Mohawk Nation News

MNN. June 25, 2009. The neo-nazi Caledonia Militia was formed in Cayuga Ontario on June 23rd with insignias on their uniforms such as Northern Alliance and Rahowa [Racial Holy War]. Another was formed in Picton. Civilians carrying out military actions against a designated race is a criminal offence.

Akwesasne has been isolated since June 1, 2009. The US and Canada have blocked both bridges to Kawenoke, Cornwall Island. We demanded no guns in our community. This took the steam out of the fake propaganda designating us as militants to justify armed aggression against us.

To take away our civil rights, Canada’s Department of National Defense manual designated us as insurgents. International Global Risk lists us as terrorists, along with Al Qaida, Tamil Tigers and the Taliban. These are unfounded slurs against our valiant people. During WW II we declared war against the Nazis on the steps of the Capitol. Many of our men died defending democracy and Great Turtle Island.

Predator drones that prey on and attack enemy combatants are flying over us and our neighbors. They are being launched from the Fort Drum US military base. They fly three miles up under the civilian US Customs and Border Protection Agency. These civilian and military agencies are under one command.

A major political agenda is being advanced, taking over northern Great Turtle Island to set up a dictatorship.

These two fascist civilian militias openly profess racism and violence against us. They appear to have legal protection. They are financed with lots of money, maybe by the multinationals. They are well equipped with radios, high tech supplies and maybe weapons like pepper spray, tasers or other gadgets.
Half of the US presence In Iraq are private armies or mercenaries under no scrutiny like militias. Former military or private security or independent mercenaries train them to attack unarmed civilians.

Storm troops play a key role in setting up totalitarian power. The regular military is sent out of the country. Mercenaries take over the homeland. Small squads with subordinate groups are organized throughout the country. They come together in large formations. They test experimental tactics and weapons. Incognito mercenaries stand at the back of meetings to protect the militias.

Gary McHale and Doug Fleming, well-known neo-nazis, are setting up these militias in Ontario. Politician, Randy Hillier, has a longtime connection with these Red Necks. While aspiring to head the Ontario Conservatives, Hillier constantly calls for launching the army against the Indigenous and taking the law into his own hands. No habeas corpus. No civil rights for us.

US and Canada do not want to make it look like the cops are going after us. Vigilantes do the dirty work. They operate outside the law and create their own. McHale and Fleming plan direct confrontations with us, to shut down our trade and commerce and use force to carry out illegal arrests. Weapons, tasers and threats will be used. We will be held until the cops or military arrive to take us to jail or holding units. They will be trained to go to court to testify against us and get convictions.

Fascist moles seem to have wormed their way into the government, policing, military and the court and prison system.

Fascist right wing hit squads recruit from the unemployed, working class, local agitators, drunks, drug addicts, deadbeat dads, brawlers, KKK, skinheads, ex-police and ex-soldiers. The court and prison systems provide them with gangsters and criminals. They are especially interested in those who hate us and want to physically hurt us. They’re losers who want to be winners. To get around any bans, 14 to 18 year olds can attack people without being charged as adults.
Militias see themselves as the ground forces that create and attack scapegoats. These goons hope to grow to thousands and maybe more. They could outnumber the regular army and police forces. They hope to become big shots in the big new order that will rule the world for a thousand years! The politicians think they can control the militia and the mobs. Eventually the psychopaths will step in like the SS that surrounded their messianic leader, Adolph Hitler.

To continue their bogus war on terror, the international war thugs have to destroy democracy where everyone is equal and has a voice. Our constitution, the Great Law of Peace, is the model for the US Constitution. The Two Row Wampum international relationship comes from our constitution. We were the first nation to take the Great Law and we intend to uphold constitutional law.

We condemn these uprisings by these foreign interests who are violating the harmonious relationships we developed through treaties, agreements and negotiated covenants. We refuse to be anyone’s victims. We Indigenous People are one and we stand together!

MNN. June 28, 2009. To support the Mohawks of Akwesasne who refuse to allow the border guards to carry guns at the CBSA check point, a Peace Caravan will be arriving on Wednesay, June 30. It will start in Six Nations and head east on the 401 to the Cornwall exit. The Six Nations police will be escorting the caravan over the International Bridge to Kahwenoke, Cornwall Island, to the tent site next to the former Canada Customs at approx. 3pm. There may be over 200 cars plus 4 buses. Hundreds of supporters are expected. Many are arriving on Tues. June 29th. All are welcome to stay for July 1st to hear speakers and take part in socials.
For those coming from the US side or making donations, they may go to or cross over from Loran Thompson’s Dock or Mac’s Marina at the old church in St. Regis, off Highway 37 to Cornwall Island.
Bring your camping gear.
NEEDED: water, food and money. Funds would be greatly appreciated: Go to and donate online. For donations by check or money order please send to: Akwesasne Womens Fire, 936 Island Rd, Akwesasne ON K6H 5R7
For further information please contact: Rosemarie White 613-933-8784; Veronica Cook; 915-886-0210; Neddy Thompson 613-577-4647; and Nona Benedict 613-551-5421 (c) 613-938-8145 (h)
NOTE: Please disregard the unsigned June 27th press release from the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne which tried to redirect supporters to Ottawa. [613-936-1548]. Health Canada also gave a dire warning for Indigenous communities to stay away from large social gatherings to stop the spread of swine flu. Former Chief Nona Benedict responded: “Does this mean July 1 Fireworks are canceled, as well as all future lacrosse games at the arena and the Akwesasne Pow-wow?”

Canada is reviving the old tactic of disinformation, intimidation and threats. We are in the right. We don’t want guns! This is a time to negotiate from a position of strength, not fear or weakness. We can’t have appeasers make deals behind our backs. If we start giving away piecemeal, eventually we will wind up with nothing.
The Mohawks are obviously not going to break the peace that has pervaded the situation from the beginning to now. The Peacemaker Dekanawida and our ancestors will be proud of the message of peace that we have maintained. If anybody causes trouble, it will be outside agitators, police forces, military, undercover agents and professional trouble makers. We won’t fall for it. We will protect each other.
We thank everybody for supporting us.

MNN. June 30, 2009. A co-called confederacy chief from the Up-the-Hill Longhouse in Kahnawake will be canoeing down the St. Lawrence River to Quebec City to celebrate Canada Day on July 1. They are going to plant a tree of peace. At the same time, a delegation of real Haudenosaunee chiefs is going to Akwesasne to discuss the true meaning of the Two Row Wampum.
A dubious foreign peace mission has appeared on the scene. They put out a video of the blessing by this Chief. The spectacle was in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal on June 28th 2009. Priests, actors dressed as voyageurs and Indians took part. They are purporting that the Two Row Wampum agreement is going to transfer allegiances of the Mohawk from the British to the European community.
They are forming an alliance with the French, the longtime enemies of the Iroquois ever since Champlain shot our Rotiyaner the first time he met them. The real Confederacy maintains our traditional nation-to-nation relationship with the Dutch and British.
There is only one Tree of Peace planted in Onondaga near Syracuse where the original chairman of the Confederacy, Atotarho, was installed. This group appears to want to transfer the head of the Confederacy to Quebec City!
The Two Row Wampum, or Guswentha, consists of two rows of purple wampum beads on a background of white beads. This signifies the paths of the Haudenosaunee and that of our friends and allies. We agreed to travel on parallel paths never touching. It was a declaration of peaceful co-existence between us.
Guswentha was here from the beginning, long before the coming of any foreigners to this land. This concept of non-interference was unknown to the newcomers. We still promote this idea. The League of Nations, the UN and all international agreements and pacts are based on the Guswentha. The European community has not respected this relationship so that they can continue to steal and commit acts of genocide against is. If they complied, they would have to correct the wrongs.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper apologizing to us for the residential school abuse and killings from one side of his face does not correct or erase the wrongs committed in the past, present and what is planned for the future.
The first two row agreement was with the Dutch government in 1613 symbolized by our belt and the hemp. With the French it was the iron chain. With the British it was the Silver Covenant Chain. With the US it was the gold chain which is seen on uniforms and other symbols.
The Five Nations Haudenosaunee allied with the British and defeated the French. We pushed back the US from taking over the northern part of Great Turtle Island.
It looks like this group wants to symbolically change this arrangement by transferring this allegiance of the Iroquois over to the European religious community [Catholic]. All Haudenosaunee and our allies, which includes most of the Indigenous Nations of Great Turtle Island, must agree to any change. Nobody has been consulted. Do they think they will get away with this travesty as they use video on the internet to propagandize their farce?
France has always tried to take over Great Turtle Island. They think they have to come in through Quebec and Canada and then into the US. They know they have to make arrangements with the Confederacy.
The Up-the-Hill group doesn’t seem to learn from history. When the battle was over, all the Ongwehonwe who allied themselves with the Europeans were always rewarded with genocide. They are entering an illegal agreement with another foreign entity. They do not have that authority.
In the 1980s the Haudenosaunee Land Rights Committee made a presentation to the Quebec government on our position. A recital was done of the first three wampum strings to clear the eyes, ears and throat. Then a presentation was made on the Two Row Wampum and the Circle of 50 Chiefs.
The Quebec cabinet asked if we would form an alliance with the Separatists. They knew they needed our permission. We asked them whether they would recognize and respect us as the original sovereign people of this land. No answer was given. They wanted our support to legitimize their separation from Canada and become a pawn in the hands of the European community. Once they became independent, they would treat us as badly as the English and US. Our allegiance is not to the French, English or US. We have a friendship with them that we want to keep. Any decision we make must be in the best interests of all our people.
One year ago the German Pope came to Great Turtle Island, kissed the ground and claimed it for Europe. The Up-the-Hill and French alliance ceremony done at the main Catholic Church in Montreal symbolizes an agreement with an ecclesiastical hierarchy which is centered in Rome. The Roman Catholic Church has dominated the monarchies and governments of Europe for over 1000 years. This invalid agreement would be between a would-be Confederacy chief and the ecclesiastics of Europe.
A valid agreement is between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and other sovereign nations. They were made on a secular political basis, between sovereign states that represent the people. Any agreement with a church or religious organization is not binding or enforceable. It violates the Great Law where no religion governs the Haudenosaunee.
This appears to be the European community trying to furthering their new world order agenda. We suspect that the Jesuits and their European backers have influenced this phony agreement. It is not legitimate because the true Confederacy, the Haudenosaunee and the Indigenous are not involved. This is a desperate attempt to misrepresent and rob all of us.

MNN. July 1, 2009. On Monday June 1st 2009 the Canadian Border Service Agency was to take up arms at the border crossing in the middle of Akwesasne of Mohawk Nation Territory. The people protested. At 11:30 pm on May 31st the CBSA guards abandoned their post and left. Since then, we have peacefully camped on the grounds next to the facility. This is the first video on the ongoing events in the camp and the people.
No band councilors showed up. They have been intimidated by the government, are afraid and caved in. It’s a powerful grassroots Peoples movement with no support from any government.

The caravan was greeted by an emotional welcoming ceremony and social. The people were overwhelmed by the sight of the caravan approaching over the International Bridge onto Kawenoke on Cornwall Island. We will keep it peaceful. The Customs Building is being maintained. Please send your messages of support to
Please keep supporting us. The Chocktaw Nation of Oklahoma is coming to bring supplies and to meet the people.
Two Indigenous men hitchhiked from Vancouver. Jayson Fleury said that we are being eliminated by guns. We came to support our brothers and sisters to stop the genocide of our people. His sister ended up as one of Picton’s victims on the farm where dozens of our women were murdered. We will never accept outsiders carrying guns in their midst.
Old videos of gunfire 20 years ago are being used as part of the training of the CBSA that work on the island, completely ignoring the peace that has since prevailed. They probably watch old films where a cowboy shoots one bullet and knocks a whole tribe off their horses. The blue-eyed fat Indians with Brooklyn accents were played by Italians and others. Prejudice is being promoted by showing these kind of old movies to scare the CBSA.
