Alberta First Nation leaders from Treaty Six are speaking out against a recent notice released by four Conservative MPs from Alberta, which they say they will not support.

"This declaration is a clear display of ignorance and moreover a thoughtless claim of support to your inequalities," reads a letter released by the Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations on Friday.

The Buffalo Declaration, released Feb. 20, is a 13-page notice that calls for "immediate action" from the federal government and makes a series of demands, like eliminating or phasing out equalization and requiring Ottawa to acknowledge the "devastation of the National Energy Program."
