Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians to Announce Action Plan to Oppose the Proposed First Nation Education Act

London, ON – The Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians member Chiefs refuse to accept any kind of Federal Education Act for First Nations. Grand Chief Gordon Peters will announce an action plan at the Aboriginal and Northern Affairs Canada building in Toronto.

The AIAI’s member communities have a collective vision for the future education of their children. The vision includes an education system that is based on Indigenous culture, traditions and languages as well as a system that includes equitable funding. More important, the system is under the authority and jurisdiction of First Nations. None of these is addressed in Canada’s proposed bill on First Nation Education.

“Our people have agreed that we must continue to assert our inherent jurisdiction over education by developing and implementing our own education laws and regulations which will lead to the establishment of our own education standards and systems,” said Grand Chief Gordon Peters.

The Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians has launched a campaign, in partnership with First Nation organizations across Ontario, to oppose any type of federal legislation for First Nation Education. As part of this campaign the Association will be hosting a rally at the Aboriginal and Northern Development Canada offices in Toronto at 25 St. Clair Ave. on Wednesday, December 4th, 2013 at 11:00am.

Grand Chief Gordon Peters went on to say, “Canada continues to insist on ramming policies and laws down our throats, this is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

The AIAI is a mandated as a political territorial organization to defend and enhance the Aboriginal and Treaty rights of its eight member Firs Nations. Visit them online at www.aiai.on.ca, https://twitter.com/aiai_comms, www.facebook.com/aiai.pto.
