‘She’s B-a-a-a-a-a-ck!’

“A Mi’kmaw lawyer, professor and {aboriginal Race} activist has started a national book club she hopes will foster ‘conversations’ {lectures} that help Canadians turn the page toward {one-way} ‘reconciliation’.

“Last week, Pam Palmater launched an online ‘Reconciliation Book Club’ where each month she’ll pick a book and announce it on her YouTube channel.


“The primary focus will be on ‘indigenous’ {they mean ‘aboriginal’} authors, although Palmater plans to include some written by ‘allies’ {those who unquestioningly support her political demands} whose work she considers important.

“Four weeks after the book club selection, she will post a video review incorporating readers’ comments and answering their questions.

“Palmater, a member of the Eel River Bar ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 758 people} in northern New Brunswick, is a Ryerson University professor who holds the chair in ‘Indigenous’ {’Aboriginal’} Governance. She said the book club project will promote ‘reconciliation’ with ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} people by helping Canadians learn more about how they can be ‘allies’ {those who unquestioningly support aboriginal political demands}.

How can we celebrate National ‘Indigenous’ {‘Aboriginal’} Peoples Day and have hot dogs and picnics when we haven’t addressed the National Inquiry’s {ridiculous} finding of ‘genocide’ and that our people are dying? What do we do with all that?
Palmater said in an interview.

Those are hard conversations. There’s a big lack of understanding, and I’m trying to bridge the divide between what people think they know about history and what they don’t know about right now.”
{Nonsense. She is a propagandist for anti-Canadian aboriginal nationalism…}

“The idea to start a free and accessible book club was sparked by the interest of those attending her public lectures, many of whom approached her after with questions. It was always followed by a similar deluge of inquiries on her social media accounts from people wanting more information.

There were always people who wanted to share their view that they wished they knew more, they never learned about it in school, where do they start. And I always used to give them a list of some things to read or I’d put some resources on my website”,
Palmater said.
But then I thought that’s kind of leaving them hanging … I need to close the loop here, not just give the recommended reading, but an opportunity or some kind of space to ask a question or offer feedback or share their impressions and ask more questions. That way it’s more of a conversation.”

“When she announced the book club launch on July 6, Palmater said she received “a flood” of responses from ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} people in both Canada and the U.S. But she was overwhelmed to receive even more feedback from non-‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} Canadians. They included teachers, social workers, nurses, doctors, lawyers and others whose work brings them into regular contact with ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} people. She said many of the teachers told her they welcomed the resource and planned to use it in their classrooms.

“Palmater said although it’s somewhat of an “unfair burden{?} that ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} people have to do this work themselves, she believes it’s necessary to start these conversations.

I believe self-education is important, and I think every Canadian has the obligation to self-educate on native issues {???}, but it’s not that easy so I just want to help it along a little bit”,
she said.

“‘Indigenous’ {aboriginal} ‘allies’, she explained, can help in many ways, ranging from advocacy on social media, voting differently, supporting a local ‘First Nation’ {aboriginal community} or donating land in a will.

There are so many things, some that have a price tag and some that don’t, that people can be doing”,
she explained.
But they’re not going to be spurred to do it unless they know the injustice.”

“The first book selection, “Whose Land Is It Anyway: A Manual for Decolonization,” is available free online as a PDF and ebook.

“Published by the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators of B.C., it was inspired by Arthur Manuel’s 2016 speaking tour that took place less than a year before his death in January, 2017. In addition to essays written by leading ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} ‘academics’, writers and activists in Canada, it contains two essays by Manuel, who served as a chief of B.C.’s Neskonlith Band and chairman of the Shuswap ‘Nation’ Tribal Council {an aboriginal lobbying organization}.

This book is in memory of the late Arthur Manuel, who is well known amongst native people and others as a staunch native activist who was always about protecting our lands and our rights, and I thought it would be a nice tribute to him to make it the first (book club selection)”,
she said.

“Palmater’s biggest hope is that by providing this resource and fostering these ‘conversations’ {she means one-sided lectures}, ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} people in Canada will gain more ‘allies’ to help them push for things like social and ‘climate justice’, human rights and economic equality.

Think of all the youths that could be part of that or kids in high school or even universities in a non-debating, non-confrontational way, because most native issues that I deal with in the media … it’s always a debate, it’s always is a vicious battle”,
Palmater said.
{That’s an outright lie. It’s almost always a one-sided aboriginal narrative, usually with Comments disabled!}

This isn’t going to be a debate {No, a lecture} … It’s just, ‘Let’s work through the issues.’ I’m pretty excited about it.”

“The video review of the first book will go live on her ‘Reconciliation Book Club’ channel on July 27.”

–‘Meet the Mi’kmaw lawyer who hopes her national book club helps turn the page toward reconciliation’,
Yvette d’Entremont, Toronto Star, July 13, 2019
Hate-filled propaganda piece from a notorious, privileged ‘partial-aboriginal’:

“…Saskatchewan is also well-known as one of the most racist provinces in Canada. With colonization and the clearing of the plains, came brutal acts of genocide, land dispossession and violent racism against ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal tribes} – a legacy that has and continues to be a lethal reality for ‘First Nations’…”

From 2013:
“Scores of media interviews hoisted Pam Palmater into the role of de facto spokesperson for the Idle No More “revolution”. Like all INM spokespeople, Palmater plays the “green card”:

Canadians need to realize that we [Aboriginals] are the last best hope at saving the lands, waters, plants, animals and resources for future generations….
(Rabble.ca: January 8, 2013, “Idle No More: A profound social movement that is already succeeding”)

“The latest clue in the mystery enveloping Pam’s racial pedigree arrived in a January 12, 2013 National Post article, which asserted Pam “was once denied status on basis of bloodline”, thereby implying she is no longer being denied Indian status. In this article, Palmater “compares herself to a residential school survivor” – but, of course, she isn’t one.

“Palmater was {originally} denied Mi’kmaq status because her grandmother married a white man. This implies said grandmother is her only connection to sacred Native blood. Pam looks like a European tanaholic.

“Pam claims her family “originates at” or “traces back to” Eel River Bar ‘First Nation’ where her great-grandfather was Chief. Eel River Bar ‘First Nation’ has a population of 600 of whom 300 live on-reserve. It is unclear whether Palmater is a member.

“Her “non-status Indian” website
(pampalmater@nonstatusindian.com )
was superseded by her “indigenous nationhood” website (http://indgenousnationhood.com ) in March 2011.
This may have corresponded with her winning “status”. A February 3, 2011 posting discusses the recently passed Bill C-3 and its granting of status to persons whose grandmothers lost status for interracial marrying…

“A tenacious grasping at a tenuous Aboriginal identity formed the core of Palmater’s survival strategy. Circa 1990, Pam was a single mom on welfare raising two boys. Over the next decade, while residing in Native housing and receiving financial aid from three Native agencies, she piled up four university degrees: a BA in Native Studies, an LLB (with a prize for an Aboriginal rights/environmental law paper), and an MA and PhD – both Aboriginally focused).

“Her academic and political pursuits formerly centred on the struggle for privileges by non-status Indians and on a more inclusive ‘Indigenous’ Nation. These themes manifest in her much-flogged book, “Beyond Blood: Rethinking Indigenous Identity” (a reprint of her PhD thesis).

“After attaining her PhD, PAM WORKED FOR INDIAN AND NORTHERN AFFAIRS CANADA and for the Aboriginal section of the Federal Justice Department. She is now a Torontonian and a professor in Ryerson University’s Politics and Public Administration Department. She is also “academic director” of RYERSON’S “CENTRE FOR INDIGENOUS GOVERNANCE” – an entity whose website consists of photos of Pam and details of Pam’s appearances, which in turn are promos for Pam’s book. The Centre is her publicity agency.

“In 2018, Ryerson paid Palmater $155,034.62 and taxable benefits of $1,284.92. (Ryerson’s website and the Ontario Ministry of Finance – Public Sector Salary Disclosure website)

“At the July 18, 2012 Assembly of ‘First Nations’ (A’FN’) leadership convention Palmater was defeated by incumbent Chief Shawn Atleo on the third ballot – 341 votes to 141. On the first ballot, Atleo had 284 votes and Palmater 95.

“Palmater’s activism is a full-time job. It is hard to believe she has time to prepare lectures and correct term papers. She conducted INM interviews from her Ryerson office….”
