The yearly gift is usually passed out by volunteers as visitors and members from across Haudenosanee territories travel to Six Nations for their share. Due to the pandemic restrictions that have been in place for the last two years, that annual gathering had to be altered to keep the community safe. DONNA DURIC

Where to vote in the federal election STAFF REPORT

TWO ROW TIMES

SIX NATIONS — The upcoming federal election is on September 20. For Six Nations residents and residents of Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation there will be a poll located at the Gathering Place by the Grand at 2593 Chiefswood Road. In order to participate, residents need to register to vote at elections.ca or by calling the Brantford-Brant Elections

Canada office at 1-866238-4181. If you don’t get an opportunity to register before Election Day you can still vote, as long as you bring proof of address and identification with you to the poll in your district. All voting in Canada is done according to residential status, so Six Nations band members and Mississaugas band members who live off the territory can not participate in voting on Six Nations, but should instead vote where they normally reside.

In what’s become a theme for community events in the past year and a half, Six Nations once again re-arranged plans to continue holding events in the ever-changing pandemic world. This past Friday marked a beloved Six Nations’ annual event, Bread and Cheese Day, which normally takes place over Victoria Day weekend in a tradition dating back to the queen’s reign in which she would gift Haudenosaunee people with bread and cheese. The community now has a trust fund held in Ottawa that is used to buy thousands of loaves of bread and chunks of cheese. For two years now, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Bread and Cheese was not handed out to huge line-ups of crowds inside the Gaylord Powless Arena, accompanied by a long weekend of rides and other festivities at the arena grounds in the heart

The yearly gift of bread and cheese was distributed in a drive-thru socially distanced event this year courtesy of an energetic squad of community volunteers. DONNA DURIC

of Ohsweken. This year, volunteers from Six Nations Elected Council handed out the goodies during two separate drive-through events where guests remained in their vehicles. Half the reserve visited the Gathering Place on Chiefswood Road for their bread and cheese, while the other half drove through the parking lot of the Gaylord Powless Arena. Precisely at 11 a.m., a huge line-up of cars started to roll through the parking lot at bread

stations and cheese stations and within an hour, before noon, thousands of community members left with cars full of bread and cheese. Despite the obvious changes to the century-old tradition, which began in the late 1800s, one thing remained a constant: community members came together to say hi to old friends, near and far, a much-needed respite from a year of staying apart. “This isn’t about the Queen; it’s about the community,” said Elected Chief Mark Hill, who enthusias-

tically handed out bread to hundreds of vehicles that came through the Gathering Place. “It’s nice to see everybody’s smiling faces.” The Chief and elected councillors cheerfully chatted with community members coming through the line-up but there was no forgetting the horrifying year it’s been for Indigenous communities across Canada, as all the volunteers wore orange shirts to commemorate the lives of thousands of Indigenous children whose bodies have been found in hidden graves at former residential schools across the country since May. Orange is the colour associated with residential school survivors. “Every child matters,” Chief Hill said, which is the slogan and hashtag associated with residential schools, which were a government-led program to assimilate children into Canadian culture by forcing them to attend boarding schools away from their home communities until the last one closed in 1996 in Saskatchewan.

BRANTFORD —Six Nations resident and federal candidate for the People’s Party of Canada in Brantford-Brant Cole Squire was prohibited from participating in the all-candidates debate on Tuesday morning after he declined to disclose his vaccine status prior to the event. The debate, hosted by the Brantford Chamber of Commerce along with Rogers and Brant One News, was held inside the One Market building in the city’s downtown core. Candidates were informed that in order to participate they had to provide proof of vaccination or if they were not able to provide proof of having received a COVID vaccine, that they would undergo a Rapid Antigen Screening test that would have to be neg-

ative, prior to the event. Squire refused to disclose his personal medical information as a prerequisite for participating in the debate and as a result was shut out. Squire held a press conference outside One Market Tuesday morning and said the BRCC told him he would also not be permitted to participate in the debate virtually, but that he could send a two minute pre-recorded video in lieu of being allowed to participate. In a statement on August 28, Squire said, “I

decided to run as a candidate for the PPC because I strongly believe that our nation is in dire need of principled, patriotic, and steadfast leadership. With that being said, I cannot in good conscience abandon my principles and be subjected to medical coercion or discrimination in order to participate in this event.” Squire later posted to his Facebook profile, “Yes I could have taken a test, but what type of example would that be setting as a leader? Give in to medical tyranny and nonsense that violates some of our most basic laws in our country? That is not what I stand for or why I joined the PPC.” Squire has been very vocal against mandatory or imposed vaccination in his campaigning. The People’s Party of Canada will be hosting a Freedom March on September 11 in Brantford.

National accounting, tax and consulting firm MNP released a book on Indigenous rights and Canada's historic and ongoing relationship with Indigenous peoples. “An Introductory Guide to Understanding Indigenous Rights” discusses across more than 130 full-colour pages the 300 years of treaties, conflicts, and the journey towards reconciliation — and the collective role these have played in shaping Canada. "This book offers an opportunity to contribute to the continued understanding of the responsibility Canadians have to uphold Indigenous and treaty rights as a fundamental part of who we are as a country," says Clayton Norris, MNP's vice-president of Indigenous services. Norris, a member of Cold Lake First Nation, notes there is an absence of general audience litera-

"With Canadians now once again facing the country's unsettling residential school history, the underlying message is perhaps more important and relevant than ever.”

The book is available to anyone looking to better understand Canada's historic and ongoing relationship with Indigenous peoples and contribute to the journey of truth and reconciliation.

appreciates the immense influence Indigenous and treaty rights have on decision making, goal setting and realizing beneficial outcomes. Norris says “An Introductory Guide to Understanding Indigenous Rights” is an important next step in the firm's commitment to support the Indigenous communi-

ty and advocate for equal and active participation in all aspects of society. "As a national firm, MNP works with many public sector organizations, resource developers and privately-owned businesses who either work with Indigenous nations, employ Indigenous people, or have contracts with Indigenous-run businesses. We believe this book has the potential to drive deeper understanding and conversations that can inform these working relationships,” he says. The firm will be donating proceeds from the sale of the book in support of the Indigenous community. Proceeds will go to the Orange Shirt Society and The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjak Fund – two transformational organizations focused on education, reconciliation, and eliminating prejudice against Indigenous peoples. "Education is a critical step toward building a better Canada," says Sarah Midanik, president and

CEO of the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund. "Too many Canadians have been denied the opportunity to learn about the true history regarding the relationship between Canada and Indigenous Peoples, and this book is a necessary step in the right direction.” "Now more than ever, Canadians are reckoning with the terrible injustice of the residential school system," says Phyllis Webstad, executive director at Orange Shirt Society. "An Introductory Guide to Understanding Indigenous Rights provides much needed context on the events and mindsets that led to its implementation and the effects these continue to have on Indigenous communities across the country." “An Introductory Guide to Understanding Indigenous Rights” is available for purchase through the MNP website at MNP.ca/ indigenousrights.

OHSWEKEN — Six Nations is reporting an increase in COVID cases with 18 confirmed and 72 people in self-isolation. One person is in hospital. Provincially, Ontario is reporting 694 new COVID-19 cases and no new deaths from the virus today. Health Minister Chris-

tine Elliott says 527 of the infected people are not fully vaccinated or have an unknown vaccination status. Ohsweken Public Health has not disclosed the vaccination status of the positive cases on Six Nations territory. Meanwhile, Ontario has dropped runny noses and headaches from the list of COVID-19 symptoms that require children to stay home from school or daycare and get tested for

the virus. The province's updated online screening tool now lists five categories of symptoms ``most commonly associated with COVID-19'' — fever and chills, cough or barking cough, shortness of breath, losing taste or smell, and nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Children reporting any of those symptoms are to stay home, isolate and seek COVID-19 testing. The screening tool

Indigenous children's book `Little Louis' aims to curb COVID 19 vaccine hesitancy with a culturally relevant story By Patrick Sullivan, Sr. Research Assistant, Morning Star Lodge, University of Saskatchewan and Heather O'Watch, Research Assistant, Morning Star Lodge, University of Saskatchewan The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for everyone. But communities are different, and so are their pandemic experiences. After more than a year of uncertainty and frustration, vaccines have brought many a sense that a return to normal is on the horizon. However, health and research communities now face a new challenge: vaccine hesitancy. While there are countless reasons to be vaccine hesitant, we must acknowledge the numerous legitimate reasons for hesitancy. For example, if a community has experienced an exhausting history of medical experimentation, forced or coerced sterilization and breaches of trust by the very institutions presenting the vaccine, their hesitancy is based on cultural or historical factors and entirely distinct from the ``anti-vaxx'' movement. This is the daunting re-

ality for many Indigenous communities across the country. As a result, there is an urgent need to repair trust and promote vaccine confidence through evidence-based knowledge. At Morning Star Lodge, we are part of a partnership between the community research advisory committee at Star Blanket Cree Nation and Solutions for Kids in Pain (SKIP). Together we have collaborated to promote vaccine confidence while demonstrating the importance of community-led research. Reflecting culture We entered into this partnership to promote vaccine uptake under the direction of Indigenous communities. Through our discussions, we came to solutions about ways we could promote COVID-19 vaccination information _ like booklets for Indigenous children and adults. After coming up with several solutions, Star Blanket Cree Nation's research advisory committee members pointed towards an additional need: A children's book, and in came Little Louis. Many Indigenous Peoples grew up without medical information that respected or reflected their culture, the CRAC

recognized the need to reverse this trend. A children's book that reflects the identities of Indigenous children is important for making information accessible to all. SKIP, Morning Star Lodge and Indigenous community members began to prepare a children's book that is engaging, educational and relevant for Indigenous children experiencing needle fear or vaccine hesitancy _ seeing their culture reflected in a children's book can make all the difference when it comes to getting the jab. Needle fear or hesitation is a common feeling and there is minimal children's literature on the topic, especially literature that is culturally relevant. The Star Blanket Cree Nation's cultural, community and storytelling expertise far exceeds that of SKIP or Morning Star Lodge. The community research advisory committee members live in, and are from, the communities we serve, their Indigenous Knowledge adds depth and relevance to all of our projects. Their guidance and leadership ensures that developments, like Little Louis, directly reflect community needs. Indigenous Peoples

expertise, guidance and leadership Little Louis talks about how to prepare for getting a vaccine, what vaccines feel like and what parents and children can do in order to be supported. The intention is that Little Louis will evolve into several different stories that will target different audiences and address different issues as time goes on and different issues arise. This sort of flexibility is a requisite to working with dynamic communities. Inflexible research was and is often the norm. ``Helicopter'' research (where researchers enter communities, collect data and leave, never to be heard from again) was and is still practised. This entirely one-sided interaction always benefits researchers but rarely, if ever, benefits communities. It frequently misrepresents realities for Indigenous communities and actively creates negative stereotypes that have been used to justify systemic racism. Historically, research with Indigenous Peoples was not conducted ``in a good way.'' Today, researchers can be guided to correct the errors of the past through princi-

ples like OCAP (ownership, control, access and possession) and the CARE and FAIR principles for Indigenous data governance. Further, researchers can learn about ethical engagement and cultural safety to ensure their research is truly ethical and upholds community perspectives. In practice, this means Indigenous Peoples should be at the helm of any research that may impact them or is about them. Doing so can prevent harmful misrepresentations, promote self-determination and contribute to solutions Indigenous communities actually need _ like a children's book that addresses vaccine hesitancy. The following is a synopsis of ``Little Louis.'' Check the Morning Star Lodge blog for updates on publication. Meet Little Louis Little Louis tells the story of Louis, a young boy preparing for his COVID-19 vaccination. Louis starts by sharing his fears and frustrations with safety restrictions and the vaccine. His family listens and tells him how brave he is for making the decision to keep himself and the community safe.

Still nervous and hesitant about the vaccine, Louis' family has an idea to create a ``little'' Louis, out of paper, which he can bring to the vaccination clinic during his appointment. Louis' family also shares the story of a brave Metis leader named Gabriel Dumont and his rifle, le petit (little one). The night before the vaccination appointment, Louis dreams of going on a fishing adventure with Little Louis where they reel in what they think is a fish but it turns out to be a big needle! Louis and Little Louis both bravely face the needle, reeling it in until it turns into the big catch they hoped for. The next morning Louis shares his dream with his family. They tell him that he was brave for facing his fears. Finally, Louis goes to his vaccine appointment with Little Louis by his side. The doctor asks to see Little Louis to give him the vaccine first. Observing that Little Louis was brave and didn't get scared, Louis is ready and the doctor gives Louis his vaccine. Both Louis and Little Louis are now protected from COVID-19!

Local foundation raises $21,500 for Chanie Wenjack fund DONNA DURIC

TWO ROW TIMES

A local foundation has raised $21,500 for the Chanie Wenjack fund in a symbolic honouring of the 215 Indigenous children whose remains were found in a hidden grave at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School in May. The cheque was presented at the Chiefswood Museum on Six Nations last Thursday in keeping with the museum’s slogan “where cultures meet” – one of the founding principles of the Chanie Wenjack Fund. The Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack fund was established by the late Tragically Hip frontman to help educate Canadians about the horrors of residential schools. The fund became Downie’s legacy in his final years as he fought a terminal brain tumour, with a goal

of encouraging reconciliation between Indigenous people and settlers and building a better Canada. The fund was named after a 12-year-old Indigenous boy, Chanie Wenjack, froze to death during a 600 km journey trying to escape the Kenora Residential School in 1966.

His tragic life and death became famous thanks to Downie and his brother Mike who wrote an article about Wenjack in Maclean’s Magazine. Wenjack later became the subject of a poignant Canadian “Heritage Minute” – historical short vignettes created by the

federal government and aired on national television to tell snippets of Canadian history. “Gord was distraught that he never knew residential schools existed,” said Jordan-MacGregor, development associate at the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund. “He

felt compelled that other Canadians started to learn this history so he wrote ten poems, which became 10 songs, which became a graphic novel, which is The Secret Path multi-media project.” It was around that same time Downie discovered he had terminal brain

cancer. “He used his remaining time with us here on earth to continue to promote the story of Chanie Wenjack and everyone learning about Canada’s true history. Our goal is to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education and connection between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people throughout Canada.” She said, “Once you understand that history, you can move that reconciliation forward. There are thousands like Chanie.” The Million Dollar Roundtable Foundation is a Canada-wide foundation aimed at raising funds for grassroots charities across the country. When the news of the discovery at Kamloops came out, one of the members suggested they each donate $215 to an Indigenous charity and the amount came out to squarely $21,500, said Evers.

How parents can be 'emotion coaches' as kids navigate back to school As children head back to school, families are once again facing a September of uncertainty. This worry is compounded by depressive and anxiety symptoms in children and adolescents that have doubled in the past 18 months. What is emotion coaching? Emotion coaching is a pattern of communication

that emerged from the work of psychologist John Gottman, and has since become embedded in many types of therapy. That said, it's not complicated and anyone can do it. In its simplest form, emotion coaching is a two-step process that parents can use when their child is distressed. 1. Parents first validate

the emotion. This requires that they identify the emotion by saying something like: ``I understand you might be feeling worried ?'' and then by explaining the emotion: ``? because it's almost September, because you are worried about what back to school will look like and because you have been home for so long.'' This conveys to a child that their feelings

make sense, that they are not wrong or bad for feeling the way they do, and that their parent understands them. To remember this step, parents can remind themselves that you've got to feel it to heal it. 2. After validating the emotion, parents provide support. This may be emotional support that is comforting, reassuring

and hopeful. It could also be a sign of togetherness, in saying something like: ``I will be here with you every step of the way this fall.'' Next, practical support can take the form of distraction, redirection, problem-solving or encouragement. If a child is focused on the uncertainty of September, parents may suggest doing a fun

activity together. If an adolescent is refusing school, parents could provide encouragement or set limits and reinforce expectations. The important thing is the order of emotion coaching steps _ first a parent helps their child to feel the emotion (validation), and then the parent helps their child to feel better (support). Not only will emotion coaching help calm the emotional storm in the moment, but it will also teach children how to manage their own emotions in the future. Parents' own emotions Children transitioning back to school will likely require additional support. Emotion coaching is not complicated, but it can be very difficult for parents to respond with patience and empathy when at their wits end.

Ryerson University name change

TORONTO — Ryerson University in downtown Toronto will be changing its name. The school's board of governors approved a motion today to accept all 22 recommendations from a special task force, including one to rename the university. The task force was formed to address the legacy of Egerton Ryerson, an architect of Canada's residential school system and the namesake of the university. More than 1,300 unmarked graves of Indigenous children have been found on the former sites of residential schools this summer. Other recommendations put forward by the task force include sharing materials to recognize the legacy of Egerton Ryerson, and providing more opportunities to learn about Indigenous history. Mohamed Lachemi, Ryerson University's president, says the task force has shown how the school ``can move forward and write the next chapter in our history.''

'Clearly discriminatory and systemically racist': Report on B.C. school board CANADIAN PRESS

editor@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

VICTORIA _ A report that found systemic racism in a British Columbia school board and called for a provincewide review is ``vindicating,'' the deputy chief of a First Nation in the province said Saturday. Jayde Chingee said the McLeod Lake Indian Band and its partners at the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation have tried raising concerns with school officials about anti-Indigenous racism. The report offers a path forward that could be replicated across the province, she said. ``I think it proves our concerns were real,'' Chingee said in an interview. ``Sometimes we have to reveal the ugly truth in order to make things better.'' Education Minister Jennifer Whiteside appointed special advisors Kory Wilson and Catherine McGregor to review governance practices at the Prince George Board of Education in February.

Their report, released late Friday and based on 56 interviews and a review of documents, found Indigenous students are disproportionately held back, placed in alternative programs or classes and removed from the typical graduation path. ``Unfortunately, we heard many examples of behaviours and practises that are clearly discriminatory and systemically racist,'' the report says. ``Though some will argue it is not intentional the outcomes have disproportionate effects on Indigenous students and can only be explained as such.'' There is a clear and palpable lack of trust between many Indigenous stakeholders, First Nations and the school district, as well as a ``substantial culture of fear'' around raising concerns, the report says. It quotes one respondent saying they were told not to use their Indigenous name because ``this isn't the place for politics.'' One person reported hearing someone complain about having to ``hang

up that stupid flag'' in reference to flying a First Nations flag, while another heard someone say ``the natives a restless'' in response to drumming. ``I walk into a school and my chest tightens,'' another said in the report. The Education Ministry says in a statement that beginning immediately, former school district superintendent Rod Allen will join the special advisors and work with the board to draft a work plan for implementing their recommendations and improve everything from relationships with local First Nations to staffing and financial planning. The special advisers will submit a final report to outline the progress made by the board in meeting government's expectations in March 2022. The minister, acting superintendent of the school district and school board chairman could not immediately be reached for comment. Among the most concerning findings, the report authors say, was the failure

for many Indigenous kids to be deemed eligible for kindergarten, even if they were in full day ``pre-K.'' And while alternative programs may be seen as the best way to provide targeted support, they have in many cases evolved into ``holding tanks'' for Indigenous students. In some cases, the modified programs saw school attendance reduced to as little as an hour a day or one day a week, the report says. The school bus schedules also prevent many Indigenous students from participating in after-school programs, French immersion schools or other choice schools, it says. The racism identified in the report was not limited to the schools but also the broader community, including passionate pushback to a unanimous decision by school trustees to rename Kelly Road Secondary to Shas Ti Secondary, a Dakelh word for grizzly crossing. People were up in arms, students walked out of the school with support from their parents, blockades went up, kids were in-

volved in fights and it was traumatic for Indigenous people, the report says. As a result, both names were installed on the front of the school above the entrance, however their location above two sets of doors made it appear as though there were segregated entrances. The report also raised concerns about how federal COVID-19 funding was spent at the board. The special advisors were only able to make one visit to Prince George due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and say they entered the investigation with open minds. ``What we found was much more complicated than we thought and so multi-layered that we do not feel we have gotten to the bottom of all the issues,'' they write. They recommend that the province commission a broader probe into B.C. schools similar to ``In Plain Sight,'' a report on anti-Indigenous racism in the health-care system by retired judge Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond.

The school district has a particularly high number of Indigenous learners and the post-report response could be a model for other jurisdictions, it says. They also recommend creating an ombudsperson position so that those fearful of retaliation can feel safer making reports. ``Due to the culture of fear, we think there may be more examples of individuals who feel they cannot identify their concerns for fear of retribution,'' it says. Turpel-Lafond, who is academic director of the Residential School History and Dialogue Centre at the University of B.C., supported calls for a deeper probe. ``This report was very helpful but it certainly struck me as a kind of tipof-the-iceberg report,'' she said. She said she was alarmed by the report's suggestion that many people feared retaliation if they spoke out. She heard similar fears when she was investigating health care, highlighting the important role an ombudsperson could play, she said.

ONTARIO ENERGY BOARD NOTICE TO ALL CUSTOMERS OF HYDRO ONE NETWORKS INC. Hydro One Networks Inc. has applied to change the amount it charges to transmit electricity in Ontario and its electricity distribution rates and other charges. Learn more. Have your say. Hydro One Networks Inc. has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for approval of a plan to set the amount it charges for using its transmission system and the amount it charges for electricity distribution in each of five years beginning on January 1, 2023 and ending on December 31, 2027. Transmission Ratepayers The Ontario Energy Board’s decision on the transmission portion of this application will have an effect on all electricity consumers in Ontario. The cost of transmission is reflected in the delivery charges included on customer bills. If the transmission portion of the application is approved as filed, a typical residential customer and a typical general service customer of Hydro One Networks Inc. would see the following monthly changes: 2023

Other former customers of these distributors, including businesses, may be affected as well. Although Hydro One Networks Inc. has also acquired the electricity distribution assets of Peterborough Hydro and Orillia Hydro, distribution rates for former customers of these distributors will not be impacted by this application. Other Hydro One Networks Inc. has also applied to change other miscellaneous charges, conditions of service, rate class requirements, and establish new rate classes. It is important to review the application carefully to determine whether you may be affected by these changes. THE ONTARIO ENERGY BOARD WILL HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) will hold a public hearing to consider Hydro One’s application. During this hearing, which could be an oral or written hearing, we will question Hydro One on its case for a rate change. We will also hear questions and arguments from individuals that have registered to participate (called intervenors) in the OEB’s hearing. At the end of this hearing, the OEB will decide what, if any, rate change will be allowed. If Hydro One’s application is approved, the OEB’s review in the years 2023 through 2027 will be limited to ensuring certain annual adjustments are made in accordance with the approved rate plan. Utilities such as Hydro One typically apply for a full review of their rates every five years. Any rate changes for the years in between are made by applying an OEB-approved formula which is tied to inflation and other factors intended to promote efficiency. You may not get notice of future rate changes made by applying the formula. The OEB is an independent and impartial public agency. We make decisions that serve the public interest. Our goal is to promote a financially viable and efficient energy sector that provides you with reliable energy services at a reasonable cost. BE INFORMED AND HAVE YOUR SAY You have the right to information regarding this application and to be involved in the process. • You can review Hydro One’s application on the OEB’s website now • You can file a letter with your comments, which will be considered during the hearing • You can become an intervenor. As an intervenor, you can ask questions about Hydro One’s application and make arguments on whether the OEB should approve Hydro One’s request. Apply by September 14, 2021 or the hearing will go ahead without you and you will not receive any further notice of the proceeding • At the end of the process, you can review the OEB’s decision and its reasons on our website LEARN MORE These proposed changes relate to Hydro One’s transmission and distribution services and provide the total bill impacts. Our file number for this case is EB-2021-0110. To learn more about this hearing, find instructions on how to file a letter with your comments or become an intervenor, or to access any document related to this case, select the file number EB-2021-0110 from the list on the OEB website: www.oeb.ca/notice. You can also phone our Public Information Centre at 1-877632-2727 with any questions. ORAL VS. WRITTEN HEARING There are two types of OEB hearings – oral and written. Hydro One has requested an oral hearing. The OEB is considering this request. If you have comments, you can write to the OEB by September 14, 2021. PRIVACY If you write a letter of comment, your name and the content of your letter will be put on the public record and the OEB website.

Get to know Alison Macdonald, Liberal candidate for Brantford-Brant Alison Macdonald is a band member of Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation and a resident of Eagle Place with deep roots in the community. According to her official campaign website, as the Liberal candidate in Brantford-Brant, Macdonald is committed to being a strong voice for the community in Ottawa. Macdonald has firsthand experience with many of the challenges facing Brantford-Brant. As the owner and operator of a family and criminal law firm on Six Nations, she has seen how the COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges for small business owners. She is also the mother of three. As Member of Parliament, Macdonald said

she will build on these experiences and work with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team to ensure that all parents have access to affordable, high-quality childcare. She is equally committed to ensuring that Canadians get the financial and health supports they need as Canada finishes the fight against COVID-19. Two Row Times caught up with Macdonald last week to talk about her platform and her background. TRT – Where did you grow up and where do you live now? Macdonald – My mom is from Six Nations and my dad is from Mount Hope. My parents met at high school in Caledonia and they got married in 1969 at the Mohawk Chapel. That’s when my mom lost

I’ve had an office on Six Nations since 2005 and I live in Eagle Place currently. TRT – What areas does your riding cover? Macdonald – The riding covers part of Mississaugas of the Credit, although not all of the territory. All of Six Nations, all of Brant County, Brantford, Paris, St. George, Mount Pleasant, Scotland, Burford, all those main areas and a few others in-between. TRT – What ways do you think growing up on Six Nations prepared you for this role? Macdonald – In many

be the Mohawk Institute Residential School. Thousands of Indigenous children, many from Six Nations, attended the school for over a century in a government-mandated attempt to assimilate Indigenous people into Canadian culture. Children faced rampant abuse at the schools, including starvation, physical, sexual, and psychological abuse, as well as forced physical labour, in an attempt to “kill the Indian in the child.” The horrifying legacy of residential schools in Canada blew up on a global scale this past May when the remains of 150 Indigenous children were found in an old, hidden grave at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, sending shockwaves around the world. Since then, thousands more remains have been found at residential schools across the country. Brian General, presi-

dent of the Six Nations chapter of the Redrum Motorcycle Club, was heartened to see the huge turnout of allies at the Woodland Cultural Centre on Sunday who stood in solidarity with Six Nations.

“We’re not different,” he said of the allies that came out on Sunday. “We’re different colour skin, we have different coloured vests but we’re all the same. They come here to learn. They want to know what’s really going on.”

He said the members of Redrum were “shocked” upon learning of the discovery of the bodies and wanted to do something to help. “It was offensive. They wanted to find a way to help in any way possible.” Hundreds of riders turned out in orange shirts, the colour associated with support for residential school survivors. “It’s a beautiful sight,” said General, as riders geared up along the long driveway of the former Mohawk Institute to head out onto the road for Niagara on the Lake. The federal and provincial governments recently committed $9 million to help repair the crumbling old building, which General says needs to be preserved to educate future generations about the horrors of residential schools.

Arena Lacrosse League to return this December By TRT Staff with notes from ALL.ca ALL President Paul St. John announced at the start of August that the Arena Lacrosse League will look to open its 2022 season the weekend of December 18-19 pending arena availability. "It's extremely exciting to announce that plans for the 2022 season are in full force as we get ready to return to playing in what has quickly become the top league outside of the NLL during the winter months," said St. John. "If everything continues to open up, the ALL will finally get back to doing what we do best, and that is sending players to the NLL." Arena Lacrosse League has quickly become the number one provider of players to the National

Lacrosse League in-season, with almost 15% of NLL rosters including players that have played in the ALL. With NLL free agency upon us as well as draft choices, the number of current and former ALL players that will attend upcoming NLL training camps is now over 20%. "We are so proud of what we have put together as an organization from the GM's/Head Coaches down to our ticket takers and in game staff. They have all bought in to providing a professional ran league to provide our players, game officials and our coaches the opportunity to develop under NLL style play and showcase themselves for possible advancement to the Pro level," St. John continued. When asked about the upcoming 2022 season St. John added, "we have

a schedule ready to go and are just waiting on the venues to approve our dates and our return-toplay plans. With Christmas and New Year's Day falling on our traditional Saturday game days we will aim to get a weekend in before the holiday season and reopen January 3. Teams will again play a 14-game schedule and the final will take place in mid-April.” ALL Combine and Draft information will be announced soon. Target dates fall into late November. "NLL camps will be winding down as they head towards their December 3 opening day and we will ensure that all players that are sent back to us will be ready to jump right into an ALL team training camp to get ready for our season".

Arena Lacrosse League is looking to a December start for the 2022 season.

AKWESASNE — One of the first sporting events at Akwesasne’s ‘Turtle Dome’ since before the pandemic, became one in honour of the survivors of residential schools across the country. What began as talks between the Junior B Indians and the Junior A Orangeville Northmen for an exhibition game turned into a 5-team event termed the Survivor’s Cup, with proceeds from the event donated to benefit programs for suicide prevention and mental health. The U19 showcase was wrapped up on Sunday, August 22, at the Anowara’kowa Arena. In addition to the Indians and the Northmen, the Mimico Lacrosse Club, the Nepean Knights and TriNations, a team of players from the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory and the First Nations Lacrosse Association all participated

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Tehoka Nanticoke was selected as the third overall draft pick from the first round to be a new addition to the Buffalo Bandits. The Bandits selected the forward with their first pick of the night. Nanticoke was the No. 1 high school lacrosse recruit in 2017 and played collegiately at the University of Albany. In 40 career games for the Great Danes from 2017 to 2021, Nanticoke recorded 170 points (109+61) and picked up 45 ground balls. “Grew up going to Bandits games, was even the ball boy for them a few games. Words don’t do justice for how grateful I am to be joining [the Buffalo Bandits] and to make this long awaited jump to the next level,” he wrote to Twitter. Nanticoke led Albany in goals (50) and points (82) as a freshman in 2018 and was named the America East Rookie of the Year. He was also named to the America East All-Conference First Team in both 2018 and 2019. A native of Six Nations, Ontario, Nanticoke was a member of the Iroquois Nationals at the 2019 World Lacrosse Men’s Indoor World Championships. SUBMITTED

Tewaaraton Lacrosse League cancelled after OLA amendments STAFF REPORT

editor@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

After the announcement came for the cancellation of the Tewaaraton Lacrosse League (TLL) on August 17, the revelation for “why” was explained in a press release on the TLL website. “Due to the continued threat and uncertainty placed on the young players with just one week before the planned TLL/NLL Showcase event, the Tewaaraton Lacrosse League in conjunction with the NLL, regretfully announce that the planned showcase/ combine event that was to take place in St. Catharines over the August 21-22, 2021, weekend has been cancelled,” reads the release. “‘The TLL was fully committed to making this showcase event happen to give the NLL teams a chance to see some talent-

ed young lacrosse players show-off their skills just one week before the 2021 NLL draft in Buffalo, NY” said TLL President Lewis Staats, who explained that many of the logistics were already set. “However, even with all this preparation the TLL was not able to overcome the obstacle that the Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA) had put in place with their announcement of June 3, 2021, stating that any players who sign or play in non-OLA sanctioned league (i.e. TLL) including combines or other in-person events will be suspended from playing in the OLA for two years, the current year and the following year.’” This statement was reinforced with an amended version dated from August 13, indicating that all league Commissioners (Jr C, Jr B, Jr A, Sr C, Sr B and Sr A) unanimously supported enforcing rule 6.07 and that they would uphold suspending any

player who would have signed up to participate in the Showcase for the 2022 season. “‘With this threat of suspension by the OLA hanging over their heads, we had players that verbally stated they wanted to sign-up for the showcase event but were afraid to and also had players who had signed up but then withdrew their registration for fear of being suspended by the OLA and its leagues,’” explained the TLL release. The TLL has since filed a complaint to the Competition Bureau of Canada regarding the OLA’s position so that “the players who get to freely decide which lacrosse team or league they want to play for and can do so without any threats of suspension as they make that choice.” The OLA amendment mentioned form August 13, reads that the R6.07 is not a new policy, but has been amended in the OLA Rules and Regulations and

the changes are currently in effect. “The Ontario Lacrosse Association Board of Directors have reviewed the Ontario Lacrosse Association’s Rules and Regulations in light of a non-sanctioned league publicly claiming to protect members in good standing of the OLA who participate in the junior series,” following with: “(a) Players who have been registered, protected, or rostered with any team in the Corporation shall not play or sign with any other team or in any other league without the written permission of the League Commissioner.

The OLA acknowledged that every player has an individual right to opportunities outside of the OLA, but iterated that any player who makes the choice to participate in a non-sanctioned league directly competing with the OLA’s league calendar must understand the ramifications of that choice including, but not limited to, being ineligible to participate with the leagues governed by the Ontario Lacrosse Association, Team Ontario and/or Team Canada (Lacrosse Canada National Team Program Policy and Guidelines, 1.1.4). Under the amended policy, any players that choose to play in a

non-sanctioned league will be ineligible to participate in any Ontario Lacrosse sanctioned league for the balance of that season and for the entire season following. This includes: Ontario Junior “A” Lacrosse League, Ontario Junior “B” Lacrosse League, Ontario Junior “C” Lacrosse League, Major Series Lacrosse, Ontario Series Lacrosse, Senior Series Lacrosse and Ontario Women’s Box Lacrosse League. Participation in a non-sanctioned league is defined as “involvement in tryouts, combines, training, tournaments, league games, playoff games or other in-person events. This does not include academic, intramural or school-based leagues, winter recreation leagues, or professional lacrosse leagues as recognized by the Ontario Lacrosse Association.

Canadian 'Reservation Dogs' star on increasing Indigenous representation in the U.S. and mainstream media STAFF REPORT

editor@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

TORONTO — Five years ago, Canadian actor D'Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai never would've expected to see a series like ``Reservation Dogs'' south of the border. But with it and several other Indigenous-led projects finally getting bigger platforms in the United States, change is afoot when it comes to such mainstream Hollywood representation, he says. The 19-year-old, who grew up in Toronto and is of Oji-Cree, Anishinaabe and Guyanese descent, stars in the buzzy halfhour FX comedy as one of four Indigenous teens in rural Oklahoma mourning the death of a friend and resorting to petty crime to fund a getaway to California. An Indigenous team including Oscar-winning ``Jojo Rabbit'' filmmaker Taika Waititi and writ-

Reservation Dogs is being praised across Turtle Island as the representation that Indigenous people from all reserves have been waiting for. FX

er-producer Sterlin Harjo created the show, which debuts Wednesday on the Star section of Disney Plus in Canada. It premiered on Hulu in the United States in early August. Oscar-winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins and Emmy-nominated

actor-screenwriter Mindy Kaling are among those who've tweeted raves about the series, in which every writer, director and main cast member is Indigenous. ``Five years ago this would be not even rare _ it'd be impossible,'' Woon-

A-Tai said in a recent phone interview. ``But now I think that's ... definitely going to change.'' Woon-A-Tai noted the series comes a few months after the Peacock streaming service debuted ``Rutherford Falls,'' which touts the largest Indigenous

writing staff for an American TV show and stars another Toronto-based actor, Plains Cree performer Michael Greyeyes. Then there's Harjo's upcoming Indigenous basketball film for Netflix, ``Rez Ball,'' which he co-wrote with Navajo filmmaker

Sydney Freeland, who is directing. With so many Indigenous projects coming out, the word ``rare'' won't be attached to such shows in the future, Woon-A-Tai said. ``I feel like that's going to be the normal thing, eventually. I'm so happy and proud to be a part of one of the first few projects to start that.'' Of course, such representation isn't new in Canada, where the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network has given a major national platform to Indigenous-led series for many years. Examples include ``Moccasin Flats,'' which also aired on Showcase Television, and ``Mohawk Girls,'' which also aired on the CBC. As it turns out, several actors from this side of the border are also in ``Reservation Dogs,'' which was filmed and set in Okmulgee, Okla., and features characters of Muscogee

Reservation Dogs continued... Creek and Seminole Creek heritage. Other homegrown performers include Devery Jacobs and Paulina Alexis, who co-star as two members of the friend group; Sarah Podemski, who plays the mother to Woon-ATai's character; and Gary Farmer, who plays Uncle Brownie. Woon-A-Tai plays Bear Smallhill, whose conscience weighs on him as he and his friends get up to mischief. Lane Factor plays the other member of the friend group. ``When I first met Taika and Sterlin at the audition, at the end of the audition they told me that if Taika and Sterlin had a kid, I would be that kid,'' WoonA-Tai said with a laugh. Harjo, who is a member of the Seminole Nation and has Muskogee heritage, used his own upbringing in Oklahoma as inspiration for the story. Woon-A-Tai said every main character is based on someone from the childhood of either Harjo or Waititi, who is of M?ori descent. Farmer's charac-

ter, for instance, is inspired by Harjo's dad, and the late friend was based on someone Harjo knew. But the creators also took inspiration from the actors, adjusting the scripts the more they got to know them. ``Everything you see inside that show, which may seem ridiculous, it's probably true, it probably happened,'' said Woon-ATai, whose mother's family descends from Guyana, while his father's family hails from the isolated Big Trout Lake reserve in northwestern Ontario. This is Woon-A-Tai's biggest TV role to date, after smaller parts on series including the CBC's ``Murdoch Mysteries'' and APTN's ``Tribal.'' He was also in Tracey Deer's acclaimed 2020 Canadian film ``Beans,'' which also starred Alexis. He said he's glad his first foray into comedy is this project, considering ``Indigenous communities are just so funny.'' ``You may hear that, but it's very true. We tackle a lot of issues with comedy,''

he said. ``A lot of times when you speak to elders in traditional language, they'll always be cracking jokes.'' Woon-A-Tai said he prepared for the role by learning Muscogee Creek words and traditions, and digging into the history of Oklahoma and its Indigenous communities, learning about tragedies including the genocidal forced displacement of tribes known as the Trail of Tears in the 1800s. Overall, the series ``gives people a chance to tear down misconceptions with Indigenous folks'' and is ``normalizing'' Indigenous life, said Woon-A-Tai. ``I'm very honoured just to be a part of this project,'' he said. ``The fact that I get to represent a Nation that I'm thousands of miles away from ... talking to locals, doing it accurately _ that's what the really important part was for me, because yes, we are all native but we come from very different diverse communities that have different traditions.''

decisions that make sense for everyone. TRT – Where do you see yourself five years from now? Macdonald – Hopefully on a beach. Back vacationing. If I am the MP then I would be running again and back in Ottawa. If not, then I would be continuing in the office that I work at. Business as usual, continuing my litigation practice. TRT – What is your comfort level dealing with tough issues? Macdonald – I never underestimate anyone and that is because no one should underestimate anyone in return. Be prepared, ready, knowledgeable, and for me, that is not an issue. Fighting on behalf of a parent who has lost their child, which is business as usual for me day in and day out, is one of the most difficult and serious tasks a person can do. If I can do that with a full heart for 17 years, I can absolutely expand on that in terms of tackling broader issues and have no problem in skillfully confronting an issue and being strategic in talking to people and making sure I’m always listening. People need to be heard and you have to listen. TRT – When did you become interested in politics? Macdonald – I honestly don’t feel that I’m interested in politics. I’m interested in helping people; advocating on a larger scale and bringing the skills that I’ve learned to date to the greater community. No one has not been affected by the last 17 months. I’ve been contemplating running for office the last few years but I have had family commitments and

also commitments to my clients so the time was not right. My family and my clients are first and foremost and will always be, regardless of any extracurricular pursuit I may have. I think the discovery of the unmarked graves and the outpouring of love and support from largely non-Indigenous communities, who had no idea or concept of the history, has been inspiring. Of course, Indigenous people know, we’ve always known. It’s inspired me to say that this is the time to run; the moment where my unique history in terms of being in both worlds my entire life, this is the time to put myself out there. TRT – How do you work as part of a team? Macdonald – I’ve been working as part of a team for a long time now, in my office. I experienced a lot of adversity in jobs as a young lawyer early on. There was a lot of hardship when a young lawyer. I always vowed I would never want to have a work environment where people come into the office hanging their heads or dreading coming to work. We need to rely on each other and move forward together because we have to be able to trust what’s going on inside our four walls at all times. I believe that that is an integral approach to being an MP. I am very humbled to see how hard the campaign team I have right now is working. TRT – What are your top three areas of focus? Macdonald – First step if elected would be becoming acquainted with going to Ottawa and doing all the new initial MP training. From what I’m learning

from the communities I’ve spoken to, people are concerned with housing, mental health, the treatment of vulnerable persons in all of our communities. I have personal experience with that—parents and people in the criminal justice system, parents losing children and acting on behalf of those children is a vital area. Reconciliation is a balance that has to be approached delicately, managing bother sides of both worlds. That’s where I think I can fit in the best if I am elected. Part of those meetings is about having a voice and speaking up to the governing party and ruling government. We need to turn this riding back to Liberal because a lot of those conversations haven’t been heard. TRT – Why is it important for young people to care about politics? Macdonald – One of my areas of concern is voter apathy. I am very passionate about supporting youth. They need to have a say and need to feel heard. They matter because they are the future of the country over the next 30 to 40 years. The youth need to come out, be informed, and vote. TRT – What is the best way for community members to reach you? Macdonald – I like email. More than happy to read every email and reply. One thing I pride myself in is being reachable and people can get a hold of me nearly 24-7. If I haven’t responded it likely means I just haven’t seen the email yet. I am also on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Facebook: Alison4BB Instagram: alison4bb Twitter: @TeamAlison4BB
