Last year, I went to nimaamaa’s rez(North western Ontario), and somebody took my camera and took pictures of the prices of food. I thought it would be interesting to post them here. Whenever somebody assumes that people who live in reserves “have it great”, I always think back to how high the prices of food is; Food is damn expensive in the rez.
HOLY FUCK THESE PRICES ARE NOT EVEN LOGICAL
This is absolutely disgusting.
I was reading an article during my politics class about how the food prices are five times the amount in our grocery stores because they are flown in. Most of the people on the reservation of Kashechewan live on welfare and in order for them to eat healthy, they have to spend all of their monthly welfare check on the groceries. This is why most people stick to unhealthy food. It’s a never-ending cycle. For all the people who say that most Natives should just cheer up and be happy that they live on a reservation, this is why they are not.
ten dollars for apple juice
this is absolute and total BULLSHIT
4 dollars for KD.
goddamn fucking horseshit nobody should have to spend all their money on fucking groceries at the expense of literally everything else
