"We've almost reached the Columbian Quincentary, October 12, 1992, 500 years later. .... This kit is not about Columbus. 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.
"This kit is a modest attempt to facilitate the work that activists and educators are engaged in to support Indigenous peoples. It provides perspectives on 500 years of colonialism from Indigenous writers in Canada, the United States and the South. It includes their thoughts and strategies about how to organize and rebuild their communities, and their nations, as well as their personal reflections on the meaning of 1992". -- Intro.
Contents: Acknowledgements -- Table of Contents -- Foreword / Bob Antone -- Introduction -- 1992 and Beyond -- 1492-1992 -- Modern Day Colonialism -- Indigenous Women -- Solidarity -- Resources.

Anglican church welcomes court decision on native land claims

TORONTO (Dec. 12) -- The Anglican Church welcomes the Supreme Court of Canada's ruling recognizing the rights of native peoples to the ownership of ancestral lands that have not specifically been signed away through treaties.
The ruling overturned a previous British Columbia ruling dealing with land claims by the Gitxsan and Wet'suwet'en people. The Supreme Court ruled that the trial judge erred in not recognizing the validity of native peoples' oral history and ordered a new trial.
Donna Bomberry, the Anglican Church's Coordinator of Indigenous Ministries, said she hopes the decision will open up a new era in the way governments deal with native land claims.
She added that because of the level at which the ruling was made, it is likely to have repercussions on many other land claims throughout the country.
"I feel elated," Ms. Bomberry said. "It is a real breakthrough in the way land rights issues should be handled."
Catherine Morrison, the Anglican Church's Coordinator of Indigenous Justice, said that with this ruling, Canada recognizes the value of the history and culture of native people. The decision, she added refutes the trial judge's statement that "aboriginal life in the territory was at best nasty, brutish and short."
"With this ruling, we are seeing a level of respect for aboriginal peoples that has not existed since the first settlers were welcomed to this country," Ms. Morrison said.
Last spring, the Anglican Council of General Synod passed a resolution expressing its support for the Gitxsan and Wet'suwet'en people in its battle through the courts. The church has also supported them through the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples, its EcoJustice Committee and the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund.

Caledonia Synod - April 14-16, 1972 (Aiyansh, pronounced "EYE-ANN-CH")

In New Aiyansh, British Columbia, 70 miles by logging road from Terrace, an event will take place this spring which is both unique and significant. This is the first time in Canada that an Anglican Diocesan Synod will be held in an Indian village. The synod will be held from April 14 through April 16. This is also the first time that Indian dances, which at one time were forbidden by missionaries, will form an integral part of the synod celebrations, the first time church vestments worn during the synod services will be made from Indian blankets.
One of the clergy attending, an Indian deacon without seminary training, was selected by his people to be their natural religious leader.
The native people represent three distinct groups...the Haida...the Skeena River people and the Nishga. In 1916 these peoples were persuaded to destroy their totem poles and many of their native customs were outlawed. However, one village has recently erected a new totem pole in the churchyard. A group of 70 children and adults, many of whom are dancers, drummers and singers will perform the almost forgotten dances.
The menu for the synod includes baked salmon heads, seaweed cooked either as a vegetable or as a main course, berries, sea lion and moose meat.
The Nishga tribal council was the first in Canada to make a legal case for aboriginal rights, claiming that they owned the land before the white man arrived and had never agreed to sell or vacate them. In the meantime the issue is before the supreme court. This is bound to have an effect on all such claims by native peoples in Canada.
