MNN. Sept. 26, 2022. The judgement was rendered on September 20, 2022 by Judge Gregory Moore of the Quebec Superior Court 500-17-120-468-221 Kahentinetha et al. v. Societe des infrastructure et al. concerning the right of kahnistensera Mohawk Mothers to represent themselves in court without an attorney. This judgment acknowledges that they have a right to follow the kaianerekowa.
Early in September, a purple haze of smoke ascended over the colonial cross on top of tekanontak (Mount-Royal), at the heart of Tiotiake (Montreal). Kanien’kehà:ka oral tradition says that smoke signals sent by their ancestors on tekanontak used to be picked up in the Adirondaks, making its way down the East Coast with surprising rapidity. Our signal today calls on people across Turtle Island to “open their minds and think how to help” so that these issues do not become white noise.
Tekanontak is at the heart of a colonial dispute. In their press conference of July 27th the Mohawk Mothers detailed their legal struggle to stop the construction of McGill University’s New Vic project. The risks are damaging multiple archeological sites of Rotinonshionni presence on the island of Montreal and throughout onowarekeh, turtle island, and destroying evidence of unmarked graves from the Mk-ultra experiments on indigenous children, orphans and innocent children classed as juvenile delinquents.
Contrary to colonial history’s cover ups, the smoke signaled that it is time to make things right! Mainly to do away with the religious symbols of the atrocities committed on Indigenous peoples ever since the Europeans grabbed Turtle Island. *** To stand firm with the Mohawk Mothers, we call on all solidarity groups to join in action to end the cycle of unquestioned ways of doing.
The Mohawk Mothers have filed an interlocutory injunction to “stop excavation of unmarked graves of children and disturbance of archeological remains of kahnienkehaka/Mohawks on tekanontak [Mount Royal Montreal]”. Regardless of the upcoming hearing on 26th October to address the unmarked graves on the grounds of the Royal Victoria Hospital, McGill and the Société Québécoise des Infrastructures announced that they will start excavating work in early October.
Unmarked Indigenous Graves on McGill Campus https://canada.detailzero.com/news/amp/47970 The Weeks take place on the sidelines of the long legal battle waged by the Kanien’kehaka Kahnistensera (Mohawk Mothers) against McGill University’s New Vic project on the site of the former Royal Victoria Hospital. In this lawsuit against McGill, the City of Montreal, the Attorney General of Canada and the Société québécoise des infrastructures, the Mohawk Mothers seek an interlocutory injunction to stop the construction of the project because of suspicions ” that the site contains unmarked graves of indigenous children (tdlr) “, they express in a statement of September 17th.

MNN. Sept. 24, 2022. RON-WANA-SETON [they make the people disappear in mass graves] MEMORIAL DAY.
RON-WANA-SETON MEMORIAL DAY IS GETTING CLOSER
OCTOBER 25, 1924 IS THE NINETY-EIGHTH ANNIVERSARY of the implementation by Canada of the holocaust laws known as the “Indian Lands Act” of each province. Canada gave indigenous resources to the provinces. The indigenous people were forced onto fenced in concentration camps called “reservations”. The Indian Lands Act is a 100 years business plan to rid Canada of indigenous people so the invaders can take onowarekeh, turtle island, for free and to be rid of the original people.
On October 25th 1924 the RCMP and the military put indigenous families in fenced in concentration camps. Today every reservation in Canada is still a concentration camp run by the band councils for the government.
In the October 25, 1924 ron-wana-seton action, the indigenous people were all ages, many babies and some not even born yet. Many ran away who were disenfranchised and no longer ‘Indian’. The army snatched the children and put them into the residential schools to extinguish them. They were not allowed to leave the camps without a pass. Military permission was needed to do everything. If a child missed three days of school, they were classed as “juvenile delinquents” and removed by the truant officers. The parents were threatened with going to jail and loss of their children. The onkwehonwe indigenous houses that were taken were given to the white settlers for free.
On October 25, 2022, the people and supporters will stand for one minute of silence for the 98th anniversary of the Canadian Indian reservation ron-wana-seton system which is still upon us to this day. They tried to sever their connection to the earth. The indigenous continue to belong to their mother, the earth.
Everyone in Canada will stand up on “The Canadian Reservation ron-wana-seton System Memorial Day” to remember the murdered indigenous people across turtle island at 11:11 A.M for one minute of silence. The dead children and murdered people who cannot stand on that day will be honored. Many died at McGill or they would have come home.
Grand Funk sings for these children that wanted to get home: “Everybody, listen to me and return my ship. I am your captain. I am your captain. Though I am feeling mighty sick. I have been lost now days uncounted and it’s months since I”ve been home. Can you hear me or am I all alone? If you are returning me to my home port I will kiss mother earth. Take me back now to the port of my birth. I am in my cabin dreaming or are you really scheming to take my ship away from me? You better think about it. I just can’t live without it. So please don’t take my ship from me”.
Judge Rules Mohawk Mothers can Speak for themselves according to their own culture. READ PRESS RELEASE
kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera (Mohawk Mothers) Kahnawake firstname.lastname@example.org PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLICATION Judge Rules that Mohawk Mothers Can Represent Themselves According to their Own Culture. On September 20th, 2022 at the Superior Court in Montreal, Justice Gregory Moore ruled that the Mohawk Mothers (kanien’keha:ka kahnistensera) can represent themselves, dismissing Quebec’s motion to make them get a lawyer. His judgement acknowledged that it is contrary to Mohawk culture to be represented. The Attorney General of Quebec and the Société Québécoise des infrastructures (SQI) are leading this case to stop the Mohawk Mothers from getting an injunction to block McGill’s New Vic project. The case will be heard on October 26th . The September 20th case management hearing also addressed the intervention of the Independent Special Interlocutor on unmarked graves, Kimberly Murray, who was appointed by the Federal government last June. Murray has experience at the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the searches for unmarked graves at the Mohawk Institute in Brantford, Ontario. The Special Interlocutor asked the court’s permission to join the case to provide her expertise and file evidence. However, the defendants the Attorney General of Quebec and the SQI opposed her intervention for “conservatory purposes”, impeding her from filing new evidence and historical context. At stake is Quebec’s non-compliance with Federal commitments to facilitate independent investigations of the genocide of Indigenous peoples in Canada. The guilt of genocide has been acknowledged by Pope Francis last July. For procedural reasons, the defendants also want to strike most of the evidence filed by the plaintiffs. Excavation work on the New Vic project is set to start in October 2022, before the hearing on the injunction on October 26th. The Mohawk Mothers want to halt the project to investigate the unmarked graves of victims of medical experiments as alleged by survivors. The Mohawk Mothers are concerned that human remains, forensic evidence and precolonial artifacts will be destroyed. The archeological film Arkéos affirmed the likelihood of finding these on site. McGill declined the Mohawk Mothers’ invitation to have out of court negotiations, while the SQI cancelled an informal meeting between them and Arkéos. The Mohawk Mothers were planning to request that special care be taken to stop any destruction of unmarked graves, using Ground Penetrant Radar, bioarchaeologists and cadaver dogs. The Mohawk Mothers also ask that Quebec’s Cultural Heritage Act be declared unconstitutional as it ignores any consultation with Indigenous peoples. “This law only specifies that they have to sent a notice to the Band Council, who don’t inform our people and who are agents of the Federal government“, said a Mohawk Mother. “It seems that they can legally bulldoze the bodies of our children, cover it up and no questions asked”, she said. By contrast with other provinces like British Columbia where the free, prior and informed consent of Indigenous peoples is required to excavate archaeological sites, Quebec’s Cultural Heritage Act treats Indigenous heritage as a property of the province. The Mohawk Mothers insist that the Royal Victoria Hospital is a crime scene and that forensic evidence must be protected throughout the site. Medical experimentation on mind control, brainwashing and torture techniques was rampant in the 1950s and 1960s. The testimonies and 141 exhibits filed by the Mohawk Mothers on August 26th show that Indigenous children were buried there after being used as guinea pigs in psychiatric experiments. Their research team discovered archival records showing ominous connexions between the Canadian Army’s cold-war deportation of Inuit children, the treatment of Indigenous children labeled as “juvenile delinquents” in residential schools and reform schools, and the CIA’s MK-Ultra program on mind control. This program was run by Dr. Ewen Cameron at the Allan Memorial Institute, which is part of the Royal Victoria Hospital and McGill University. The families of non-Indigenous survivors of the Mk-Ultra experiments are also in a legal battle for reparations. They wrote a letter to the Mayor of Montreal Valérie Plante to ask her to halt the excavation at the Royal Victoria Hospital. For the Mohawk Mothers, however, negotiations are at a stalemate as excavation work soon approaches. The Attorney General of Quebec served intrusive cross-interrogation questions to Kahentinetha, which bore no relation to her testimony. Quebec fears the Mohawk Mothers’ demand for a permanent injunction declaring Tekanontak (Mount Royal) an unceded and inalienable traditional territory of the kanien’keha:ka people. Their demands include removing the cross from the top of Tekanontak, which is a symbol of the atrocities committed against their people.

MNN. Sept. 20, 2022. Fifty-seven inane questions were served on the Mohawk Mothers which did not concern the case of the unmarked graves and bodies of thousands of indigenous and other children. McGill University and its affiliates conducted mind control, brainwashing and torture techniques on these children. [Quebec Superior Court 500-17-120-468-221] kahentinetha et al. v. Societe des infrastructure et al.] The Mohawk Mothers are in Quebec Superior Court demanding to know what happened to these children.
An odd turn of events is that the Attorney General of Quebec, who is suppose to be an impartial third party on behalf of all people of Quebec, is now leading the case against the Mohawk Mothers. He entered a motion to block the inclusion of evidence from the independant Special Interlocutor of Unmarked Graves that was appointed by the Canadian government to basically make sure that the case is run ethically for both sides. Canada created this special position to help all involved parties to investigate unmarked grave throughout Canada. The Special Interlocateur has entered the case as a Friend of the Court but cannot file evidence. We want all of the truth to be revealed.
The following 57 questions from the defendant are hereby reproduced. The respondents asked no questions about the main reason for the court case, the murdered children:
It’s almost like Bruce Springsteen was singing about the 57 questions the defendants sent for the Mohawk Mothers to answer: [57 Channels and Nothing on]
I bought a bourgeois house in the Hollywood hills. With a truckload of hundred thousand dollar bills. Man came by to hook up my cable TV. We settled in for the night my baby and me. We switched ’round and ’round ’til half-past dawn. There was fifty-seven channels and nothin’ on.
In traditional Kanien’kéha:ka (Mohawk) society, the Kahnistensera (mothers) play a crucial role in political life, social governance, and land stewardship. The Kahnistensera Mohawk Mothers of Kahnawake are guided by this tradition, rooted in the Kaianerehkowa (the Great Peace), to seek justice for the people of Kahnawake and other Indigenous people whose lands, bodies, and cultures have been harmed by Canadian settler colonialism.
Kanienkehak land at the foot of Tekanonkak (Mount Royal, Montreal) is currently targeted for the construction of McGill University’s “New Vic” project on the site of the former Royal Victoria Hospital, without the permission of the indigenous land owners. However, McGill is on unceded Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) territory, and built with funds borrowed from the Rotino’shonni:onwe (Iroquois) Trust Fund, which were never repaid. Furthermore, evidence suggests that the site contains remains of pre-colonial Iroquois villages, as well as the unmarked graves of Indigenous children who were experimented on at the Allan Memorial Institute in the 1950s and 60s as part of the CIA-funded MK ULTRA “mind control” experiments.
In response to this persistent injustice, the Kahnistensera are mobilizing within their own community and with settler allies to advocate for their rights and title. They are joined by a research committee investigating McGill’s history of medical experimentation and its expropriation of Indigenous funds.
Finally, the Kahnistensera are taking McGill, the Société Québécoise des Infrastructures, the Attorney General of Canada and the City of Montreal to court for an injunction to stop the construction project and avoid the destruction of the gravesites. The hearing is scheduled for October 26th, 2022, but McGill University announced that they will proceed with excavation work in the vicinity of the alleged graves before the hearing. If nothing is done, the graves and forensic evidence could be destroyed, causing irreparable harm and profound disrespect to Indigenous communities and the spirits of the children buried at the site.
This struggle has already generated significant attention in Canada and garnered support from thousands of people. The Kahnistensera are now seeking your support to help with legal, research, and administrative costs. They are self-represented in court, refusing to be represented by lawyers who abide by non-Indigenous laws. Speaking the truth about the unmarked graves, treating the burial sites with respect and protecting forensic evidence of medical crimes are essential parts of the reconciliation process. Reconciliation is incomplete, however, without the repatriation of unceded lands. The Kahnistensera’s work is an important step toward restoring Kanien’kehá:ka title and addressing the ongoing legacy of settler colonialism in Canada.
By empowering Kanien’kéha:ka women as decision-makers and stewards of the land, you can help rebuild grassroots communities that is directly linked to Kanien’kehá:ka culture that educates and mobilizes the wider public around the continuing strength of Kanien’kéha:ka ways.

The Queen is the main mask of the Crown as head of the Company/corporation called “Canada’, a Mohawk word for “squatters”. She is the major shareholder of the Crown based in the VatIcan which has false claims to own our mother, the earth. All mainstream media of the “Five Eyes” is through the Queen’s intelligence service MI5, “operation mockingbird”. We saw classy Meghan professionally take down the British aristocratic amateurs of “the firm”. Meghan gave the Nazi House of Windsor a good beating.

When that happens, all her corporate assets – Canada, US, Australia and New Zealand – will revert to the true natural owners placed by creation. The “Crown” based in the Vatican and all their banking tentacles throughout the world will fall. The Pope is the Emperor of Rome. Everyone who takes an oath to a criminal is a criminal. They will be dealt with.
Queen: “No. We won’t trade jobs. Mine is to kill & pillage. Yours is to pacify & salt away the money!”
The Kaianerekowa will then be applied on Great Turtle Island. The Onkwehonwe will deal with the “masters of war” using our law and new technology, to make them clean up their mess. These criminals will answer to the people for each one of the over 100 million Indigenous they murdered here.
The oligarchy teaches that whoever has the most money makes the rules. The revolution has begun in each person’s mind. We are each sovereign in our own mind. Anyone can tell us what they think, not what to think. The spiritual frequency changes that will occur on our Mother Earth will cause everyone to remember everything from every past life. We’re not sure who said this:
The waters of truth will clean everything. The oligarchy will be washed away. Once the earth begins her cleansing, there will be no more lies, murder or destruction.
We Onkwehonwe were to teach them to love and take care of each other and every living thing attached to the earth in our communities. The weapons of war will be buried under the Tree of Peace for all time.
The Black Wampum will be applied to all the criminals.
The black wampum hits the floor. Then the warrior smashes the criminal’s head, tehonwatisokwariton, to smash out evil from the brain where it starts. The reason that the head is emptied to the ground is because that is where the evil exists and will be purified by the earth.
They will have one last chance to become of one mind with us. When the War Chief drops the black wampum they can grab it before it hits the floor. If they do not grasp it, the men will bash in their heads with war clubs. Their brains will be on the floor next to the black wampum. This will happen in all Great Turtle Island communities. Genocide has always been their plan for us. The DNA memory of those who did the genocide will be erased from mankind. They and their weapons will be buried, never to be seen again.
Elizabeth and Francis will be the last Monarch and the last Pope. Good riddance!
As Johnny Cash foretold, the oligarchs will be cast into a burning ring of fire, and they will go down, down, down, and the flames will shoot higher. And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire! Johnny Cash. “Ring of Fire”.

This is an open letter to Parliament, the provincial legislatures and their institutions to help indigenous people’s efforts to obtain justice and for the courts to respect indigenous traditions.
MNN. Sep. 6, 2022. The indigenous and officials of McGill knew the indigenous children were being experimented on at McGill University’s Allen Memorial Institute. It appears the bodies were hidden so they could never be found. The indigenous always wondered what happened to their children. McGill owes all indigenous people an explanation. It is time to remedy that. All graves must be found rather than more structures being built over them to hide them. Out West, the dead children were found buried in the concrete foundations. Many children are still out there somewhere. All of turtle island is soaked in the blood of the indigenous people.
It is almost certain they are buried in the grounds of McGill University because it was known officially that these children were being experimented on and disposed of. As McGill and the Canadian government headed up those experimental projects they have to know what happened to those bodies. If they are not there, where are they? There are 88 children reported missing after being institutionalized in Quebec. Where are they? The Pope said, “Yes, it is genocide”. Hiding this is causing another crime, obstruction of justice. From the 1950s to the 1970s the indigenous were treated like outcasts and then forgotten.
Since finding thousands of unmarked graves of indigenous children near Canadian government Indian Residential Schools, the Prime Minister has said that they all have to be found. Instead Quebec and McGill University are in the process of beginning excavation of one of the sites next to the Allan Memorial Hospital in October 2022 to start construction of the Royal Vic renovation of Mount Royal Montreal. It looks like a cover up. It is shocking that they continue to proceed. The kahnistensera Mohawk Mothers are filing for an interlocutory injunction in the Quebec Superior Court on October 26 to stop this atrocity which is the earliest date they could get. The Members of Parliament will be asked to use their authority to stop this so that there can be an investigation of this area, to force McGill and Quebec government [SQI] to look for these unmarked graves.
Why doesn’t the government allow the indigenous to have the medical records on the victims and on the medical experiments carried out by MKUltra, the CIA, the Army and the Canadian and United States governments? Why are they being withheld? What is being hidden? Their refusal to release the files creates suspicion. No indigenous people gave permission for McGill University or anyone to take their children away, experiment on them, then dispose of them and secretly bury them. Why is this declared to be ‘top secret’? The people who propagated the crime are the same people that decide which information is “secret” or “top secret”. In effect their refusal proves the indigenous are right. What could be so secret? They had to meticulously know, proving the obstruction was planned, and to continue to conceal the crime. They know of the deaths of these children, and how they ordered the disposal of their bodies. Or there are no buried children, then they know that they were buried somewhere else or not! The perpetrators should be providing all the resources to help the search. No crime could be more horrific than what happened to these children. Possibly they know exactly where they are buried. Could they have and are still destroying all the evidence, like pulverizing little children’s bones? If McGill is saying there are no children there, what facts are they relying on? Somebody knows where those children are. They have to keep extensive records. Murdering the children went to the top echelons of power as they were federal programs. MKUltra and other horrific psychiatric experiments including lobotomies were heavily funded by the Canadian government.
Has McGill dug up the grounds? Is it possible that they don’t know anything and just learning about it now? They can let the families know where these graves are and at least not interfere with indigenous efforts to seek the truth and recover their murdered family members. Millions of our people are gone. The dead children will find their way home. Every Member of Parliament can demand that nothing can be built until every child is accounted for. There are people alive today who know where they are. They say nothing because they don’t want to be implicated in the crime.
The question is will the governments of Canada and Quebec stop the genocide by exposing all the evidence about federally funded medical experiments performed on indigenous and Canadians during the cold war.
McGill University claims to be an expert at everything they do. Like the “Mule Skinner”, it won’t happen the way they think it will. As Jimmie Rodgers explains, the cards could start to fall.
Well, good morning, captain Good morning to you, sir Hey, hey, yeah
Do you need another mule skinner Down on your new mud run? Hey, hey, yeah
Well, I’m a lady mule skinner From down old Tennessee way Hey, hey, I come from Tennessee
There were misinterpretations of this post. It has been edited to highlight that it is male supremacy that is being criticided. Male supremacy offends all genders. “You guys” must reckon with the power of the women!
MNN. Sep. 3, 2022. Calling everybody “you guys” is disrespectful, offensive and discriminatory. It invisibilizes the specific powers of the kahnistensera and flattens the spectrum of genders as only male. It is indoctrination to attack gender ideology of the natural world. Schools are now indoctrination centers that teach supremacy of males , not education centers. This destroys our culture from within. Schools are government agencies. Bad schools. Bad government. Bad education. The genocide of the original people is not being taught. The killers are not being exposed for the holocaust of indigenous people they committed. Elites say, “Bend the twig” to make the people obedient and unquestioning – no more “Why?” and “Can you prove it?” which we are taught to ask of everything. Boredom sets in as man-made unreality goes against the natural world.
Neutralization is by those who control media to support the fascist illusion that has been imposed on us. See “Giants. Who Really Rules the World? ” by Peter Phillips. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUGh1Su7-ok The world is run by 300 billionaires who own all the banks. They bribe presidents, parliamentarians, governors, senators, congress, who have a lot to sell.
Canada cannot exist without its foreign masters. The term “You guys” is part of gender laws to curb freedom of speech. Everybody is trained to say it. Some object, “Hey, i am a woman. Stop calling me a guy, girlie.”
As Goebbels, Hitler’s top propagandist, said,”If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
The top propagandists are politicians who practically wear lapels showing who sponsors them. In the meantime women are going along with being classed as second class “guys” and have ended up by eliminating their own gender.
Press release, August 31, 2022 *********************************
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE******************************
MNN. 31 August 2022. The kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera (Mohawk Mothers) were in Montreal court on August 31, 2022, and continue to represent themselves. The defendants want them to have a lawyer to stop them from seeking an interlocutory injunction to halt upcoming excavation and construction work on the sites of the ex-Royal Victoria Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute projects of the Société Québécoise des infrastructures (Quebec government SQI) and McGill University, McGill University Health Center, City of Montreal, Attorney General of Canada and the impleaded Attorney General of Quebec. Phew!
On August 26th, 2022, the kahnistensera filed three sworn statements supported by 141 exhibits, suggesting that there is a high possibility that the site contains unmarked graves of Indigenous children used as test subjects for psychiatric experiments funded by the CIA, the Canadian and American armies and governments, and the Rockefeller Foundation. The affidavits containing the evidence are available at the link https://mohawknationnews.com/blog/2022/08/27/mohawk-mothers-file-case-aug-25- 22/
The hearing for the interlocutory injunction to stop the excavation is set for October 26th, 2022. In the meantime McGill University and the SQI announced that they would be going ahead with excavation beforehand, to the south of the Hersey pavilion of the ex-Royal Victoria Hospital. The kahnistensera are very concerned that human remains, forensic evidence and archeological artifacts of their ancestors being destroyed by this excavation work. In effect, the Royal Victoria Hospital Archaeological study conducted in November 2016 by the Arkéos Inc. , commissioned by McGill University, determined that this excavation zone had archeological potential. Arkeos recommended an archeological inventory before disturbing the land. So far no precautions will be taken to respect Arkéos’s non-binding recommendation to protect Indigenous heritage.
The kahnistensera requested an out of court meeting with McGill University and the SQI, to allow this non-invasive and non-damaging work, with no response. During the August 31 hearing the kahnistensera filed a letter informing all parties of their proposal to investigate the grounds in September. There will be a search using Ground Penetrant Radar in the threatened area.
Given Arkeos contention of potential findings in the zone, they recommend that an archeological inventory be done by experts selected, directed, and monitored by the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera before any excavation work, and at the cost of the corporations responsible for the excavation. Archeologists and international experts have offered to help and guide in the use of technologies to assess the presence of graves without breaking the ground.
The kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera refuse to allow the desecration of the remains of their ancestors and relatives who were victims of medical experiments. The Mayor of Montreal, Valérie Plante, McGill University and the SQI have all publicly announced that they would collaborate with an investigation if there was a possibility that the grounds contain human remains.
The testimonies and evidence filed by the Mohawk Mothers corroborate their grimmest suspicions.
The court is reminded that there is no surrender of turtle island from the kanienkehaka [Mohawk] ever. So That makes this whole court act moot. But the kahnistensera keep on shuffling their moccasins to the drum beat of “World on Fire” sung by Sarah McLaughlan and Robbie Robertson:
Hearts are worn in these dark ages You’re not alone in this story’s pages The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying And I’ll try to hold it in, yeah I’ll try to hold it in The world is on fire, it’s more than I can handle I’ll tap into the water, try to bring my share I’ll try to bring more, more than I can handle Bring it to the table, bring what I am able I watch the heavens but I find no calling Something I can do to change what’s comin’ Stay close to me while the sky is falling I don’t wanna be left alone, don’t wanna be alone
