Who Owns the Northern Sea?

That’s a question an article in the Globe and Mail asks recently as Canada vies to hold onto the artic while the U.S., Russia, Norway and Denmark send their submarines to chart and claim whatever part of their continental plate can mapped.

WAIT! EVERYONE forgot about the Inuit, Yupik, Sami, Kalaallit and other indigenous groups of the north. Are we surprised? No. And it is each of the tribes who were told by Creator to care for the land and sea…the word own or sell do not exist. Giving the land is a post-colonial concept. It is with their determination that perhaps we can keep the polluting, whale killing ships to a minimum and war driven ships to zilch.

Man, you can try what you want, force what you want, but indigenous prophecies are what they are and those you can only turn around by action of spirit. Love to you so you can open your heart and turn around to truly help the world.

    So what you’re saying is; with Harper as president, we’re screwed. I’m afraid you’re right.

    Nice pic… land of the midnight sun, one of the only areas still virtually untouched except by those who’ve taken care of it since the beginning of time. I agree, I hope their stewardship is recognized.

    JJ….one would think there is some hope with the Inuit Circumpolar Council, a UN recognized body made up of 8 indigenous northern peoples (Canada, Russia, U.S. etc.).

    but with the UN becoming more and more unrecognized by the larger countries….well….you know what i mean.

    also, the more sovereignty quebec is granted the less of anything the inuit will have there considering quebec does not recognize the sovereignty of indigenous peoples. quebec would rather just claim their lands and suck out whatever is under the ground.

    Given our history with indigenous people, all the understanding and so forth (yes I’m being facetious), and the fact that we are only now waking up to the idea that we actually have a northern border, I wouldn’t surprised if Santa Claus has to change his postal code sometime soon.
