NAT053 - (Indigenous-Border) TERRACE, B.C. x-09s. A Tsimshian (SIM'-she-an) First Nations woman says the fact that she can't continue teaching a language revitalization program in northern British Columbia is just another way that Indigenous culture is being erased in Canada. Mique'l Dangeli (MIKE'-ee-ELL' DAN'-jell-ee) says her work is important, but she's being forced to leave the country on Canada Day because she happened to be born on the American side of her nation's traditional territory. ("..our nations.") (SOURCE:The Canadian Press)
