White settlers attacked peaceful Indian villages, killing indiscriminately, which led in turn to reprisals that threatened to set the frontier ablaze. This insatiable appetite for more Indian land was probably as much a driving force behind the American Revolution as British tariffs ever were. This offshoot village, known to Mohawks as Akwesasne and the French as Saint-Regis, was established where the Racquette and St. Regis Rivers joined the St. Lawrence River near the 45th parallel. The French government allowed the creation of this village in the hopes that it would draw more Mohawks away from the Mohawk Valley and the strong English influences there. Three or four families of no more than about thirty people from Kahnawake came to Akwesasne with a priest, Father Billiard in the fall of 1754.
It is important to say this because these two Innu communities are located in remote areas, just like mine, and I wish to see him travel to the territories of his Innu grandparents later in life. Joey currently lives in Quebec with his mother and Wendat family. His Wendat grandfather has vast knowledge of the history of his ancestors. Like in most Northern remote areas, we have a Northern general and grocery store. When people travel to Sept-Îles, they often come back with groceries to have fresher food and, especially, to save money. There are two hotels, three restaurants, a guest house, a convenience store, and an arena. We have pretty much everything we need except for a hospital, but there are medevacs available for emergencies. The people here are very entrepreneurial, so a number of businesses are locally owned. Without a road, the only ways to get here from southern Quebec are by train from Sept-Îles or by plane.
It felt great to be in the middle of all that energy and was a “moment” for me attending my first Pow Wow! There are a few times during the afternoon where there was Open Dance. I’m not sure if this is the case at every Pow Wow, everywhere. But I learned a lot of Pow Wows are actually competitions where the dancers and drum circle members are competing. This should go without saying but I saw one too many people taking photos of Indigenous First Nations members who were a part of the crowd without asking. A ceremony takes place welcoming everyone, especially the dancers and drum circles, and the Pow Wow is officially opened by the Grand Chief, in this case the Grand Chief of the Huron-Wendat Nation.

During each game the deck of cards is shuffled and then the cards are revealed one at a time. When a card is revealed, each player will add the corresponding tile to their developing city if they are able and want to. Not playing a tile will cost you points, so it is almost always more preferable to play one than to not play one. Delta Bingo & Gaming is extremely proud to support each community it’s a part of. With dedication to over 750 local charities, the Delta Group of Bingo & Gaming centres have raised over $64 Million dollars.

In modern times the Jesuit missionaries of long ago have become scapegoats for the loss of our pre-contact culture. Accounts from the late 1800’s indicate that of all the Iroquois people still living in New York State, the native language was the strongest at Akwesasne. To their credit, the Jesuits never insisted that their converts learn a European language or assimilate with the outside culture. Mission registers in the late 18th and 19th centuries, for example, didn’t even list non-Mohawk family names when such names were known to exist. In time the population of these villages grew so large that new ones were established. By the 1750’s these villages eventually united in an alliance that Mohawks knew as Tsiata Nihononwentsiake, also known as the Seven Nations of Canada, the Seven Fires, and the Seven Villages. Samuel de Champlain formed alliances with the Hurons and Algonquins to establish a fur trading network in the New World that would reach the Great Lakes.

Along with my colleagues, I organize activities that aim to improve the well-being of the community. What is striking to me is the strong spirit of solidarity. For example, when someone is sick, people organize radiothons and bingo nights to help the family. When families are sent to the city for health treatment, they have no real income. The most important aspect of that whole equation for me, personally, is the play time. If My City took any more time to play than it does, I would probably not like it at all. It’s a quick game that my wife and I can get a play of before having to rush off after a long day working from home to pick up our son from his daycare. In these topsy turvy times, it can feel like a miracle just getting to play any kind of game at all. This side of the player boards is for the standalone game.Just to give you an idea of how the game might change from one episode to the next, I’m going to give you a brief overview of episodes 1 through 3.
