Chief Perry Bellegarde Message to the Bahá’ís for the Bicentenary Birth
are delighted to share with you a moving message from the Assembly of
First Nations national Chief Perry Bellegarde, on the occasion of the
bicentenary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh.
to the Baha’i Community of Canada!
is my honour as National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations to send
my best wishes to the Baha’is of Canada and the entire Baha’i community
around the world on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah,
the Founder of the Baha’i Faith. This is a milestone worth celebrating!
behalf of all First Nations, I would like to thank the Baha’is of
Canada for supporting First Nations inherent and Treaty rights.
Baha’u’llah taught the importance of unity and justice among all
peoples regardless of their race or faith. This message resonates
deeply with First Nations peoples, as witnessed by the many First
Nations people that are part of the Baha’i community.
forward to working together with the Baha’is of Canada as we walk
together towards a new era of peace, justice and reconciliation.
Best wishes for a memorable and enjoyable celebration.
National Chief Perry Bellegarde
Assembly of First Nations
