The 44th annual Easter Egg Hunt put on by Six Nations of the Grand on Friday March 29 was another unqualified success. Hundreds of children and their parents show up for the hunt, which was over within minutes of starting. The weather, while blustery, was otherwise spring-like. Those lucky children who had managed to scoop up some specially marked bags of candy received more Easter goodies in the way of pre-packed gift bags. The children took to the stage at the Community Hall to allow their families to get photographs of their good fortune. (Photographs by Stephanie Dearing).

TEKAWENNAKE

Six Nations elder Nina Burham passes away By Stephanie Dearing SIX NATIONS

She wasn't a rebel, but she was an activist. Nina Burnham never stopped working to create a better life for Six Nations members, and never stopped giving of herself to the Anglican Church. Now Nina has begun what Reverend Norm Casey (St. Peter's Church, Six Nations) calls a new walk, a new journey. Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald fondly described Nina as “one of those people who made you feel like a hot property.” She had a strict manner, but “to know she was there, that she was supporting you” meant a lot, said the Bishop. The first Anglican Native National Bishop, MacDonald said he had to deal with some hard days as Bishop, but Nina's unwavering support helped him wade through. Bishop MacDonald said he had known Nina for approximately 10 years. “She meant a lot to me.” Reverend Casey said the feeling was mutual, that Nina was devoted to the Bishop. She never married, never had children, but Nina's years as a dental hygienist influenced at least a generation of children, not just in Six Nations, but throughout Ontario's First Nations. She started her career in 1962 here at the Six Nations dental clinic, but travelled the province providing preventative dental care to every First Nation. “She used to give us heck for not brushing our teeth,” recalled OPP Aboriginal Liaison, Mark Hill, recalling his visits to the Six Nations clinic. “That was thirty or forty years ago.” It might look from the outside that Nina's life was uncomplicated. But the times and issues she witnessed and had to confront throughout her life, particularly as a Six Nations Elected Councillor were complicated and turbulent. During the 19 years Nina

TEKAWENNAKE

In Memory of Ms. Nina Burnham Today, we witness the passing of a great leader. Our community is stronger for the life-long work and commitment of Nina Burnham in both politics and health care. She tirelessly gave of her time, home and in many cases financial resources to help our community through good times as well as tough times. Many community members may remember when Nina used to board the ship that carried health care to the northern communities of present day Nunavut. Nina served as a dental therapist on this boat for a number of summers and then came home to provide the same care to our people

in the dental clinic in Ohsweken. Although Nina had no biological children, she often talked about her thousand children that she both loved and encouraged. Some received lessons in health care and the importance of education but all received maternal advice on how to live a good and caring life. Personally, I served with Nina on the Six Nations Council in 1976-1977. One of the accomplishments that Nina spear headed was pari-mutual horse racing. I remember her impassioned speeches to the provincial officials who deemed that we were breaking the law by having ‘bet-

ting on the reserve’. Nina never shied away from a good fight. She took on most of her male colleagues, including me, on that Council. She always saw the bigger picture that sometimes we either could not see or refused to acknowledge. Nina Burnham represented District 3 during 2terms that I served as Chief from 1985 to 1989. As a Councilor she still was very supportive of the community as she was in 1976-77. She supported the community without question during the school crisis when the community agreed to ‘go on strike’ against the department of Indian Affairs over the dilapi-

dated condition of our schools. I remember well the last meeting with the Minister of Indian Affairs, Pierre Cadieaux, when Nina and community members who were in the meeting ‘tore strips off ‘Minister Cadieaux and convinced him that the better part of valour on his part was to give Six Nations 3 new schools. In 1987 we had the good fortune to be invited to England to present a headdress to a British warship; Brave. Nina was resplendent in her traditional dress standing on the deck of this warship as a guest of the British Royal Navy. After the ceremony we were the guests of the Captain in

a very formal dinner aboard ship. Nina kept everyone of the ship’s company enthralled with her stories and anecdotes of life at Six Nations. I have lost a very good friend and supporter in Nina Burnham, but as she would expect and demand that there is still a future to create for this wonderful community. So as Nina is committed into God’s loving care, I ask that we give thanks for this wonderful, wise, strong and determined Six Nations woman, who always seen the big picture. Chief Councillor Bill Montour

Improving Aboriginal Health a national priority By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN How health care is delivered to patients is changing in Ontario. The focus is moving away from the medical system and shifting to the patient, with the goal of improving the health of the population, and just as importantly, patient satisfaction. Representatives from the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant LHIN (Local Health Integrated Network) spent time at Six Nations in March, bringing that message of change, and holding a special think tank to gather the input of patients, health and social services providers on how to improve Aboriginal Health. “We're really trying to provide an Aboriginal perspective to the LHIN Strategic Plan,” LHIN Advisor Julie Darnay said. The think tank is the latest step in a process that has been underway for several years. The Aboriginal Health Network, which includes representatives from Six Nations and New Credit, identified three priority areas for Aboriginal populations within the network area: • Reduce youth suicide, and strengthen services to support youth's mental health; • Reduce the Aboriginal rate of diabetes and other chronic conditions; • Reduce domestic violence; support strong, stable, responsible families. Donna Cripps, Chief Executive Officer of the local LHIN, explained the strategic plan to Elected Council's

Committee of the Whole on March 18. the strategic plan will be in effect from April 2013 to March 2016. The emphasis of the plan is to “improve a person's experience; we want the same quality health care for a patient no matter where they are treated,” said Cripps. “And we want the healthcare system to be there into the future.” “The work you do here should be modelled throughout the LHIN,” Cripps told the councillors. “You have some amazing health care programs. We want to build on that. People come from across the country to see what you have here. You have the best in the province,” she said, naming the birthing center, the dialysis unit and the family health team. The LHIN provides funding to Six Nations, Cripps reminded the Committee. For example, $183.000 a year goes to the outreach team, while other funding is earmarked for mental health and addictions. The supportive housing program will have a case manager thanks to LHIN funding. But many Native patients have reported feeling as if they are not understood by non-Native health care practitioners. Cripps said the organization is working on cultural training, and 250 health care providers have been receiving training through March. “I think that's really exciting. We want to build on it,” she said, noting more people need to receive training. “But it's a start.” Cripps said the Six Nations

dialysis center will soon have Facilitator Amber Skye another six chairs activated, told the approximately 60 allowing 12 people to receive people who gathered at Six the life-saving treatment. Nations Polytechnic for the

brainstorming session on March 19, “Today is a window of opportunity ... for us as a community and a people to contribute” to health care. Skye said she hoped the information that came out of the one-day consultation would help improve the Aboriginal patient experience. According to statistics provided by LHIN, Aboriginal people smoke three times more than non-Native people, and have twice the rate of heavy drinking. With lower incomes, lower life expectan-

cies and higher rates of illness than non-Native people, the LHIN began a “collaboration to wellness” in 2006. The think tank probed into the current patient experiences of Six Nations members, using eight different chronic illnesses as a focus. In the afternoon, people mapped out what they would like to see in place for future Aboriginal health care. Darnay said she expected a formal report on the think tank would be available in the near future.

SN Food Bank seeks a permanent home By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN

say anything. She said if anyone is “really, really hard up, we don't charge them the five bucks if we know their story is true.” Buck said they were charging $5.00 per visit to the food bank because community members who are not in need have been accessing the services offered. People can visit the food bank once a week, but Buck said the food bank is just a supplement for people, and is not intended to provide food for every single meal. The food bank has no secure source of funding, and instead relies on donations from community members, Six Nations Elected Council and the Dream Catchers Foundation and other organizations. Lacking computers until recently, all the records were kept by hand. Buck told council statistics are now being generated, and she took

advantage of the opportunity to remind the elected body, “We're just learning the food bank business.” Six Nations community members took over the food bank in early 2012 when a local church congregation decided the time had come for them to take a new direction, and they stopped offering emergency food assistance. The Community Food Bank now has a board of directors, which includes Six Nations Police Chief Glenn Lickers. Mary Montour is the chair of the board. Buck networks with other food banks in the area, and said sometimes there are trades between the different organizations. The Six Nations Community Food Bank is “trying to do programming for how to can tomatoes, how to can beans, how to dehydrate food, coupons, so they

can learn how to help themselves better,” said Buck. She said many of the people using the food bank “are in dire need.” The organization also has money to help clients become more self-sufficient. “People have to have some other source of helping themselves,” said Buck, “because we're only a supplement.” “I certainly appreciate them doing this,” said District Three Elected Councillor Roger Jonathan. “Lower income people are struggling, fixed income elders are coming in to use it,” he said, saying council would continue to support the food bank. Elected Chief Montour said he knows someone who is willing to donate a building for a permanent food bank. Council is exploring the availability of land to see if is possible to bring the food bank back into Ohsweken.

Elected Chief William Montour is leading the way to find a permanent home for the Six Nations Community Food Bank. The organization, which provides food to community members in need, was located behind Iroquois Plaza, but quickly outgrew the small building it was housed in. Food bank Co-ordinator Sadie Buck is dreaming of a permanent home. “We're trying to get a regular building so we don't have to keep moving,” she told council on March 19. The food bank, which outgrew the little shed behind Iroquois Lodge, is now Sadie Buck (seated, front) provided Elected Council with a located on Fourth Line, past verbal update on the Six Nations Community Food Bank on Stoneridge, and Buck said it March 19. The organization had to relocate out of Ohsweken, is not an accessible location, but would like to find a permanent home within the village particularly for the seniors for the services offered. (Photograph by Stephanie Dearing). who live in Ohsweken and who do not drive. “We can't keep moving,” Buck said. “One of the thing we're looking into is getting a building.” The organization has funds earmarked for a building, she said. In January of this year, 209 people accessed the food bank, Buck said. She said the total number of people helped was approximately 1,000. “I'm estimating that we'll have more people this year than we did last year. I think people are just now starting to realize that the food bank can help them.” Buck said more people were requesting application forms for the food bank, and the food bank has received more applications for help this year than last. Six Nations Rebels took time prior to their practice Thursday night to give some goodwill and $$$ back to the Six Nations community.

Harper is First Nations and the environment’s worst nightmare It has come to light that the United Nations Special Advisor on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, James Anaya, has been knocking on Stephan Harper’s door for 13 months now trying to obtain a protocol invitation into Canada on the request of several First Nations across the country. So far, Harper has not responded to the UN request. Although Anaya has recently played down the situations in the media by splitting hairs between what is an outright rejection and a politically slow response, the fact remains that Harper’s government does not seem to want the UN nosing around its dealings with the Indigenous people living within Canada. Anaya has been invited into several other countries in recent months throughout Asia, Europe, Australia and the United States, but has yet to receive the long requested invitation from Harper. “Under the relevant procedures and rules of the United Nations and its member States, I am required to have the consent of the government of a country in order to enter it for an official visit in my capacity as UN Special Rapporteur,” he explained in a media release, adding that he has received several requests from First Nations in Canada to visit the country. “In February of 2012 I formally communicated to  the Government of Canada my desire to conduct an official visit to and requested its cooperation for the visit. I have since reiterated that request to the Government.  Canada has what is known as a “standing invitation” for Special Rapporteurs of the UN Human Rights Council to visit Canada, and hence my request for the visit made reference to that standing invitation. I have not yet received a response to my request, but I have been told informally that it is being considered.” Earlier this year, Anaya offered Harper some “advice” regarding the Idle No More protests that spread around the world, but were centred in this country. In an official statement, he urged the Canadian Government to establish a meaningful dialogue with the country’s aboriginal leaders. “Both the Government of Canada and First Nations representatives must take full advantage of this opportunity to rebuild relationships in a true spirit of good faith and partnership,” he further advised. Anaya also stressed that the dialogue between the Government and First Nations should proceed in accordance with standards expressed in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The Declaration states that indigenous peoples have the right to maintain their distinct identities and cultures as a basis of their development and place in the world, to pursue their own destinies under conditions of equality, and to have secure rights over lands and resources, with due regard for their traditional patterns of use and occupancy. Anaya began speaking out against Canada’s treatment of its indigenous people much earlier, and says he is monitoring the situation very closely and should he not get an invitation soon, he could find other means to engage with the Indigenous people of Canada.

OIL SANDS A SLIPPERY SLOPE

Meanwhile, as you read several stories from the national wire services published in this issue of the Tekawennake, a clear and present danger is becoming more evident regarding the extraction and shipment of “dirty” oil from the Alberta Oil Sands, Harper’s love child conceived with the big oil companies. This is just another reason why the people — indigenous and non — not only should, but must stand up to the arrogance of this present Tory government. Nothing seems to matter with this man and his regime except money, and lots of it, all at the expense of the environment and the people who live anywhere near the oil sands themselves or the thousands of miles of pipelines proposed to move it.

OUR KIDS ARE ALRIGHT Just, wanted to write a few words, from my perspective, as an older adult, that tries to help out in Six Nations Territory. First, of all I try to work with the youth of any ages, when ever, where ever I can. As, past president of 6 years with The Six Nations Native Pageant, I had the privalage of working with many “yute”. Since, then I have been asked to help out with different programs, pertaining to working with the young ones. One, program I wanted to get going on Six Nations was, an Arts After School Kids Program. This , would introduce our kids grades 6-8 to the arts, ie. Music singing, instruments, theatre and arts ie clay, painting etc, before they get on into high school unfortunately, our committee could not get er going, so we put it on hold, for now. My, latest, go around with our youth. I, was contacted by New Directions and asked if I, would consider being a go between with about 15 teenagers, working on an anti-smoking program. The ultimate goal would be to do an anti-smoking campaign at the lil nhl held in Missaguia. I, did not have to think to long and said, yep. Our, program consisted of two weekends of getting ideas into focus and putting them on paper and then finally testing them out to see if they would work. Making posters up, we even had some Six Nations Cheerleaders, that made up some cheers for this event we were going to. I, must say getting to know these teens was very rewarding, we, had discussions on how to treat everyone. The, way we would like to be treated, ie respectfully, no name calling, having discussions about different opinions, coming to a happy medium. All of this sure paid off. We, went to Missaguaia for three days to present our program. I, must say the kids were awesome. In our discussions we had talked about, when any one leaves Six Nations Territory, they will be watched, an to consider themselves as Ambassadors of Six Nations. All, went so well, we got many comments on the good behavior of everybody, even me! So, I could not rest until I, wrote this short piece. O’ a side note the team leaders said that, where ever the lil nhl is done they recruit kids from the nearest reserve to do this program. They, commented that they usually get maybe 7 kids out, and were amazed at our turn out and how well behaved everyone was, ya even me! And, would put in that it should be done here, again ASAP. Thankx for your time, an have a good day, Cam Staats

TEKAWENNAKE

Exposing Prime Minister Harper’s top advisor By Anthony Hall Decoding the Encounter between Professor Tom Flanagan and Idle No More at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta Canada. Professor Tom Flanagan was instrumental in mentoring, grooming and handling Stephen Harper during the most formative stages of the meteoric political career of Canada’s current prime minister. Professor Flanagan is a UStrained political scientist who was hired by a transplanted Pentagon intelligence expert to help make Calgary safe for Houston and Dallas-based oil companies in Texas North. Professor Flanagan was politically disowned recently by many of his former students and associates, including by Stephen Harper, for characterizing the consumption of child pornography as a victimless crime that should be met with counseling rather than incarceration. Professor Flanagan made the comments in response to questions from Levi Little Mustache and Aboriginal supporters of the Idle No More movement who look at the denigration entailed in child pornography through the lens of many of their their people’s harsh experiences as victims of the child sexual exploitation in Canada’s federallyfunded system of Christian residential schools for Aboriginal youths. On March 13, I devoted a

three-hour university class to looking at the media coverage, political fallout, historical background, and future implications of Tom Flanagan’s controversial presentation two weeks earlier. I did so as a long-serving member of the Arts and Science Faculty at the University of Lethbridge where, on February 27, Professor Flanagan delivered his talk, including the nownotorious comment displaying his libertarian extremism on the subject of child pornography and the law. Over the years Professor Flanagan and I have exchanged opposing interpretations on Aboriginal matters in a number of venues, both academic and journalistic. In August of 2000 I reviewed a book by Tom Flanagan’s in The Globe and Mail. In the late 1990s I debated him for an hour on the airwaves of CBC Radio. During this period I invited my colleague from the Political Science Department at the University of Calgary to lecture my students, many of them Aboriginal, in the Department of Native American Studies at the University of Lethbridge. This academic unit was the first of its kind to be established in western Canada. Professor Flanagan accepted my invitation to help my students gain access to a perspective on Aboriginal matters very different from my own. Those governed by the Indian Act were deemed to be

insufficiently civilized to be afforded the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. As such they were denied the capacity to vote or gain public office in federal or provincial elections. They could not sign binding contracts. They could not hold positions involving exchanges of signatures and contractual obligations. They were thus precluded, for instance, from becoming lawyers or bankers. As human beings placed outside the domain of legal “personhood” they could not defend their rights and titles through civil litigation in court. At the same time corporations like the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, whose expanding frontiers were mirrored by the imploding frontiers of Indian Country, were extended the status of “natural persons.” During the decade when I hosted Professor Flanagan as a visiting lecturer in my classes and throughout the following decade my adversarial colleague acted as Stephen Harper’s mentor, co-author, campaign manager, political adviser, and behind-thescenes fixer in the process of creating the conditions that would bring to power a Conservative Party majority government in 2011. This shift from the indigenous conservatism of Canada to the imported conservatism of the United States has huge implications for all Canadians but especially for Aboriginal peoples. In the era of conflict culminating in the War of 1812 the Red Tory tradition

of Canada was founded in the negotiation of an expanding Covenant Chain of CrownAboriginal treaties. In their most classical forms of expression these agreements signified friendship, commercial cooperation, military alliance, and resource sharing between distinct peoples. Until the end of the War of 1812 in the East and the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the West this British imperial policy of treaty alliances with Indigenous peoples provided the basis of Crown claims to what was then referred to most often as British North America. In the War of 1812 Canada was saved from annexation by the United States by the fighting prowess of about 12,000 Aboriginal soldiers serving Tecumseh’s Indian Confederacy. But the assault by the Harper-Flanagan juggernaut on the generally friendly orientation of Canadian conservatism towards the state, towards Indigenous peoples, and towards the institutions of Crown sovereignty helped clear aside obstacles to the importation from United States of the Republican Party’s jihad on managed capitalism. Flanagan and Harper took charge of the Canadian version of the Reagan Revolution aimed at transforming the social welfare state into the stock market state. As is now coming to light, a big part of this assault on the indigenous conservatism of Canada is the push to obliterate the constitutional force

of the Royal Proclamation of 1763 as well as its outgrowths in the still-expanding domain of Crown-Aboriginal treaties whose constitutional character is recognized and affirmed in Canadian law. As I have tried to outline in my historical works, King George III came up with the Royal Proclamation of 1763 based on the advice of Sir William Johnson, a top official of the British Imperial Indian Department based in New York colony. Following the defeat of the French imperial forces in North America Johnson counseled the British imperial government to hold out an olive branch to the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the Mississippi Valley. Johnson advised his Tory colleagues in the imperial government to entice Indians to join the British Empire based on promises that the Crown would protect the Aboriginal and treaty rights of its Aboriginal allies. Canada’s commitment to recognize and affirm the existence of Aboriginal and treaty rights was renewed with the patriation of the Canadian constitution from Great Britain in 1982. To understand the career of Professor Flanagan is to understand the political agenda of huge commercial interests inside and outside of Canada that seek to terminate Aboriginal and treaty rights as major impediments to the corporate

exploitation of northern North America’s so-called natural resources. To understand the upsurge of Idle No More is to understand the deep consternation of decent men and women of diverse ethnic backgrounds who refuse to remain passive and silent as the Stephen Harper government systematically violates the best inheritances of Canadian social democracy. The Idle No More movement begins in Canada but extends to condemnations of the systematic abuses of Indigenous peoples around the world. The original seed from which the Idle No More movement grew starts with an unwillingness to accept the Harper government’s violations of domestic and international law by opting to implement Tom Flanagan’s agenda for Canada rather than adhering to Canada’s constitutional recognition and affirmation of Aboriginal and treaty rights. What would Canada look like if Aboriginal and treaty rights were to be genuinely recognized and affirmed rather than denied and negated as is currently happening through the Harper government’s zeal to push through a large package of statutes incorporating Professor Flanagan’s favoured policies?

Six Nations will not use fluoride in its water By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

When the new Six Nations water treatment plant is up and running by the end of September as promised, it will not be adding fluoride to the water supply, according to Mike Montour, Six Nations director of Public Works. That is good news for many who have become aware of the potential negative effects of the practice and the sketchy evidence that it reduces tooth decay. A wave of information is circulating about the practice of mass-medicating the public which raises a lot of red flags. Even if science proves that the use of fluoride is effective as a cavity preventative for our teeth — which is a matter increasingly under suspicion — the practice of medicating a population is itself one that many are now saying we should be keeping a close eye on. The City of Brantford was the first municipality in North America to begin the practice back in 1945. It was an experiment that the people of Brantford knew noth-

ing about for at least three months after they had been drinking it. At that time, extensive follow up research was to have been done to check the longterm affects, if any, on the users. Apparently, this was never done, or if it was, never made public. But there is a lot more on this subject to consider than a few conspiracy theorists blogging rants. According to a research article published by the Canadian Awareness Network and substantiated elsewhere, Dr. W.L. Hutton, the father of fluoridation, was the head medical officer of health in the first Canadian city to fluoridate its water supply — Brantford, Ontario. Brantford began fluoridation of its water in 1945, under the heavy influence of Dr. Hutton. Hutton was the president of the Eugenics Society of Canada before taking the job as the head medical officer with the City of Brantford. Many other noted city personalities, like Alexander Graham Bell, also belonged to, and held prominent positions of influence within the Eugenics Movement and were openly excited when

Demons are in — Ironmen hold out hope By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

HAPPENINGS

Although last year’s champions, the Ohsweken Demons have been on a slide late in this year’s regular season, but they have accumulated enough points to assure themselves a playoff berth. It’s quite a different story for the Iroquois Ironmen who have two games remaining. They are currently hanging onto a thread of hope to see the post season after making it to the Championship game last year against the Demons, which the Demon’s won. Even after the 15-14 loss to the Demons Friday night at the ILA, the Ironmen still have a mathematical shot at making post season play if they can crawl out of the basement tie with the Barrie Blizzard. They have two chances to do that this coming weekend in the last week of the 2013 regular season. This coming Friday, the Ironmen face the Brampton Inferno in Brampton and they close out the regular season on the road against the Turfdogs, Saturday night. Friday night at the ILA the Demons laid down the gauntlet early in the match, burying the Ironmen in the first 15 minutes. Mike Attwood scored first at 3:37 with a short handed goal to give the Ironmen their only lead in the game, albeit short lived.

Marty Hill answered on the same powerplay at 3:39 before the Demons Wayne VanEvery scored his first and second goals of his 6 goal, 9 point game, at 4:15 and 6:41 respectively. James Mt. Pleasant got in on the feeding frenzy at 6:55 to make it 4-1 for the Demons and VanEvery scored his third at 9:09 to increase that lead to 5-1. The Ironment scored their second goal of the period at 9:25 with Elijah Johns’ marker at 9:25, but Clay Hill kept the Demons attack going with a pair of quick back-to-back goals at 11:45 and 11:54 to make it 7-2. Blue Hill scored for the Ironmen at 13:57 as the first quarter ended with the Demons ahead 7-3. Cody Johnson started the second quarter by converting a Tom Montour and Cory Bomberry setup to make it 9-3, 24 seconds in. Blue Hill scored his second on a powerplay to get that one back for the Ironmen, 28 seconds later from Josh Johnson and Jerome Thompson. Kraig Maracle followed with another Ironmen goal 12 seconds after that. Ian Martin put the Demons back in the drivers seat at the 7 minute mark which VanEvery added to at 9:39 from Tom Montour who then scored at 11:23 from VanEvery and Mar-

ty Hill to make it 11-5 for the Demons. But once again, the Ironmen would not give up as Josh Johnson and Lloyd Chrysler cut the Demons lead to 11-7 at the half. Wenster Green brought the Ironmen even closer at 1:05 of the third quarter, but Martin and VanEvery poked two more holes in the Ironmen’s canoe in response. Jerome Johnson and Josh Johnson battled back to plug those holes at 7:53 and at 11:21, on a powerplay. VanEvery closed out the third quarter with his sixth goal of the game scored at 14:51 from Logan Kane and Chancy Johnson. The Demons led 14-10 when the final quarter began and by 9:28, the Ironmen had capitalized on three powerplay opportunities to draw within one. Delby Powless restored the two goal lead at 10:45. Chris Attwood gave the Ironmen reason to hope when he scored to bring it back to a one goal game at 11:55, but the Ironmen could not find the equalizer. Jerome Thompson led the Ironmen attack with three goals and a pair of assists while Wayne VanEvery recorded a nine point night for the Demons. The Barrie Blizzard lost their weekend games, 14-9 against the Turfdogs and 21-9 against the Niagara Lock Monsters.

Never-say-die Midget A 99‘ers give Sarnia a scare By Jim Windle BRANTFORD The Brantford Midget A 99‘ers players found themselves facing elimination in the Championship round against Sarnia, down 7 points to 3 in the eight point series, heading into Thursday night’s game at the Wayne Gretzky Arena in Brantford. The 99‘ers, with Six Nations’ forward Larry Hill and goaltender Austin Hill (not related), were down 7-1 before defeating Sarnia, in Sarnia the night before to stay alive. “We started down in Sarnia last night (Wednesday) with nine skaters and two goalies,” said coach Tom Jackson. “Then we lost a guy who got hurt. It was seven points to one and everyone had written us off, but these guys haven’t quit all year. They’ve got a great work ethic and we have just a hell of a good team.” Thursday night, the 99‘ers not only stayed alive, they put a little fear into the Sarnia dressing room when they defeated the visitors 3-2 to cut the Sarnia series lead to 7-5. “We had a slow start tonight but we got going with a couple of great saves and big hits and now we are right back in it,” said Jackson. “And Hillie (Larry) got that big goal to get us started.” The two teams met again Saturday night in Sarnia but the 99‘ers lost in a close 6-4 game and the series. Sarnia’s

last goal was into an empty net. In Brantford, Sarnia scored the first goal of the game Thursday night when the puck took a bad bounce at the side of the 99‘ers net and ended up on a Sarnia stick close in with lots of time to find an opening. Sarnia then took a 2-0 lead when the 99’er defense ignored a Sarnia shooter standing alone in front of goalie Austin Hill, and one-timed a cross-crease pass to put the 99‘ers behind the 8 ball. Larry Hill got Brantford going in the second period when he retrieved his own rebound at the side of the Sarnia net and put it in to make it a 2-1 game. Hill’s goal seemed to throw Sarnia into chaos the rest of the period as Brantford continued to press, and not long after Hill’s goal, the 99‘ers made it a new game by scoring the tying goal in a goalmouth scramble in front of the Sarnia net. Sarnia came out for the third period determined to win the series on the road and poured the pressure of the 99‘ers. But Hill was outstanding, stopping several great scoring chances all period to keep his team’s hopes alive. “We’ve got a hell of a goaltender here in Austin, and he’s been in for the last couple of wins and he’s been standing on his head,” said Jackson following the game.

Late in the period, Sarnia ran into a rash of frustration penalties. The 99‘ers almost took the lead when the Sarnia goalie made a stellar glove save on a hard shot that was labeled for the top corner of the net. But Brantford kept the heat on and were rewarded with the game winner on a deflection from a point shot. The Hill boys are playing in Brantford this season to compete at a higher level of the game than they could achieve at Six Nations as they look towards the Jr. drafts. With Brantford announc- Six Nations’ Larry Hill, power forward for the Brantford 99‘ers, cuts in on the Sarnia goal ing a new Jr. B team for next in the Midget A final’s played at the Wayne Gretzky Arena last Thursday night.

(Photo by Jim Windle) home, they are both hoping to catch the attention of the Jr. B general managers or even the Jr. A scouts. But it has also been a rewarding season playing on this team of guys, and both Hill’s are thankful to be part of such a fine club. “It’s been good playing with the 99‘ers this year,” said Larry Hill. “It’s such a great bunch of guys.” Austin chips in, “Everyone loves one another in that dressing room. We’re more like a family than a team. We’ve got guys from Cambridge, Burford, Six Nations, Brantford, and everyone has come together and we’ve formed this team. We have this never-say-die attitude even though we’ve had some Brantford Midget A 99‘ers goalie Austin Hill of Six Nations closes the door on a Sarnia injuries and suspensions this rush in the third period of Thursday night’s 3-2 win over Sarnia.

manager Wray Maracle, they have a big problem now — but it’s the kind of problem any other team might wish they had as well. Here at Six Nations where world class lacrosse talent is in the genes, the Rebels have too many players worthy of a spot on their roster, and that’s just counting the rookies up from the Six Nations minor lacrosse association or trying out from other organizations. Several returning Rebels were asked to sit out so Maracle, Porter and his coaching staff could get a good look

at the new faces. There are others who are presently trying out for a spot on the Jr. A Arrows squad some of whom will be returning to the Rebels fold as well. The Showcase treated fans and team brass of four other OLA Jr. B franchises an opportunity under game conditions to assess and evaluate potential roster players for the upcoming 2013 season.

Students get a break with new alternative learning classroom By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN The Six Nations Youth Lodge, Tsi Tionkwatention A'no:wara Rason:ne) is the site of a brand new alternative learning classroom, although manager of residential services, Alana McDonald, is already working towards making the program a permanent feature. An upstairs loft-style room in the youth lodge is the setting for the new classroom, which started on March 3. The school will go year-round, and can accommodate a total of eight students. It is intended to give students a chance to gather themselves so they can manage their academic lives better, said McDonald. Ultimately “we want to integrate students back into mainstream education.” The classroom blends culture with modern reality. A smart board and eight computers have been installed to

facilitate the learning experience. Students don't have to be staying at the Lodge to participate in the program, but must be clients of Ganohkwasra. The curriculum meets the provincial standards, but is based upon Six Nations culture and tradition said teacher Mike Skye. Skye said his mentor, high school teacher and program designer at Kawenni:io/ Gaweni:yo, Jessica Bomberry, designed the curriculum for the new alternative school. The Youth Lodge and Kawenni:io are partners in the alternative learning program. McDonald said the program, which is in the pilot project phase at present, was created after Ganohkwasra spent three years extensively researching the impact of family violence on education for youth. “All the suspensions, expulsions, lack of initiative in school were all a direct impact of family violence in the home,” she said. “So that's

A steady stream of job seekers trickled in to the Sports Den at the Six Nations Community Hall Tuesday morning. Capital Power was on hand to accept resumes of people interested in working on the Port Dover and Nanticoke Wind Project. The construction partner, a company called 'Graham,' was on hand as well. Kimberly Pigott, senior project coordinator with Graham, told potential employees they will be hiring for work that will start in late spring out near Jarvis. “Right now, we're looking mostly for iron workers,” she told an applicant. “But we will be looking for other skills later.” She said that anyone who missed the recruiting sessions can apply through Grand River Employment and Training. Pictured above are Barry Lohan, from Capital Power (front). Behind him are Sara Beasley (Capital Power) and Kimberly Pigott. (Photograph by Stephanie Dearing).

by the Community Development Trust Fund, but McDonald said she is still looking for funding that would allow her to hire a child and youth worker for the education program. Skye said they would accept money and school supplies. “Every program we have is tied in to our culture,” he said.

“G,” a student participating in the pilot whose name was withheld to protect his privacy, said the program is working for him. “I think it's a great lot better than regular school. It's not like we're having to do everything all at once. We talk to each other. Mike makes the class really fun.”

Alana MacDonald and Mike Skye are heading up an alternative learning pilot for students who have experienced violence in their lives. The program, based on traditional culture, gives the students a chance to get back on their feet emotionally without losing any academic time.

McDonald said the idea is to get them “to focus on their goals and wants in life.” They are taught Reality Therapy Choice Theory, a framework that allows young people to make their own decisions. “It takes the 'do it because' out of the classroom,” said McDonald. The program presently has three students, and their first week of class was spent learning about the Great Law of Peace. Skye said the Great Law encourages people to make choices to benefit themselves, their families and their community. Students earn four high school credits per semester, and Skye said he provides students with an integrated curriculum, where two or more subjects are combined together to give students a more holistic and engaging experience. Those students who are

ready to move back to the mainstream can choose from a number of alternative programs available, including the Turning Point program, offered at Six Nations Polytech by the Grand Erie School Board, GELA or regular high school classes. Youth who live in a violent home environment often fall behind on their studies, end up missing a lot of classes, or get suspended or even expelled. A lack of sleep means they lose “focus and function in the classroom,” said McDonald. “They already have barriers. What are wee going to do about the education of our children?” The pilot project was funded

Iroquois Lodge residents were ready for an invasion of children and their parents for the Easter Egg Hunt held on Friday March 29. They had decorated a doorway in an Easter theme, and hid plastic eggs around the Lodge (inside and outside). Each egg contained a number inside, and the child or adult who had accumulated the most points was awarded a prize basket. At the end of the hunt, 13 baskets had been given away. The tempting window display had to be protected from the younger egg hunters, who were eager to get gathering. Pictured above is 2 ½ year old Martin, who later was awarded a prize basket. (Photograph by Stephanie Dearing).

Before the egg hunt got underway, visitors and residents engaged in a little egg decoration and conversation. Iroquois Lodge resident Jessie Carpenter decorated eggs with her family, which included her granddaughter and great-granddaughters (pictured above). (Photograph by Stephanie Dearing).

CAREERS NORTHERN COLLEGE PARTNERS WITH QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY TIMMINS, ON: Northern College is proud to announce a new partnership with the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. This agreement initiates collaboration between the two institutions and aims at establishing an accredited Mining Engineering Degree program offered at Northern’s Porcupine Campus. Queen’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has a national reputation as a leader in innovative educational initiatives. Through its internationally renowned programs in geological sciences, geological engineering, civil and mining engineering, Queen’s University is known for its commitment to the resource sector. The Robert M. Buchan Department of Mining is one of the largest and most respected mining departments in North America. The Queen’s mining engineering program has a reputation for excellence and its alumni have shaped the Canadian mineral sector for nearly 120 years. “The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is excited about the opportunity to work closely with Northern College to develop what we believe will be an unique mining engineering degree,” said Kimberly Woodhouse, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. “It will allow us to use innovative programming and technology to provide expanded educational opportunities where there is a pressing need for engineers.” Through its world-renowned Haileybury School of Mines, Northern College has been the preeminent mining education provider in northeastern Ontario for over one hundred years. Maintaining close industry relationships has led to cutting-edge programming and hands-on learning opportunities, ensuring graduates are well prepared to enter this in-demand field.  “There is strong demand for mining engineers in northern Ontario, and this trend is likely to continue as the demand for highly skilled trades and technology personnel is expected to soar over the next few decades” said Fred

Gibbons, President of Northern College. “Collaborating to combine our expertise in mining will allow us to offer this degree-granting program

in northern Ontario where the need is greatest and it is a much anticipated addition to post-secondary education in northern Ontario.”

Developing collaborative agreements between postsecondary institutions is consistent with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Uni-

versities requirement that education be delivered with an approach designed to increase collaboration and productivity. In their 2011 Speech from

the Throne, the Ontario Liberals pledged to create 60,000 additional post-secondary spaces and three new undergraduate campuses by 2016.

Thank you

I wish to thank all of those, past and present, who have made my life full and enjoyable. I am lucky to have family, friends and neighbours, many of whom were kind enough to help me celebrate my birthday with a Hawaiian Lu’au on March 16th with lots of laughs. Many nya:wehs to Virginia General – Family Traditions for providing the Lu’au feast and to others who brought potluck dishes. To Wyndot who thoughtfully decorated Polytech. To my friend Brenda who took lots of pictures. And to my children Richard (Rada) and Laurie (Rob) for bringing Hawaii to me – I thought it was Elvis . The Polynesian Dream Dancers really put on a good show.

An appreciation for your help Miigwetch, Nya weh and Thank You to Dreamcatcher for contributing to the purchase of new goalie equipment for Jordan LaForme for the 2012-2013 hockey season. Jordan played for Hagersville Tim’s Tire PeeWee division. Jordan played an awesome season. The team came first in their season, and won their Playdowns to be “PeeWee A Champs”. Jordan’s aspiration is the NHL and with the accomplishments he’s had in the past year, it could be a reality. Jordan is a team player, on the ice and off. Jordan has provided his time as a second goalie to the Hagersville PeeWee Rep team and Hagersville Atom Rep team for their practices. Jordan has offered his time to On Ice Goaltending School as a shooter for the Six Nations Minor Hockey goalie clinics. Jordan even stood in for a goalie for the Hagersville Women’s Recreational League. He spends hours shooting on net practicing his shots even though he is a goalie. Jordan is a mentor to his niece and best friend Drailyn.

Thank you Thank you to the Dreamcatcher Fund for supporting Holly, Brett and Jacob LaForme’s 2012-2013 hockey season.
