Dear friends and fellow International students at UofS,
some people consider the struggles of Indigenous peoples against the
ongoing colonization by the Canadian state and the multinational
corporations as a domestic issue. But Indigenous (aka Aboriginal,
Native) Nations are sovereign nations and thus it becomes an
international human rights issue. I am sure that in your countries,
too, there are still ongoing struggles against Western imperialism and
control, and that the Indigenous peoples in some of your countries are
still oppressed and marginalized by the dominant society.
if you would like to discuss this more, please email me, as this is of
academic and general interest to me. Thank you and good luck on your
exams, if you still have them ;)
Please circulate widely!
"By Any Means Necessary" is a documentary that chronicles the Treaty 10
right to hunt and the legal journey of the Buffalo River Dene Nation
from Northern Saskatchewan. The documentary reviews the legal case in
Saskatchewan, the refusal to be heard at the Supreme Court of Canada,
and their international legal endeavours.
