I'm all for it, as I say... I just don't see it being anything more than symbolic, and I don't think symbolic gestures are going to do much to end the divide.  I have no idea what the answers might be, though.

I spent a great day at the desert cultural center at the Osoyoos Indian Band reserve.  It really opened my eyes to the potential of what could be achieved with the right leadership.  Of course the cynical view is that the Osoyoos band has it made because their reserve is located on a piece of paradise. That might have helped, but I think it's dismissive of the tremendous work that has been done there in building a proud and successful community.
