This short article is not about the Two Row, but is included here because it addresses a frequent point of misunderstanding between native and non-native people – First Nations are not another multicultural group (i.e. First Nations are one of the two rows, with all settler groups in the second row)

The following 4 links are to videos of a talk published on Dec. 3, 2012. Updates on the Omnibus Bill legislation about to be passed given by Dr. Pamela Palmater who is a Mi’kmaw lawyer and member of the Eel River Bar First Nation in New Brunswick. She teaches Indigenous law, politics and governance at Ryerson University and heads their Centre for Indigenous Governance. (Resistance to the Omnibus Bill has numerous facets and the main focus has been the degradation of environmental protection; one other area is how it again disregards treaty rights.)
