Notes
"Among the tragic stories of poverty, alcoholism and abuse on Canada's Indian reserves, one community stands out as a shining exception. Waskaganish [Quebec] is a town that has been transformed." "Conversations with the people of Waskaganish reveal a common thread -- a pride in the extraordinary development and improvement of their village during the past 20 years. Two reasons for the turnaround are clear: the gospel and the James Bay Agreement -- in that order. Two indviduals also appear in the story: Johnny Whiskeychan, who brought spiritual revival to the town, and Chief Billy Diamond, who is spiritual, political, economic leader and more to the community".
See also "Issues that can't wait", pp. 27-28, an interview with Chief Billy Diamond.

Notes
A description of the religious situation on the Walpole Island Reserve which includes Anglicans, the United Church, Pentecostals and Aboriginal native traditionalists. "Unless the needs of the aboriginal native peoples are met there will still be tension between the aboriginal native peoples and the white society. This is particularly true with the aboriginal native relations with the federal and provincial governments as well as local non-native municipalities. Issues such as land claims, treaties, education, poverty and health, and of course taxes continues to be topics for negotiations. Aboriginal native people are not taxed if they live and work on a reserve. The church has a role to play in mediating these issues. Until the church speaks out on these issues, many aboriginal native people will find the church irrelevant and stay away from church activities. Unless the needs of aboriginal native people are met in a satisfying way, the local church and even the national church will not grow, needs that the kingdom of God seek to reinforce. May the church awake and grow. Amen ! (pp. 82-83)
Author is an Anglican priest in the Diocese of Huron, in Ontario, Canada. He was born on the Walpole Island Reserve and is an Ojibway (Chippewa) speaker.
