STORYLINE:

Speaking at a press briefing, Rose Anne Archibald, Assembly of First Nations National Chief said, “we're taking the microphone to amplify our priorities of decolonizing, decarbonizing and calling out the systems that undermine and harm Mother Earth and our mother tongue, and matriarchy.”

The UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues Issues (UNPFII) is held from 17-28 April 2023, in New York.

The theme for this year’s Forum is “Indigenous Peoples, human health, planetary and territorial health and climate change: a rights-based approach.”

Aly Bear, Vice Chief of Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations told reporters, “First and foremost, I'm a mother and I have two daughters that have to grow up in this society. And this society right now is targeting our women and our girls and our two spirited plus, and we need to be doing more to protect them.”

She continued, “We need to be making sure that these issues are at the forefront because they continue to get overlooked and we continue to see more women go missing and murdered.”

The Vice Chief reiterated, “Everybody in society should be protecting one another and our future generations and our children. And I say that and I asked that and I call upon all levels of government as a mother as a lawyer and as the third Vice Chief of the FSIN.”

Judy Wilson, former Neskonlith Band Chief and former Secretary Treasurer of the Union of British Columbian Indian Chiefs, also spoke at the press briefing.

She said, “Canada continues to deny the existence of indigenous inherent title and treaty rights which our nations have never ceded surrendered or sold, despite having been forcibly displaced from our homelands and regulated to reserves that total to 0.02 of the Canadian landmass.”

Wilson added, “When the title and rights of the indigenous people are perceived to be in conflict with the assumed national interest or the agenda or priorities of the Crown government, that all fell in line with corporate interests. The inherent title and rights of indigenous peoples are repeatedly infringed and violated.”

Reg Niganobe, Grand Council Chief of Anishinabek Nation told reporters, “At the United Nations will continue to seek clarity on the application of principles of free prior and informed consent when it comes to State actors and indigenous peoples that do not live within their domestic jurisdiction.”

He also said, “We are worried that data priorities that weaponized data could create further dispossession at the expense of our inherent rights.”

Grand Council Chief added, “With that, it is important to engage this on the international stage to monitor how State actors will use novel or complex jurisdictions like data governance or the implementation of FPIC (Free, Prior and Informed Consent) to push through agendas that serve corporations and not people.”
