CAID was purposed to fill a need for an organization to provide capacity, not consultants, to Indigenous People. Traditional leaders and remote communities lack capacity to protect their rights and manage their inheritance in a non-Indigenous global society. As such, Immemorial rights, Creator-given roles, needs and poverty are ignored by colonizing mindsets and Indigenous self-determination is thwarted to advance colonial interests.
CAID is designed to share professional expertise, receive cultural guidance, obtain community input and help present rights, roles, needs and traditional law in a format to outside jurisdictions that is administratively ready for traditional leaders or communities to engage in consultation processes for community and regional developments.

In short, CAID provides capacity needed to engage locally, regionally and nationally creating a platform for consultation, accommodation and informed consent.
