Rebels perfect season

The back-to-back Founders Cup winning Six Nations Rebels took another step towards a three-peat of that honour when they finished the 2013 regular season with a perfect 20-0 record by defeating the St. Catharines Spartans in the last game of the schedule last Wednesday. They went on to sweep the Brampton Excelsiors in two straight games and now await a quarterfinal matchup. It is the second time the Rebels put up a perfect Jr. B season. They did it in 2010 as well. They lost only one game in 2011, and two games in 2012. (Photo by Jim Windle)

Possible resolution close for Ahmed family By Stephanie Dearing BRANT COUNTY It's been a long wait for the Ahmed family, who had purchased property on Oxbow Road with the intention of building their dream home. Excavation for the foundation of that home in early 2012 unearthed the remains of what was later determined to be a person of Aboriginal ancestry, putting a sudden end to the dream. Now that Six Nations of the Grand and the Mississaugas of New Credit have considered the options and given their recommendations on the matter, the Ahmeds are hopeful that a resolution is around the corner. A Six Nations representative outlined the recommendations in a letter to Ontario's

Cemeteries Registrar, Michael D'Mello last month. A copy of the letter was provided to Brant County council. The letter states both nations are agreeable to creating a 5 metre by 5 metre cemetery where the bones of two people had long ago been buried. During a telephone interview, Habiba said she and her husband hope to be able to build on the lot they purchased in 2011, and said they were fairly certain no other remains would be found on the lot. “The dream is gone,” Habiba said, referring to the house the family had planned to build. While agreeable to a land swap, Habiba didn't think Brant County would offer them land. “Realistically,” Habiba said, “it's not a solution.” She said the only way for the fam-

ily to move forward would be to build a home on a different part of the lot on Oxbow Road. The family has been carrying two mortgages. Initially the Ahmeds were to pay for the required archeological assessment, but after the family said they couldn't cover the cost, Ontario stepped in to help. The Haudenosaunee Development Institute (HDI), which does not have any official status in the negotiations, has already made it clear they will not allow any development on the lot purchased by the Ahmed family. HDI was present at 46 Oxbow Road shortly after the remains were accidentally uncovered, and have kept involved in the matter. Earlier this year HDI's interim executive director, Hazel Hill, said HDI would

not allow the burial site to be disturbed. The Ahmeds have offered to fence the Aboriginal Cemetery and say they will put up the sign Six Nations and New Credit want posted. They have also offered, in a letter written to Brant County, to maintain the cemetery grounds. So far, no-one has offered the Ahmeds any compensation for the loss that resulted following the accidental finding of the burial site. Both Six Nations and New Credit say Brant County is responsible, and should compensate the family or give them an alternative piece of land. For its part, Brant County council has committed to work with various municipal, provincial and federal governmental agencies, as well as the Ahmeds, to find a solution to the situation – a suggestion made by Brant MP Dave Levac earlier this year. “The Ahmeds are now faced with paying for a piece of land that

they can neither use or sell,” said Levac. In a letter written in late June, the Ahmeds asked Brant County council for permission to build on 46 Oxbow Road. “There is a possibility that our nightmare is coming to an end and a there is a small chance that we may have the go ahead to build pending on agreements from all parties involved,” wrote Habiba. “If all negotiations do go through and we do get the go ahead to build we are requesting the building department at the County of Brant to consider our plea.” According to Habiba, the next step in the process is the signing of the site disposition, the agreement between all concerned parties about what will happen to the burial place, which was declared an Aboriginal cemetery by Ontario's Cemetery Registrar Michael D'Mello in January. If all parties are in agreement about the site, the very next step will be to survey the cem-

etery and register it with Ontario. An archeological assessment determined the remains uncovered were that of an elderly Native man and an elderly Native woman. It is believed the two were buried between 150 to 200 years ago. While believed to be of Aboriginal descent, the cultural origins of the couple have not been determined, which is why both Six Nations and New Credit have been involved in the site disposition process. If the site disposition agreement is settled as amicably as the Ahmed families want, the family hopes to be able to start construction on a home on 46 Oxbow Road sometime next year. “Six Nations and New Credit are trying to come up with a win-win solution for everybody,” said Habiba. She said she and her family are seeking a peaceful agreement “that would respect everybody.”

After months of peace in Caledonia, Gary McHale and his small band of followers have once again surfaced creating problems for the OPP and Six Nations business owners at the One Stop Smoke Shop on Highway #6 at Argyle Street. McHale followers marched in protest of the opening of a new Six Nations owned Burger and Fries stand at the rear of the smoke shop location which they claim is “illegal”. They were met by a good sized gathering of Six Nations land protecters who refused to allow the protesters onto the property. The OPP kept the two sides apart and eventually McHale and his 8 or 9 followers left after a few short, high volume “conversations”. No one was arrested or charged. (Photo by Jim Windle)

Six Nations bingo hall generating money for community By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN

With gaming – including bingo – on the decline in Canada, Six Nation's head of Economic Development is not an advocate for building a resort hotel, a project that appears to be a favourite idea of the Elected Chief, based on the frequency of his references to building such a facility. Matt Jamieson advised the July 2 meeting of council's Committee of the Whole that he could not recommend the construction of a new building for gaming or tourism. Jamieson should know – he is left dealing with a decision made by Elected Council in 2007 to build the new bingo hall, a decision that currently costs Six Nations nearly $1 million a year. There is still $5.514 million owning on the money Six Nations borrowed from the Royal Bank of Canada. The building, Jamieson said, cost $9 million to build. Council kicked in $2.5 million and the balance was borrowed. While Jamieson said the loan was a burden for the operation, the debt to profit ratio was one of the lower

numbers Jamieson presented to the Committee, sitting at only three percent of the revenue the bingo hall will generate this year. But when that loan is applied to the square footage of the hall, “It's more than $16 per square foot,” Jamieson said. “It puts us at a disadvantage in the market place, where others are leasing at $10 per square foot.” The disadvantage is unclear, given that Six Nations owns and operates all facets of the bingo operation. However, Jamieson is negotiating with the bank to try to get a lower interest rate on the loan, and said he would be back with a package when things are in place. While Jamieson said the loan was “a real impediment to operations,” the biggest stand-out number on his projected operating expenses for 2013-2014 was the $13,527,521 prize money that he anticipates will be paid out. “We have to pay pretty aggressive prize boards,” Jamieson said, and said the boards were fixed, whereas Ontario Lottery and Gaming paramutuel bases its prizes on the

number of people playing. “Head count is the absolute make or break for bingo,” he said. “We need 127 people at minimum for the matinee,” and explained the more people that play bingo, the more profit the bingo hall generates. But if less people show up to play, the bingo hall loses money. “It comes down to weather,” said Jamieson. Food service is a problematic issue for the bingo hall and Jamieson said he will ultimately consider privatizing the food operations if the service does not become profitable quickly. Jamieson said the food costs are too high, and the kitchen is not set up to facilitate large numbers of people at one time. One solution he is following up on is the creation of a buffet. “Should we even be in the bingo business anymore,” asked District Five Councillor Bob Johnson. “Bingo is a dying game,” was Jamieson's bottom line. He explained he had attended the Canadian Gaming Summit in Montreal last month. “No one there was talking about building a structure. They were all talking about online

The Six Nations Bingo Hall continues to generate revenue for the community despite problems. (Photograph by Stephanie Dearing). gaming.” The people who frequent the Six Nations bingo hall are older, Jamieson said. “The average age of a player is 57 years old. The highest spenders are 65 year old. They won't be around much longer.” Jamieson said younger people are attracted to online or video gaming. Despite all that, Jamieson

said the bingo hall has an annual goal of generating nearly $21 million in gross revenue, and that objective is usually achieved. Sponsors, which are those organizations that apply to the Six Nations Gaming Commission to fund-raise at the bingo hall, and Six Nations administration fees eat up the balance of the profits generated by the

operation. The sponsors receive 40 percent of the profits, projected to be $511,462 this year; while Six Nations takes $620,466 in fees, leaving the bingo hall with $146,726 in retained earnings. Jamieson said he had budgeted $50,000 for repairs to the indoor air system and other maintenance for the hall.

OFNLP dispute over millions goes to arbitration By Stephanie Dearing TORONTO

A $35,000,000 fight is going to arbitration after an Ontario Superior Court judge ruled that is the first step to take in a dispute between the Ontario First Nation Limited Partnership (OFNLP) and Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG). “In 2008 the province and OLG entered into the Gaming Revenue Sharing and Financial Agreement with OFNLP on behalf of all First Nations in Ontario except Rama,” wrote one of the OFNLP lawyers, James Caskey in an email. That agreement came into effect on March 31, 2011. At issue is $35 million that had been set aside into two different reserve funds from Casino Rama profits. OFNLP says Casino Rama is profitable and the money is not needed to be held in reserve, and instead should have been distributed to First Nations. The agreement, said Caskey, allows for a dispute resolution process. Initially OFNLP attempted to resolve

the issue through mediation, but “mediation failed and there was no reason to believe a remedy could be obtained without court action.” OFNLP took the step of suing Ontario Lottery and Gaming, which resulted in a decision by Justice J. Morgan to send the two parties to arbitration. The decision was issued in late June. “The Province and OLG took the position that an arbitration was mandatory,” Caskey explained. “They brought a Motion to have the issue determined. Justice Morgan essentially said it was up to an arbitrator to decide if the issues were capable of being resolved by arbitration or litigation. As a consequence we must now appoint an arbitrator to decide if the issues are arbitral.” Justice Morgan also ordered OFNLP to pay a total of $26,610, with $18,400 to the Crown and $8,219 to OLG for costs. “In the circumstances, we would have expected the costs to have been reserved to that person. But costs are always in the

discretion of the Judge so we simply have to live with the result and hope to recover them when we are successful in recovering the $35 million in dispute,” said Caskey. Caskey said the two parties would chose an arbitrator from lists created by both sides. “There are almost always names in common,” he wrote. The lawyer anticipated that an arbitrator would be chosen over the next 30 days. The arbitration process normally takes about one year, “but it always depends on the availability of all concerned.” If the arbitrator decides OFNLP was “correct that we had the choice to litigate, and if our clients instruct us to resume the litigation, the time line will be much longer and dependent on the Court process,” said Caskey, adding it could take two years to resolve the matter through court. The OFNLP was established in 2008 to distribute gaming funds given by the Province of Ontario to First Nations partners. Initially First Nations received mon-

ey from Casino Rama revenues, but in 2011, a revised agreement with the OLG came into effect, and First Nation partners now receive

a share (1.7 percent) from all of Ontario's gaming revenues. Attempts by Tekawennake to reach OFNLP president

Steve Williams were not successful. Caskey said he had been authorized by the OFNLP to speak for the organization on the matter.

First year students from Grand River Employment and Training’s horticulture program were learning how to build a stone fence Thursday on Highway 54 at the front of the Kaynasse site, under the tutelage of instructor Joe Pfeiffer of Mohawk college. “In class they had some practical training explaining how and why they are building it with this kind of a base,” he said. “By the time we’re all finished here, they will have enough skill where they can build a wall on their own.

Ontario takes steps to protect honey bees By Stephanie Dearing TORONTO

Ontario wants to protect the health of honey bees, a key pollinator in the province. The Ministry of Agriculture and Food announced Tuesday it will establish a Bee Health Working Group with a goal of preventing bee deaths. Honey bees in Ontario and Quebec had a hard time last year, with over 5,000 colonies in Ontario alone dying in 2012. Beekeepers from both provinces suspected corn and soy crops treated with neonicotinoids was the culprit. “Neonicotinoids are systemic pesticides that are absorbed into plant tissues,” said the beekeepers in a press release. That finding was supported by a study conducted by Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), which looked into the 2012 bee deaths. Laboratory tests were conducted to determine the role pesticides might have played in the loss of the bees. The Agency found two neonicotinoids at high levels (70 percent) in the bees. While other pesticides were also detected, PMRA said, “The information evaluated suggests that planting of corn seeds treated with the nitro guanidine insecticides clothianidin and/or thiamethoxam contributed to

the majority of the bee mortalities that occurred in corn growing regions of Ontario and Quebec in spring 2012.” The findings have prompted the PMRA to re-evaluate neonicotinoid pesticides. While the pesticides are under review, the Agency has issued best management practices for farmers in an effort to avoid devastating losses of bees. The Agency cautions farmers, “Some insecticides, such as nitro-guanidine neonicotinoids, may be toxic to pollinators.” Despite that, the Ontario Beekeepers Association and their Quebec counterparts, Fédération des apiculteurs du Québec are calling for a ban of the pesticides in both provinces, encouraged by the neonicotinoid ban enacted by the European Union earlier this year. Bayer Crop Sciences, one of the makers of neonicotinoid pesticides, recently opened a North American Bee Care Centre in North Carolina, U.S.A. In a press release announcing the initiative, Bayer said the centre will conduct research with a goal of “ensuring the health of colonies and honey bees.” Bayer said the European Union ban “distracts attention away from the real issues surrounding poor bee health.” Competitor Sygenta has reacted to the EU ban by saying

if seeds haven't been treated with neonicotinoid pesticides, crop yields will fall by up to 40 percent, and cost millions of Euros and thousands of jobs. “When used properly the technology does not damage bee populations,” Sygenta said in a statement. While Ontario has not said anything about a potential ban of neonicotinoid pesticides, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, which is headed up by Premier Kath-

leen Wynne, is moving fast. The first meeting of the Bee Health Working Group is to take place this month. “The creation of this working group is a vital step in our efforts to protect the environment and Ontario's agri-food sector,” said Wynne. “We look forward to working together to find solutions that will support a thriving, healthy bee population that will in turn support a strong, successful agri-food sector.”

Council considers contentious solution for unauthorized dumping By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN

While Elected Council has decided to look into the feasibility of having its own in-house legal counsel, the Tuesday morning meeting of it's Committee of the Whole saw councillors eschewing hiring legal counsel to create bylaws and other legal mechanisms that council could use to deal with the dumping of unwanted waste such as roofing material on the territory. Instead, the Committee opted for creating a list of properties where construction type-waste is being dumped. The Committee intends to write letters to the property owners asking them to clean up the waste, advising the property owners that Elected Council may place a lien on the home or property if the property owner does not comply with the request. Head of the Public Works Department, Mike Montour, had been asked to come to the Committee to present information from a report created 13 years ago in response to the same problem. Back then, following community consultation, the recommendation was to hire a lawyer to write bylaws that would be

enforceable, and to give Six Nations Elected Council other legal mechanisms to help stop the practice. Montour advised council to take that recommendation. “It's up to this council,” said District Six Councillor Dave Hill, who has doggedly pushed to have solutions to the issue over this past year. Hill is one of the councillors who has advocated for placing a lien on the property. The decision, which has to be reaffirmed by Elected Council, was contentious. “I don't agree with a lien,” said District Two Councillor Carl Hill. He said there are constituents in his district who complain about people dumping unwanted waste on their property. “What if they don't have money to clean up,” he asked. “People are coming at night and dumping. Who will pay?” The motion was carried, but after it passed, District Three Councillor Roger Jonathan said he understood there are two different sets of bylaws in existence that deal with unauthorized dumping. He recommended that be addressed by staff. Elected Council still has to ratify the decision to write letters to property owners.

George Beaver’s quiet words will last forever By James Windle Editor The passing of George Beaver this week was sad news for us all here at the Tekawennake. George was a great friend of Tekawennake and a much loved and valued lunch partner for this reporter in particular. He was a treasure trove of community information and personal accounts of historic events and the more mundane day to day world he lived in and observed throughout his 82 year walk here on earth. You can’t be a great teacher unless you are a great student and George was a fine student of life here at Six Nations. If he didn’t teach most of today’s grandparents in those old numbered one room classrooms before today’s modern schools were built, he probably coached your grandmother in women’s softball. George’s quiet voice and methodical choice of words led him to chronicle many important facets of everyday life at Six Nations Reserve #40 in the form of books and his column which ran regularly in the Brantford Expositor until Sun Media Group took that paper over and canceled him. But his intimate knowledge of the community and his ability to take Six Nations of the Grand River people back to a simpler time is a gold deposit that will be mined for generations to come. That’s the wonderful thing about words on a page. His articles and books still have the ability to freeze frame a moment in time in the lives of the people of Six Nations and always will. Through his eyes and his pen, George Beaver has become immortal. We published a special feature some time ago recounting the 1959 attempted ouster of the Elected Band Council by traditional members of the community. In researching for this feature piece, we discovered that behind George’s quiet and unassuming personality was a brave man who was unafraid to speak his mind, even if it was unpopular. We came across a wonderful picture from that time of him sitting in a chair at the Old Council House being grilled by the late Mad Bear Anderson for his letter to the Brantford Expositor denouncing the take over. It was volatile times during those days and the law was taken into the hands of a citizen police force. Beaver was arrested and detained until he could face “trial” by Mad Bear and other leaders of the uprising. He was eventually released after he recanted. I asked George if he regretted what he had done. He honestly admitted that in 1959, he was not as in tune with his own political history as he could have been and that the Expositor letter expressed what he thought at that time with the knowledge he had. Looking back, he said he would never have written it, knowing what he later came to understand. This is an example of George’s honesty and his personal integrity in being able to admit when he was ill-informed and add new knowledge to his life and move on that much the wiser. The thing about talking with George Beaver, even over lunch, was to make sure to set aside a good amount of time, because he would give you every minute detail no matter what the topic was. Many a time his chili and toast got cold while he explained, in the most intimate of detail, some facet of Six Nations of life as he knew it. In this reporter’s learning experience here at Six Nations over the past 11-12 years, an eclectic group of people have become my teachers, like, Chief Arnie General, the late Mona Staats, Phil Monture, Dick Hill, Jan Longboat, Bill Squire, Rick Hill, Michael Doxtator, Rudy Longboat, Keith Jamieson, Jock Hill and George Beaver — and so many others. They gave me my early Haudenosaunee education and continue to enrich my knowledge and understanding of a culture and a people vastly different from my own.

SECOND CLASS MAIL - REGISTRATION NO. 0490849

George Beaver charged for treason -1959 By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS From a feature pull out section first published in the Tekawennake News of March 11th 2009, on the 50th anniversary of the 1959 revolution. George Beaver was a young teacher at Six Nations in 1959. By his latter admission, he knew very little about the history of his own people and the political landscape of those days. He was just a teacher. He just wanted to go to work and help educate Six Nations and New Credit children in the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic to help them interface with the outside world to earn a decent living as adults. Steeped in white man’s education, which excluded any reference to Six Nations aside from a novel side note, and proud of his teaching degree, all of this upheaval was too much for him to understand and seemed an embarrassment to him, so he spoke out against it all in the Brantford Expositor by way of a letter to the editor. He wanted to set a few things straight. The letter, entitled, “How Many Support The Hereditary Chiefs?”(published below) ran March 6, 1959, and immediately made him an “enemy of the state” as it were, to the newly proclaimed restored government of Six Nations. He described many of those reported involved with the take-over as curious onlookers who did not participate in any way. He referred to those who did as “malcontents”. This brought immediate pressure on Beaver from the new Iroquois Police and its chief, Ross Powless. Beaver was arrested, detained, and faced charges of treason under the new Iroquois judicial system. He was put on trial, and found guilty. Under Confederacy law, treason was punishable by two warnings and then by exile from the reserve. He was ordered not to repeat this offence, released and returned to his classroom, none the worse for wear. “I was never really afraid of anything happening to me,” said Beaver looking back. “I knew most of the guys involved and played basketball with many of them. I just stated my opinion as it was at that time. I really didn’t know very much about what was going on. Our history was never taught in school and a lot of people, like me, had become used to the elected system. I have come 180 degrees on that opinion since then I can tell you.” Continued on page 7

TEKAWENNAKE

George Beaver charged for treason -1959 Continued from page 6 Looking back, Beaver now understands a lot more of what was going on then, and can see the significance of taking back the Council House which was the recognized seat of government at Six Nations. Even during Beaver’s trial he began to understand more than he did when he wrote the letter that caused him so much concern. He had opportunity to speak with Mad Bear during that time and soon gained an understanding of what was going on, and more importantly, why. Mad Bear Anderson sent a runner to ask Beaver to come to the Council House one evening during the occupation to sign a paper promising he would not write another letter to the editor, which was a condition of his release. Ironic when you consider he has been a contributing columnist to the Expositor for many years since then. Beaver knew it was only a media photo-op, but he complied with Anderson’s request and freely signed the paper for the television and newspaper cameras. “Mad Bear really knew how to use the media,” Beaver recalls. Although Beaver himself saw it all as no big deal, his arrest was used as a lightning rod by politicians, the RCMP and the media for police action against the revolt. “I had no animosity at all for any of the men involved in my arrest, then or now,” says Beaver. Beaver began listening closer and paying more attention to what was going on around him with so many land sales taking place without the people’s input or the involvement of the Confederacy. It was around that time the Band Council had sold off a good sized piece of the Glebe Land to Brantford for the construction of Pauline Johnson High School and what became Gambles Department store, most recently the old Canadian Tire plaza. There was also a deal struck with Cockshutt’s for more land for expansion of the foundry. Once Beaver had his eyes opened, he could no longer ignore what he saw and soon

became a supporter of the Confederacy. “Now here we are 50 years later and it’s coming around again,” says Beaver. “The same issues, the same government stance. They

Rebels record 2nd perfect 20-0 season By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

The dynasty of the Six Nations Jr. B Rebels continues to be the benchmark for all 26 teams in the OLA Jr. B loop. In 2009, the Rebels finished the regular season with with 27 points, in 2010 they ended the regular season with a perfect 20-0, in 2011 they only lost one game for 38 points eventually winning the Founders Cup; last year they were 18-2 for 36 points and repeated as the Founders Cup Champs, and in 2013, they chalked up their second perfect season and are very strong favourites to win an unprecedented third Founders Cups in a row. But rookie Rebels coach and former Rebel, Murray Porter Jr., is taking nothing for granted. “Now that that’s done (perfect season), we have to get ready for the real season (playoffs),” he said after the game Wednesday night. The Six Nations Rebels 20-0 record was secured after a 18-3 win over the St Catharines Spartans in a game that meant nothing to the either team, relative to their final standings. It was obvious Wednesday

night that the visiting third place St. Catharines Spartans were saving themselves for the playoffs as they put up very little resistance against the defending Founders Cup Champions. The only real questions were, will the Rebels earn their perfect season? After that had become obvious, whether goaltender Chase Martin would register a perfect game as well and earn a very rare lacrosse shut-out. Both teams played many of their lesser known names to put more game time under their belts with the playoffs only days away at that time. Eleven Rebels put balls in the net as they worked on their passing plays as if it were an exhibition game. Six Nations outshot the Spartans 60-32. Danton Miller scored two while Elvin Maracle, Mitch Green, Dallas John, and Mitch Green added singles to end the first period with the Rebels leading 6-0. Ian Martin and Kyle Isaacs made it 8-0 by 8:08 of the second period. But with AP player Ryse Tansley in the box for roughing, Martin’s shutout hopes ended when Danny Blocho scored St. Catharines’ first goal at 8:22.

Rebel’s rookie Kessler Doolittle scored late in the third period in Wednesday’s 18-3 win to end their perfect 20-0 season, the second time they have done so in the past 4 years. (Photo by Jim Windle) With that out of the way, Mitch Green scored back-toback goals at 11:37 and 17:01 to complete the second frame with the Rebels ahead 10-1. It was more of the same in the third as Tyler Longboat, Frank Brown, Jacob Bomberry (2G), and Kyle Isaacs fattened their statistics with goals. The Spartans scored

two more before Kessler Doolittle and Dallas John ended the game 18-3 and the regular season. Rebels’ captain Ian Martin earned the league scoring title with 32 goals and 98 assists for 130 points in 20 games played. The tandem of Doug Jamieson and Chace Martin

were one and two in the goaltending department. In special teams, Six Nations power play unit earned top league honours for their potent 43.75% power play success. The penalty killers scored an unheard of 46 shorthand goals this season, 11 of them scored by rookie Bo Henhawk who finished

Brampton an annoyance, not an opponent By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

The Brampton Excelsiors proved to be more of an annoyance than worthy opponent for the Six Nations Rebels in the first round of the 2013 OLA Jr. B playoffs. The Rebels dismantled the Excelsiors 17-5 Saturday night in Brampton after Friday’s 15-5 walk-over at the ILA to take the best-of-three series in two straight penalty filled games. Saturday night, Rebels coach Murray Porter was determined just to get this ugly series over quickly without any of his players getting hurt nor suspended along the way. It was all but over after the first period in Brampton after the visiting Rebels easily built up a 7-1 first period lead. It was more of the same in the second which ended with the Rebels leading 14-4. In the third the Rebels just tried to keep possession and try not to get anyone hurt as they added three more in the third to get rid of the Excelsiors, 17-5. Ian Martin scored four goals and two assists to lead the Rebels charge. Jesse Johnson scored once but assisted on six for a seven point game. Kyle Isaacs (1G,5A), Dallas John (3G,2A), Austin Staats (3G), Danton Miller (1G,5A) also contributed with multiple points. In fact 14 Rebels earned points in the easy win while Doug Jamieson registered the “W” in the Rebels goal, saving 41 of the 46 shots he faced. That was another important statistic of this series as Jamieson stood rock solid even when Brampton got close enough to shoot. Their Quarterfinal matchup has not been determined at this point. Game #1 SIX NATIONS REBELS 15 BRAMPTON EXCELSIORS 5 There seemed to be two games going on Friday night at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena in Game #1 of Round #1 of the 2013 Jr. B Playoffs. The first being the game most people came to see, but then there was the game the referees were watching. Both benches were equally upset right from the first period at what they felt was poor officiating. As what usually happens in games of this

nature, frustration is compounded and fights break out resulting in even more chaos. But after both coaches had screamed themselves hoarse and the final buzzer was sounded, the Six Nations Rebels had gone up one game to none against the Brampton Excelsiors in the best of three series with a 15-5 final score. There really was no contest as the regular season 20-0 Champions went to 21-0, including playoffs. It was all Rebels in the first period after Frank Brown laid down the gauntlet only 23 seconds into the game with his goal, assisted by Danton Miller and Kyle Isaacs. Mitch Green was next in line at 1:23 making it 2-0 before many fans even got into the building. Captain Ian Martin made it 3-0 followed by a pair of goals scored by Dallas John. With the clock just about run out, the Rebels were caught with Chace Martin out of the net. Brampton’s Ryan Huggins noticed and threw a floor length strike into the empty net with one second on the clock. The teams were playing 3 on 3 to begin the second period due to a series of “unsportsmanlike conduct” penalties assessed at 19:52 of the first. Referees Stephen Ellis and Ryan Wilson filled both penalty boxes with no less than seven players receiving nine Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalties on the same whistle. The game was now officially out of control. Between periods Brampton coaching staff could be heard shouting down the hall at the referees as they made their way to the dressing room. The Rebels quickly shook all that off between periods and picked up from where they began, scoring two more early second period goals. Jacob Bomberry made it 6-1 at 26 seconds and Kyle Isaac added another at 1:46, unassisted. Brampton scored on a powerplay to make it 7-2. The goal seemed to set off rookie Daniel Bo Henhawk who stole a ball right out of a Brampton player’s stick, sped down floor and found Ian Martin alone in front of the Excelsiors goal. Thirty seconds later Danton Miller scored before Henhawk scored two beauties in a row, the first shorthanded, and unassisted, the second at 9:28 also unassisted. Brampton got two goals

(Photo by Jim Windle) back before the end of the period and Six Nations’ Green added a goal at 14:46 to make it 12-4 with 20 minutes left. With both referees struggling to keep up with this level of lacrosse, tempers were frayed on both teams and the final 20 minutes took more than 45 minutes to play due to 32 penalties assessed and much confusion at the time keeper/official scorekeepers bench. Between the long delays and spirits of lacrosse action, the Rebels managed three more goals from Isaacs, Martin and John. Brampton scored to begin the third making the final score, 15-5, and both coaches fuming. “I’ve never seen anything

like it,” said Rebels assistant coach Cam Bomberry. “I haven’t seen these refs all year. Not a very good time to send some new refs into the playoffs. They can’t keep up with the play or make the correct calls. When you start to blow make-up calls for the ones you missed, that’s when you lose control.” Head coach Murray Porter expressed a similar critique. “That was a debacle,” he said. “We had eight guys left on the bench when the game finished. The second period alone took almost an hour. That’s no good for the fans either.” Both teams will be watching to see what suspensions might be coming down from the OLA brass after Game #1.

Arrows Express keep rolling despite a little rust By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

The second place Burlington Chiefs could overtake the Six Nations Arrows Express and finish the season as league leaders, but to do so it would take both a total collapse by the 15-3 Arrows (30 pts) and two wins in a row for the 134-1 Burlington Chiefs (27 pts) over the last 2 games of the regular season. The Six Nations Arrows Express were both playing with and against the Kitchener-Waterloo Braves last Thursday at the Waterloo Rec Centre. The Arrows opened the scoring with goals scored by former Toronto Beaches goal scorer Luc Magnan whom the Arrows acquired along with Jack Donnelly on the trade deadline. Wenster Green made it 2-0, but they teased the Braves by allowing two goals to end the first period 2-2 and with the Braves feeling pretty good

about themselves. But Johnny Powless and Josh Johnson took over in the second period. First, it was Powless from Johnson and Brendan Bomberry, then Johnson from Bomberry and Powless, Powless from Johnson and Jordan Durston made it 5-2. It was Johnson’s turn next as he added another from Bomberry, which was followed by another goal by Powless making it 7-2 with a minute remaining in the period. KW’s Jay Lindsay scored the last goal for the Braves at 19:04. With the game well in hand the Arrows began working on their ball control and defense in the third period with Joel Shepley scoring Six Nations last goal of the game and the only goal of the period to take the two points via an 8-3 win. The two teams met again on Sunday at the ILA, but it was a much different game in which the Arrows Express were very fortunate to come

up with an 14-13 overtime win. The Arrows looked disinterested and were certainly not sharp while the 8th place Braves played with dogged determination not to drop two in a row to the Arrows. They came very close to making that happen. After getting off to a 6-3 start in the first period on goals by Brendan Bomberry, Shane Simpson, Ian Martin, Joel Shipley, Haodais Maracle and Josh Johnson, the Arrows passing and shooting became erratic and at times they were being out muscled and out played by the Braves. Line changes and play making got out of synch and the entire team seemed to be bored with the entire affair. Bomberry and Josh Johnson opened the second period making it an 8-3 game to that point. But the Braves would not lay down and fought back in the second period outscoring the Arrows 6-4 to finish the second period with KW

only one goal behind and carrying all of the momentum. Johnson scored at 7:57 of the third frame to restore a two goal edge. Braves’ Davis Prince scored unassisted at 9:02 and distracted the Arrows further from the game by turning on the physical game, resulting in several undisciplined Arrows’ retaliation penalties. Kyle Jackson took advantage of the Arrows’ lethargic performance and tied the game at 16:41 sending the game into an extra 10 minute period. Johnny Powless gave the Arrows the lead at 2:41 on a powerplay but KW’s Dhane Smith responded at 4:42. Shane Simpson scored unassisted for the Arrows at 8:09 and Jack Donnelly scored what would stand as the winning goal at 9:02. Braves scored their 13th goal with 8 seconds remaining, but not enough time to tie. All things considered, the Arrows were very lucky to

Arrows #33, Ian Martin, scored two goals and assisted on four more to help the Arrows Express get past the Kitchener-Waterloo Braves, Sunday night at the ILA. (Photo by Jim Windle) have won the game despite the 15 point differential between the two teams. The first place Arrows hope to regain their edge before Thursday night when the

Toronto Beaches are at the ILA and Friday when the Arrows close the regular season schedule against the Mississauga Tomahawks, in Mississauga.

Chiefs in firm possession of first place By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

The first place Six Nations Chiefs put a little more distance between themselves and the rest of the Major Series teams with two more wins this week with a 10-6 victory over the third place Brooklin Redmen at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena, Saturday night. The Redmen didn’t even show up until the second period as the powerful Chiefs dug a 6-0 hole for the visitors in the first period with goals, in order, by Roger Vyse, Alex Hill, Colin Doyle, Hill again, Rodd Squire and Dan Coates. The Chiefs relaxed a bit too early allowing the Redmen into the game in the sec-

ond period but they were still leading 7-3 after 40 minutes of play. Doyle scored for Six Nations. Each team scored three in the third, but the 6-0 first period proved to be too much for Brooklin to overcome. Third period Chiefs goals were scored by Billy Dee Smith, Colin Boucher and Cody Jamieson. Goalie Evan Kirk contributed both a solid performance stopping Brooklin shots but two assists to boot. The Chiefs were in Kitchener-Waterloo Tuesday night, and will return to the ILA Saturday, July 13th at 7 p.m. to tangle with the second place Peterborough Lakers in a game that could be very important when the regular

season ends July 29th, with another Tuesday night game in KW with the Kodiaks, July 9th. CHIEFS 15 BRAMPTON 7

Last Thursday night, July 4, the Major Series Brampton Excelsiors fell to the powerful Chiefs 15-7 at the ILA. Jesse Gamble got things going at the 10 minute mark of the first period with an unassisted effort. Brampton reacted with two quick goals, one of them shorthanded, but the Chiefs closed the period with goals by Kasey Beirnes and Cody Jamieson. Earning assists were Marty Hill, Roger Vyse with two, and Colin Doyle.

As he has done most of the season, Jamieson caught the opponents off balance with a quick attack right off the second period face-off, scoring at 1:31 from Doyle and Alex Hill. Brampton responded with a short hander by Mike Hominuk at 6:42, but the Chiefs poured on the heat with goals by Rodd Squire at 7:33, Corey Bomberry at 8:05, Jesse Gamble at 10:45 and two by Colin Doyle before Ethan O’Connor scored Brampton’s 4th goal to end the second period with the Chiefs leading 9-4. Jamieson once again caught the Excelsiors off guard with a quick goal at 24 seconds Kasey Beirnes at 3:09, Alex ed goals after that with Marty of the final frame. That was Hill at 7:10 and David Brock Hill, and Jamieson creating followed by goals scored by at 7:55. The two teams trad- the final 15-7 score.

Six Nations Rivermen fulfilling their promise By Jim Windle SIX NATIONS

When the new Six Nations Rivermen announced their arrival on the OLA Sr. B circuit earlier this year, general manager Cap Bomberry and coach Stew Montour promised a contender in their inaugural season. They delivered on that promise with a solid season, finishing in a strong second place behind the league leading St. Catharines Saints. The Rivermen delivered a

message to the league leaders on their last day of the regular season Sunday night with a 9-5 victory at the Gaylord Powless Arena, after taking down the Oakville Titans 1410 Friday night in Oakville. The Six Nations Rivermen completed their inaugural first regular season in the OLA Sr.B Sunday evening at the Gaylord Powless Arena, with a possible precursor to the Sr. B championship against the St. Catharines Saints. The Rivermen kept their

winnings streak alive in Oakville Friday night with a 14-10 road win over the Titans, led by a seven goal performance by Wayne VanEvery who accounted for half of the Rivermen’s output. VanEvery notched his first two for Six Nations at 2:38, and a short hander at 4:52. Delby Powless and Cody Johnson assisted on the first one, and Mike Miller and Chris Courtney earned assists on the second. Oakville’s Mike Gillan

scored at 11:48 to end the first period with the Rivermen holding a 2-1 lead. Six Nations turned up the power in the second period scoring the first four goals, starting with Holden Vyse at 32 seconds, followed by Wayne VanEvery at 1:47 from Powless, Justin Gibson from VanEvery and Chancey Johnson at 5:47, and Wayne VanEvery again at 6:57 from Isaiah Kicknosway and Dan Elliott. With the score 6-1, the Titans scored two goals a little

more than two minutes apart before Elliott and Brock Boyle connected at 11:44 and 17:30 respectively. Jeff Sehl ended the period for Oakville to send the teams to the dressing room with Six Nations leading 8-4, and one period remaining. The third period was all offence as each team scored six goals. Cory Bomberry, Holden Vyse, Mike Miller and three third period goals by VanEvery scored for Six Nations in the 14-10 final score.

It was a closely contested match between two very similar teams, but in the end the Rivermen fire power proved to be too much for the Saints. Andrew Porter scored the first two goals of the game for the Saints, but Six Nations goalie Angus Goodleaf seemed to give his head a shake after the Saints second goal and held the fort while Holden Vyse, Stu Hill, Isaiah Kicknosway and Vyse again, went to work to build a 4-2 Continued on page 16

Surprise gift graces Chiefswood Museum By Stephanie Dearing SIX NATIONS A man who had never visited Pauline Johnson's former home, now known as the Chiefswood National Historic Site, made a surprise visit on July 3 to give the museum a Pauline Johnson artifact that his father had collected. David McCleary, with the support of his friend Six Nations member Wray Anderson (IC Computers owner) brought a set of 100 original 1961 stamps of Pauline Johnson to the museum. “They're a real link with history,” McCleary said. McCleary said his father, an avid stamp collector, had purchased the sheet of stamps when they were first issued by the Government of Canada. At the time, his father was living in Grand Valley (East Luther). The stamps were issued in 1961, to commemorate Pauline Johnson's birth in 1861. The Canadian Banknote Company printed 34,450,000 of the stamps. According to Postal History Corner, the Canadian Post Office issued a press release to announce the commemorative stamp, saying the artwork portrayed her dual personalities: the Aboriginal princess and the Victorian lady. The stamp also honours Pauline for her contributions to literature. Pauline Johnson is the first Aboriginal – and the first woman, other than Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth II – to be commemorated with a stamp. McCleary recalled the stamps were in high demand when they were first issued. McCleary said he had the stamps framed in Simcoe, and had not had the stamps appraised. He was modest about his gift, saying his family had moved on, and he wanted the stamps to move on as well. “They have to have a higher and better use,” he said. “I thought of Chiefswood.” Sadly, former curator Karen Dearlove missed the donation by a hair, as July 2 was her last day on the job.

She had previously told Tekawennake she was moving west to join her husband, who had been offered a permanent job in Vancouver. In a way, it's full circle for Dearlove, because Pauline Johnson died in Vancouver and is buried in Stanley Park.

The gift will need to be appraised for insurance purposes, but best guesses on the value of the stamps range from $30,000 to $750,000. A vertical pair of Pauline Johnson stamps had been appraised as being worth $1,500 in 2000, and sold for a reported $675.00.

David McCleary hands Jaquie Jamieson a framed sheet of 100 original Pauline Johnson stamps, which had been purchased by his father in 1961. Jamieson, a summer student, filled the void left by the resignation of the former curator. With them are Wray Anderson, a good friend of David. (Photograph by Stephanie Dearing).

Six Nations Elected Council Briefs By Stephanie Dearing West Nile Virus prevention measures Elected Council will give GDG Environment, a Quebec-based company, a letter of support for the company's services, specifically for West Nile Virus treatments in Six Nations. While information provided to council's Human Services Committee was lacking, GDG's website states the company uses biological controls for biting insects, specifically Bt, or Bacillus thuringiensis. The bacteria has deadly consequences for mosquitoes, black flies and other biting insects, but is safe for humans and other mammals. The treatments will

be announced in the Six Nations newsletter, and are to be completely paid for by Health Canada. West Nile Virus is can be transmitted from mosquitoes to humans, and in some cases the disease, which came from Africa, can have deadly results for people. The best ways to avoid contracting the virus are to reduce standing water (where mosquitoes breed); avoid mosquito-infested areas, but if you can't, wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, hats, socks and shoes when outdoors. Make sure window screens are in good condition, and use insect repellent. So far, no cases of the virus have been reported for either Brant or Haldimand-Norfolk Counties. However, the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit has said it will no longer test dead birds for the virus as that specific information is no longer needed. The province will

Kissing Grade 8 goodbye with New Credit style By Stephanie Dearing NEW CREDIT

Graduates from Lloyd S. King elementary were given honorary seating for their graduation ceremony held June 19. Initially the graduates seemed nervous but excitement grew as they congregated in the new community centre for the event. Because New Credit did not have the capacity, past graduation ceremonies were held in other venues. The change in venue drew in more than the 100 parents and family members who had registered to attend the graduation, causing a welcome short-

age of tables. Lloyd S. King staff members happily gave up their seats to attending families. Chief Bryan LaForme told the thirteen graduates, “When our school opened, we had one graduation in that very first year. Now we average 10 to 15 graduates a year. We've come a long way.” The Chief was just one of many speakers who had advice for the young people. “Your life is now,” said teacher Ms. Macdonell. “Seize it and make it amazing.” “I encourage you to travel,” said Chair of Education, Margaret Sault. She also urged

Grade 8 graduates from Emily C. General were honoured last Tuesday evening. Proud teachers Miss C. Gowland and Mrs. S. Miller watched as their students took to the stage for the coming-of-age ceremony that acknowledges the hard work and dedication the students made. The graduating class was: Brent Beauchamp, Brooke Beaver, Aleesha Clause, Kenneth Davis, Brenden Montour-Hill, Kendrew Jacobs, Jodie Johnson, Lyle Jonathan, Chaley Martin, David Martin, Claudia Miller, Emily Miller, Kylee Sandy, Alyziah Styres, Trey Thomas, Starlet Thompson, Brook Tookoome-Hill, Dylan Toulouse, Kayla White, Lyle White and Davin Whitlow. Valedictorians were Brenden Montour-Hill and Claudia Miller. (Photograph by Scott Smith).

Rivermen fulfill promise Continued from page 10 first period lead. The Rivermen kept the pressure on the Saints early in the second period with Stu Hill and Cory Bomberry adding goals at 7:55 and 16:32. St. Kitts‘ Dylan Llord made it 6-3 after two periods. Vyse scored a quick one to begin the third period at the 31 second mark and Cody Johnson made it 8-3 at 3:35. Chris Attwood, a name familiar to most Six Nations lacrosse fans, scored two at 5:17 and 9:51, but Justin Gibson put the cherry on top of the Rivermen win at 12:20 while Goodleaf kept St. Catharines shooters off the scorecard.

Moon teachings help people find path to wellness By Stephanie Dearing OHSWEKEN

“People forget there's a connection between our culture and our well-being,” said Crystal MacDonald, the Diabetes Prevention Coordinator with SOADI (Southern Ontario Aboriginal Diabetes Initiative). Crystal and her colleagues were presenting a one-day workshop on Diabetes Wellness Coaching at the Six Nations community hall on the 28th of June. The workshop is based on the 13 Grandmother Moon Diabetes Wellness curriculum, a program that incorporates original instructions, journey of the seed, physical activity, nutrition and healthy eating and practising our purpose. SOADI Education Coordinator, Shannon VanEvery, said the day was about reminding “people about our true purpose.” She said people tend to forget “we're all sacred beings.” Presenter Renee ThomasHill said it is the choices people make when they are stressed “that keeps us from peace, power and righteousness,” which are the instructions given in the Great Law of Peace. “Learning how to play is the most important thing,” Thomas-Hill said. The elder works at a treatment center, and said she often finds herself teaching adults how to cry and how to vent frustration and anger in healthy ways. She recommends people employ what she calls the bear growl for venting anger and frustration, and said she's found that as people grow up they learn to suppress their sadness, and do not cry. “To have peace you can cry, growl and play,” said Thomas-Hill. Her presentation emphasized the importance of having a connection to one's food. Children, she said, “have no relationship to their food, and they don't understand that our food came from a long journey to give us wellness.” Overcooked food, foods lacking nutrition, and forgetting how to eat for the season has resulted in addictions, community violence and chaos, Thomas-Hill said. “We need to do more

cooking, because that is powerful medicine.” “Peace is within us,” said VanEvery, summarizing the intensive information given by Renee Thomas-Hill Friday morning. “Without peace, we will have problems and addictions,” said VanEvery. “Power is in those symbols we have all around us. Power is our perception.” “Righteousness is our walk, based on how we are

in our peace and how we perceive things,” VanEvery continued. “That walk is our relationship with ourselves, with others, with our food.” After a yoga break, where the approximately 50 participants were actively taken through some easy no-impact exercises, participants settled into breakout groups to discuss the training theme of leadership. VanEvery said the work-

shops offered by SOADI usually run over two days, but Friday's workshop was “an introduction to our curriculum.” The theme of Friday's teachings was leadership. The workshop was part of SOADI's frontline worker training, but community members were welcome. People can use the moon teachings to support their journey towards restoring their health and well-being.

On Monday, June 17, 2013 the Pen Pal Gathering brought together 1800 students from Six Nations, Mississaugaus of the New Credit First Nation and many children from the neighbouring communities of Haldimand and Norfolk County, Hamilton, Brantford and Burlington. The students exchanged letters throughout the year and came together in the celebration of peace and friendship. This year’s event was especially meaningful as we celebrated our 200 year ally relationship since the War of 1812 and the Treaty relationship we have maintained since 1613. The following organizations and people need to be acknowledged for their generosity, commitment and continued support of this unique initiative. They are listed in no particular order as all played key roles in the success of the gathering of pen pals. To start the day we had special contributions from teachers and students, they are; Brenden Hill (Emily C. General School), Mrs. Deborah Hill’s (Oliver M.
