Notes
"In 1996 PWRDF Executive Director Robin Gibson hired [Jose Zarate] to visit and consult with Indigenous communities with whom the Anglican Church had worked. These communities identified four areas as strategic ways in which PWRDF could come alongside: restoring language and culture; working with youth; empowering women, health and wellness; and inter-Indigenous networking. Our aim was to build a new partnership based on principles of trust, equal respect and the assurance that indigenous peoples would be the ones who identify the work -- the who, when, where, how and what they would like to accomplish. Later that year [1996] PWRDF hosted a face-to-face Indigenous partners gathering in Six Nations of the Grand River; Ohsweken, Ontario. Together with the 2011 Indigenous Partners Roundtable in Calgary, Alberta, these consultations have shaped our vision and activities".

Notes
The Statement would now read:
1. In 1976, the National Executive Council authorized the Primate, in cooperation with other Canadian Church leaders, to request the Prime Minister and the Federal Cabinet to deny permits for offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea.
2. Subsequently, the Cabinet agreed to authorize a permit for Dome Petroleum to undertake drilling operations during the 1976 season.
3. A number of technological as well as human failures were recorded in the course of the drilling season. Events have been documented to show the evident failure of Dome's technology to cope without substantial environmental risk with conditions in the Beaufort Sea.
4. A detailed review by the Canadian Arctic Resources Committee (CARC) shows that both the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs (DINA) and Dome Petroleum told both Native people and the public less than half the story about difficulties encountered in the 1976 offshore drilling operations.
5. Dome Petroleum has applied to Cabinet for approval of a 5-year drilling program in the Beaufort Seas.
6. In the light of the above information and events which have come to light since the recent meeting of the Program Committee, the Management Unit at the request of Social Action Ministries staff, propose that the National Executive Council pass the following resolution:
Moved by MacKenzie, seconded by Leadbeater,
That the Primate and/or officers of the National Executive Council again request the Prime Minister and the Federal Cabinet to deny permits for offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea pending formal consultation of the Native people of the area. CARRIED

The Quincentary merely provides a focus for Native people, and non-Native people, to reflect on 500 years of colonialism, and to address issues of fundamental human rights, land rights, self-determination and the environment. .... This Resource Kit provides ecnouraging examples of ways in which certain sectors of society have taken initiatives to work in solidarity with First Nations people. It also provides practical suggestions for further actions that can be taken to support Indigenous people in Canada and the Third World. Our challenge for 1992, and beyond, is to acknowledge the historic reality of the past 500 years, to evaluate the present, and to work for a common future, based on new and meaningful relationships of mutual respect, trust and cooperation". -- Foreword.

Aboriginal Anglicans get approval to form self-determining community within the church

OTTAWA (June 9) -- The 300-member General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada has accepted and confirmed a covenant which encourages indigenous peoples to create a self-determining community within the church.
The covenant was drafted and signed by Aboriginal Anglicans at a gathering in Winnipeg last April.
Bishop Gordon Beardy of the Diocese of Keewatin, told Synod it is time for native people from across the country to begin a dialogue on what they mean by self determination and partnership within the Anglican Church. (Bishop Beardy is the second Aboriginal person elected bishop in the Canadian Anglican Church.)
Bishops James Cruickshank of the Diocese of Cariboo, said he was "deeply moved" by the desire of Aboriginal Anglicans to shape their future. "I believe one of the great promises of the Gospel is that we can be responsible for our own lives," he said. "What I hear our native brothers and sisters saying is that it is time for them to accept responsibility for their future and to move from a feeling of dependency on the church to a sense of independence."
Although one speaker expressed concern that native and non-native Anglicans would lose their connection if a self-determining Aboriginal church were created, most Synod members expressed overwhelming support for the covenant.
"We are letting go of something precious, but it may be necessary to let go so that we an receive each other back again in fullness," said Bishop Cruickshank. "I believe we will be a richer church for it."

Winnipeg, May 6, 1994 -- The trend toward native self-government has taken another step forward, this time in the church. A group of Aboriginal Anglicans has agreed to work toward the creation of "a new, self-determining community within the Anglican Church of Canada."
The decision arises from a consultation of 20 Aboriginal Anglican leaders which was called to advise the church on priorities. The group, which included members of the Church's Council for Native Ministries and Aboriginal members of other national committees, presented a statement to the church's national executive council, meeting in Winnipeg this week.
The statement invites the Anglican Church "to covenant with us, the indigenous Anglicans of Canada, in our vision of a new and enriched journey."
"We were elated by how clearly we all felt led to this unanimous vision," said Donna Bomberry, chair of the Council for Native Ministries. "We felt the presence of the Holy Spirit all through the gathering. Every day we shared traditional [aboriginal religious] teachings, scripture readings, the eucharist and biblical reflection."
"We feel like new missionaries," said the Rev. Arthur Anderson, an Aboriginal member of the national executive council. "We are bringing a proposal to our church for a new spiritual relationship between ourselves and non-native Anglicans."
Archbishop Michael Peers, the church's Primate, notes that the church began a fundamental reviews of its relationship with native people 25 years ago, after a national report called its practices into question. "Since that time, we've worked at ways to increase our sensitivity to the needs and hopes of Aboriginal people. The dialogue that will be created by this initiative is a further step along that road.
This is a sign of increased self-confidence, and a perception within the Aboriginal community that the rest of the church is ready and willing for this dialogue," he said. "Much of that dialogue will take place in local congregations and in dioceses."
The initiative comes at time when the church is examining all of its structures and priorities. The National Executive Council has welcomed the Aboriginal initiative and pledged its "prayerful support and dialogue" throughout the process of developing a new relationship.
Aboriginal people are estimated to make up about four percent of Canadian Anglicans. There are approximately 210 Aboriginal congregations, 70 Aboriginal clergy, and two "suffragan" (assistant) bishops.

Notes
[Text of Covenant reads as follows:]
A Covenant
We, representatives of the indigenous people of the Anglican Church of Canada, meeting in Winnipeg from the 23 to 26 of April, 1994, pledge ourselves to this covenant for the sake of our people and in trust of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ:
Under the guidance of God's Spirit, we agree to do all we can to call our people into unity in a new, self-determining community within the Anglican Church of Canada.
To this end, we extend the hand of partnership to all those who will help us build a truly Anglican Indigenous Church in Canada.
May God bless this new vision and give us grace to accomplish it. Amen.
[21 signatures]
Background to Covenant:
Our Journey of Spiritual Renewal
We, the indigenous partners in Canada of the Anglican Communion respectfully affirm our place in God's Creation and in God's Love, manifest through the Grace of Jesus Christ. In specific, we address the Anglican Canadians with whom we are in direct Communion.
We have shared a journey of close to three centuries in which we have been:
- denied our place in God's Creation
- denied our right as Children of God
- treated as less than equal; and
- subjected to abuse, culturally, physically, emotionally, sexually and spiritually.
The result, in our communities, homes and daily lives, has been and continues to be:
- broken homes and lives;
- sexual and family violence;
- high recidivism and incarceration rates;
- high chemical abuse;
- loss of spiritual fulfillment;
- loss of cultures, languages and traditions; and
- poor stewardship of Mother Earth.
Because the National Church's canons, structure and policies have not always responded to our needs nor heard our voice; we now claim our place and responsibility as equal partners in a new shared journey of healing moving towards wholeness and justice.
We acknowledge that God is calling us to a prayerful dialogue towards self-determination for us, the Indigenous People, within the Anglican Communion in Canada. Through this new relationship we can better respond to the challenges facing us in a relevant and meaningful way.
As faithful people of God, guided by the Holy Spirit, we invite you, the Anglican Communion of Canada, to covenant with us, the Indigenous Anglicans of Canada, in our vision of a new and enriched journey.
