    which many consider a failed attempt to advance First Nations interests and protect the boreal forest in the region Many feel the lack of action taken by the government left many east side communities and their interests underrepresented or simply excluded in the planning process Though EAST Inc was not formed in response to the WNO the WNO deals in land use studies while EAST Inc is strictly based in tourist development it does hope that by going directly to the communities people will have the chance to develop economies that suit their interests We start with the communities We go and visit these people because it s really the people we re after Sustainable eco and cultural tourism ventures include but are not limited to green cottage development park and protected area creation interpretive centres traditional medicine harvesting indigenous arts and crafts fishing photography tours and wilderness exploration The premise of sustainable economic development on the east side is one that is close to the hearts of many east side communities First Nations people depend on the resources and many want to boost economic development without sacrificing the health and ecological integrity of the lands and waters We don t get many chances we only have one chance to be part of the development before government corporations logging companies take over In our province of Manitoba I think more people need to experience the land Only in that way will people feel they have any responsibility for its protection As development interests such as mining and logging encroach on the east side landscape it becomes more important then ever for the people who will be affected to voice their interests EAST Inc aspires to be the resource that provides east side residents with the tools they need to navigate towards a healthy future by increasing the number of locally owned Aboriginal businesses and providing new tourism related employment for its residents Adamantly Raven affirms We don t get many chances we only have one chance to be part of the development before government corporations logging companies take over Then we re looking at them taking all the resources We have to be there right now There is no second chance here Raven also expresses concern that the Manitoba government lacks long term vision This is virgin territory There are no long term plans in place We don t have a 20 year plan or a 10 year plan or even a 5 year plan 4 years that s as far into the future as we go In a culture that attempts to uphold the seventh generation rule where care is taken so as not to negatively affect the quality of life for people seven generations into the future the short sightedness of the government that Raven refers to sis considered by some as selfish and incomprehensible In our province of Manitoba I think more people need to experience the land Raven contends Only in that way will people feel

    are responsible for the water It was noted that if the decision on BiPole III were to be reversed the four elements will be unbalanced and also alter the natural design of the landscape for any future life that exists there All the Pipe Carriers shared their concerns regarding the land that might be sacrificed for the BiPole III One of the Pipe Carriers and a Medicine woman Flora Ruck raised concerns about how there are so few places left on earth that are unspoiled where you can go to gather herbal medicines to know that what you gather is healthy and that they will grow there year after year Flora relies on certain herbal medicines to keep her diabetics down because western medicines don t work for her Flora stated that the Eastside of Lake Winnipeg must remain relatively unspoiled so that First Nations living in the region can continue to practice their traditional ways and pass them on to future generations This is the last virgin boreal forest in Manitoba I want to protect it for everything we need to make our life better because it s the land that will heal us the medicines the animals the rives streams and the lakes When Garry Raven was asked why the Eastside is so important for him and what he would like to see there for future generations to come he stated This is the last virgin boreal forest in Manitoba I want to protect it for everything we need to make our life better because it s the land that will heal us the medicines the animals the rives streams and the lakes There is a lot of pure water in these lakes that we will need in the future The Eastside is also a perfect place for humans to learn everything about the boreal forest and how it will help future generations to come My vision for that area is to see some kind of a University or a learning centre where we can balance traditional ecological knowledge and wisdom and western science We need to teach all people how to take care of this land and what it gives us We Elders and Pipe Carriers encourage the people of Manitoba and the Government to establish a boreal learning centre as soon as possible so we can teach people globally how to take care of this beautiful forest and about the importance of working with mother earth and not against her The Anishinaabe spiritual Pipe Carriers used their pipes at the ceremony to ask the creator to help the Anishinaabe to uphold their responsibilities and talk for mother earth and protecting her as this is the gift we were given by the creator We as Anishinaabe are not against any kind of economic development but we have to discuss the importance in taking care of the land and respect all life that needs that land to live The elders at this Pipe Gathering all agreed on having
