"It's like in the moments just before you're killed by hitmen. But I bet it's not unlike when you're on the subway and you realize that a mariachi band is about to start playing. Just that brief moment where you're reading and you're like, oh, a guitar player. No, another guitar player. No, and accordion player. Oh no. This is the loudest thing in their world. I was really excited. A lot of people showed up. They told me that it was a big theater and I thought that no one would come. So thank you for coming. I wanted to take ads out in the paper. Do something to a tot. So I get in the New York Post or something. The New York Post is my favorite newspaper. I think it's great. I read it every day. I like reading the New York Post because reading the New York Post is like talking to someone who heard the news. And now they're trying to give you the gist. It's like, you get the same amount of information if you grab someone on the street and you were like, what happened today? It's a bourbon queen. All right, thank you. I'd rather it's like someone read a better newspaper and now they're trying to text you everything they can remember. Doesn't have to be right. Just has to be short. I really do love the post. I read it a lot and there's a hierarchy in the New York Post, different people that they like and different people that they don't like. And if you pay attention, you can start to identify some of the New York Post rankings that they have. The number one thing that you can be in the eyes of the New York Post is an angel. And angel is a child who has died. That is the best thing that you can be in the eyes of the New York Post. The less amount of time you live, the better. The eyes of the posts. After that, under an angel is a hero. A hero is any man who does his job. You know, a lot of times see headlines that are like hero tutor teaches after school and you're like, yeah. Dan George is the bottom of the spectrum. There are pervs. Curves touch talks. Todds are angels who haven't died yet. There are no children in the eyes of the New York Post. You're either a cat or you're dead in your own angel. I did leave one out. Sorry. Above perv is a Bozo. A Bozo is any man who cheats on his wife. That guy's a Bozo. I remember seeing a headline when Tiger Woods cheated on his wife and it says, Tiger says he's sorry. But elin says, beat it Bozo. No, she did not. She is from another country. And even if she was from this country, no one has said Bozo in a thousand years. Who is your source on that New York Post? Some tiny old lady that chain smokes all day long. They met her in a parking garage and they were like, madge, give us the scoop. What did Elon say to Tiger? She told him to beat it, Bozo. Before I had my double mastectomy, I would sometimes be mistaken for a man. And that's fine. But then after the surgery, I went up a bit. I was going through security at the airport. And they said, female assist, which means they have to have a female officer, pat me down extra. And so this woman comes over and she comes in, just and I didn't have reconstructive surgery. I just, she was like. She didn't feel a boo or. A bra or anything. And she said, hold on a second. And she walked only maybe this far away. And she whispered something to the other officer. And I just heard him say, yes, I'm positive. So she comes back over and. This time she's stopped before she touched me. She looked up. Am I face? She really took it in. But apparently, that was not helpful. At all. And she said, hold on a second. She walks back over and whispers something again to the officer, and he just says, yes. And the thing is, I knew exactly what was happening. And I knew that all I needed to do was speak. And then she would know that I was female. But I just did not want to help her out. At all. I was enjoying the awkwardness so much. I just love sitting there like. She finally came back over and said, you're good. And I walked out saying, thank you. Thank you. My old girl. Thanks for bringing her off to. My girlfriend left me, man. It's hard to believe. You know what's weird? She said she loved me, but when she left, she took the TV, the bed and the VCR. Guess when we were at home and she was saying, I love you. I love you. I love you. I was standing in front of either of the TV, the bed, or the VCR. Like an idiot. I thought. I love you, you, big 19 engineer. Thanks, honey. So she can't have. Come home because she was gone. It's okay that she left, dude. I don't care. What am I gonna do get bitter?

This is George Tibbets. Dan. George. Hi. All this way in, Um Ultimately We can be angry with our leadership and I am but ultimately we also have to be angry with ourselves because we elect and choose our leadership and we don't demand enough. Of them. And How many people does it take? Being becoming victim of horrendous crimes like this to get society to change who they put in charge of this governor lost me a long time ago when he came out within the first few months of his administration that he doesn't believe in the death penalty. And suspended it. And if anybody deserves the death penalty, it's that person that's behind bars right now. Which leads me I want to do a shot out to the police. Over the last year we've heard defund the police and all these ridiculous things. The police have been wonderful. They apprehended The perpetrator within a day. Uh, And we can't thank them enough.

Perhaps it is the thought that people will be sufficiently awakened to recognize the fact that the decision you make at the ballot box. The decision you make when you choose leaders and you, you you vote for certain bills and measures. Understand this. There's no cash bail business. The voters voted on that last year and said no.

"In you realize that intergenerational trauma it it's embedded i looked to the hard work ahead of us addressing the real impact of intergenerational trauma the loss of control in social life the loss of control in spirituality or religion the loss of control in our health in our language. You know when we're doing the gravesites rejuvenation rate now. I'm lake three steps ahead. Thinking our children in our children yet on borne intergenerational trauma is still happening hud we change it to intergenerational transfer to make sure that that vertical value lineage is giving stronger from grandma to mum to daughter granddaughter. And you know the gravesite is is really tough right now. But you know. I'm already thinking hotter. We use this momentum this moment to change to intergenerational transfer to make sure that as chief dan george said in elementary confederation that we can be the greatest nation that we can be within a hundred years. You know so no i. I drive on that as my motivation to to get through this moment focusing on the great site chief cabinets the There's two things in canada. They've always maintained that have really hurt. First nations people In a in a big way and we still feel the intergenerational trauma effects of these things and The first thing of course is the residential school policy in which i say was a genocide because little children are put into these institutions. Everything good about being a first nations is no good. You're beautiful long hair is cut. Your language was forbidden. Your cut off from your family your community yourself your nation and everything good about like even yourself is no good you know this was taught and then physical abuse mental abuse sexual abuse and we see the intergenerational trauma reflected in the forty thousand children in foster care the jails are disproportionate of our people in jails in high youth. Suicide rates list goes on and on and the other thing was the indian act eighteen. Seventy six indian act you know which allowed the control of first nations people. We couldn't leave the reserve without a permit. Didn't have access to a lawyer with till nineteen fifty. One didn't even vote couldn't vote in federal elections till nineteen sixty one and it broke down are hereditary chiefs inter-clan systems and outlawed sundance pot. Let all these between those two things. The the residential school system in the indian act in that internet basically allowed for the exploitation of our land and territory and resources so people need to understand that those are the two things now going forward in spite of all those things are resilient should be celebrated but i always ask our guest as well. What provides you hope. National feminine approach is kind of in a personal matter of my journey so far. Might my dad made that My biggest inspiration him in my mom and my dad used to have this. This nail beside our door used to put our house key on it than one time on ten. I seen them put the house key on this nail in put a sweater over it in after he opened the door. And i'm like dad. Why do you put the key there. Someone's going to break in. He says you know my boy. We don't walk with our head up around here. And i'm like what you mean bad like i could see it there. You know in you know just just what inspires me is. My dad pushed me and pushed me and pushed me my entire life to show this world. That indian can succeed at a white man's way if that's education if it's golf in on my mom a few years ago i took her to bertel. That's where she went to residential school and she didn't want to go but deep down. I knew she did. She needed closure. She told me her residential school in no the stories that she she told me oven. You know from from that tour. I i realized that my mom is my my warrior nece world on on how she raised me and you know realizing what what kind of life she actually had to go through any. I'm optimistic of the future. No i got a call. Last week from phil fontaine and unifil was the first one to really go public in the nineties about residential school. In you know he told me you speak for me. You keep speaking. And i'm like holy cow like this is so inspiring. Like thank you fill in. You know. I i you know i. I bring hope as i look at kids today in. I'm like okay. The past we cannot change. The present is where we're at. I will focus on the future. I will show this world that someone with a brain. That has a cheeky crease. Smile onto the while in control. It's a really good res- jokes can walk into any room in this world and not change my attitude of who i am from the meserve from a first nation and they will still accept me as i am because i. I don't want the next generation to have to try prove themselves. I want them to be dreamer. So you know. I'm inspired for the future. Because my parents built me to be who i am today and as a chief it i think it's the greatest job in the world. It's not an easy job. But i want to make sure that we have more dreamers moving forward and that that is what motivates me every day chief cabinets. That's a very powerful message to to to close are coming podcast on.

"If the comedy came from an Indian character, it was probably played by an Italian or a white actor or wage, not a Native American. So I'm inclined to believe that without even researching it, okay? I thought his character was great. I thought his acting was really good and I, I really just he was seeing, like, a guy I wanted to spend more time with, you know what I mean? Oh, he's fantastic. I mean, Clint Eastwood, obviously, loved him to death. I think you watched the same documentary. I did. Hell hath. No, fury, that's on the DVD, okay? Yeah. And he goes back a little bit in the book by Richard schickel that chapter. It said something that I didn't remember he claims that when he first met Chief Dan George he was completely dressed in a Subaru. Like he had white suit, white shirt, white tight, like he was, this is completely dressed and white and he apparently had some Swedish chick companion with him. That was like taller than him and birth. During the filming of the, the movie, there are a couple of days where it was obvious, where he was seventy-seven at that point. So, he's running around with some Swedish Jack, and doing this movie off and apparently, like, going out with her nights and like dancing, like the man was amazing. Yeah, I just want to mention if anybody listening to this wants to just have a good time and just read about something kind of cool. Look up Chief Dan George just do a Google search on them. You'll find some really interesting stuff. Absolutely cool. He's he's he damn near Steeles, he pretty much steals the picture. Yeah, he's just great. I mean, with the whole cast is pretty good and I got to something that Sandra Locke. Not, I'm not the biggest fan of kind of accepted that she was a package deal with Clint. When Clint Eastwood movie more often than not, she was going to pop up in it. And that's okay. I thought she was very good in this. Yeah, I mean, I think this was her second film. I'm forgetting the name of the first film, but I thought she was at that, she was quite good. She was well-cast wage. Fit with the character was supposed to be. I think once again there's so many notes in it, so many things to talk about this film and the pre-production and production of this film is equally as fascinating and compelling as Thursday, fantastic film itself filled Kaufman was supposed to. He wrote this screen co-wrote, the screenplay, he he's the one who added the fact that Sonia cherniss, just she adapted the book. And in the book, The Girl legs are not in throughout the entire story. And one of the things that that Kaufman did was he made the pursuit by the redlegs go throughout the entire film. That keep up the suspense and drama and reached gratifying inclusion. But she was also supposed to direct the film. He did, he scouted locations? He did all the pre-production and then apparently, and the reason why I bring this up is apparently in my truck. Read the chapter in the book you just moving too slow for Clint's Comfort level because Clint he put up the money to for the book rights himself and he was the producer and he just thought he was just taking too long and they were yep..
The continuing Wet'suwet'en pipeline dispute
"This is native America calling. I'm Tara Gate. Would this morning. Ontario provincial police moved in on the tiny data. Mohawk railway blockade taking several of those standing in solidarity with some of the whistle whitten hereditary chiefs and those backing them into custody. This area is recognized as traditional Mohawk territory. It's the latest action in the ongoing fight over the coastal gasoline pipeline plan for would so it in traditional territory in British Colombia. This Mohawk Stan is one of many in solidarity with the movement to try and stop this pipeline route. The four hundred mile pipeline is proposed to carry natural gas across British Columbia twenty-first nations along the pipeline route have signed on to the project but some hereditary chiefs of the wit. Sohan are opposed to the main Opposed and maintain. They have say over what happens because of a nineteen ninety seven court decision on Friday Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Said the barricades must come down. Canadians have been patient. Our government has been patient but it has been two weeks and the barricades need to come down the issue. We face today began with disagreement over a provincial natural gas pipeline in British Columbia. What was a matter of provincial? Jurisdiction has since turned into a broader question on the nature and extent of indigenous rights resulting in blockades across the country. That's why the federal government had to involve itself directly and a week and a half ago both to address these underlying issues and restore sale rail. Service Flea engaged from day. One are ministers have engaged directly with indigenous leaders and premieres are work was always focused on finding a peaceful and lasting resolution in a way that builds trust and respect among parties involved. That focus does not change. This is a complex issue and the situation we now find ourselves in is a delicate one. History has taught us how governments can make matters worse if they fail to exhaust all other possible avenues when some urged us to use force immediately we chose dialogue and mutual respect when others urged us to give up. We extended a hand in good faith. And what you just heard comes from audio from C. TV. We'll hear more about all of this coming up here but when we talk about different stances that tribal nations are taking. We want to hear from you today. we'll also hear from multiple sides of the issue and we want to hear your thoughts again. What do you think about this? Fight over gas pipeline in Canada. Do you really to it. Something that maybe you even faced in urination Here in the States. All opinions are welcomed. The number is one eight hundred nine six two eight four eight. That's also one eight hundred nine nine native and today we're going to start off by saying hello to chief Dan George. He is an elected chief of the Burns Lake Ben and our pleasure to have him here. Chief George Welcome. Thank you for inviting me to Data American calling. Thank you very much. I appreciate you being here and Chief. George tells a little bit about where things stand with you. Your band signed onto the coastal. Gasoline pipeline Tells us a little bit about why that decision was made well if you know northern BC we've had a mountain endemic that devastated Eighty percent of all defined in BC and in the northern in two years. Mostly Pine for her. So that was that was a livelihood for most First Nation people myself is a logger for twenty years and a lot of a lot of search nation. People are in the logging industry but now that the MO pining has devastated our force. The logging indices going downhill very fast right now and there's still opportunities for US and north. We don't have time real estate like they do like some of the bands and Vancouver and In so use area where they have prime released real estate that they can lead hope for millions of dollars. We've got nothing into north. This pipeline was once in a lifetime opportunity for us to put our people back to work. So that's that's why I had a community vote and Eighty percent of my community voted to sign up for the L. N. G. So negotiate the best deal. I could for my people. So that's why I signed on in chief George. We hear a lot of times in the news. And we're also very careful to also say Hereditary chiefs Because that is a little bit different from elected officials in. Tell me the difference between the two and your understanding of the roles in when we do here hereditary chief say Our Word is what should be listened to your thoughts. Well the difference between An elected chief like myself is we. We have different clans in our communities. And what a rectory chief does is they. Look after one clan of people like I'm a beaver clan so we ever see my head. Cheese looks after the Bieber clan and that bear clan and the Cariboo clan but as an elected chief I look after everybody. I have no discrimination around which clan you're from we look after everybody has a whole and those elected those hereditary chiefs live in our communities. And where did they get their housing from from the cheeks the elected chiefs we give them housing? We pay for their guys. We pay for everything and another thing. Also is you gotta realize too the officer where to read Jerry Chiefs In smithers their offices. Run by natural gas and a lot of the chiefs. Homes are run by natural gas also and it you you support the oil and gas industry like a lot of our closys made out of the petroleum byproducts to and and we drive trucks and drive all kinds of vehicles are using propane and in the camps also that that if you look at their supporting that industry no matter how you look at it in just understanding more about you know how this works and of course these are also members of tribes in people that elected officials are to have their ears open to in. How do you weigh this when you do have people Who are you know? Still citizens of nations whether they be a hereditary chief. And they're saying we don't want this what do you do? How do you weigh some of that? And how do you find common ground? Is there such a thing? Glad chief George There is common gown is like we're all went to it and people and they voted for the natural gas Hereditary chiefs gotta follow what the people want. Just like US elected chief all All the different clans on our in our community. We'd follow what they want us to do. They give us a mandate to do what we need to do. So we follow that. But if you look at the grand jury change they gotta follow what people are saying. And these hereditary chiefs are not
