“We are always looking for ways to have a better life. Our children today are really adapted to the modern life they are living in.

They ‘ll hear about our culture and traditions. I hope our children will have more tools to live in the modern life than we do.

For us, those our age and older we have to fight so hard for our rights when often things are already decided for us. I would like to know when this mining project will start and finish; how will they operate it.

For example we heard of an oil spill, I hope we will know what they’re planning to do with this situation. Because we will not just believe them like this. I hope there will be a better system to communicate with us than what we have in place now."
