This blog represents my own personal opinions, thoughts and ideas, and should never be relied on as legal advice. My goal is have a national discussion with the grass roots citizens to see where we can affect the changes we want for our families, communities, and Nations. We owe it to our ancestors to protect our cultures and territories for our future generations.
Her goal in creating this website is to help unite and empower the grass roots citizens of our Indigenous Nations in Canada so that we can advocate on our own behalf as individuals and communities to make full-informed decisions about our futures. I challenge the federal, provincial, territorial governments, as well as the Indigenous Nations, governments, communities, and organizations to be more inclusive of their grass roots citizens and better reflect our diverse and common interests as Indigenous peoples.
