This article by National Chief, Perry Bellegarde, discusses FPIC as an aspect of Indigenous people's inherent right to self-determination. He states that Indigenous peoples have rights to make decisions about the land, laws, and resources. Planning decisions cannot be made without Indigenous people's FPIC and must be free from oppression, outside interference, and negative impacts. Bellegarde calls on the Canadian government to adopt the declaration within federal legislation and to address the human rights violations that are occurring in Canada.
