TORONTO — The HDI numbered corporation 2438543 Ontario Inc. and its director/HDI “internal counsel” Aaron Detlor are shown on land registry documents as 50% co-owners of a luxury $1.4 million dollar condominium in downtown Toronto. The transfer was posted to the Ontario land registry in January 2023. The property is a walk up, three floor condominium in a new condo building in Toronto’s west end Ron-
cesvalles neighbourhood where the average home price is approximately $1.8 million dollars.
Detlor is also shown on land registry documents to be the owner of another luxury condo in the same building since 2017.
According to a neighbourhood assessment of the area, it is primarily white Canadian residents with a small percentage of Asian and Indian descendant residents.
The three-floor condo property was bought for $1,380,000 — including over $48,000 in municipal and provincial land taxes — an amount that is nearly
equal to the entire HDI payroll costs for 2021 and three times the culture and language contributions the HDI made in 2022.
That’s five times the average housing allocation of $250,000 available to Six Nations band members for new build loans on the territory. And five times the 2022 allocation of funds contributed by HDI to restore the old council house.
It is a stunning 53 times the amount of investment HDI made toward the HCCC’s operations, according to its 2022 financial statements.
It is described in the
sale listing as an “exceptional end-unit townhome” with three bedrooms and four bathrooms that have heated floors and floor to ceiling windows, “luxuriously laid over nearly 2000 sq ft”.
The listing for the property also says the condominium community offers a gym, concierge, party room, cinema, meeting room and security guards.
2RT broke the story Friday afternoon and community reaction was a mixture of offence and sadness. Several comments came in stating the decision to buy a residential condo in a luxury condo next door
to Detlor’s other property was tone deaf in light of the Six Nations housing crisis, lack of drinking water, leaking roof at the Six Nations Iroquois Lodge and the still homeless Six Nations language immersion school Kaweniio/ Gaweniiyo.
Several commenters wanted to know why the HDI and/or the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council would want to purchase a luxury condo in Toronto. 2RT reached out to both HCCC and the HDI for comment Friday but did not receive a response to that request.

Mississaugas of the Credit seeking compensation for watershed
all the parties are coming in to question.
The Missisaugas of the Credit First Nation is focusing on water.
With three parties now seeking to intervene in Six Nations’ mammoth land claim case, the motives of
All motions are now public after a judge ordered every document relating to the land claim case be published online three weeks ago.
The Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee Development Institute and the Six
Nations Men’s Fire have all applied to intervene in the lawsuit, each claiming a vested interest in the outcome.
The suit was first filed by Six Nations of the Grand River against the Crown in 1995, with Six Nations accusing the government of misappropriating funds from illegal sales of large portions of the 950,000acre Haldimand Tract.
Six Nations is seeking compensation at an unspecified amount but past speculation has placed the figure owed to the community in the trillions if accounting for 200 years’ worth of inflation.
The HDI, the administrative arm of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council, noted in its filing it is seeking to intervene as the rightful treaty holder to the Haldimand lands, and not Six Nations Elected Band Council.
The Men’s Fire is arguing that the HDI does not represent Six Nations people.
accountable for any impropriety regarding land sales and wants to ensure its “relationship with the territory” is “accurately presented” when the case goes to trial.
MCFN has a number of treaties and land rights interests throughout Southern Ontario, much of that land falling within the Haldimand Tract.
However, MCFN is placing a specific focus on waters, waterbeds and floodplains in the territory in question as part of its intervention in the case.
“The ancestors of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation did discuss water within its territory with the Crown and were told that the Crown was, generally, not interested in their water,” the First Nation noted in its statement of claim. “The treaties, generally, dealt only with their land.”
declares that MCFN has aboriginal title to the water, beds of water, and floodplains in the territory in question and that it did not surrender any of those waters.
MCFN also states it has the right to hunt, fish, trap, gather or collect any and all species or types of animals, plants, minerals and oil for various purposes, as well as the right to access the lands in question for conservation, traditional and ceremonial purposes.
Alternatively, MCFN says if the courts do not find it has aboriginal title to the water and floodplains in question, that it instead be recognized as having common law public rights to the land and water.
Public rights would include the right to fish and use the water for navigation.
those lands, waters and floodplains to be returned to them.
In none of those can be returned, the monetary value of the waters must be provided as compensation, MCFN said.
“This means that Mississaugas of the Credit are owed today the unimproved fair market value of the water, beds of water, and floodplains improperly included in the land surrenders between the Mississaugas Indians and the Crown between 1781 and 1822 that cannot be returned.”
They further state they are owed lost opportunity and loss of use with respect to those waters while Canada benefitted from the use of those waters.
MCFN, meanwhile, said it supports Six Nations in its bid to hold the Crown
MCFN cites a number of treaties and historical documents in stressing the importance of water and waterways to their people.
In the MCFN statement of claim, the First Nation
MCFN said the government had a fiduciary duty to respect and protect those waters and floodplains and that they have suffered loss and damage from the breach of that fiduciary duty.
MCFN is asking for
One example, MCFN said, is Canada’s benefit from hydro-electric projects.
MCFN has asked that none of the waters in question be further impacted while the case is heard and that the waters be returned to MCFN, along with compensation for losses.

Third Line Road landowner has yet to clean up contamination site
contaminated sites or hazardous waste sites (on Six Nations) that people are aware of.
and end up on Six Nations, said Whitlow.
A Third Line Road homeowner has been asked to clean up contaminated soil on the property but has not yet complied, Six Nations Elected Council heard on Monday.
The landowner brought soil fill in to the property from the City of Vaughan and it was later discovered to have higher than provincially acceptable levels of benzene and pyrene.
But because there are no environmental by-laws here or ways to enforce them, it’s difficult to get a clean up order, according to Rod Whitlow, Six Nations Environmental Lead.
“Because there’s no federal environmental regulations that apply on reserve, we’re kind of at a disadvantage here in terms of making informed decisions about reducing exposure to some of these environmental contaminants.”
Whitlow said the Third Line contaminants are also called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and now,
because it’s in the ground, they’re going to test wells down gradient from that soil site.
The testing is just part of Whitlow’s plan to test other contaminated water and soil sites on Six Nations as he seeks funding from a special federal program to conduct the tests.
“It’s a federal funding program looking at the ecological human health effects from exposure to environmental contaminants. You might recall that there had been quite a few com-
munity concerns over the past few years about soil contamination and water contamination so we did approach Health Canada.”
He said their current environmental monitoring program only focuses on well water.
“It does not include access to laboratory analysis to soil.”
He met with the contaminants lead for Health Canada in Ottawa and they suggested to access the funding with the proposal to cover some of the lab
fees and water testing.
The application has been conditionally accepted, he said, and he anticipates the approval letter will come in before summer.
“The premise behind it is it’s going to provide us with some funding to do some soil and water testing using an accredited lab. We put in the proposal to select up to five sites. We know there’s no environmental regulations on Six Nations as is the case for all First Nations in Canada. The fact is, there’s some legacy
“So there’s a lot of concern,” he concluded. “There’s concern of pesticides and herbicides for the many agricultural farms we’ve come across in the community. We’re trying to figure out what we have to get in terms of ethics approval.”
He’s recruited a toxicologist from the University of Guelph who has agreed to assist as the principal investigator.
The title of the project is Delineation of Contaminated Sites Across the Community.
They will use a geographic information system (GIS) to select five sites.
“It won’t be a comprehensive environmental study,” said Whitlow. “This one is basically to demonstrate we know there are contaminated hot spots across the community. Some of them are buried, some of them came by way of atmosphere deposition.”
Anything coming from states on south side of Lake Erie could be transported
The water and soil sampling will determine how far the contaminants have migrated.
They will also try to get more funding for more comprehensive testing.
When it comes to water, wells are generally unsafe on Six Nations because there are no policies to prevent them from being contaminated.
Whitlow said boil waters advisories help remove bacterial contaminants but not chemical contaminants. The drinking water in private well systems is not suitable for drinking, he said.
“Because there’s no federal environmental regulations that apply on reserve, we’re kind of at a disadvantage here in terms of making informed decisions about reducing exposure to some of these environmental contaminants.”
Testing for contaminants isn’t cheap, either. Some soil testing can cost around $25,000 for just five to six soil samples. “They’re quite expensive,” said Whitlow.

Steve Williams has submitted his resignation as the Chief Electoral Polling Officer for Six Nations of the Grand River elected council.
Williams handed his resignation in via letter on Mar. 23, 2023.
Williams faced some controversy in 2020, when Six Nations elected
Chief Electoral Officer Steve Williams resigns
council, in a public letter, demanded he resign as the Six Nations Police Commissioner.
Elected Council later apologized for the letter and donated $10,000 to a charity of his choice.
Williams sued council and that case was dismissed on consent. No details about the agreement have been released to the public.
Williams was also asked to step down as CEPO after the 2019
election when an unsuccessful Councillor candidate sent a letter to the Six Nations Elections Appeals Committee calling for his removal.
Williams said in his resignation letter, "I have asked you three times to get an election code committee together, which never happen (sic).”
He continued, “Now I find on Facebook there is an election committee, who is being paid by Darrin Jamieson (council’s
Senior Administrative Officer) on your behalf and who receives the reports. No one has contact (sic) me even though I am the Chief Election Polling Officer for my concerns.”
Williams said he has made up his mind, even though it appears elected council wants him to remain as CEPO.
“Please consider this my resignation, effective immediately. I do want to thank you for the opportunity to run the last few
elections, which I enjoyed, and all the staff that helped me, including my deputy, Shirley Johnson.”
Johnson is elected council’s manager of central administration.
“I wish whoever you pick to replace me the best,” Williams wrote. “I have all paperwork on a drive stick which should make it easier. If that person needs help, please let me know. I would be happy to help.”
Pause to appreciate language this Indigenous Languages Day
North Americans have celebrated National Indigenous Languages Day on Mar. 31 since 1993 to honour the strength and endurance of Indigenous languages and culture. The same goes for 2023.
“While National Aboriginal Languages Day is a single day to honour the legacy we have inherited, there are thousands of Indigenous Language Champions creating and delivering Indigenous languages programs and traditional teachings every day,” said the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) when speaking about Indigenous Languages Day several years ago.
“We celebrate the work of our Indigenous Language and Culture Champions to revitalize and seek ways to sustain survival of our languages.
The AFN said it acknowledges the difficult burden Indigenous Language and Culture Champions have carried to reverse more than a century of attempts, primarily through residential schools, to erase Indigenous languages and identity.
“It is a harsh reality that the Crown, Canada and the churches attempted to exterminate Indigenous culture and languages by targeting the most vul-
nerable members of the Indigenous communities’ population, children,” said Associate Director Learning Services Hamilton Wentworth District School Board Sue Dunlop when referencing last year’s Indigenous Languages Day.
Dunlop said treaties are international, nation-to-nation agreements. If the Crown, Canada and the churches had succeeded, the defining nationhood criteria would have been eradicated. Then, as anticipated, Indigenous people would no longer exist according to Canadian legislation, negating the Crown’s fiduciary responsibilities to fulfill treaty obligations.
“HWDSB will continue to work in friendship and conversation with the Indigenous Cultural Safety Team and the Hamilton-Wentworth Indigenous community to protect the rights of the learners within the HWDSB umbrella, to ensure appropriate resources that are authentic and accurate will be made available as an aspect of cultural safety,” she said. “On this Indigenous Languages Day, we understand that Indigenous language loss, retrieval, protection and revitalization represent a part of our shared history that requires pause. It is imperative that we understand the treaty agreements that have been hidden from us.”

The benefits of learning a new language
Canada to address overrepresentation of BIPOC in justice system
Students face many challenges during their academic careers. Overcoming those challenges not only sets a strong foundation for success in the classroom, but also outside of the classroom.
Foreign language courses pose a significant challenge to many students. But learning a second language can benefit students in both the short- and long-term.
Early language learning can improve cognitive abilities. The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages notes that various studies dating back several decades have connected language learning with improved
cognitive abilities. Such studies have linked early language learning with higher IQs and superior problem-solving skills compared to non-bilingual students.
Bilingualism can improve memory. A 2003 study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology found that bilingualism had positive effects on both episodic memory and semantic memory. Episodic memory is a type of long-term memory that involves conscious recollection of previous experiences together with their context. Semantic memory also is a type of long-term memory that involves the capacity to recall words, concepts or numbers. Strengthening these types of memory can benefit children in the classroom and outside
the classroom when they reach adulthood.
Bilingualism can benefit working professionals. The benefits of bilingualism don’t end once students enter the workforce as professionals. In fact, a 2017 study of data from the market analytics firm Burning Glass Technologies found that, between 2010 and 2015, the number of job postings aimed at bilingual workers nearly tripled, rising from 240,000 in 2010 to 630,000 by 2015.
Developing fluency in another language is no small task, but it’s one that’s well worth the effort.
The Government of Canada is committed to addressing the overrepresentation of Indigenous, Black, and racialized people in Canada's criminal justice system.
The government has advanced an array of innovative and progressive initiatives that are said to make the system fairer and communities safer. A central element of this work involves advancing alternatives to custody, helping former offenders move on with their lives, and supporting their safe reintegration into our communities.
The Minister of Public Safety Honourable Marco Mendicino announced the launch of two initiatives to address the overrepresentation of Indigenous, Black, and racialized people in the criminal justice system.
"Systemic racism is a harsh reality across Cana-
da's criminal justice system. The overrepresentation of Indigenous, Black, and racialized people is a symptom of this broader illness. That's why our government is redoubling efforts to address it, advancing progressive initiatives that address systemic barriers, give people a second shot and break the cycle of reoffending,” said Honourable Marco Mendicino, Minister of Public Safety.
The Indigenous Community Corrections Initiative (ICCI) supports grassroots efforts that expand alternatives to custody and support reintegration among Indigenous offenders. A total of $5.21 million will be available from 2023 to 2024 and $12 million ongoing thereafter to support organizations that rehabilitate or reintegrate Indigenous offenders through project development, training, communications, and direct interventions. Applications are open until June 12.
Additionally, the Correc-
tional Service of Canada (CSC) is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from Black and racialized community groups, experts or organizations to address overrepresentation by assisting with safe and successful reintegration.
The first step in this process is building a comprehensive national inventory of organizations that, based on their specific strengths, could work with CSC or Public Safety Canada. Interested parties are invited to submit an EOI to CSC no later than May 15.
These efforts build on the Government of Canada's ongoing efforts to address the overrepresentation of Indigenous, Black, and racialized people in the criminal justice system. This work involves a wide range of steps, from passing legislation that addresses harmful mandatory minimum sentences to significantly cutting the fee for a record suspension.

The Great Law story of condolence as told
HDIs land claim challenge includes an affidavit by historian Rick Hill that says the Seth Newhouse version of the Great Law is rejected.
Early documents from the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council, obtained by 2RT, show that the gospelization of the Great Law was an early strategy put in place just after HDI was formally brought together.
The first order of business, according to the HCCC, was to ensure that there was only one version of the Great Law being used and that copies of that version were to be made available to everyone.
This was in 2008.
Today, a little basic googling will tell you that there are around 24 different versions out there of the Great Law — which makes sense given that the story transitioned from oral tradition to written word.
Even Wikipedia has its own version.
So why all the stress over this one specific Seth Newhouse version?
You can read all about the HDIs problems with it in the land claims documents that are posted on line. They have had their say. We want to focus on is what it does say.
What does Seth Newhouse say?
Why is it banned?
By nature - banned
things draw interest. So we grabbed a copy of Seth Newhouse’s original manuscript and read it.
It moved us to tears. Almost instantly. It is inspiring to see the handwritten notes of this old, greyed out document from almost 150 years ago before your own eyes and to see the painstaking work that went into the research that Newhouse conducted, over decades, bringing together the oral traditions into a collective gathering of the Great Law.
One of the most lovely things Newhouse captured, was the essence of how our Great Law is a reflection of the Haudenosaunee family. Under the Great Law, he says the
Chiefs are Brothers, the Warriors are the Nephews, the Women are the Nieces, and everyone has a voice.
Everyone is related.
The other touching aspect is the condolence ceremony. The Chiefs are brought together in this incredible narrative of travelling across the territory, singing a hymn, gathering together the leaders of warring nations. The condolence, wipes away tears from their eyes, clears their throats of blockages and settles their insides from grief. It is a story filled with song, and touching outreach, brother to brother — developing something that is rarely seen inside our
community today. Trust.
Recognizing one another in your grief. Acknowledging our shared grief, our humanity, our common need for peace of mind and to bring one another together in safety.
Dekanawida walks through the forests, bringing together the Warriors in a song that reaches through time and space — speaking to the people by crying out, “My offspring…”. It is as if our grandfathers are speaking directly to us.
The words of Seth Newhouse are everything this community needs right now. So we will share a bit here today. The full document will be available
to the community on our website.
“Now today I have been greatly surprised by your voice coming over this forest, having come through a dangerous path over many obstacles you kept seeing in the way.
Traces of counsel fires on which we defended, My offspring, How then can your mind be on troubled you kept seeing the foot marks of our forefathers entirely perceptible but the smoke where they used to smoke their pipes how then can you remind me, troubled weeping on your way, but now being greatly
comforted and peaceful. You having now arrived, and we are now smoking together because on every hand are dangers with intentions of becoming the means of destroying it Points are near at hand And blows are ready to fall and incantations that might have prostrated you my offspring, and there are waters by which you might have fallen my offspring, and also the appearing of the hatchet Shadows surrounding the house every day, damaging our people Great Faceless Witch the great means of death by which you might have fallen.

Parents of adults with severe autism say they're 'terrified' of the future
decades, since his son was diagnosed with autism at age three.
in the province to accommodate the growing need.
Andrew Kavchak's decision to retire was less about taking time for himself, and more about taking care of his 22-yearold son, Steven, who has severe autism.
Three days a week, Andrew drives Steven to take part in a day program for adults with disabilities. He said the cost is high, though an Ontario government program called ``Passport'' does provide some financial assistance.
But he worries about the future. Steven needs constant care and cannot live by himself.
``Parents usually die before their children, and at some point my wife and I are going to be too old to take care of our son,'' said Andrew Kavchak.
The former public servant has been navigating Ontario's changing autism program for nearly two
``The truth is that it's really difficult sometimes to take care of a child, even an adult child who's severely disabled, it's exhausting,'' he said.
When Steven aged out of the Ontario Autism Program at 18, the family was thrust into another system that offered little to no help.
Adults with autism can turn to Developmental Services Ontario for support, but the wait-lists can be just as long, if not longer, than the Ontario Autism Program. Kavchak said he's been told the wait to get his son into a group home could be 10 years.
``We've been on the list for four years. There's still no indication of when our son may eventually get placed in a group home. This is extremely worrying,'' said Kavchak.
Advocates say there are not enough group homes
In large cities like Ottawa and Toronto, available spaces are being used for urgent care situations, such as when parents are no longer able to manage the care.
Tobi McEvenue, the manager of transition and adult supports at Autism Ontario, said there are not enough resources and services to meet the need. She said it's critical for people with severe forms of autism to have access to services from childhood well into adulthood.
``We spend the majority of our lives as adults and we require accommodations experienced as youths to carry with us into adulthood, because they enable a lot of folks to maintain the proper quality of life that they deserve,'' said McEvenue. Autism spectrum disorder ranges in severity. Some people with severe autism require constant care and supportive
Autism now more common among Black, Hispanic kids in US
The Canadian Press NEW YORK — For the first time, autism is being diagnosed more frequently in Black and Hispanic children than in white kids in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.
Among all U.S. 8-yearolds, 1 in 36 had autism in 2020, the CDC estimated. That's up from 1 in 44 two years earlier.
But the rate rose faster for children of color than for white kids. The new estimates suggest that about 3% of Black, Hispanic and Asian or Pacific Islander children have an autism diagnosis, compared with about 2% of white kids.
That's a contrast to the past, when autism was most commonly diagnosed in white kids — usually in middle- or upper-income families with the means to go to autism specialists. As recently as 2010, white kids were deemed 30% more likely to be diagnosed with autism than Black children and 50% more likely than Hispanic children.
Experts attributed the
change to improved screening and autism services for all kids, and to increased awareness and advocacy for Black and Hispanic families.
The increase is from ``this rush to catch up,'' said David Mandell, a University of Pennsylvania psychiatry professor.
Still, it's not clear that Black and Hispanic children with autism are being helped as much as their white counterparts. A study published in January found Black and Hispanic kids had less access to autism services than white children during the 2017-2018 academic year.
Autism is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. There are many possible symptoms, many of which overlap with other diagnoses. They can include delays in language and learning, social and emotional withdrawal, and an unusual need for routine. Scientists believe genetics can play a role, but there is no known biological reason why it would be more common in one racial or ethnic group
housing. Adults with low to moderate autism are typically able to live independently.
McEvenue said there is also a large portion of people on the spectrum who are looking for work, which is an issue that is often overlooked.
``It's not a positive horizon for a lot of folks,'' said McEvenue.
Christine Berridge's two sons have autism and she said she's no stranger to navigating the various support programs. Her eldest, Austin, is now 18 and the family has been told he is ineligible for Developmental Services Ontario programs.
The program for adults with an intellectual disability has specific criteria that assesses a person's cognitive ability, adaptive ability and the onset.
A program eligibility document says that applicants must score at or below the fifth percen-
tile in both cognitive and adaptive ability to receive services.
Austin scored in the seventh percentile.
``We're basically limiting people with disabilities to low-paying and student jobs. They struggle enough in society,'' she said.
A spokesperson from the office of Merrilee Fullerton, the minister of children, community and social services, said the ministry does not collect diagnostic-related data of those applying to the adult developmental services programs.
They did not answer questions regarding the scoring percentile, the wait-list for services or the need for lifelong care.
Austin has been able to get funding from two provincial programs. But because of his autism, anxiety and intellectual disabilities, he needs
specialized supports or a respite worker, and his ineligibility limits what he can access.
``I think about it a lot. It is very depressing and very upsetting. So I try to live in the moment, but at the same time, you have to plan for the future, hope for the best prepare for the worst,'' said Berridge.
She's concerned about her 11-year-old son, who has moderate to severe autism and needs support in daily living.
Under the current criteria he would qualify for programs such as housing and additional care, but she said the changing landscape of the system makes it difficult to know what to expect.
``I'm absolutely terrified. I feel that whatever we do, it's a lose-lose situation,'' said Berridge.
``There needs to be something in place for these kids.''
For decades, the diagnosis was given only to kids with severe problems communicating or socializing and those with unusual, repetitive behaviors. But around 30 years ago, the term became shorthand for a group of milder, related conditions known as ?autism spectrum disorders.``
There are no blood or biologic tests for it. It's diagnosed by making judgments about a child's behavior.
To estimate how common autism is, the CDC checks health and school records in 11 states and focuses on 8-year-olds, because most cases are diagnosed by that age. Other researchers have their own estimates, but experts say the CDC's estimate is the most rigorous and is considered the gold standard.
The overall autism rate has been rising for decades and it remains far more common among boys than girls. But the latest study also found, for the first time, that more than 1% of 8-year-old girls had been diagnosed with it.

Australia launches the world’s first Indigenous space academy
Indigenous Australian university students will be allowed to reach for the stars, with a new internship program supported by the Australian Space Agency (ASA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Launched on Mar. 21 as part of the NASA administrator’s visit to Australia, the National Indigenous Space Academy (NISA) will see up to five students studying in STEM fields travel to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA JPL) in California for a 10-week full-time summer internship program.
“The Australian Government is committed to creating opportunities for all young people, including First Nations Australians to have rewarding careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” said Minister for Industry and Science Ed Husic. “The National Indigenous Space Academy
will help students develop knowledge and skills that will open up a new world of career opportunities.”
The selected undergraduate or postgraduate students will attend space boot camp prior to their departure focused on aerodynamics, robotics, astrophysics, planetary science, engineering, computer and earth sciences, as well as past and current

As part of their internships, the students will be partnered with a NASA JPL scientist or engineer mentor and complete projects outlined by their mentors while also contributing to NASA JPL missions.
“This partnership between the NISA and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory
will demonstrate Indigenous Australian students — and students throughout the world — can play a critical role in human space exploration,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “The missions of tomorrow will be sparked by the accomplishments of today. As we usher in a new era of space exploration, our nations must continue eroding barriers that limit
opportunities and instead support future explorers to reach their full potential.”
The program will create a pathway for Indigenous students to participate in NASA JPL projects such as robotics, robot perception control, path planning and Artificial Intelligence.

ALL playoffs set to begin this weekend
By TRT Staff with notes from arenalacrosseleague.ca
SIX NATIONS — Eastern Arena Lacrosse League games continued this past weekend with the Six Nations Snipers in sixth place and the Ohsweken Bears in seventh as the league prepares for playoffs this weekend.
On Friday, March 24, at the Brampton Memorial Arena, the Brampton Express opened with an 8-0 lead five minutes into the second quarter. It took the Snipers a while to get on the board. At the half the Express had a 10-1 lead. Brampton took their foot off the gas in the second half. Although the Express still controlled play, they didn't run up the score. The final score was 14-3 for Brampton.
Justin Porga (1g,0a), Nolan Fehr (1g,0a) and Cheyton King (1g,0a) scored for the Snipers.
Dustin Hill faced 58 shots, making 46 saves while Jaxon Longboat
played the majority of the fourth quarter facing 12 shots, making 10 saves.
The Three Stars included a third place star for tender Dustin Hill.
On Saturday, the Toronto Monarchs faced the Whitby Steelhawks and lost 17-20 at the Chil-dren's Arena in
The league leading Toronto Monarchs had their work cut out for them losing two of their top players the day earlier to the National Lacrosse League.
Parker Pipher was put on the Rochester Knighthawks' active roster, while
Mason Kamminga was put on the New York Riptide's active roster.
Later on Saturday, the Ohsweken Bears took a hit from the Oshawa Outlaws at the Children's Arena in Oshawa.
The Ohsweken Bears put up a good fight in the first
quarter, but just were overmatched being extremely undermanned. Ohsweken was only able to dress nine runners in this game. By the half it was 13-5 for the Outlaws, and 22-6 after three. A full Oshawa squad showed they are primed and ready for the upcoming playoffs.
For the Bears, Isaac Vanderzalm (2g,2a), Chris Attwood (2g,1a) and Alex Henry (3g,0a) did the scoring. This closed the game at 7-25, giving the game to the Outlaws.
On Sunday, the Iroquois
Lacrosse Arena saw the Peterborough Timbermen lose to the Paris RiverWolves 14-17.
A fast start from Paris helped them hold on for the victory in this game. Andy Campbell, Dylan Goddard and Noah Simonelli helped stake the RiverWolves to an 11-2 lead by the second quar-ter. Aaron Bradshaw and Riley Curtis were instrumental in the seven goal Timbermen third quarter to make this a close game again. Campbell and Eric Lemire were able to restore a five goal lead with just one minute to go, but Peterborough had been scrappy all season, and would go down swinging in this one as well. Goals from Keegan White and Riley Curtis brought this game to a 17-14 finish for the RiverWolves.

Six Nations Chiefs announce John Tavares in leadership
By TRT Staff with notes from sixnationschiefs. blogspot.com
SIX NATIONS — As announced on March 13, John Tavares is leading the Six Nations Chiefs. Chiefs president and general manager Duane Jacobs named Tavares head coach after he stepped down as the Major Series Lacrosse team's head coach, heading into the 2023 season.
"We are pleased to announce that John Tavares will be our next head coach," Jacobs said. "JT has been with us since 2018 and I felt he was the obvious choice to coach our team.”
After Rich Kilgour stepped down as the bench boss in January of 2020, Jacobs assumed the role while he searched for a more permanent head coach.
"We took our time in our search but it always came back JT," Jacobs said. "I never intended to be the teams full-time head coach out of the pandemic, although I enjoyed
doing it. My focus will be on GM and the operation side of things. Being GM and our coach for the last 20 years has been been a privilege, but I'm stepping back from my duties. I want do others things."
Jacobs said over the years as a coach, Tavares has been very engaging with the players, communicates well and has their respect.
"JT is familiar with our organization, our players and our community and enjoys coaching our Six Nations style of play," Jacobs said. "JT is a great competitor and that competitiveness has transcended behind the bench. He loves winning and that’s the bar our organization has established and all I want is for that to continue.”
Currently, Tavares is the head coach of the National Lacrosse League's Buffalo Bandits. Last season he was a finalist for the Les Bartley Award, for NLL Coach of the Year.
