At contact there was 100,000 native peoples of Cowichan Coast Salish Territory during 1900 and by 1925 there was only 25,000 people and now there is only 2,200 members in Cowichan and 5,000 members off-reserve. The native people of Cowichan are becoming systemically wiped out from genocide. We do not want privatization of land sales - the Province nor Canada has not honored the original agreement at contact. If there is NO Consultation with the people then there is a Breach of Trust and one Nation violating the other. Canada is Violating their fiduciary agreement with Natives. Bring honesty and truth to the table with all Hereditary Leaders; we can discuss the future of our lands and resources, until then its time for Compensation for all the theft through deceptive laws made by Canada. Restore the lands to Native Peoples because of the great land theft since Contact! Reconciliation - Restore Lands.
