Six Nations Elected Council Statement on Indigenous People’s Day


The Six Nations Elected Council would like to wish everyone a safe Solidarity & Unity Weekend. This weekend is about bringing our community together and celebrating our diversity through fun and interactive activities throughout the day Rain or Shine. It’s an opportunity for us as a community to share with one another and learn about how we have all contributed to our rich history. We are stronger together.

Today is also a day to honour our people and our ancestors, and all those who have come before. Their leadership and incredible resilience have paved the path forward today, and for generations yet to come. This year is particularly special as we will be honouring our past and present NHL/WHA players during a Commemoration Ceremony. We are asking everyone to join us in honouring these individuals who continue to represent Six Nations at the highest level of sport. This ceremony will begin at 12p.m. on Friday June 21, 2019.

To our neighbours, today and every day, we invite you to join with Indigenous peoples across the country to learn, recognize and celebrate the diverse cultures, contributions and achievements of the Indigenous people and territory you live on or close to. Building relationships on understanding and respect will support all of us moving forward and advancing our well-being and way of life.

We are inviting everyone to join us at the Community Hall on Friday June 21, to honour our people and celebrate our diversity. In addition, if you cannot attend the Solidarity Day events, you can also celebrate our unity with Ganohkwasra at the Six Nations Unity Block Party on Saturday, June 22 at the Plaza and White Pines parking lot.

  1. This is yet another example of the ongoing genocide against the People that will never cease to exist! I think this WAS a targeted attack. If the cops really got the wrong house, they would NOT have disrespectfully torn down their Warrior flag or break windows when they barged in like that! So, count this as another strike against major oppression!
