THINGS TO DO THURDAY
Native Americans are getting their back to their roots on Friday, August 27, 2010 with a Detroit River Canoe Crossing to enforce the 1974 Jay Treaty Rights led by the American Indian Movement of Michigan. 200 canoes will journey across Detroit's, Belle Isle Island/Park to Windsor, Ontario, and back.
The goal of AIM of Michigan is to further the rights of the original people of the America's, to promote cultural understanding, to aid in human rights causes, to promote respect and understanding of humanity, the earth and all creatures.
Although often confused with the new group in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Detroit group is supported by Half Wolf Merchandise, whose artists are all of Native descent, and the proceeds of all sales inherently support the native community. The AIM of Michigan office is located on East Boston Blvd. in Detroit, Michigan.
NOTE: "The "Jay Treaty" was ratified by Congress in 1797. John Jay negotiated this treaty with Great Britain. Under Jay's Treaty, the British agreed to leave areas in the Northwest Territory which they had been required to return earlier, under the Treaty of Paris. This treaty did not, however, oblige the British to observe American neutral rights."
