CLOSER LOOK AT TREATY QUESTIONS

On May 7th we held the second annual GN Community Celebration & Open House, to highlight all of the good work that has happened in our community over the last year. The Treaty Office had booths open to answer any questions and to provide materials on the treaty negotiation process. Also, as reported in the last Yo! News, in the evening we had a Q&A session with Roy Francis, the Sliammon Chief Negotiator (Sliammon has just signed their treaty). People wrote their questions and Roy answered them. Also, Johnny Henderson Sr. and Doug Johnny Sr. were given time to make a short presentation and ask some questions. There were many great questions asked, and this is the first of many Yo! News articles that will take a closer look at answering the treaty questions that are coming from members.

secured highly valuable development land but also protected important fishing and shellfish areas. Another example is the capital transfer fund. Sliammon is preparing to invest the fund in a trust fund that can look after generations yet to come. Roy stressed that it is ‘what you do with what you secure’ that is key to addressing hurdles. Roy also talked about how important it is to involve the community in all discussions and not to lose sight of vision and goals. He concluded that it is easy for people to reject things they many not fully understand and much harder to build - which needs to be a focus. Questions from G-N Members Some fundamental questions brought up by members, and the first to be discussed here, are: 1. What are aboriginal title and rights? 2. What is ‘grassroots’ title and rights and how do they connect? 3. What does treaty mean?

Sliammon First Nation Treaty Roy Francis explains that it has been a ‘long road’. About 18 years ago they started off in the treaty process talking about what needs to change for their community such as: o o o o

Jobs Services/health Continued access to a land base Certainty around hunting and fishing rights

Focus on ‘Building’ for the Future Roy talked about some of the hurdles faced by his community. The land base was an important discussion; community members wanted more land. They asked themselves what percentage would provide ‘enough land’. An important insight was that the answer would always be there is never enough

1. Aboriginal Title and Rights: Our way of saying aboriginal title and rights is “Oweentna-kula”, which means “one with the land and sea we own”. The courts have defined aboriginal title as land which a First Nation can prove that it used and occupied historically to the exclusion of other First Nations before the year 1846. Aboriginal title is a right to land. Aboriginal title is like ordinary land ownership in many ways. The owner can exclude others from the property, take resources from it, and use it for business or pleasure. But there are important differences, too. Aboriginal title is a right to land that was used and occupied by a First Nation in exclusion to other First Nations before 1846. Aboriginal title is a communal right. An individual cannot hold aboriginal title. This means that decisions about land must be made by the community as a whole.

land because we will never get back 100% of our land in Treaty or in Court. So the question had to be reexamined: What types of land do we need to meet Sliammon community needs and can we secured enough land in treaty to meet core needs? Through this approach, Sliammon succeeded in securing 20,564 acres of key lands including 70 km of waterfront. The focus on prime waterfront lands

GWA’SALA-’NAKWAXDA’XW NATIONS YO! NEWS

Another difference from private ownership of land is that aboriginal title land can only be sold to the federal government. 06/13/2014


Aboriginal title is a type of aboriginal right. Generally, aboriginal rights are practices that were integral to the cultural of a First Nation prior to contact with Europeans. Because each First Nation has a different history and culture, each First Nation may have different aboriginal rights. Likely, all First Nations could prove aboriginal rights to hunt and fish. Other potential rights might include:

all work together to protect and develop our aboriginal title in GN territories/ homelands. .

cutting and using trees to build bighouses and other community buildings harvesting plants and medicines Self-determination & self- government Practice one’s own culture and customs including language

3. What is a Treaty?

For G-N we have strong evidence in a lot of these areas but we have not yet proven them in court. This is one reason why we working on negotiating a Treaty to confirm all of the rights in a Treaty.

2. Grassroots aboriginal title In the aboriginal rights movement some people refer to the “Grassroots” as people who are members of First Nations and are not necessarily Chief or Council or elected or hereditary leaders. In the Assembly of First Nations there is often a tension between the Chiefs who get to vote on AFN issues and the “grassroots” members of First Nations who do not get to vote on AFN issues. Some people refer to “Grassroots” title however, legally, there is no such thing as “Grassroots” title. This is because aboriginal title is held by the whole First Nation and not just a group of community members who decide they want to do their own thing. However, the idea of “Grassroots” is important to G-N because we need to make sure that our elected Chief and Council, our hereditary Chiefs and our members

PAGE 8

GWA’SALA-’NAKWAXDA’XW NATIONS YO! NEWS

One reason GN has entered into negotiating a treaty is to be able to define our aboriginal rights with certainty and to protect them (once concluded, treaties are protected in Canadian law under the Constitution).

Under the BC treaty process, a treaty is a negotiated agreement between a First Nation, Canada, and British Columbia. The agreement clearly spells out the rights, responsibilities and relationships of First Nations and the federal and provincial governments. BC has a six stage treaty negotiation process, and GN is in stage 4, negotiation of an ‘agreement in principle’. The agreement in principle defines a range of rights and obligations, and forms the basis for the treaty. With treaty we will have an opportunity to define our rights and title as we think they should be. Treaty negotiations involve many important and complex issues such as: Land ownership Environmental protection Roads and rights of way Wildlife management Forestry, fisheries and other resources Governance Financial benefits Collecting tax revenues from businesses and individuals In future Yo! News we will look at the benefits of a treaty as well as questions about how our lands, rights and funding can be protected. We welcome any questions or comments.

June 6th, 2014 Good Food Bag Recipes

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to say that I am very happy to join the team that has made the Good Food Bag happen and to continue the work Lucy and others have stated. I’m going to keep following Lucy’s format and include a few recipes as well as the extras bag and whenever possible I will try including a traditional food. I’m very excited to meet and work with everyone! I really welcome feedback so if you have any suggestions, don’t hesitate to let me know.

Lemon Baked Chicken with Potatoes, Tomatoes and Herbs Here’s a fresh tasting meal with lemon, herbs and vegetables just in time for summer. One pot baked meals helps to cut down with dishes and is a good alternative to fried cooking. This meal is full of nutritious vegetables like tomatoes, spinach and potatoes, all rich in vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber which will keep you full while helping reduce high cholesterol levels and is good for helping maintain proper blood sugar levels. Ingredients  2 chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces  2-3 potatoes, chopped into bite size pieces  2 Tomatoes, cut into quarters (smaller if desired)  1 tbsp dried basil (2 tbsp if fresh, chopped)  1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped (or 2 tbsp dried if fresh not available)  1 lemon  black pepper to taste  2 tsp olive oil  1 Cup Spinach

And if ever you don’t understand something in the recipe or would like to know if you could substitute anything, don’t be shy, give me a shout! Hope you enjoy! - Michelle 240-714-4117 michellehelenebeaulieu@hotmail.com

Preparation

1. Chop the chicken and potatoes into bite size pieces and toss them into a baking dish with the olive oil, pepper and chopped PAGE 10

lemon. Bake @ 350°F for 20 minutes. * Use the entire lemon chopped (rind and juice) to add extra flavor to the dish. You can later dispose of the cooked lemon when you dish the meal out on your plate.

 1 fresh lime, juiced
  1 diced shallot (can substitute 2 tbsp regular onion diced)  2 tbsp honey, or to taste
  ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
  1/4 tsp ground ginger
  1 1/2 tsp of toasted sesame oil, or to taste  1 tbsp olive oil

2. Add the chopped tomatoes, spinach, parsley and basil, toss and bake for another 10 minutes. 3. Serve on a plate or in a bowl. Enjoy!

Preparation: 1. Combine all of the dressing ingredients into a small blender and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a blender, chopping the ingredients into small pieces and stirring until blended will do the same trick. If you prefer a stronger taste of the toasted sesame oil, add a bit more, but remember a little goes a long way!

Sweet Sesame-Lime Cabbage Salad Here’s an easy salad that you can have as a side dish or a full meal by adding chicken, sausage, fish or leave it vegetarian by adding chickpeas, yum! Great for something light when you don’t want to cook a big meal on a hot day. Grated carrots are something a little different you can toss into just about any salad making it easy to get Vitamin A, which is good for your vision and immune system.

2. Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl, and toss well with the prepared dressing. Shred carrots with the largest size of your cheese grater. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge before serving. 3. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Ingredients For the salad:    

½ cabbage, thinly sliced 1-2 grated carrots 2 green onions, chopped 1 handful of fresh cilantro, chopped (optional) – not provided

For the dressing: PAGE 11

refined sugars. While the natural sugars in the fruit satisfies your taste buds, cantaloupe boosts your system with vitamins (A and C) and because it’s rich in Vitamin B6 it helps regulate your metabolism and blood sugars.

2. Chop the mint into small pieces and add to the blender. Blend all ingredients until smooth. 3. For Sorbet, add mixture in a container and place in the freezer for 3-4 hours or until frozen but still slightly soft (you’ll have to stir occasionally to get the desired consistency and keep it from freezing completely). 4. For popsicles, the mixture should be completely frozen - Great way to re-use individual yogurt containers (or ice cube trays) by filling them up with the cantaloupe mixture and placing a popsicle stick in the center. Fun and delicious for adults and kids!

Ingredients   

½ Cantaloupe, seeded, peeled and chopped 2 sprigs of Mint, chopped ¼ cup Water

Directions 1. Chop the cantaloupe and place into blender add ¼ cup water.
