As a Board member of Coast Funds (their website address is I am privileged to be offered insight into First Nations within the Great Bear Rainforest.  On February 5th, the Board and staff of Coast Funds were taught by a First Nation's elder about the history of engagement among First Nations and the colonial and then Canadian goverments, including the enormous changes created through the legal system in the last 40 years. 

The elder recommends this paper as background reading. If you'd like to discuss it, give me a phone call or email.  In my judgement, this is an important aspect of reconciliation.
