MNN. Dec. 19, 2014. Thahoketoteh arrived in 2000 in Kanekota, which is at the head of the Grand River. It is part of the 1784 Haldimand Proclamation British protectorate. Accordingly, he is guaranteed “by royal proclamation any Mohawk Indians as wish to settle in that quarter and take possession of, and settle upon the banks of the river commonly called Ouse or Grand River, running into Lake Erie, allotting for that purpose six miles deep from each side of the river, beginning at Lake Erie, and extending in that proportion to the head of the said river, which them and their posterity shall enjoy forever”. The rank Captain General has the power to make royal procalamations like the king, which supercedes all Admiralty statutes. The Kanion’ke:haka family made a claim to one lot, which equals 360 acres, lot 1 concession 11, Nottawasaga Township.

The late Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, ignored the Royal Proclamation and the claim. He built a home on one half of the claim. He was informed by MP Garth Turner prior to the construction about the Mohawk interest. He chose to ignored it. The Mohawk family is following the Guswentha and the Kaianerekowa, the law of the land.

The time has come for the Ongwehonwe to move to the hilly country according to our ancient instruction. The Kanion’ke:haka family would like to occupy Lot 1 Concession 11 now. They are asking the Royaner and Iotiyaner to have a meeting with Mrs. Flaherty at the property to resolve this issue according to the law. All the children need a permanent place to live and grow.

Thahoketoteh has taken this matter to the top General in the British military, Sir Peter Wall. He has been reminded of the order left for him by the top ranking British General ever.

Thahoketoteh took the case and all related Kanekota issues to the Admiralty court in 2012 [FCC T1396-12]. It ruled that it had no jurisdiction to grant the relief requested.

Everyone would like to resolve this properly. As Grand Funk tells us: “Everybody listen to me, and return me my ship. I’m your Captain. Though I’m feeling mighty sick. If you return me to my home port, I will kiss you, Mother Earth. Take me back now. Take me back now, to the port of my birth.” I’m your Captain/Closer to home.

Regarding your home: on Lot 1 Concession 11 Nottawasaga ON

She:kon. As you are probably aware, we went to see Garth Turner MP in 2005 to help us lodge our land claim as per the Haldimand Proclamation 1784. The Captain General designates the power of the king to issue royal procalamations, which supercede all Admiralty statutes in this monarchical democracy. Your husband decided to ignore the Royal Proclamation and build a home on our claim. We let him know before a shovel was put in the ground. I came to Kanekota in 2000 to find my claim as per the Royal Proclamation for my family as per Kaianerekowa. I rented a place for 3 years at $1500 a month, specifically to find the proper claim for me and my family to settle on. Lot 1 Concession 11 the site of Etobicoke Education Center which was being abandoned and I thought there would be no problems.

The property next door is where I lived for 3 years while choosing a suitable spot. Then I claimed the school property which is on half of lot 1 concession 11, the whole lot is was the perfect claim. It is 360 acres, enough for my growing family. All this was done according to the Kaianerekowa and the Two Row Wampum, which your government is legally required to honor.

The time for  the Ongwehonwe to move to the hilly country as per our ancient instruction is now. I would like to occupy my Lot 1 Concession 11 and start preparing for the arrival of my 3 children and 4 grandchildren. I now ask for your help in attaining this.

Your home is built on one half of Lot 1 Concession 11. I would like to have a meeting with you at the property. I will bring our chiefs and clan mothers so we can resolve this issue once and for all, in everyone’s best interest.

Just know that Lot 1 Concession 11 is part of the earth and going nowhere. The Mohawk claim will always be there even though your husband illegally built a house there. We would like to have the meeting at your house on Lot 1 Concession 11. Please inform us when if we can have this meeting. Our preference is before the winter solstice this year.

The real issue is the children. Like all children, they need a permanent place to live and grow. We would appreciate working with you on this issue. Please let me know as soon as possible upon receipt of my letter.Thahoketoteh of Kanekota thahoketoteh@hotmail.com cc. Royaner & Otiyaner.”
