The following attempts to address why these people still suffer in silence.   Why they are not represented at the Chiefs' Table or featured in the Idle No More movement, even though the atrocity is so well documented.    It is difficult to unite in common purpose as the wounds are still raw, the emotions still at the surface; less than a generation has passed since some lived without roads or electricity.   Yes, even in BC, Canada, not 30 years ago some tribes had no direct link or contact routes.   It was only 150 years ago when this region was even entered to explore.

 

These were not nomadic people.    Huge 1000-sq-ft homes built of cedar along with settlements of dozens of these structures formed municipalities belonging to each Nation.    Seasonal travel for harvesting and extensive trading was engaged in with neighbouring tribes. North and east trading with the Carrier and Dene tribes, and to the south by huge 50-foot canoes with others.   Grease trails were recorded as protected trade routes throughout all of these Nations territories.   They knew their land and they owned their land.    Totems and Feast halls marked their territories.    Nation-to-Nation territorial treaties were commonplace.    Trespass could mean death, especially if you harmed any life form within the recognized territorial boundaries.     Yet other areas were recognized as neutral lands and water where all Nations could meet and share without territorial conflicts.

Totem Poles at the Core of the Sacred Circle, Damelahamid by Terrace Daily News

 

Maybe this is why the Tsimshian, Haisla, Gitxsan, Wetsuweten, Tlingit, Haida, Tahltan, and Nisgaa are ignored; as long as no one knows this special place exists their territories can still be quietly stolen.

It is specifically about these peoples' lands the Canadian Government passed its recent legislation, Bills C38 and C45.  They did this to justify their continued assault, which began with the deliberate genocide of these peoples by germ warfare.   The Canadian government wishes to conduct a final solution on these people for the Mining and Petroleum industries.

 

While the Cree, Sioux, Apache, Iroquois, with the AFN, the UBCIC, and others achieve media prominence, the Sacred Circle genocide and social dysfunction continues.

 

All of the following material was compiled by researching online. The following are three links to much of the source material:
