1974 - Canada: Planning the First International Conference of Indigenous Peoples

Inspired by the shared struggles of Indigenous Peoples worldwide, George Manuel and the National Indian Brotherhood take it upon themselves to plan The First International Conference of Indigenous Peoples. The Conference is intended to unite Indigenous peoples worldwide in their struggle towards self-determination and land rights.

Planning efforts occur in the Alberni Residential School, a part of Canada’s federally funded, religiously operated Residential School System.
