Borean Community Meets to Discuss Indigenous Rights, Sovereignty

The Borean Community has met to discuss indigenous rights and sovereignty as they related to North American micronations. The members of the organisation discussed their own micronations’ involvement with indigenous peoples and how micronations across the community can work to further develop deeper appreciation for and relations with their local indigenous nations. Members were concerned with the preservation of indigenous peoples’ sovereignty and the preservation of natural resources important to the life of indigenous communities.

As the first country to hold the organisation’s presidency, Sandus led the meeting with the hope of encouraging member states to coöperate on political and practical grounds. Sandus has already begin to explore further ways to work with micronations located on the large expanse of the Anishinaabewaki, the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe people, and other Algonquian peoples.
