Leaked Samsung documents prompt declaration to dismantle HDI: launch investigation

1297489333163_ORIGINALTwo Row Times, Nahnda Garlow
SIX NATIONS – A declaration was presented during Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council this weekend calling for the immediate dismantlement of HDI and dismissal of lawyer Aaron Detlor, HDI Director Hazel Hill and HDI board member Brian Doolittle.

This declaration, read aloud in council by Cayuga Wolf Chief Sam General, calls for the dismantlement of the HDI for not negotiating in good faith on behalf of the Confederacy, the immediate dismissal and removal of Detlor, Hill and Doolittle for misrepresenting the Confederacy, immediate halting of all HDI business and the launch of a full investigation into HDI by the Confederacy.

These demands come after copies of two Engagement Agreements HDI signed with with Samsung in 2013 and 2014, locally known as ‘the Samsung deals’, were leaked to clan families.

Those leaked documents reveal that HDI agreed to, on behalf of the HCCC and all Haudenosaunee member nations, waive Haudenosaunee sovereign immunity and any other claim of traditional or treaty rights surrounding Haudenosaunee right to lands that the projects are utilizing in exchange for financial compensation.

  2. This is absolutely disgraceful, but not at all surprising, knowing the depth of corruption in the wind scam / industry.
    It should & hopefully will,be a wake up call to other native bands/members/Chiefs et al,(Hello my Curve Lake Freinds & neighbours!) or anyone else considering doing business with this industry.
    Wonder how much Samsung paid to the Confederacies supposed representative lawyer to hugely backstab/screw his native clients?

  3. Pull up a chair!
    The liberal Green Energy Act and Six Nations.

    Is Six Nations too big too fail?

    Is it possible – Six Nations – assumed they were within their rights
    to claim land rights
    – that they possibly – did not have a right to claim;
    and then participate – in private wind turbine deals?

    Let’s hope Samsung and Six Nations –
    come out of the dark – with this leak;
    – the tip of all corruption!

    • I used to have a blind respect – for Six Nations.

      What did Samsung know – about Six Nations
      land claims?

      Why was:
      Haudenosaunee Development Institute formed?
      – and now a full investigation into their affairs.

      ‘[excerpt] Those leaked documents reveal that HDI agreed to, on behalf of the HCCC and all Haudenosaunee member nations, waive Haudenosaunee sovereign immunity and any other claim of traditional or treaty rights surrounding Haudenosaunee right to lands that the projects are utilizing in exchange for financial compensation.’

      Samsung is not stupid!
      And sadly – we have a liberal majority government.

    • Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation;
      and Yikes!…..another one –
      and the list goes on!

      The economy of Six Nations:

      ‘[excerpt] A potential partnership between Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation and Korean electronics giant Samsung is being hailed as a possible game-changer for the economy of Six Nations.

      The partnership would be responsible for a 400,000-panel solar farm as well as 67 wind turbines, with manufacturing operations to take place in Six Nations.

      “It really is a monumental achievement that we’ve gotten as far as we have with this program,” Six Nations economic development director Matt Jamieson tells CTV News.

      Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation economic development director Matt Jamieson talks to CTV News on Friday, June 21, 2013.

      Samsung’s Ontario operations were slashed earlier this week when the province cut its planned purchase of green electricity from Samsung by $3.7 billion.

      Samsung’s commitment to spend on new wind and solar projects in the province was also cut as a result, but Jamieson says none of that affects negotiations between the company and Six Nations.

      Since the Green Energy Act came into force in 2008, Jamieson says, Six Nations has been at the forefront of adopting wind and solar technologies.

      “It really is a monumental achievement that we’ve gotten as far as we have with this program,” he says.

      Jamieson says he remains a fan of green energy despite its price tag.

      “If you look at the rates in isolation of everything else … it may appear that the rates are high,” he says.

      “But if you look at the macro impact of energy production, renewable energy actually has a net positive impact on the environment.”

      In addition to the environmental benefits, green energy projects are seen as a way for First Nations to make it clear that they’re open for business.

      “There’s this misconception that First Nations generally, and Six Nations specifically, aren’t open to development, aren’t open to partnership and aren’t open to economic opportunity,” says Jamieson.

      “This is proof that we will engage in business on the right terms, provided the business or enterprise is aligned with our cultural values.”

  4. “Play with the bull … you get the horns”.
    “Lie down with pigs … you get up smelling like garbage”.
    “Play with fire … you get burned”.

    So many truisms, so little time …

    Yup, the movers, shakers and knob gobblers over at Samsung knew exactly what they were doing.

    Did Six Nations et al have visions of green $ugar plums dancing in their heads?
    Why not, who doesn’t like money?

    Have First Nations set themselves up as victims of the Big Bad White Wolf yet again?
    Starting to look that way.

    The wind companies have long been exposed as the underhanded, lying lickers that they are.
    If the FN don’t want to take advantage of all the free good advise found here and on many other anti-IWT sites, then so be it.

    Schadenfreude?
    Absolutely.

  5. Welcome to the CAP

    Note:
    Again – Why was:
    Haudenosaunee Development Institute formed?
    – and now a full investigation into their affairs.

    Question:
    Will the CAP be investigated;
    Haudenosaunee Development Institute/CAP;

    it appears – the CAP played a role –
    in the same process used
    in all Six Nations
    re:’economic development’ – wind deals;
    to consult and gain consensus of approval.

    ————————————————————————————————————-
    Matt Jamieson:
    And maybe Six Nations economic development director Matt Jamieson –
    although – CAsinos are his specialty
    could shed some light – on wind developments – that now appear to be
    tinged with corruption.
    Oh Yeah! – it still has a tinge of corruption!
