Please see the bulletin board at the side entrance for myths 8 and 9 that are identified in Bob Joseph’s ebook “Dispelling Common Myths about Indigenous Peoples.” Myth #8 “There’s no connection between Indigenous unemployment and Indigenous health and social problems.” REALITY: There is a very real and observable connection between these things. Myth #9 “Missing and murdered Indigenous women brought it upon themselves.” REALITY: Decades of government policies have wreaked havoc on traditional Indigenous family relations and destroyed communities, leaving many Indigenous women and girls impoverished, demoralized, and extremely vulnerable to exploitation and attack. Murdered and missing Indigenous women did not bring this upon themselves. For more information and resources, please see the bulletin board at the side door, or visit Indigenous Corporate Training Inc. at https://www.ictinc.ca/ or the Indigenous Relations Academy at www.indigenousrelationsacademy.com.
