Claim settlements, environmental assessments, a possible 11th province featured in this week's Bamoseda report

This week on Bamoseda: Friday, Jan. 29

Bamoseda, hosted by Jennifer Ashawasegai, is an Aboriginal news magazine radio program, which features national Aboriginal news, current affairs, features on community and culture, spotlights on entertainment and a cross section of musical genres from very talented artists in the Aboriginal community.

It’s being called the largest specific claim settlement in Canada, the Mississaugas of New Credit in Ontario will soon be holding a referendum on the Agreement in Principle on the Toronto Purchase specific claim.

Mississaugas of New Credit Chief Bryan LaForme explained the details along with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada Minister Chuck Strahl.

The Union of BC Chiefs has called for Canada to begin to implement findings from a Supreme Court Decision regarding environmental assessments. Grand Chief Stewart Phillip wants the findings applied to all mining, oil and gas proposals in British Columbia.

An 11th province? Winnipeg journalist Colleen Simard thinks it’s a good idea, she agreed with a magazine writer, that all First Nations in the country should amalgamate into one province.

Danny Beaton, Turtle Clan Mohawk from Six Nations, who is an environmental and Indigenous rights activist, and he is a recipient of a National Aboriginal Achievement Award, told Bamoseda about his work.

The politically incorrect gaffe from a pair of Russion Ice skaters is starting to blow over a little, but the Editor of the National Indigenous Times Amy McGuire in Australia said not only is the act disgusting and culturally inappropriate, it could have been avoided through self-education.
