Fair treatment?


I recently heard about the Eskimo disc number, and that a singer has written a song about them.

I have been told that in the 1950s and 1960s, some Inuit who worked for white agencies, especially the church and the RCMP, thought they could control everyone and gave food and clothing only to their own relatives, and that is why the system was started. Should make a song about that.

I wish we had a fair system today so that all the people could have it easier. The same people always get the free new houses and our bosses always get the free machines and boats without being fair to everyone. Check the records if you don’t believe me.

I think it would help prevent suicides if people were treated fairly by our own Inuit bosses and elected councillors.
