INTRODUCTION

All people of the world have been given the right to self-determination by the Creator. This principle is now commonly embraced by the global world political community that it is the founding premise for the Wolastoqiyik Nation and the Wabanaki Confederacy as a spiritual covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Today, the First Peoples and all their descendants on Turtle Island, after a struggle over many generations, effectively demand to be the makers of their destiny.

The citizens of the Wolastoqiyik Nation of the eastern door claim control and jurisdiction over those matters which are regarded as internal and territorial to the citizens not in a sense of ownership but rather in a sense of occupation.

The citizens of the Wolastoqiyik Nation also claim effective control over those resources which belong to the Nation by virtue of original jurisdiction given to them by the Creator.

Furthermore, the citizens of the Wolastoqiyik Nation also declare that their relationship as a Nation to other Nations will be based on their original jurisdiction which defines their inherent rights, a just interpretation of the treaty process and other agreements in which we, from time to time, entered or will enter with representatives of other Nations under the Wabanaki Confederacy member of the Great Confederacy of all the Nations on Turtle Island.

WOLASTOQIYIK NATION

The Wolastoqiyik Nation is composed of family clans that form 8 communities or Tribes of Wolastoqiyik citizens sharing their communal sentiments and united through shared history and cultural heritage and language within a political and spiritual system. The Wolastoqiyik Nation cannot be subjugated to other Nations, as each Nation is a unique web of people, values and historical experiences.

The history of the Wolastoqiyik Nation is unique in the sense that all the citizens of the Wolastoqiyik Nation experience sovereignty in practice. The Wolastoqiyik were never subjugated to human central government as such which determined the destiny of all the citizens. However, the citizens maintained a common bond with other Tribes or Nations through upholding the Creator's Laws through original jurisdiction according to their customs, traditions and values, through a common language and through covenants, sacred ceremonies, wampum belts and treaties with other Nations.


As a Nation with a history of covenants, wampum belts and treaties, the Wolastoqiyik have always valued peaceful and reasonable relationships. The same holds true in the history of our relationship with the newcomers, the French and British, to our lands when we invited them under our original jurisdiction to join the Great Eastern Confederacy of our Nations in 1701 and in 1752 and 1759.

THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE WOLASTOQIYIK NATION

The fundamental reality underlying this charter for self-determination is that the citizens of the Wolastoqiyik Nation joined as a Nation with other Nations in a territorial structure, as it deems necessary and will exercise full political and spiritual authority over the territory provided to them by the Creator. Our Nation is sovereign in determining its future.

The treaty process, essentially is a recognition of our original jurisdiction to sovereignty. Implicitly, there were representatives of sovereign Nations which deliberated and negotiated the treaties of 1701, 1752, 1759 and many other treaties in the eastern part of Turtle Island.

Therefore, the sovereignty principle underpins this constitution under the Creator's gift of our original jurisdiction. The Wolastoqiyik Nation is a sovereign entity which regulates its internal and territorial affairs. Our relationships with other peoples will therefore be based on a Nation to Nation principle.

ORIGINAL JURISDICTION

The Maliseet Nation is constituted upon the principle of original jurisdiction to self-determination. The original jurisdiction of the Wolastoqiyik Nation is based upon the inherent rights in its definition of itself and what spiritual and material rights and resources that come under its proprietorship.

The true fact for the Wolastoqiyik Nation is that our original jurisdiction is based upon our relation with the Creator. Our inherent rights are given to us by the Creator and are expressed and exercised through the citizens.

All sovereign Nations and governments have come into being because of the inherent right to do so. The Wolastoqiyik Nation is based upon the same principle and we proclaim and declare under our original jurisdiction that we do have the inherent right to sovereignty, to nationhood and to govern and take care of ourselves while at the same time respecting other sovereign Nations and governments. The Wolastoqiyik Nation will therefore exercise its original jurisdiction with its corresponding responsibilities and obligations.


SACRED TREATY

All our ancestors representing the Tribes of the Wolastoqiyik Nation entered into treaties with representatives of other Nations including the Nations of the newcomers on Turtle Island in 1701 and 1752. The citizens did not concede their original jurisdiction through the treaty making process. However, the treaty making process is a sacred and living testament of the existence of our original jurisdiction.

The spirit and intent of the treaty was fundamentally one of peaceful co-existence. We agreed to share the land, up to a depth of six inches with the newcomers to our land in order that they too would survive. Our ancestors understood the sacredness of the land and life in general. Land was not a commodity to be sold or given away. We were placed on our lands on Turtle Island by the Creator and we were given stewardship over Mother Earth.

The citizens of the Wolastoqiyik Nation proclaim and declare that they never relinquished any rights to the land and its resources. They will continue to use the land and its resources as they have done in the past.

Our sacred treaties are therefore implicit in this sacred hospitable gesture of the Wolastoqiyik. The Elders continue to reaffirm their commitment to these treaties with its corresponding obligations.
