Scope and contentFile contains a presentation by Shirley Adamson, Council for Yukon Indians. Adamson, chairperson for the Vuntut Gwich'in Council, discusses the self-governance negotiations which her organization has embarked upon with the Government of Canada. The respective First Nations parties involved in such negotiations included the Vuntut Gwi'chin Tribal Council, the Na-cho Ny'a'k Dun First Nation, the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, and the Teslin/Tlingit First Nation. Adamson also discusses land claims and Constitutional concerns, while describing the process for implementing said self-governance agreements. She suggests that the Commission "recommend to Canada that it provide constitutional protection to our self-government agreements." Following Adamson's presentation the assembled Commissioners discuss her proposal with her.
