Tsilhqot’in Nation Announces Release of Draft Mining Policy

July 31, 2014

By Bruce McIvor

As most people by now know, the recent Supreme Court of Canada Tsilhqot’in decision is a game changer for Indigenous—non-Indigenous relations in Canada (see my earlier post). Today’s release of the Tsilhqot’in Nation’s draft mining policy is a prime example of what to expect—the exercise of Indigenous laws based on Indigenous values and aspirations.

Here’s the press release from the Tsilhqot’in National Government as well as the draft policy and accompanying map.
