A Question of Ownership


Keep people from their history, and they are easily controlled. Karl Marx


The Indian Act violated cultural heritage by creating a different form of governance, other than traditional democratic socialism guided by wisdom. The promises of education and benevolence are seriously lacking in empathic pragmatism and have imposed decades of unnecessary hardship. A model possessing universality in addressing indigenous need has been presented and ignored.




Mother Earth, as with an indigenous feeling of love, respect, and sense of being, is corrupted by the callousness of the province’s approach. Blending and harmonizing industrial economics with the tourist industry related to indigenous opportunity has not been considered. Treaty Nine is an agreement with the First Nation and the Government of Canada.




Nibinamik First Nation is the cusp of the matter, the jewel.

“We are deeply concerned about Crown government representatives making assurances to industry that Ontario will ‘handle’ and manage the legislation, regulations and policy related to the development of our traditional territories and homelands, intending only to extinguish our rights, disrespecting sacred sites and exclude the interests of our people, our communities and our future.”

The release from the Chiefs Council goes on to state that under the James Bay Treaty #9, Ontario does not have the authority to govern the region and the Crown’s duty is to protect the rights of the treaty.
