MISSION CAPSULES: Through Presbyterians Sharing ... we support Presbyterian participation in KAIROS' The Land, Our Life campaign. The campaign considers the impact the industry of extracting raw materials has on indigenous communities and why the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (recently endorsed by the Canadian government) is important to indigenous peoples in Canada, and around the world. Presbyterians attended KAIROS' fall 2010 regional meetings, organized "drumming for indigenous rights" events and will participae in the upcoming The Land, Our Life Blanket Train in June 2011. Participating in The Land, Our Life is one way Presbyterians are standing in solidarity with indigenous peoples in Canada and around the world.
