Redrum Motorcycle Club sends lacrosse player to Saskatchewan 'It's unbelievable how things are coming together' for Bryson Greene

SIX NATIONS — “There are no words to say,” expresses “Mini” Greeene, mom of Bryson who is now going to Saskatchewan to follow his lacrosse star at the SLA-SUBWAY Box National Bantam Championships hosted in Saskatoon between August 9th to14th. When he earned a spot on the team the joy was tempered by the knowledge that his family couldn't afford the cost of going. Disappointment didn’t cover the situation and mom started her own fundraising. Six Nations Redrum MC, heard about the situation and decided to help. “It’s unbelievable how things are coming together,” she says. “I didn’t think he was going to make it, but with this donation from the Redrum guys, he is going.” The next step for the Greenes is to continue to raise money towards mom

of motorcycle enthusiasts got together as a club almost four years ago under the banner of the international Redrum MC group, with the mother club’s first chapter on First Nations land and has developed itself into a benevolent entity helping individuals get through tough times with club rides and other fund raising events.

time for the Redrum MC club. Like with every organization, there are always growing pains and the Six Nations Chapter has been no different, however Joey General is glad they went through those times and came out the other side with a more defined identity as to who they are and

what they do. “We are very much about family,” says General. “We take our brotherhood very seriously but we have a great time.” The club estimates they have given tens of thousands of dollars to various needs since opening the chapter. They are always recruiting by way of their Facebook presence or by contacting a current member. Although they did not ride as a chapter at the Port Dover Friday 13th biker gathering last week, several of them went early, on Thursday the 12th. “It’s a lot quieter and not as crazy and jampacked,” said General. “Crusty” has been with the club since near the beginning and he and his wife , also a bike rider, really enjoy the friendship and commraudry the Club provides. “I’ve always just been an independent rider,” he says. “I saw the crest one day at Dover and got curious.” He followed the contact trail until he met with

present members and joined. “Fitzy” has been a rider since his teens but has not been a club rider of any kind until Redrum MC. “I’m like Crusty,” he says. “I was drawn here by the same desire to help people through riding.” “Joe” from Six Nations is one of the original nine Redrum Riders Six Nations Chapter. He has been through the fledgling steps of the club and is very happy with what this Chapter stands for. “Chewy” is a character that wouldn’t look comfortable behind anything but a pair of Harley-Davidson handlebars. He joined the club a year ago in December and has stayed. “I like the fact that we can help people out,” he says. The mother club has chapters across Canada and the USA and even a few in Europe so their patch and colours are recognized everywhere as a benevolent bunch of riders out to help those in need.

Last week, this twopart series explored the theories surrounding the societies that were lost in time who once made North and South America their homelands, as well as the 190,000 years of unwritten human history. The Olmec, Anasazi and Maya are each believed to have met their ends through inner conflict, lack of resources, or as the new theories suggest, through contact with extraterrestrials or supernatural beings. Taking a look at the architectural advancements of each of these lost societies has led researchers to believe that the technology of the time couldn’t have supported the structures they constructed, and some believe extraterrestrials are to blame. This includes the Olmec colossal heads, the complex cities of Chaco Canyon and the temples of the Maya. But yet another grouping of ancient structures that were incorporated into the theories in the television show Ancient Aliens includes the Egyptian pyramids of Giza. The pyramids themselves are among some of the most impressive manmade pieces of history in the world, and it is estimated that they were built over 4,500 years ago with over 2 million stones. It is also estimated that the structures took 20 to 30 years to complete. However, with no blue prints or plans to be found in how the Egyptians built the pyramids, the society is also discredited. The sophistication and precision of their carving within obelisks has been compared to modern day techniques, and thus it is concluded by many that it was impossible for ancient architects and master carvers to perform with such quality with the tools used at the time. So, to argue the theory that ancient civilizations

weren’t sophisticated enough to build those structures, the use of the knowledge of the building known as the Coral Castle comes in handy. Originally called “Rock Gate Park,” the castle was constructed from 19231951 by a small man just over 5 feet tall with a weight of 100 pounds in Florida. Prompted by his “sweet sixteen” fiancé, who called off their wedding just one day before the ceremony, Edward Leedskalnin set out on a lifelong mission to create a monument to his lost love. With no assistance, large machinery and only a fourth grade education, Leedskalnin lifted and carved over 3 million pounds of rock to build what is now one of the world’s most remarkable accomplishments. But the main question has always been “how did he do it?” Noting his book “Magnetic Current,” which covers his take on detailed experimentation for researchers interested in learning how to become real scientists through refined results interpretation methodology and direct experimentation, many have come to believe that the private Leedskalnin was able to manipulate weight using magnetization. In other words, the way in which he built the Coral Castle was by making the rock levitate. These theories came about in part because of his size and the fact that he would work nightly under lamplight so that he could maintain his own privacy. With his

fourth grade education, picks, winches, ropes, pulleys and a broad understanding of the principles of leverage, Leedskalnin constructed the castle with his bare hands. So, unfortunately for those that enjoy the concept of hidden knowledge, the truth behind the construction of the Coral Castle is that Leedskalnin was capable of building the castle by himself. He may have also employed some of the same concepts that were used to build the pyramids. The two main theories that have been used to explain the building of the pyramids are the ramp theory and water shaft theory. The ramp theory itself has the most evidence to back it. The theory suggests that the pyramids were made with sheer manpower and thousands of workers to pull stones across the desert with rope and sleds. It was only recently that another faction of the theory surfaced: the workers used wet sand to reduce friction, which made the stone easier to to drag. This piece of the theory has also been found in ancient wall paintings. The stones were dragged across the desert from quarries as far as 900 km from the build site. The workers would then construct ramp options to drag the stones to the top as they built upwards using sand. The ramps either went straight up one side, wrapped around the pyramid or a combination of the two.

The workers then employed the use of levers once a certain height was reached as the ramps were no longer feasible. The main reason why this theory is fervently supported is the fact that sleds and images of giant statues being pulled by hundreds of men have been found on ancient wall paintings, but each ramp for dragging the stone across would have been very time-consuming. This leads into the other conclusion found in the water shaft theory. This theory outlines that canals were constructed that led all the way to build sites which allowed the stones to float, instead of being dragged to the site. Floats are believed to have been made of cedar wood or inflated animal skins wrapped in papyrus (a material made using the pithy stem of a water plant which was used in sheets throughout the ancient Mediterranean world), and thus when attached to the stones would enable them to be pulled ashore. The canals are also believed to have led to a moat that went around the circumference of the building perimeter and four water pipelines were then used to float the blocks uphill. The pipelines were also extended as the pyramid grew; several pyramids measure roughly 400 feet. A series of gates were also believed to have controlled how the blocks moved upward and a pool of water was placed on the top of the building area to allow for further floating and positioning without any real heavy lifting or dragging. Thus, the concept that ancient civilizations and societies had help from supernatural beings to construct ancient structures is more far-fetched than the belief that ancient civilizations had the manpower and sophistication to do it themselves. It is also interesting to note that today’s marathon would have been a regular run for an ancient Homo sapien.

Familiar stories in unfamiliar lands

STYRES VERDICT NO PUZZLE RESPONSE BY CHEZNEY MARTIN

LYLE HILL

news@tworowtimes.com

Dear Mr. Whitlow, Read your column but was puzzled by one thing, which you failed to mention. (This was a journalistic failure.) It was found as a fact that the accused Khill did not know at the time he fired his gun that the person trying to steal his car was an Indigenous person. So how is there a race aspect in this case? Do you say that simply because it turned out that the car thief was Indigenous, that this should have made the jury find Khill guilty? Would appreciate your Indigenous perspective on this so reconciliation could be better achieved. Peter Best Dear Mr. Best, Although I am not Mr. Whitlow, I felt that I would be able to offer a response that might help you to understand the racial implications of this case. I find that you addressing him as a car thief as a part of it; mind you he was a father and a loved one. He had a family and a life that was precious to those that knew him. He also holds a name and it is Jon Styres. So I believe that whether or not Khill knew that Styres was Indigenous carries a deep irrelevancy to your inquiry. It is the verdict of courts

in finding a man that shot another man that carries the real racial implication; they found Khill guilty of manslaughter rather than second degree murder after shooting Styres with a shotgun, in the dark, twice. With all of the other cases involving Indigenous people, you cannot expect there to not be racial implications; the court systems are the hardest on our people and the statistics prove this. More than a quarter of all inmates are First Nations, Metis or Inuit, so you cannot tell me it isn’t about race. Ivan Zinger, Canada’s correctional investigator, has already addressed this. “Indigenous people are released much later in their sentences than non-Aboriginal, most of them at statutory release, which means two-thirds of their sentence,” he said. “They are in higher security typically. They’re more likely to be in segregation. And then when they do go out, they’re more likely to be suspended or revoked.” So, no, Khill should not have been found guilty because Styres held Indigenous ancestry. But what is so very frustrating and heartbreaking is that his sentencing might have been different if Styres wasn’t. Miss Martin

Lacrosse has always been more than just a game for the Iroquois people, it is medicine. It begins with the little ones who are just learning the game and later on in life they will find out what the game means to themselves and their culture. In recent years the game has grown to a nationally televised sport and this year’s World Championship will see 14 games televised on ESPNU+ (unfortunately unavailable to stream in Canada) in Netanya, Israel. The world championship offers Team Iroquois a rare opportunity to step out onto the world stage and represent themselves as a sovereign nation, it is an act of resistance against ongoing colonialism and a show of strength and resiliency and that the Iroquois nation is still strong in its spirit and pride. On July 4 a campaign called the Palestine Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) posted an open letter to the Iroquois Nationals. In the letter the group asked the Iroquois Nationals to withdraw from the tournament and compared the Israeli occupation of historical and sacred Palestine land to the ongoing strug-

gles of the Iroquois. The campaign is a part of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement or BDS. According to their website (bdsmovement.net) Israel uses culture as propaganda to whitewash and justify Israeli occupation and settler colonialism of Palestine land. Sound familiar? The Israeli-Palestine conflict largely began in early twentieth century when an Israeli-born population fled from Europe and wanted to establish a homeland on the now contested land. Both countries can date their occupancy back thousands of years and thus, the conflict began. Israeli occupation and military presence in the area has ultimately kept the Palestine people under occupation despite making every effort possible to free themselves from occupancy. After a failed United Nations plan to divide up the land between the two nations led to several wars which led to where the country lines now sit, there is little hope for a diplomatic solution. However, whereas the politicians are hopeful, the people are still suffering. Tens of thousands have been displaced from their homelands and hundreds of thousands in casualties that linger into the millions are each the result of this settler occupation. There are camps on the

borders of Palestine where thousands live in the worst conditions imaginable, under constant threat of attack. This would have been an opportunity to stand with another nation who is under settler occupation, to lend a hand to another nation who has to fight for recognition for their struggles, and to form a friendship in struggle as a show of strength on a national stage to say that a wrong has been committed and we as nations will not stand for it. However, another familiar story emerged. On July 10 the Iroquois Nationals team attempted to depart from the Toronto International Airport for the tournament in Israel, but were delayed due to a miscommunication between Israeli and Canadian officials. The delay showed shades of 2010 when the Nationals team was denied entry to Britain for the world championships in Manchester because the governments would not recognize Haudenosaunee passports. This delay made it clear that the presence of the Iroquois Nationals at the World Championship in Israel was necessary. By adhering to the Palestine’s request for withdrawal, the Iroquois would miss out on an opportunity to show sovereignty and to stand up against ongoing

colonialism and once again assert pride and honour for their nation. By attending the tournament in Israel, the Iroquois have an opportunity to bring awareness to the Israeli occupation of Palestine and their similar struggles, to be recognized on the world stage and hopefully bring some healing to the land with the medicine game. A few players have opted out from joining the team in Israel, deciding to not be used as propaganda against an occupied people. Elders have voiced their concerns over the presence of the Iroquois Nationals at the tournament as well. Though the team has released statements and communities have shown their support for the Iroquois Nationals, the controversy still lingers over the tournament. There is a great deal of history on both sides of the conversation. The game itself is embedded into history, our history. Someday, maybe, someone will look back on this tournament and only they will be able to judge whether it was right or not to attend the tournament. On July 12, the Iroquois Nationals played their first game of the tournament against the USA, losing 9-17. The tournament will continue to run until this coming Saturday, on July 21.

Status holder’s income situated on reserve

A thorough explanation of income tax exemption involving Indigenous people DEAN BLACKFORD AND KAREN CHEUNG TWO ROW TIMES

Section 81 of the Income Tax Act and section 87 of the Indian Act work together to exempt indigenous people with Indian status from tax on income situated on reserve. But determining when income is situated on reserve is a convoluted task that frequently leads to disputes between status Indians and the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency). In a recent study commissioned by the CRA, indigenous communities identified uncertainty surrounding whether income was considered to be earned on-reserve or off-reserve to be one of the difficulties they face when filing their taxes. In this article, we outline the legal test that the courts use to determine when property is situated on reserve and discuss how the test has been applied in the Tax Court of Canada and the Federal Court of Appeal. Overview of the legal test: what does ‘situated on reserve’ mean? Income earned on reserve between status holders will always be tax-exempt. The uncertainty arises when an element of the income is derived outside the

reserve or as a result of interactions with non-status holders. In such instances, the courts will undertake a two-step analysis to conclude whether the income is situated on reserve. 1. Identify the connecting factors between income and the reserve. These connecting factors include, but are not limited to; the residence of the payer, the residence of the payee, the place of payment, and the location of the activities that resulted in the payment. The courts will look at each factor to determine whether the income was situated on or off reserve. 2. Accord weight to each connecting factor. The courts weight each connecting actor based on the purpose, type of property and nature of taxation. For example, if the payee chooses to receive payment for their product or service on-reserve, the courts will ask why the payee chose this location. If receiving payment on reserve facilitated the payee’s business operations, then the courts will give it more weight. If there was no business purpose underlying the payee’s decision, the courts will give this factor less weight. Once these two steps are complete, the courts will balance all weighted factors to decide whether

the property was situated on reserve. To better understand its application, we consider three cases: Robertson v Canada, Baldwin v Canada and Dickie v Canada. In Robertson (off reserve business, on-reserve intermediary), the court ruled that the business’ income was tax-exempt because the on reserve aspects of the business outweighed the off reserve fishing. One of the business owners was a status holder who lived and fished off-reserve but stored the most of his fishing equipment on reserve. He received his fishing quotas from the Norway House Fisherman’s Cooperative (the Co-Op), located on reserve, but the business used the Co-Op’s off reserve fish packaging stations. These packaging stations were mainly staffed by status holders, most of whom were living on reserve. The courts ultimately decided in favour of the business because the Co-Op was an on reserve institution and played an anchoring role in the business generating its income. In Baldwin (on reserve intermediary, off reserve locations), the taxpayers’ employment income was taxable because it was insufficiently connected to the reserve. The taxpay-

ers were employed by an organization, Native Leasing Services (NLS), located on reserve. NLS would lease the employees to organizations off reserve. The placement company would send NLS the leased employees’ salaries and NLS would pay the employees through its bank account at a branch located on reserve. The fourth found that the true provider of the leased employees’ income were the organizations located off reserve. The employees were already working for the organizations before NLS became involved and they reported to an were supervised by the organizations. In contrast to Robertson, where the court gave more eight to the on reserve Co-Op than the off reserve packaging stations, in Baldwin, the on reserve NLS was given less weight than the off reserve organizations. In Dickie (off reserve locations, on reserve business), the taxpayer’s business income was tax-exempt because its on reserve office played a large role in it generating its business income. The employer taxpayer owned a corporation located on reserve. Similarly to Baldwin, the corporation would send employees to off reserve locations to do work for its off re-

serve clients. The courts held, however, that the head office’s on reserve location outweighed the actual labour being conducted off reserve. Unlike in Baldwin, there was no pre-existing relationship between the business’ employees and the companies to whom they provided service and the business maintained direct supervision over its employees. The three case examples above demonstrate the extent to which the outcomes are determined by the factual nuances. It is therefore unsurprising that status holders continue to report that the issue of on reserve versus off reserve income causes them uncertainty when filing their tax returns. Status holders who

are seeking to have their income considered to be sited on reserve should carefully analyze the potential impact of the off reserve connections that allow them to earn their income. In circumstances whereto CRA has concluded that a status holder’s income is not situated on reserve, the cases above also demonstrate that it is possible to successfully dispute the CRA’s decision.

Indigenous housing providers alarmed by funding review CANADIAN PRESS

editor@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

OTTAWA – Indigenous social housing providers will soon push the federal government to rethink plans to overhaul their funding arrangements because they worry the Liberal proposals could leave thousands of low-income families on the street. Federal officials are set to start consultations on how to spend almost $500 million in the coming years as federal operating agreements expire and a new funding scheme is put in place to subsidize rents. The hope is that hous-

ing providers will shift to new funding models that make them less reliant on federal cash to operate. The issue is also expected to be highlighted to the minister in charge of the file during a planned breakfast meeting this week. Even though Indigenous providers make up a small portion of the social housing covered by the agreements, those in the sector say they are less able to become self-sustaining than their larger counterparts who serve a wider population. Justin Marchand, executive director of Ontario Aboriginal Housing Services, says his organization has been diversifying

revenue sources, but that takes time and is easier for larger providers with the necessary resources and assets. ``It is a difficult task particularly when you're a smaller (housing) provider and you might only have one or two staff,'' Marchand said. ``In principle, we want both ourselves as an organization, other (urban Indigenous housing) providers and the people we serve to be economically self-sufficient, but how we go about doing that, we really need to give some thought to that.'' Indigenous housing providers say what separates them from other social housing is how their

LeBlanc said the protesters aren't asking for money, but want the court to rule that the arrests were illegal. The main grounds of the court application, which is to be heard on Aug. 23, is that the protesters' rights to freedom of expression were unjustifiably infringed on and the arrests were arbitrary. The respondents in the application are listed as the Saskatchewan government, the Provincial Capital Commission and Regina police. The government and the commission have called for the removal of the teepees, because bylaws prohibit overnight camping and burning combustibles in the park. Protesters and the government met July 2. In a letter to protesters following that meeting, the government said it had already taken action on and would continue to take action on many of the group's concerns. Protester Robyn Pitawanakwat said the government's response indicates that it is satisfied with the status quo

and has no intention of making any changes. She said the camp is growing by two to three new families every day as they seek support and reunification with their loved ones. ``Their truths are being denied,'' Pitawanakwat said. ``The response by government indicated that they're already doing everything and they don't need to change what they're doing. ``The stories that are coming in here indicate the exact opposite.'' Fellow protester Prescott Demas said the camp isn't going anywhere and the campers are waiting for a second meeting with the government. Premier Scott Moe said last week that the government hadn't planned to meet with the protesters again. Regina police Chief Evan Bray has previously said that he doesn't believe the camp poses a risk to the public. A police spokeswoman would not comment on the protesters' application.

Protesters outside Saskatchewan legislature taking province to court

TWO ROW TIMES

REGINA – Protesters camped outside the Saskatchewan legislature say they are taking the government to court over six arrests made last month. The people were taken into custody June 18 when Regina police enforced an eviction order. They were never charged and lawyer Dan LeBlanc says he believes the arrests were illegal. ``What we would hope is if the courts indicate what occurred on June 18th unjustifiably interfered with these folks' right to express themselves, then the government will take that under advisement and will be hesitant to take steps to evict them again,'' LeBlanc said Monday. The camp was set up in February to protest racial injustice and the disproportionate number of Indigenous children apprehended by child-welfare workers. It set up again shortly after the protesters were evicted.

funding was set up in the first place decades ago. At the time, they were given deeper resources as an acknowledgment that Indigenous Peoples living in cities and rural towns faced greater financial barriers to cover housing costs, said Marc Maracle, executive director of Gignul Non-Profit Housing Corporation in Ottawa. A report in May from the Indigenous caucus of the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association said that some 118,500 Indigenous households, or 18.3 per cent, lived in ``core housing need,'' meaning they lived in homes that stretched them financially, required hefty repairs, or

were too small for their families. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. reported late last month that some 1.6 million homes, or 13.6 per cent of all urban households, were in core housing need in 2016, a figure relatively unchanged from 2015. Maracle said the only path to fiscal sustainability is to maintain some sort of subsidy while also providing some help to develop more housing that is blended towards market rent to generate more revenue, and plow the extra cash into existing affordable units and ``maintaining a deeper subsidy to the tenants

who need it.'' But the stock of housing is aging for many service providers, making it more expensive for them to convert to higher-cost units that subsidize homes for low-income families. ``For me to (be) sustainable, I'd have to do a lot of upgrades and we're not funded adequately enough to make those upgrades. There's not enough money to do it all,'' said Frances Sanderson, executive director of Nishnawbe Homes in Toronto. She said many Indigenous housing providers would have to fold without the operating agreements, leaving thousands with no place to live.

bison reintroduction zone in Banff National Park's Panther Valley,'' said the statement. ``This ceremony is one of many events that have been held at key milestones in the bison reintroduction project.'' One of the elders going on the trip said that he was happy to participate in another ceremony for the bison. ``Before they brought the buffalo over there, our people blessed the park to welcome the buffalo back to the area,'' said Leroy Little Bear, an elder with the Blood Tribe, or Kainai First Nation, in southern Alberta. ``This is all part of the process of letting the fences down. It's a good followup.'' Elders participated in two previous blessing ceremonies – one on the shores of Banff's Lake Minnewanka in September 2016 and one in Elk Island National Park in January 2017. Sixteen plains bison from Elk Island were reintroduced to Banff the following month. Six bulls and 10 females were

transported in crates by truck and helicopter into a fenced pasture in the remote Panther River Valley, about 40 kilometres north of the town of Banff. Each of the females had calves last spring, which brought the herd to 26 animals. Most of the females are expected to give birth a second time this year, but the calving season has been later than normal. The bison are to be released into a larger 1,200-square-kilometre reintroduction zone on the eastern slopes of the park later this summer. There will be short stretches of fencing to keep the bison from wandering out of the park. Little Bear has also been involved with the Buffalo Treaty, an alliance of groups intent on bringing wild bison – historically known as buffalo to Indigenous people – back to their native habitats as a symbol of First Nations culture. ``The dream of our elders is to have buffalo return any which way,'' he said. ``We're excited about seeing them.''

BANFF – Several Indigenous elders were flown by helicopter into the backcountry of Banff National Park on Monday for a blessing ceremony as officials prepared to let recently reintroduced bison roam free. The trip organized by Parks Canada was part of the overall plan to release the bison into a larger area of the park. The animals disappeared from the region before the national park was created in 1885. No one from Banff National Park was available for an interview, but officials said in a statement that they are committed to recognizing the spiritual, cultural and historical importance of bison to Indigenous people. ``Parks Canada has invited representatives of each Treaty 7 Nation and the Metis Nation of Alberta to participate in a private blessing ceremony on July 16, 2018, at the

CALGARY – The Calgary Stampede says its annual display of Indigenous culture that goes back more than 100 years will no longer be called ``Indian Village.'' On Sunday, the final day of this year's Stampede, officials announced the village of more than two dozen teepees will be renamed Elbow River Camp. Stampede CEO Warren Connell said in a news release that the change was led by the teepee owners with support from the Stampede, noting the owners made the final decision. Michael Meguinis, a spokesman for the owners, said the name ``Indian Village'' never bothered him. But he said it's no longer accepted by some people, so it's time for a change. His wife, Violet, said European visitors were often confused or had trouble with the old name. ``For the international community – and this is an international event – I think it makes people comfortable to say that we're Indigenous and

that's fine with us,'' she said. The village has been a major part of the Calgary Stampede since its inception in 1912. Each of the 26 teepees in this year's camp has a unique design on the outside. The teepee owners are from Treaty 7 Nations of Kainai, Tsuut'ina, Stoney Nakoda, Siksika and Piikani. They live inside their teepees during the Stampede and take turns opening them up to the public for viewing, while showing family artifacts and answering questions about Indigenous culture. Many of the owners are descendents of the people who set up the first village, and a few resisted changing the name. The Stampede noted in its news release that for many of the participants, the old name honoured the relationship of the teepee owners with the Stampede and its founder, Guy Weadick. Michael and Violet Meguinis, who are from Tsuut'ina First Nation southwest of Calgary, explained that when the Calgary Stampede started, the Indian Village was a way for Indigenous people to leave their reserves. At

that time, First Nations people needed permission from a government Indian agent to leave their territory. Part of the reason to change the name now, Michael Meguinis explained, was that the location of the village moved two years ago and teepee owners had been debating new names. The list of suggestions was whittled down to two and a vote was held Tuesday. The name that lost was ``Treaty 7 Camp.'' The Calgary Stampede said that in Dene, Stoney, and Blackfoot the word for Calgary refers to the bend in the Elbow River – the elbow – and that for generations, when teepee-owning families came to the Stampede, they would point to their elbows. ``One of our natural laws is that change is part of this world and we always say Mother Earth is always changing. So this is a change. This is a positive change,'' Violet Meguinis said about the new name. The Calgary Stampede said the name change is effective immediately, and that a closing ceremony for the camp was to be held Sunday afternoon.

CLEARWATER, B.C. – An Indigenous political activist was briefly detained Saturday following a Trans Mountain pipeline protest in British Columbia's North Thompson Provincial Park. Kanahus Manuel, a spokesperson for the activist group Tiny House Warriors, was arrested by the RCMP after allegedly defying an eviction order from the BC Parks service. The group's members belong to the Secwepemc First Nation, which released a statement Saturday afternoon calling Manuel's arrest a ``declaration of war.'' In the release authored by the Secwepemc Women's Warrior Society, Manuel is referred to as a political prisoner of ``the white supremacist RCMP and Park Ranger goons of the Canadian state,'' whom they said are intent on forcing the Tiny House Warriors from lands the Secwepemc consider ancestral territories. The statement adds the

territories were never surrendered to a Canadian government. Dawn Roberts with the B.C. RCMP said members went to North Thompson Provincial Park to meet with the protesters and discuss the eviction notice. She said the liaison team continued to have conversations with protesters after the arrest, and the remaining protesters began to pack up the tiny houses they'd built. ``Those discussions were extremely positive, very respectful, very understanding,'' said Roberts. Snutetkwe Manuel said her sister has been charged with mischief after the group refused to leave the park, although Roberts did not confirm that formal charges have been filed. An RCMP statement said Manuel was released from custody on Saturday on a series of conditions and a promise to appear in court at a later date. Additional members of the protest were told they could leave the park on their own or be arrested themselves. Manuel said the RCMP and BC Parks service have no jurisdiction in

the park. ``This is a Secwepemc village site. Our people died of small pox here,'' she said. Manuel recorded and posted a video to her Facebook page of a conversation with two RCMP officers who stopped her from entering the campsite, which she said was to help her mother pack up. The protest began as a three-day tattooing ceremony running from July 6 to 9 and grew into a Trans Mountain blockade by July 11. Roberts said that she did not know precisely why the eviction order was filed by BC Parks, but did say the tattooing ceremony forced the closure of the park and cancelled reservations for campers. Kanahus Manuel responded earlier this week, saying her people have been inconvenienced by colonialism for over 150 years. ``We were moved off of our lands. There are internationally protected rights which (say) Indigenous people can use and exclusively occupy their lands to maintain our culture, our language and our ways,'' said Manuel.

BC allows Indigenous cannabis production VANCOUVER — Local and Indigenous governments in British Columbia will be permitted to prevent marijuana production in their communities on land that is part of the Agricultural Land Reserve, but with conditions. The Ministry of Agriculture said Friday the regulatory change is effective immediately and gives

governments the right to prevent industrial-style, cement-based and cannabis-production bunkers in their communities. However, the ministry said pot production can't be prohibited if it's grown lawfully in an open field, in a structure that is soil based, or in an existing licensed operation.

``It's not everything we were wanting, I don't think. It's a start,'' said Delta Mayor Lois Jackson, who has been outspoken against marijuana growing operations on the land reserve in her city. The Agricultural Land Reserve, or ALR, is a provincial designation that covers about 46,000 square kilometres in

B.C. where agriculture is recognized as the priority use. Farming is encouraged and non-agricultural uses are restricted. The changes pertain only to land within the reserve, because local governments can already regulate or prohibit pot production on lands outside the reserve.

Play condemned for excluding Indigenous actors MONTREAL — Quebec director Robert Lepage is once again being criticized for a lack of representation in one of his stage shows. About 30 people signed an open letter in Le Devoir today to denounce Lepage for not including Indigenous performers in his upcoming show ``Kanata.'' The show, which claims to explore Canada's history through the lens of the relationship between white and Aboriginal people, will be performed in Paris by a French acting

group in December. The letter's signatories note that while Indigenous people were consulted during the show's creation, the performance will not include any indignenous actors. They add that their goal isn't to censor anyone, but rather to call for the talents of Indigenous artists to be recognized. The letter is signed by about 20 Indigenous artists and activists as well as a dozen or so non-Indigenous ``allies,'' that include lawyers, artists and academics.

THUNDER BAY — Officials are calling an assault on a First Nations man earlier this week in Thunder Bay, Ont., a hate crime. Thunder Bay police say the 52-year-old man was taken to hospital for treatment after he was found injured near a bus terminal on Wednesday night. Police said Friday they would not comment further as the investigation was ongoing. In a statement released Thursday, Mayor Keith Hobbs condemned the incident and pictures posted to social media showing the bloodied victim. Hobbs says ``violence,

hate crimes, discriminatory attitudes and actions are unacceptable in our community.'' In a Facebook post, Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day called it racism and ``hate at its most vicious,'' adding that the political response to such hatred hasn't done a thing so far. ``Our people need help,'' Day wrote. ``Leadership needs to step the hell up and do something. This man has a right to safety, dignity and a right to justice.'' Hobbs encouraged everyone to report hate crimes and stand up to racism.

ASHEVILLE, NC — A North Carolina car dealership has taken down a 23foot fiberglass statue of a Native American that has drawn complaints over its 50-year history. The Asheville Citizen Times reports that Harry's On the Hill was prompted to take down the statue known as ``Chief Pontiac'' partly because of a bad experience by a female customer who's a member of the

Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. The newspaper said an employee was fired after sending an offensive text message to the customer in June. Even before that, some Native Americans had complained about the statue. The statue was removed Friday with a crane. It's being donated to the Pontiac-Oakland Transportation Museum in Michigan.

SIX NATIONS — While braving the heat for this past weekend, the very first Homestyle Pickin’ Bluegrass Jam commenced on Second Line featuring bluegrass bands and jamming musicians for a two-day event. Over 200 bluegrass, country and gospel fans came in throughout the weekend to appreciate the sound of music outdoors. Bits of Bluegrass, The Nelson Family Band, Tuxedo Bluegrass Boys, Wayne Johnson and Tay Greene from a Note in Tyme and Joe Roher of Rhyme -n- Reason offered the best in live sound. Bluegrass itself as a genre seemed to develop the most in 1945, which many listeners know as the time of classic bluegrass, with high harmonies, banjo, harmonica, accordion, guitar, fiddle and more. The sound is closer to folk music rather than country and the string instruments

include a lot more quick handiwork. Bits of Bluegrass musicians including Doug Moerschfelder, Greg Street, Don Couchie, and Hosts Hub and Robin Maracle opened the day for visitors to enjoy, as Robin Maracle explained that she and a sponsor worked together to come up with the event. “We just thought we’d get something going because we know that the elders love music,” said Maracle. “We used to go into the [Iroquois Lodge] and play quite a bit. I would even like to see a van of them come out some day for a couple of hours and enjoy that because it’s something different to do.” And in the future they would definitely be able to as Maracle hopes to host the event annually with elders as a part of the target audience. She included that the event itself offers opportunity for the musicians. “There aren’t too many places that you can find home style picking jams, and that’s what I wanted to call it,” she

said. “There are festivals, but at those festivals you pay $45 or $50 dollars to get in just like any concert and then there’s a lineup. But with what we had here, there wasn’t a lineup, so as an artist you can sit anywhere you want to and just play. Even while groups or bands play you could be sitting with a group at a fire or whatever you want.” And their intention with the event wasn’t just to offer hard-to-find live

music. “We’re hoping that this will get bigger because we have a lot of room for campers at some point,” she said. “Our purpose is just to keep bluegrass growing,” With as far away as some festivals are, Hub Maracle said that they wanted local musicians to enjoy themselves closer to home. “We wanted to give the musicians a place to play and community members a place to come and hear

the music, because it is hard to find this kind of music,” he said. “A lot of the musicians that came here were bluegrass musicians, but there were other kinds as well including acoustic and country.” And just as his wife already said, they simply want the genre and the event to grow. “We’re going to try to have it every year and hopefully it will grow,” he said. “And even after

everybody played up on the stage they gathered under the tents and just sat around and played together.” Maracle said that the response from the musicians was incredible and both hosts are thankful to those that came out. Both of the Maracles wanted to offer their appreciation to their sponsors – Willy’s World, Stan Jonathan and Nancy’s Gas and Variety – and hope that next year's jam will be even better.

The title of the collection is Tunirrusiangit, meaning “what they gave us” in Innuktitut, as Ashevak’s vivid prints and drawings will blend with Pitsulak’s pencil drawings depicting northern wildlife. Ashevak is known as the “grandmother of Inuit art” and is famous for the storytelling in her craft. Pitsulak was heavily

Team Iroquois always get extra attention at the World Men’s Lacrosse Championships held this year in Israel. Players and lacrosse fans around the world recognize the Haudenosaunee as the originators of what they call, “Creators Game.” Early French missionaries saw that the sticks they used in this strange game were shaped like Bishops crooks, giving it the name “lacrosse”. This year there was extra drama after the Iroquois Nationals were not allowed to board the jet in Toronto bound for Netanya, Israel. After some very high level intervention from both Canada and Israel,

they were finally allowed to catch a flight the next day and arrived just in time to find their rooms and make it back to the main stadium for the opening ceremony. Then they had to get ready for Game no.1 later that evening against one of the favourites to win it all this year, team USA. The Iroquois looked non-the-worst-for-wear in the first half, controlling the flow of play and taking a 3-0 lead before Team USA got started. Team Iroquois stayed tight with the strong Americans for most of the game until fatigue began to finally take its tole on a very busy and disjointed day. The Americans came on late in the game to take advantage, building up a 17-9, Game no.1 final

score for Team USA. The Iroquois took it all in stride. “This logo right here means everything to my people and to me,” Tehoka Nanticoke said in a post-game interview. “We could have sat in the airport for another day, and still. Traveling on our own passport and playing in front of the world means a lot to me.” The Iroquois Nationals got win number one under their belts against England 18-7, after a good night sleep. They slept in a little too long however, spotting England three goals before getting their own engine started. Once the I-Nat began to roll, they left England behind wondering what just happened. “The Iroquois are playing the game they’ve played their whole lives”

said Mark Donahue, an editor and writer at Lacrosse All-Stars. Game no.3 for the I-Nats was a rematch of the 2014 bronze-medal game, and the outcome was the same with the Iroquois Nationals defeating Australia, 16-9. The first half finished in a 7-7 tie. Several streaks were witnessed in the first half with Nigel Morton starting a threegoal streak for an early Australia 3-0 lead. The Iroquois Nationals’ Ty Thompson highlighted a four-goal run to have a 4-3 advantage. The game volleyed back and forth in the second quarter. The second half belonged to the Iroquois Nationals who went on a 9-2 run, with six goals being split between Lyle and cousin Ty Thompson evenly.

The leading scorers for the Iroquois Nationals were Ty Thompson with five goals, Randy Staats with four goals, and Lyle Thompson with three goals. Australia was paced by Morton’s three goals and Mitchell Kennedy’s two. “It’s unreal,” said Iroquois attackman Lyle Thompson of his team’s stick skills. “Our offense is run through basically eight attackmen. People look at me and think I have a creative stick, but with some of these guys, it’s an extension of their body.

Game no.4 saw the Iroquois do battle with the powerhouse Canadians. Canada had just lost it’s crucial game against the USA and the Iroquois were riding high on their second win of the the tournament against Australia. Most players on the the defending Gold Medalist and those representing the Haudenosaunee Iroquois Nation know each other very well, having played either alongside or against each other in other leagues, but this is the big nut. This is the World Lacrosse Championship with 46 countries represented. The Iroquois loss brings the record to 2-2 in pool play. Canada is now 3-1. The I-Nats will next face Scotland in Blue Division play, Tuesday night, July 17.

TWO ROW TIMES

SIX NATIONS — Last season at around this time, the Six Nations Rebels, who had a great regular season and favourites to retake the Founders Cup, suddenly collapsed in the playoffs against the Orangeville Northmen., who went on to win the National Jr. B title. But the Six Nations Rebels dispatched the 2017 Founders Cup winning Orangeville Northman in three straight games completing the task Friday night at the ILA with an 11-7 Game no. 3 victory. The Rebels completed the second sweep on the post season, after blowing through the St. Catharines Spartans in three straight games. They await the winners of the Elora Mohawks and the Wallaceburg Red Devils series to determine who is next in the Rebels’ quest to return the Founders Cup to Six Nations. The Rebels owned the Cup from 2011 to 2014 before Akwesasne won it in 2015. This year, the Rebels are a young and exciting team to watch and are the hands-on favourites to earn another shot at the Founders Cup but will have to get by either Elora or Wallaceburg for the Divisional title. Meanwhile

in the East, the Akwesasne Mohawks and play for the Colby Hancock Memorial Trophy after defeating the Oakville Buzz in three. They will likely be facing the Green Gaels who lead their series against the Kahnawake 2-0 as of Saturday. The Rebels opened the series against the defending champs 9-6. In Game no.2 the Rebs took an 18-10 decision and Friday the 13th proved to be bad luck for the Northmen as the Rebels pushed aside Orangeville, 11-7. The Rebels took a 4-1 first period lead and rode it to the win on the strength of the Rebels powerplay unit which was good on four of five powerplay opportunities. Meanwhile the Northmen had twice as many chanc-

es at 10 powerplay opportunities which produced four powerplay goals. The Northmen pushed back hard in the second period. After Riley Miller and Bo Peltier scored to begin the second period Orangeville’s Grayson Houghton exploded with four goals, three of them on power plays. Chayton King interrupted Houghton’s outburst but the Rebels still held a 7-5 two period lead. The Rebels turned it on again in the third starting with Riley Miller’s powerplay goal at 2:47 from Khan General and Wes Whitlow. Bo Peltier and two by Wes Whitlow left the Northmen in the dust at 11-5. Two late game extra-player goals brought it closer but in the end, the Northmen were

vanquished by the Rebels. Chayton King led the Rebels with three goals and an assist, and Wes Whitlow added two goals and four assists. Daniel Hill earned the win in the Rebels goal.

SIX NATIONS — Last Tuesday, July 10, the Major Series Six Nations Chiefs took on the Brampton Excelsiors at the ILA and completed the comeback they came so close to accomplishing the night before in Oakville. The Chiefs tripped over the starting line and fell behind 3-0 to the Excelsiors by the 7:14 mark when Frank Brown caught a break and scored Six Nations first goal, unassisted. From there, the Chiefs and Excelsiors swapped goals but the opening Brampton barrage helped Brampton hold a 5-3 first period lead. Cody Jamieson and Randy Staats accounted for the other Chiefs goals. The second period began and ended with Brampton goals, but the Chiefs Jordan Durston,

Kyle Jackson, and Randy Staats were able to wedge three in between to end the second period with Brampton still leading 7-6. Brampton took the early momentum in the third period extending their lead to 9-6 but the Chiefs were not ready to let that stand and mounted one of themes exciting comebacks of the season so far. The Chiefs power forwards suddenly exploded starting with Staats’ third of the game, followed close thereafter by two Jordan Durston goals and Cody Jamieson’s second to complete the 10-9 win. They were also two-forthree on the powerplay.. Angus Goodleaf started in goal for the Chiefs but was replaced after 11 minutes by Warren Hill who went the distance for the win. The Chiefs will have a week off and next see action Tuesday night, at home against the Peterborough Lakers.

Monday night, Brantford hosted Six Nations for Game no.3 and took a 2-1 advantage in games after Brantford nosed out Six Nations 11-10. The Six Nations Warriors took a 4-2 first period lead but could not keep

the pressure on Brantford who chipped away outscoring Six Nations 3-2 in the period for a two-period score of 6-5 for Six Nations. Brantford got a second wind of energy and commanded the third period out-scoring Six Nations 5-3 for a 10-9 Brantford victory.

Hopes are high for defending champions

Six Nations Girls Intermediate Warriors earn bronze at Summer Shoot Out Tournament CHEZNEY MARTIN

TWO ROW TIMES

SIX NATIONS — As they earned bronze in the Summer Shoot Out Tournament hosted by Six Nations Minor Lacrosse two weeks ago, the Six Nations Girls Intermediate Warriors are likely headed to provincials as defending ‘A’ champions. An interview with current Team Captain Fawn Porter, who has played since the age of eight and has experience in both boys and girls lacrosse, shed some light upon the dynamics of the team overall. Porter said that she felt that the winning games during the tournament were well earned and that she got to see more from her teammates. “I seen a lot of different teammates connecting on the floor,” said Porter. “Although we were hoping to go for the gold medal game for our own tournament, we still feel proud of our accomplishment and feel like we got a good feeling of our competi-

tion.” But overtime the league itself has evolved and Porter noted that it has changed “immensely,” and that the “competition is rising.” “I see so much more skill out on the floor nowadays,” she said. “Every team is kind of on the same page this year with skill level, but the skill level is higher than its

ever been. There are more accurate shooters and more plays being made and read — it’s not just offence and defence games anymore. I love it.” But as she loves the increasing skill level, she explained that she believes that her team will need to focus on connecting on the floor as well as getting their fitness levels higher because they will likely be

kept in the ‘A’ division. “And we will again shoot for the championship,” she said. “The competition is tough but I feel that we have a good shot this year, we just have to want it.” With the regular season finalized, Porter made note of the newer members that have moved up to replace the graduated veterans and how well

they have fit the team. Their contributions to the team as rookies are a part of her best memory of the season. “My best memory so far in this season was seeing my newest team members learning how to catch and throw, and how they manage to catch up to everyone on the team,” she said. “I just remember that

OAKVILLE — You couldn’t script the climax of the Sr. B lacrosse season any better than a first place showdown between the Oakville Titans and the Six Nations Rivermen in the last game of the regular schedule to determine who will face whom in the playoffs. But it’s more than just a pride thing — it’s a matter of carrying momentum heading into the playoffs as everyone eyes-up the Presidents Cup. Saturday night, the Six Rivermen had a chance to take over sole possession of first place on the road with a win over the third place Brooklin Merchants, but fell short, 13-9 setting up the all important final showdown of the regular season on Sunday against the Titans. The Merchants were much more ready to play

than the Rivermen who fell behind 4-0 before Wayne Hill broke the bubble from Wayne VanEvery and Greg Longboat at 15:18. Joe Maracle cut deeper into the Merchants’ lead exactly one minute later and it was 4-2 for the home team. Dylan Goddard scored his third goal of the first period for Brooklin to take a 5-2 lead into the dressing room.

But Goddard wasn’t finished. He opened the second period at 30 seconds for a 6-2 Brooklin lead. Danton Miller broke the Brooklin string but only temporarily as they closed the second period with the last three of the session, for a 9-3 Merchants lead after 40 minutes. Greg Longboat scored first in the final period and it was 9-4. Then 10-4 with Austin Murphy’s

goal. VanEvery scored at the five minute mark, but the Merchants responded twice for a 12-5 lead with five minutes remaining. Rodd Squire and Longboat scored two quick goals to make it 12-8, but Brooklin interrupted Six Nations comeback attempt and it was 13-8. Canton Miller records the last Rivermen goal for the 13-9 final. The tension was evident

going into Sunday’s final showdown of the regular season at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre in Oakville to determine sole ownership of the league regular season title. It didn’t take long before the Rivermen served notice with Brendan Muise scoring first at the 52 second mark of the first period. The Titans did not respond until 5:17 when Josh Jubenville evened the score at 1-1.

one game was against a harder team and they both were right in there in all the battles in the corner And at the draw. It was just crazy to see how fast they came along.” As representatives of Six Nations, they are each hoped to represent and perform to the best of their abilities at the provincial level next month. Kyle Isaacs and Greg Longboat put the Rivermen up 4-2, but Oakville clawed one of those back late in the frame to close the Six Nations lead to 4-3. Oakville evened the score again at 2:50 before Wayne VanEvery restored the slim one goal lead at 5-4. Brandon Slade tied it again but Brendan Muise would not stand for that and took back the lead 35 seconds later. Kyle Isaccs and VanEvery added late period goals to take a 8-5 lead into the third period. Oakville still had a lot of gas in the tank and it would appear the Rivermen didn’t as Oakville controlled the last 20 minutes of the game. Seven uncontested Oakville goals opened the third period, reversing an 8-6 Six Nations lead into a 12-8 Oakville Titans lead. Danton Miller scored the Rivermen’s last goal of the game and Brandon Slade ended the contest with a 13-9 Oakville win.

SIX NATIONS — It was a brief appearance in the OJALL playoffs for the Six Nations Arrows this year. Six Nations lost in three straight games to the St. Catharines Athletics.

The Athletics and Arrows started the playoffs last Wednesday, July 11th, at the Jack Gatecliff Rink, with an 8-7 squeaker that went the right way for the “A’s”. The next night, Thursday, July 12th at the ILA, the Arrows were inexplicable, as flat as they have ever been this season

The “Chase the Ace” game is simple. People buy tickets to get a chance to pick a playing

card at random. If that card is not an ace, the game continues next week and the pot progresses until someone draws the ace and will win the Jackpot. But all the while SNMLA is also winning. Weekly winners names are posted at the arenas and Bomberry is hopeful it will be the kind of success they have seen in Wikki.

TORONTO — The North American Indigenous Masters Games is new this year and is dedicated to older Indigenous athletes who still enjoy the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. “Sheryl Bomberry heard about the 41-andup category and she enrolled the team,” recalls Michell Bomberry. “We hadn’t played in 15 to 20 years!” Despite the rust, the Storm won their first game 2-1, Friday, they beat Northern Ontario 14-1 and crushed AOK 13-1 for a trip to the medal round. They faced what they called the Dream Team, made up of fastball talent from throughout Indian Country in the final game and beat them 8-6 for the gold medal. They also qualified in another Masters category and earned gold there too for a highly productive games. According to the official statement: “The purpose of the Masters’ Games is to provide Indigenous adults aged 20 years and older the opportunity to compete against their peers in a variety of contemporary and traditional sporting activities. For Indigenous adults, the Masters’ Indigenous Games are an opportunity to get physically active, engage with community and participate in competition. These games will bring together hundreds of athletes from across North America to compete in sport competitions, celebrate Indigenous wellness and the Indigenous cultures of Turtle Island. Not only are the games an

The game is called “Chase the Ace” an idea Bomberry got from a team she met in Wiki. “They used it for lil NHL fund raising and got more than they needed so they gave that back into the community,’ said Bomberry. One of the goals of SNMLA this year is to address a need for more floor time. She is hoping to find a way of taking over the outdoor ball-hockey rink beside

opportunity for Indigenous athletes to compete, it presents an opportunity for North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) alumni to reunite with past teammates, competitors and friends. In addition to the various sport competitions, the Masters Games will provide all participants and attendees with a safe and excellent opportunity to celebrate and promote the various cultures of Indigenous peoples worldwide. A cultural festival showcasing Indigenous artists, performers, storytellers and vendors will be taking place, as well as the Embody the Spirit Powwow. The Masters’ Indigenous Games is expected to be the cultural event of the summer for Toronto. The Masters Indigenous Games are made possible due to the determination and commitment from the official Provincial/Territorial Aboriginal Sporting Body for Ontario, The Aboriginal Sport and Wellness Council of Ontario

(ASWCO). ASWCO believes that sport and culture have the power to change lives, improve wellness, and provide opportunities for personal growth and community development. They are an organization that is dedicated to the wellness of Indigenous Peoples across Ontario, through programs that promote sport, recreation, physical literacy and land-based learning. ASWCO promotes healthy living and offers training, certifications and support for coaches, athletes, and similar organizations and serves all Indigenous Peoples and communities across the province of Ontario, including First Nations, Inuit and Metis, living on and off-reserve. The mission of ASWCO is to ‘enhance the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, cultural and social well-being of Aboriginal peoples in Ontario through physical activity, recreation and sports activities.”
