Anishinabek Nation and the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations call for action on the Day School Class Action Settlement

Survivors repeatedly report receiving lower levels than deserved and have been deprived of the ability to disclose further proof as they acquire or remember it. Survivors are also unable to re-apply for their deserved compensation level. Across this country, federally-funded Day Schools have been left off of this eligibility list. Survivors continue to be re-traumatized as they and their families are forced to relive the trauma as they write their narratives for a stranger to review.

Skiing on a sacred mountain: Indigenous Americans stand against a resort’s expansion

At the center of the Snowbowl controversy is the resort’s snowmaking operations, an increasingly necessary tool as climate breakdown causes snowfall to be less predictable. Snowbowl manufactures its artificial snow with reclaimed water from Flagstaff’s sewage system, a method approved by the forest service as part of an earlier resort expansion plan in 2005. It was the first resort in the country to use reclaimed water for snowmaking; since then a ski area in Montana and one in California have also adopted the practice.

The AMC Responds to the Loss of Life of Another First Nations Woman

First Nations women are severely impacted by the lack of access to resources to address poverty and homelessness, violence and discrimination, and domestic violence. The AMC has tried to seek funding and work with Canada to offer more support for unsheltered women.

Ontario First Nations request federal support to extend Indian day school claims deadline

In 2019, Canada signed a $1.47-billion settlement with thousands of former students of the federally funded day school system. While separate from the residential school system, Indian or federal day schools were a part of a federal policy aimed at assimilating Indigenous children, and often had affiliations to the Roman Catholic, United, Anglican and other churches. Nearly 700 day schools operated across Canada between 1863 and 2000. The claims process opened in January 2020 and the deadline to submit a claim for compensation is July 13.
