Six Nations of the Grand River is pleased to announce Yeyatakenhas - Sue Doxtator, as the new Director of Ogwadeni:deo, Child Protection Services, effective September 4, 2018. She is from the bear clan and a member of the Oneida Nation of the Thames with family connection to Six Nations.

Six Nations has recently been designated as a Children's Aid Society and it is with great anticipation that Yeyatakenhas will provide the leadership and ability to deliver a community program.
