LiL'Wat Estken - 1911 Declaration...We claim that we are the rightful OWNERS of our Tribal Territories, and EVERYTHING PERTAINING thereto...
URGENT!! TO: THE NATIVE YOUTH MOVEMENT
FROM: PEOPLE OF THE LIL'WAT NATION
We commend you all brothers and sisters, for your stand and determination to put a stop to the "TREATY MAKING PROCESS". As the future leaders of your nation, you have not been given any say or input as to what will become of your nation. The children yet unborn do not have a say!! The "TREATY MAKING PROCESS" is helping the British Columbia and Canadian governments legalize their thefts of our lands and resources.
While the so-called democrats and leaders of THE SYSTEM live in comfort and luxury our people barely live in THIRD WORLD conditions. Our people continue to be criminalized when they make a stand and raise their voices. It is beyond time; TIME FOR TRUTH, TIME FOR RESPECT FOR ALL OUR PEOPLES OF OUR MANY NATIONS. The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights marks its 50th anniversary year, signed December 10th, 1948; written by John Humphrey a Canadian. (Van. Sun, April 18, 1998 Douglas Todd) CANADA IS A SIGNATORY IN THE UNITED NATIONS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, YET THEY CONTINUE TO INGNORE US.
BC IS UNCEDED LAND, WE HAVE NOT SOLD, WE DO NOT WANT TO SELL.
WE HAVE INHERENT RIGHTS AS NATURAL INHABITANTS.
WE HOLD JURISDICTION, IN EACH OF OUR TERRITORIES.
WE WILL NOT BE EXTINGUISHED,P. THE RULE OF LAW has yet to be addressed, and the Canadians do not abide by their own LAWS. Where is their honour and integrity?????
All My Relations!
