Santé des Premières Nations - L’eau potable manque encore

Santé des Premières Nations - L’eau potable manque encore | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Pour plus du quart des membres des Premières Nations du Québec, l’eau de la principale source d’approvisionnement n’est pas potable à l’année. 54 % des adultes autochtones jouissent d’un revenu de moins de 20 000 $ par année, ainsi que 34 % des ménages. Et les problèmes de consommation de drogue des communautés autochtones du Québec se sont accentués depuis 2002. C’est ce qui ressort de l’enquête régionale sur la santé des Premières Nations du Québec, qui est basée sur des données de 2008, et qui a été rendue publique mercredi.

 

C’est ce que relevait hier Marjolaine Sioui, directrice générale de la Commission de santé et des services sociaux de l’Assemblée des Premières Nations du Québec et du Labrador (CSSSAPNQL), au moment du lancement du document, en compagnie du grand chef de l’APNQL, Ghislain Picard."

 

- Caroline Montpetit, Le Devoir

La grande chorale des Premières Nations

La grande chorale  des Premières Nations | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Dans ses deux premiers romans, Le chemin des âmes et Les saisons de la solitude, l’auteur métis ontarien Joseph Boyden jetait un regard lucide et pénétrant sur l’univers autochtone contemporain. Son dernier-né, Dans le grand cercle du monde, même s’il plonge le lecteur en plein XVIIe siècle, aux débuts de la Nouvelle-France, préserve ce même souci de comprendre de l’intérieur, sans les idéaliser ou les mythifier, le quotidien et la vision du monde des Amérindiens."

"She's so pale": The good and bad of national exposure | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"I am 98% positive that if this NPR article wasn’t accompanied by a photo, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. There is very little commentary challenging my ideas, or what I had to say about Native students transitioning to college–it’s all focused on how I look.

 

You wonder why I care so deeply about representations? This is why I care. Because all those people think that Native identity is tied to looking like something off the side of a football helmet."
