CHIPPEWAR says that reconciliation requires returning stolen land and honouring treaties, but reconciliation will never happen. There are already 154 years of broken treaties with Indigenous peoples.
“Lick it, stick it, stamp it, no erasies”, as we travel on our two rows, (a childhood pinky-promise rhyme) is referenced as the commitment to travel on our own paths. The Two Row Wampum is an agreement of peace between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples to strive for friendship, civilness between peoples, and a standing agreement to live in parallel forever. Amongst all other agreements with Indigenous peoples, the Two Row Wampum has never been upheld by non-Indigenous peoples.
