Cree Leader Elijah Harper to Have State Funeral

Yahoo! News Canada - Latest News & Headlines

His body will lie in State in the Manitoba Legislative Building this week.

Elijah, we have come a long way from the days of the old Indian Act where an Indian off the rez would have been criminalized for just wanting to see a big city.

I thank you for your courage in those days of the Meech Lake Accord, I thank you for your compassion for your people and for all the people of Manitoba that your served.

For our American brothers that don't read too much north of the border, Mr Harper took on the Government of Canada with his simple, "No". He quietly reminded the GoC that Aboriginal people had a voice and we hadn't gone away.

I will see you on the other side Elijah - your good works will continue.
