Thanks in advance for your help getting this important book into the world!

The first collection of its kind, this anthology by members of the Mohawk Warrior Society uncovers a hidden history and paints a bold portrait of the spectacular experience of Kanien’kehá:ka survival and self-defense. Providing extensive documentation, context, and analysis, the book features foundational writings by prolific visual artist and polemicist Louis Karoniaktajeh Hall (1918–1993)—such as his landmark 1979 pamphlet, The Warrior’s Handbook, as well as selections of his pioneering artwork. This book contains new oral history by key figures of the Rotisken’rhakéhte’s revival in the 1970s, and tells the story of the Warriors’ famous flag, their armed occupation of Ganienkeh in 1974, and the role of their constitution, the Great Peace, in guiding their commitment to freedom and independence. We hear directly the story of how the Kanien’kehá:ka Longhouse became one the most militant resistance groups in North America, gaining international attention with the Oka Crisis of 1990. This auto-history of the Rotisken’rhakéhte is complemented by a Mohawk history timeline from colonization to the present, a glossary of Mohawk political philosophy, and a new map in the Kanien’kéha language. At last, the Mohawk Warriors can tell their own story with their own voices, and to serve as an example and inspiration for future generations struggling against the environmental, cultural, and social devastation cast upon the modern world.

The book is by Louis Karoniaktajeh Hall, Kahentinetha Rotiskarewake, Philippe Blouin, Matt Peterson, and Malek Rasamny.

Praise

“While many have heard of AIM & the Red Power movement of the ’60s and ’70s, most probably do not know the story of the Mohawk warriors and their influence on Indigenous struggles for land and self-determination, then and now. These include the 1974 Ganienkeh land  reclamation (which still exists today as sovereign Mohawk territory),  the 1990 Oka Crisis (an armed standoff that revived the fighting spirit & warrior culture of Indigenous peoples across North America), and the Warrior/Warrior Unity flag, a powerful symbol of Indigenous resistance today commonly seen at blockades & rallies. The Mohawk Warrior Society tells this history in the words of the Mohawks themselves. Comprised of  interviews with some of the key participants, as well as The Warrior’s Handbook and Rebuilding the Iroquois Confederacy (both written by Louis Karoniaktajeh Hall, who also designed the Warrior/Unity flag), this book documents the important contributions Mohawk warriors have made to modern Indigenous resistance in North America.”
—Gord Hill, Kwakwaka’wakw, author of 500 Years of Indigenous Resistance and The Antifa Comic Book

“This clear and stimulating book had me on edge from beginning to end. No matter who we are we can learn from these histories of the Iroquois Confederacy as related by its present-day members, lessons pertaining to non-hierarchical political organization and the care of  the land. In the age of Black Lives Matter this work makes the case for autonomous life-spaces free of US or Canadian state control.”
Michael Taussig, Class of 1933 Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, Columbia University, City of New York

“This book is a window into a world seldom glimpsed by Europeans and their settler descendants. Revealed to us is the inner vision of First  Nation liberation movements that emerged from forms of government within which group autonomy and individual freedom have been cherished for thousands of years. Despite inspiring the US Constitution, these confederacies were heavily repressed and forced underground. At the end of the 1960s, the Warrior Society was rekindled by seven original members who vowed to defend their people against state violence depriving them of their rights. Overnight, they were joined by hundreds throughout Mohawk lands, then thousands all over the Iroquois Confederacy, with supporters from the East Coast to the West Coast in  North and South America. The Warrior Society emerged within a broader cultural renaissance that imbued traditional matrilineal cultures with new vitality. As part of the global awakening of the 1960s, they were more popularly rooted than AIM or the Black Panthers. Their Great Law provides an ecological and democratic framework for peaceful coexistence of all peoples.”
—George Katsiaficas, author of The Subversion of Politics: European Autonomous Social Movements and the Decolonization of Everyday Life and The Global Imagination of 1968: Revolution and Counterrevolution

“This book takes the reader behind the masks of the Mohawk Warrior Society, exploring the deep roots of the controversial Indigenous movement that precipitated the 78-day standoff at Oka in 1990. Offering unprecedented oral histories, concept glossaries, and transcripts of internal documents, this auto-history presents the perspective of the Rotisken’rhakéte in their own words. All readers interested in contemporary Indigenous resistance to colonialism will find much of value in this unique compendium that goes beyond the well-known symbols to explain their origins and meaning.”
—Jon Parmenter, Associate Professor of History at Cornell University, and author of The Edge of the Woods: Iroquoia, 1534–1701

The Mohawk Warrior Society is an excellent collection of stories about colonialism and resistance in Turtle Island—a must read  for settler allies seeking to learn and unlearn the histories of colonial violence that structure our contemporary relations. In providing vital histories of state repression and Indigenous resilience, the teachings in this volume can inform all contemporary efforts working towards decolonialization.”
—Jeffrey Monaghan, Criminology and Criminal Justice, Carleton University, co-author of Policing Indigenous Movements: Dissent and the Security State

“I’ve been blessed because I came to know the Unity Flag by seeing Oka on TV when I was young. When I got married they wrapped us with the flag, it has been a part of all the spiritual ceremonies that I went to, it has been present at every blockade. Along with the Women’s Warrior Flag, it’s a symbol that’s embedded in our spirit, and it’s always been an inspiration. Louis Hall, Ganienkeh, and The Warrior’s Handbook were way ahead of their time, back when people were just starting to fight back, fighting to get their land back. The intention of The Warrior’s Handbook and Unity Flag was for all Indigenous nations throughout the hemisphere and really the whole world to unite, and first and foremost to fight. That’s why this book is so important, it’s something that Louis Hall has gifted to all red nations.
Kanahus Freedom Manuel, Indigenous land defender, Secwepemc Women Warrior Society, Tiny House Warriors

“This is a compelling account of the political struggle for the return of indigenous thought through the words of those Kaianerehkó:wa Mohawks affiliated with the original 1970s Warrior Society. It offers a trenchant and witty critique of settler colonialism together with a body of teachings aimed at re-establishing balance and harmony.  It is for the Kanien’kehá:ka, the indigenous peoples of Turtle Island, and all people troubled by the state of our relations to each other and to the beings of the land that make us as well as those who care for it.
—Eduardo Kohn, Associate Professor of Anthropology at McGill University, and author of How Forests Think

About the Contributors

Louis Karoniaktajeh Hall (1918–1993) was a prolific Kanien’kehá:a painter and writer from Kahnawake, whose work continues to inspire generations of indigenous people today. A man of all trades, Karoniaktajeh worked as a butcher, a carpenter, and a mason. Initially groomed for a life in the priesthood, Karoniaktajeh (on the edge of the sky) began his life as a devout Christian before later turning against what he saw as the fallacies of European religion, and deciding to reintegrate himself into the traditional Longhouse and help revive “the  old ways.” Appointed as the Secretary of the Ganienkeh Council Fire, he became a prominent defender of indigenous sovereignty, and was instrumental in the reconstitution of the Rotisken’rhakéhte (Mohawk Warrior Society). His distinctive artwork includes the iconic Unity Flag, which still symbolizes indigenous pride across Turtle Island (North America). His legacy as a revivor and innovator of traditional  Mohawk culture includes his works The Warrior’s Handbook (1979) and Rebuilding the Iroquois Confederacy (1980).  Both these texts, which served during their time as a political and cultural call to arms for indigenous communities across Turtle Island, were initially printed by hand and distributed in secret.

Kahentinetha Rotiskarewake is a Kanien’kehá:ka from the Bear Clan in Kahnawà:ke. Initially working in the fashion industry, Kahentinetha went on to play a key role as speaker and writer in the indigenous resistance, a role which she has fulfilled consistently for the last six decades. During this time she witnessed and took part in numerous struggles, including the blockade of the Akwesasne border crossing in 1968. She has published several books including Mohawk Warrior Three,  and has been in charge of running the Mohawk Nation News service since  the Oka Crisis in 1990. She now cares for her twenty children,  grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Kahentinetha means “she who is  always at the forefront.”

Philippe Blouin writes, translates, and studies political anthropology and philosophy in Tionni’tio’tià:kon (Montreal). His current PhD research at McGill University seeks to understand and share the teachings of the Tehiohate (Two Row Wampum) to build decolonial alliances. He has published essays in LiaisonsStasis, and an afterword to George Sorel’s Reflections on Violence.

Matt Peterson is an organizer at Woodbine, an experimental space in New York City. He is the co-director of The Native and the Refugee, a multi-media documentary project on American Indian reservations and Palestinian refugee camps.

Malek Rasamny co-directed the research project The Native and the Refugee and the feature film Spaces of Exception. He is currently a doctoral candidate in the department of Social Anthropology and Ethnology at the Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris.

MORE ACTION ON TURTLE ISLAND

MASS COLONIAL ALZHEIMERS

 

Please post & distribute.

MNN. Oct. 28, 2018. Invaders are suffering from mass colonial alzheimers, ia-te-tse-ni-kon-ra-io-ten. Their brain feeds on lies. The USA [United States of Alzheimers] is eating itself from the inside. The world is finding out about the horrors they inflicted on us and our mother. It will stop. Everything has to be made right. INFO BELOW ON GATHERING AT 6 NATIONS, NOV. 19-23:  https://mohawknationnews.com/blog/2018/10/04/gathering-6-nations-ohswekon-nov-19-23-2018/

“TO SURVIVE, WE MUST WORK COLLECTIVELY”. 

To save themselves, the corporate world will continue to lie and try to force everyone to fear them and continue to believe their lies. Natives know creation, our mother and nature are based on total truth of our past, present and future. The truth is coming out about the mass slaughter of almost all life on turtle island.

INDIANS! WHO & WHAT ARE THEY? IA-TE-HON-TSE-NI-KON-RA-IERI, THE INVADER’S BRAIN DON’T WORK. THEY CAN’T BELIEVE WE’RE STILL HERE! 

The few who know will ask what they can do to makes things right. The rest will pretend to or have alzheimers to avoid guilt, responsibility or even knowledge of their atrocities.      

tio-kwan-hok-sta is the circle of the families, the love that underlies native societies. All families are combined, to always work together, never to take up arms against each other and to survive together. te-kari-wa-ien-na-wakon means that we would link arms and always hold each other.

A gathering is happening in Oswego from November 19 to 23, 2018, to talk about our concerns on kanonshononni’onwe, the way of the people of the longhouse. Come with your thoughts, questions and ask for clarity. Your presence will make the agenda. 

The world is invited. Let us stand together to stop the injustice and untruth.

IENIKONRIIO, A NATURAL MIND.

Buffy Sainte Marie sings about counterbalancing environmental greed: “Got Mother Nature on a luncheon plate. They carve her up and call it real estate. Want all the resources and all of the land. They make a war over it; they blow things up for it. ”

50 YEARS SINCE CORNWALL BRIDGE BLOCKADE

 

Please post & distribute. 

MNN. Oct. 21, 2018. For over 50 years this National Film Board documentary film was seen by millions of people around the world. Participants regularly get comments on the blockade of the International Bridge at Akwessne. It is one of the most important milestones in which natives made a definite statement to the world and governments that we have special rights and that the Canada-U.S border does not exist for natives people. The Jay Treaty of 1794 was for the intruders only. The treaty between the British and Americans has withstood many legal challenges by governments in the United States and Canada. It affirms our natural rights as the original peoples of turtle island. 

It is an international treaty between foreign nations with a provision [Article III] respecting our natural freedom and right to live freely on our land where creation placed us without any hindrance. 

All natives benefitted from this action by kanionkehaka/Mohawks who stood at the Customs House on that cold day on December 20, 1968. 

The rotinoshonni’onwe Iroquois have a long history of making such statements to the world. Annually in Niagara Falls the natives have marched across the Niagara River since the 1920s to remind them of our free passage and their borders do not apply to us.

Another history making event was when Paul K. Diabo of kahnawake, an ironworker, was ordered by the American government to be deported to Canada as an alien. The Supreme Court of the United States upheld the rights of natives to cross freely between Canada and the United States without hindrance or molestation. 

In 1968 the world saw a small group of Mohawks and other natives make a declaration that we are not going to allow anyone to interfere with our natural rights.  

This commemoration at Concordia University is a significant event. Everyone is welcome.  

THIS FILM AND OTHERS WILL BE SHOWN: CINEMA POLITICA NETWORK, “YOU ARE ON INDIAN LAND”, 1455 de Maisonneuve, Hall Building, Montreal, Quebec. Monday, Oct. 22nd 2018. Arrive at 6.30 pm. 37 mins. followed by open discussion.

TRIBUTE TO MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN, FRIENDS & ALLIES

 

Please post & distribute. 

MNN. JULY 14, 2018. Yes, in 1990 we unwrapped the corporate ropes from our necks! “On July 11th 1990, the Surete du Quebec [Quebec Provincial Police] opened fire with automatic guns and tear gas on kahnienkehaka [Mohawk] men, women and children. The Mohawks had been protesting the town of Oka’s plans to expand a golf course over a burial ground and common native land called The Pines kanehsaktake. Nearby Mohawks of kahnawake responded very quickly to fellow Mohawks of kanehsatake by blocking the Mercier Bridge, which connects the southshore to the island of Montreal. 

TURTLE ISLAND WILL ALWAYS BE THE HOMELAND OF THE ONKWEHONWEH!

“The world watched in amazement while a small nation faced the combined fire power of the Canadian Armed Forces, the SQ and the Royal Mounted Police.

“It was a fight for Mohawk identity and land against the oppressive designs of a modern nation state. The stand off after 78 days came to an end.

“The Quebec and Canadian governments maintained to the end their position that the Mohawk defenders were criminals and terrorists who threatened the public security of all. Out of this perspective Canada and Quebec quickly brought Mohawks defenders to trial on criminal charges. 

“The first trial is the subject of this book, which starkly shows the continuing conflicts in perspectives between the Mohawk people and the Canadian and Quebec governments. The Mohawks transcended the boundaries set up by Quebec and Canada under a European nation-state model. 

“Lasagna, from kahnawake, Noriega and 20-20, from akwesasne, were caught up in the events with their people in kanehsatake/Oka. The three were ordinary Mohawk men who found themselves in the middle of a fight for identity, recognition and a war against oppression by the Canadian and Quebec governments. They maintained their silence throughout the trial, a statement of their non-compliance with the use of coercion, threats and force of arms against the Mohawk Nation. . . . .

TODAY AND TOMORROW, JULY 14 AND 15, A POW WOW IS HAPPENING ON THIS VERY LAND TO REMIND US OF SOME OF OUR PAST STORMS:

 

 

‘OUR’ MOTHER. ‘OUR’ HOME.

 

Please post & distribute.

MNN. MAY 17, 2018. The invaders arrived here on turtle island, mass murdered us, forced us survivors to live on the back corner of our mother earth to die off. For 500 years the invaders beat our mother almost to death, drain her, poison her, rip apart her insides, deface her.  The invaders are ordering us to not care about or love our mother. No one can stop us from loving our mother. We will never give permission to anyone to rape, pillage or kill her. 

‘DEATH’ DANCE OF INVADERS AND TRAITORS ON ‘LIVE’ STREAM!

She is onowarekeh, turtle island. She lives in the most natural way according to creation and to care for her children. She is the mother of the onkwehonweh, the true original people of this part of the world, north, south and beyond. Across the waters are the mothers of the invaders who are waiting for their children to return to them so she can teach them some manners.

They feel no guilt for their devastation of all life, which is a betrayal of nature. The invaders think they can only ‘win’ if they eliminate those they think are “weak” or not buying into their treachery. They ruthlessly beat and berate those who question, criticize or resist them. We are constantly reminded that we are on their “final solution to the Indian problem” list since 1492. 

MOUSSELINI: TRAITORS GONE – 

 

These immigrant murderers know they can do nothing without our knowledge and consent as creation designed. We cannot and will never sell our mother. 

Their well paid Indian rats and snitches known as federal, national, provincial, territorial and band/tribal councils collaborate with our corrupt and deadly enemy. They gleefully help the corporate criminals make real estate deals for turtle island and carry out the genocide. Assembly of First Nations is a ‘stroke-me-rub-my-back-gimme-that-paper-to-sign fest’.  

THOSE ROTISKENRAKETEH CAN GET MEAN TO SELL-OUTS. 

We will not break our ties with our mother.  We will not make blood oaths to their distant mother, queenie.   

ia-ne-wenton te te-iont te-kwat-ka-wen tsi te-wa-na-keri nene-ion-kwa-no-tion-ne onwe.  

sa-wen-sios take into your mind the message of the kaianerekowa. Everything worldwide will be made right according to creation. We will continue to care for our mother. We only have one. 

The invaders and their puppets have no right to talk to anyone about anything below, on, above turtle island. Only to us, the true original people placed on turtle island by creation.  As Foster the People sing: “Walk little walk. Small talk big thoughts. Gonna tell them all just what I want. That street two streets I see you and me, Hanging on the empty swings. ‘Count high low don’t worry my eyes are closed. I’m a superman and it’s my show. One shoe two gonna kick with my new shoes. I’m going to kick until I need new shoes. Yeah, yeah I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop Talking to me, stop don’t stop don’t stop . . .” [Don’t Stop].

TWISTED GIT-GIT COMING HOME TO ROOST

 

Please post & distribute.

MNN. May 3, 2018. Bad deeds always come back to destroy the perpetrator. The invaders mass murdered us. This curse hangs around their necks.  

THE CORPORATE GIT-GIT HAVE NO PLACE TO GO.

The white serpent is squeezing us so tight we can hardly breathe. The AFN meeting in Hull on May 1 shows that the hypocrisy and vengeance of 500 years continues. It will stop now! The colonizers will try to create more rules, laws and prisons to kill us and surround us with their privately owned courts. 

The Assembly of First Nations AFN helps their masters implement the “final solution to the Indian problem”. The corporation of Canada gives AFN the weapons of mass destruction called “Bill this-or-that”. The main armament is our money. The orders are for the execution of our people.   

Our young people are raped and killed. Our children are kidnapped and thrown in the prisons.

TEHOIENWAKON. WE ARE OF OUR MOTHER.

Treaties are nothing. They are not our protection. The invaders sued for treaties for their own protection. They came to us, tewatatawi, for the right to stay on turtle island. They broke every agreement. When an international agreement between nations is broken, everything reverts to one day before the agreement was ratified. turtle island is the land of the original people. Now the colonizers lie and say they have rights. They have nothing. They must leave so we the natural people can be free as birds. The settlers mindset is, “I will fight you for my house!”  

Canada and US are not sovereign without our land and their own inherent languages. [Montevideo Convention 1932]. We have our languages and our land as creation intended. Their delusion is to rid the world of hundreds of millions of native people, steal all our land, rewrite the history so they get away with the crime. In Canada the plan to force us to become artificial citizens. The AFN helps the colonists to fraudulently hold our land so the London bankers can fleece the people even more. Duncan Campbell Scott said in his ‘100 year plan’ that in the 9th decade the Indians will voluntarily pay taxes!      

KWES-KWES INVADERS & THEIR PIGLETS GOBBLE UP OUR DISH! OINK! OINK!

These house Indians love their master more then themselves. The tehoienwakon will stand until they win.  

Sam Cooke sings about the pain inflicted on us by our own brothers and sisters who pose as our people but have given up their birthright: “I was born by the river in a little tent. Oh, and just like the river I’ve been running ever since. It’s been a long, a long time coming But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes it will. It’s been too hard living, but I’m afraid to die ‘Cause I don’t know what’s up there beyond the sky. It’s been a long, a long time coming, But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes it will“. [A change is gonna come].
