Resistance is the cure for Indigenous suicides. There is nothing wrong with Indigenous individuals that was not caused by the relentless violence of ongoing colonization, and therefore the treatment of the fatal condition of dispossession and oppression is to right that basic wrong. That, and an anti-capitalist campaign that will set the humanistic balance of pre-capitalist, or pre-Columbian, economics back in place. So writes the very qualified lead author Dr. Roland Chrisjohn, Onyota'a:ka of the Haudenausaunee, who published one of the earliest and most accurate exposés of the prevalence of violence against children in Indian Residential Schools, The Circle Game.
