What defines a sacred space and who gets to claim it as his own? Why is it acceptable that any western religion can, simply by getting its Pooh-bah to invoke a few incantations, magically fashion a patch of consecrated ground while Anishinabeg and Confederacy people have to rattle out an entire ochre-dipped ossuary before theirs receives the same courtesy? Some people will attend churches in strip malls next to Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets yet its too broad a leap of faith to see how a small spot in the woods overlooking Lake Ontario might bring you closer to the Creator.
