The chief of the Assembly of First Nations says he will be putting up a teepee at the Justice for Our Stolen Children camp in Regina to show his solidarity with the protesters.

Perry Bellegarde visited the camp on Sunday to “hear directly from them on the systemic discrimination within the legal system and the failures of the child welfare system.”
