HSN: Talks continue Feb 25
Talks Update, January 28, 2009
Representatives of the Haudenosaunee Six Nations (HSN), Government of Canada, and the Government of Ontario entered the first round of discussions January 28th at the Oneida Business Park. The Wednesday afternoon meeting opened with a preliminary consultation to discuss Canada’s December 12, 2007 $26 million dollar offer to settle historical grievances on the Welland Canal Claim. Haudenosaunee Six Nations principal negotiator Chief Allen MacNaughton responded to the proposed offer by reading the August 29, 2008 counter proposal letter to Canada’s 26 million dollar offer. Canada’s principal negotiator Ronald Doering responded to the Haudenosaunee Six Nations counter proposal communicating Canada feels it represented a fair offer of compensation for the Welland Canada Flooding and they [Canada] remains hopeful that the Haudenosaunee Six Nations will find some basis for moving forward. The Haudenosaunee Six Nations believe that compensation factor(s) for the Welland Canal flooding of 1829 and subsequent loss of the use of the land does not reflect in Canada’s current offer. Six Nations has estimated the true dollar amount of the Welland Canal Claim is more in the range of five hundred million to one billion dollars. The Haudenosaunee Six Nations is prepared to move forward with negotiations, focusing on land and perpetual care and maintenance for Six Nations. All parties agreed to meet on February 25, 2009 at the Oneida Business Park at 10:00 a.m. for a Lands Resolution Table Meeting. Canada will give its position papers on the Nathan Gage Claim and the Hamilton Port Dover Road Bed.
Ah! The Plank Road (bed). This will be interesting. HAMILTON-PORT DOVER PLANK ROAD (HWY 6) SOUTH ... Port Dover Friday the 13th NORTH ... Hamilton West Harbour - Burlington Heights - High Level Bridge

My Canada includes rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Two Row Wampum Treaty

Two Row Wampum Treaty
"It is said that, each nation shall stay in their own vessels, and travel the river side by side. Further, it is said, that neither nation will try to steer the vessel of the other." This is a treaty among Indigenous Nations, and with Canada. This is the true nature of our relationships with Indigenous Nations of 'Kanata'.
