Kwey

After months of communications with different United Nations bodies and just recently filing a request for International Criminal Court investigation into the ongoing genocide of the Kichesipirini Algonquin First Nation through the application of Canadian domestic policy the Kichesipirini Algonquin First Nation, as a still sovereign indigenous nation in Canada, after refusing to leave their territory or acquiesce any rights by coming under domestic policy, has been invited to attend, the Seventh Session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.‏

We go, as is our traditional role, to represent the best interests of all our relatives, all Indigenous Peoples of Canada, honouring the spirits of our ancestors, ensuring that the Indigenous Peoples of Canada will be recognized and respected as a founding Peoples of Canada.

Kudos to Paula

Hello Paula, having an interest in the geographical area of the Kichesipirini Algonquin First Nation mainly because my historical roots are there and my relations Algonquin, I have to say how inspired I am by your efforts in relentlessly promoting the cause of the Kichesipirini people. Your efforts are Olympian..........you deserve a medal and the gratitude of everyone, not just Algonquin but all Canadians in your pursuit of justice and what is right.

Kichesipirini Petition For Justice Recognized

We have won!!!!! I just received a letter from the Attorney General's Office of Ontario recognizing the Kichesipirini Preliminary Notice of Petition for Justice submitted in Dec. 2007. In that document, also forwarded to the ICC, we insisted on accommodations within the legal system, including international expert intervention, respectful of our unceded legal jurisdiction, sovereignty and title.

The UN Declaration of Indigenous Rights has also now been accepted by Parliment!

Canada has failed to act in good faith again. These proceedings at the United Nations should be gaining headline exposure in a free media! Why are they not?
