Hamilton police accused of police brutality against Indigenous people DONNA DURIC


Come see us for great savings

Members of Hamilton’s Indigenous community, along with allies, are calling for justice after an Indigenous man in his 30s was injured during an altercation with a Hamilton police officer. The officer is now facing an assault charge stemming from the incident but only after video evidence came to light in May showing the arrest. The officer was earlier cleared by the SIU — Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit — which is the province’s watchdog that investigates incidents where citizens are injured during any situation involving police. The assault charge came only after the video was presented to Hamilton Police. “Recently, one of our Indigenous residents suffered a vicious assault by a Hamilton police officer,” said Audrey Davis, director of the Hamilton Regional Indian Friendship Centre at a press conference Tues-

day in front of Hamilton Police headquarters. The officer, Brian Wren, is now facing assault charges regarding the incident, where an Indigenous man in his early 30s sustained injuries to his neck, according to his mom Olga Tomchuk. Members of Hamilton’s Indigenous community called on the police to take a number of measures, including hiring a specific Indigenous liaison, to address systemic racism and police brutality against Indigenous people in the city.

"Police violence against Indigenous people is not a new thing,” said Davis. “Such acts are the foundation of Canadian history. These institutions have been instrumental in the execution of historical atrocities and acts of aggression such as residential schools, Oka, Ipperwash, live birth alerts, the Sixties Scoop, and Starlight Tours,” she said. While some efforts are being made toward reconciliation, she acknowledged, no part of Canada is untouched by violence against indigenous.

Nobody from the Hamilton Police attended the press conference. Olga said her son, Patrick, was allegedly attempting to steal a car when he was arrested, saying excessive force was used. “This has not been the first time,” she said, regarding her son being mistreated by police. “I don’t think it’s right. They get away with it. If you’re here to protect and serve, don’t do this to my son. Please.” She says the video she saw showed police placing a knee on her son’s neck and he is now on pain medicine to deal with the resulting injury. She and her daughter, who both attended the press conference, admitted he is “no angel” but that the force used was excessive. “He knows he didn’t fight back with the police,” said Tomchuk. “The police offer had his foot on the back of his neck. Usually Patrick gets up and runs but he didn’t this time. He just laid there. It was a good thing there was a ci-

vilian there taping all this.” Davis said there might not have been a charge or investigation if there was no video evidence. She said police should all be required to wear body cameras at all times when interacting with the public. “All too often their (Indigenous people) stories are not taken seriously, or dismissed, or it is they who are victimized,” said Davis. “It is important to call attention to these matters as they arise and advocate for change that is already too late in coming. Society must always hold police accountable.” The group called for a number of changes to combat institutional racism among the city’s police, including: that Hamilton Police and law enforcement ensure Wren faces “serious consequences for his violent actions”; that a third-party investigation be commenced into whether or not a hate crime occurred; and that investigations into prior instances of police brutality against the victim or any member of the Hamilton Indigenous community.

Gathering of Good Minds brings more youth events to Six Nations Handpicked performers and speakers inspire youth at the Gathering Place by the Grand



Public speaker and community event organizer Cody Lookinghorse wishes there had been more youth-centred events focused on keeping a good mind when he was growing up on Six Nations. Lookinghorse, now 24, is making sure Six Nations’ youth today aren’t going to go without. Lookinghorse organized an event called the “Gathering of Good Minds” at the Gathering

Place by the Grand to create a space for youth to share stories, inspire one another and learn different ways to heal from intergenerational trauma and other factors that may cloud a good mind. “We spoke about topics such as mental health, healing, language and a lot more,” he said. “I wish I had something like this when I was a young teenager because I didn’t have many good role models in my life,” said Looking-

And I love to see when community shows up for you.” Lookinghorse handpicked the speakers and performers for the event to inspire Indigenous youth to find where their interests may lie and find their niche. At the peak of the event, there were roughly 50 heads who came out aged 12 to 28, which Lookinghorse said was a great turnout for the first event he has put together in his name. One of the lessons he hopes people take away from the event is that it’s important to give back to your community and participate in what’s available. “I want young youth to know it’s OK to give back to your community and you won’t be judged for it,” he said. Lookinghorse said it’s important to have more

events like this on Six Nations because you never know what someone is going through. “Deep hurts and intergenerational trauma. Loss of family,” said Lookinghorse. “You never know what someone else may be going through. I know

that as a young Indigenous man living on the reservation can be hard and I feel as though simply meeting someone new, or seeing a familiar face at an event like this could lighten your day in a way that you weren’t expecting it to.”

Hereditary leadership says elected chief lies in letter trying to erase them NAHNDA GARLOW


SIX NATIONS — On Wednesday a collective of hereditary leaders and their supporters, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council (HCCC), held a press conference to address a letter recently sent to municipalities by Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Chief Mark Hill. Hill’s letter said municipalities along the Haldimand Tract were being misinformed by provincial bureaucrats directing development talks along the Tract to include HCCC, the Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Elected Chief Mark Hill said that was false information and directed municipalities to only speak to the elected council. This clarification, according to the elected council, comes from what the province itself requires for accommodation and consultation

HCCC gave a press conference on Wednesday morning to address a letter sent by elected council. HCCC claims the elected council is spreading false information and that the elected leadership is not Haudenosaunee. HCCC claims they are the sole authority to represent the Haudenosaunee people. TRT

on the Haldimand Tract as well as a Supreme Court ruling that says the elected council are the only entity legally permitted to do collective business for Six Nations membership. HCCC says the letter is spreading false information and attempting to erase them from their roles as leaders of the people. “Elected council does not in any way, shape or form represent the Haudenosaunee people on any issue,” said Roger Silver-

smith, one of the HCCC’s hereditary leaders for the Cayuga nation. In a statement, the HCCC say the elected leadership are spreading false information, are not Haudenosaunee people and have been using Haudenosaunee symbols and language to project authority. This is the latest back and forth in an ongoing battle over who represents the Haudenosaunee people who are Six Nations band

members — the elected leadership or the hereditary leadership. “You sent a statement out saying you’re the government of the Haudenosaunee, you have no right to claim that,” said the HCCC Secretary Leroy ‘Jock’ Hill. “That kind of come out of left field that they issue a statement that they’re my government. They’ve never declared that they are the government of the Haudenosaunee and I hope they never do again because

everyone knows its false.” The elected leadership asserting their authority was just one burn the HCCC addressed. The next had to do with who is on the receiving end of financial compensation when it comes to development along the Haldimand Tract. “They’re out there trying to get people to do business on their side,” said Silversmith, and said that developers have been increasingly working with the HCCC’s development group HDI since the HCCC issued a moratorium and public relations campaign to raise awareness of the governance divide between hereditary leadership and the elected system. To date there has been no public disclosure of who those talks are with, how much those developers have contributed to Six Nations, under what terms and what environmental considerations are being discussed in those agreements. That is something the elected leadership continues to point to, Elected Chief Mark Hill writing in

his letter that the elected council has a unique and transparent system of accountability to the Six Nations membership with open books and regularly scheduled open meetings where the HCCC has struggled to inform Six Nations membership what is being done on their end on behalf of the people and by whom. Secretary Hill says the focus of concern for HCCC is environmental and population focused to protect the integrity of the land. “We’re not against development, we’ve said that all along. But it needs to be done responsibly,” said Hill. He could not offer specifics on what was being done by HDI to ensure environmental concerns are being addressed and overpopulation issues are being taken into consideration when they do concede to a development deal. Hill was also open with reporters about not having details to share about who HDI has agreements with and what the terms of those agreements include.

Radon gas testing will be spread across community By Donna Duric

The Six Nations Environment Task Force is preparing to conduct radon testing across the community to develop mitigation strategies for new and existing dwellings. The pilot study has been in the works since last year. Rod Whitlow and Coun. Michelle Bomberry sought ethics approval from elected council last week to conduct interviews during the radon sampling study to help determine the effects of radon exposure in homes across the reserve. 100 homes in random locations across the territory will be monitored to measure radon levels entering the home. “Exposure to radon gas is the number two cause of lung cancer so the questions will be geared to… determine if anyone in the household had ever been diagnosed with lung cancer,” said Whitlow. The study will determine what housing mitigations might be needed and what

happens with exposure to radon gas over a long period of time. “We’ve heard many health concerns from our community members, many environmental concerns, one being radon,” said Bomberry, the principal investigator. “We actually did some radon testing at businesses back in (2015/2016). From there, we did detect there was one business that had higher levels than normal. A mitigation plan was put in place and that was remedied.” Radon gas is a natural-

ly occurring by-product from uranium breakdown in soils. It’s also found in gypsum rock. “The testing is time and labour intensive,” said Whitlow. "We don’t have any scientific information at this point that there’s a part of the community or reserve that might have higher levels of radon.” Technicians will set up a measuring device in the household at the lowest level of the dwelling, which doesn’t have to be a basement, to measure the levels of radon gas entering the home.

Study to determine supports needed for Indigenous fathers DONNA DURIC


One of the first studies of its kind is looking to determine what supports Indigenous men need in their new roles as fathers. Services for Indigenous fathers are lacking, Six Nations Elected Council heard during a presentation last week from nursing professor Amy Wright from the University of Toronto. In collaboration with the Indigenous Diabetes Health Circle and Hamilton Regional Indian

Centre, local health care workers will develop and undertake the study to design programs that will serve new Indigenous fathers. Wright sought approval from council’s ethics committee to undertake the study that will recruit study participants from Six Nations. Wright said health care workers noticed an absence of support for new Indigenous fathers during an Indigenous mom and baby study in the city of Hamilton. “There’s definitely a significant gap,” she said. The first phase of the

study will involve interviews with Indigenous fathers, two spirit parents and service providers looking to understand their experiences and their strengths and needs and that study will inform developing a parenting program to meet their needs. Phase two will see community engagement and workshops, and the design of the program, and phase three will see the implementation of the pilot program. She said the study will be conducted under the First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Model - a

framework that has 10 components with culture a central component of the wellness continuum model. It’s a holistic approach to wellness that focuses on physical behaviour, spiritual behaviour, mental behaviour and emotional behaviour of Indigenous people, the indigenous way of viewing health. "Our interview guide is really informed by this model to make sure that we’re as holistic as possible,” said Wright. The research questions will include: how do men/ two spirit people expe-

rience their journey to becoming fathers, what needs do fathers have along their journey and what resources do they use or want to meet their needs, and how do two spirit people and men envision a program that will meet their needs as fathers? The study design recognizes that people experience life in different ways according to culture, environment, conflict, finances and other determinants of health, according to the factors around them. They will conduct interviews with 30 fathers and 15 service providers, then

develop the program. Once the program is up and running they would get feedback on it. The study will respect the privacy of participants and the information will be held at the Indigenous Knowledge Centre at Six Nations Polytechnic. Study participants will be compensated for their time. The Six Nations Birthing Centre and Six Nations Health Services are excited for the results, she said. “It will benefit the men in the community to meet a need that has a lack of service,” she said.

I survived the Sixties Scoop. Here's why the Pope's apology isn't an apology at all By Lori Campbell, Associate Vice President (Indigenous Engagement), University of Regina Pope Francis came this week to Maskwasic in central Alberta — where many Indigenous people, including survivors of residential schools and their descendants, had gathered — to deliver an expected apology in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Call to Action No. 58: We call upon the Pope to issue an apology to Survivors, their families, and communities for the Roman Catholic Church's role in the spiritual, cultural, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis children in Catholic-run residential schools. I am the granddaughter of a residential school survivor. I am the daughter of a First Nations woman who survived having each of her seven children stolen and relocated through the Sixties Scoop Assimilation policy. I spent more than 25 years searching for and locating not only my birth mother, but also all of my siblings who were spread across several provinces. I continue to fight to ensure that my nieces, nephews and young relatives know who they are — and that we are here because of the undeniable strength and perseverance of our ancestors. What many Canadians don't understand is that the struggles within Indigenous communities today

are not cultural traits — they are symptoms of a people still struggling from the intergenerational trauma and horrors experienced through the genocidal acts and abuses that took place through the Residential School assimilation policy. Is the papal apology genuine? Did the Pope's apology truly address Call to Action No. 58? The TRC called for the apology to take place on Turtle Island within one year of the release of the 2015 report. It also called for the apology to speak to the role of the Roman Catholic Church. Seven years later, and only due to the consistent persistence of Indigenous Peoples, Pope Francis agreed to apologize. But what did he apologize for? Much like he did when an Indigenous delegation visited Rome earlier this year, Pope Francis apologized for ``the ways in which many members of the church and religious communities co-operated'' in the Residential School system. This was not the Catholic Church taking responsibility for acts of genocide and spiritual, emotional and physical abuses. Apologizing for individuals versus the establishment

that upheld not only the assimilation policy, but also protected — and continues to protect — the people who committed the crimes is horrifying at worst and an insult at best. The Catholic Church not only upheld the government's Residential School system, it used it to further its own religious agenda. It continues to protect Catholic officials who perpe-

Schools began receiving international coverage in 2021, the Catholic Church committed to providing $30 million to support reconciliation projects for survivors. But its fundraising campaign fell short by nearly 90 per cent. The church claims it's still working on a detailed plan. Nonetheless, in 2016 it managed to raise and invest $128 million to ren-

ation Commission report. But the Vatican still hasn't complied. It holds records and requires Indigenous people to travel to Rome to access the documents. There are also suspicions some documents have been destroyed. False absolution causes pain I would not be walking in my truth if I were not to acknowledge how the Church has manipulated some Indigenous people. It appears that the Church feels its only responsibility was to listen to survivors share their stories of horror, and that in itself absolves it of any wrongdoings and releases it from any further accountability. This is still being acted out today in ways that are extremely upsetting for me and many other Indigenous people. We saw it this week as the Pope was gifted sacred items from those who suffered abuses. Sharing of gifts is a cultural norm for Indigenous Peoples. But to share sacred, ceremonial items that are intended to acknowledge people at the highest level for their contributions, wisdom and leadership is not only inappropriate, it's deeply harmful for Indigenous culture and the future of our young people. Neither the Pope nor the Church has earned these gifts.

It suggests that we don't deserve reparations, accountability or reciprocity. Time and time again, Indigenous people who have been displaced through assimilation policies and other colonization tactics tell me they profoundly desire opportunities to learn more about who they are, where they come from and to understand our cultures. I have wiped their tears while they cry when they see Indigenous political leaders give away headdresses, pipes and drums as symbolic, performative gestures to those who continue to harm us. Reconciliation requires people to act To my relatives still struggling as you are finding your way back into the circle, I extend my deepest sympathies for the hurt you endured as you watched this happen again during the Pope's visit. These behaviours must end, full stop. To the broader community of people in Canada, know that reconciliation is not solely the responsibility of the state or an institution. It also falls upon the individual. Reconciliation is how you guide conversations with your family while having dinner. It's how you acknowledge the Pope's apology and how you deepen the discussion to talk about what wasn't said. It's those conversations that will contribute to a future where everyone in Canada can thrive, including Indigenous Peoples.

Here are some simple plant styling tips to point you in the right direction. Use different levels: A lot of good things come tiered. Cake. Concert halls. Even nesting coffee tables get me a little more excited than most people. For good reason; adding plants of different levels and heights can really break up a tight congested corner or fill an awkward gap. Use at least three planters of varying height to create the effect.

Terrariums create their own ecosystem and are not difficult to maintain once established.

Make sure you consider what types of screws and hardware you need to ensure the best hold, but other than that I suggest being creative as you select where you hang a plant from. Maybe choose one room with lots of sunlight and good air circulation. Add some ferns and pops of colour to really make your trailers and crawlers pop.

Living lab will see First Nations and farmers collaborate Project aims is to have living lab in each province



Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau announced the creation of nine new living labs across Canada on July 14, including the first Indigenous-led living lab by the Mistawasis Nêhiyawak and Muskeg Lake Cree Nation in Saskatchewan. As farmers and Canadians face the brunt of the impacts of climate change, these new living labs will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and strengthen the climate resiliency of the nation's

food systems. One of the new living labs announced today is the first Indigenous-led hub by the Mistawasis Nêhiyawak and Muskeg Lake Cree Nation in Saskatchewan, the Bridge to Land Water Sky project. This project will see producers and First Nations work towards a common goal of improving the environment while committing to the protection of Indigenous values, treaties, communities, lands and resources. With an investment of $54 million under the Agricultural Climate Solutions (ACS) – Living Labs program, this first wave of new collaborative

Marie-Claude Bibeau.


projects will take root in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Each living lab will focus on identifying innovative technologies and on-farm management

practices that can be adopted by farmers nationwide to tackle climate change. The solutions developed will also help protect biodiversity on farms, improve water and soil quality, and, through the efficient management of resources, strengthen farmers' bottom lines. "For generations, Canadian farmers and researchers have been finding new ways to protect natural resources while making production practices more efficient,” said Bibeau. “By working together, they are creating innovative research-based solutions that can be applied to real-world challenges on the farm. Our ef-

forts are accelerating the sector's ability to respond to climate change, all while working to ensure global food security." Building on the success of the previous Living Laboratories Initiative introduced in 2018, this next generation of living labs uses the same collaborative approach to agricultural innovation. They bring together farmers, scientists and other stakeholders to co-develop, test and monitor new practices and technologies in a real-life context, breaking down barriers between research and practice on the farm.

The aim is to have at least one living lab in each province, and details on the next set of projects will be announced in the coming months. The nine new living labs announced follow in the footsteps of the original Living Laboratories Initiative, the previous network of living labs introduced in PEI, Manitoba, Quebec and Ontario between 2019 and 2021. These living labs focused on overall environmental issues and have since received international acclaim and served as a model for other countries around the world.

After Pope called residential schools 'genocide,' House of Commons should too: NDP MP CANADIAN PRESS


OTTAWA — A New Democrat member of Parliament said Tuesday she hopes all of her colleagues will recognize the residential schools system as genocide, now that Pope Francis has used the term. Leah Gazan, who represents Winnipeg Centre, tried last year to get unanimous consent from MPs in the House of Commons to press the Canadian government to call what unfolded inside residential schools a genocide. Her motion referred to the United Nations convention on genocide adopted in 1948, which defines genocide as killing members of a group, causing them serious physical or mental harm, placing them under conditions to destroy them, imposing measures to prevent births or forcibly transferring children to another group. Gazan said at the time that Canada's residential schools policy met all five criteria, but some voices in the House of Commons said ``no,'' so her motion requiring unanimous consent failed. ``Having the experience of residential school survivors continually up for debate is another act of violence,'' Gazan, a member of Wood Mountain Lakota Nation,said in an interview Tuesday. ``We need to be mindful of that.'' The 2015 final report from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission

of Canada labelled what happened inside residential schools a ``cultural genocide,'' but some Indigenous leaders have since said it needs to be called a genocide, without the qualifying adjective. During his six-day visit to Canada last week, Pope Francis apologized multiple times for the ``evil'' of what happened inside residential schools. But it was not until the Pope was asked about it by reporters on the flight back to Rome that he said he considered it to be a genocide. Francis said he felt ``genocide'' was a technical term, when asked why he did not say it in Canada. In a statement Tuesday, Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Marc Miller's office said it was encouraged ``that Pope Francis' thoughts evolved over the course of his trip.'' ``He heard poignant, painful and direct testimony from survivors and their family members as they courageously shared their truth,'' it said. More than 150,000 First Nations, Metis and Inuit children were forced to attend these institutions, which the federal government funded and different churches operated for over a century. The Catholic Church ran the majority of the residential schools in Canada. Thousands of Indigenous adults who were sent there as children have reported rampant physical, sexual and emotional abuse, along with neglect and malnutrition. The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation maintains a memorial

register for students who died at residential schools and that number is now at 4,120 children. Gazan presented her motion in June 2021, not long after the Tk'emlups te Secwepemc Nation announced that ground-penetrating radar had located what appeared to be the remains of about 200 children buried on the site of a former residential school in Kamloops, B.C. She said she is now planning to present another motion, but is still thinking about what it should say while the House of Commons is on its summer break. ``I hope that, you know, particularly members of Parliament who are really committed to reconciliation, committed to justice, will finally recognize what happened in residential schools for exactly what it was, which was a genocide. ``It's time for Parliament to acknowledge it as a genocide.'' The Native Women's Association of Canada said there is much left to do following the papal tour and apology. ``That starts with the government recognizing that what happened to Indigenous children in this country's Indian Residential Schools was a genocide,'' its CEO, Lynne Groulx, said in a statement, adding it was unfortunate Gazan's motion failed. Upon the discovery of unmarked graves last year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he continues to accept the conclusion from the 2019 inquiry into missing and murdered

“Over the course of the project investment review, the Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council (SN Elected Council), Six Nations of the Grand River Economic Development Corporation Group (SNGRDC Group), staff and the community invested considerable efforts in assessing the fit of this project for the Six Nations community. We are disappointed the Six Nations community will not realize the economic benefits from this project.”

The proposed Lake Erie Connector Project was an underwater 110-km long power cable between Canada and the United States and would have seen a $33 million dollar investment deal for Six Nations which SNGRDC previously said would bring $118,000 a year as part of a community benefit agreement. ITC said in April they had the required permits for the project and that it would go forward with or without Six Nations involvement.

SIX NATIONS — The development company that was driving the Lake Erie Connector Project has suspended all project development actives and commercial negotiations. In a statement to the community on August 2, Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation said they received notice on July 27 that ITC Investment Holdings Inc. would not be going forward.

Indigenous women and girls that ``what happened amounts to genocide.'' Jamie Schmale, Conservative Shadow Minister for Indigenous Services, said in a statement that the Pope's visit wasn't about politicians or politics, but was about healing and reconciliation. ``It was important for Pope Francis to acknowledge and take responsibility for the Church's actions, including recognizing that removing children from the influence of their homes, families, and traditions, in an effort to erase their culture amounted to a genocide,'' Schmale said, noting that Conservatives would continue to support healing and reconciliation. ``Reconciliation, healing

and forgiveness is personal and different for each person. It is important that we allow First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people to respond to the visit in their own way, and in their own time.'' Some of those running for the Conservative party's leadership also responded when asked whether they see the residential school system as genocide. ``Residential schools were a monstrous attack on Indigenous people and an odious intrusion of the state and the church into the lives of innocent people,'' leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre said in a statement. He pointed to the fact that both the inquiry into missing and murdered

Indigenous women and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada used the terms ``genocide'' and ``cultural genocide.'' ``I accept and agree with these findings.'' A spokeswoman for fellow candidate Jean Charest said he agreed with the finding that residential schools amounted to a ``cultural genocide.'' Rural Ontario MP and leadership contestant Scott Aitchison said Pope Francis' recognition of the system as a genocide ``is an important step in reconciliation.'' Leslyn Lewis' campaign declined to provide comment and Roman Baber did not respond.

Indigenous leaders discuss Pope's acknowledgment of genocide CANADIAN PRESS


A member of the National Indian Residential School Circle of Survivors says it's good Pope Francis acknowledged that what happened in the schools amounted to genocide, but that he should have said it before he left Canada. Ken Young, who is the former Manitoba regional chief of the Assembly of First Nations, says he believes the Pope failed to make the acknowledgment during his Canadian visit last week because Canadian Catholic officials failed to brief him properly. Francis apologized multiple times throughout the week for abuses of Catholic-run residential schools, but didn't use the word ``genocide'' until he was asked by reporters on his plane back to Rome if he accepted that members of the church participated in genocide.

Francis said the reason he did not say that on his apology visit was because he felt ``genocide'' was a technical term. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission referred to residential schools as a form of cultural genocide when it released its final report in 2015, and since then, a number of Indigenous groups have amended this to say it was genocide. Young says he believes Francis, when at the end of the Canadian visit, was free to express his own point of view. ``It's good that he said it ... but he should have said it when he was talking to people here in Canada, and in particular the First Nation survivors of Indian residential schools, and of course the Metis and Inuit,'' Young said in a phone interview Monday in Winnipeg. ``I understood what he meant and why he said it. A lot of people would be surprised because a lot of people don't appreciate

and understand what genocide means within the meaning of the UN convention.'' Kenneth Deer, a member of the Mohawk Nation of Kahnawake, near Montreal, and a member of the Haudenosaunee External Relations Committee, said he felt the statement from the Pope aboard the papal

plane was likely an accurate indication of what he feels. ``I thought his statement was amazing, I'm glad he said it. I wish he'd said it while he was in Canada instead of over the ocean,'' Deer said. ``I think what you heard from the Pope at that time is what he really feels

because he was talking off the cuff; all the other statements were prepared statements.'' Last year, after the Tk'emlups te Secwepemc First Nation in British Columbia said ground-penetrating radar detected what are believed to be the remains of 215 Indigenous children at a former residential school in Kamloops, Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) law professor Pamela Palmater said the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide applies to Canada's actions. She said the convention states that a genocide is committed when members of a group are killed, subjected to serious physical or mental harm, put in conditions to destroy them, become victims to measures intended to prevent births or have their children forcibly transferred to another group. Guelph University pro-

fessor David MacDonald said at the time that the forcible transfer of children, which is part of the UN convention, occurred in the system of residential schools in Canada. Deer said the Pope's acknowledgment is important given many people were arguing against the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that the residential schools were a cultural genocide. ``But now we have the Pope, the head of the Catholic Church, saying yes it's a genocide, so that's why it's very important,'' Deer said. Young, meanwhile, said he doesn't think there's a difference between ``genocide'' and ``cultural genocide.'' ``It's either genocide or it's no genocide,'' Young said. ``That's the way I see it. It's kind of black or white, I guess, but that's my view.''

A glimpse of the U21 Team Haudenosaunee ribbon shirts STAFF REPORT


ONEIDA, WISCONSIN — After an initial group was unable to provide ribbon shirts for the U21 mens lacrosse team headed to the World Lacrosse Games in Ireland, Terrellyn Fearn, a relative of one of the Team Haudenosaunee players, took to Facebook to post the solution on July 31. “I reached out to Wanda Anton who had made Aidans shirts in the past. I wasn’t hopeful as it was a monumental task—2 weeks to make 30 shirts,” she wrote. “Wanda is a life long regalia maker and teaching and engaging young people in the creative process is the heart of her sharing. Wanda reached out to Peril Huff and I had a zoom with both of these Amazing Matriarchal women. They approached

their youth group and 2 young Oneida men, lacrosse playing brothers, who stepped forward. [The dup] diligently went to work through evenings and weekends to put good energy into the ribbon shirts the team will wear

on the world stage in Ireland next week.” Fearn explained that the product of the hard work of unit came through: “I spoke with them all yesterday as they called me to say they have

completed the shirts. With tears in my eyes, I tried to express the deep gratitude we have for them, they are beautiful humans. Ceremonial regalia is critical to our way of life and I know they understand the importance of their gen-

erosity and selflessness in what they have accomplished for this team. This is the medicine the game imbues and what we can accomplish when we come together and centre young people by selflessly putting our minds

and hearts together,” she wrote. The World Games will take place between August 10 - 20 at the University of Limerick, with a record 23 teams set to compete in the largest-ever age group. The 26-man roster includes: Rowisonkies Barnes, Stone Jacobs, Efrain Barreto Jr., Daylin John-Hill, Triton Benedict, Dylan Lyons, Jarmani Benton, Koleton Marquis, Caleb Commandant, Jacob Piseno, Vernon Cooke, Clay Scanlan, Cobie Cree, Keelan Seneca, Trey Deere, Dylan Snow, Gregory Elijah-Brown, Xavier Taylor, Aidan Fearn, Dalton Thomas, Julian Freeman, Mason Homer, James Gowland, and Amos Whitcomb. On August 10, Team Haudenosaunee will take on Team London at 1:00 p.m.. after the USA and Canada face off.

Solidarity shown to MCFN by OUTniagara with withdrawal support from Canada Summer Games STAFF REPORT


On July 31, OUTniagara announced its withdrawal of support from the Canada Summer Games in solidarity with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN). This move comes after the MCFN’s withdrawal in the early weeks of July. Three days after the Niagara 2022 Host Society named the presenting sponsors of Indigenous programming for the Games, the MCFN withdrew all affiliation with and support for the competition set to take place across Niagara this month. The organizers of the Games created an Indigenous Partnership Council with members of Niagara's Indigenous communities, including the MCFN, to offer advice on all Indigenous matters re-lated to the Games. This year is also the first time in 37 years lacrosse, a Haudenosaunee

sport, will be included in the event. But Games organizers hired a consultant to create a memorandum of understanding instead of communicating directly with First Nations communities. Later, in the statement posted to the MCFN website on July 11, the nation was unable to “see a clear path forward with regards to the Canada Summer Games.”

“MCFN have, over the course of many years, acquired a mutually respectful relationship with the federal government based upon our Treaty Relationship. We have had many challenges and we have managed to move ahead,” reads the statement. “In this time of reconciliation, we did not agree with the signing of an MOU [memorandum of un-der-

standing] with a consultant to coordinate the Indigenous programming of the Games, as we believe signing an agreement with First Nations communities directly would have been more meaningful and respectful.” The statement closes with a paragraph citing experience of “disrespect,” and “lateral violence,” which extended beyond


MCFN staff to attending youth that were invited to participate, and best wishes to the athletes competing in the Games. It was later noted that the Canada Summer Games offered to fix concerns brought forward by the MCFN, but the impact had already been made and no offers to reconcile have been accept-ed. As for the OUTniagara’s

withdrawal in support of the MCFN, co-chairs of the organization stressed that the decision to withdraw support from the Canada Summer Games is OUTniaga-ra’s alone, no expectation that other Niagara 2SLGBTQQIA+ organizations step back from the Games stands. It was noted in a statement on the OUTniagara’s website, that the organizations mission is to support and advocate for organization partners, particularly people who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour, and that one of OUTniagara’s major tenets is to stand in solidarity with others who are still subjugated to injustice at the hands of colonial systems. The organization holds the responsibility of calling out such offences and act accordingly to continue to uphold our values as an organization. The Canada Summer Games begin Saturday, Aug. 6, and end Sunday, Aug. 21 in the Niagara region.

CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, with a clear mind and excellent communication skills, this week you can lead the meeting and get the results you desire. This is only one step on the path to success. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, some type of force is helping you continue your path forward. It may be pride; it may be a desire to move past your current situation. Whatever it is, keep up the momentum.

VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, though it goes against your nature, feel free to be lazy once in a while this week. Share your responsibilities with someone else and you will benefit from the rest.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, this week you are able to convey what is going on inside your mind. Don’t hold anything back, even if it makes you are hesitant to do so. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, people will be eager to hang on to your every word this week. Think carefully about what you have to say to further your cause to the fullest.

SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, if you find that your mind is muddled and communication is not coming easily to you, take a break and enjoy some alone time. Engage in solo projects.

CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, words may not be the best way to express what you are feeling right now to a partner. Actions will speak louder than words. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Things could get intense for you this week, Aquarius. A lot of information is headed your way. A roadblock is in your path, but don’t let this trip you up.

PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, are you prepared for the spotlight to be turned on you at work? Brush up on your skills and what you have to say to superiors. Container Sales and Modifications Service Since 2007
