The Black Peoples Union stands for the recognition and enforcement of their full Sovereign rights to ownership and management of their Lands and Waters, and the right to full self-determination over all of their political, social and economic affairs so that they may forge their own future. They believe that sovereign First Nations people have the right to manage their own political, social, and economic affairs as they see fit, without interference from outside forces.
