It’s been 27 years since Ellen Gabriel stood in a battle zone trying to explain to Canadians why the Mohawks of Kanesatake did not want the nearby Town of Oka to build a golf course in the pines, on sacred grounds in her territory.
Fast forward to 2017, Gabriel finds herself back in the same place, face to face with the same town, this time over a housing development.
The project according to Gabriel is encroaching on the pines, here Gabriel confronts the Mayor of Oka, Pascal Quevillon.
On Thursday, Gabriel sat down with APTN National News to talk about the issue.
Serge Simon is the Grand Chief of Kanesatake.
Here said he’s hoping that both sides allow him to work this problem through the proper channels.
