Within the Haudenosaunee tradition the “wood’s edge (Tsi Karhakta)” is a place of transition. It is a point where the world of your making is met with the uncertainty of the realms beyond. It is also where travelers are met and defined. A place where strangers are made into family. This “edge of the rez podcast” will bring you into my small world – a place where the world of one Native American family will open up for you to share.

BTFDNews’s lifespan will be directly tied to the amount of time and energy our writers spend, and from the ongoing community support of readers like you who recognize the value of independent media and believe in BTFDNews’s ability to serve the community with a focus on collaborative writing, open journalism and analysis that provides a unique view on local issues that matter to everyone.
As a volunteer-driven, non-profit publication, BTDNews does not use ads to generate funds and currently with limited financial input that covers only a fraction of the cost of production, we couldn’t be more grateful when those who are able choose to give a little more. In exchange for your contribution, we’ll include your name on our donor list. (unless you prefer to remain anonymous).
The site was set up for the Haudenosaunee & Raseron:ni Neighbourhood Association of Brantford as a point of contact for news, events and volunteer schedule.
Established in either 1142 or 1451, the Five Nations Iroquois confederacy consisted of the Mohawks, the Oneidas, the Onondagas, the Cayugas, and the Senecas. When the Tuscaroras joined in 1712 the union adapted the name Haudenosaunee, which translates to mean “People building a longhouse”.
In treaties and other colonial documents they were known as the “Six Nations.” While each tribe controlled its own domestic affairs, the council at Onondaga controlled matters that referred to the nation as a whole. Similarly, despite the fact that all spoke the same language, each tribe had a distinct dialect of its own. Thus not only did the Iroquois provide a strong government and military base to protect their farmland, they also formed one of the nation’s earliest and strongest diplomacies.
The Geographic boundaries of Brantford, Six nations Domain are unbound and transcend the political boundaries of the Corporation of the City of Brantford and will continue to grow as we develop a demographic of our members.
Haudenosaunee & Raseron:ni Neighbourhood Association of Brantford offers programs, services and events to enrich personal, peer and Haudenosaunee & Raseron:ni good governance relationships.
Everyone in Brantford has the opportunity to engage and participate in their distinct and extrinsic community. Building a mechanism to help both communities determine who is Haudenosaunee & who is Raseron:ni.
We believe that everyone has the opportunity to participate;
We believe in community development through partnerships and collaboration;
We believe volunteerism is the foundation of our organization;
We believe in creating a safe, fun environment for all;
We believe in transparency, confidentiality and respect for one another and our community.
This is a language site that I built as a personal pet project that Helps me learn the Mohawk Language. There is a lot of features to the site and a lot of information to help the viewer become familiar with the endangered status of the Mohawk language. A forum helps build a community zone to test new words or share stories and internet media with other like-minded people.
The design was made to let the viewer have some fun elements that will eventually be slightly more animated. A dark background was used to lower the impact of the prolonged use of the site. With a mobile-first approach, the site will meet and size dimensions.
A social media was fully themed using the website’s graphics, and playful colors. @mohdictionary was chosen for the English familiarity.
