Bloodless Kichesipirini Genocide Proves All Canadian Domestic Policy Abrogates and Derogates Inherent Aboriginal Rights

Paula LaPierre is a mother, grandmother, writer, artist, researcher and international Aboriginal political activist. She is Principal Sachem of the Kichesipirini Algonquin First Nation, a pre-existing Aboriginal nation unilaterally erased from the public record through illegal colonial domestic policy despite extensive historical record and documentation. LaPierre contends that all Canadian domestic policy is intentionally designed to eradicate, abrogate and derogate the strongest of inherent Aboriginal rights replacing them with lesser benefits determined by the Crown and corporate agents. Having completed extensive independent archival research that does not employ the categories and dictates of domestic policy identity manipulations the true identities and histories of the Canadian Indigenous nations emerge and challenge the myths generated through colonization propaganda. By employing traditional Indigenous values as the foundation of research exploring identity and native political history evidence surfaces proving the Aboriginal peoples as founding peoples of Canada, long before Confederation, worthy of full legal recognition and just compensation according to conventions and principles of international law. LaPierre employs as foundations in her research methodology completely independent of domestic influence the two fundamental pillars of Indigenous law and identity;

 

Genealogy, and Geography

Aboriginal nations were established and maintained through positive kinship relations and territorial attachment, title and jurisdiction. Contrary to colonial myth Kichesipirini history proves;

    

Traditional Aboriginal nations were autonomous nations, usually organized in systems of federation, Traditional Aboriginal nations exercised various forms of land tenure systems, Traditional Aboriginal nations were inclusive and citizenship was adaptive and dynamic, Traditional Aboriginal nations exercised self-determination in various economic activities, including Treaties amongst each other, for the continued prosperity and self-preservation of their nations, Traditional Aboriginal policies were diverse, holistic and intergenerational covenants inclusive of spiritual obligations to the Creator, ancestors, descendents and the environment.

LaPierre asserts that the deliberate exclusion of these aspects of Indigenous Canadian history and the associated international laws robs the Indigenous people of critical information needed to effectively exercise free, prior and informed consent in the development and rightful enjoyment of self-determination, social and political equality and the inherent right of Indigenous peoples in their spiritual roles as environmental stewards. A comprehensive and contextual examination of the actual historical record, inclusive of those nations colonizers would prefer not exist, such as the Kichesipirini, clearly demonstrates that Traditional Aboriginal Title and Jurisdiction outside the confines of domestic policy are of no threat to the common interests of the Canadian nation, and are in fact Constitutionally protected, but do challenge the unfettered agendas of globalization and asserted jurisdiction to natural resources by multinational corporations and the associated elitist profiteering. Unbeknownst to most , claims LaPierre, current domestic policy in uncontested right of the Crown, apart from Traditional Aboriginal Title and Jurisdiction of pre-existing Aboriginal nations, places the rights of all Canadian citizens in conflict of interests with the sovereignty still claimed by the imperial Crown.

LaPierre emphatically claims that the legitimate resolution of actual Indigenous rights in Canada regarding Traditional Aboriginal Title and Jurisdiction requires international judiciary adjunction.
