Call For Unity Amongst First Nations

The Whitehorse Daily Star reported in it’s July 19, 2013 edition, that there is division amongst the First Nations.  The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) met in Whitehorse, while at the same time a group of chiefs met in Saskatchewan looking for an alternative to the AFN.

AFN National Chief Shawn Atleo stated, “As I said at the outset, unity does not mean that we must walk the exact same path but that given our diversity we can find a way to move forward together towards a common destination, one where we all live and act on our rights, our title, and our treaties, where our children and families live in safe and secure communities.”
