’What kind of leadership should we have?’ Six Nations Youth Council looking for feedback Inclusivity, diversity and culture the centre of SNYC’s ongoing youth advocacy work NAHNDA GARLOW
TWO ROW TIMES
SIX NATIONS — Six Nations Youth Council (SNYC) will be surveying guests at the Indigenous People’s Day celebration in Ohsweken on Friday — looking for feedback on what the community’s youth want in their community leaders. SNYC members Felecia White and Dean Hill spoke with TRT and said the council members are inviting youth in the community to have their voices and concerns heard during a roundtable discussion in the Dajoh Youth and Elders Centre in Ohsweken during Friday’s festivities. “Our main questions right now are about leadership. Our first question is asking what their definition of leadership is — if they are seeing that — and if not what they want to see in our community
for youth leadership. Do they want youth more in leadership do they want elders more? Rather than telling them what’s going to happen I want to ask them what they want to happen,” said Hill. White says those youth interested in giving feedback can complete the surveys and bring them into the SNYC roundtable discussions inside Dajoh for more information. Completed surveys will also be entered into a draw for an iPad. The SNYC is currently about 25 members ranging in age from 10 years old up to 29. “We’re a grassroots organization providing a voice for our youth that helps navigate toward impacts that are happening in our community as well.” said White. “Our portfolios are based around the medicine wheel and then within those categories we break them down into four sections: Emotional looks at emotional regu-
lation and mental health including LGBTQ matters; Intellectual, with education and knowledge; Spiritual includes language and culture and Physical looks at health and fitness with nutrition and the environment”. White says the hope of the youth council is to expand and incorporate issues that all council members are passionate about with a focus on inclusivity. Hill says the council members focus on advocacy for the subjects they are focused on. “We’re trying to figure out here what is most important to the youth down here right now and then cater to that and well slowly build onto each one of those aspects,” said Hill. “Right now we’re taking an advocate route where we’re taking in all the information that the youth are giving us and we can create a plan based off that information.” “Our original plan was to be as inclusive as possi-
ble so that we can get other input to see what our youth wanted in a youth council so we can use that toward bettering our community,” said White. To date the youth council has worked with the Community Plan team to assist in getting feedback from the young people for what kind of future they see for Six Nations as well as addressing current needs. They were also involved in planning and hosting the ReconciliACTION Anti-Racism Symposium in 2018. Hill said he joined the youth council because of a passion for leading change in the areas of health and fitness. “We need healthier eating,” said Hill. “Various chronic diseases among our members like Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease is very rampant down here. I know to target those two things definitely starts with the way we eat down here and physical fitness in general to build a more healthy
populace.” White says mental health concerns in young people is what brought her out to advocate with the youth council. “I recently did a documentary called not one more on youth suicide in our community and from there it really got an attachment with mental health supports and emotional regulation. I did presentations in school with my mom and health services that actually touched on the emotional regulation portion and helping youth identify their emotions before responding with them.” White identifies as a member of the LBGTQIA community and said that it was her personal discovery of her identity that also led her to advocate for inclusivity at Six Nations. “It’s not something I talked about with my friends. I realized that nobody among my friends wanted to talk about it,
nobody wanted to discuss it, nobody even wanted to know about it. I wanted to find a way for me to feel comfortable — and then on top of that I wanted to find a way for our youth to feel comfortable because I have cousins, little siblings and little cousins and they have these same feelings but they don’t have a place to feel like they belong,” said White.“I wanted to be able to provide an outlet for our youth as well not just within my family but for our other youth to have that outlet for acceptance.” SNYC will be at the Six Nations Indigenous People’s Day festival in Ohsweken at the Six Nations Fairgrounds on Friday. The event begins at noon. For more information on the group’s roundtable discussions or surveys you can email email@example.com or check out the group Six Nations Youth Council SNYC on Facebook.

Just how Canadian are the Raptors By Chezney Martin Earlier this week on Monday, the Toronto Raptors rode through hundreds of thousands of fans during their championship parade atop a double-decker bus. Enormous crowds of people lined the streets and packed Nathan Phillips Square next to City Hall to watch the team hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy after winning the NBA Finals last week. The city was celebrating the Raptors first eastern conference championship and first major championship in more than 20 years. And very quickly the win became a win for “Canada.” Headlines read “Canadian victory” after words like historic and monumental. The truth is that the Raptors are the only professional basketball team in the league that is based out of Canada. That is fact. But another fact is that one of the faces of the Raptors win, Kawhi Leonard, is American. In July of 2018, it was released that upon negotiations of trading Leonard for DeMar DeRozan with the Spurs, Leonard had no desire to play in Toronto. Kyle Lowry, another fan favourite, is also American and was born in Philadelphia. So taking a look at the Raptors 20182019 listing, it’s very easy to notice that out of the entire roster, none are listed as Canadian. A talent scout was reported saying that “Canada's first-ever NBA title will change the tone around basketball from coast to coast.” What is hindering about that statement is that the scout is saying that a team comprised of American players will change the tone for Canada as well. But what about Canadian basketball players? Looking at a listing online finds that there are only 13 in the NBA and none of them play for Toronto. Thus, Canada is taking credit for the efforts of athletes that aren’t Canadian. So rather than labelling the Raptors victory as “Canadian,” it should be labelled as a triumph for the only franchise that is based out of Canada. Maybe the credit should also go directly to the players as individual athletes that worked together and brought themselves to the word stage through sheer determination and physical
prowess at their sport. Maybe the higher ups that offered contracts to those athletes to sign with Toronto to create a killer line up should get a little recognition too. Many of the men that have flourished in the NBA are also men of colour. And they are men of colour that have worked hard and stuck to a grind that not many can in the athletics world, as they are statistically more likely to have started out with a direct disadvantage. Leonard’s mom, Kim Robertson, had to work during his freshman basketball tryouts at California’s Canyon Springs High School. So he missed the session and the school’s coach refused to let him on the team. He later found an AAU coach and mentor in Marvin Lea and transferred to Riverside’s Martin Luther King High School. He committed himself to basketball and earned a scholarship to San Diego State and bypassed the blue-chip programs that came after him later in the process. However, Leonard’s dad, Mark Leonard, was murdered in 2008 at his car wash in Compton, California. His father was working at the car wash he owned and was trying to finish early to watch his son play basketball when the tragedy occurred. Leonard was just 17 and now throughout the accolades he has since received for his performance in basketball, BR Magazine released that he lives very humbly, with his eyes not on money but on his goals. This “Canadian” labelling seems to bleed into everything that will make headlines. Even when an indigenous person living on this side of the border does anything exceptionally worth of recognition or award-winning, they are often labelled as “Canadian indigenous.” This gives the impression that Canada doesn’t and won’t outwardly mark anything or anyone as one of their own unless it makes the country look good. The country does this probably for the same reason that it hardly recognizes any of its blemishes. And as indigenous people know all too well, Canada has many. Let’s not forget how long it took the prime minister, who also sat on stage at the Raptors parade culmination, to use the word “genocide” in regards to MMIW.

Feature Column: Thunder Woman Speaks
Canadians can learn from Indigenous systems that recognized the power of the women By Rachel A. Snow The release of the final report of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) Inquiry has unleashed opposing views hijacked by the use of the term genocide. What is in the word genocide? Is the harm only contained in the carefully crafted and acceptable parameters found within mainstream whiteman made legal terms? Or can we define genocide as what we think of, immediately – the killing of a people. Genocide does not have to be viewed in the compartmentalized blinder-on fashion suggested by mainstream Canada. It can actually be seen in the history of the marginalization of Indigenous people in Canada - with specific attention to women. When the original settlers came to this land, did they bring women? Did the European settlers bring with them an understanding of the role of women? Well, the first settlers certainly were not women, and there are no reports of women accompanying Columbus et al. This is probably because in fifteenth century Europe, there was a clear understanding of the role of women. Women, in the settlers’ world, were inferior.
Women were unable to inherit or own property. In fact women were considered to be the property of their husbands. The first colonists arrived with this stereotypical view of women when they stumbled onto the territory now called Canada. Imagine the early settler surprise! They came upon a land of thriving people who were tall, healthy, spiritual, organized and where the role of women balanced the men for Indigenous people. Early settlers had no way of understanding that leadership could be found in highly complex systems that included matriarchal powers or the spiritual guidance of powerful medicine women. The early settlers saw camps where men came forward because then, Indigenous men went first to protect the children, the women, the elders and their way of life. With the strength of our Indigenous men clearly visible, first settler colonizers assumed that these powerful warriors ruled by force, with individualistic agendas. The early colonizers had no idea that leadership could be vested in the role of women. The early settlers could not see a society where grandmothers selected leadership. Early settler white males did not understand that our women owned the teepee, home
or living structure. Canadian systems have evolved based on primarily white male-driven institutions from their countries of origin. With this background, did the original settlers or their subsequent governments understand that the Indigenous systems were functioning differently? Countless reports, inquiries, studies and other works have been done with a colonial lens to understand “the Indian problem.” However, if there is a premise or threshold argument grounded in a white male paternalistic thinking, how can this approach ever solve problems where women are an integral part of the system? We must consider this carefully since evidence points to these very processes, institutions, and approaches as being the actual problem. We know that colonial policies of Indian removal, starvation and subjugation are the root behind current Indigenous-inherited poverty and trauma. But if you listen carefully to the narrative in mainstream media covering the MMIWG report, this clash of viewpoints is not newsworthy. We have entered into a debate of what currently constitutes “genocide”. Countless white male voices are asserting that “things may have hap-
pened in the past” but the definition of genocide remains the outright killing of individuals. Media talking heads are trying to downplay the term by calling the treatment of Indigenous women, a tragedy or “its own thing,” instead of recognizing it as a violation of human rights. So let’s look at this definition of genocide. Are First Nations currently fighting on the front lines or in courts to defend the last pieces of their lands, waters and territories from whiteman made encroachment through development? Yes. Do these First Nations have histories of tainted water, higher rates of cancer or mercury poisoning and hampered access to traditional or culturally relevant foods and plants? Yes. Do Canada’s own statistics reflect higher Indigenous suicides and lower Indigenous living standards? Yes. If you look through an Indigenous lens at the policies, legislations, court decisions, and institutions that dictate the lives of the Indigenous people on their own lands, you will see active, prolonged instruments of genocide applied everyday. Is it genocide to remove children from homes breaking the kinship, parenting and educations system that had existed pre-contact, while inflicting mental trauma and abuse
both sexual and physical? Yes. Was it genocide to use germ warfare with smallpox blankets to obliterate a people who were blocking settler access in the west? Yes. Is it genocide to have used native children for nutrition experiments, or subjected these same children to electric chairs in residential schools? Is it a genocidal action to sterilize women? Yes. Are these collective policies so ancient that today, the Indigenous have no living memory of these attacks? No. The Indigenous people carry the blood memory, words in our languages and the knowledge through oral history of these acts to kill our people. It is because of this lived experience that we understand the intent within similar policies or legislations that will continue this obliteration of who we are as Indigenous peoples. Evidence of crimes against Indigenous humanity happened because the initial settlers followed the doctrine of discovery thinking. They did not see the beauty in the women who held the backbone of each of our camps in place. They did not see the long line of grandmothers, who doctored, taught and guided the community back to the Creation stories. They did not see the women
who were warriors or the acceptance of LGBQT2 people in Indigenous societies. This has been the genocide. In a country where white men make the laws, interpret and apply the laws; can they see they have destroyed the Indigenous women’s role and voice in true indigenous governance and self-determining systems? Can they see that the very nature of their whiteman made systems have killed the equality of women in our Indigenous societies? If whitemen cannot acknowledge the worth and equality of white women; is it then willful blindness that prevents them from seeing, understanding or accepting that First Nations elevated their women recognizing their inherent power? Has there ever been a true understanding of the Indigenous nations that existed pre-colonization? If there is no true understanding, then there is no reconciliation. Canadians can learn from Indigenous systems that recognized the power of the women. Canada’s white patriarchy will not discuss threats to power and control. Instead, they build systems that continue to undermine, marginalize and kill Indigenous women. That is genocide.

OHSWEKEN — Six Nations Elected Council held a General Council meeting on June 18 and discussed several expense related decisions surrounding community building and infrastructure. SNEC approved $20,902.65 to replace the flow meter and sump pump at the East End Pump Station. Funds came from the Six Nations Public Works Reserve Funds and Clean Water and Wastewater Funds. Funding was approved for a new air conditioning unit at 37 Sunrise Court. The chiller cost is $67975.00 and was contracted to Carrier Corporation.
SNEC discussed a recommendation from the Building and Infrastructure Committee to increase the maximum loan amount through the Six Nations Housing program to $250,000 from $200,000 and also increasing the Renovations/ Repairs loan amount to $75,000 from $50,000. Councillor Carl Hill said there are currently 297 people waiting on the housing list, down from over 800 people. Councillor Helen Miller said the reduction in the list was not people that successfully built homes but several citizens who lost eligibility to access housing dollars because they didn’t qualify due to bad credit, low income or did not own property when their names came

Trans Mountain pipeline expansion gets second green light from Ottawa CANADIAN PRESS
TWO ROW TIMES
OTTAWA â€” The federal Liberal government is giving the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion a second lease on life. ``Today I'm announcing that our government has approved the Trans Mountain expansion project going forward,'' Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a news conference in Ottawa after markets closed Tuesday. ``This is a new decision. The company plans to have shovels in the ground this construction season.'' The decision to reapprove the project comes nine months after the Federal Court of Appeal ripped up the original federal approval, citing incomplete Indigenous consultations and a faulty environmental review. Trudeau says the court said the government needed to better. ``And you know what?''
Trudeau said. ``They were right.'' The Liberals ordered the National Energy Board to look at marine shipping impacts; Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi started another round of consultations with Indigenous communities affected by the project. Tuesday's decision also comes the day after the Liberals passed a motion in the House of Commons declaring climate change a national emergency that would require more cuts to emissions than have already been promised. In 2016, the National Energy Board said the production of another 590,000 barrels of oil, which would maximize the twinned pipeline's capacity, could generate 1417 million more tonnes of greenhouse gases each year, which means Canada would have to find ways to cut more from other sectors to meet and then exceed its current targets. Trudeau says he is sympathetic to concerns
about the environment and the need to transition to cleaner sources of energy, but says that in order to fund that transition, Canada needs to take advantage of its natural resources while they are still needed. ``The policies of the last century will not serve Canadians in this one,'' he said. The government has accepted the 156 conditions the National Energy Board put on the project approval, but is amending six of them to include requiring Indigenous communities to be involved in developing marine emergency response plans, mitigating potential impacts on sacred sites, and Indigenous involvement in post-construction environmental impact reporting. There are also eight new accommodations required to take into account Indigenous concerns, including working with some communities to potentially move the route.

Activists' lawyers: Sheriff should defend anti protest laws against the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota in 2016 and 2017. North Dakota spent $38 million on policing those protests, which resulted in 761 arrests over a sixmonth span. The ACLU is suing South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg and Thom in federal court on behalf of activists. An attorney for Thom last month asked that the sheriff be dismissed from the lawsuit, saying he must enforce state laws but isn't responsible for defending them. Attorney Rebeca L. Mann also argued that Pennington County shouldn't have to defend state laws that it doesn't have the power to change. Plaintiffs' attorney Brendan Johnson countered in Tuesday's court filing that ``each time Thom makes a choice about the laws' meaning, as the highest official in the county for that action, he is doing so as a policymaker for Pennington
County.'' Johnson also argued that Thom must use his own discretion when enforcing the law, making him an ``appropriate defendant.'' Pennington County is one of eight South Dakota counties along the route of TC Energy's planned Keystone XL pipeline to move Canadian crude through Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska, where it would connect with lines to Gulf Coast refineries. The $8 billion project has the backing of President Donald Trump but is being fought in the courts by opponents. The ACLU of South Dakota, North Dakota and Wyoming said it named Thom as a defendant in the lawsuit because he's sheriff in the county in which the activists are working. Plaintiffs include the Rapid City-based NDN Collective non-profit, which advocates for indigenous peoples and climate change awareness.

BISMARCK, ND — Attorneys for oil pipeline opponents are fighting a South Dakota sheriff's attempt to be dismissed as a defendant in a lawsuit challenging new state laws that aim to prevent disruptive demonstrations against the Keystone XL pipeline. Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom should remain a defendant in the suit spearheaded by the American Civil Liberties Union because he will be enforcing law that amounts to an unconstitutional infringement on free speech, an attorney for the plaintiffs argued in a Tuesday court filing. The Republican-backed legislation passed in March allows officials to pursue criminal or civil penalties from demonstrators who engage in ``riot boosting,'' which is defined in part as encouraging violence during a riot. Supporters of the legislation sought to head off protests of the Keystone XL like those mounted

Opinion: On food sovereignty
By Gary Farmer Food is everything. Food and diet are probably 75% of our long term health care grades . Most of us are not really thinking about our long term health if you’re 19 and healthy and vibrant. The other 25% would be water quality, air quality and proximity to industrialization determines how long one might live. So living across from a pulp and paper mill is a health risk. Of course, I’m no doctor or scientist but that’s just common sense, the way I look at things. Course most of us don’t really think much about what we eat on a daily
basis. Some of us have carved out solid routines. I know one fella, because of his diabetes he eats the same meal every night. Mikey he likes it. People have changed their diets to the better in the last few years. Maybe more now than the 1960’s when mass produced fast food first got it’s start. So many suffer that potential of a lifelong diet of fast food. Some have no choice due to economic status. When you have not much money; you’re not buying organic food this week—or even good food like fresh vegetables. Some of us follow the body is sacred model and only ingest the right foods. The right foods vary with individual ideas about what to eat— but lately trends are much less starch, fat, sugar and dairy. Strong correlation between sugar and cancer. Less red meat because it’s harder to digest. And the old adage,“takes 6 acres
to feed a meat eater and 1/6 of an acre to feed a vegetarian.” A lot of vegetarians claim this adage as to why they resist the meat diet. A conscience choice to save over grazing and often exploiting indigenous lands especially in South America has been the argument. It’s harder growing food for yourself and for your family. Because it’s hard work putting in a garden and watching over it all summer. Of course, if you are not working and there’s not much game around or maybe your like me and don’t like walking in the bush shooting for deer; you ought to be putting in a garden— not much later than now. It’s still not to late and with the weather changing like it is, growing seasons are apt to shift some. Grateful to know we now have some public gardens CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

Food sovereignty continued around Ohsweken, behind Grand River Employment and Training building. Last I checked there are still some plots available. In my travels I see lots of tribes, nations really examining their traditional diets of long ago. Roxanne Swentzell from Santa Clara Pueblo in New Mexico and the Pueblo food Experience, explored the importance of eating culturally appropriate foods as native people. She lead a small group of native folks through a pre-colonial inspired diet last winter to see what measurable health impacts on mind, body and spirit. It had positive and reaffirming confidence in our traditional foods and the need for them to be revitalized. "It is our youth that are hearing the call that our foods will help us find our way back to good health." Swentzell added. I remember long ago in the early 1980’s, Trent
University hosted a World Indigenous Theatre Festival I was a taxi driver well young actor helping out longtime friend, Jim Buller producing and i’m the transportation department—well driver of the participants. I’ll never forget the Aborigines from Australia, real bushmen, came to Canada. I distinctly remember, two weeks off their traditional diets and their glucose levels skyrocketed and we had to get them home early. Because they got into beer and fast food over here and loved for me to stop at McDonalds. Food security is a big issue in our over populated earth especially among indigenous peoples. I’ve spent time up north in remote communities in Ontario. Hard to believe we have approximately 136 reserve communities in Ontario alone. Many of them north north like Big Trout Lake where the only way in is by flight.
No roads in...from the highway. Most of food in the north is either canned or dried. Very little fresh food. Of course, they live primarily off wildlife and fish but less so today, as the times they are a changing. Luckily not a lot of fast food up north north. Which is probably our biggest health risk in the south of Canada where we live. The food up north is very pricey because of transportation by air or across the tundra with barges or snow machines. I’ve thought a lot about their food security and how could the north use something like aquaponics and begin farming in a climate like northern Ontario with an even shorter growing season than our own. But no, my thoughts are at home here on the big six where I figure the chicken wings at the Burger Barn are better than Buffalo.

NDP promise to expand universal health care
BANGARRA DANCE THEATRE
into a national pharmacare program as the first step towards a broader move which would eventually see universal dental, vision and hearing care. The policy comes in a new ``commitments document'' — dubbed A New Deal for People — which a party spokesman said will form the basis of the NDP
federal election platform. ``For the first time, every single Canadian can count on this,'' Singh said. ``If you need medication, if your loved one needs medication, you can get it — period. Paid for with your health card, not your credit card.'' The NDP proposal — unveiled Sunday at the
Ontario NDP convention in Hamilton — would see the pharmacare program start sooner than the date recently recommended by an expert panel. The panel said a national list of prescription drugs for pharmacare should be established by Jan. 1, 2022, and be expanded no later than Jan. 1, 2027.
Wednesday November 6 7:00 PM $60.00 Bangarra Dance Theatre is one of Australia’s leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Performing Arts companies, acclaimed worldwide for their moving performances, distinctive voice, and authentic story-telling. Led by Artistic Director Stephen Page, Bangarra’s unique dance technique is forged from over 65,000 years of culture, embodied with contemporary movement. SPIRIT is a powerful collection of dance stories from Bangarra’s 30-year repertoire. Set to a haunting score, audiences connect with stories and songlines drawn from all over Australia, in a celebration of First Nations Peoples’ unbroken connection to the land. “Bangarra dance is a triumph” Herald Sun.
MISSION SONGS PROJECT Special Guest Lacey Hill Thursday April 2 7:00 PM $44.00 Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, Mission Songs Project explores the day to day life of the mission days, from cultural identity to love and loss. Mission Songs Project, led by Jessie Lloyd, revives contemporary Australian Indigenous songs from 1900 to 1999, focusing on the Christian missions, state run settlements and native camps where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were relocated, produced by Performing Lines.
Singh said the plan would save families who already have insurance coverage $550 a year. ``Friends, we have a crisis in health care and it's time that changed,'' he said. ``It's time for the party that brought Medicare to Canada to take a next major step forward. It's time to bring Canadians a historic expansion of the services that health care covers.'' The 109-page document also contains promises to create 500,000 more affordable housing units, expand grant programs for post-secondary education and address the cost of cellphone service and highspeed broadband. The party is pledging to spend a billion dollars in 2020 to enhance child care across the country. The document also promises to restore doorto-door mail delivery to all communities that have lost it — which would cost $100 million — and to establish a gasoline-price watchdog to monitor fuel prices and prevent ``gouging.'' The party says it would raise government revenues to pay for its policies through a number of measures, including increasing corporate taxes and by creating a so-called ``wealth tax.'' Taxes on the richest Canadians — those with net worth of $20 million or more — would jump by one per cent, generating several billion dollars annually in

revenue. ``The Liberals and Conservatives have been working for the people at the very top instead of working for you,'' Singh said. ``We are going to change that.'' The party would roll back corporate tax cuts provided by previous governments to 2010 levels, increasing to 18 per cent from the current 15, generating billions more dollars for government coffers a year. Singh said the party would also institute a 15 per cent foreign buyers tax on residential purchases to prevent housing markets from overheating. The NDP does not make a specific promise to balance the federal budget. ``In all cases, we will manage debt and deficits responsibly, borrowing when required to defend the services that Canadians and their families rely on, and moving to balance when prudent,'' the document says. Liberal MP Marc Miller said the government welcomed the NDP's support when it comes to taking action on national pharmacare, climate change and affordable housing. But Miller questioned the NDP timeline and how it would pay for the specific measures in its plan. ``We hope that the NDP will soon provide the details that Canadians expect from any national party about how it will pay for its promises,'' he said in a statement.
HAMILTON — The federal NDP says it will fast-track a universal drug plan to ensure a late 2020 start date if elected this fall as part of an expansion of Canada's health-care system. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said if his party forms government after the October federal election, it will inject $10 billion annually

Activists want a racist San Francisco high school mural removed Depiction of dead Indigenous people glorifies genocide, manifest destiny
By Amna Khalid, Associate Professor of History, Carleton College and Jeffrey Aaron Snyder Associate Professor of Educational Studies, Carleton College For nearly a century, a massive mural by painter Victor Arnautoff titled “The Life of Washington” has lined the hallways of San Francisco’s George Washington High School. It may not be there much longer. The mural “glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny, white supremacy [and] oppression.” So said Washington High School’s Reflection and Action Group, an ad-hoc committee formed late last year and made up of Native Americans from the community, students, school employees, local artists and historians. It identified two panels as especially offensive. One shows Washington pointing westward next to the body of a dead Native American. The other depicts slaves working in the fields of Mount Vernon. Because the work “traumatizes students and community members,” the group concluded that “the impact of this mural is greater than its intent ever was.” They are campaigning for its removal. The idea that impact matters more than intention has informed debates about everything from microaggressions to cultural appropriation. But when it comes to art, should impact matter more than intention? As historians committed to preserving our cultural

heritage – and as citizens invested in the power of art to engage the public – we see the growing chorus of voices favoring impact over intention as a dangerous trend, one that makes art more vulnerable to rejection, censorship or even destruction. A radical work for its time For most members of the Washington High School’s Reflection and Action Group, the only message “The Life of Washington” sends is one of crushing, dehumanizing oppression. What happens, though, when we examine the mural in the context of the life and times of the artist? Painter Victor Arnautoff was born in 1896 in a small village in present-day Ukraine. He emigrated to San Francisco in 1925, where he joined a leftist art collective. During the Great Depression he was a supporter of workers’ strikes and formally joined the Communist Party in 1937. He was even hauled before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1956 for drawing a
“Communist Conspiracy” cartoon that caricatured then-Vice President Nixon. In “The Life of Washington,” Arnautoff decided to place Native Americans, African Americans and working-class revolutionaries front and center in the four largest panels, relegating Washington to the margins. The slaves toiling in the Mount Vernon fields highlight a central paradox of America’s history: The nation was founded by men who championed liberty, freedom and equality, and yet owned slaves. Then there’s the striking image of the fallen Native American. The mural’s detractors say that it dismisses the humanity of indigenous peoples. But why must it necessarily be read as dehumanizing to Native Americans? Could it not instead be seen as throwing into sharp relief the inhumanity of the founding fathers? According to Arnautoff’s biographer, Robert W. Cherny, the image challenged the fallacy that “westward expansion had been into largely vacant
territory waiting for white pioneers to develop its full potential.” That the mural appears in a school is particularly important in this regard. For decades, the country’s educational institutions perpetuated national myths about American exceptionalism and American history as one long glorious march of forward progress. Up until the 1960s, the standard U.S. history curriculum ignored the country’s dark and terrifying history of racial violence, including enslavement and the slaughter of indigenous peoples. So drawing attention to the horrors inflicted on Native Americans and African Americans would have been a radical statement in 1930s America. Many of those in favor of scrapping the murals seem to believe that merely depicting past atrocities justifies them. In fact, the Action and Reflection Group concluded that the mural contravened the San Francisco Unified School District’s commitment to “social justice.” Quite to the contrary.

In our view, the “Life of Washington” provides an invaluable opportunity for students to engage in a serious and sustained way with social justice issues. There’s a strong case to be made that Arnautoff is exposing – rather than celebrating – slavery and genocide. Moreover, those arguing for the mural’s removal are overlooking the fact that African Americans are not only portrayed as picking cotton and that Native Americans are not only depicted as victims of genocide. Rather Arnautoff is insisting that African Americans and indigeneous peoples were key historical actors in the making of the United States. Only the latest controversy The controversy over this mural is sadly not an isolated exception. Over the past several years, there have been dozens of cases where plays, poems, books, prints, paintings, sculptures, installations and other creative works have been shut down, canceled, removed or otherwise
censored based on snap judgments, social media swarms, ideologically motivated reasoning and obtuse interpretations of the art in question. In all of these cases, there has been little to no regard for the aspirations, aims and ambitions of the artists themselves. Their intentions have been treated along a spectrum that runs from indifference to contempt. To be clear, we are not saying that an artist’s intent is all that matters. How people interpret and respond to a work of art is inseparable from its raison d'etre. But disregarding the intentions of artists would place every significant creative work with a whiff of controversy in jeopardy because of its “problematic” or “offensive” content. In a world where intentionality and context are irrelevant, satire and irony would not only be incomprehensible but forbidden. Artist Kara Walker’s searing paper cuts depicting the horrific violence of slavery in the United States? Nothing more than a celebration of the white domination of black bodies. The pungent, explosive litany of racial slurs in Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing”? Just a vicious rehearsal of profoundly damaging ethnic stereotypes. Keegan-Michael Key’s brilliant sketch character Luther who serves as Obama’s “anger translator”? Simply a racist caricature of the “angry black man.” This article originally appeared on The Conversation.

Coming home: Navajo to get treaty that ended imprisonment FLAGSTAFF, AZ — A 150-year-old document that allowed Navajos to return to their homeland in the Four Corners region where Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet is destined for a permanent home at the tribe's museum. Navajos had been imprisoned at a desolate tract of land in eastern New Mexico before signing a treaty with the federal government in 1868. The United States signed hundreds of treaties with Native American tribes as acts of peace and friendship or to end wars, but the Navajos were unique in securing a return to their homeland bounded by four mountains they consider sacred. A Navajo legislative committee is expected to vote Tuesday to accept an original copy of the treaty that was believed to have been lost and is one of only three original copies. It had moved among cardboard boxes, chests and filing cabinets in the Manchester, Massachusetts, home of Indian Peace Commissioner Samuel F. Tappan, who helped negotiate the treaty. His great-grandniece,
Clare ``Kitty'' Weaver, said she had seen it among Tappan's papers but only recently learned of its importance. Another copy of the treaty is in the National Archives, and last one was given to Barboncito, the last Navajo chief to surrender to military forces in 1866, but its whereabouts are unknown. Barboncito and thousands of Navajos had been

forcibly marched to the Bosque Redondo reservation in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, after the military destroyed their crops and livestock. Tribal officials asked Weaver last year during a gathering for the 150th anniversary of the signing of the treaty if she would donate the Tappan copy to the Navajo Nation. ``There were two things I had to deal with: my head
The Ottawa indigenous Fashion Week IS SET TO KICK OFF JULY 1st—4th 2019 THROUGHOUT THE WEEK, INDIGENOUS ARTISTS, FASHION DESIGNERS, MODELS, FASHIONISTA’S, ACADEMIA, GOVERNMENT AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC WILL GATHER TO CELEBRATE ON THE HILL! SDNR IS PROUD TO HOST THE 2019 OTTAWA INDIGENOUS FASHION WEEK. IN ADDITION TO WORKSHOPS, AN INTERACTIVE LECTURE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA BY CHARLENE LINDSAY PH.D (CANDIDATE); THE TEAM WILL ALSO EXPLORE HOW BEST TO CREATE WAYS TO INCLUDE INDIGENOUS DESIGNERS AND MODELS FROM REMOTE COMMUNITIES. THE WEEK WILL WRAP WITH A FINAL RUNWAY SHOW.
and my heart,'' said Weaver, who is writing a biography on Tappan. ``And my heart knew right away that it should go to the Navajos. And my head took a little more time because I wanted to be sure that the protocols were in place for housing the treaty.'' Under an agreement signed this month, the treaty must be kept in a climate-controlled environment under lock and alarm or live security. An archivist will check on it periodically, and it won't be displayed for more than six months total over a 10-year period. It also must be shared with a memorial site at Bosque Redondo and cannot be sold. Tribal law says the Navajo president cannot accept gifts or donations worth more than $1,000 without the legislative committee's approval. The Tappan treaty _ written on 17 pages of ledger paper, measuring 8 inches by 12 inches and tied with a faded red ribbon _ is valued at $10,000. Suzan Shown Harjo, guest curator of an exhibit on treaties at the National Museum of the American Indian, said treaties have
taken different forms, from being recorded on parchment or ledger paper to being depicted on beaded belts. Seeing original treaties connects people with their ancestors, whose DNA is on the historical records, she said. ``There's just sort of a wave of recognition that these are the people who signed this treaty for me, and these are the people who went through what they went through for me,'' said Harjo, who is Cheyenne and Hodulgee Muscogee. ``They did it for my grandchildren, they did it for all the coming generations, whether it was a terrific treaty or a half-good treaty or some treaty, they did the best they could.'' Tappan and Gen. William T. Sherman negotiated a treaty with the Navajos as part of the Indian Peace Commission. Neither of them signed the copy being donated. Only one Navajo leader could sign his own name. The treaty marked the end of years of Navajo imprisonment. Those who couldn't keep up with the
journey to Bosque Redondo _ known as the Long Walk _ were killed. Disease, the harsh winters and unfamiliarity with how to prepare foods also led to deaths. Navajos call the land ``Hweeldi,'' meaning a place of suffering and fear. Sherman and Tappan planned to move the Navajos to land in present-day Kansas and Oklahoma, but those at Bosque Redondo were intent on going home. ``The bringing of us here has caused a great decrease in our numbers,'' Barboncito said at the time, according to historical documents. ``Many of us have died, also a great number of our animals. Our grandfathers had no idea of living in any other country except our own, and I do not think it is right for us to do so.'' The Navajo reservation now spans 27,000 square miles (69,930 square kilometres) in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, and is the largest in the United States. Navajo President Jonathan Nez said having the Tappan treaty in the tribe's museum will ``magnify the resilience of our Navajo people.''

Six Nations of the Grand River is a First Nations community
and the home of six Iroquois nations that make up the members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The word Haudenosaunee means “People of the Longhouse” — a longhouse is a big house. It is build out of elm posts and bark. It is the style of homes our ancestors built.
The people of Six Nations traditionally come from the Finger Lakes region of New York State.

languages and family groups called clans.
In Haudenosaunee culture, every family belongs to a clan represented by an animal. Altogether there are nine clans: three air clans, three water clans and three earth clans. The clans are the Hawk, Snipe and
Heron; Turtle, Eel and Beaver; and the Bear, Wolf, and Deer.
He brought a message of unity and respect that was accepted by the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca and Tuscarora. He brought the people together as the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and together they established a Great Law of Peace. To this day, when Haudenosaunee people come together they will say an opening address to remember the Great Law of Peace. It is called Ganohonyok, or the Thanksgiving address. It is a message to remind the people the importance of giving thanks for all of the things the Creator provides for us in the natural world and helps people
come together to a good place in their hearts, minds and spirits.

'This road is just the beginning:' Isolated First Nation celebrates SHOAL LAKE — For the first time in his life, Chief Erwin Redsky won't have to fight for each small stone that lies along the 24-kilometre road that connects his First Nation to the outside world after more than a century. He looks down the long, wide gravel landlink and predicts it is his community's path to the future. ``This is Freedom Road,'' says the chief of Shoal Lake 40 First Nation with a smile. The road that provides a year-round tie to the Trans-Canada Highway is just the beginning of a long journey toward reconciliation in Canada, he says. ``Shoal Lake 40 has been that model of that broken relationship, and I think Shoal Lake 40 can be that model of that new relationship that needs to happen with Indigenous Peoples of this land,'' he said in an interview last week. The First Nation on the Manitoba-Ontario boundary is planning to hold a four-day grand opening for Freedom Road this
week. Shoal Lake was cut off from the mainland in 1915 during construction of an aqueduct that supplies Winnipeg with drinking water. Clean water flows to the capital city while dirty water is pushed to the reserve. Shoal Lake residents have been under a boil-water advisory for more than two decades, one of the longest in Canada. News reports from the time said the spot was largely uninhabited ``with the exception of a few Indians.'' Redsky said his First Nation has paid the ``price of water'' with their health, economy and even their lives. Members used ice roads in winter and an aging and often unreliable ferry in the summer. During the seasons in between, people risked their lives walking across the ice to get to and from the mainland. Most have a story of falling through the ice or of relatives who died during the treacherous trek.

The First Nation spent decades trying to negotiate with provincial and federal governments, but their plight was finally brought to national attention with the opening of Winnipeg's Canadian Museum for Human Rights in 2014. Cuyler Cotton, a policy analyst who works with Shoal Lake 40, said the community's leadership pointed out the hypocrisy of having the reserve's water running through the museum's taps. Soon churches, students and citizens started to march in support of the First Nation. ``This was no longer an Indigenous story. This was the story of Winnipeg. This is the story of Canada,'' he said. Manitoba, the City of Winnipeg and the federal government finally reached a funding agreement in 2016. Construction of the road began the following year. ``Honestly, for me, I had to see it to believe it,'' said Roxanne Greene, a band councillor and organizer for the opening celebra-

MPs urged to act concerning coerced sterilization of Indigenous women OTTAWA — MPs on the House of Commons health committee heard grave concerns Thursday about ongoing sterilizations of Indigenous women without their consent — an issue also raised by the national inquiry tasked with examining violence against Indigenous women in its many forms. Alisa Lombard, a lawyer representing Indigenous women who allege they were coerced into sterilization procedures after childbirth, told the committee her clients live with emotional and physical trauma. ``They cannot have children,'' Lombard said. ``It was not their choice. They suffer.'' Lombard talked about one of her clients, known as D.D.S., who believed she had no choice but to sign a consent form moments after receiving an epidural at a Moose Jaw, Sask., hospital in December 2018. The federal government must now take very concrete measures on prevention, punishment and reparations for women who have gone through these ex-
periences, she said, adding that Canada has faced calls, including from the United Nations Committee Against Torture, to act. Lombard was questioned Thursday by Liberal MP Robert-Falcon Ouellette about how much Canadians care about the issue, given that it's been discussed, including in media reports, for more than two years. ``I guess we will find out,'' she replied. The women deserve accountability, agreed Francyne Joe, the president of the Native Women's Association of Canada who also testified. Earlier Thursday, Lombard said in an interview it is not surprising the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls included the issue among its findings. The commission, which released 231 recommendations last week, was asked by the federal government to probe all forms of violence against Indigenous women and girls. Lombard said ``obstetric violence'' clearly falls into that category, adding that
numerous parties with standing at the inquiry made submissions on the issue, including the vicechair of Saskatchewan's Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations. The inquiry's final report says that Alberta and B.C. both repealed provincial sterilization acts in the 1970s but Indigenous women across the coun-
try tell stories of coerced sterilizations that continue even today. It also notes the proposed class-action lawsuit on behalf of Indigenous women in Saskatchewan who have provided evidence they were sterilized without their consent. The proposed class was launched in 2017, naming the Saskatoon Health Au-
thority, the Saskatchewan government, the federal government and a handful of medical professionals as defendants. More than 100 women have since come forward with allegations. ``We believe that is only the tip of the iceberg,'' Melanie Omeniho, the president of Women of the Metis Nation, told the committee.
Metis women are not just concerned about doctors performing procedures, she added. She said coercion comes from other players in medical institutions and social workers as well. The health committee passed a motion on to call RCMP commissioner Brenda Lucki to testify on the issue.

CELEBRATION OF NATIONS
OTTAWA — The Canadian government's relationship with the Metis Nation is a tangible and concrete example of reconciliation, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday. At a meeting known as the Crown-Metis Nation Summit held in Ottawa, Trudeau said reconciliation efforts will span generations but said the government has come a long way in working with the Metis Nation on long-standing challenges, including housing and post-secondary education. The meeting is the third since the Liberals came to power in 2015. ``I really want to put forward this relationship as the model of what reconciliation can be,'' Trudeau said at the beginning of the discussions, flanked by Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett and Metis National Council president Clement Chartier. Some people might talk about reconciliation as loosely as any other buzzword, said Chartier, but he stressed the Metis Nation

has witnessed it in action with cabinet ministers who have been dedicated to working with the Metis on the path forward. Chartier said when he first met Trudeau, he tried to impress upon him it was critical to address the challenges facing Indigenous Peoples with respect for the unique needs of Metis, First Nations, and Inuit. He said that this approach has shown results
and went on to present Trudeau with the Order of the Metis Nation _ the highest award it has for people who have made a significant contribution to the Metis. Next year will mark 150 years since the Metis Nation joined Canada, Trudeau said Thursday, adding it is an important anniversary for all Canadians to celebrate this milestone and to reaffirm the commitment to work together.

Google 'doodle' by Ontario Ojibwe artist celebrates jingle dress dance STAFF REPORT
TWO ROW TIMES
A brightly-coloured illustration celebrating the popular Indigenous jingle dress dance adorned Google's homepage on Saturday, courtesy of Ojibwe artist Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley. The illustration depicts two women dancing in jingle dresses, which the
search engine describes as filling the air with sounds like raindrops on a tin roof as metal ornaments jingle with dancers' intricate footwork. Pawis-Steckley says he hopes it carries the message that Anishinaabe culture is beautiful and Indigenous women are strong. He was excited when Google approached him in April with the idea of creating a so-called
Google Doodle about the dance, which is popular at competitive powwows in Canada and the United States. Pawis-Steckley splits his time between Vancouver and Wasauksing First Nation in Ontario and says he's not sure how Google found his work, but suspects designers might have noticed a series of different powwow dance illustrations he created last year.
He says he's received a flurry of messages and nearly doubled his Instagram followers since the doodle went live at midnight on Saturday. ``It's kind of unreal. Even on Instagram, I've never really got that much attention before. It all kind of exploded,'' Pawis-Steckley said, adding that he's glad to see support for Indigenous artists working in new mediums like graphic design.
Three indigenous organizations partner with Netflix STAFF REPORT

Netflix has announced new partnerships with three Indigenous cultural organizations in Canada to help foster and develop screen talent. The partnerships with imagineNATIVE which is the world's largest presenter of Indigenous screen content, the Indigenous Screen Office, and Wapikoni Mobile which is an organization that travels to Indigenous communities across Canada to offer filmmaking tools for youth were revealed last Tuesday night at the Banff World Media Festival. The initiative is part of a $25-million and five year commitment Netflix made in September 2017
Netflix has partnered with imagineNATIVE, Indigenous Screen OfPHOTO FILE fice and Wapikoni Mobile.
to invest in market development activities aimed at supporting the next generation of Canadian film creators. These new agreements bring the total number of partnerships to 14 that have been inked as part of that commitment, which focuses on underserved communities, including Indigenous, women and francophone creators.
In a statement, imagineNATIVE executive director Jason Ryle said the partnership with Netflix "marks one of the largest sponsorships in imagineNATIVE's history.” Cardin said while Netflix would want to hear about any projects that might come out of the partnerships, the company doesn't have anything built into the contracts
concerning so-called "first-look" or "right of first refusal" deals that would give the company an exclusive on productions. The agreement with imagineNATIVE — an organization that has its own institute and holds an annual film festival in Toronto — will involve six distinct activities aimed at Indigenous screenwriters, directors and producers. Those activities will include Indigenous producers' and directors' labs. The agreement with the Indigenous Screen Office will provide "second-phase support" for Indigenous projects, including key creative apprenticeships and cultural mentorships for directors, producers, screenwriters and show-runners.

The Amazing Race Canada has been a reality television competition series that features 10 teams competing in a gruelling race across Canada and the world for over 30 seasons. This year, the race will feature indigenous couple comprised of Navajo Anthony Johnson from Arizona and Cree James Makokis from Alberta. Not only are the current Edmonton residents seemingly perfectly matched for each other, but part of why they’re racing is to show young Indigenous people that there are people “like them” who are successful, as Johnson is a project consultant and Makokis is a doctor, while still committed to their cultural and spiritual beliefs. Johnson and Makokis met on Facebook after Johnson spotted Makokis as the center-fold in OUT Magazine. When the two met in person, sparks flew and they married in 2017. The duo are both driven to be strong voic-es for their community and good role models. Johnson attended Harvard and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. His marriage to Makokis, and subsequent move to Alberta, has given him a new lease on life. Makokis has constantly dealt with the adversities in the medical industry related to being Indigenous and hopes to use the opportunity to educate. The pair started chatting and three years ago, for Johnson’s 30th birth-
day, Makokis travelled to Manhattan where they had “this awe-some New York romance.” While showcasing strong teamwork and their genuine love for each other is a top goal for this team, they also want to help educate the rest of Canada on Indigenous life. They say they’ve never had the opportunity to see how two people like them might interact together on television be-fore, and that their casting is a huge step in overall Canadian diversity. “Diversity is important because our world is diverse. The more people that we see, the more voices we hear about, the more history we learn from one another, the more our hearts open to humanity and the world,” Johnson said. “Our team motto is Ahkameyimok. It’s a [Cree] word you say to another person’s spirit to say, dig deep within yourself and find that element of your spirit, that true essence of yourself and exert it and do your best. When you do that, that’s when you achieve breakthrough re-sults. That’s when you overcome things that are in your path.” “It’s something elders say to younger people as encouragement,” Makokis explained. “We want to be positive. And we want others to learn a little about Indigenous languages and say something pretty easy that they could also use in their own life.” “It’s also just really fun to say!” adds Johnson. The series kicks off on Tuesday, July 2 at 9 p.m., on CTV.

First Nations push for massive conservation area in northern B.C. CANADIAN PRESS
TWO ROW TIMES
LOWER POST, BC — First Nations in northern British Columbia are calling on the provincial government to endorse an ambitious proposal for a 40,000-square-kilometre conservation area to protect major watersheds and sensitive species. The proposal would cover the ancestral areas of three Kaska Dena First Nations and would be larger than Vancouver Island, taking up a massive section of north-central B.C. Premier John Horgan's government hasn't said whether it supports or opposes the idea after seven months of phone calls, letters and meetings with officials from various ministries, say the project's proponents. ``They've never said No, but they've never said Yes, and they've never said they would sit down and negotiate what it would look like. That's all we're asking at this point,'' said David Crampton of the Dena Kayeh Institute, which is spearheading the project. ``We're not sure why. We have no idea really what's going on in the background of all this.'' The First Nations have applied for $4 million in federal government funding for the project, known as the Kaska Indigenous Protected and Conserved Area, and now fear it won't receive funding because B.C. hasn't signed on. Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has been supportive, said Crampton. ``But she's drawing her reins in a little bit because of the complacency of the provincial government, at this point, to make any kind of move at all,'' he said. The provincial and federal governments did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The plan has been more than two decades in the making. Horgan was a staff member in B.C.'s New Democrat government in the 1990s, which worked with the Kaska to create
what was then one of the largest protected areas in the world, the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area. The proposed new conservation area includes part of the Muskwa-Kechika. The new area covers a vast, roadless area stretching to the Yukon border in the north, the slopes of the Rockies in the east, the Cassiar Mountains on the west, and to the Rocky Mountain Trench _ between the Rockies and the Cassiar _ in the south. Crampton said the proposal was carefully designed to avoid forestry and other resource extraction areas. It lies between natural gas deposits and the Site C dam project in the east, and mining and other resource projects in the west. In the most recent round of letters sent to various ministers, the Kaska Dena Council explained why the conservation area would not conflict with natural resource development, said Crampton. The council wrote to Forests Minister Doug Donaldson on May 3, saying it had come to their attention that ``there is a major concern within your ministry regarding possible tensions and conflict around forestry'' in the proposed protected area. ``We believe this is based on misinformation and a serious lack of understanding of our proposal in spite of our best efforts to keep both you and your officials well-informed and well-briefed,'' the letter says. ``We are worried that these concerns, never shared with us directly, are having a negative impact on your perception of our proposal.'' The Kaska controls logging in the forests surrounding the conservation area and there isn't any opportunity for forestry inside it, Crampton said. As for mining, Teck Resources holds a permit that covers a southeast corner of the conservation area, but it only actively operates outside the area, Crampton said. Teck said in a statement that it has not been contacted by the Kaska
about a conservation area and would be open to discussions about their proposed plans. The Kaska have applied for federal help from a $175-million fund designated for projects that help Canada meet a biodi-
versity target of protecting 17 per cent of land and inland water by 2020. The institute completed a 78-page conservation analysis, which detailed how the area is home to seven herds of northern woodland caribou, 10
major watersheds and 13 distinct ecosystems, said Corrine Porter, executive director of the Dena Kayeh Institute. Supporters also say the conservation area would create jobs for Kaska members, who could work
as guides or Indigenous guardians who patrol the land. ``We want to protect it for our cultural well-being,'' added Porter. ``It's just a really special area that we'd like to protect for future generations.''
Call for Submissions: Indigenous Artwork The Legislative Assembly of Ontario invites Ontario-based Indigenous wood artists to submit for consideration an Expression of Interest to design and carve a fixed art piece for the Legislative Chamber. Background As the seat of Ontario’s provincial parliament, the Legislative Building is a physical symbol representing our province. At the heart of the building is the Legislative Chamber where Members of Provincial Parliament meet to debate and pass bills on behalf of Ontarians.
For 125 years, Ontario’s Legislative Chamber has brought many people with different opinions together to seek consensus. The Chamber has a rich heritage and contains a number of intricate wood carvings set in mahogany and Canadian sycamore. Inspired by medieval architecture, renderings of gargoyles and mythical creatures are intended to scare away evil spirits, while Latin mottoes inscribed on pillars promote good governance. These pieces are beautiful and historically significant, but they lack representation from the province’s first peoples. Artist’s Assignment The purpose of this call for submissions is to incorporate Indigenous artwork into the Chamber. The artwork will serve as a permanent reminder of the history of Indigenous peoples in Ontario and symbolize new connections, relationships and opportunities being fostered today. The Legislative Assembly of Ontario is looking for a wood artist to design and carve a fixed art piece that will represent The Seven Grandfathers Teachings.
A mahogany panel will be located above the alcove framing the doors of the Legislative Chamber. The exposed area of the panel will be approximately 14 inches in height by 118 inches in length by 1.5 inches in thickness. One artist will be selected to design and carve this wood panel into a fixed art piece representing The Seven Grandfathers Teachings.
Commission Budget The budget for this commission is $20,000.00, which must cover all costs required to design and fabricate the art piece. The wooden panel will be provided to the selected artist. The Legislative Assembly of Ontario will be responsible for the staining and installation of the panel. The art piece will become the property of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. Submission Requirements Your submission must include all of the following components:
1. Expression of Interest Explain why you are interested in the opportunity. Tell us about your artwork and if you have created work for any other public space. Your Expression of Interest may be either a written submission or a short video. 2. Biography Submit a current biography or information about yourself. Include information such as your experience as an artist/ wood carver, any art training you have completed, public artwork on display and any other experience directly related to this opportunity. Include your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address. 3. Samples of Previous Artwork Submit a maximum of five (5) digital image files or photographs showing samples of wood carvings that you have completed or that are currently in progress. 4. Concept Drawing Provide a scale drawing or sketch of your proposed carving of the wood panel. Include an explanation/interpretation of how the proposed carving represents The Seven Grandfathers Teachings.
All submissions will become the property of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. Deadlines Submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. (EST) on December 31, 2019.
Any questions must be received by 11:00 a.m. (EST) on December 10, 2019.
E-mail submissions to email@example.com (up to 10MB in attachments in .JPEG, .TIFF, or .PDF formats, links preferred) or mail to the following address: Trevor Day | Deputy Clerk & Executive Director, Legislative Services Legislative Assembly of Ontario 99 Wellesley Street West Toronto, Ontario M7A 1A2 Telephone: 416-325-3502 | Fax: 416-325-5848
Selection Criteria Submissions will be evaluated by an all-party panel. The evaluation will include assessing the artist’s experience, qualifications, previous artwork, and concept drawing and explanation. The decision of the panel is final. The successful artist must sign a written agreement with the Legislative Assembly of Ontario transferring all rights to the artwork. The Legislative Assembly of Ontario reserves the right to modify, amend or withdraw this call for submissions at any time without notice or compensation.

Jordan Nolan has now taken part in the culmination of three NHL championship as the St. Louis Blues welcomed the cup after their PHOTO SUBMITTED win over the Boston Bruins last Wednesday.
By TRT Staff Garden River’s Jordan Nolan has reason to celebrate. As the St. Louis Blues beat the Boston Bruins 4-1 last Wednesday night in game seven of the Stanley Cup Final, the team won the trophy for the first time in franchise history. For Nolan, it’s the third time he’s been part of a Stanley Cup celebration. The 29-year-old, who is also a former member of the Ontario Hockey League’s Soo Greyhounds, was a part of a pair of Stanley Cup winners in Los Angeles. Nolan was a part of the Kings as the team won the Cup in 2012 and 2014. Nolan played with the Kings for six seasons before joining the Buffalo Sabres for the 2017-18 season and then joining the Blues this season. Nolan spent much of the 2018-19 season playing for former Greyhounds coach Drew Bannister with the Blues American
Hockey League affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, but also suited up in 14 regular season games with the Blues where he picked up a pair of assists. In 59 games in San Antonio, Nolan scored 17 goals and 35 points. Nolan was called up from the Rampage prior to the Blues second round series against the Dallas Stars. As an Ojibwe athlete and as per tradition, each player on the winning team is awarded a day with the Stanley Cup, so this will be his third time bringing it to his home in Ontario.

TWO ROW TIMES
SIX NATIONS — With a high lead, the Six Nations Rebels clipped the wings of the Windsor Clippers at home on Friday, June 14, ending their regular season with a final victory as they still on top of the South Western Conference. The first period opened with three consecutive goals from Dawit Martin, Owen Martin and Marshall Powless, leaving the Clippers to catch up as they returned twice. But in the second period, the Rebels went ahead with twice as many consecutive buries before the Clippers could answer. Wesley Whitlow came in with a double, while Tycie Cowan, Daylen Hill, Marshall Powless, and Justin Martin earned singles. The Clippers answered back with two, but each were cancelled out as Wesley Whitlow went for a hat-trick and Gutch Salinas
buried a single to close the period. In the third, Tycie Cowan went for his second and Marshall Powless went for a hat-trick. The Clippers returned once, but Chayton King, Daylen Hill, and Marshall Powless earned singles while Justin Martin made a double. This closed the contest 18-4 for the Rebels, which made up for their last game against the Clippers that ended in a close 11-9 earlier in April. The team is stacked with three top league scoring leaders in Marshall Powless on top (151points), Wesley Whitlow in sixth (102points) and Sidney Powless tied for eight (98points). And Chayton King who is on the board of career leaders for game-winning goals (17) and goals (170). As they sit on the top, the Rebels will enter play-off season suffering just one loss with hopes of returning the Founders Cup to Six Nations.
Referee battered by lacrosse coach leads to assault charge ORILLIA — Provincial police say they’ve charged a coach with assault after a lacrosse referee was allegedly assaulted in the West Orillia Sports Complex on Friday, June 14. Investigators say they were called to answer the report of the assault around 10 p.m., and found the male referee bleeding as a result of an alleged physical fight. The incident took place at Rotary Place,
a state-of-the-art twinpad arena that features two NHL-sized ice rinks, during a game between two out-of-town midget teams competing in the Boyd Balkwill Memorial Tournament. A Facebook post by the OLOA says, “to clarify, the referee was cornered in a hallway when he was beaten. This did not occur in front of an audience.” An additional comment says, “the man who was
assaulted wasn’t even reffing the game in question. He was attempting to (defuse) an irate coach and the coach felt the need to assault him.” Dwayne Palomaki, 47, who was charged with the assault, was acting as the trainer for the Innisfil midget team during the game in question. He was given a game misconduct for verbally berating the on-floor officials and was removed
from the game. Shortly thereafter, Gord Brown, the referee in chief, went to ensure the Palomaki had left the building. It's not clear how people became alerted to the incident but Brown was found in the hallway, bloodied, with facial trauma and requiring hospitalization. Palomaki, has been charged with assault causing bodily harm and he is scheduled to appear in court on July 23.

After four people were injured Monday in a shooting during the Toronto Raptors' NBA Championship celebration, Canadian officials urged the public to not let it undermine a mostly peaceful commemoration of a historic win. "I hope all those injured in today's shooting have a speedy recovery and I'd like to thank the Toronto Police for acting so quickly," Prime Minister Trudeau said on Twitter. "We won't let this act of violence take away from the spirit of today's parade.” The victims of the gunfire suffered "non-life threatening" injuries in the shooting near the rally in Nathan Phillips Square, as the arrest of three individuals was quick and in two separate incidents connected to the shooting. It was insisted that the incident affected a small group of people during
an otherwise jubilant celebration as out of the thousands of people in at-tendance, the vast majority didn't even know it happened. Images on social media showed people running from the scene and many images suggested a “stampede” like reaction to the gunfire. Since, the names of the three men that were charged in connection to the gunfire were released. Shaquille Anthony Miller, 25, and Thaino Tous-saint, 20, appeared in court on Tuesday, charged with a string of fire-arms-related charges. The third man, 18-year-old Abdikarim Kerow, faces multiple charges stemming from an earlier incident. However, police say they are also looking to identify a person of interest who left the scene of the shooting who was described as caucasian, male, 5'9" to 6' with short, light brown hair and a heavy build.

Majority agrees Indigenous women victims of 'genocide' but not on how or by whom National Indigenous People Day FRIDAY, JUNE 21st, SATURDAY, JUNE 22nd AND SUNDAY, JUNE 23rd, 2019 The Toronto Zoo is celebrating National Indigenous People’s Day and over 20 years of strong, vibrant cultures and traditions. The event is free with admission.
OTTAWA — A new poll suggests most Canadians agree that the murders and disappearances of Indigenous women amount to genocide. But the Leger poll also suggests there's disagreement about when it occurred and who is responsible. Fifty-three per cent of respondents agreed with the finding of the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, which last week concluded that the tragedy is part of an ``ongoing genocide'' that
has been centuries in the making. But there was little consensus about what form that genocide took: 17 per cent blamed colonization and the loss of Indigenous lands to European settlers, 15 per cent blamed church-run residential schools and another 15 per cent pointed to the destruction of cultural identity and forced assimilation; just three per cent blamed racism. As to who is responsible, 32 per cent blamed Canada's British and French founders and 25
per cent blamed Catholic and Protestant churches; another 21 per cent said all Canadians share responsibility for the injustice while just one per cent blamed government. The poll of 1,528 Canadians randomly recruited from Leger's online panel was conducted between June 7 and 10 for the Association for Canadian Studies; polling experts say online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not generate a random sample of the population.

We apologize if any names have been missed. Our thanks also goes out to those we have missed. The Six Nations Sports & Cultural Memorial Centre is a symbol of cooperation and hard work among community members from all parts of our Six Nations Reserve as well as the many nonnatives living in the surrounding areas especially Brantford, Caledonia, and Hagersville. Chi-Miigwech from Sandy Sault I have so much that I want to say to everyone that I’m finding it hard to write a thank-you letter. I’d get started then the tears would start to flow. I’m so overwhelmed by all the love, support and strength I’ve received from not only family and friends but also from both the New Credit, Six Nations communities and also from people that I don’t even know. I didn’t think that this wold be such a hard and emotional letter to write. I just can’t thank everyone enough for all that they’ve done for me and for helping me get through this. You all are my strength to keep pushing to beat the “big C”, which I will do. I’d also like to thank everyone who attended my benefit. Thank-you to all the vendors, bands, people who donated for the penny table, door prizes and all the hard working volunteers, my family and friends. It was such a beautiful day. Last but not least, I’d like to thank my Mama and my rockhead sisters, Dianne and Lorianne for always being here for me. They’ve been by my side through it all. Love you so much. Thank you again to each & every one of you for all your Prayers, Love, Strength & support. My heart is filled with so much love for you all. Chi-Miigwech
