GRAND RIVER TERRITORY SIX NATIONS-Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s announcement Tuesday of changes to Canada’s land claim process does not affect Six Nations, or its land rights negotiations, says Mohawk Chief Allen MacNaughton, lead negotiator for the Six Nations Haudenoniso Confederacy Council.

Mohawk Chief MacNaughton said Harper’s announcement “is not a step forward at all.“ In fact, Chief MacNaughton said the Conservative government has taken a step back by forcing a limit on claims and a cap.

He said the federal crown has told Six Nations and the Canadian public, they cannot settle Six Nations land rights with land because Canada doesn’t have any land, “ We agree with Minister (of Indian Affairs Jim) Prentice . So if Canada doesn’t have any land they need to make arrangements, because they are squatting right now.”
