The Ven. Sidney Black
Prologue
The Chancellor, David Jones, advised that at the 2009 meeting of the Sacred Circle, the Governance Working Group asked ACIP the following questions:
- 1. How will future members of ACIP be selected?
- 2. How will future members in the Sacred Circle be selected?
- 3. How will the next NIAB be selected?
In accordance with the principle of self-determination, it was recognized that the answers to these questions must come from the Indigenous members of our Church and, after extensive consultations during the present triennium, the 2012 meeting of the Sacred Circle unanimously confirmed how these selections will be made in the future. Accordingly, the GWG [Governance Working Group] is proposing to COGS that Canon XXII be amended.

That the Council of General Synod forward amended Canon XXII to General Synod.
ADOPTED #06-03-13
Notes
The text of amended Canon XXII reads:
Be it resolved that this General Synod amend Canon XXII to read as follows:
CANON XXII
THE NATIONAL INDIGENOUS MINISTRY
The origin of this Canon is the Covenant made by the participants at the 1994 Journey of Spiritual Renewal sponsored by the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples:
“...We acknowledge that God is calling us to a prayerful dialogue towards self-determination for us, the Indigenous Peoples, 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....
“We, representatives of the Indigenous people of the Anglican Church of Canada, meeting in Winnipeg from the 23 to 26 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 that 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 vision and give us grace to accomplish it.”
The purpose of this Canon is to provide canonical recognition of structures through which the National Indigenous Ministry may be a self-determining community within the Anglican Church of Canada.
1. The National Indigenous Anglican Bishop
The National Indigenous Anglican Bishop (NIAB) has a pastoral episcopal relationship with all indigenous ministries in the Anglican Church of Canada. This role is exercised in partnership with diocesan bishops.
The NIAB is a member of the Sacred Circle, the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples, the House of Bishops, General Synod and the Council of the North.
Selection Process for the NIAB
A person is eligible for selection as the NIAB if that person
(a) is of the full age of thirty years;
(b) is a priest or bishop in Holy Orders of The Anglican Church of Canada, or of a church in full communion therewith;
(c) is faithful in the doctrines and discipline of The Anglican Church of Canada as determined and defined by the official formularies of that church;
(d) is known and recognized as being a person of integrity and moral stature; and
(e) has those qualities and abilities of leadership, experience and learning that will enable that person to fulfil the duties of a chief pastor in the Church of God.
When a vacancy occurs (or is about to occur) in the office of NIAB, ACIP will create a search committee (which must include an elder) to determine the specific qualities and additional qualifications that might be required or desirable with respect to the person to fill the vacancy; identify potential candidates; assemble information from the persons who are prepared to become candidates; and prepare a short list of candidates for ACIP.
ACIP will elect a person from the short list submitted by the selection committee, and will send the name of the NIAB-elect to the Primate for concurrence by the Primate and the four Provincial Metropolitans.
Following concurrence, the Primate will consecrate the NIAB-elect (if not already a bishop) and install the NIAB in office.
At the first opportunity following the NIAB’s installation in office, the Sacred Circle will receive the NIAB as its presiding elder.
Term of Office for the NIAB
The term of office for the NIAB is nine years from the date of installation. The NIAB whose term has been completed is eligible to stand for election for a further term.
The NIAB must retire on reaching the age of 70.
Vacancy in the Office of the NIAB
If the NIAB dies, resigns, retires, or for any other reason the office of the NIAB is vacant, or the NIAB is unable to act by reason of absence or illness, the Primate in consultation with the chair or co-chairs of ACIP will designate the senior indigenous bishop in The Anglican Church of Canada willing to undertake the task as the Acting NIAB.
2. The Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples
The Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples (ACIP) consists of representatives from dioceses where significant Indigenous ministry is taking place, the National Indigenous Anglican Bishop (who is the ACIP liaison with the Council of the North and the House of Bishops), and additional members as determined by ACIP.
The members of ACIP must be aboriginal, members of The Anglican Church of Canada, and active in their parish or diocese.
ACIP will consist of the following persons:
(a) The NIAB.
(b) Two persons elected by each Provincial Caucus at the Sacred Circle.
(c) One youth, one elder and one member-at-large appointed by the NIAB.
Except for the NIAB, the terms of ACIP members will end at the conclusion of the next Sacred Circle. Where a vacancy occurs on the Council between Sacred Circles, ACIP may appoint a replacement for a person who was elected by the Sacred Circle, and the NIAB may appoint a replacement for a person whom the NIAB had appointed. A person who has served on ACIP is eligible for re-election.
ACIP will select its chair or co-chairs.
ACIP maintains relationships with the House of Bishops, General Synod, the Council of General Synod, the Council of the North, and the International Anglican Indigenous Network.
ACIP organizes the Sacred Circles.
3. The Sacred Circle
The Sacred Circles have met approximately every three years since 1988.
The Sacred Circles are organized by ACIP.
The Sacred Circle will consist of the following voting members:
(a) Ten indigenous members from each of those dioceses identified by ACIP as having significant indigenous ministries. (More persons from these dioceses may attend the Sacred Circle, and may be granted voice but shall not vote.)
(b) Up to ten indigenous members identified by ACIP to represent urban indigenous ministries.
(c) Up to three indigenous members from the Anglican Military Ordinariate
(d) The indigenous bishops of The Anglican Church of Canada, as identified by ACIP.
(e) The NIAB, who is the presiding elder at its meetings.
The Primate is always an invited guest at the Sacred Circle, and has voice but not vote.
Invitations are also generally sent to the bishops from the Council of the North dioceses and the diocese in which the Sacred Circle is being held (if not otherwise included). In addition, ACIP may invite up to twelve partners to attend the Sacred Circle. These invited persons may be granted voice but shall not vote.
The date and location of the meeting of the Sacred Circle are determined by ACIP. The Sacred Circle performs many of the functions of a “Synod” for the indigenous ministries: it provides an opportunity for representatives of the indigenous communities to come together to worship, to discuss, and to communicate with the broader Church.
4. Organization of Indigenous Ministries
Developments in the organization of the indigenous ministries will take place over time, and can be accommodated by changes to the existing constitutional and canonical structures.
Dr. Randall Fairey was applauded for his work on Canon XXII.

THAT COUNCIL OF GENERAL SYNOD COMMEND THE FOLLOWING MOTION TO GENERAL SYNOD 2019: Be it resolved that the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada and its members and organizations live a life that declares, embodies, and promotes the following: 1. All creatures have responsibility and duty to live in respect to the dignity and life of all other creatures and that the interdependent and living relationship between all things is to be reverenced by human beings through a moral, sustainable, and respectful way of life. 2. The People of the Land, the Indigenous Peoples of our Land and Nation, stand in a unique place of witness to the living relationship between life and Land. Indigenous Peoples, in their teaching, way of life, and vulnerability to climate disruption and other consequences of a global society enmeshed in the culture of money and consumption, are a special model and concern for the Church and its work. 3. The living relationship of Indigenous Peoples to the Land is honoured and protected in, among other things, the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In particular, the principle of free, prior, and informed consent is a minimum commitment of societies and nations to the well-being of the People of the Land and the importance and right of their way of life in global society. The Anglican Church continues to support and uphold UNDRIP and, in particular, the principle of free, prior, and informed consent in its own dealing with Indigenous Peoples and in its public witness and advocacy. 4. The Anglican Church of Canada will seek to stand in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples, such as the Gwich’in, who are threatened by actual and/or threatened violations of their relationship to the Land. The Church will do this by, among other ways, their public witness and advocacy and by the adoption of way of life, individually and together, that honours and respects the interdependent and living relationship of all of the elements and Creatures of creation.

At head of title: "Winter Wishes Come True Thanks to Your Generosity". "Translating Scripture does more than help Cree people encounter God. Even people of Cree heritage who may not live in isolated communities and are fluent in English benefit from reading the Word of God in their mother tongue. Scripture becomes living and real in the languages of our communities. One Cree woman reported that reading Scripture materials in her own language made her fell 'complete somehow'. Three years of funding totalling $30,000 is helping to make translation in five different Cree languages possible through the Wycliffe Bible Translators". [Text of entire article.]

Rupert’s Land – Diocese of Keewatin Presentation
The presentation began with a procession of the Elders, Bishops, diocesan members and Chiefs from the Diocese of Keewatin. Archbishop David Ashdown and Bishop Lydia Mamakwa led the presentation. Rev. Joel Bighead and Rev. Eli Morris lead the Synod in prayer. The Rev. Amos Winter traced the history of the Diocese’s ministry and movements towards self-determination for Indigenous Anglicans. Kenneth Kitchikeesik spoke of how the dream of self determination had been passed down through generations, bringing the diocese to the point of having a self-determining, self-sustaining diocese in northern Ontario and Bishop Lydia Mamakwa. The Very Rev. James Dugan traced the details of the growing ministries in the three distinct regions of the diocese. Bishop Don Phillips expressed the pride and excitement of the people of Rupert’s Land in being involved in the process of moving the southern area of Keewatin into the Diocese of Rupert’s Land. Bishop Michael Hawkins emphasized that self-determination is a theological movement not a political movement.

TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION (TRC) #025-12-13-03 : Document Collection
Archdeacon Thompson welcomed Ms. Nancy Hurn, General Synod Archivist, and Archdeacon Jim Boyles. He spoke about the digitizing of archival documents for TRC, whose mandate it is to gather relevant archival material from all parties involved with the operations of residential schools (including General Synod). This work has commenced but TRC lacks adequate resources to complete it. Archdeacon Thompson advised that money is available in the unrestricted surplus of the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada. He also emphasized that this work and expenditure is a response to a request from the TRC to the Parties to the Settlement Agreement.
Archdeacon Thompson requested COGS to consider contributing a portion of the reserve funds from the Missionary Society of the Anglican Church of Canada (MSCC) for this work. He thanked Ms. Hurn for her leadership and advocacy and Archdeacon Boyles for volunteering his time to assist with assembly of the documents. [Applause]
