Storyboard Text

  • Hi I'm a representative from the Yale Nation and I'm here today to talk about our treaty with everyone today because it is a very controversial and significant milestone for us since we are a very small nation of about ~150 people!
  • To answer the first question, the negotiations between the Yale Nation and government has been in progress for almost two decades! Recently there have been critical flaws with the treaty so the final stage, the implementation has been delayed for two years so we are eagerly waiting to push out the treaty!
  • The treaty is going to allow many forms of self government for our nation once it's implemented! Currently the the terms on the treaty allows us to govern mineral rights, education, harvesting rights, forestry and fisheries, and provides us the right to govern and protect our culture!
  • This agreement allows us to protect and preserve our culture! We are able to make laws to protect our Heritage sites and historic artifacts. We are also allowing museums to showcase our artifacts for people studying and learning our culture
  • We hope this agreement has a positive impact on all the non-indigenous people! We are hoping to see people acknowledge our culture and respect our lands that were rightfully ours to begin with. Forming this agreement would allow us to form healthy relationships with each other and allow us to live with each other on mutual terms
  • The government and the Yale Nation will be working together by protecting our heritage sites and by distributing lands and resources evenly so that we can sustain our environment together while living with mutual respect for each other.
