This northwestern Ontario community of is a peaceful-looking and popular tourist nestled in a rugged setting of forests and waterways. But it has another side to its revealed a number of times over the last of racial strife and discord. Latest manifestation of a problem no one seems able to solve is the armed oc- cupation of a small park on the town's fringe by a group of dissident Indians seemingly bent on violence unless positive results are realized from their grievances. Anicinabe Park has become a fortress while Indians back their demands with threats of death and destruction. Estimates place the occupation force at between 150 and haif of them women and children Some release from the tension came Friday with an agreement on a truce dur- ing which the Indians will lay down their weapons while the authorities at to refrain from any attempts to move them. Talks are-scheduled to resume Monday. The occupation began last Monday with the Ojibway Warrior Society taking credit for it. But at least some of the Indian leaders are members of the American In- dian the group that was involved in the violent occupation of Wounded just over a year ago. Kcnora is no stranger to conflict with the Indian population. In about 400 of them marched on a town council meeting to complain of discrimination and lack of job opportunities.

Those taking part in the confrontation feel that years of conferences and legalities have done little to improve the Indians' lot in society. Besides the job-opportunity the Indians are demanding that a provin- cial judge be removed from the that a police college offering' training in how to deal with Indians be that stronger human rights legislation be passed and that a native council on alcoholism be formed. They also claim that Anicinabe Park belongs to the natives and was sold without authority to the town. The most serious threat of violence oc- curred Wednesday night when a handful of rifle-toting white men took up up positions at the park entrance. Police moved in and one of the men was taken away while the others disappeared into the woods.
