To the Table:
I pay tribute to our Creator and Ancestors. For it was
our Forefathers who had the courage and foresight to believe that future
generations would continue to keep our valued traditions alive and
protect our resources for the further generations.
I would like to be involved with our governing bodies
(NPTEC, Resolutions Committee, Tribal Programs, etc.) to decide what is
the best interest for our people. For it's our people who should
come first in order to keep all its members alive to continue into the
future as a Nation.
I encourage everyone to vote and be heard.
Thanks to Everyone,
Arthur M. Broncheau
As a Nation, our Natural Resources should be
protected by our Treaty Rights. Our people should have the full benefits
of Hunting, Fishing and gathering thus keeping our Culture alive in these
Health Care, Education and Employment should be a
priority for Our People to be healthy educated people. We as a
people would be able to be more self sufficient.
Our Tribal members would benefit being employed within
our own Tribal Programs which comes the rewards of Health Care,
Education and a future for our children's children to continue our
struggle to be a Nation, a Nimipuu Nation
