First Nations Peacekeeping Conference Summary Report
On behalf of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indians Nations, I am pleased to present the summary report of the First Nations Peacekeeping Conference that was held November 26 and 27, 2007 in Saskatoon. The conference provided valuable information about peacekeeping options and also provided an
opportunity for First Nations to participate in the discussions.I would like to thank the Elders who gave their time so generously, conference presenters who brought “food for thought” to the conference participants, workshop facilitators and note takers who ensured that the presenters’ ideas were accurately captured, and the audio visual technician who recorded the plenary sessions. The contributions of these individuals have offered new approaches to First Nations development.
The conference was made possible through the financial support of Public Safety Canada, Saskatchewan Justice, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Saskatchewan Indian Cultural Centre, and SaskTel. Thank you for your support and willingness to partner on this initiative.
It is my hope that this report will serve as a working document for First Nations who wish to design their own peacekeeping structures and processes. We look forward to a follow up conference next year.
