Monthly publication on issues related to the Friendship Centre Movement.
Abstract: This B.C. Indian publication is politically oriented. In this issue, it tries to articulate the Indian position on Aboriginal Right and Land Claims in B.C. and nationally. It does this by publishing the STALO DECLARATION, which outlines the basis for negotiation of Native Title and Aboriginal Rights with the Federal and Provincial governments. In essence, this Declaration argues for recognition not settlement or termination of their land claims. Another article is on Yvonne Wanrow, an American Indian heroine and leader in AIM, presently appealing a murder sentence. Provincially, this publication keeps the various Friendship Centres informed about one another and tries to keep the native peoples informed about various government programmes that may be of particular benefit to them, such as the establishment of a Legal Services Commission, and the hiring of "Native Employment Specialists" by Manpower and Immigration.
