Signing Without Consent – An insult to the Wet’suwet’en people

At first it appeared like a case of “impaired posting” when we witnessed Warner Naziel (the stolen Smogelgem title) declare that the Wet’suwet’en had reached a consensus on a land claims process they had negotiated between the Federal and Provincial governments. However 3 out of the 5 clans have indicated that they have yet to come to a decision on the agreement. The Office of Wet’suwet’en shut down due to COVID, explained that everything would go on hold, the clans could not meet to adhere to the rules of Covid 19 and the need to social distance, in particular for sake of the elders.

In fact its an outright lie to suggest the Wet’suwet’en people have reached a consensus, the truth is the Wet’suwet’en  Office Chiefs reached a consensus and imposed that decision on the Wet’suwet’en  Nation.

 

Now it appears that COVID 19 has become the smokescreen for the same group of 5 chiefs to hide behind, and make completely untrue statements about reaching a consensus. Looks like they went from stolen titles to stolen consent, makes one wonder what they will do next?

 

Warner posted this on April 24th 2020

 

A few days later on 27th 2020 the “Wet’suwet’en Access Point on Gidimt’en Territory” Molly’s Facebook page, they write a different story.

Molly’s Facebook page 3 days after Warner’s tweet. (looks like he made a decision without notifying the Gidim’en Clan

 

Knowing full well that the clans could not hold any meetings to refute what the 5 Chiefs have done, it comes down to very dirty politics by a group of greedy old men. For the “Office” to proceed this way means they no longer are asking the Wet’suwet’en people for their opinion, they have decided for them what their opinion will be.

Its also hard to know if the NDP role in this, is a case of dumb and dumber or if there is conspiracy involved.

Are the NDP that stupid they do not know what the elected Wet’suwet’en officials are saying, that they represent the nation based on one vote per Wet’suwet’en adult vs 5 grumpy old men imposing their ideals on a Wet’suwet’en Nation.

In a letter elected leadership makes it clear the people did not vote in consensus to support the Wet’suwet’en Office Chiefs, see the letter below.

So where does this leave us now, having spoken to a number of matriarchs who live in Witset, all are saying no meeting ever occurred and are dumbfounded at the governments complicity in this deal that is supposed to united a nation, as opposed to what appears more like an attempt to destroy it. In an effort to spin the truth these same chiefs now say the meetings were held on Zoom, however they cannot even come up with a list of those who were represented via Zoom or any other social media. This is a very dirty game them are spinning on the Wet’suwet’en Nation.

Now we are talking about a deal between the Wet’suwet’en people (who are not allowed to decide for themselves if they support the deal) and the people of both British Columbia and Canada who also are not allowed to see the contents of this deal. The secrecy about what is in this deal should be setting off alarm bells all across our nation, both the Wet’suwet’en people and everyone who is a citizen of Canada will be forever tied to an agreement they are not allowed to see. Why is the visible truth such a threat to both British Columbia NDP and Federal Liberals? Why the need to hide it from both nations except the “chosen few?”

OH inhale before you all say WTF is going on here?

OK I did not expect to write that, but its fitting for the occasion. Having boldly made the last statement, I will try outdo myself however I say this very seriously.

Its time that  CN Rail, CGL, and the elected leaders of the Wet’suwet’en Nation jointly work together, and file a lawsuit against the Office of the Wet’suwet’en, its time to put an end to the shenanigans of a completely out of control group of male chauvinistic elders who are power crazed and completely failing as leaders of the Wet’suwet’en Nation.

 

During these difficult times we remember our teachings and our laws. Our Dinï ze’ reminisce and discuss these destructive changes.
We echo our neighbours and relatives “Heal the land, heal the people” and encourage everyone to prepare for the worst as we pray for the best. Keep your language speakers safe and lean into the land for health and safety.

Note the words in the above statement and remember, the joke is on you and me, a lot is being said and done, but it is most certainly NOT the ways of our forefathers.

 

 

ADDENDUM: There were only 35 Laksilyu (Small Frog) members who joined the discussion on April 22nd at 2PM, not even close to a quorum, less than 25% of eligible voters. The largest representation came from the Basil family being close to 1/3rd of that group.



Thanks for having taken the time to visit and read our articles. I had my say, feel free to post your thoughts as well, be part of making a difference.

    I was waiting for something like this. I knew some how they use covid to their advantage or try to sneak something in. To keep it short can they really sign this without consent from all bands? Like who made these 5 people I say people not chiefs. I do not know how the system works but someone wake up stand up and get your people in order. I am just a white colonists that lives here and pissed off if the ones that can fix this don’t. I see no win for anyone if the fab 5 use iron fist rule. Signed still hoping common sense rules

    Last comment was on general negotiations with government but we all know its end result is money for the fab 5 ( and hotel hooligans)and the pipeline. 99 or more percent of anyone has never seen the right of way where the pipeline is going through this territory. Who would , bugs eat you alive in summer. And cold big snow winter. At least the hooligan hotel calls themselves a “camp” now not healing centre. That’s another story . PS what what do you think they cook and heat with? Propane or wood? I’ve been through there BS checkpoint many times and have never had a native person check me out allways white pro protesters. That being said I hope what ever the fake 5 negotiated pipeline or not it’s in the nation’s best Intrest. Speak up.

    Who is surprised this is happening. The Fab 5 are doing a coup d etat of the system with the help of government officials who are too scared of being called racists to do anything about it. No one knows what this MOU covers and this makes this even more scarier

    My son is Laksilyu Clan and he has not seen the MOU and did not have the opportunity to vote or have a say. Ron Mitchell is lieing.

    The MOU is not giving any confidence to any other treaty or self government situations across Canada. All it is showing anyone is the pathway to get a treaty with the Govt of Canada is to allow non elected individuals that have no checks and balances to blockade roads and railways and you will get what you want. Not necessarily what your nation wants. Now the OW effectively, with this paper, is the sole negotiating partner, and the people that were elected have no voice in this negotiation. It is sad.
