chiefs and Headmen, on their own behalf and on behalf of all other Indians inhabiting the tract within ceded, do hereby solemnly promise and engage to strictly observe this treaty, and also to conduct and behave themselves as good and loyal subjects of Her Majesty the Queen. They promise and engage that they will, in all respects, obey and abide by the law, that they will maintain peace and good order between each other, and between themselves and other tribes of Indians and between themselves and others of Her Majesty's subjects, whether Indians, Half-breeds, or whites, now inhabiting or hereafter to inhabit any part of the said ceded tract; and that they will not molest the person or property of any inhabitant of such ceded tract, or the property of Her Majesty the Queen, or interfere with or trouble any person passing or travelling through the said tract, or any part thereof, and that they will assist the officers of Her Majesty in bringing to justice and punishment any Indian offending against the stipulations of this treaty, or infringing the laws in force in the country so ceded.

Harold should be happy he lives on white man's land. He should be outraged that nobody is putting this bitch in the prison she so richly deserves.
