I grew up on the Tobique and attended High School with Makiseet students. A lot of strong friendships were made during those teenage years and continue to today. There are Maliseet and white marriages which produced a lot interracial families in the area.
There are no longer any full blooded Indians in this area. The nice thing is that the majority of the people live in harmony which is a good thing.
The Europeans, who settled in this area taught the Indians new things and the Indians taught them their customs. I had a friend, when it was discovered she was Indian had her status card presented to her in her Sixties. When she was told about the tax free status she responed by saying, "How is that fair, pay no taxes, what about the white half of me?" She refused the house on the reserve as she already owned one and continued to pay taxes until her death a few years ago. Being half Indian never effected our friendship.
Friendships is what keeps the Harmony on the Tobique.
That's right the friendships between Tobiquers and Maliseets.

Feeds you? Are you referring to the people that don't have food to give their children? Or the ones that are forced to live away from the homes that they were raised in so that they can have a chance at life, don't judge someone or something that you have no idea about just because your ignorant doesnt mean you can pass on that ignorance to others

Stupid? So is it my understanding that you believe natives are stupid? Hahahaha I am a PROUD MALISEET who is currently studying Experimental Physics and is at the top of my class, when you are insulted by a single individual and retaliate like that it shows just how under educated and dumb you are, if ignorance is bliss you must never frown

Hey non-indian, Both the canadian and american governments aren't paying the natives way. They are just helping them by paying back rent for so much land just taken away from us original owners. Thats the way I see it.As far as working to eat and survive, I grew up on a island in the middle of Maine where there was a lot of hatred for my people just because we were what we were,INDIAN Good work was hard to find close by.getting treated like crap and like a second class citizen didn't make working at some places enjoyable at all. I'm not saying they all were like that but some were. Theres a lot of prejudice in towns that are around Indian Reservations, thats why I moved to southern central Maine where equal employment opportunity is more prevelant than around reservations.And may I also add that a lot of us Natives are very sufficient in providing for ourselves and our families. With no help from any government source.
get a life non indian
