Indian Rights

Business Resolution

The thrust of continental policy is now, as it has been historically, the steady expropriation of Indian land and water resources for the benefit of whites in the United States. The practice has been to locate the Indians on the most arid and least productive land. In Canada, Native treaty rights are continually being eroded.

BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1970 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association urges support of the independent, indigenous organizations:

  1. In opposing the continued exploitation of the Indians, Eskimos, and Aleuts;
  2. In demanding an end to the continued encroachment by ranching, mining, lumbering, and hydro-electric interests upon their human rights, ancestral homelands, and water resources; and
  3. In insisting upon adequate reparations for past and present injustices perpetrated upon them.
