Canadian Christian natives seek to end Indigenous native religious/cultural practices??

 
In a bizarre display of intolerance, after a sweat lodge was constructed in their community, Christian members of the James Bay Cree community circulated a petition that was signed by about 130 people demanding that the lodge be torn down.
 
The petition also stated: “We further request that no native spirituality be allowed in our community such as pow wows and spiritual practices, and [that we] not even allow any person to come into our community to bring these kind of practices to confuse our youth . . . . Our concerns are for our youth, our children and grandchildren. We have raised them with the Word of God and we will continue to do so. They know the difference between the Word of God and spiritual practices.”
