The guiding vision of Metallic Law comes from a time-honoured phrase in the Mi'gmaq language.  Apigsituagan - "Making Things Right" is about correcting mistakes of the past in order to honour your life's path in front of you. As we take steps as Indigenous Nations towards self-determination, we all play a role in asserting our rights and reminding Canada and our allies that we intend to restore our nationhood and jurisdiction. Making things right is restoring what should have been and what will be again.


“Netugulimg” is founded on the practice of having an abundance of food and provisions for the winter to ensure the well-being of our people. Chiefs were required to be skilled hunters, fishers and warriors to promote survival of our communities. This concept was used to govern our people and our lands.


To cherish knowledge is to know WISDOM.

To know LOVE is to know peace.

To honour all of the Creations is to have RESPECT.

BRAVERY is to face the foe with integrity.

HONESTY in facing a situation is to be brave.

HUMILITY is to know yourself as a sacred part of Creation. 

TRUTH is to know all these things.
