The chiefs of the Matawa Tribal Council said they met with Rae this week to discuss next steps in regards to the proposed negotiations.

Rae will tour all nine Matawa communities in the coming months to meet with community members.

In a news release, the Matawa Tribal Council said the provincial government has not yet responded to its proposal for a regional strategy negotiation framework.

The chiefs reiterated their call for both the Ontario and federal governments to ensure that environmental assessment processes in their traditional territories provide for full participation by First Nations in a culturally appropriate way — and in their native languages.
