Grand Chief Ted Moses and Deputy Grand Chief Matthew Mukash will be among the speakers at the Second Peoples’

Summit of the Americas. Matthew Coon Come, national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, may also attend.

The so-called alternative summit is to be held April 17 to 21 in Quebec City. It will overlap the Summit of the Americas of April 20 to 22, at which 34 heads of state will gather. The government leaders are meeting to talk about creating the Free Trade Area of the Americas.

Some 25,000 protesters and 6,000 cops are also expected in the city, much of which has been fenced off as a no-go zone.
