“We call upon the federal government to develop with Aboriginal groups a joint strategy to eliminate educational and employment gaps between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians.”
“We call upon the federal government to establish multiyear funding for community-based youth organizations to deliver programs on reconciliation, and establish a national network to share information and best practices.”
“We call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources.”
We have to take care of Aki (Mother Earth) or we will not have a home. We must all share in this responsibility. We need to make sure that Mother Earth and everything the Creator gave her will always be here for future generations. We need to remember and live by the teachings of our Grandmothers and Grandfathers. They taught us, as they had been taught by their elders, how to take care of Mother Earth and each other.
Love: Love is one of the greatest teachers.
Respect: One of the teachings around respect is that in order to have respect from someone or something.
As Indigenous people we understand our relationship to all of creation.
Honesty: It takes bravery to be honest in our words and actions.
Truth: All of these teachings go hand in hand.
Wisdom: a gift from the Creator, is to be used for the good of the people.
Bravery: We need to be brave in order to do the right thing even if the consequences are unpleasant.
