MCFN marks Orange Shirt Day with healing dance DONNA DURIC


The sound of happy little voices carried throughout the air while community members at Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation marked the second annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Sept. 30. Their carefree happiness and laughter could be heard throughout the grounds as the children frolicked on bouncy castles and adults enjoyed a feast, in stark contrast to the childhood of residential school survivors just a few generations ago. To continue the healing from the church and government-run schools that aimed to wipe out Indigenous culture and identity, MCFN held a healing jingle dress dance at the community powwow grounds before holding a moment

of silence for residential school survivors. Traditional knowledge keeper Val King explained the significance of the jingle dress, the corresponding dance and how it helps people heal from trauma. “The dress makes that swishing sound (and) as

they dance around, it’s like a vacuum cleaner,” said King. “It pulls off the sickness off people, your mind, your body, your spirit, and your emotion. And when the dance is finished they have to go clean themselves off with medicines and they have to

clean their cones off with medicines, so that they don’t get sick.” A jingle dress is a type of traditional regalia covered with cones, usually 365 to be precise, that makes a jingle sound as the cones touch each other while the

wearer is dancing. King noted that although residential schools closed in the 90s, the effects are still felt today by generations of survivors and their descendants. “No one’s exempt here from intergenerational

trauma from residential schools even if your family members didn’t attend,” she said. “It still affects our communities all across Canada.” Some of the social ills that still plague Indigenous communities across the country include disproportionately high rates of imprisonment, child welfare involvement, addictions, and other socio-economic indicators of intergenerational trauma. The healing continued at MCFN, with guests at last week’s event, also known as Orange Shirt Day, put down tobacco for residential school survivors.

Bay of Quinte settles partial land claim STAFF REPORT


TYENDINAGA MOHAWK TERRITORY — The Mohawks of Tyendinaga announced the conclusion of a partial settlement agreement regarding the Culbertson Tract Specific Claim. The specific claim arises from the unlawful 1837 alienation of 923.4 acres of unsurrendered land, known as the Culbertson Tract, which breached the Simcoe Deed, which the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte recognize as a treaty. Canada and the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte have reached a full and final settlement of a 299.43-acre portion of the Culbertson Tract Specific Claim. Through an arrangement with the fee simple owner on a willing buyer/willing seller basis, this land will be confirmed as reserve land. Federal officials say the partial settlement agreement is without prejudice

to the balance of the Culbertson Tract Specific Claim. "This is a significant day for our community and in our history. Our original Mohawk Tract has been greatly reduced by surrenders and other alienations, many of which are suspicious and, in this case, simply illegal. With the signing of the Culbertson Tract Partial Settlement Agreement, we have demonstrated that it is possible to reverse this trend and to reaffirm administration and control of our land illegally taken from us. We look forward to continuing the work on having the remaining 623.4 acres of the Culbertson Tract restored to the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte,” said Chief R. Donald Maracle. In 1793, the Mohawk Tract was granted to the ancestors of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte by the Simcoe Deed, which the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte assert to be a treaty. In recompense for the losses sustained by the Mohawks as a result of their ongoing loyalty to

the British Crown during the American War of Independence. A particular procedure was specified for surrenders and sales of any of that tract. Since 1793 the original Mohawk Tract has been reduced to less than onethird of its original size. In 1995, the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte submitted a specific claim alleging that the Crown, not having obtained a surrender for the Culbertson Tract, breached its fiduciary and treaty duties to the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte by illegally transferring the Culbertson Tract in 1837 (the "Culbertson Tract Specific Claim”). In November 2003, Canada accepted the Culbertson Tract Specific Claim for negotiation under its Specific Claims Policy, though negotiations were paused in 2007 due to incompatible positions. In 2017, the parties resumed negotiations to settle a portion of the Culbertson Tract Specific Claim consisting of 299.43 acres without prejudice to nego-

tiating a settlement for the balance of the Culbertson Tract Specific Claim. The membership approved the partial settlement agreement in a ratification vote certified on November 4, 2021, and no appeals on the ratification vote were received. Pursuant to a separate agreement with the fee simple owner of the 299.43 acres, that land will be acquired by BMO acting as trustee, and in due course it will be confirmed as reserve land, subject to the completion of environmental remediation. The settlement will provide the First Nation with compensation totaling $30,974,864 and includes a route for the confirmation of approximately one third of the Culbertson Tract as reserve land. The Council will consult the community on the disposition of the settlement funds and the future use of the partial settlement land. Negotiations on the balance of the Culbertson Tract Specific Claim will continue.

Santa Claus parade needs funding DONNA DURIC


“Let us give thanks to the creator for all that he gives. The harvest moon has shined its brilliance over our home and now as we store the harvest of our work the creator gives his sustenance. The Earth will now rest throught the coming seasons storing the energy needed to once again feed our people”. Michael Markley

This message brought to you by Six Nations Police Service

Six Nations Elected Council will be funding the Six Nations Santa Claus parade this year, as the beloved annual event became yet another casualty of the lack of gaming funds coming into community coffers this year due to the pandemic. Council’s finance committee agreed to fund the parade’s expenses, to the tune of about $6,500, which will go towards advertising, floats, purchasing candy, hiring Santa, and new signage. Six Nations Elected Council has been bombarded with individual funding requests this year after losing out on millions of dollars in annual proceeds from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) Corporation. Because the Covid pandemic shut down many gaming establishments, namely casinos, the OFNLP, which was formed to disperse OLG revenues to Indigenous communities in Ontario, was not able to

provide the annual funding this year. The gaming funds have also traditionally been used by council to offset departmental deficits. This year’s parade, which takes place on Nov. 19, will feature Santa looking spiffy in a brand-new suit, which elicited a laugh from Elected Chief Mark Hill, who said the previous year’s Santas were looking “a little sad.”

More laughter ensued after Chief Hill suggested council put a float in the parade, when Coun. Helen Miller quipped that might not be a good idea, saying community members, “will throw eggs at us.” The parade starts at Ohsweken Speedway at 10 a.m. and heads down Chiefswood Road toward the community hall. Roads will be closed for the duration of the parade.

Indigenous film festival back Festival will feature nearly 150 works from 16 countries STAFF REPORT


The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival will be running again in Toronto, with a slate of in-person events set for Oct. 18 to 23, followed by online festival selections from Oct. 24 to 30. The opening night gala, taking place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, will centre around “Stellar” by Darlene Naponse, an Anishinaabe director. “The imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival is the world’s largest Indigenous festival showcasing film, video, audio, and digital and interactive media made by Indigenous screen content creators,” reads the press release announcing the event. “The festival presents compelling and distinctive works from Canada and around the globe, reflecting the diversity of Indigenous nations and illustrating the vitality and dynamism of Indige-

nous arts, perspectives, and cultures in contemporary media.” The film is a self-reflective piece on the connections that people form between themselves, others and the planet as a whole. Explored through the lens of a catastrophic meteor crash on earth that traps two lovers in a small northern Ontario bar. Throughout the festival, more than 147 works from 16 countries in more than 55 Indigenous languages will be presented, including 19 feature films, 13 shorts, nine digital and interactive works, and a mix of audio, music, exhibitions and other art. The in-person event on Oct. 23 will draw to a close with a showing of “Rosie” by Gail Maurice (Cree/ Métis). It is a film about an orphaned Indigenous youth who moves in with her street-smart aunt, against the backdrop of the fringe of 1980s Montréal. Festival organisers suggest keeping an eye out for the other feature films, like

“Powerful Chief” by Henry Vallejo (Aymara), which follows Elisban as he arrives and survives in a city homeless and broke; “The Drover’s Wife The Legend of Molly Johnson” by Leah Purcell (Goa-Gungarri-Wakka Wakka Murri) in which a mother is pushed to the limit of what she’ll do to protect her loved ones; and “We Are Still Here,” a film by eight different Aotearoa directors in which eight tales are interwoven to create a story of hope and survival. For documentaries, look to the true crime doc “Bring Her Home” by Leya Hale (Dakota/Diné); a film about the intergenerational impact of being a state ward called “A Boy Called Piano — The Story of Fa’amoana John Luafutu” by Nina Nawalowalo (Fijian); and a documentary titled, “Kaatohkitopii: The Horse He Never Rode” from Trevor Solway (Blackfoot). Festival tickets are available on the imagineNATIVE website’s box office.

Six Nations based HCCC/HDI are not the government of the Haudenosaunee Across Ontario, Quebec and the United States there are a total of 15 communities occupied by the Mohawk, Oneida, Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga and Tuscarora people — aka the Haudenosaunee. In September, the federal government released new band membership data. The following totals include the people from 20 different Indian bands, representing seven reserves in Ontario and Quebec: Six Nations of the Grand River - 28,279; Mohawks of Akwesasne - 13,205; Oneida Nation of the Thames - 6418; Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory - 10,700; Wahta Mohawk Territory - 895; Mohawks of Kahnawake - 11,504 and Mohawks of Kanesatake - 2,867. A total of 73,868 people north of the US border are registered as members of a Haudenosaunee-identifying band. On the states side there are nine bands identified representing the Haudenosaunee people of nine different reservations. The tribal enrolment data is not as up to date for those communities but the most recent numbers show the following enrolments. In New York State the communities and their tribal membership are as follows: Allegany - 1020; Cattaraugus - 693; Oneida - 1000; Onondaga - 2244; St. Regis - 3314; Tonawanda - 700, Cayuga Nation 450 and Tuscarora - 1,152. In Wisconsin there is one reservation, home to the Oneida Tribe of the Indians of Wisconsin totalling 21,321 Haudenosaunee people. Oklahoma also has one reservation, home of the Seneca-Cayuga Nation of Oklahoma with a tribal membership of 5,059.

In the United States there are 43,790 enrolled tribal members of Haudenosaunee-identifying communities. Altogether, the current number of Haudenosaunee-enrolled humans in Ontario, Quebec and the United States tallies up to 117,558. Now of course there are discrepancies to that total: there are duplicates, registered in both the US tribal communities and on the band lists in Canada. There are also non-registered Haudenosaunee people who have no affiliation with any reserve or band. However, the majority of Haudenosaunee-identifying people are included in those populations listed. Last month, the Haudenosaunee people were informed that the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council and the Haudenosaunee Development Institute, are seeking to step in as an intervener in the Six Nations land claim proceedings — claiming that it is the government of the Haudenosaunee of Ontario, Quebec and the United States. At first, it seemed like the battle lines were being drawn in the sand. A collective groan of “here we go again” seemed to echo across the grassroots community here at Six Nations in the ever spinning saga of hereditary vs elected leaders. Some people were outraged, some irritated, others were fed-up and some felt concern that perhaps its time for the grassroots people to stand up again and remind the hereditary leaders what their responsibilities are. The Haudenosaunee people are not represented by the HCCC. Nor are they represented by

the HDI. Nor are they represented by the pair’s provincial incorporation 2438543 Ontario Inc. For those who don’t know, that numbered company is the HCCC. They say it isn’t, but on their incorporation documents that numbered Ontario company has been tasked with overseeing HCCC’s “8 points of jurisdiction” and the corporation was divided into 50 Haudenosaunee hereditary titles. You can Google it. The current collective calling themselves the confederacy council here at Six Nations are not the age-old Confederacy they claim to be — but rather a provincially incorporated copycat image of our traditional governance model the Haudenosaunee were used to when we used to be a functioning Confederacy in the US, prior to our flee north. Within the Haudenosaunee communities, this is known as fact. For a while it seemed like this latest move was another step hereditary leaders were consenting HDI to take, over and above the people, to subjugate everyone beneath the word of the HCCC. But if you look at the population numbers in the Haudenosaunee world — and consider the diverse cultural and geographic representation that the 15 Haudenosaunee communities HDI is claiming they and the HCCC represent — it’s clear this is another preposterous falsification of their authority over the Haudenosaunee people and the lands we all, collectively, hold ancestral connections to. They have gotten so bold in their fraudulent representation of Six Nations that they even held a press conference about

their mission and told us all what they were doing. No one is allowed to build anything on territory HDI claims belongs to the HCCC, unless they pay HDI. Those who don’t participate in this system are threatened with protests from people, many of whom aren’t even Six Nations residents or Haudenosaunee people at all, people who don’t actually represent the feelings of the Six Nations people, but rather are in some kind of relationship with HDI, supporting them. The claim, by at least one of the HCCC’s reps, Jock Hill, is that this is all about the environment. “We have environmental concerns, that is why we are doing this,” he told a group of reporters earlier this summer. And yet, when the City of Hamilton was behind the gun to clean up actual human waste from waterways that fall under the territory that HDI claims is under HCCC’s jurisdiction — HDI went into full PR mode. Sending “protesters” to go and stop the work along the creek, notifying newspaper reporters they were on the move, and sending their legal adviser/director Aaron Detlor around to Hamilton’s radio stations to “warn residents” that there “may be disruptions to travel” in the city because Hamilton wouldn’t work with HDI. In truth the city of Hamilton would later respond by saying they tried to work with HDI but were unable to deliver on HDI’s demand — seeking the city make a change to provincial law. The result of this and other PR stunts the HDI has pulled has been a constant embarrassment for the people of Six Nations.

In this latest situation in particular. Why would anyone want to delay and threaten the cleaning up of human waste from a waterway? Least of all actual land defenders and water protectors? It is bad governance and making a mockery of all the work land defenders and water protectors are doing here at Six Nations and on other front lines. Yet, Aaron Detlor appears — HDI’s legal adviser/president/lawyer for/director/cheque-signer — standing alongside the water in Hamilton, directing workers to stop cleaning the water. What about those, ‘we-have-environmental-concerns’ statements made by the chiefs earlier this year? The people of Six Nations know the game HDI has been playing. And that is part of the reason the hereditary chiefs and the HCCC don’t have the community support they should have, the support they claim to people off the territory, that they do have. HDI has been really good in the past at muddying the waters in the public eye, playing the media and non-indigenous populations for creating an optics nightmare. The narrative is this: those who don’t pay HDI to participate face threats of protests. We can confirm our direct experience that within the community, local media who don’t sing the HDI’s praises get totally stonewalled. Residents on the territory who don’t support the HCCC/HDI mission are bullied, labelled as treasonous outliers, in support of colonization and otherwise made to

feel they are social pariah’s and uninvited to traditional ceremonies. The HCCC having gone so far as to write letters and make public notification that certain individuals within the community, who publicly criticized HDI, are no longer a part of the Haudenosaunee world. They have ex-communicated (aka dehorned) chiefs who disagree with HDIs methods and ostracized entire families from accessing ceremonies as a form of social punishment for daring to speak out in disagreement with their choices. At the same time: non-indigenous people looking for some kind of authentic indigenous experience or clout for their own campaigns (read: municipal councillors from Hamilton or Guelph, who to be fair may not know any better) are brought in and given access to the HDI/HCCC — receiving praise or honour for being an “ally” — while at the same time silently securing the “othering” HDI/ HCCC has engaged on those who don’t support their political or religious ideals. It is the very definition of colonial violence, under the disguise of decolonization. The HCCCs corporation has been compensated millions in development dollars and none of those dollars have been publicly accounted for. Ever. There is no public listing of who has signed what deals. And when details of agreements have been revealed, as was done by TRT reporting, they go even deeper into secrecy and word has it, have been insisting proponents sign

NDA’s. Not to mention the lands and properties the HDI has purchased with those dollars, for who knows what purpose. Details surrounding those actions haven’t been disclosed to the community. How can you claim to be an arm of the government and have no public accountability measures in place? The situation is so bad that the elected council

has been openly sharing in their live-streamed council meetings when they’ve asked HCCC and HDI to financially contribute to projects. To date, no contributions have been invested into Six Nations for infrastructure from those millions that have been collected by HDI. Here’s the thing: everyone knows what’s up. But the PR game is so strong, and non-native people and communities are the ones being targeted and they’re so scared of being framed

by protesters and media as opposing indigenous land rights or something that no one is doing anything effective to stop what HDI is doing. Folks have tried, but it requires Six Nations people themselves, or Six Nations elected government to stand up and call a spade, a spade. And so far, the looming PR disasters for non-indigenous communities aren’t worth the fight to oppose HDI — and neither has the cost of “othering” been from within the community.

It is again, colonial violence, under the disguise of decolonization. And soon, HDI is going to walk into a federal courtroom and test out their rhetoric at convincing a judge that they are acting on behalf of the whole Haudenosaunee world. Not just Six Nations. It’s going to be interesting. What will ten years of failed lawsuits and PR stunts turn out in a federal courtroom? If they represent all the Haudenosaunee across our com-


munities — why didn’t they seek to intervene in the Wahta’s settlement or in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory? The communities states-side have their own governance struggles going on. What will they say to being informed they are under the jurisdiction of the HCCC/HDI — a collective of people hundreds of miles away from their territories where they have no representation at all? HCCC and HDI have grossly underestimated

how much the Haudenosaunee people value their autonomy. It’s one thing when an organization puts up a front and a non-indigenous developer falls for the con. But it is another situation entirely to declare HDI/HCCC lord over and above the rest of the Haudenosaunee people on earth. And any federal court that would consent to HDI declaring this kind of lordship over the people of Six Nations would be committing a miscarriage of justice.

Brantford school re-named Edith Monture Elementary currently serves 800 students with approximately 70 staff members. Monture was born in Ohsweken on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve in 1890. She was the first Indigenous woman to be a registered nurse in Canada. Monture volunteered with the United States Army Nurse Corps during First World War. Because she was a wartime nurse, Monture



The school was originally named after a person who tried to erase Indigenous identity. Now, it’s named after the first Indigenous woman to become a nurse - Six Nations’ very own Edith Monture. The name change became official last week, when Ryerson Heights Elementary School in Brantford took the name of Edith Monture Elementary School, as the country slowly says good-bye to an era of naming public institutions after colonial historical figures. Egerton Ryerson is known as one of the original architects of residential schools, which aimed to assimilate Indigenous people into the colonial cultural fabric and landscape of the newly-formed country of Canada, with far-reaching and devastating impacts that continue to impact the socio-economic well-being of Indigenous people across

Monture was an Ohsweken-born World War I veteran who was the first Indigenous woman in the country to become a registered nurse, and the first Indigenous woman and registered band member to gain the right to vote in Canada. “The renaming of Ryerson Heights is an important step on our ongoing journey of reconciliation,”

says Susan Gibson, Grand Erie District School Board Chair and member of the Renaming Committee. “The process was a learning opportunity to help us all critically examine the past, and work towards a better way forward.” Grand Erie launched the renaming process for Ryerson Heights last fall and, in accordance with board policy, included a 60-day period for community input, reaching across the district for ideas. A total of 250 name suggestions were submitted,

each accompanied by a rationale. The Renaming Committee, including staff and community members, shortlisted the public submissions to 11 selections. Students at the school then had a chance to research the shortlisted suggestions, and their work became part of the committee’s deliberations.

Little NHL expected to make its return 2023 STAFF REPORT


For half a century, the Little Native Hockey League (Little NHL) stands as a symbol of celebration for Indigenous unity through sport. After a pandemic-induced hiatus, it’s set for a long-awaited return. More than 200 teams representing First Nations throughout Ontario will again get a chance to come together, to celebrate, to revel in a collective love of hockey. In tracing the history of the Little NHL back to its roots, there are both gems and hardships that decorate its path. The tournament began on Manitoulin Island on the inaugural year in 1971. Unknown to some, the tournament was created in response to racism that was being experienced by players in the surrounding area. Some players were told they were not qualified to

play in triple-A teams in nearby cities or double-A teams that were close by. First Nations players could be eligible to play in tournaments, but could end up either not being able to participate or, if they were, they were sat

on the bench. A group of five community leaders came together to create the new tournament in response, to make sure that a tournament opened its doors and granted First Nations youth the chance to play

hard enough and make sacrifices that you can do anything,” reads the ALL West Women’s Division website. “We choose to use animals from the story as our team names as each animal holds meaning on its own. The six animals and team names are Bear, Deer, Turtle, Hawk, Bat and Flying Squirrel.” The Bear is cited as representing courage. The design choose colours from the three bears we have in British Columbia and integrate them into the design. Using black to represent the black bear, brown to represent grizzlies and white to represent the Spirit Bear. Deer is cited as representing tenderness tempered with strength and the design choose colours from the black tailed deer found throughout B.C. Turtles represent truth

and wisdom and the design incorporates colours from native turtles to B.C., like the painted turtle. Hawks are said to represent determination, and focus and the design took colours from the Northern Goshawk that resides all over B.C., who are hard to view as they prefer to live away from civilization. Bats represent transition, and the start of a new beginning with the colour of the Silver- haired Bat native to BC. The Flying Squirrel represents keeping focus on one's dreams and goals, the design takes from the Northern Flying Squirrel that is native to B.C. Each animal is represented by the jersey colours, and a silhouette on the uniform shorts; the sil-houette is to represent the animal as we continue to grow as a league we can begin to explore other lo-

for their communities, to showcase the talent that was hidden away. In other words, the Little NHL experience has always been about more than just hockey. The vision extends far beyond a means of determining


which community boasted the most skill, and into celebrating one another. It was that vision that the tournament’s founders established what they called the Little NHL’s ‘four pillars’ during that inaugural tournament: citizenship,

respect, education and sportsmanship. Fast-forward half a century, and that seed blossomed into something beautiful still, and far-reaching. The first 17 teams doubled, then tripled, and the squads from the Manitoulin area soon joined by Moose Factory, then others from southern Ontario that made the trek north. Fifty teams turned to 100, and then 200, soon 250. Now, the tournament’s a yearly staple, one that has been missed throughout the pandemic, with a circle on calendars months in advance. With many players having aged out and some aged in, 2023 will be a year the beloved experience is welcomed back by communities. Ontario Law Society named Wiikwemkoong’s Marian Jacko its distinguished female lawyer back in June of 2022, who also serves as the president of the Little NHL.

USA Lacrosse volunteer Andrew Lee began a two-year term as chair of the organization’s Board of Directors back in August and has taken on the role well. In addition to serving in board roles for other nonprofits and businesses over the past two decades, Lee, who is half Seneca, has a special connection to lacrosse and its heritage. Lee wants to ensure that the traditional Native elements of the sport are not lost as the sport continues to expand, including inclusivity, creativity, respect, and enjoyment. One of the ways he’ll accomplish his goals is by leaning on his experience as an executive at institutions such as Harvard, Aetna, and now Management Leadership for Tomorrow. Lee is familiar with working with and leading boards, serving as a chair, director or advisor on a wide array of boards for organizations such as the Smithsonian Institution, the Tewaaraton Foundation, Harvard University, the Chickasaw Nation, the National Congress of American Indians, and 4 The Future Foundation, among others.

Well Living House: Supporting Indigenous Health For Generations to Come A healthy world begins with healthy communities. In Canada and across the globe, Indigenous children experience an unequal burden of health and social challenge. For hundreds of years, colonial policies have undermined Indigenous families and their health and wellbeing. Currently, there are gaps in the adequacy and safety of services focused on the health of Indigenous families. The Well Living House (WLH), an action research centre focused on Indigenous infant, child, and family health, aims to change that by nurturing places and spaces where Indigenous Peoples can gather and share knowledge and resources about happy and healthy community living. Born of a partnership between Indigenous health researchers and Indigenous community partners, WLH is led by Métis physician and scientist, Dr. Janet Smylie. The organization brings together Indigenous scientists, health workers, Elders, community leaders, and trainees, creating a human network committed to advancing the health of Indigenous Peoples.

Their research is designed to be of tangible and practical benefit to Indigenous community partners— for example, design and evaluation of models of Indigenous midwifery and COVID-19 response. Key to the success of Well Living House is a dedicated committee of guiding Elders, called the Counsel of Grandparents—the word choice is deliberate, symbolizing the value of what the Grandparents do and underlining their commitment to action. The following six grandparents, along with Dr. Smylie and their incredible team, have been instrumental in the success of Well Living House. Maria Campbell, Cree-Métis
