Serving indigenous people since 1970.
Discussions regarding information on indigenous movements in Canada and Canadian Territories.
The following statement was adopted unanimously by Chiefs in Assembly December 6, 2012.
We, the original peoples of Turtle Island hereby assert our sovereignty as Nations, entrusted to us by the Creator,
As First Nations peoples, we are guided by principles of peace, harmony and respect; we are also bestowed with the responsibility by the Creator to defend our territories, including traditional and Treaty lands,
We have maintained these principles despite the imposition of illegal government legislation and policies against our citizens,
Idle No More began with 4 women, Nina Wilson, Sheelah Mclean, Sylvia McAdam and Jessica Gordon, sharing a vision of bringing together all people to ensure we create ways of protecting Mother Earth, her lands, waters and people. The women began discussing the possible impacts that some of the legislation would carry if people do not do something. It became very evident that the women MUST do something about the colonial, unilateral and paternalistic legislation being pushed through the Government of Canada’s parliamentary system.
IN LATEST BID FOR JUSTICE THROUGH THE CANADIAN COURTS EXTINCT TRIBE (THE SINIXT) WAIT TO SEE IF COURTS WILL DECIDE IF THEY MUST PAY COURT COSTS FOR NOT ONLY BEING EXTINCT BUT MOOT AS WELL.
