NORTH BAY— “Look at the situation of global warming climate change. Our philosophy is needed now more than ever.”
Nipissing First Nation Ogimaa Scott McLeod spoke those words at the Economic Development, Lands and Resources Forum where First Nations from Anishinabek Nation gathered in North Bay at the Best Western from February 14 to 16.
The Economic Development, Lands and Resources Forum is a chance to collaborate on priorities regarding lands, resources, and economic sovereignty, says Anishinabek Nation Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe. Workshops and presentations were given by Indigenous and industry experts and government representatives, with opportunities for networking to discuss challenges and successes.
Nipissing First Nation Ogimaa Scott McLeod opened the event by saying protecting the land with natural law is the Indigenous way when considering economic opportunities.
