INTERVIEW WITH DEFENDERS CO-FOUNDER

INTERVIEW WITH DEFENDERS CO-FOUNDER

Arthur Manuel is spokesperson and founder of the Defenders of the Land and a spokesperson for the Indigenous Network on Economies and Trade.

Former Chief of the Neskonlith Band and chairperson of the Interior Alliance of BC First Nations, Manuel has been a leading voice of opposition to the Canadian government’s agenda to “extinguish” Aboriginal and Treaty rights and assimilate Indigenous peoples into the Canadian body politic. On a local level Manuel has actively defended Shuswap land (during the expansion of the Sun Peaks resort). He has been active at the national level and has also taken the struggle international, following in the path of his father, the late George Manuel, President of the National Indian Brotherhood and founder of the World Council of Indigenous Peoples.
