The genocide of aboriginal ppl in Canada has by no means been "hidden from history," the subject was dealt with by James Fenimore Cooper in The Last of the Mohicans which was first published in 1826, other publications and movies have similarly broached the subject .. Canadian politics like politics everywhere was then and is now manipulated by Jews, they are behind abortion and white genocide no less than they were behind the killing in Canada.

That's heavy. It's not on the initial page. "Genocide" is on there 48 times but not once does it say "Jews". Where did you find it?

I was born in Victoria, BC. to English/Irish/German heritage, yet I've always loved the NorthWest Coast art, and by extension the culture to understand the art. Actually, I appreciate it all but only like certain types and nations' art. It may seem primitive but actually it has very specific precise rules and symbolism. I even created my own stuff in their style - one of my favourite T-shirt designs and I had big plans for themed projects at Burning Man. I have 80+ books on totem poles and more. In 2004 I was in NYC animating TV commercials (all that's left of my old channel, many are missing for some reaons(s)) but I had also been developing my own projects.

I'd been corresponding with the University of British Columbia's Anthropology department about animating their stories and they turned me onto a studio in Calgary that was about to do just that. While I liked their stuff I actually turned down the opportunity to direct some of their episodes. Reflecting now, I wonder if it was the right move. I was on a high horse and felt they weren't doing it right. Sure they had all First Nations voice actors, but the design, animation, movement, and essence was just a bunch of white guys in a room with computers. Sure they had grants from National Geographic, but I wanted to put the computers in the hands of their people. I could help them learn the animation principles and software, but they could accept or reject these principles and do their own thing. Perhaps perform traditional dances and rotoscope them for a more authentic movement experience. Or whatever... Teach a man to fish...

I spent thousands to get those books before the internet became the resource it is now. I wanted to help tell their stories. But I didn't want to be another white thief, this time of their culture. Maybe this is over-sensitive political correctness crap. Maybe it's respectful reverence. Maybe it's just the best I knew how as a Canuck guy trying to do the proper thing, contacting UBC.
