Land Purchases
Where lands have been unlawfully alienated to third parties, the option of having lands returned as part of the compensation must be available. To assist the process, Six Nations has and should continue to purchase lands to add to Six Nations land base. When settlements are negotiated for these purchased areas, Six Nations will be reimbursed for these land acquisition costs as our conditions to future settlements by a Trust Agreement, these lands are held in trust by three (3) Six Nations lawyers for the use and benefit of the Six Nations.

Example: On April 17, 1991, Six Nations and the Ministry of Transportation entered into an Interim Agreement to allow repairs to a provincial road on lands outside of the Six Nations boundary but on land where specific claims remain unresolved. Ontario paid to use the 15.4694 acres at issue until the claim is resolved. A new agreement would be required for continued use of these 15.4694 acres if the claim is decided in favour of Six Nations. The monies from this agreement were used to purchase two separate parcels of land adjacent to the Reserve, one parcel in Oneida Township and another in Onondaga Township to be added to Six Nations' Indian Reserve No. 40.

The following lands have been purchased:
