Note .. there are factual errors in zox's comment.

The main point of Rutherford and Welsh's article is that the Haudenosaunee do have aboriginal rights in the Haldimand Tract, and much of southern Ontario, according to the Nanfan Treaty of 1701. A previous writer to the Spec, Hagopian, had claimed they were not in the area until 1784. A UofT professor recently made the same mistake in the press.

Some in Hamilton may recall the Six Nations presence in the Red Hill Valley. Their presence was validated by their aboriginal rights as documented by the Nanfan 1701 Treaty.
