The other day I stumbled upon another city event – one of those “multicultural” events that the City of Toronto and the Province of Ontario finance generously with money we don’t have. On Dundas Square they had a National Aboriginal History Month presentation with live music. It was hard to link the rock music played on the stage with the aboriginal history (I don’t remember any Indian claiming that he invented the rock music).
The most interesting part of the presentations were the tents, where they sold various merchandise. Other than the usual dreamcatchers, moccasins and other stuff that you can find in Chinatown, I saw a few things tailored to the local Indian population.
They presented the Six Nations, an American Indian tribe, which was allowed to settle in Ontario. The hospitality didn’t stop them from bullying the locals for many years. The Six Nations extremists were behind the brutal occupation in Caledonia, during which they terrorized people and destroyed the local economy. Naturally, the Mohawk “warrior flag,” symbol of the native brutality, was prominently featured among the kitschy items:
Of course, mocking Canada is also acceptable among those people, as this defiled Canadian flag shows:
You could also buy Six Nations clothes and umbrellas, with a matching Mohawk “warrior” umbrella for the ladies.
And preparing for the future takeover of Toronto, they were also selling “Indian Parking Only” signs:
The only good thing in the display was a lazy aboriginal Chihuahua (which incidentally was also for sale).
It was nice to see that many Indians work trying to sell things. However, it was also amusing to see how those “proud keepers of the land” don’t mind adopting the despised materialistic methods of the “American colonialism” to make money. Putting the supposedly sacred Indian symbols on cheap Made-in-China kitsch by the Indians themselves shows how phony their “culture” is. It is time we stopped wasting money on that nonsense. If that culture has any value and is really followed, it should be able to sustain itself without throwing taxpayers’ money at it.
