Re: SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND RIVER ELECTED COUNCIL OPEN INVITATION TO THE HAUDENOSAUNEE CONFEDERACY CHIEFS COUNCIL AND CLAN MOTHERS
Chiefs and Clan Mothers,
The Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council (SNGREC) are inviting the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council (HCCC) and Clan Mothers to a public meeting. This meeting will be leadership to leadership at a mutually agreed upon date, location & agenda and will be open to Six Nations people.
There is precedence with SNGREC and HCCC working together for the benefit of our people, this partnership occurred during the negotiations with Canada and Ontario regarding “Kanonhstaton” (The Protected Place), formerly known as Douglas Creek Estates. During this difficult time, the Six Nations people witnessed first-hand what can be accomplished when our two councils are united and work together towards a common goal.
Joint Councils were held once a month between SNGREC and HCCC during the negotiations, these meetings were conducted to solidify the partnership between the two councils and to provide accountability and transparency to all of our Six Nations people.
After nearly 100 years we continue to persevere and work towards a better future for all of our people. As we did from 2006-2009, we again can build on our collective strengths for the future and prosperity of all our people. It’s our responsibility as community leaders to show our people what can be accomplished when we put our “good minds” together once again.
