AMC, SCO AND MKO SUPPORT HUNGER STRIKERS DECLARATION OF COMMITMENT
Winnipeg, MB - The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC), Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO) and the Southern Chiefs Organization (SCO) concluded their two-day Assembly today by supporting the Declaration of Commitment released by Chief Theresa Spence and Raymond Robinson.
The Chiefs in Manitoba and visiting Chiefs from across the country at this Special Joint Treaty and Dakota Chiefs Gathering commend Chief Spence and Raymond Robinson for bringing global awareness of the issues impacting Indigenous people across the country and to the fact that the sovereign Nation-Crown Relationship is severely impaired by the Government of Canada.
Chief Spence is a brave warrior and we commend her foresight and commitment to propel the First Nations agenda to the forefront which governments have dismally failed to do since confederation. The Chiefs in Manitoba agree to continue the fight that will bring expedient fundamental change.
The Chiefs wish to thank the families and loved ones of Chief Theresa Spence, Raymond Robinson, Jean Sock and all the fasters that supported her efforts.
