Steven: We have had many human right violations occur here during our stay. We need to put in the correct wording otherwise we will not be taken seriously. How to document in a court of opinion. The people are shooting us are the people we are suppose to report to. This conference is to teach us how to properly document for maximum effectiveness of our statements. A lot of us do not know about the court system. How to document the atrocities that have fallen upon our people. I am hoping to educate myself cause our voices are important.
Brook: The chair of the UN was here today and his interpreter. His speech was about people coming forward and documenting their stories. I was surprised to hear how often this has been going on. We do not hear about it in main stream. To be given the opportunity to learn how to have our stories documented properly and be heard. We have to do this in the right way. It is a part of the healing process as well to tell your story and have somebody document it.
Very emotional watching atrocities going on in other places. Another thing that was emphasized. Their are other ways we can have human rights violated. Like desecrating sacred sites.Brook for example Environmental racism is like how Bismarck turned down the pipeline and sent it south to our treaty lands.
