The Congress of Canadian AmerIndians is suing the federal government for abusing its people through application of defamatory and libellous titles such as Aboriginal Peoples, Native Indians, First Nations and Eskimo. The group claims the right to name itself whatever it pleases, claiming that “the red people got here first”. The government, in turn, is suing the Indians for their long-held assertion that the native word Kanata, from which the name Canada is derived, means “village”, which implies backwardness and excessive down-to-earthiness. The feds claim that Kanata in fact means “the great north strong and free, we stand on guard for thee”. The parties are widely expected to reach a compromise by 2047 and rename Canada “Hoochapuck”, which in the native language means “The Red and the White Man playing hockey peacefully together”. A number of feminist and “black pride” activist movements have already expressed their discontent at this development stating that curling should be the sport of choice.
