The March Point Controversy

by

Our friends over at Longhouse Media found themselves victims of image theft that was used in racist attacks against native youth in Canada. The above image from Longhouse’s award winning film MARCH POINT apeared in a UsedWinnipeg.com ad headlined “Native Extraction Service” with a photograph of three young native boys.The service offered to round up and remove First Nations youth like wild animals, and “relocate them to their habitat.”  The ad read: “Have you ever had the experience of getting home to find those pesky little buggers hanging outside your home, in the back alley or on the corner??? Well fear no more, with my service I will simply do a harmless relocation. With one phone call I will arrive and net the pest, load them in the containment unit (pickup truck) and then relocate them to their habit.”  Read more about this horrendous act against native youth here.
