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.”
The camp was set up in Wascana Park across from the Legislative Assembly 163 days ago. Between 20 and 30 people have been camping there, demanding that the government make changes to the justice system and address what the protesters call an overrepresentation of Indigenous children in foster care.
