  1. I understand that elected councils are a creation of the Canadian government. The Confederacy Chiefs are their traditional, historical government, so Canada’s elected councils have only served to increase tensions and divisions. We must end 500 years of arbitrary, unkind treatment of Indigenous Peoples by laws, courts, and other institutions set up by Euro-Canadian settlers, of which I am one, for the benefit of settlers, and enter into a period of deep listening and power sharing. Indigenous Peoples will not be jerked around any more by politicians and extractive corporations. We must honour our treaties and words.
