My Jewish Boyfriends bar mitzvah

Hobbema, a reserve, houses something like 15,000 new nation people. Hobbema is plagued with gangs and drugs. What is the cause? The free money. People get free money from the government. I drove a couple of guys from Hobbema this morning. We got to talking. They liked me, I respected them. I asked for the scoop on Hobbema. O.k, so the reserve is massive, it's actually four reserves, and this is where the conflict begins. Each reserve is it's own, hence the Gang Wars. Tribal style. Why gangs? Free money baby. Think about it, every person gets 500$ a month, some people have six kids, you do the math. Now get a mother of six hooked on Crack, got it. Big time cashola! Hobema is getting a really bad rap, unless you're reading my blog from like 1000kms away you know what I'm talking about, senseless gang violence. Like the little girl that was guned down during a pussy drive by. Well, what I was told tonight made me change the way I felt about the I.P. (Indian Possy) They're a gang of New Nation people based outside of Winnipeg. Well the head honchos (this is just what I've been told, I could be wrong) are telling the members "stand down. Loose the colors, No more I.P on this reserve." They (the big dudes in some prison) don't feel that they are being represented properly. I think that's cool, if it's true. Personally I think Native culture is beautiful, full, real but the drugs and alcohol are poisons circulating and causing some serious damage to the people as a whole. The dudes I drove treated me really well. I took good care of them, we bought some booze at some club totally illegally. I now know where to go for late night illegal off sales, except if I knock on the door to that club I'm pretty sure a big Indian would step on me. I dropped them off on 118ave and 100st, they opened a window to a basement suit, I don't think the resident was home, but according to them it was a good place to drink the 24 pack of Bud and two six of Smirnoff. They paid 130$ for the booze and they gave me 40$, they owed me 50$ but hey I learned a lot. It was worth it.

Read a book, talk to someone descent who lives there.. we do not get $500 a month, God when are people going to get over it. And it wasn't free when Indian Affairs made the reserve it happened to be a land that had alot of oil, so we got oil revenues the only "free money" we get is $5 bucks a year that was promised Treaty 6 all we had to do was sign over our land our lives. Normal people live there and grow up and become normal people with normal jobs. sorry to rant but i read your blog regularly and all the thugs from Hobbema are just idiots and the community is taking action.

Dude! Don't be such a hater! At least the blogger is taking an interest in your culture and trying to explain SOME of the issues in an unbiased way. You KNOW there are some serious fucking issues on reserves, that's WHY the "community is taking action". BTW, he doesn't need to read a book to be well read. He TALKS to REAL people who are living through some REAL shit! Sounds like YOU are the one who needs to "get over it!" Peace.

The people I drove that night were cool. I liked them, they were hammered. The post is what I got out of them, it was their description, for all know those guys weren't from Hobbema, (I believe they were), they called it "Free Money" not me. Hey I don't care about the free money, I just wanted to address an issue that came up in the taxi. When they got in they told me they were from Hobbema, I figured since they were for out ther I would get the down low. The post is all I got out of them, they were partying preety good, and we listened to a lot of loud music, we also laughed. They did not mention anything about the community taking action other then the gang stepping back. Thats a big step for a community. Good for Hobbema.
Hey maybe on day this will be a book and you're comment might help educate ignorant mother fuckers, Rock the Fuck on.

I grew up in a reserve town in Saskatchewan, my dad was a cop. I can't count the number of times gangs of girls would come up to me and try to beat me up for my shoes. Its not everyone, but its a good majority. And I grew up in it.

I expect comments like anon#2 and i understand your blog is from your perspective which is real and i get it but ppl read your blog and form impressions or reaffirm their own idiotic ideas such of the one of the girl Meika who states its the majority.. majority my ass. I was born raised and work in my reserve I am professional as are my siblings and my parents and many others.. The fact you says its the majority, your as bad as the media. I like your blog and i will continue to read it just thought i would comment.

Anon, i think it's great that you overcame the odds (however according to you the odds were in your favor) and became a contributing, productive member of society. From an outsider's perspective, we have always been told (and seen) some horrific social situations in the Aboriginal population (as with many other cultures!)but with some of the shit your people have had to deal with, (residential schools, bogus treaties, etc.) there's no wonder there are problems. However, you shouldn't be so sensitive. No one is saying ALL people on reserves are bad. They aren't. I grew up near a reserve (Sawridge) where Walter Twin was the chief and the man was a genius. Very nice family too. But that doesn't mean I think ALL people on ALL reserves are nice either. Just like any other situation. Rock on.
