 [Wulustukyieg Traditional Longhouse Council of Tobic NDIGENOUS INJUNCTION]
In the tradition of the Wulustukieg we issue this warning along with a request for our two Council Fires to meet in order to sit as equals in Council so as to discuss and hopefully resolve our differences.
On this day, January 28, 2010, we the Wulustukieg (Maliseet) Nation, original stewards, occupiers and keepers of our Skigineeweekog homeland (New Brunswick) proclaim and extend this Indigenous Notice to the public informing them of our Indigenous Injunction.
1) This Indigenous Injunction declares that our Traditional Law of Peace and Respect has never been given up, ceded, surrendered, terminated or compromised in any way shape or form. In short, Aboriginal law is still the law within our homeland and very much in effect.
2) That our Wulustukieg Nation through this notice is asserting our great Creator-given power under the Traditional Law of Peace and Respect thereby rendering all foreign enacted laws within our homeland moot, sterile and non-effective.
3) That the present day Memorandum of Understanding(s) (MOU) written and agreed upon by two foreign powers (New Brunswick and Quebec) regarding the sale of our peoples’ natural resources be deemed illegal and null and void in accordance to Specific Articles of Rights contained within the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (see Specific Articles of Rights in attached Appendix)
4) This Indigenous Injunction formally places both New Brunswick and Quebec on notice to cease and desist in their efforts to buy and sell what, in fact, does not belong to them. -Nid Layig!
