SpayedNeutered le By MEAGAN WOHLBERG Iconic Canadian rocker Neil Young announced last week he will be playing an- other Honour the Treaties concert to benet the Atha- bascaChipewyanFirstNation ACFN in northern Alberta. The show set for July 3 at Rexall Place in Edmonton will also feature legendary Canadian alt-country band Blue Rodeo. Its the second time Young has used his music to benet the First Nation from Fort Chipewyan located down- stream of the oilsands. Last year he performed on a four- stop Honour the Treaties tour across Canada raising over 500000 for ACFNs legal defence fund. The First Nation is cur- rently embroiled in a num- ber of legal disputes against the federal and provincial governments for their role in approving numerous in- dustrial projects within and upstream from ACFNs tra- ditional territory. Though Young has made critical statements about the environmentaldevastationhe saw when visiting Fort Mc- Murray in late 2013 he said previously that the concerts are to raise awareness about Canadas treaty obligation to indigenous peoples. Our issue is not whether the natural resource sector is a fundamental part of the country Young said during last years tour. Our issue is withthegovernmentbreaking treaties with the First Nation andplunderingthenaturalre- sources the First Nation has rights to under the treaties. ACFN Chief Allan Adam said he is honoured to have Young join the First Nation again in supporting its legal defence fund. The ACFN are continuing our legal challenges to stop outofcontroltarsandsdevel- opment from destroying our traditionalterritoryandrights asindigenouspeoplesAdam saidinastatement.Withthe supportofNeilYoungandfans wearecreatingmoreaccount- abilityfromourgovernments for the safeguarding of our lands rights and future gen- erations in Alberta Canada and beyond.
