David Courchene, Nii Gaani Aki Innini (Leading Earth Man)“As the Original free and independent Peoples of this land, we have the distinction of being the roots of our homeland.  This positions us with the responsibility to be the true leaders and the voice of our homeland.  Our leadership is embedded in spiritual and natural laws, guided by the Spirit and honouring the natural laws of Mother Earth.

“We all belong to the land.  We owe our life to the land.  Our ancestors agreed to share the land with everyone.  The intent of our People has always been to share the land and take care of it together.”

    Beautifully stated. It takes very few words to impart great wisdom. While I am not aboriginal it is my belief that we should all live by these words. Thank you Dave.
