That this General Synod:
1. Affirm, in the spirit of the resolution made at General Synod in 1969, that the Indian Act should not be changed or abolished by the Federal Government without the expressed consent of Indigenous peoples; that the Federal Government should not impose a process on Indigenous peoples related to such changes; that any consultation and negotiation process related to such changes must be designed in full partnership with First Nations involving the duly chosen and recognized leadership and all members of those communities; and that First Nations must each retain the right to opt out of such changes.
2. Call on Dioceses to take steps to inform their membership of the proposed First Nations Governance Act and related initiatives of the Federal Government, to organize diocesan Sacred Circle dialogues with local Aboriginal peoples, churches, and local Members of Parliament regarding these issues; and to speak out against assimilative initiatives of the Federal Government, both publicly and to their Members of Parliament.
3. Request that the Primate communicate these positions to the dioceses, to the Prime Minister, to the Minister of the Department of Indian Affairs, and to local, regional, and national Aboriginal leadership. CARRIED WITHOUT DEBATE Act 54

"The article, 'Understanding Treaty as Covenant', was graciously provided by Stan McKay". -- p. iv.
"'In Peace and Friendship' is a response to those who faith or conscience compels them to understand more deeply the struggles of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. It provides an opportunity, particularly for non-Aboriginal people, to open themselves to a new perspective by exploring a relationship with the original inhabitants of this land that recognizes their unique nationhood. .... [It] is an educational resource for groups of youth or adults, within a congregation, a regional church body or as an open community event. There are five sessions. This resource could be used as a series of weekly workshops for a local group or linked together for a 2-day conference or retreat. The first and fifth sessions assume a Christian perspective". -- p. i.
