Default Jane Fonda on the Warpath in Canada

Big News Scoop: Jane Fonda’s solidarity with Canadian First Nations

Dear Jane;
You need to read your history. It was the United States who forced Indians to move west of the Mississippi River. In Canada, we paddle to the reserve to buy guns, bootleg whiskey, and bags of cigarettes.
Your Great Friend,

Indian removal was a policy of the United States government in the 19th century whereby Native Americans were forcibly removed from their ancestral homelands in the eastern United States to lands west of the Mississippi River, thereafter known as Indian Territory. That policy has been characterized by some scholars as part of a long-term genocide of Native Americans[1]

“I have a hit TV show now. If I get arrested it’ll bring even more attention to the issue,” Fonda deadpanned in an interview with The Canadian Press. “I hope I get arrested.”
