Haudenosaunee People Block Caledonia Road Over 'Lies' From Ontario Government
"...They are dissatisfied with actions taken by the province of Ontario to turn over a contentious piece of land, the former Burtch Correctional Facility land, to the Six Nations band council rather than the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the traditional government, said Six Nations woman Doreen Silversmith.
'Ontario's actions bring much dishonour to the Crown and it's in violation of the Two Row Wampum, the Silver Covenant Chain and the William Claus Wampum.'
Silversmith listed the group's demands:
- Ontario and Canada return to the negotiating table with our confederacy.
- Ontario lives by their words of May, 17, 2006 and returns the Burtch Lands under the Haldimand Proclamation of 1784
- Six Nations Band Council withdraws their injunction against Kris Hill and the people of Six Nations.
"We'll be here as long as it takes,' Silversmith said."
