These are the faces of those responsible for the GENOCIDE of the Algonquin nation. The man in the red shirt on with the big smile on his face is Bob Potts the mastermind behind it all
The Legacy of the Algonquin Land Claim
The Collins dictionary refers to genocide as “murder of a nationality or ethnic group”.
The United Nations has an expanded version on what “genocide” really means when it comes to the Algonquin land as well as all aboriginal. I have included the expanded version taken from the 7 Algonquin Hunters’ website.
The Algonquin land claim began as a process designed to include all Algonquins. Bob Potts of the Toronto based law firm of Blaney McMurtry was hired by chief and council of Pikwaganagan Reserve (even though they have no legal right to negotiate since they already are wards of the Government) to serve as principal negotiator.
Mr. Potts quickly learned that the key to gaining full control of the negotiations team was money. Taxpayers are funding this process and are left unaware of how tax dollars are being misused when it comes to this land claim. There is no reporting process and minutes of meetings are kept to a minimum. Mr. Potts realized early, in the period leading up the start of the negotiations that he would be able to gain complete control of the Algonquin land claim negotiations. All he need do was use taxpayer dollars to convince his group and promise them untold wealth. In other words “sell out your brothers and sisters, I’ll make sure you’re taken care of.”
They bowed to his wishes and he now controls the funding (trust fund runs through his office), the dispersion of funds, the election process, community leaders, he decides who is eligible to be an Algonquin, the hiring of consultants and he has appointed himself as senior legal counsel. The Algonquin negotiators are nothing more than well paid props. Their only purpose is to justify Mr. Potts’ complete control of the Algonquin land claim.
The Ottawa Algonquin First Nation had a seat at the negotiations table. When it became evident that the Algonquin land claim had become a one man show and this man would stoop to any level to deny the true Algonquin communities from being part of the negotiations process, we withdrew our support and walked away from the negotiations. Another Ottawa community was quickly born by parachuting 27 members from that mystical community of Greater Golden Lake. The same as what was done with the Ardoch community prior to that. Mr. Potts then proceeded to slander the leader of the Algonquin First Nation. The actions of a desperate man who’s biggest fear was losing taxpayer funding (he pays himself $450.00 per hr, plus expenses.) Of course, the governments, in particular Ontario who have no legal right to negotiate any form of land claim, didn’t ask any questions even though their representatives have been aware of the fraud that’s being systematically committed.
Many Algonquins have received letters and phone calls from Mr. Potts as well as ANRs (a copy is attached) advising them that their ancestral line does not qualify them to be Algonquin. Mr. Potts has begun his own version of genocide by excluding non status Algonquins as beneficiaries of the Algonquin land claim. Mr. Potts has the blessing of those who claim to represent you and your community.
A copy of an email is attached and is self explanatory on how one of several members plans to take legal action against Mr. Potts and his team of ANRS. Long overdue! The time has come to stand together take action and hold those responsible for the genocide being committed against the Algonquin people. This is an Algonquin land claim not a Potts land claim.
As a non-status Algonquin, your constitutional rights are being extinguished.
Don't sell out for a moose tag! Your ANRs are using the lure of a moose tag to advance their cause.

LAND CLAIM UPDATE – YOUR ALGONQUIN HERITAGE AND YOUR RIGHTS ARE BEING PUT INTO QUESTION
After years of land claim negotiations and millions of dollars YOU are being asked to re-enrol to become eligible for benefits of the Algonquin land claim. What begs the question is, is Helen Sarazin’s and Joan Holmes’ credibility as genealogists being put into question? Does this also mean that some of those who have hunted as Algonquins will now be told they do not qualify?
According to Lynn

Here is an interesting article that outlines how native people have been mistreated and lied to.
It is amazing when you read this article how today's Algonquin land claim compares to that of days gone by. The article is entitled "Who's on Trial". It tells the story of how a governmnt agent manipulated the government while pocketing money that was destine for native people.
The Algonquin land claim has its own Indian agents - draw your own conclusion. Today false communities are created in order to advance a corrupt process.
