‘Controlling the Narrative?’

New Rule:
No Race can tell a story about any other Race. You can only tell your own Race’s story… Really?

“Are you the ‘right person’ to tell this story?
“That’s what the organizers of the ‘Dead North Film Festival’ want filmmakers to ask themselves when they’re submitting movies that include ‘Indigenous’ {sic, they mean ‘aboriginal’, and aboriginals are NOT ‘Indigenous’ to North America} stories, culture or language.

“The annual Yellowknife festival showcases short horror films from across the circumpolar North. This year the organizers, Pablo Saravanja and Jay Bulckaert, are implementing ‘protocols’ {rules} to ensure filmmakers ‘respect’ ‘Indigenous’ {sic} storytelling.

“Those ‘guidelines’ are in a document published by the ‘imagineNATIVE Institute’, called “On-Screen Protocols and Pathways”. It’s a guide for people in the film industry when it comes to working with ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal Band}, Métis {mixed Race} and Inuit {Siberian settler} communities, cultures and stories.

“It’s a ‘dialogue’ {‘diatribe’} and it’s just something that every filmmaker, media producer, probably radio storyteller in the country should read”,
said Saravanja.

“The 80-page {!} document includes sections on working on {former} ‘Indigenous’ {sic} lands and in ‘Indigenous’ {sic} communities, as well as building relationships with an ‘Indigenous’ {sic} crew or cast. One ‘guiding principle’ {‘Racist rule’} is:
Nothing about us without us.” …

“We already had rules about, you know, we won’t accept any content that {we consider} is hate speech or racist or misogynistic or anything like that”,
Bulckaert said. He said they’ll adopt these ‘protocols’ with the same intention.
“If someone delivers a script that is counter to the spirit of that in some kind of egregious way, we just simply won’t accept it.”

“In an interview last month, Jesse Wente, {a racist CBC employee and} the director of the ‘Indigenous’ {sic} Screen Office, told CBC that the document is the result of years of advocacy by {a handful of} ‘Indigenous’ {sic} peoples around how their stories are told and by whom…

“Wente, who was an ‘advisor’ on the ‘protocols’, says the document aims to ‘build’ {control} ‘better relationships and practices’ between media and ‘Indigenous’ {sic} people… Wente said storytelling can be used as a tool of ‘colonialism’, so the document touches on ‘cultural appropriation’ as well as ‘narrative sovereignty’…”

{Of course, ‘cultural appropriation’ doesn’t include aboriginal film-making itself, and ‘narrative sovereignty’ simply refers to Race-based storytelling – which, of course, would be racist if done by anybody other than aboriginals…}

CBC News, Dec. 15, 2019

Jesse Wente has been appointed director of the ‘Indigenous’ {sic} Screen Office.

“The {segregated} ‘Indigenous’ {sic} Screen office for Canada is a new initiative that was created this past June as a collaboration with the {segregated} Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation/Radio-Canada, the Canada Media Fund, Telefilm Canada, the Canadian Media Producers Association, and the National Film Board of Canada. Bell Media, the Harold Greenberg Fund and VICE Studio Canada are also associated partners.
{In other words, it’s mostly taxpayer-funded.}

“The first director of Canada’s new ‘Indigenous’ {sic} Screen Office will be Jesse Wente, it was announced Wednesday. The purpose of the ‘Indigenous’ {sic} Screen Office is to support the development, production and marketing of ‘Indigenous’ {sic} screen content and storytelling in Canada.

“Wente, who is Ojibwe from the Serpent River ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 1,438 people} in Ontario, has worked as a ‘culture columnist’ {‘aboriginal advocate’} with CBC Radio since 1996. He has been the director of film programmes at the ‘TIFF Bell Lightbox’ and serves on the boards of the Canada Council of the Arts and the Toronto Arts Council, and was a previous board member for the imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival.
{A career based on exploiting his Race/ethnicity…mostly at taxpayer expense.}

“He said this opportunity is what his career and life have been leading up to until this point {!}… He said his goal is for the office to create ‘cultural change’

“which will extend not just beyond the stories we tell but to the real life issues that our communities face, to the relationship between non-‘Indigenous’ peoples here on {mythological} ‘Turtle Island’ and ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal Band}, Métis {mixed Race} and Inuit {Siberian settler} peoples.”

{She works for a taxpayer-funded, segregated news service that covers only aboriginal stories and attitudes…}

Quelle Horreur: Hate Speech in Disguise’ (Horror Films) {Oct.26, 2019}:
Hate speech is used by aboriginal activists to shame the Canadian gov’t and people into complying with their demands. Here’s an example of the racist, hate-filled material that the taxpayer-funded CBC now pretends is ‘journalism’ and, of course, it’s written by one of their aboriginal race activist ‘journalists’. This was in their ‘Arts’ section. P.S. It’s supposed to be about the horror genre:
‘Indigenous’ {sic} writers know what it’s like to live in a world where the horror never stops.

An Issue of Freedom of Speech‘ (Peter Best) {February 19, 2014}:
“The Indian and non-Indian establishments, for their own sometimes selfish purposes, contrary to one of the most fundamental values of democracy — free and open debate on important public issues — have in effect declared a ban on free speech around this profound human rights issue, effectively erecting “no trespassing” signs around it… So, the obvious goes continually unspoken and thus the duty, need and sad novelty of saying some of it here.”

“I really advocate that publishers just not publish non-Native writers [writing Native stories] until the reading public of the U.S. and Canada has a firm understanding of ‘indigenous’ histories.”

“‘Kanata’ tells the story of relations between ‘indigenous’ and non-‘indigenous’ people in Canada. ‘Indigenous’ artists and activists wrote an open letter, saying they worried the production would not ‘properly handle’ {‘present a one-sided version of’} topics such as missing and murdered ‘indigenous’ women, and residential schools…”

“Sure enough, at the first whisper of ‘First Nations’ reading insult into the cartoon, instead of teaching them about editorial cartoons and free speech, our venerable cartoonist caved like a politically-correct wuss…”
