Six Nations Council briefs

New wedding officiant on Six Nations for unique nuptials

Six Nations Elected Council agreed to provide a letter of support for a local woman, Jamie Montour, to act as a wedding officiant on Six Nations for couples who may not wish to partake in other types of ceremonies, such as Christian or longhouse wedding ceremonies.


Disc-golf course construction project will cost $126,000

Parks and Recreation is helping a local woman bring her dream of building a disc-golf course on Six Nations to fruition.

Bonnie Whitlow, an avid disc golfer, wants to build a field here for the sport.

The plan is to put it on the south side of the Six Nations Sports fields (behind the blue track), and the planning team has already obtained $46,000 for the project from the Six Nations of the Grand River Economic Development Trust.

“We’re just at the rudimentary stage right now,” said Parks and Recreation Director Cheryl Henhawk.

She said they’re just getting an idea to see how far the $46,000 can go in the project.

Henhawk said “We’d like to see it happen this year.”

Whitlow said disc-golf is a year-round sport and there’s never an off-season but that the $46,000 would be enough for the whole project.

“It has become an official worldwide sport.”

Disc golf, formerly known as frisbee golf, is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target; it is played using rules similar to golf.
