MNN. Mar. 14, 2013. Bankers and their accomplices have “Windigo Psychosis”. It’s an insatiable craving for everything in their sight. The Indigenous say Windigo becomes a wild-eyed, violent, flesh-eating maniac with super-human strength. They haunt Northern Alberta where they go on cannibalistic rampages. wendigo

The Windigo is sick because it’s cut off from its roots. It’s a ghost with a heart of ice. It eats everything in sight. Its hunger knows no bounds. When there is nothing left to eat, it starves to death.  When it sees something, it wants to own it. No one else can have anything. This illness feeds on a spiritual void. Canada and US are presently in an advanced stage of the “Windigo Psychosis”.  The Mohawks call it the “Owistah” disease. 

The riches of Great Turtle Island and its people triggered the psychosis in the strangers who came to our lands. They committed genocide of our people driven by the Windigo psychosis. They were unchained from the morality of human feeling.

The hunger is insatiable.

The sickening hunger is insatiable.


The Windigos continue to attack our people and our environment. They relentlessly destroy our vast territories, forests and wetlands. They crave ‘bitumen’, a tar like substance that is turned into oil through an energy intensive process that causes incredible environmental damage. It will pollute the Athabaska River, fill the air with toxins, and farmlands will be wasted. Large boreal forests will be clear-cut. They want rare cancers and other diseases to kill us and breakdown our society to get rid of us. 

A Wendigo made blight.

A Wendigo-made blight.

Windigo driven Enbridge Gas is trying to enlarge the tar sands development by 30% by building a 1,170-mile pipeline from Alberta to British Columbia. The Rocky Mountains and 1,000 rivers and streams will be crossed and destroyed. Over 200 tankers will enter our inland waters each year. 

Canada and Alberta pays no attention to international commitments to cut green house gas emissions. Shareholders must withdraw their investments. 

"Quick. Get another log!"

“Quick. Get another log!”

In the myths the Windigos have to be executed, buried and their graves covered with a large pile of logs. Joni Mitchell says:God must be a boogie man “Blind rage to kill, why’d he let them talk him down to cheap work and cheap thrills. In the plan, oh, the insulting plan. God must have been a Boogie Man”.

The Immortal Red-X says, “Joni, so it seems”.

Letter to Enbridge

Women Title Holders of the Rotinonhsonnion:October 11, 2006


Phil Mannell, General Manager, Enbridge Gas,
Central Region, 498 Markland St., Unit #1,
Markham, ON L6C 1Z6



Further to your letter of September 29th 2006, our concerns were very well explained to you in the DEMAND OF THE WOMEN TITLE HOLDERS OF ROTINONHSONNION:WE/SIX NATIONS TO ENBRIDGE GAS DISTRBUTION INC. OF BARRIE ONTARIO TO CEASE AND DESIST THE BUILDING OF A NATURAL GAS PIPELINE UNDER THE PINE RIVER IN HORNING’S MILLS ON THE HALDIMAND TRACT. We sent this and the “Mohawk Manifesto” to you on September 13, 2006.

We own this land. You did not consult the Women Title Holders who are the legal trustees of this land. You have no right to exploit our land. You did not get our permission and never will to put a gas pipeline under the Pine River.

You are trespassing. According to the Haldimand Proclamation of 1784 this land is for the “Mohawks and their posterity forever”. This position has not changed.

Your Open House Public Meeting or “Hot Dog Party” at the Horning’s Mills Community Center on May 30, 2006 does not qualify as consultation with the Indigenous landowners. None of those people attending have title to our land. They are all squatters except for one Mohawk who was there to see what you were up to.

At that Hot Dog Party, Thahoketoteh, a Kanion’ke:haka who lives in Horning’s Mills, asked your employee about the pollution. He smugly told us we’ll “just have to eat that”. A few weeks later Thahoketoteh told Grant Kilpatrick about the pollution problem in the river. He said that Enbridge had all the approvals, including from the Ministry of the Environment. Send us immediately a copy of your environmental approval.

Your plans, permits, orders and consents are all illegal. Your further destruction of the Pine River is a crime against our future children. Your plan to earn revenue supplying gas to people who are squatting on our land constitutes fraud and theft.

The Pine River is already in bad shape and needs cleaning. We plan to do that. Why don’t you re-read our Objection and the Mohawk Manifesto so you can stop trespassing and ruining our land.

You’ve given us a deadline of October 7th 2006 to answer you. This is our deadline to you! Get off our land immediately!! Take your mess with you! And don’t come back!
