This document provides a road map to follow, and in particular provides sound legal information on the subject of how the Supreme Court Of Canada (SCC) views Aboriginal Title, how such title is established, and how this title to lands can be continued through the act of possession of the land. Or in other words being on the land implies title to the land, and any claim of ownership of the land by other parties such as the Crown must be proven in law.

The paper quotes extensively from the SCC decision of Delgamuukw v. British Columbia.

Above is a short clip of the very end of the Mayan Ceremony that was performed by a couple from Guatemala on Sunday May 2nd. Many of the original supporters and founders joined together for a spiritual blessing for the Sutikalh settlement first established in May 2000.
Filming of the ceremony was not allowed as we gathered around the fire circle that began with several candles that were lighted. Candles were also handed out to all and we were asked to put our candles into the fire.
There was a good turn out as Rosalin spoke to everyone and thanked all who have given in some way to the cause that gave birth to the Sutikalh settlement that was established to preserve the pristine wilderness of the Melvin Creek Valley for generations to come.
Many thanks are owed to the people who supplied and prepared the great food for the lunch after the ceremony.
