Iroquois Caucus opposes modern proposed Algonquin treaty
The Iroquois Caucus held a press conference today in Ottawa declaring “resolute opposition” to the proposed capital funding and lands treaty sought by a group of Algonquin nations.
The Algonquins of Ontario is seeking to establish a land base for 9 of the 10 nations they represent.
There are over 117,000 acres of land in the proposed treaty/land claim.
However a large portion of these lands are also part of the traditional land base of Iroquois Nations.
Iroquois Caucus says they have raised concerns with the AOO, Canada and the province but have not received conclusive responses to those concerns.
