FHQ Youth Council Supports Justice for Our Stolen Children Camp
(Treaty 4 Territory) At a regularly convened meeting, members of the FHQ Youth Council discussed the situation at the Saskatchewan legislative building between the Justice for Our Stolen Children Camp and the recent conduct of the Provincial Capital Commission (Wascana Authority), and the meeting with the Provincial Government. The FHQ Youth Council are inspired by and support the work the Camp is doing to bring to light the many issues all Canadians face, particularly the people of Saskatchewan, as these issues are not exclusive to Indigenous Peoples, but everyone.
“We hope to see real change come from this and expect the Provincial Government to set their differences aside and honestly work toward a better future for us and the kids that aren’t born yet.” Said Jaime Bigknife of Little Black Bear’s Band of Cree and Assiniboine during a roundtable discussion.
The members of the FHQ Youth Council would like to sincerely thank the Justice for Our Stolen Children Camp for their extraordinary efforts to work towards a solution to the failed public policies that make this camp necessary, and encourage everyone, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, to support these efforts in a peaceful way. “I hope the governments hear us and we never have to do something like this again.” Said Bigknife during the roundtable discussion.
The FHQ Youth Council consists of representatives from our 11 Member First Nations, as well as honourary seats for youth citizens representing the 5 Indigenous Languages of Southern Saskatchewan. The recently formed FHQ Youth Council meets monthly to discuss current affairs, governance, cultures, and languages.
