Listen to JANIE JAMIESON, a Mohawk woman from Six Nations Grand River Territory (Southern Ontario), and daughter of a Residential School victim.

In February 2006, Janie and ten other women galvanized their community into stopping the ongoing encroachment of their lands by occupying an area called Douglas Creek Estate; land that had been illegally sold to a US-based developer to build a suburban housing development. This land, now called "Kanonstaton" (The Protected Place), is part of the Haldimand Tract (10kms on either side of the Grand River) and is the centerpiece of the communities land negotiations with the Canadian government. Janie and her community continue to stand strong, demanding a peaceful negotiated resolution despite the threat to send in the army and police forces.
