That depends on what city you are in. Winipeg, gangs like the Indian Posse and such are fairly organized on a street gang level and run pretty deep. I know that they feud with a gang called the Deuce, that seem to be a mix of everyone (Native Indian, black, white, etc) and the Warriors.
However, in the past couple of Years, native street gangs have been making there prescence well known in other provinces, such as Saskatchewan, Alberta and some parts of Ontario. Being from Saskatchewan, I can only observe what I see from where I am from, and not from the other provinces.
In Saskatoon and Regina, there are some very active streetgangs. The most dominant are the Indian Posse, Crazy Cree, Native Syndicate, Westside Gang, Mixed Bloods and at one point the Baby Blue Crips(i believe they are now defunct).
The Indian Posse as well as some other street gangs seem work with other organised groups, such as the Hells Angels and such. Many of the Native Gangs run drugs and prostitution rings and have territory in many Indian Reservations, which makes it difficult for law enforcement to investigate there activities.
So far, many of the killings, shootings, stabbings or what have you are not just done by Streetgang members alone. There is no real gang feuds going on from what I understand, maybe some tensions (Feuding over colors etc). Or if there are, I dont know who is beefin with who at the moment. Many violent activities are usually out at bars, or whatever and people just running there mouths or just general Random attacks. Saskatoon and Regina are both very Violent cities for there sizes. You have to watch out what you say, cuz if you say something to the wrong person you might be fighting 20 on 1 really quick. I know the Native gangs have ALOT of guns, and if there is an out war that breaks out, we gotta watch ourselves even more so here.
Many of the Native gangs you see, adopt the "South Central" attire, dressing like the Ese's and African american. However some, have decided to go back to there own roots. In Saskatoon, the main gang colors are Blue, Red, White and Black. The IP where Red and the Crazy Cree where blue from what I understand.
There are other gangs in Saskatoon as well (Asians, Hispanic, Middle East Groups, some black cliques as well.) But they arent as active on the street as the natives.
