Kettle and Stony Point finalize settlement for Ipperwash
Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde addressed leaders, dignitaries and citizens in Kettle and Stony Point First Nation to mark a landmark agreement returning Stony Point lands to the Chippewa.
Bellegarde acknowledged the sacrifices of indigenous people who stood and defended the land.
Kettle and Stony Point First Nation citizens reclaimed their traditional territory at Ipperwash Provincial Park in the fall of 1995. This occupation resulted in the shooting death of Dudley George by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
In 2015 the community ratified a settlement with the federal government, including returning the land to the community as well as $90 million in compensation.
