Shannon's Story: Life on the Rez.
I live on a reservation, a First Nation community. You know, "The Rez." The reserve lands are 6,500 acres and the community that I live in is on a small fraction of that. The original reserve lands, however, were 17,000 acres, which is more than half of the current reserve. (What a difference!!) We hunt and fish on the land and there is a beautiful place called Indian Point where our two rivers meet. Although it was over ten years ago, I have fished on the rivers with my husband and caught some nice salmon. But fish are not as plentiful as when he fished as a child. In fact, a lot of things are different and not as plentiful now. Read more here.
