Six Nations: Defenders of the Land. Part 2
Part 2: Leroy Hill, Cayuga Nation, is one of the Six Nations Confederacy chiefs who participates in the land negotiations with the federal and provincial governments. He explains the diplomatic efforts leading up to the land reclamation, and sheds light on the many frustrations they face in dialoguing with the Canadian government. Dawn Smith speaks about the ongoing low-intensity war waged against the people of Six Nations that is criminalizing those who uphold the Haudenosaunee Great Law, and defend the land.
