There is a real need for adequate eiutacdon for our First Nation youth as well as the living conditions on reserves. Education for the most part on this reserve will not result in a real eiutacdon . So far it has only been knowledge based and a certificate of completion. You may as well use it to start a fire, because this is not good enough to enter into continuing eiutacdon. Our Education Stakeholders Group removed our kids and have sent them off-reserve when we discovered this fact and that no marks had been submitted to Alberta Education, which means our kids had no transcripts. We have a group of over 30 children not attending Ta Otha Community School.Nakoda First Nation (Bighorn reserve) in west central Alberta also has inadequate housing for many of it's membership. I was visiting with one of the elders there last week. The sewer and water system is not working, in fact it is now almost 3 weeks since she asked the band for help with this problem. There is a 1 inch space between both the doors in the house where wind, snow, rain can come in. The home needs serious renovation, the stove only has 1 burner that works and no oven.She wants to care for her grandchildren, but they have to live somewhere else, and she is worried they are not being looked after appropriately.I don't know how these situations can truly be addressed. It seems to us that nobody wants to really deal with the underlying cause of these things.
