Chiefs a no-show at tower meeting By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

After the stoppage of work on the newest Silo Wireless tower at Third Line and Mohawk Road, there was to be a community meeting at the Old No.1 School property on Saturday morning to discuss the situation and to ask questions of both Elected Chief Bill Montour and Confederacy Mohawk Chief Allen MacNaughton. A group of around two dozen area citizens representing both sides of the argument came to talk, but neither Montour nor MacNaughton showed up, leaving it up to the people to duke it out, as it were, without either form of Six Nations governance apparently willing to weight in on the placement of the controversial tower. The issue concerns ownership of a small piece of land which was at one time a part of the Martin farm which Arnold Douglas purchased in 1969 from the registered owner. Land was donated by Six Nations families to the Confederacy in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s to be used as

numbered schools. According to Allen MacNaughton, however, when the land was no longer in use for that purpose it was to revert to the family who donated it. Douglas was given a copy of Peter Martin’s last will and testament which states, “I give, devise and bequeath to my beloved son James Alfred Martin, one hundred acres less one and a half acres for a school site already dispensed of being the north half of Lot No. 30 “ ...... etc. As far as he is concerned, Douglas wants to know how that small corner of property he bought ended up in the hands of Band Council in the first place. The statements of evidence given Douglas by the Band Council are selected quotes from minutes of Confederacy School Committee meetings between 1891 and 1913, which state: “School Board Aug. 17th, 1891. The committee on school sites reported in favour of placing School No. 1 on the north half of Lot 30th Con. lll.” “August 31, 1891 - “After considering the Report of the Committee on School Section

No.1 made at the last meeting, it was resolved to erect a new schoolhouse at once on the north half of lot #30, Con: lll on the same plan in every respect as school No. XI. “In reply to the petition of the residents of S.S. No. 1, it was resolved that this board has pleasure in accepting the offer of the residents of S.S. No.1 to assist the Board in beautifying the school grounds. That Hon. Secretary was instructed to purchase half an acre of land on Lot 30 Con. III as a site for School No.1, paying therefor the sum of $10.00.” “July 3rd. 1913. Accounts Paid: Peter Martin for land extension of school lots. $35.00.” A letter delivered to homes by the Elected Council explaining their stance on the issue also quotes from a 1912 Confederacy School Committee meeting, “The committee accepted the offer of a new school plot for No. 1 on the N.E. Corner of Lot 30, Con.3, Tuscarora. The offer being made by Peter Martin of 1 acre of land and a new dug well in exchange for the present site. The Council also named the following Com-

He also questions why the Elected Council is dealing with specific lands that were donated to the Confederacy in 1913, before there even was a Elected Band Council. mittee Chiefs, Harry Martin, J.C. Martin, Joab Martin and inspector Augustus Jamieson to purchase 1/2 acre for from Peter Martin and report.” But according to Douglas, this does not represent a legal document. The statements  contained were selected extracts from these minutes, without letterhead, or signatures.

“There is a document that shows Peter Martin giving it over to the Confederacy when they controlled it through the Confederacy’s School committee,” Douglas told the gathering. “The school committee apparently never got any documentation saying they own it. So far there is nothing to prove this piece of land ever left the farm. There

are no copies of receipts, there is no report from Augustus Jamieson, and there are no registered documents anywhere to support it,” he says. “The Elected Council is counting on information given me, but there is no information at Indian Affairs that it was ever transferred from the farm.

Six Nations to get new Electronic Medical Record system By Stephanie Dearing SIX NATIONS

It’s official – Six Nations has signed a three year agreement with Nightingale Informatix Corporation. The contract represents the largest Nightingale has landed with any First Nation health care provider. The agreement will cost Six Nations $635,000 and will replace an existing, electronic medical record (EMR) system that Six Nations’ Health Director says does not meet the needs of her employees. In a written statement Six Nations Health Services Director Ruby Miller said she expects the new system will provide her staff with “flexibility, customization to the Six Nations community health needs and reporting needs, user friendly data collection, and a commitment to a strong responsive working relationship.” Reached by telephone, Doug Watts, Vice President of Development for Nightingale said the system, Nightingale On Demand, is a “cloudbased system” that allows ease of use similar to on-line banking. “All they have to do is log into to it and we manage all the technology side of things related to the EMR.” “I think that we bring a level of flexibility and willingness to work with them on other items that might be

important to them that I don’t think that they felt they were receiving from their first vendor,” said Watts. “We have a lot of capabilities that will allow First Nations to manage different community programs that are focused on groups as opposed to individual services they are providing to a patient, and so that allows them to track objectives and outcomes for that group versus just track the information related to individual patients,” said Watts. When bringing the potential relationship forward to Elected Council’s Human Services Committee in early July, Miller said Nightingale had been chosen following a tendering process. She elaborated in writing, saying of the 13 EMR providers authorized by the province, three submitted proposals to Six Nations, and after a vetting process, Nightingale was selected. While discussing Nightingale at the Human Services Committee, Miller advised the Committee Six Nations Finance Director Gary Phillips had some concerns about Nightingale’s financial situation. She said Phillips had “met a couple of times now with the Nightingale Corporation and talked about some of the financial issues that he had identified,” but she did not specify the issues of concern. Phillips, who was present

at the Committee meeting on July 4 said much the same thing. He told the Committee Nightingale “spoke to” his concerns about the company’s financial situation, but did not elaborate what those concerns were, only that he was satisfied with the direction being taken by Nightingale. But the auditor for Nightingale stated in financial statements for the company released just one week before Six Nations and Nightingale signed the agreement, “The Company has sustained losses from operations and, until recently, negative cash flows from operations, for many years.” The auditor, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, cautioned the company’s cash flow was in a bit of a delicate situation. The statements show Nightingale has a cumulative shareholder deficit of over $35 million. Nightingale posted a net loss of $1.2 million for the financial year just ended. Watts said, “If you look back at our track record ... you’ll find highlighted within our financial records that over the past nine or ten quarters, two-and-a-half-years, we’ve actually been running what’s called positive EBITAS (a measurement of your earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization).” “It says that we are essen-

tially working on a positive cash flow basis now and that, from a financial perspective, that is what the investment community and the community at large is really looking for,” said Watts. While Miller and Phillips would not say why they were concerned about Nightingale’s financials, Miller did say meetings with Nightingale had eased those concerns. “After the initial postponement,” she wrote, “on selecting a provider the Director of Finance spoke with the CEO and CFO regarding the financial viability of Nightingale. They provided a presentation previously given to the financial community that included a large contract win with AOHC [Association of Ontario Health Care Centres] valued at $9.0 million which occurred after the year ended March 31, 2012 financial results.” “Nightingale’s large contract win of AOHC and the acquisition of Medrium [medical practice management software] were influences on the decision,” said Miller. She also said Nightingale’s “financial statements do indicate continued improvement in cost control.” When asked about the deficit, Miller stated, “software companies normally take years to become profitable.” Nightingale’s Chief Ex-

ecutive Officer, Sam Chabib, said Nightingale has seen growth in profits. The deficit is “what we call retained deficits, from the onset of the company, which is fairly typical to young technology companies that have a heavy investment in research and development and growth or acquisitions, which we have, we have about five acquisitions.” “I think the measure the market looks at for technology companies is EBITAS,” said Chabib. “We just closed our 14th consecutive quarter of positive EBITAS, which is a major achievement for a company in our space, and that has instigated a couple of research analysts ... to initiate coverage to our business. “It’s been a fairly healthy growth story, a Canadian story,” said Chabib. EBITAS measures non-cash accounting entries, he said. He explained the $1.2 million loss posted for the company’s last fiscal year as a “tax loss,” and said, “If you look at our financials you’ll see that we actually generated $1.2 million of positive earnings this past year, $1.9 million before. As I mentioned, it’s been 14 consecutive quarters of positive earnings before non-tax items.” Nightingale made first place on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 list in 2008, “and we made the list every

single year since then,” said Chabib. Nightingale placed 50 on the 2011 list. Nightingale just celebrated its tenth anniversary. The company is publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, which Watts said is “not that common a practice for Canadian EMR companies.” He said Nightingale wants to “continue to grow and expand, to continue to provide expanded capabilities and services to all of our customers,” and going public allows Nightingale to raise money. “Risk is all about balance and it often is a relative thing,” said Watts. “I guess I would argue that it’s riskier to stay as a privately held company and not have access to the finances and the capital that you require in order to make the types of investments that you need to make in order to be successful.” Miller said Elected Council was provided with the same financial information she and Phillips were given, spanning 2007 to 2011. Nightingale will not only convert the existing system into the new system, it will also provide training and support for Six Nations staff. The new medical records system is expected to be in operation by the beginning of 2013. It is anticipated that 150 health care providers in Six Nations will use the system.

a number of Ontario citizens and at least one environmental group. Given Enbridge has sustained two separate accidental oil releases over the past two months, it appears concerns about the potential for a spill appear have more than just a little validity. The Polaris Institute, an organization that works to enable citizen movements, compiled Enbridge's spill reports from 1999 to 2008. The company had 610 spills during those nine years, releasing 21 million litres of oil and petroleum into the environment. This past June, an Enbridge pipeline failure resulted in a small oil spill in Alberta. A larger spill took place on July 29 when Line 19 failed in Wisconsin. Enbridge is still cleaning up one of its biggest spills, which saw thousands of barrels of oil released into Michigan's Kalamazoo River in 2010.

While HDI had raised valid concerns, whether

the organization could have swayed the National Ener-

gy Board decision on Line 9, we'll never know. Accord-

Enbridge gets green light to reverse pipeline flow of Line 9 Enbridge has secured approval from the National Energy Board to reverse the flow of a 35 year old pipeline that presently carries petroleum from Montreal to Sarnia. Line 9 crosses the Grand River between Cambridge and Paris. The Haudenosaunee Development Institute (HDI) was the only Six Nations organization to object to the plan last year, submitting a letter outlining concerns about the pipeline's potential impact on the land, water, as well as the rights and interests of the Haudenosaunee and the lack of consultation with HDI. HDI's concerns about health and safety issues in the event of an accidental spill were shared by many others, including the Aamjiwnaang First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and Chippewas of the Thames,

Historic recital of Great Law nears By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN

It’s only fitting that the teachings of the Great Law of Peace, which will get underway in Six Nations on August 10, begin by opening around a White Pine tree planted 22 years ago in front of the Gaylord Powless Arena, said one of the women who helped plant the tree. The tree was planted on Earth Day in 1990, said Jan Kahehti:io Longboat. The planting was “planned and led by the Iroquois Women’s Circle, now known as the Onkwehon:we Women’s Council.” Elders also participated in the ceremonial planting. Since then, “the small tree has now grown strong with its four white roots of peace extending in the four directions,” said Longboat in a prepared statement. She said she had “made a strong suggestion” to the organizers that the opening take place around the tree. Longboat said she feels “the spirit of the Great Tree of Peace has been waiting for this special time,” referring to the coming recital of

was placed under the tree. “Many community members placed sacred items in

the buckskin wrap to remind the coming faces of our inherent right to remain on

Turtle Island forever,” said Longboat. The last recital of the Great Law of Peace was 25 years ago, when Jake Thomas organized a recital that took place in Six Nations. This year, the recital is being organized by volunteers who meet “pretty much every night” in the old Council House, said Jagwadeth (also known as Chris Sandy), who acts as a spokesperson for the organizers. He has been travelling most weekends with three other men to other First Nation communities to deliver invitations to the recital. His 15 year old grandson makes the invitation wampum, said Jagwadeth. “We stop and visit them, invite them. Everybody’s happy about it,” said Jagwadeth. He said organizers anticipate as many as 1,500 people will attend the recital. The recital will be different this year, in that there will be a near-immediate translation into English. Six Nations Elected Council has committed up to $75,000 to support the initiative.

Chiefs a no-show at tower meeting

Continued from page 2 the farm and this is a part of the farm I bought. We need to know why the Band Council was involved with this at all. This land was donated to the Confederacy Council in 1913 and there was no Band Council until after 1924.” Although Councillor Ava Hill was present, it appeared that she was there as a Martin family member and not in any official capacity. But she wondered aloud why this has become a problem all of a sudden. “We had two community meetings, we provided the information and there was no opposition at those meetings,” said Hill. “We’ve been working on this for the last couple of years.” But when people at the site were asked if anyone knew about those meetings, the general answer was “no”. The question was not whether the land was do-

nated to the Confederacy by the Martin Family, but rather how did the land end up in the hands of Band Council. “My issue is that the ownership has to be settled first, before anything continues,” said Douglas. “I listen to the Confederacy on this issue because Band Council was not in existence when this happened. So far the Confederacy has said that once the school was closed the land would go back to the family. I own this farm now.” Without the Chiefs on hand to represent the Elected Council and the Confederacy, the “meeting” quickly degenerated into a Martin - Douglas family feud over who is the rightful “owner” or possessor of the land in question and how they got possession. “If you have valid documents to prove what you are saying, show me and I will be glad to go along with that,”

For folks not able – or willing to travel to Toronto, there are plenty of mouth-watering offerings available throughout the festival in Brantford, such as a performance by OKI, a feature play by Six Nations playwright Falen Johnson, a showcase of New Credit talent, and a concert featuring Susan Aglukark and Ali

Part of the funding provided by Canadian Heritage and Official Languages will help the Woodland Cultural Centre put on the 1812 Whirlwind Conference, which will take place at Six Nations Polytechnic from November 15 to 17, 2012. The conference will commemorate the role of Six Nations during the war of 1812. The Woodland Cultural Centre was established in 1972 with a goal “to protect, promote, interpret, and present the history, language, intellect, and cultural heritage of the Anishinaabe and Onkwehonwe people,” said Woodland Executive Director, Janis Monture, in a prepared statement released by Canadian Heritage Monday.

Douglas said to the vocal members of the Martin family. With that he declared, “Bill didn’t show up, Allen didn’t show up, so we’re getting nowhere here. Let’s go home.” The gathering soon left. There has been no further construction at the site as of Tuesday morning.

Although neither Confederacy Chief Allen MacNaughton nor Elected Chief Bill Montour showed up to a meeting they set up to discuss the controversial Silo tower placement on the Old School No.1 land, about 2 dozen area residents did. The gathering quickly devolved into a long standing family feud and the issue was not resolved. (Photo by Jim Windle)

WEDNESDAY, August 1, 2012



No show Chiefs say it all Conflicting and missing historical documents create problems in finding resolutions not only off reserve, as with the so-called negotiations over Kanonhstaton, but on reserve as well, as was exposed Saturday morning at the Old No. One School at Third Line and Mohawk Road. Another element of day to day life at Six Nations these days was also exposed in the lack of leadership shown by those who proclaim to be in charge. If you’ve read the Teka recently you will have the specific details surrounding a controversy relative to a small piece of land the Elected Council approved for the location of a communications tower. A “meeting” was arranged by the Elected Chief, Bill Montour and Confederacy Mohawk Chief Allen MacNaughton in Montour’s office last week to discuss the issue. Tower detractor Arnold Douglas emerged first from that meeting declaring to the assembled media waiting in the Band Council lobby — and therefor to the public — that there would be an open community meeting at the old school site Saturday morning at 10 am. Both Chiefs indicated to Douglas they would attend. But come Saturday, only about 20-24 area residents showed up to seek some answers from the Chiefs. The problem is, for reasons we do not know, neither of the Chiefs bothered to show up, causing those who did to wonder who is in charge here. Judging by the no-shows, no one is. A carefully drafted letter to the community was distributed to homes explaining Band Council’s stance on the issue, using partial minutes from long past Confederacy meetings to prove their point, that Band Council can do whatever it feels necessary on behalf of the people who elected them. Of course that would be less that 10% of the population. On the other hand, Chief MacNaughton had some pretty strong words to say about Band Council bullying people around when he was at the site last week. But, when given the chance to weigh in on the issue of land title on a specific parcel of land, MacNaughton was nowhere to be seen. Maybe the two decided to go golfing together instead, although we strongly doubt that to be the case. This issue of who has authority over what could have, and perhaps should have, been dealt with face to face in the presence of the community, but it wasn’t, leaving it up to those in attendance to regress into name calling and a firing up of a long simmering family feud over who did what to whom, when. Even touching on the potential health concerns of being in proximity to such towers  was not dealt with or even discussed. Our calls to both Chiefs for an explanation of why they were no-shows went unanswered, so that leaves it up to the rest of us to guess. Maybe Montour figured his unchallenged summary and cherry picked partial quotes relative to the events surrounding the land in question, and who has charge over it, was enough to convince everyone, and therefor found it a waste of time to attend; and by doing so, using Canada’s “agree to disagree” escape door. Maybe MacNaughton decided the issue was something important enough to discuss in full council this Saturday at the Onondaga Longhouse before he addressed it on their behalf. Or maybe he just slept in. Who knows?  But at any rate, simply not showing up to a meeting you helped arrange is bad form, to say the least, and shows bad leadership, to say it bluntly.

Councillor’s recollection of interview is mistaken This is in response to the story “Band Council will not give KT Gas business recognition” dated July 25, 2012 First of all I did not say council made the decision not to give KT Gas a business recognition letter. What I said was council never made a decision when it came to the council table; instead, the request was deferred and is still deferred. To back up several years there is a history to this issue. Back in 1993 the council of the day was bequeathed a parcel of land from a woman named Bertha Davis. When council decided to sell this “prime” piece of land they broke the parcel into three properties. The land was then put to tender. I don’t know how many people bid on the properties but the story goes that council instead of accepting the highest three bidders decided to put all the names into a hat and the three names pulled out, no matter what their bid, would be the successful landowners. Ken Mt Pleasant who owns KT Gas was one of the names chosen. Not surprising there was much controversy over the selection process. Some people even accused council of cheating. Today the cigarette retail business boom thrusts this agreement in the forefront. Prior to the sale of the land any person submitting a tender bid had to sign what is called “Criteria for Sale of Band Land” which stipulates 10 specific conditions the persons agreed to. Condition No 4 states “The applicant agrees that the property will be used for private residential purposes only; the land will not be used for a business or information centre”. Mr. Mt Pleasant along with Joanne Sault who also owns one of the properties both signed the agreement accepting the conditions; yet 19 years later they both have commercial businesses on their property. Now I don’t begrudge Ms. Sault and Mr. Mt Pleasant from starting a business and being successful. I know they have both created employment. But at the same time as a councillor I cannot not sit back and ignore the agreement they signed or pretend that it doesn’t exist. According to the story Mr. Mt Pleasant says”…there was no reason for the stipulation when I signed that letter initially.” But whether there was reason or not he did sign the agreement and in doing so gave his word. A while back when council noticed that Ms. Sault and Mr. Mt Pleasant were starting businesses on their properties council sent them a letter reminding them of the agreement. We got a brief response from Ms. Sault but Mr. Mt Pleasant chose to ignore council and council’s concern. Continued on page 7

WEDNESDAY, August 1, 2012

Continued from page 6 Shortly after that council heard Mr. Mt Pleasant went to INAC and transferred his property to his sister believing I guess this would rid the property of the agreement. He claims in the story that someone in the Lands Membership office told him the agreement wouldn’t go with the land. But I beg to differ. In speaking only for myself and not for council as a whole it’s my opinion the agreement goes with the property, goes with the land not the property owner, not the landowner. The agreement is like a Right of Way. The Right of Way goes with the land and stays with the land no matter how many times the land is sold. The other issue I have concerns public safety regarding traffic. Both the Oasis and KT Tobacco are located under a hill and already there is congestion on weekends from people coming to buy cigarettes. I don’t know how many times I witnessed an almost-accident or tires screeching from a driver having to stop abruptly. WE all know people coming to buy cigarettes ignore the rules of the road. What concerns me is that I’m hearing in addition to the gas station Mr. Mt Pleasant plans to open a donut shop. So that will be three retail businesses located on this small piece of property. With limited spacing for parking or for cars to line up at the gas pumps this means the traffic is only going to get worse, much worse and peoples’ lives will be endangered. This whole issue supports the need for council to continue working on a Six Nations Business Licence so that we know what kind of business is being set up here at Six Nations and who is setting them up. People wanting to set up a business should be required to present business plans or proposals to council, to Public Works and to Natural Gas so that the plans


can be assessed in relation to such issues as traffic and public safety and the environmental impact. Council and the community should know what businesses in our territory are partnered with non-natives. We should know who the non-native partners are and what their background is because these non-native business owners are financially benefitting from our tax free right. If we’re going to continue allowing non-natives to benefit from our rights then we should be making these people pay taxes for that privilege. But our own people cover up for them, keep them anonymous. Right now these non-native business partners come here and set up a partnership with someone, make money, sometimes tons of money, and go home scot free. They don’t have to pay taxes and they don’t have to give back to our community. What we should be doing is making accommodation agreements with these non-native business owners/partners just as we do with businesses off the territory. Councillor Helen Miller Editor’s note: Sorry Helen, but you are mistaken. You did in fact say that council would not approve a business licence for K.T. Gas Bar, not just once, but twice during the recorded interview our reporter did with you in preparation for the story which you refer to. There was also no mention of, “when it came to the council table; instead, the request was deferred and is still deferred.” The tape is here if you would like to hear it.

Enbridge approval and another major spill Hamilton CatchNews

The National Energy Board (NEB) has approved the application of Enbridge Inc to reverse the flows in their Hamilton to Sarnia pipeline – the impacts of which council has asked city staff to investigate. Yesterday’s decision coincided with another major spill in the Enbridge pipe that feeds diluted bitumen (dilbit) to Sarnia from the western Canadian tar sands. The flow reversal had been opposed by First Nations, environmental organizations and landowners who host

the 38-year-old pipe that has been transporting crude oil in a westerly direction. They were particularly concerned about the possible shipment of the more corrosive and dangerous dilbit through the pipe – potentially to international markets. Enbridge refused to confirm this possibility during the hearings held in London in May, and the NEB decision appears to require additional permits before this material could be shipped. The decision letter notes Enbridge’s assertion that the planned use is “to transport

light crude oil” to Canadian refineries, and confirms that is the NEB’s understanding that the reversal is not part of an earlier Trailbreaker proposal to export abroad. “In its final argument, Enbridge stated that the objective of the Trailbreaker project was to transport heavy crude to the United States (U.S.) east coast for transportation to the U.S. Gulf Coast whereas the objective of the current Project is to transport light crude oil to Westover Terminal for delivery to connected Canadian refineries, which is much dif-

ferent,” notes the NEB decision letter. The company’s pipeline extends to Montreal where there are connections to the US eastern seaboard, but the reversal application only covers the portion between Sarnia and the village of Westover in Flamborough. One of the conditions being imposed by the NEB in its decision specifically focuses on this Hamilton portion of the Enbridge pipeline. “Enbridge must submit to the Board, prior to applying for LTO the pipeline in the reversed direction, a plan to

manage cracking features in the pipeline section between North Westover Pump Station and Westover Terminal,” states condition 14. “This plan must include the timeline associated with the assessment methodology, and the rationale for selecting the timeline.” Enbridge is at the centre of a growing storm of protest over its pipeline maintenance and its proposal to construct a new 1100 km pipe across northern British Columbia (the so-called Northern Gateway pipeline) to move unrefined bitumen from the tar

sands to foreign markets via supertankers operating out of Kitimat. The maintenance issue erupted anew yesterday with reports of another major spill in the company’s Line 14 that almost exactly two years ago leaked over three million litres of dilbit into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River. Yesterday’s break in Wisconsin is being initially estimated at 190,000 litres. It has sparked an investigation by the US pipeline safety agency just weeks after that country’s National TransContinued on page 9

Indigenous Healing comes from around the world By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

There is a spring of healing bubbling up from the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory which is taking on various forms and training up many local practitioners in the ancient arts of indigenous healing. Last week the Tekawennake met with a group of practitioners specializing in a wide variety of metaphysical healing practices, the fastest growing being Theta Healing. Recently the 100th Theta practitioner at Six Nations was trained, but other alternative healing methodologies are thriving as well. Together, this group is gathering indigenous healing methods from throughout the world. Theta healing begins with a belief in a Creator of all that is and that Creator is able to heal what is created. The focus is on the four important points of the human: the mind, heart, physical and the spiritual, as many others do. “When one is out of balance the body begins to show signs of it,” says Theta healer Aaron Shynkark, who is visiting the Six Nations, the home of his mother, Tia, from Saskatchewan, where he has a booming practice at his father's Ahtahkakoop Cree community. Through his mother Aaron is of the Cayuga Nation, Turtle Clan, and is enjoying his return to Six Nations for an upcoming meeting of healers and to visit some people. “You go into a meditative state, into the Theta brainwave,” he explains. “It’s all about getting into that Theta brainwave. As practitioners we do not do the healing, but rather we witness it. The reason why we have the instant healings and miraculous healing we have been seeing is because it is the source that does the healing — the Creator, God or whatever name you give that source.” Two weeks ago this practice hit its 100th trained practitioner from this community. “We had a prayer circle with the practitioners at Veterans’ Park and it was quite powerful with people getting visions of how things are getting better. That people are getting healthier and stronger here,” he says. According to Kim Sibbick, the art of reflexology was first noticed in the 1800‘s by archaeologists studying ancient Egypt and expressed in many hieroglyphs. “Dr William Fitzgerald studied the ancient method of manipulating various places on the feet, as shown in some hieroglyphs, and brought the

concept back to North America,” She says that when Fitzgerald came to North America he discovered that the “Red Indians” as he called them, were already practising this method. “Your entire body is mapped out on the bottom of your feet,” says Sibbick. “All your organs and glands. The idea is that everything going on in your body has a reflex on the bottom of your feet. You manipulate the feet and it stimulates the organs to do what they are supposed to be doing. It helps remove toxins from the body, and is a general overall tune up.” Misty Porter explains that this kind of healing practice, known to many as “New Age”  has been a big part of Haudenosaunee culture for a very long time. “Hundreds of years ago when our men went off to war or went to hunt, the women stayed home,” she says. “Before the men could come back into the community, they would stop at the edge of the woods and they’d send a runner to get the women. The women would go out and meet them and perform these ceremonies. One of them was very similar to a body massage. What they did was kind

of warm them up because in order to kill, whether it's an animal for food or a person in war, they would have to put themselves in a cold place spiritually. The women did not want the men coming back into the community in that condition. Women are life givers and not supposed to kill. Men go out and they do take lives for war, hunting or even cutting a tree down. Our people understood negative and positive energy.” Cathy Jonathan is a registered massage therapist as well as a certified reflexologist. She also has training in crystal healing, therapeutic touch, quantum healing, and Theta healing.  “It’s all about energies from another source and being the channels for that energy to flow,” says Jonathan. Cathy Smith has training in Advanced Theta Healing and other methodologies as well as Reiki, level one and two, and Master Energy Healing.  “I only work with my family,” she says. “I’m not out to heal the world but I help people when they ask me to.” She is very excited about the number of healers this community has. “We are so lucky in this community to have so many very powerful healers within the community,” she says.

Indigenous Healing practitioners are banding together to help bring healing to Six Nations in a number of forms. From left are Cathy Smith, Cathy Jonathan, Misty Porter, Kim Sibbick, Gail Whitlow, and Aaron Shynkark. (Photo by Jim Windle) “Although we do have a lot of healers here, there are not many who take advantage of it here. A lot of people may think they don’t need healing, but all the things that have happened to our ancestors, that generational stuff, has all been passed down to us whether we know it or like it or not. Every one of us can benefit from healing. I encourage people to access what is already here.”

Gail Whitlow, of Ancestral Voices, located at the Iroquois Plaza, in cooperation with the other healers mentioned, will be hosting healer and author Alex J. Hermosillo at her place of business, September 14th from 7 to 8:30 pm. and again Sept. 15th from 10 am. to 3:30 pm. The “Idea of this gathering is to bring like minded practitioners together,” she says. “People are spending

hundreds of thousands of dollars on prescriptions, but how much on healing instead of just covering over symptoms.” There will also be a Healing Fair at O.M. Smith School on August 19th. with another planned for Nov. 14th. The idea is to be exposed to the various methodologies with one price which covers all of them rather than pay for each session separately.

Enbridge approval and another major spill Continued from page 7 portation Safety Board â&#x20AC;&#x153;delivered a scathing report of Enbridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of the July 2010 rupture â&#x20AC;Ś which led to more than 20,000 barrels of crude leaking into the Kalamazoo River,â&#x20AC;? notes todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report in the Globe and Mail.

In that spill, which has cost the company over $750 million in a still ongoing cleanup, Enbridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff were characterized by the NTSB as performing like â&#x20AC;&#x153;keystone kopsâ&#x20AC;? when they failed to act for over 17 hours. Earlier this summer another major spill

took place from an Enbridge pipeline in Alberta. The city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for a staff report on the Enbridge pipeline through Hamilton came earlier this month. It was opposed only by the two Flamborough area councillors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Robert Pasuta and Judi Partridge.

Biologists hired by Six Nations of the Grand spent time between July 25 and 27 removing mussels from the shoreline of the river where the water intake for the new water treatment plant will go. Potentially there are two different species-atrisk to be found in the area, one is a mussel, the other a fish, the Eastern Sand Darter. The biologists will return in August, and will spend a week removing mussels and fish from the area before work on the intake will get underway. (Photo by Stephanie Dearing).

Pow Wow wows

By Stephanie Dearing SIX NATIONS

The pageantry and splendour of the Six Nations Champion of Champions draws people from far and wide. The 33rd annual pow wow, hosted at Chiefswood Park this past weekend, was not any different, drawing thousands of people for the grand event. Indeed, incoming visitors from Brantford found traffic on Highway 54 through Six Nations was stop and go, the snarl caused by the light at Chiefswood and the heavy traffic. The problem existed for most of Saturday afternoon, and drivers reported the on-reserve portion of their drive taking as long as 20 minutes. Dancers of every age and skill level entered into the competition. Six Nations tot, Justin Restoule, joined his big brother, five year old Kaleb to dance in the pow wow this year. It was Justin's first time, and dad said both boys love to dance. They will likely be a force to reckon with in the near future on the dance ground. One of the people who recently entered her name into the competition for the position of National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Pam Palmater, was seen at the pow wow with one of her sons, and a friend of the family. With her distinctive white forelock, Pam was instantly identifiable to many – and she said everywhere she went, people were taking time to greet her, some even asking for her autograph. Kelly Williams was one of those people, and as soon as she recognized Palmater, she steered her small family group over, introducing her mother, Nora Carrier. A Six Nations elder, Knowledge Guardian at Six Nations Polytechnic, Nora has been actively involved in the preservation of the Cayuga language. Accompanying the woman was relative Rambo Hachee. “I was invited to so many pow wows,” Pam said. She said she would try to visit as many as she could. She said she had met New Credit Chief, Bryan LaForme at the pow wow, and had also met AIAI Grand Chief, Gord Peters in Chiefswood Park. The weather for the 33rd annual pow wow was beautiful, if hot for the dancers. While some appeared to conserve their energy for the competition, others gave every dance their all. Dancers came from as far away as Wisconsin and Oklahoma, The 2012 Champion of Champions title was taken by Bodie Nordwall from Stillwater, Oklahoma, who got 700 points in the Boy's Grass Dance competition. Black Bear took home first place for their drumming skills.

Arrows sink Lakers in four straight By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

The Six Nations Arrows looked sharp in eliminating the Peterborough Lakers in four straight games, however, it was not as easy as it may appear. The always competitive Lakers had put all on the line Sunday evening in their do-ordie game 4 in Peterborough and very nearly stayed alive to play another day. But in the end, the Arrows came out as the 9-8 winners to sweep the series and head into the OLA all-Ontario finals against the Orangeville Northmen to determine who will represent the OLA for this year’s Minto Cup. Game #1 is set for Thursday, Aug. 2, at the ILA at 8 p.m. Game #2 goes to Orangeville Aug. 4, at 7 p.m. Game #3 is back at the ILA Monday Aug. 6, at 8 p.m. Game #4 is in Orangeville Aug. 8th , at 8 p.m. The Arrows withstood a third period desperation charge mounted by the Lakers to hang on for the win. The Arrows led 3-2 after 20 minutes with Randy Statts, Seth Oakes and Josh Johnson accounting for the Six Nations goals. The Lakers evened the game at 58 seconds, but the Arrows exploded with the next four goals. Wenster Green scored two and Oakes and Staats each scored their second of the game to make it 7-3 by the 16:53 mark. The Lakers chipped one away at 17:19 but the four goal advantage was restored by Shane Simpson at 19:55, just as the second period ended. Mike Miller opened the third period with what would prove to be the winning goal at 2:56. The Lakers opened all the stops and poured on the offence to score four in a row including an extra attacker goal at 19:15 to draw within one of the Arrows. But that would be all they could muster as the Arrows held on to kill the clock. The Lakers outshot the Arrows 54-46 in a losing effort with Warren Hill recording the win in the Arrows goal. Game 3 Arrows 11   Lakers 8   The Arrows went into game 3 confident and ready to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the best of seven semi-finals over the Lakers Friday night at the ILA. It  took a strong third period to do the job after the Lakers and the Arrows Express went

goal for goal, and stride for stride in the first 40 minutes. Peterborough built up a 3-0 lead by the 4:48 mark, but the Arrows came to life with three of their own to even the score 3-3. Mike Miller tallied from Shane Simpson at 6:58, Josh Johnson delivered on a powerplay at 10:56 assisted by Oakes, and Brandan Bomberry tied the game on another powerplay at 12:28. After Rodd Squire put the Arrows ahead at 6:07 of the second period, the Lakers cashed in with three, two on the powerplay, both by Matt Crough, and an unassisted goal by Turner Evans. As the Arrows have shown all season they are capable of suddenly exploding with a string of goals, which they did to close out the second period beginning with Shayne Adams’ tally at 14:07 followed closely by Seth Oakes at 14:51 and Vaughn Harris at 15:13. The Arrows held a narrow 7-6 lead going into the third period and a quick Peterborough goal at 54 seconds made it a new game. Randy Staats restored the Arrows’ lead at 3:06 but Matt Crough got that one back with his third goal of the game at 10:17 to tie the game at 8-8 with a long low sidearm shot that beat Warren Hill in the Arrows net. Staats gave the Arrows the lead for the last time at 15:42. The Lakers pulled their goalie hoping for the tying goal but the gamble backfired as Vaughn Harris and Rodd Squire both added empty netters within the last minute of play. Shayne Adams had a big game with one goal and three assists.    Game 1 Arrows 11    Lakers 8  The Arrows Express opened the OLA Jr. A semi-final series Tuesday, July, 24th, at the ILA with an 11-8 victory over the Peterborough Lakers by riding a 4-0 first period lead through the rest of the game. Randy Staats drove the Arrows offense with four goals and an assist. Game 2 Arrows 10 Lakers 8 Six Nations took a 2-0 lead in the best of five series in Peterborough win a 10-8 win to firmly take the driver’s seat heading into Friday’s do-ordie game for the Lakers at the ILA.

Despite scoring for the Arrows with a periods especially, but Warren being outshot 65-40, the Arshorthanded goal at 1:49 after Peterborough was assessed a bench minor for too many men on the floor.

Rebels advance — all Native Jr. B finals coming up By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS


There will be an all Native Jr. B final series between the Six Nations Rebels and the Akwesasne Indians after the Rebels eliminated the Wallaceburg Red Devils and Akwesasne disposed of the Green Gaels in the semi-final round. The final series with Akwesasne begins Saturday, Aug. 4, at the ILA at 8 p.m. Game #2 is also at the ILA Sunday, afternoon, Aug. 5th, at 2 p.m. Game #3 and Game #4 are both at Akaweasne, Friday, Aug. 10 and Saturday Aug. 11th, if necessary. If there is a Game#5 it will be back at the ILA, Sunday August 12, at 2 p.m. Because Six Nations will be hosting the Founders Cup this year, no matter what happens in this series, the Rebels will be in the Cup tournament as hosts, However, the players and management are still hoping to proudly enter the tournament through the front door as OLA Champs rather than default hosts. Had the Wallaceburg Red Devils made it to the finals, it would have been because of last year’s Six Nations Rebels’ Founders Cup star goaltender Brennor Jacobs. Jacobs joined the Devils’ organization partway through the 2012 season and turned the franchise’s fortunes around, but even his great play throughout the five game series wasn’t enough to vault the Devils past the defending champions. Jacobs was nothing less than sensational in keeping the Devils in the series as he faced a total of 300 shots, allowing a stingy 47 goals throughout the five games series. Meanwhile Fleischer and Martin combined to face 198 Wallaceburg shots, allowing 50 goals. “This is my last year of Ju-

nior and I was just having a lot of fun,” said Brennor Jacobs of his stellar showing throughout the playoffs series against the Rebels. “I had a ton of fun this series. It’s not everything I wanted but it was exciting. The crowds in both arenas were fantastic and this was what a lacrosse game should be.” It was no more evident that goaltending would be the difference in the outcome than in the final game. The Rebels more than doubled the shots on goal, 60-29, in a game that ended 5-4 in Six Nations’ favour. Aside from Jacobs, the Devils gave it everything they had and forced the Rebels to play their best games of the year so far to win. “Wallaceburg is a good team and gave us a good run for our money,” said Tony Doxtator following the close, one goal win. “We knew we could do it here at home. We really wanted to avenge ourselves from the first two losses.” Doxtator said that his team knew going into Saturday’s crucial game that it was going to be a low scoring, close checking game. “They kind of caught us off guard at first,” said head coach Stew Monture. “They played a solid zone defence that’s as old as lacrosse itself. If they play it well, it’s tough to beat ‘em. Add Brennor to the mix and they’re tough to defend against. They had a lot of weapons.” Monture figures Jacobs was instrumental in preventing the Rebels from at least four or five goals a game. It was a goalkeepers’ duel throughout the five games of the semi-finals as Jacobs and the 2012 Six Nations Rebels’ tandem of Donovan Fleischer and Chace Martin, went head to head.

Although Jacobs was much busier Sunday night, Fleischer was called upon to make some dazzling saves along the way himself. The Rebels got a few breaks in the second half of the first period and developed a 3-0 lead on goals by Dallas John at 10:13 from Brine Rice and Ian Martin, Rice from Harris Lemon and Jacob Crans at 11:27 and Joe Haodias Maracle at 11:51. Wallaceburg scored twice in the second period with Rebels‘ Zed Williams adding a fourth Six Nations goal. The Devils emptied everything they had at Fleischer in the third period and were rewarded with goals by Branden Lilley and Jordan VanDamme to tie the game at 4-4 at the halfway mark in the period. Jacob Bomberry brought the huge crowd to its feet at 10:23 with a harmless looking shot at the feet of Jacobs that bounced between his pads. The already tight checking game tightened up even more as both teams fought for real estate in the others’ zone, But Wallaceburg seemed to feel the effects of nerves more than the Rebels as they became erratic with their passing and over anxious catching, creating a number of turnovers. Fleischer and Jacobs held their respective ground the rest of the way. When the final buzzer sounded, there was a recognizable look of relief on the faces of many Rebels players who knew they had been in a battle. Monture sees the hard fought, come-from-behind series win as a character builder for the young Rebels team that can be drawn upon the rest of the way to their target ... the successful defence of Founders Cup.

The Rebels celebrate their closely contested game 5 win over the Wallaceburg Red Devils. Part of the excitement was no doubt relief as the Devils gave the Rebels all they could handle. (Photo by Jim Windle) Game 4 Saturday night, in Wallaceburg, it was the Rebels who faced elimination, down two games to one in the five game series. The Rebels solved Jacobs early and often establishing a 7-1 lead after 20 minutes of play. But the Devils chipped away at the big mountain in front of them in the second period, outscoring the Rebs 6-4 in the period and reducing their deficit to 11-7. The Devils continued to plug away at the Rebels lead in the third period while Jacobs was getting his feet back under him after a playing a “human” first period.  After Jordan VanDamme and Tony Doxtator exchanged early third period goals, the Devils went on a four goal run to tie the game at 12-12. It took Zed Williams and Ian Martin with goals 32 seconds apart to give the Rebels the two goal lead they rode to the final buzzer.

Game 3 Last Thursday night Jacobs looked like he was having the time of his life as he led his new team past his last year’s teammates, stopping 56 of 63 shots en route to the Wallaceburg Red Devils’ 8-7 win. Jacobs put on a show in front of just shy of 1,000 in attendance at the ILA, many of whom had arrived from Wallaceburg to cheer their team to victory. The Devils ran up a 4-0 lead before Brine Rice brought the Rebels into the game with 37 seconds remaining in the first period, assisted by Daniel Henhawk. Henhawk kept the ball rolling at 1:01 of the second period, unassisted, and Kevin Davey made it 4-3 from Jacob Bomberry at 2:34.  Devils’ David Veitch scored at 15:33 and Rebels’ Dallas John answered at 18:47 on a powerplay from Tony Doxtator and Jacob Bomberry.

Six Nations’ pride kicked in during the second half of the third period when Daniel Henhawk scored at 11:57 and Tony Doxtator followed at 14:55. With one goal to complete the comeback and with the Rebels pressing, it looked like they were about to pull the game out of the fire, until Rice was penalized for an illegal cross-check at 18:31. Clint Lamarsh made good on the ensuing Wallaceburg powerplay to create an 8-6 lead. Doxtator scored a powerplay goal with Devil’s Jordan Durston in the penalty box for interference, but it was too little and too late to send the game into an extra frame. The Devils were fortunate to hold on for the win, but in doing so, they put the Rebels in a position where they would have to win the next two games to avoid elimination.

Six Nations boxer KO’s opponent in 45 seconds By Jim Windle TORONTO Six Nations pro boxer, Karl Hess scored a stunning first round knock-out Friday, July 20th at the George Bell Arena aka the Stockyards in Toronto. Hess, a 140 pounder, who fights out of the Black Eye Boxing Club in Brantford, KO’ed his equally experienced but older opponent, Matt Burden, in 45 seconds of

the first round with a vicious uppercut to the jaw. Burden was fighting out of the Bluewater Boxing Club of Sarnia. “Karl was a bit over anxious in his first fight,” says trainer Jack Blasdell of his first professional fight. “He won it, but this time he seemed much more relaxed, calm and thinking.” Blasdell says this time his fighter was not going out looking for the big knock-out, but when the opening presented

itself, Hess was quick to take advantage of the situation. “He set up the knock-out with a good hard right to the body that hurt Burden and dropped his arms,” says Blasdell. “Then he got him with an uppercut to the jaw that put him on his butt.” Hess’ forward momentum caused him to nearly trip over his fallen opponent, but he remained on his feet to watch his adversary counted out as Hess recorded his first profession-

Haldimand OPP Briefs Staff HALDIMAND COUNTY Police nab one man after foot chase in Hagersville Haldimand County OPP

officers, responding to a report of two males stealing from vehicles in Hagersville on July 30, ended up chasing the suspects on foot. While one suspect was successfully apprehended, the other got away. The OPP branch said in a statement officers had attended the King Street East area

From interview with Fire Chief Seth Staff The fire that broke out late Monday afternoon on Sixth Line Road has destroyed a thriving business for Six Nations cigarette manufacturer Terrance Jamieson. Six Nations Fire Chief Michael Seth said the damage to the manufacturing facility was “in excess” of one million dollars. “A million is the low end of the estimate,” he said. Firefighters were on the scene from 4:45 pm to around 2 in the morning, Seth said when reached by telephone.  “The fire was pretty much out around midnight-ish, and then we started releasing some vehicles around that time” he said.  “From there, there were some more hot spots.  I think our last truck went back to the station by 2 o'clock in the morning.” Firefighters from four neighbouring municipalities brought in 29 trucks, helping Six Nations firefighters.  “We had three stations out of Brant, four stations out of Haldimand, one station out of Norfolk and two stations out of Hamilton,” said Seth.  Seth described the fire as being “a big fire, but it wasn't overly eventful,” said Seth.  “It was time-consuming and tedious.” One Six Nations firefighter suffered a minor injury, “a strain to the knee as the result of a fall,” said Seth.  The unidentified firefighter was “transported to the hospital and released.” A barn situated behind the facility also caught fire and was destroyed, but Seth said there was no danger of the fire spreading. Seth and a representative from the Ontario Fire Marshal's Office, who came to Six Nations from Barrie, spent Tuesday at the site, investigating a possible cause.  But Seth said both departments have closed their files on the fire, saying the extensive damaged caused by the fire made it “almost impossible to identify the cause,” said Seth. Seth said the owner had no insurance. The Six Nations Fire Department just issued a ban on open fires in the territory due to the abnormally dry weather.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE #5 Highway 7&8 Transportation Corridor Planning and Class EA Study G.W.P. 13-00-00 STUDY OVERVIEW The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is undertaking the Highway 7&8 Transportation Corridor Planning and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study, from Greater Stratford to the New Hamburg Area. The purpose of the study is to identify and address the long-term transportation needs for the Analysis Area and prepare a preliminary design for the provincial roadway components of the recommended plan. PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE #5 The public is invited to attend Public Information Centre (PIC) #5 to review and comment on the preliminary design alternatives, including preliminary roadway cross sections and crossing road treatments, and the evaluation process to be used to determine a preferred preliminary design for the entire study area from Greater Stratford to the New Hamburg area. In response to municipal stakeholder input, the Study Team will be examining in greater detail the route alternative that uses existing Highway 7&8 west of Shakespeare via a north by-pass of Shakespeare, and a segment of Road 110 as the linkage from existing Highway 7&8 to Lorne Avenue. To accomplish this, preliminary design alternatives for the north by-pass route have been generated and will be collectively evaluated with preliminary design alternatives for the previously selected south by-pass route, at the same level of detail. Both routes are illustrated below.

The PIC is offered on three dates: Wednesday, July 25, 2012 Shakespeare & District Optimist Hall 3976 Galt Street, Shakespeare 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Thursday, July 26, 2012 Stratford Rotary Complex Community Hall B 353 McCarthy Road, Stratford 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Wilmot Recreation Complex 1291 Nafziger Road, Baden 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Drop-in style open house format. Brief presentations at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The same information will be presented at each PIC. Information to be presented at this PIC will be on the study website, at local municipal offices and at local libraries beginning on July 25, 2012. Comments may be submitted at the PIC or via the study website at PROCESS The study is following the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000) process for a Group ‘A’ project. External agency and public consultation will take place throughout the study. To date, seven rounds of PICs have been held. Upon completion of the study, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) will be prepared and made available for public review. A Notice will be published at that time to explain the review process and identify the locations where the TESR is available for the 30-day public review period. COMMENTS Your comments on the information presented at PIC #5 are requested by September 28, 2012 so they can be considered in the selection of a preferred preliminary design.

Enbridge gets green light to reverse pipeline flow of Line 9 Continued from page 3

Board, after HDI filed their initial objections to the project, the organization simply faded out of the picture, not responding any further throughout the process. While the National Energy Board approved the application, it set out 15 conditions, some which are intended to address concerns raised by opponents. The conditions include a requirement to file spill contingency plans before work begins on the line and a commitment tracking table to be posted on Enbridge's website. Once Enbridge is ready to reverse the flow, it must apply for leave before opening the line. Originally Line 9 flowed from west to east, but the

flow was reversed in 1999. The line has a current capacity to carry 240,000 barrels per day. The company wants to reverse the flow to accommodate future market demand. With over 15,372 miles of crude pipeline, Enbridge said it delivers over 2.2 million barrels a day of crude oil and liquids. Enbridge has announced it will also seek to reverse the flow on the rest of Line 9, from Westover to Montreal. Attempts to speak to HDI representatives were not successful by the time Tekawennake went to press. The full text of the decision and conditions are available online from the National Energy Board.
