Six Nations Press Release

$1.2 billion in INAC Funding will be cut down to $750 million.

Above is a Six Nations press release dated March 2, 2011.

I like to highlight the point that Chief Montour makes at the end, and it is this:

I’ve always maintained that money appropriated by Parliament for the use and
benefit of Indians is Indian money because

our communities do contribute to the tax base of
Canada

.

I don’t know who is spreading rumours about Natives not paying taxes or that the money we receive is all “White man’s money.” This statement (Although as biased as the stereotypes of Natives not paying taxes), just supports that. I hope people start believing that Natives do not get everything for free.
