Arthur Manuel passed last January, 2017. His bio – [Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Manuel%5D
Since 2003, he has served as spokesperson for the Indigenous Network on Economies and Trade (INET), a network of indigenous nations working on the international level to achieve recognition of Aboriginal title and rights. Working through INET, Manuel succeeded in having the struggle for Aboriginal title and treaty rights injected into international financial institutions. Three of INET’s amicus curiae briefs were accepted by in World Trade Organization and one by the North American Free Trade Agreement showing how Canada’s failure to recognize and compensate Aboriginal people for the lumber taken off their traditional lands was a form of subsidy to the lumber industry. These rulings have set important precedents for Aboriginal title and rights in Canada.
