LETTER: Indigeneous Protocol Should Name Sinixt

Gabriel Keczan says it's commendable that Nelson city council has a new First Nations protocol, but he feels it should acknowledge the Sinixt by name.— Image Credit: Nelson Star File Photo

Re: “Aboriginal protocol is weak

 

I am writing to thank K. Linda Kivi for her letter. I appreciate her words on the weakness of Nelson’s aboriginal protocol with regards to our presence, as Canadians, in these unceded Sinixt territories.

Re: “Nelson adopts aboriginal acknowledgement

 

If truth is the first step toward reconciliation, then in 2016 on the 60th anniversary of the declaration of extinction of the Sinixt/Arrow Lakes people for the purposes of Canada’s Indian Act, we in the West Kootenay are still far from our goal.
