A gathering of Original Nations speaking out on the issues of 
Ancestral Responsibility to the Watersheds of Mother Earth
 from a Rights Holder position in the international context of the
UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

"Indigenous Peoples, Equal to all other peoples..."
UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples adopted by the General Assembly on September 13, 2007

As caretakers of Mother Earth we acknowledge and recognize the ongoing impacts of climate change which affects us all, and that the most severe impacts will befall future generations. The denial of this reality by political leaders at the highest level in the world today amounts to the criminal violations of the human rights of future generations which we will not allow to continue.

As a coalition of nations of indigenous peoples that have agreed to work together, we are calling again to our younger brothers of the immigrant settler republics of the Americas to recognize the collective trauma of colonization, and the ongoing destruction to the natural world which has brought the human species to the threat of extinction.
