"malak cacak" Discussed on As It Happens from CBC Radio

"Lately. The news from the federal campaign trail has been dominated by talk of guns vaccine passports and the protesters who are very much against vaccine passports. What has not been at. The forefront are boil water advisories the horrors of residential schools and other issues that affect indigenous communities after a summer in which unmarked graves were discovered at former residential schools. It seemed like indigenous issues. Were finally impossible to ignore. Flags were lowered candidate celebrations were cancelled and politicians made lofty promises with just thirteen days to go before the election. We reached riley. Yes no to talk about those promises. She's an indigenous. Rights advocate and writer from admiral tongue first nation who recently graduated from the university of toronto. She's in toronto. I know you have been following this election campaign so how much attention has actually been to the issues of indigenous people. Yeah i have been paying close attention I think that we're still not seeing enough. Which is incredibly disappointing. Especially coming out of the last few months right where there was all the revelations of the graves at resit former residential schools. What are you hearing if anything of what the the leaders are saying. We know that. I know you worked with justin trudeau and his youth council. When you're in high school you have been engaged in politics. We saw in twenty fifteen justin trudeau described. This is the most important relationship was our relationship with indigenous people and yet in six years of being the prime minister. Six years since we had a tooth the conciliation commission that said there was a cultural genocide. What has actually been done. Yeah i mean. It's why i said in the last election. The twenty nineteen election that justin trudeau's biggest competition at that time was not injure sheer but it was two thousand fifteen justin trudeau. Who made all of these promises to indigenous people got indigenous people out in historic number to vote and then failed us time and time again since those years so looking at the liberals actual track record You know they have completed. Only a small small handful of the ninety four calls to action at this rate. They won't be completed until something ridiculous. Like twenty seventy. They missed their target for boil. Water advisories miss their target for murdered and missing indigenous women and girls action plans. And so we've kind of just seen one broken promise after another In terms of the trudeau liberals and we both conservative leader erno tool. He says that flags have been flying at half-mast for the children who died at the residential schools. Those flags should now be raised. What are you hearing from him yet. I mean air no tools platform and the conservatives Was the first one that i read in terms of their indigenous commitments. And it is. It's actually horrifying In my in my view. I mean we started off with the title. Which is you know. saying commitment to canada's indigenous people As if you know. Canada owns us erin. O'toole of course came under scrutiny A number of months ago for his role in a young conservatives you know campaign or meeting or something like that where he denied you know the true nature and atrocity of residential schools And it's really start to see how he's leading in the polls at least right now and so now. Canadians who were flying their flags half mask wearing their orange shirts are now lining up to vote for this man. It's really kind of harrowing is wanted to your reference to the Tse tooth and reconciliation commission in the ninety four calls to action That i think erin o'toole has committed to implementing six of them. I think all dealing with the residential schools has what about the mvp have we seen has the and eps seeing made reference to those calls to action. Yeah so i mean the platform certainly has you know The best language and like the best analysis around it so they commit to implementing all ninety four of the truth and reconciliation Calls to action creating an indigenous housing plan that includes on and off reserve. So you can tell that. There is some level of being in touch with indigenous communities probably also because the most of the can most of the indigenous candidates running in this election are with the mvp but also. The one thing. That i'm worried about is that it's a bit of a truism right like if they were to ever get into office to make these far reaching these stretching promises. It's it's gonna be really hard to fulfil those i think and then also it's going to set a really bad precedent for indigenous people to be let down again some months ago. We spoke with malak. Cacak is she. is you know. And then dp politician. She was the only seat in the house of commons and the interview. We had with her. She told us that she was not going to run again in this campaign and it was absolutely touching and important interview. We had with her what she described. How disillusioned she was with the political system. How little she was able to accomplish with with inside politics you had considered running for the mvp and then chose not to is that. Yes so it's it's You know really echoes. Kind of what malak was saying. You know so. You had mentioned at the beginning that i used to work with prime minister justin trudeau. That was when i was very young. I was super into this idea of politics. Elected politics in canada as a change making vehicle and through my time Working with the prime minister. I came to realize how how truly ineffective it can be at times and more. So how violent and how You know perhaps my my voice and my skills could be used To better serve my community and other places and not so Malek said i really love that she saying like you know i'm not quitting. I'm just changing all this work. That i'm doing i'm going to bring it somewhere else. And the more i thought about it the more i just thought You know along the lines of that famous. Audrey lord quote which is you'll never dismantle the master's house by using the master tools and to that end i don't think i'll ever achieve indigenous sovereignty through the colonial government. Let's put you. Don't i mean you see. Politics is a way of changing things but not through the system that exists right now getting that straight. Yeah yeah. I think yeah. The system is inherently flawed. And working within it. I don't know. I'm not convinced that that's the best way to use one skills. And what is the conversation that non-indigenous people should be having that. What would you tell. The rest of us is to how we should regard indigenous issues. When we're casting that vote. I mean i think the election time is just one time of many where non-indigenous people who claim or want to have ally ship with indigenous people to put you know Their money where their mouth is. And so you can't say you support indigenous people and then show up and vote for a party. That's actively trying to make things worse for us or strip away our rights or take us back in time That is you know counter to everything people. I seem to claim a lot. These days and is not conducive to a good relationship and so i think that During election time it's important to turn to either be indigenous people in your life or the countless indigenous people online in communities who are doing advocacy work and telling us what we should be paying attention to. who should we Be looking at for leadership and a. Now's the time really to do that. And put your ally ship into action marley. There is a you giving us a lot to think about. And i really appreciate speaking with you. Thank you.

She delivered her farewell speech to the house of commons and as ms kaku told her followers on twitter. She did not hold back every time. I walk onto house of common grounds. Speak in news chambers. I'm reminded every step of the way. I don't belong here. I have never felt safe or protected in my position. Especially within the house of commons often having pep talks with myself in the elevator or taking a moment in the bathroom stall to maintain my composure. When i walked through these doors not only am. I reminded of the clear colonial house on fire. I am willingly walking into. I'm already in survival mode. That was going and ep. Mp mummy luck. Speaking the house of commons last night we reached ms cacak in ottawa. This speech you gave last night is so powerful and we will post links so that because everyone should hear it. What kind of reaction are you getting from people. I think that people are upset. it's it's been forced. This conversation has been forced the student I think that people that they want to see my name back on the ballot. So it's been nothing but momentum amount of support and and months that i've been seeing anyways and lots of messages from people that i know Just congratulating or same but it's it's what's needed and that's what's going to be missed that amount and level of transparency and accountability. You said in part of the speech. You mentioned that you are reminded every time you walk into the house of commons. You reminded that you don't belong there. What does the experience you have in that building in that institution so i was walking to the house one time and to question period and i saw the security guy in booth and he gave me a nod so i guess i'm a nod and i was like great like i contact with great. I like i'm good. He knows who i am and i. I don't have to worry. So and i usually. I always have my headphones in. Because i'm trying to pump myself up with snotty nose reds kids and get myself mentally prepared to speak in the house of commons and i got the nod from the security in the booth and i pass by the next set of doors and i'm listening to music but i can hear and feel heavy steps and vibration as if somebody's jogging after me and i knew it was happening and that there was a the second security guard. He didn't not at me even though he looked at me. And so i thought okay. That's probably what it is so slowly take out my headphones slowly. Turn make sure that. I'm not moving. Casaus i'm not gonna make a scene i'm not gonna and he's like do you have. Id you need to be like basically screen to be in here. And i was like oh my goodness and he eventually like realized. I think felt a bit silly. But how intimidating is that like to have these big heavy footsteps behind me. And so then i'm thinking so my position helps but it doesn't matter If i don't have the titles and then what then. What do i do and i just am always going into work With that mindset in your speech you want people to understand the issues. You were trying to bring to the house of commons that. They've also been ignored. You talk about this. The lack of affordability in housing the access to clean water the suicide rate among you people were ever able to get anything that you wanted on the agenda. I got to speak from a place of truth and reality. I got to say exactly what needed to be said and how it needed to and for me. That's the a huge accomplishment. Even though it it shouldn't be in the world of politics. I think that's that's something that needs to be discussed more. I would not feel comfortable in any other space except with the new democrat party. I have never felt the need to to tone down or two not k something. And i have never been put in a position where i've been made to muslim myself. And in any way shape or form. And i think if anything i've been able to show that impossible as possible that there's chance for hope where it's purposely put out and i think that regardless of what happens next there has at least been shown that we don't need to hide those truth we don't need to be thankful for less than the bare minimum and that we can find pride in our identity and who we are again and let for moving towards healing. You don't let anyone off the hook in this speech right you. The people who say who are posed to your ideas opposed to what you're trying to to tell the house of commons. That did they are less a problem for you than those who say yes. We understand exactly we. We see exactly what you're saying but we're not going to do anything about it. You've said that that's that's that's the worst of it isn't it to be told all the time as an indigenous person. That's someone that looks like me that they know there's a problem. They know there needs to be more. Done is incredibly frustrating. And what. I've come to realize more and more is that it's it's about power and that there's an major imbalance and what what that is is the gaslight. It's a power trip to be able to have an immense amount of oppression on not a small group of people by any means. I'm talking about tens of thousands of inuit. I'm about hundreds of thousands of digital people who this system doesn't doesn't work for and i have point.
