1701 GREAT PEACE OF MONTREAL
MNN. 27 June 2012. The Great Peace of Montreal was completed on June 25th 1701. It is the treaty that established the invaders’ right to live here. Canadian history omits it.
The French sued for peace to end their 92-year war with us, called the French and Indian wars.
This treaty legitimized their presence on Great Turtle Island. All immigrants agreed to live according to the Kaianerekowa, the Great Law of Peace, through the Guswentha, the Two Row Wampum. They would stay on their boat, not interfere with us, live in perpetual peace and could never own any of our territory.
Our younger brothers agreed to become of one mind with the natural world. The Kaianerekowa is the great medicine that comes from the minds of humanity, to create peace and take care of each other.
This is the only legal means by which anyone other than an ongwehonwe can live here.
From the Arctic, Pacific, Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico indigenous nations took part in the solemn ratification ceremonies.
In July 1701 we took the wampums to the British at Albany, who had taken over the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam in 1684. They agreed to the same terms. From here the Nanfan Treaty 1701 gave the British permission to live with us in peace.
In 1710 five Iroquois chiefs from each Haundensaunee nation went to Europe for the first and only time. One chief died on the way. They took the wampum belts to explain and ratify the Guswentha with the monarchs. All 13 royal bloodlines attended. Teeyeeneenhogarow, Sagaweathquatiethtow, Honeeyeathtawnorow and Etowohkoam were dubbed the “Four Indian Kings”.
The hierarchical heads turned the visit into a big circus. They didn’t want peace. Only war, ‘ordo ab chao’.
As a patriarchy they couldn’t let their women exercise female power. Without it, the peace could not be adopted.
The American Revolution was the first false flag. It was waged to destroy the Great Law constitution of peace and turn it into the US constitution of war. In 1779, the Americans sent 13,000 soldiers to Onondaga, the capital of the Iroquois Confederacy, to try to destroy the peace forever. They could never extinguish the fire of the people.
The British parked their ships in Quebec and took the year off so the Americans could try to finish us off.
Under international law when such a treaty is broken, everything goes back to one day before the treaty was ratified. In this case, June 24, 1701. We never surrendered anything. They reneged on living peacefully. They are squatters.
Once their hierarchy is gone and they give rights to their women, they can trace the roots to the Tree of Peace and establish peace with us.
Mohawks have not been to Onondaga since 1779. We had to leave our home communities to save our people and maintain the peace. Canada imprisons us here to continue their illusion of freedom, that this war was real. It was all theatre. The Mohawks will return to Onondaga to stand up the Tree of Peace.
That’s when our traitors will have to return to a proper mind with us. The women will give three warnings to the errant leaders. If they do not heed their warnings, the war chief drops the black wampum. They may grab it before it hits the floor and redeem themselves. If it hits the floor, the warriors smash in their heads with the war club to remove their errant minds.
