A strong-willed political leader and a champion of his people, George Manuel worked tirelessly to improve the social, economic and political conditions of First Nations people in Canada. He is credited by many with inspiring the modern Indigenous movement in Canada.
Born on February 17, 1921, on the Neskonlith Reserve near Chase, British Columbia, Manuel attended the Kamloops Indian Residential School. He became involved in politics in the early 1950s and went on to hold many influential roles during his four-decade career.
He also founded and became the first president of the World Council of Indigenous Peoples (WCIP) and helped in the development of the WCIP’s Universal Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 1977.
Manuel was nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize and received many recognitions for his work, including appointment as an Officer of the Order of Canada. He passed away on November 15, 1989, in Kamloops, British Columbia.
