JACQUELINE HOUSE (Cayuga, Six Nations of the Grand River) was one of the people who planned the reclamation of Kanenhstaton (the protected place) and has been camped on the land since Day 1. She will provide some background information to the action as well as an update.

DOREEN SILVERSMITH (Cayuga, Six Nations of the Grand River) will report on the results of her trip to the United Nations in Geneva where she presented on the Reclamation of Kanenhstaton.

PETER HILL (Onandaga, Six Nations of the Grand River) is a Native Studies specialist and will provide historical information on what has happened to the territories of the Grand River community.

SALVADOR GALLEGOS-SANTINOLI (Mapuche) works with the "Mapuche and Campesino Front of Resistance". He will address the urgent situation regarding the Mapuche Political Prisoners, young leaders active in reclaiming much needed ancestral land from privately owned forestry corporations favoured by the government. These leaders were tried as terrorists for defending with their bare hands what is rightfully their community’s ancestral land.

The event is free but cash or cheque donations to the Six Nations reclamation efforts will be accepted. Cheques should be made out to Janie Jamieson.
