Onkwehon:we and Brantford residents unite and #landback Arrowdale

Bridges were being built between Save Arrowdale members and Onkwehon:we. One of the stated goals of the movement was to preserve the golf course; however, after learning more about the Haldimand Tract and land claims Heaslip admitted that “It might never be a golf course again.” Bomberry appreciates their assistance: “They’ve offered to do security at night and help out; but they have to understand that we have different rights, we are protected. You wanted it to stay green, you wanted it to stay a golf course, but I can’t promise that,” he said “You guys have it instilled in you that you have to fight legally and obey the laws, you guys will get justice in following this way, but now you’ve spent a lot of time, you’ve spent a lot of money to find out it’s to no avail; your legal system has let you down.

The Covid-19 epidemic, and the effect of business shutdowns on the Indigenous Economy

“Band Councils can’t collect any government money unless you go into a state of emergency. That’s the unfortunate part and that’s why you’ve got provinces and municipalities all calling these. You get no funding unless you do. That’s an interesting position for our people to be in; we’re really fucked. It gets back to my original point – we shouldn’t be closing our businesses. We should be doing everything in our power to make commerce safe.”
