President Clayton Extends Support to the Family of Colten Boushie and the Red Pheasant Cree Nation

While Indigenous people have been making progress over the years, the outcome of Colten’s case brings a somber realization that our Indigenous people continue to face systemic injustices that go unaddressed. Colten’s story has raised the need for change, and a call to the government of Canada to assess the Canadian judicial system.

Know that the grief and emotions of Colten’s families are in the hearts of the Nisga’a Nation.  The Nisga’a Nation will stand beside you, and we send you our heartfelt condolences and prayers.

We will write to Prime Minister Trudeau and other Ministers to support the call for a review of the Canadian justice system.

Nisga’a President Eva Clayton shares this message:  “We, as Indigenous people must stand united to call for an overhaul of the Canadian justice system.  We want a justice system that brings ‘justice’ to all Canadians, regardless of ethnicity.  We must work together to ensure that the Indigenous peoples’ concerns are addressed at every level of the Canadian government.

We will work to get justice for Colten.  We will lobby the provincial and federal governments to take this very serious and to correct the wrongs that led us to this injustice.

Our prayers are with you at this very difficult time. 




Eva Clayton, President
