Kichesipirini Algonquins Again Reflect on History as They Continue International Assertions Despite Increased Pressures

15015238_400x400.jpg

As we prepare to attend the United Nations Indigenous Peoples Forum we again remember why we continue to assert our traditional identity and its international character. The Indigenous Peoples of Canada, as organized according to our traditional nations and inherent identities hold certain precious rights important to ALL Canadians, and our common future together.

Please remember with us this important aspect of Canadian and international history and view our expression of commitment to our ancestors:

Kichesipirini State "We Are Not Metis"

Canada Domestic Policy Continues to Breach Constitution Through Illegal Demographic Manipulations

Manipulation #1- We are not Metis.
Aboriginal rights are inherent and inalienable. The Algonquin Nation has never signed a Treaty. We are still sovereign. We can determine our own identity according to international law. Program and services dollars only lure the ignorant and desperate.

Manipulation #2- Aboriginal rights belong to a certain race of people who can prove they are that race.
Blood quantum policies erodes the true rights of Indigenous Peoples. Race was never the issue. Natural citizenship is. Racism is a tool of colonization to break down the sophisticated Indigenous Nations.

Manipulation #3-The Canadian court system gives Indigenous Peoples their rights.
The domestic court system is an extension of the colonial legacy and is sworn to protect the interests of the Crown. The domestic court system can only articulate limited recognition of the existing Indigenous rights. Relying on courts can generate Strawman strategies & erode rights .

Fact: The Algonquin Nation has never ceded jurisdiction or title. Rights and benefits belong equally to ALL persons of Algonquin descent. Domestic policy uses monies to rob large numbers of people from appropriate compensations. Current rationalizations to continue eroding the rights of Algonquin descedants, and refusing to release appropriate revenues to enable Kichesipirini to provide accurate information raises serious implications for all public servants and Ministers acting within Algonquin territory.
