‘Aboriginal Infighting Stalls Park Proposal’

Race Based Law doesn’t work! Granting ‘aboriginal land title’ to what are nothing more than clans, based on nothing more than self-serving ‘oral histories’, will inevitably result in overlapping claims that interfere with land use. Crown Land facilitated the easy creation of Parks. No more…:

“After close to two decades, a final agreement on the proposed Thaidene Nene National Park Reserve is set to be signed in Lutselk’e, N.W.T., on July 25, but not everyone is fully on board. On the final day of the ‘Akaitcho Assembly’ in Lutselk’e, the Yellowknives Dene ‘First Nation’ (YKD‘FN’) {a ‘nation’ of 1,588 people} brought up issues they have with the current plan… 

“Chief Edward Sangris said one of his ‘First Nation’s main concerns is that the park might impact his people’s treaty rights to hunt, trap and fish.

If you can’t do that in a park, then that will be impeaching on our treaty rights“,
he said.

“The proposed park, 26,376 square kilometres of land northeast of Lutselk’e, is touted as what would be the most progressive protected area in Canada. Its core would be a national park, with a territorially-protected area surrounding that.

“In an email to ‘CBC’, Parks Canada representative Natalie Fay wrote: 

‘Indigenous’ {she means ‘aboriginal’} rights will continue to be exercised and protected, including the rights to harvest (hunting, trapping and fishing). Treaty 8 rights will also continue to be protected within the national park reserve.”

Sangris said his ‘First Nation’ {aboriginal community} is also concerned about whether the park could encroach on YKD‘FN’ land. He claimed there wasn’t enough consultation between the Lutsel K’e Dene ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 801 people} and the other Akaitcho ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} before Lutsel K’e voted in February to create the park.

I’m really not sure what the real concern is about it“,

said Archie Catholique, who has been on the advisory committee negotiating Thaidene Nene since 2000, and said the YKD‘FN’ has been in opposition to the park since the start. Catholique said Lutsel K’e invited the YKD‘FN’ to consultations on the park, but on some occasions, they refused to come.

“Sangris said Lutsel K’e did make presentations to YKD‘FN’ chiefs and council, along with their elders, around a year ago. However, he said that the elders weren’t comfortable when they heard about the plan for the Thaidene Nene park and wanted more information, something his staff got. Even so, Sangris said there should have been additional meetings chief-to-chief.

We told [ Lutsel K’e Dene ‘First Nation’], unless something changes, we’re not going to be part of the agreement“,
he said.

“Lutsel K’e Chief Darryl Marlowe said this is his community’s initiative and the YKD‘FN’ communities should “get on board“.

We don’t go into anyone else’s backyard and dictate how decisions are being made“,
he told CBC.
We would back them 100% on whatever they want to accomplish, and whatever goals they set … we would like the same respect.”

“The two ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} agreed to meet in the next week or so to discuss YKD‘FN’’s concerns. Both have different ideas of how those talks will go.

It seems like everyone’s confident the issues will be resolved before the July 25 signing ceremony“,
a hopeful Marlowe told CBC.

“Meanwhile, when asked if he anticipates YKD’FN’ will be signing the agreement, Sangris said he doesn’t think their issues can be fixed in such a short timeframe. He’d like to see YKD‘FN’ included in a ratification vote for the Thaidene Nene park.

“If the Yellowknives Dene ‘First Nation’ {aboriginal community} does not sign on to the final agreement, it’s not clear what impact that will have on the signing ceremony or the creation of Thaidene Nene.”
