Ta’Kaiya Blaney is a 12 year old from the Sliammon First Nation in Canada. Listen to her short interview for United Nations Radio here:
Ta’Kaiya, who is participating in this year’s session of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues from 20 to 31 May, says our earth is our home.
She told the Forum that everyone needs to take steps towards a clean and healthy future regarding animals, humans, plants, and ecosystems.
Ta’Kaiya tells Gerry Adams about her concerns for the well-being of her community and her plans to solve some of the problems created by a treaty which she says discriminates against indigenous people.
