The Reconciliation Manifesto: Recovering the Land and Rebuilding the Economy

In January 2017, Indigenous communities were rocked by the loss of a tremendous leader. Arthur Manuel, a leader and activist from the Secwepemc Nation, stood on the front lines and his unwavering determination and strength in the fight for Indigenous rights have been a beacon of hope for many. As Shiri Pasternak remarked: “Art taught us to better people. He changed the way we saw the world. He showed us a different way to relate to the world.” It is this pursuit of justice that guides and inspires those of us who continue to defend the land and water, and fight for Indigenous rights.
