REGINA – The organization that represents 74 First Nations in Saskatchewan says it supports a decision by a group of protesters not to remove their teepees from the grounds of the provincial legislature.
On Monday the protesters met with a group of cabinet ministers to discuss concerns about racial injustice and the disproportionate number of First Nations children apprehended by child-welfare workers.
On Tuesday, Justice Minister Don Morgan said he won’t consider a second meeting with the protest camp until the teepees are taken down.
The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations says it will support the protesters any way it.
Federation Chief Bobby Cameron says the organization is happy and humbled about what the camp is trying to achieve.
Cameron says he doesn’t see the teepees leaving any time soon.
