From August 21-23rd, the first ever Peace and Friendship Gathering was held at the Six Nations Iroquois reserve in southern Ontario. The gathering, which was organized by the Men's Fire of Six Nations, was planned to honour the long struggle for survival of people from that territory, and also to honour the support which they have received throughout the years from non-native people.

On February 28th, 2006, a group of native women began a peaceful occupation of a home development site, known as the "Douglas Creek Estates", on Six Nations land. The occupation was widely supported by community members of Six Nations, and led to a successful stopping of housing developments on native lands, despite a brutal attack by the Ontario Provincial Police on native protestors in April, 2006. To this day, the people of Six Naitons have succeeded in stopping the Douglas Creek Estates developments on their land, and many other development sites on Six Nations' territory.

The Peace and Friendship Gathering brought together hundreds of participants, native and non-native, to enjoy panel discussions, workshops, Iroquois ceremonies, and music. These are some of the sounds from that gathering, held on the banks of the Grand River, in Six Nations territory.
