Youth & Elders Forum about Aboriginal and Police Relations

On April 22, 2005, the Ipperwash Inquiry hosted a Youth & Elders Forum about Aboriginal and Police Relations in Forest, Ontario. Approximately 70 people participated, including elders and youth from Aamjiwnaang (Sarnia) First Nation, Aazhoodena, Bkwejwanong Territory (Walpole Island) First Nation, Chippewas of the Thames, Delaware Nation (Moravin of the Thames), Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, Munsee-Delaware Nation and the Oneida of the Thames.

Elder Fred Plain from Aamjiwnaang First Nation gave the opening and closing prayer, and Justice of the Peace Donna Phillips from Oneida of the Thames First Nation delivered the keynote address. The Ipperwash Inquiry Commissioner, Mr. Justice Sidney Linden, and lead Commission Counsel, Derry Millar, participated in the Forum. Jodie-Lynn Waddilove, who is from Munsee-Delaware First Nation and is Assistant Commission counsel, facilitated the Forum.
