Rightful Caretakers

It’s time for the true caretakers of the land and waters, the indigenous Nations, to assert our sovereignty through actions. … BC is entering a new era, one of educated Indians. We are a new generation of leaders – rather than victims of the residential school system we are university graduates and professionals. No longer will we be told what we can or cannot do. We will do what we know is right. It’s up to Canada and the World to help, or step aside and let us do our job as the rightful caretakers of our territory.
