RAVEN is a small but mighty registered charity with a mission to raise legal defence funds to help Indigenous Peoples in Canada defend their treaty rights and the integrity of their traditional lands and cultures. We stand shoulder to shoulder in support of the rights of Indigenous Peoples, so that we can achieve equity for the people on whose land we live.
RAVEN’s vision is a country that honours the ancestral laws, rights and stewardship values of Indigenous Peoples and their equitable access to the justice system within a thriving natural environment. We hope for a day when our vision is realized and our services are no longer needed because constitutional democracy is flourishing. Until then, we do our best to level the playing field.
It’s not every day that we come across an organization such as yours that would assist First Nations with such a cause as ours. Mahsi cho for all your efforts and to RAVEN for providing fundraising and support to the Peel Land Use Planning court session. It has been an honour to work with you on this initiative. ~ Chief Roberta Joseph, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in
