August 14, 1992



Dear Members of the Lubicon Lake Nation:



We take this occasion, the 159th yearly meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Canada, to again make public our support of our Aboriginal brothers and sisters at Lubicon Lake as you continue your attempts to resolve conflicts and be granted justice in a society not of your making. In particular, we recognize your struggle to obtain just compensation for resources and a life-style, taken from you without your permission, so that you may establish an appropriate economic base for a renewed community. We are pleased to note your continued use of creative nonviolent techniques.



We ask that you consider us among those who are walking with you on your journey.



In Friendship



Elaine Bishop, Clerk
