I want the government to come to terms with our Peace and Friendship Treaties and acknowledge that the land is ours.

We don’t want everybody’s front yard or backyard, we’re not after that. We would like to have that acknowledgement and have the government sit down with our people and discuss – whether it be pipelines, fracking, or mining – discuss those projects with us first. We should have a say as to what is taking place within our ancestral territories.”
