What We Believe In

Our nations have been benefitting from our natural resources for thousands of years, and they have made us culturally rich and highly organized. We, with other Nations, must get back to using our resources in a sustainable way. While some resources will not be replenished in our lifespan, we can develop these resources using the best technology available to us, and use the benefits to ensure the survival of our cultures, and the prosperity and good health of our people. We can adapt to ongoing changes and opportunities while maintaining who we are.

Our Vision

To connect Indigenous people that seek to utilize their resources in their respective areas in a way that benefits their culture and society as a whole, and to manage their land in a way that is sustainable, respectful, and helps them thrive.

Our Mandate

To provide a platform for Indigenous voices that are supportive of Indigenous participation in resource development.
