At a duly convened council on January 3, 2015, the Hodiyanehsoh carefully considered the proposed Alcohol Law and Brewery at Six Nations Grand River Territory.

After careful reflection and consideration of the damaging effects that alcohol has had on our people and continues to have, the Hodiyanehsoh unanimously agreed that it would be in violation of our Creator given laws to support and encourage the use of Dega’nigohade:nyohs, “Mindchangers” (Alcohol and Drugs).

As such, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council does not support the manufacturing or retailing of alcohol or drugs and are opposed to any effort to bring danger into our Territory.

Please govern yourselves accordingly.

In Peace and Friendship,
Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council
