The Toronto District School Board is completing a phase out of the word ‘chief’ from job titles, out of respect for Indigenous people.
Titles such as chief financial officer, chief academic officer and chief communications officer will see the word ‘chief’ removed and replaced with ‘manager’ or something similar. The changes include 12 chief positions in the professional support services department where the word manager is now used.
The work began a few years ago and is now concluding, TDSB spokesman Ryan Bird said.
Dr. Duke Redbird, curator of Indigenous art and culture at the TDSB, said the change “fits with building a student capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy and mutual respect — and that’s a quote from the Truth and Reconciliation (Commission) recommendations.” The commission was set up to examine the abuse suffered by aboriginal children in Canada’s former residential school system. Its final report made 94 recommendations.
Redbird said the TDSB move solves two problems. First, job titles will more clearly describe what the job actually entails.
Secondly, it respects the importance and recognizes the historical significance of the role of chief in Indigenous communities.
“And it helps in our own community, that these designated titles … are recognized for what they actually are — which are earned titles that you get through a democratic process of an election.”
The title of chief is earned and respected in the Indigenous community, Redbird said.

How long before Crayola has to change the name of half of the box of crayons because it just might offend some weak minded cunt?

So the rest of the world isn't supposed to use the word Chief, or countless others.

Fucking wagon-burners.

Maybe the Native Americans shouldn't have appropriated the traditional British appellation of chief then.

Unfuckingbelievable, but then again in the current day it's really not.
