Indigenous Peoples Treaty Meeting

On Friday, March 18, 2011, the day prior to the commencement of the North American Indigenous Peoples Caucus Meeting at the Blue Lake Rancheria in California, there will be a one day treaty meeting. The purpose is to discuss how to best implement and enforce treaties as a continuing means to secure Indigenous peoples sovereignty and right to self-determination over lands, resources, and culture. This meeting was called by North American treaty nations at the Ottawa sub-regional conference of the Organization of American States and is particularly relevant given the recent treaty language endorsed by the OAS in Washington. It is also designed to be an opportunity to begin to strategize prior to the Third UN Treaty Seminar in 2012. Please plan to attend. Lunch will be provided and a dinner "Honoring Treaties" will be held that evening.
