Participate in the Sovereignty Project

 

THIS is What Sovereignty Looks Like

An International Sovereignty Project

We invite schools, artists, design students, communicators and those with a point of view about Indigenous sovereignty to participate in our “THIS is What Sovereignty Looks Like.” Project.

We have designed these posters which we hope will travel around the world - and we invite you to print and post them.

Our hope is that our posters will make their way around the world; that you, your school, your organization, your family, your community will display the poster proudly and in as many places as you like – reminding the world that Sovereign peoples do exist, do continue to self-determine and continue to fight colonization and imperialism with the strongest tool possible: sovereignty.

In turn, we invite you to create your vision of what 'THIS is What Sovereignty Looks Like" and share them with us.

We will host many, many of the designs, drawings, photographs, records, representations and design of your vision of what sovereignty looks like on our website.  We invite you to submit your understanding of what Sovereignty looks like to our website for the generation of discussion, dialogue and imagery of Sovereignty and Indigenous peoples around the world.

How Can You Take Action

The Lubicon Lake Nation is currently facing an aggressive campaign to undermine the authority of our traditional government. The Government of Canada is refusing to recognize and acknowledge the Government of the Lubicon Lake Nation, opting instead to develop a process external to our territory and exclusive of our traditional government. This process silences our people and amplifies the voices and agendas which reflect and resonate with Canada’s goals for the Nation, disregarding the people, process and understandings of the core of the Lubicon Lake Nation.

You can support the Lubicon in the recognition of our territoriality, authority and self-determination in a number of ways.

  1. Make your voice heard. Contact the Government of Canada directly and let them know that you support the Lubicon people and the mandate they have provided their rightful government. You can do so by directing a letter to Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development. For ease of use, a letter is provided here (link) to let the Government of Canada know that you do not support their current actions in developing a strategy outside of the Nation and which does not confer with or acknowledge the Lubicon Lake Nation Government. We encourage you to contact National and Regional Aboriginal and Northern Development officials directly in order to make your position known. You can do so by directing your call, email or correspondence to:

  3. Participate in Our International Sovereignty Project. “THIS is What Sovereignty Looks Like” allows participants to design, draw, photograph, record, and represent through design, technology and artistry their vision of sovereignty.

Welcome to the website for the Lubicon Lake Nation

We are the Lubicon Lake Nation: a sovereign and self-determining peoples. The Lubicon Lake Nation is a distinct Indigenous Nation with a well-defined traditional Territory in what is now known as north-central Alberta, Canada (see Map). We are Cree peoples, Neheyiwak, and were and have been hunting, fishing and trapping on our Traditional Territory long before the creation of Canada. We continue to occupy and protect our Traditional Territory today. We have never surrendered or ceded our land to a foreign government. Our Nation maintains jurisdiction over, authority for, and autonomy of our Traditional Territory, Nation and peoples.
