Anishinabe mythology a Wolf character is the brother and true best friend of the culture hero

“Wolves figure prominently in the mythology of nearly every Native American tribe. In most Native cultures, Wolf is considered a medicine being associated with courage, strength, loyalty, and success at hunting. Like bears, wolves are considered closely related to humans by many North American tribes, and the origin stories of some Northwest Coast tribes, such as the Quileute and the Kwakiutl, tell of their first ancestors being transformed from wolves into men. In Shoshone mythology, Wolf plays the role of the noble Creator god, while in Anishinabe mythology a wolf character is the brother and true best friend of the culture hero. Among the Pueblo tribes, wolves are considered one of the six directional guardians, associated with the east and the color white. The Zunis carve stone wolf fetishes for protection, ascribing to them both healing and hunting powers.” Continue reading Anishinabe mythology a Wolf character is the brother and true best friend of the culture hero

Canada Day celebrations across the country, but CANADA has not paid The Anishinabe Government of Turtle Island the Rent For 150 YEARS!

  • Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.  Louis D. Brandeis
  • The most certain test by which we judge whether a country is really free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities. Lord Acton

AEB Anishinabe Environmental Assessment Board to study the Aliso Canyon LNG Environmental Disaster

While Corporate Enterprises are looking at partnering up on Indigenous land, The Turtle Island Government is concerned with the potential for Large Scale Environmental Disasters, specifically in regards to Pipelines, LNG , Land Storage, Proposed LNG Barges, and the increasing in Fracking practices in the industry, to examine projects to determine what the environmental, social, economic and health implications may be.

The large-scale natural gas leak at Aliso Canyon – is of great concern to The Government of The Anishinabe Nation, the increase in the potential for man made Natural Gas Environmental Disasters. The AEB Anishinabe Environmental Assessment Board ESRD, is looking into the Aliso Canyon Gas Leak.

Anishinabe Nation of The Great Turtle Island Environmental Assessment – adheres to ISO 14001 requirements,

The boards include the Anishinabe Utilities Commission (AUC), the Anishinabe Energy Resources Department (AERD) and The Great Turtle Island Resources Conservation Office (GTINRCO).

The Aliso Canyon gas leak (also called Porter Ranch gas leak[1] and Porter Ranch gas blowout[2]) was a massive natural gasleak that was discovered by SoCalGas employees on October 23, 2015.[3] Gas was released from a well within the Aliso Canyon’sunderground storage facility in the Santa Susana Mountains near Porter Ranch, Los Angeles.[4] The second-largest gas storage facility of its kind in the United States, it belongs to the Southern California Gas Company, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy. On January 6, 2016, Governor Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency.[5] The Aliso gas leak carbon footprint is said to be larger than the Deepwater Horizon leak in the Gulf of Mexico. On February 11, 2016 the gas company reported that it had the leak under control.[6]

On February 18, 2016, state officials announced that the leak was permanently plugged. An estimated 97,100 tonnes (95,600 long tons; 107,000 short tons) of methane and 7,300 tonnes (7,200 long tons; 8,000 short tons) of ethane was released into the atmosphere,[7] making it the worst natural gas leak in U.S. history in terms of its environmental impact.[8][9][10]

Ottawa seems more committed to saving money than to achieving justice for residential school survivors.

“I remember being in the dining room having a meal. I got sick and threw up on the floor. Sister Mary Immaculate [Anna Wesley] slapped me many times and made me eat my own vomit. So I did, I ate all of it. And then I threw up again … Sister Mary Immaculate slapped me and told me again to eat my vomit. … I was sick for a few days after that.”

The speaker is the Rev. Andrew Wesley, a survivor of St. Anne’s Indian Residential School in Fort Albany, Ontario, quoted in Charlie Angus’s new bookChildren of the Broken Treaty, which traces the history of Treaty 9 as well as of that the Indian Residential Schools system. Today Andrew Wesley is the Aboriginal Priest for the Anglican Church of Canada’s Archdiocese of Toronto. But in the mid-1950s, he was only one of several children at St. Anne’s whom Anna Wesley forced to eat their own vomit. Though she pled not guilty, Wesley was convicted in 1999 of assault and administering a noxious substance.

St. Anne’s is probably most infamous, however, for having a homemade electric chair that was used to punish children. Edmund Metatawabin, today an author, unfortunately experienced the chair. In a 2013 affidavit to Ontario Superior Court, he wrote, “I cannot describe how intense the pain was. I could not scream. At St. Anne’s, if you were being beaten, you could not scream or cry or the punishment would keep up.”

These were not isolated incidents: Children of the Broken Treaty reports that an OPP investigation nearly a half-century after the abuses took place collected 860 complaints of children being raped, sexually assaulted, tortured, beaten, and otherwise physically abused by 180 identified perpetrators. What took place at St. Anne’s could only be described as a crime against humanity. What kind of people would defend that?

The answer, painfully enough, is the Canadian Department of Justice — in the present day. Under the Independent Assessment Process (IAP) that was created as part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, the Department of Justice is in the strange position of having to defend Canada against these accusations while also having to prepare evidence for the hearings on behalf of the survivors in order to determine their settlements.

We don’t agree with the Minister of AANDC that the recent accepted UN human rights in Canada that the BCTC treaty process abides by this UN Human Rights! Kakila Hereditary Chief Clarke Smith

“We don’t agree with the Minister of AANDC that the recent accepted UN human rights in Canada that the BCTC treaty process abides by this UN Human Rights!”

Kakila Hereditary Chief Clarke Smith

” We thank the Minister of AANDC of the recent letter of reply regarding our urgent situation of fraud at treaty and logging. When you read the Loan agreement document it states it was approved by the constituents. Both documents make that statement. Over the last 20 years of this Treaty Process we constituents have never been provided the Treaty Loan Agreements for our consideration. Therefore, the documents are false thus fraud

In 2007? a letter was sent to the Chief Commissioner at BCTC asking for clarification. But no reply.

As you can see Gerard Peters is the Chief Negotiator and also Band Member of SAMAHQUAM and seems to be instructing His Employer on what to do! It the Tail wagging the Dog situation. It has been influence by the Inshuckch Treaty Chief Negotiator to vote for treaty!

Since the start of the Inshuckch treaty on October 15, 1994 at a convened AGM of SAMAHQUAM members voted no to the BCTC Treaty Loan agreements. This Resolution has never been rescinded or over ruled.

In 1997 SAMAHQUAM Chief and Council went forward with Inshuckch treaty without consulting nor consent from SAMAHQUAM Members the so called constituents.

In 1999 Sanahquam Chief and Council stopped support of this Inshuckch treaty since Inshuckch entities were not in compliance with treaty loan agreements and that Members did not have input to vote for participating with this treaty process

In 2001 A so called referendum took place for SAMAHQUAM but the Electoral Officer was non Canadian had just was released from jail and was wanted by the FBI !

In 1999 N’Quatqua with legal advice opted out of this treaty!

In 2010 Xasata First Nation with legal advice opted out of this treaty! Following that SAMAHQUAM Chief and Council re-entered this treaty without consulting SAMAHQUAM Members and thus are in breach of trust.

Most recently the SAMAHQUAM Chief and Council opted to not continue support of this treaty. And called for a referendum! Read the documents and make your own considerations

In 2011 the Chief of SAMAHQUAM signed a Forest Range agreement without Council or membership knowledge. This has been going on since 2004! Lizzy Bay Logging is a party to these logging initiatives and to date no audits of either the treaty loans and logging profits been provided to the SAMAHQUAM Members.

At the November 30, 2015 SAMAHQUAM AGM two Elders presented a resolution for a vote of non-confidence on the full SAMAHQUAM Chief and Council! At the recent May 01, 2916 SAMAHQUAM AGM the resolution was voted unanimously for the vote of non-confidence. However, the original resolution signed by the two elders was changed but was not addressed at the AGM to ask if the mover and Seconder agreed with the changes. More corruption.

Presently our Chief Kathleen got SAMAHQUAM Legal Counsel on these urgent matters. I did speak to this lawyer who confirmed he is accepting on behalf of SAMAHQUAM Chief and Council.

In 2012 we presented a resolution requesting Legal over view of this treaty process but were denied. In 1999 we did the same. Several times signed letters of petitions by elders and members and Hereditary Chiefs for legal help. Denied every time.

On July of 2015 two elders met with Troy Hunter to help us look into these fraud situations and damages to our Aboriginal a Title via the logging and surrender of aboriginal title via the Inshuckch Treaty. Both situations are in contempt of the Supreme Court of Canada Delgamuuk 1997 that ” you cannot use Aboriginal Title lands if it is going deprive future generation of their continued Use of their aboriginal rights. ” and the recent Tishlqotin Decision makes the BCTC process redundant!

Thank you

We don’t agree with the Minister of AANDC that the recent accepted UN human rights in Canada that the BCTC treaty process abides by this UN Human Rights!

Thank you”
