Cultural Misappropriation, “Molasses” and HTTPS

Disclaimer: My references to the writings of other people–both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous–do not in any way imply that they share my views on this matter.  The opinions expressed here are my own, and do not necessarily represent those of my family, friends or associates.

During the mid- to late-1970s, some Indigenous women I knew at the time gave me the nickname “Molasses” because of my slow-motion style.  They can rest assured I am still as slow as molasses in January.

These women are not alone in their opinion.  Many Non-Indigenous people of my acquaintance think it is taking me far too long to finish my multi-part series on cultural misappropriation, as it relates to Indigenous people who live in Canada.  In fact, I have been working on it since January 2017.

For those who have been waiting patiently (or in some cases, impatiently), you can rest assured I am working on it regularly, and it is taking shape.
