Six Nations Team #1 Firefighters off to Moncton


The Six Nations #1 Team will be representing the community at the National Firefighters Competition in Moncton, New Brunswick, in August, thanks to a first place finish at Saturday’s 22nd Annual Ontario Native Firefighters competition hosted at Six Nations. Five teams competed including two Six Nations teams. The 2012 National will be hosted by the Elsipogtog First Nation in Moncton, Saturday, August 18th. At the end of the rigorous competition, Six Nations #1 and Oneida finished in a dead heat, forcing a showdown tie breaker.  Each team set up a crew of five, four hose bearers and one at the pumper. On signal they had to pull a four inch

The Six Nations team completed the exercise faster than the Oneida team and

won the right to represent Ontario at the Nationals, relegating Oneida to the runnerup position. Garden River came in third, Chippewa of the Thames came in fourth and Six Nations’ second entry, the A Team, came in fifth place. The winning team consists of team captain, Jesse Brant, assistant captain Ronnie Johnson, Matthew Miller, Mark Scarrett, Greg Hackborne and alternate Dusty Thibert. Last year, Six Nations was not able to send a team to the competition which was eventually won by Team Manitoba. Ontario was represented by the Walpole Island Fire Team #1 huddles in preparation for its tie breaker against Department.

New Credit breaks ground for Community Hall By Jim Windle NEW CREDIT

After several years of talk and some debate, the Mississauga of the New Credit finally broke ground for the new Community Hall Friday across from Lloyd S. King Elementary School. Until now, any large community gatherings took place in the school gym, which isn’t always the best place for such things, as both Chief Bryan

LaForme and Councillor Cec Sault point out. “This meets our needs as a community,� says LaForme, “We have a lot of community events but we are always imposing on other groups such as the school gym. Sault concurs. “I feel we have been desperately in need of a Community Hall,� he says. “The Lloyd S King school gym was designed to be just that, a gym, not a Community

OFFICER CLEARED IN SHOOTING INCIDENT and that the force used to stop the threat was justified. There is no finding of criminal wrongdoing on the part of the Six Nations Police officer. The investigation is complete.�

On hand for the ground breaking for the brand new, New Credit Community Hall were Colleen Reid of Colleen Reid Architecture, who designed the new Hall, Fred Doolittle of KL Martin Associates, who will act as Project Manager, Councillor Cecil Sault, New Credit Chief, Bryan LaForme, John Dwyer of C.R. Construction, who will be building the new facility, and Jason Haskett of Mississaugas of the New Credit Sustainable Economic Development. (Photo by Jim Windle)

An investigation by the Ontario Provincial Police Criminal Investigation Branch has cleared a Six Nations Police officer following a shooting incident that occurred on May 20th , 2012. Constable David Lickers had pursued a suspect on foot into a wooded area that day. The suspect left the woods and entered a vehicle waiting for the suspect on Sixth Line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Constable Lickers ordered the suspects to stop numerous times and while doing so the driver of the vehicle drove directly at the officer,â&#x20AC;? said a statement released by Six Nations Police on Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fearing for his life, he [Lickers] used his service handgun and fired four shots at the driver of the vehicle before determining which direction to dive out out of the way to safety to avoid being killed by the oncoming vehicle.â&#x20AC;? The Ontario Provincial Police Criminal Investigation Branch (C.I.B.), under the direction of Acting Detective Inspector Brad Nunn, was called in by the Six Nations Police Service to investigate the shooting of a civilian by a member of the service. As a result of Constable Lickers firing his handgun, the driver of the vehicle was struck in the upper left shoulder with a bullet. The driver and passenger fled the scene, but were arrested a short while later behind the Sour Springs Plaza. The OPP were asked to investigate the shooting, and the investigation was conducted under the supervision of Acting Detective Brad Nunn. The statement issued by Six Nations Police said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The findings of the OPP C.I.B. are that the accused represented an imminent threat to the Six Nations Officer who was executing his lawful authority

Hall.â&#x20AC;? The total estimated cost of the new structure is about $2.3 million. In the future, the design can also accommodate solar power should the community wish to go that route. It will have a full commercial kitchen, and will seat up to 400 people. But it is designed to host two smaller events at once with a sliding partition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been waiting a long time for this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good day today. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on the table for about five years and we are finally seeing something happen,â&#x20AC;? said LaForme. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The timing is good now. We really need this and I think it is good for the community to be able to gather here. Its going to the theirs so we are happy about it and we look forward to it.â&#x20AC;?

Shirley Farmer honoured for her years of service By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN

For the past 24 years, she was one of the driving forces behind Ganohkwasra Family Assault Support Services, but, now that she is 80 years old, Shirley Farmer has retired from the Board of Directors and she plans on “staying home and relaxing.” But she’ll always be available for Ganohkwasra and will be joining the elder’s committee as soon as that is established. She became involved with Ganohkwasra in 1988, and Shirley is demure about how she got involved. “To be honest with you, my sister forced me,” she said. Shirley was feted on Friday by Ganohkwasra staff and a few family members, with several heart-felt and tearful thanks and well wishes proffered by Shirley’s colleagues. The antics of the Bingo Ladies helped keep things in balance, playing up the importance of the Family Assault Service and keeping the audience in stitches while they did. “Ah has the fleas,” exclaimed Tricksey, one of the three “sisters” making up the Bingo Ladies act, causing shrieks of laughter to fill the room. “Ah was so dumb I couldn’t pass my own blood test.”

The seeds of Ganohkwasra began with Shirely’s sister, Wilma General. Executive Director, Sandra Montour, outlined the history of Ganohkwasra, saying Wilma had opened up her home to women and children seeking a safe place to stay. When Shirley returned to Six Nations from the United States, she was recruited by Wilma to be involved in the shelter. Michelle Farmer, Shirley’s daughter, explained that Wilma had essentially raised Shirley, as well as another younger sister and brother, so it is not surprising that Shirley shares the same values her older sister lived by. “She’s always helped people,” Michelle said of her mother. “She let people live at our house at times.” Shirley explained her involvement by saying, “It’s just a way of life. It’s what you have in your heart.” Shirley said she always “believed women shouldn’t be treated with violence.” Elected Chief William Montour attended the festivities, crediting Shirley, who owned the Ohsweken Grocery Store, with bringing the first bank to Six Nations. He recalled being an elected councillor in 1986 when Wilma went to council to speak to the need for a shelter. “Band Council wanted [the shelter] in the back corner,” said Elected Chief Montour.

Elected Chief William Montour plants a kiss on the cheek of Shirley Farmer during a ceremonial luncheon to honour Ms. Farmer on Friday afternoon for her years of service with the Ganohkwasra Family Assault Service. Shirley served 24 years on the Board of Directors. “Wilma truly believed like me that women are here to be loved,” she said after the luncheon concluded. (Photo by Stephanie Dearing) But he said hiding the shelter would work to hide the problem. “It’s on Chiefswood Road so all can see.” Speaking of the visits paid to the new shelter by other Indigenous communities, Montour said, “They were totally blown away.” Becky Harrison presented Shirley with an eagle feather on behalf of the Board of Di-

rectors. “Shirley’s heart will always be here,” she said, adding she was looking forward to the time when Shirley would provide the guidance of an elder. Shirley “brought humour to the board and grounded the board.” One board member, who has served for 24 years as well, Alice Bomberry, carried many memories of their

involvement over the years. “Between Shirley and Wilma, we knew things were going to happen – good things.” She said she was “so glad to see the caring and concern in the community,” and said when she grew up, “my family could have used that kind of support.” “Shirley, I love you and you’ll always be a part of

this organization,” said Sandra Montour. “We will continue growing from here. You are one of our shining stars, and we love you.” Shirley was asked to speak, but she said, “I don’t like tears, and if I say much more, I’ll be broke right down. This whole place has been a lot to me and my family. It’s a good place. It’s come so far.”

Picnic celebrates day the Mush Hole died By Stephanie Dearing BRANTFORD

About a dozen former students and children of former students of the Mohawk Institute met for a picnic and games under the trees in front of the former school, known most familiarly as the “Mush Hole.” “I want everybody to be happy,” said picnic organizer Laurel Curley. “There's all kinds of research [on what happened at the school]. We got an out-of-court settlement.” Curley said she wants to organize an information session with a lawyer for survivors who hope to put in a claim for abuse by September 19th , but she didn't want to talk about that. “I'd rather talk about happy stuff. I'm looking for an adult to have a [water balloon] fight with,” Laurel Curley said. And she busied herself with filling up water

balloons and playing with the few children who were present before she served up her non-diabetic elderberry pie (no sweetener). But survivor Rosilyn Sears wasn't so hesitant to recall the past. She too had only attended for 10 months, but said she suffered post traumatic stress disorder as a result, and confessed she had difficulty raising her son until she got into counselling. “I did a work placement at the library,” after the school closed, Sears recalled. “I worked for Alice Bomberry in the same room I slept in. That was very hard.” Sears said most of her memories of the school were blocked out, but recalled being beaten with a horse strap for sitting on the stairs at one point. One of the hardest things for her was being separated from her little sister. “I hardly ever saw her, only in the playroom I saw her,”

she said. She said their mother was discouraged from visiting them, but when she insisted on a visit, they were supervised “so we wouldn't say too much. If we did, we'd get a licking.” Another painful memory for Sears was the loss of a gift from her mother. “Mother gave me a doll for Christmas. I tried to take it to bed with me, but the house mother caught me and took it. She threw it in the garbage. It was the only thing I had of my mother.” Laurel said she had attended the school for 10 months between 1969 and 1970, as did her brother, Kelly Curley. “I was here the day the Mush Hole died and that's why I was celebrating.” The school, which opened in 1831, closed in 1970, a year after the Government of Canada took it over. Laurel's brother, Kelly remembers being 13 years old

fence, which resulted in stirring up tensions between Six Nations and Haldimand residents, McHale had designs on removing the hydro tower remains that were once used as a defensive barricade by Six Nations land protectors in 2006 and again briefly in 2007. In a return letter to McHale, Hydro One confirmed that “the towers currently on the road are under Hydro One's control - they are not abandoned. As such Hydro One is not authorizing removal of these towers to any other location.” Further, Agostino states, “Hydro One Inc. does not agree with or accept your assertions in your letter about Hydro One and the tower to

which you refer ... You have no authority, consent of colour of right, explicit or implicit, to remove the tower, to place it anywhere else or to deliver it for scrap.” The Hydro One response was c.c.ed to the Ontario Provincial Police, Haldimand Council and Mayor Ken Hewitt, for clarity should McHale attempt to remove the tower parts without Hydro One approval. McHale reasons in his re-

Kelly Curley demonstrates how he and other boys would escape out of their dormitory rooms at the top of the Mohawk Institute after hours. The boys would go to the store, or rummage at the dump for food, he said. Some of the older boys knew how to get over to the girl’s dormitory, and would visit with girls. (Photo by Stephanie Dearing) when he was put into the school. On a walk around the building, which is dete-

riorating alarmingly, Kelly said the former school building should be repaired. “As

long as it's here, it's a horrible reminder to Canada of what they've done.”

sponse to Agostino that by not complying with his wishes, “Hydro One wishes the tower to continue to block the road.” The tower in question in fact is not blocking any roadway, including the entrance to Kanonhstaton. McHale continues by taking a sarcastic shot at Agostino saying , “I am surprised that you, as a lawyer and officer of the court, would write a letter that establishes that

your client wishes his property to continue to block a road illegally. I wasn’t aware that lawyers could encourage criminal behaviour.” In the past, McHale has sued or attempted to sue several media outlets, Julian Fantino, former Commissioner of the OPP, individual OPP officers and others who refuse to see his particular point of view or do his bidding by the removal of Natives from the Kanonhstaton

land, which has been under registered claim by Six Nations for decades and has yet to be resolved by either Ontario or Canada. Negotiations to that effect broke down a few years ago after Six Nations and Ontario approved of bringing in a mediator to help break the impass. Canada would not agree with that concept and removed itself from the process. Talks have not resumed since.

McHale threatens to sue Hydro One By Jim Windle HALDIMAND

It appears that Gary McHale is now suing Hydro One for not seeing the world as he and his followers do. McHale has posted on his website and released to the media his communications with Hydro One, where he is threatening legal action against the corporation, its board members, and their lawyer, Joseph Agostino, accusing them of “encouraging criminal behaviour” by not removing or allowing him and his group to remove the hydro tower remains from the Argyle street entrance of Kanonhstaton. After taking away some rotting hydro spools and a

The Wind Farms of change The sparks continue to fly between some members of the Elected Band Council and the HDI over the Samsung issue. Councillor Helen Miller, for one, is opposed to two sets of negotiations and wonders aloud why Elected Council was not asked by Samsung to bring a third party to the party, since, in her understanding anyway, there already exists a partnership agreement for the large green energy project. By paying the required $7,000 fee to the HDI, chump change for these guys, Samsung may have violated the first agreement. But they too are caught on the horns of the Six Nations governance dilemma as they are being told by the province that they must consult the Confederacy. That puts the Korean giant in a very awkward position since the province and they have a much larger agreement which is worth tens of millions. How to keep a balance in such treacherous, shark infested waters as the Six Nations internal politic will be occupying a lot more time and energy than these off-shore developers ever dreamed of. Other green energy companies, big and small, are watching closely as well, and it is assumed that if Ontario is ordering Samsung to deal with the HDI, the same goes for them too. In fact, several similar companies are on the same treadmill. We are told that Windrush Windfarm — a project of Schneider Power — has paid its $7,000 to the HDI to open talks for their project in Arthur, Ontario, and, we are told, have been given the green light, however no one outside of the HDI seems to know what, if any, benefit will come to Six Nations. Then there is the Niagara Region Wind Project by the Niagara Region Wind Corporation in the Grimsby region; the Port Dover and Nanticoke Wind Project by Capital Power set for the Nanticoke area; Summerhaven and Conestogo Wind Farms by NextEra also in the Nanticoke and Arthur regions; and the Union Gas Nanticoke Pipeline, all of which, we are told by what we consider a reliable source, have paid their $7,000 fee and have been given a seat in the waiting room. Unfortunately, we have to rely on information brought to us about what the HDI is actually doing since our several requests for a list of companies they are currently dealing with have been fruitless. It’s really too bad that while all this is going on, within both councils, the people of Six Nations have been left out of the loop, as it were, while both have bent over backwards declaring their total transparency with the people. For the HDI, they say that all this info is there for the asking, or if the people really want to know they should go to the Longhouse meetings. In the case of the Elected Council, they are just as closed mouthed about developing deals as the HDI.   But that just may be the nature of the beast when it comes to dealing with Canadian, or international corporations. There is always a confidentiality clause that runs opposed to the openness of Haudenosaunee law and keeps everything hush until it’s too late to say yes or no. Sure, both say the community will have their say once the details are in place, but as we found out in the Elected Council’s Samsung deal, even that is easily skewed. We continue to hope for a united Six Nations when all parties will put down their political weapons and find a way to lead this community ... all of this community and not just  their own adherents.

HDI and Samsung If we believe what HDI Director Hazel Hill says in the story “Samsung to open negotiations with HDI” everything between the HDI and Samsung is just hunky-dory. According to Hazel the HCCC/HDI and Samsung have “established a cooperative and respectful relationship…” Baloney I say! Truth of the matter is Samsung paid $7,000 to the HDI because Hazel and her cohorts threatened that if Samsung didn’t pay the $7,000 and go through the HCCC process 300 people would be at the site to shut down the project. So let’s call a spade a spade eh? Now Aaron Detlor and Hazel claim Samsung is ready to negotiate with the HCCC and willing to sign a “separate agreement”. But the HCCC and the HDI are forgetting Six Nations is a legal partner with Samsung and Pattern Energy in the development of the Grand Renewable Energy Park (GREP) which means Samsung can’t sign a separate agreement of any kind regarding the GREP unless both Six Nations and Pattern Energy agree. But let’s pretend Samsung does sign a separate agreement with the HCCC/HDI. First of all despite Detlor’s protests the draft agreement wasn’t available to the community. The only reason the draft agreement was made public is because the HCCC found out someone “leaked” the agreement. Detlor’s claims the agreement will be ratified in a week. But how can this be when the HCCC/ HDI didn’t even hold one night of community consultations. Nor did the HCCC hold any clan meetings. The HCCC has no intention of consulting with the community or with the clans. According to Detlor, only the chiefs, clanmothers, HDI staff, and citizens/members attending the meetings approved the draft agreement and will ratify the final agreement. Both Detlor and Hazel claim the HCCC process is community driven and that people had opportunity to participate. They claim the draft agreement was available for people to pick up but that no one had asked for a copy. There were no community meetings and no public announcements or advertisements of the meetings Detlor refers to. So the public had no way of knowing there were meetings taking place or that a draft agreement was being drawn up and approved or that the draft agreement was available for pick up. Again according to Detlor any financial compensation negotiated with Samsung will be kept confidential. He claims it will only be the chiefs, clanmothers, HDI staff and citizens/members attending the meetings who will approve the financial part of the Benefit Agreement and they will be sworn to secrecy. So the HCCC has no intention of being accountable or transparent to the community. Continued on page 7

Dundalk Info Meeting This Thursday, at the tourism building we are holding an information meeting on the proposed Dundalk sludge facility. Now before you join us on the bus travelling to Dundalk Saturday July 7th, hear for yourself the facts behind why we need to protect our Grand River. A few of our friends from Dundalk will be on hand to share their information and answer any questions you may have. We need to fill our bus Saturday that leaves from the village plaza at 10 am. We need to say “NO” to this sludge facility at the headwaters of our Grand River. Haudenosaunee presence is required. The possibility of a second bus is real if enough support from here at Six Nations is evident and required. So come out Thursday July 5 to the Tourism building at 7 pm. Corn soup is at 6 pm. Come and hear the facts. We will be united when we get on the bus Saturday leaving at 10 am. Make the decision to come. To save your spot on the bus call 905-481-0072.

HDI and Samsung Continued from page 6 The community at large will not know how much money the HCCC/HDI would negotiate. And if we don’t know the financial benefit how will we know if it’s benefitting the community? How will we know how much money the HCCC/HDI has received or spent or whatever? We still don’t know how much money the HCCC has received from developers to date. Yet in light of all the above Detlor claims the HCCC/HDI process is a free, open and transparent process that everyone can participate in. The reality of the situation today is the HCCC/HDI is putting the Samsung project in jeopardy. If Samsung cancels the project our community will lose the millions of dollars that was to be generated from this project. Not only that but other potential developers won’t want to do business with Six Nations. Now I know a lot of people don’t want development either here on the reserve or elsewhere in the tract but whether we want to believe it or not the time is coming when Six Nations will need its own source revenue just to survive as a community. The GREP project was to be the beginning of generating our own source revenue. The contents of this letter are my opinions only and not reflective of council as a whole. Councillor Helen Miller

New kindergarten graduate, 5 year old Kashaygah Hill, presented the Six Nations Public Library's summer student, Wes Martin, with pennies raised by Kawenni:io/Gaweni:yo students for the library on Friday morning. Of the students participating from Kindergarten to Grade 4, Kashaygah brought in the most coins. School parent-volunteer Donna Bomberry said the Principal and staff had collected their own coins as well, which will be brought in next week. Bomberrry said she wants to see the school do a similar fund-raiser for the library beginning in September because “the library is an important resource for our community.” The Six Nations Library is fund-raising for a much-needed new building.

Chiefs continue their methodical march By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

The Major Series Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs continue to earn points with a methodical, lunch bucket style of game that has worked for them so far this season. Saturday afternoon, the Chiefs defeated the Brampton Sr. Excelsiors, the same team they played in the same arena last Saturday afternoon, and came out with the same result and almost the same score. Last week it was an 8-4 win, this week it was 8-5. The Chiefs are now five wins and two losses closer to the halfway point of the season and share first place with the Brooklin Redmen

after seven games played. A rather odd schedule will bring the Excelsiors and the Chiefs together for the third time in a row this Thursday night in Brampton before they face the KitchenerWaterloo Kodiaks at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena, Sunday night, July 8th., at 7 pm. This will also be the fourth meeting with the Kodiaks this year.  Tom Montour, a veteran of the Chiefs for the last nine years, is happy with this year’s early success but feels his team is not playing up to their abilities yet, despite the wins. “We should be winning by much higher scores,” he said after Saturday’s game. “We’ve got to start playing

The Six Nations Chiefs and the Brampton Excelsiors are getting very familiar with one another.

better as a team. We need to practice more and get together more as a team to get everybody on the same page.” On the up side, Montour is glad the Chiefs are winning the close games, especially earlier in the season when, in years past, they would be losing them and not have enough momentum to take them very far into the playoffs.

“I like the looks of this team,” he says. “I think it’s going in the right direction right now. There is no reason why we can’t bring this team back here and put on a show for our fans in the playoffs.” He thinks this team has the stuff to once again be a Mann Cup contender ... that is with a lot more practice and a little luck. The Excelsiors took a 2-0 first period lead before

the Chiefs came alive with Clay Hill’s over-the-shoulder goal which capped off a great set-up by Sid Smith. Brampton answered when Ryan Learn sling-shotted a side arm shot past Jeff Poulin in the Chiefs net to make it 3-1. Cody Jamieson ignited the Chiefs’ fire again at 2:18 of the second period with Colin Doyle and Rhys Duch assisting, then assisted on Roger

Arrows sharp entering playoffs By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

The Six Nations Arrows Express left no doubt they are ready for a serious Minto Cup run after completing their regular season in St. Catharines Saturday night with a 21-7 romp over the Athletics who were unfortunate enough to draw Six Nations as their round one playoff opponents. In the first game of the best of five series, played Monday at Six Nations, the Arrows continued to pulverize the A’s with an 18-1 lambasting led by Randy Staats’ nine point game by way of two goals and seven assists and Brendan Bomberry’s three goals and three assists. The Athletics looked anything but athletic as the Arrows' barrage of offence and stonewall defence made them look like boys against men.  Some might want to accuse the Arrows of running up the score, but according to them, this is playoff lacrosse and they have no intention of letting up no matter what the score is. But even at that, they weren’t totally merciless. In the third period the Arrows chose to work on their ball control game rather than continue to fill the net with rubber. Warren Hill stopped 21 of the 22 shots sent his way for the easy win. The next target for the Arrows is to go into the two week 2012 World U-19 Field Lacrosse Championships shut with this series in the bag. Several OLA box lacrosse players will also play on either Team Iroquois or Team Canada for that series.  The next two games will be in St. Catharines Wednesday and Thursday with games #4 and #5 at the ILA, Friday at 8 pm and Saturday at 2 pm, if necessary. The last win of the regular season on Saturday night at the ILA tied the Arrows and the Whitby Warriors for top

spot in the OLA Jr. A, however, when a goal differential between the two teams was compared, the Arrows came out on top, and will have home floor advantage throughout the playoff season. Saturday night, the Arrows offence was led by Randy Staats who finished the regular season with a a remarkable 12 point game on seven goals and five assists. Johnny Powless chipped in with two goals and seven assists for a nine pointer, and Brendan Bomberry scored two and assisted on five for seven points. Josh Johnson added two goals and three assists. The Athletics were never in the game right from the get-go as the Arrows jumped into an 8-3 lead after 20 minutes. Randy Staats scored five Arrows goals in a row between 6:47 and 18:10 of the first period, two of those on the powerplay. The second period was

ney endured the entire game in the St. Catharines cage. Thursday night at the ILA, the Brampton Excelsiors felt the sting of the red hot Arrows as Six Nations levelled a 16-8 whooping on their GTA guests. Joel Matthews struck first for the Arrows at 3:59 and Kyle Isaacs added another at 8:23, on a powerplay. Brampton answered quickly with Phillip Caputo’s goal to make it 2-1, but Matthews scored his second at 15:02 and Johnny Powless lifted the score to 4-1 before Brampton scored a late one to end the first period with the Arrows ahead 4-2. There were 11 goals scored in the second, seven by Six Nations and four by Brampton. Arrows‘ Shayne Adams delivered the 5-2 goal at 1:04 to get things going for Six Nations. Randy Staats and Kyle Issacs scored back to back shorthanded goals at 3:01 and 3:31 but Bramp-

In the last three games of the regular season he recorded 24 points and then added another nine points in game one of the first playoff round.

Six Nations' second period goals were scored by Vaughn Harris, Seth Oaks, Johnny Powless, his second, and Shayne Adams’ second of the period as the Arrows

took an 11-6 lead into the third period. The Arrows outscored Brampton 5-2 in the final frame to record the 16-8 win with Warren Hill in net.

The loss of Bomberry would have been a blow to the team, but he was able to recover quickly and is back in the lineup. (Photo by Jim Windle) even worse for the Athletics as Six Nations poured on another nine goals to build a 17-5 score to that point. With the game well in hand, the Arrows eased off a bit in the third period, outscoring the A’s 4-2 for the 21-7 final score. Six Nations outshot St. Kitts 59-30.

Niagara falls 3 straight - second round opens Thursday Jim Windle with files by Wray Maracle SIX NATIONS The 4-time Founders Cup champions and 2012 Founders Cup hosts’ Six Nations Rebels defeated Niagara Thunderhawks 13-7 to sweep the best-of-five Western Conference quarter-finals series Friday night before 400 fans at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena (ILA). The Rebels’ next opponent will be the Orangeville Northmen for the Western Conference semi-finals which will begin Thursday night, July 5th, at the ILA beginning at 8 pm. Monday, the series goes to Game #2 in Orangeville at theTony Rose Arena before returning to the ILA next Thursday at 8 pm, for Game #3. Game #4, if necessary, is in Orangeville, next Saturday July 14th at 7 pm, and Game #5 if required will be at the ILA Sunday, July 15th, at 7 pm. “We’ve got a few injuries we are dealing with,” says Executive General Manager Wray Maracle. “We’ve got a couple of guys out with shoulder injuries which makes our right side a little soft.” The Rebels have only three active players on the right side now, but Maracle expects one of those injured players to return in the Orangeville series and the other by the next round after that. “We’re in a situation now where if we lose someone else on that side, we will be in a tough spot,” said Maracle.  The Rebels usually carry six left handed shots.     Friday night, the Rebels jumped out to a 3-0 lead on goals by  Harris Lemon  (0:09),  Tony Dox-

tator (7:49) and  Jacob Bomberry  (9:07) before Niagara got on the board as  Scott Johnston  (11:02) and Thunderhawks captain, Blade Garlow (13:09) made it a 3-2 game. Rebels Doxtator (16:05) gave the home team a 4-2 lead heading into the first intermission. Rebels outshot Niagara 2212 in the first period. The second period was a wide open affair with a lot of end to end action.  Doxtator  (6:00) completed his hat-trick. Niagara’s  Kervin Jonathan  responded just nine seconds later.  Wayne Hill (7:26) made it 6-3 for the Rebels. Kyle Henry (10:45) replied with a Thunderhawks’ powerplay marker while  Wayne Hill  (11:20) potted his 2nd of the contest for a 7-4 lead after 40 minutes of play. Rebels outshot Thunderhawks 18-15 in the second period.  In the 3rd period, Rebels  Wayne Hill’s  (6:58) hat-trick and game-winning-goal started a flurry of five goals in the next 1:09. Thunderhawks David Evert  (7:08), Rebels  Carney Johnson  (7:17), Niagara’s  Spencer Allen  (7:29) and Rebels Brine Rice (8:07) for a 10-6 Rebels lead. Rebels  Wayne Hill  (12:29) scored his 4th of the game. As time became the enemy of the Thunderhawks, Niagara pulled their goalie with 5:35 remaining on the game clock only to backfire as  Daniel ‘Bo’ Henhawk (14:45) scored into the empty net. Niagara’s  Scott Johnston (19:13) scored his 2nd of the game on a powerplay while Rebels  Kevin Davey (19:38) made it 13-7 to complete the scoring in the series. Rebels finished with an 18-15 edge in shots dur-

The Rebels are the odds on favourites to repeat as Founders Cup Champions this year.

Their next opponents will be Orangeville in round two of the playoffs which begins either Wednesday or Thursday night at the ILA.

Six Nations ball player makes National Team By Stephanie Dearing OKLAHOMA CITY, OK

19 year old Carey-Leigh Thomas was, as might be expected, a bit nervous about trying out for Softball Canada’s Senior Women’s National Team this past June. After all, even though Carey has had experience on the Junior National Team, she was competing against women from across Canada who are some of the best ball players in the country. When Tekawennake interviewed Carey-Leigh in April, she said, “It’s the senior women’s team, it’s the highest you can go and everyone is so much older and so experienced, and so I feel kind of intimidated by that, but I want to show them that I can play with them and that I can play at that level.” But Carey’s nervousness was unwarranted, as the talented player showed her stuff and made the team. “Right now she’s in our athlete pool and she’s certainly up for selection if she plays well over the next couple of weeks,” said Softball Canada spokesperson, Gilles LeB-

lanc. Thomas was put into a uniform on June 23rd for the Title IX game, LeBlanc said. It was Carey’s first time playing for the senior team in a game. “She came off the bench and pinch hit for us and got a single. That’s a really good start for her.” Thomas also stole a base in that game, said LeBlanc. “I think she surprised them. Her first game, her first hit! She opened up some eyes that night,” said Carey’s mother, Shelley Thomas. “That team basically consists of all Olympic players or all pro players.” LeBlanc said Carey “did represent us as well in December at our World Championships in the Junior Women’s category and she did really well in that category as well. We were really happy with her last year.” Softball Canada considers the athlete pool to “be a ‘snapshot’ of Canadian talent in women’s softball, and being in the pool means Thomas has a shot at making the team this year. Leblanc said the world championship team hasn’t been chosen yet. “After

the Canadian Open, we’re going to cut down a few players for our world championship team. We won’t know until about July 10th, I think, when we name the team.” LeBlanc said Thomas would be put in a few games over this week as the team continues to play in Oklahoma. “We’re looking forward to seeing what she can do,” he said. The games are being broadcast on TSN, which is how Carey’s family is keeping up with her, said Shelley Thomas. “That’s how big it is! She’s on the sports channel!” She said Carey was tapped to play with the team for the tournament in British Columbia, and expects her daughter will travel with the team to Yellowknife, even if she doesn’t play. “She’s probably going to be learning from those ladies and next year, I’m sure she’ll have her spot.” Softball Canada “only took the best” for the Senior Women’s Team, said Shelley. “Her teammates are all so nice. I thought she’d be homesick, but no, she’s having a ball. She’s learned so much already.”

Carey-Leigh is sharing a room with her idol, Megan Timpf. Timpf, who is from Port Dover, was on the women’s team, representing Canada at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Softball has since been cut from the Olympics. “If there were Olympics,” said Shelley, “she’d be gone. She’d be gone with them, our little girl from Six Nations.” After being put out onto the ball diamond, Shelley said Carey-Leigh sent a message. “She said any little chance that they give her an inch, she’s going to show them she can do a mile. Any chance they give her, she’s going to show them she can be up there with the best of them.” “She’s always said this is where she’ll end up, this is what her goal is. She’s only 19,” said Shelley. Heading into selection camp, Carey-Leigh “didn’t want to disappoint anybody, especially her community here at Six Nations,” Shelley explained. “I’m sure they’re going to keep her in mind for a long, long time. It took them long enough to get her there!”

Hill United, a Six Nations baseball team took it upon themselves to sponsor Carey-Leigh Thomas to help her get to the Team Canada selection camp in June. Carey-Leigh is holding a mock cheque. Carey’s mother, Shelley, said Carey normally works through the summer, but this year she hasn’t had the chance. Hill United gave Carey $1,500, and Shelley said the family is very grateful for the assistance. (Submitted photo)

A message for today - from the late Mrs. Alma Greene - Part 2 SIX NATIONS TERRITORY Alma Greene, Mohawk historian, Elder, author and seer wrote a letter in the 1960’s or 70’s calling for the abolition of the Indian Act.   This letter was a submission she made to the Indian Affairs office regarding the historically based proof of Six Nations national sovereignty. There is no point in history or any legal act of legislation that ended this sovereignty and Six Nations has never given it up. Therefor, according to International Treaty law, Six Nations remains a sovereign Nation. Last week we published the first part of her letter. The following is the conclusion: In 1739, the lords of trade addressed the lords of the Privy Council; “We shall observe to your lordships that these Six Nations are the most powerful and war-like of the ancient of that part of America. That they have always been faithful allies to the British settlement in those parts. We may add that these Six Nations are looked upon to be a great support of the British Empire in those parts.” (N.Y. Doc 6 P 256) In 1748 Sir William Johnson wrote Governor Clinton; “Your Excellency is plenipotentiary (meaning having all diplomatic power) with the Indians who, though called subjects, are a foreign people, and are to be treated with as immediately from the King, of His Majesty’s Governor.” (N.Y. Doc 6 P540)  Proceedings of Council, April 19, 1757. Brethren — let all nations of Indians know that the great King of England, my master, is their friend, that He desires all nations of Indians may unite together, be as one body and one blood. He offers them His alliance and protection, which all princes and peoples over the great lake are proud and glad of.” (N.Y. Doc 7 P 246) Sir William Johnson writes the Earl of Shelborne, Sept. 22, 1767. “They, the Six Nations called themselves a free people who had an independent land, which were their

ancient possessions, that the French by ceding Canada, according to the words of the treaty granted what was not in their power to give; their outposts and distant possessions being only held by them, not by conquest but by favour; that if they admitted our rights to the posts we conquered, the country was still theirs and in fact it is most certain the French never spoke to them in any other style, as sensible of the consequences it might with regard to their interest.” (N.Y. Doc 7 P 958) In 1768 a line of demarcation was established between the lands of the Six Nations and the lands of the King and their full independence acknowledged by the Treaty of Fort Stanwix, at this time the Six Nations was regarded as a distinct political community, capable of making treaties or compacts to which the law of England did not extend. Governor Simcoe writing Dundas, Secretary of the

State, on July 3, 1794; “It rests for me to observe Sir, that I have always considered an Article of the Treaty of Utrecht to be the only authentic document that defines the state of the Indians, as far as it respects the European nations, whose whose line of demarcation as limited by themselves for their own mutual guidance, gives to the Indians and their respective traders, the utmost freedom therein and considers the nations as entirely independent.” (Can. Arch. Co. Off. Rec. Series Q Vol. 280 — 1 P.M. 201 — 207) In a further report (Can, Arc. Q 183 P 87) is stated; “The manners of the Indians required that the tract assigned them should be in common, inalienable and kept out of the view of our municipal laws, at least so long as they affected to consider themselves independent allies, for this purpose, a council, a treaty, a belt, was adequate. It was a

compact of one nation with another, to be governed by general rules and not by the provisions of the common law of England. To answer the fair intent all as done that ought to have been done to have been adequate to the wish of the Indians and the extent of the Government, new circumstances must have arisen to justify and call by the Indians on the government for further assurances or change ... The Government cannot wish to constrain them or to introduce our laws among them so long as they continue a people apart.” It is a fact that should not be forgotten by anyone considering the historical position of the Six Nations that neither the Province of New York in its colonial days, nor the Imperial Parliament of Great Britain, ever passed either an Act of Assembly or Parliament by which it was sought to regulate, govern or interfere with the affairs of the Six Nations, and that the

first Act of Parliament which ever did so, was that passed by Canada in 1859, reserved by the then Governor-General for Her Majesty’s special consideration, and which received the Royal assent only on the assurance of the Governor-General in his dispatch transmitting a draft of same to England made “no changes whatever to the rights of the Indian tribes.” The Royal instructions of Indian Affairs of July 10, 1764, imposed no restraints on the Indians, but only on the whites and provided the methods by which business with the Indian tribes was to be regulated. Strictly speaking, the original status, rights, and privileges of the Six Nations.

Hon. Frank Oliver, speaking in the House of Commons, May 11, 1914 (Hansard) said; “These are the bands of the Six Nations Indians located on the Grand River in Ontario, who, I maintain are in a different legal position from any other Indian bands who are native to this country. These Indian bands on the Grand River had their original home in the United States. At the close of the war of the revolution they emigrated to Canada and were given lands under special treaty, not as subjects of Great Britain but as allies for Great Britain and I maintain that the holding of these Six Nations Indians on Continued on page 13

CAREERS A message for today Continued from page 12 the Grand River is of such a kind that this parliament has no right to interfere with it. I admit that Parliament has the power to interfere with the rights of Indians, under treaty made with this government, but I say that this Parliament has no right to interfere with a treaty made between the Imperial Government and the Six Nations Indians.” When rebellion broke out in America, the King called on his allies, the Six Nations, for assistance, and promised, if given, he would “protect them and preserve them in all their rights.” Lord Dartmouth on July 5, 1775, wrote Colonel Guy Johnson, who had succeeded as Superintendent of the Six Nations after the death of the great Sir William Johnson: “The present state of affairs in His Majesty’s Colonies in which an unnatural rebellion has broken out, that threatens to overturn the constitution ... as that His Majesty may rely on their assistance in any case in which it may be necessary

to require it.” (N.Y. Doc 8 P 592) By Tradition, as of the Kings of centuries past, the Six Nations Confederacy never casts a vote and never lends its support to any political candidate and with the original Haldimand Deed in their possession, the Six Nations feel that voting for the sale of any part of their Grand River Country would violate their treaty rights. After the passing of the North America Act, a Wampum Belt was presented to Six Nations by Col. Clause on behalf of the Canadian Government. This was a token of regard for the Mohawks and others of the Six Nations who had ever proven themselves “faithful allies of the British” and conferred upon them the full and perpetual right to live as a Nation within a Nation” conforming always to their ancient rules and customs which the Government would never force them to change.”  Mrs. Alma Greene

Tekawennake News Weather Summary Tekawennake’s Seven Day Forecast

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

Aries, the week may begin a little offkilter, but you’ll find that by Wednesday or Thursday, things turn around significantly. A couple of opportunities for socialization arise.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

Take inventory of your life this week, Taurus, and make the necessary tweaks to align you with your primary goals. Take a cue from someone organized.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, you’re inspired to do something creative. Narrow down the possibilities. Maybe you want to paint indoors or take on a new craft hobby. Either way you’ll find success.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Even the most organized people can get tripped up once in a while, Cancer. This week you may be unable to keep track of things. Keep your cool, and you will get it under control.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

Take control of a situation that arises, Leo, because right now it seems no one else is capable of handling the situation. You may prove to be an excellent leader.
