Scope and contentFile contains a presentation by Paul Stevens, Wallace Belleau and Bob Pelletier of the Ojibwe Peacekeepers Society. Stevens briefly explains the history of the Society as an organization of concerned Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal persons who are dedicated to the pursuit and the advancement of Aboriginal issues. The society acts as an advocacy group to ensure that treaties are adhered to. The Peacekeepers also peacefully protects citizens in their own land from outside forces if so requested by that tribal government or that particular First Nation. Belleau speaks about the 1990 Oka Crisis and Pelletier speaks briefly about his role in the organization as elder. Following the presentation is a lengthy question-and-answer session with the Commissioners.
