In these times of climate crisis and implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of
Indigenous Peoples Act, along with the commitments made at the UN Climate Change
Conference (COP26), the governments’ actions against Indigenous Title and Rights and climate
change are disappointing stumbling blocks on the path to reconciliation.
The Haida Nation condemns all acts of violence against Indigenous Peoples and ways of life.
Indigenous Peoples have called for renewed relationships and equitable systems to address
policy brutality, racism in the healthcare system, and dispossession of lands and resources.
