#IdleNoMore – flash mob round dance at Brantford City Hall @ 6 pm
We are holding a flash mob round dance at Brantford City Hall (at the mayor’s office) today (Monday) at 6 pm as part of the international day of action in support of Idle No More. The action will be framed under the slogan of “Idle No More – Honor the Two Row!”
This action will kick off a campaign to insist that the city of Brantford do the following in order to live up to its responsibilities under the Two Row Wampum.
PEACE – Declare a moratorium on new developments until the underlying land claim issues in Brantford are resolved. In particular, support a halt to all development on such contested sites as Tutela Heights, Hardy Road, and Davisville. Onkwehonweh land rights must be respected, green space must be valued, and farmers need land to grow the food we need to eat. Expanding the city limits in order to pave over more land is wrong.
RESPECT – Immediately turn the water back on at Kanata Village. The City of Brantford’s decision to shut off the water not only creates a fire hazard but is also a sign of total disrespect to the rightful occupants of Kanata Village.
FRIENDSHIP – The City of Brantford must take the principles of the Two Row Wampum seriously. The Two Row has a prominent place in the city’s coat of arms and heritage, it’s time for all Citizens of Brantford – including the Mayor and the City Council – to live up to their responsibilities under the Two Row.
Following the flash mob on January 28 there will be a public forum at Kanata Village on Thursday January 31st at 7pm to discuss how the Two Row Wampum remains relevant today, and what future steps will be required to achieve these demands.
Hopefully you can join us tonight and again on Thursday as well.

An “Act of Genocide” Indian Residential Schools in Canada & Crimes Against Humanity Concealed – Revealed
The Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair was appointed the Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada in June, 2008. Justice Sinclair pointed out that the United Nations’ definition of genocide includes forcibly transferring children of a group to another group based on race.
He argued that in the past, Canada was careful to exclude its residential school policies from being scrutinized under this definition.
“But the reality is that to take children away from their families and place them in another group in society for the purpose of racial indoctrination was and is an act of genocide, and it occurs all around the world.” – Justice Sinclair
“Systemic Racism: Serious Crisis” – Former Supreme Court of Canada justice Frank Iacobucci
‘Systemic racism’ toward Onkwehon:we (indigenous) people in justice system is outlined in a stinging 2013 report by Former Supreme Court Justice Frank Iacobucci.
“I have called it a crisis, a serious crisis. And I am not an alarmist. We are talking about the lives and liberties of people. I don’t know if you can get more of an important issue subject than that.
... If we don’t take hold of this seriously, we are going to, I think be perpetrators, unwittingly, of personal tragedies here.
... We can’t continue to treat First Nations as objects. We have to be partners. I don’t care if it is in the justice system or economic development. " - Former Supreme Court of Canada justice Frank Iacobucci
