MNN. July 13, 2015. The Canadian Army sent their “special ops” into Kahnawake to march in the Grand Opening of the Echoes of a Proud Nation Pow Wow. July 11, 2015, is the 25th anniversary of the Mohawk Crisis of 1990. We were blatantly shown that Kahnawake is still a Prisoner of War Camp under army jurisdiction. They oversee the imprisonment of our people and help to carry out the “final solution of the ongwe’hon:weh [INDIAN] problem”.

All this for a parade!

Gen. Custer: “All this for a parade!”

The incorporated Mohawk Council of Kahnawake headed by Joe “Jean-Brebeuf” Norton is part of this façade. Special ops are trained killers prepared to use deadly force. Indian Affairs is a division of the Canadian army and is run from their “war room” command center on the 14th floor at 10 Wellington Street, Ottawa Ontario. The Royal Van Doos  brazenly showed off their red berets [obscene on this occasion]. The message from the band council is they still follow the orders from the generals on the 14th floor. The Aboriginal Response Team was merged with CSIS in 2007. In Canada the only people that wear the red berets are the military police.

AIM red berets: “No Joe Norton here!”

The “Indian Detail” for using deadly force against us is being flaunted here. The rest of the world is on to Canada’s ongoing genocide against us which they will continue until we stop it. The people of the world have to support us to end the evil that is Canada. The CROWN must be charged along with anyone who swears an oath to them for the crime of genocide.


Black power in black berets.

Black power in black berets: “Not here either”.

The military is trying to keep us as prisoners of war in our own land, that resistance is futile and the corporation intends to sign us away and steal all our lands, resources and trust funds.

Chicano brown berets: Whaddya know, no Joe!”


The military parade is a not thinly veiled threat to intimidate any who would resist them. Between the collaboration of the band council and the brutality of the military, we must continue to resist today as we did 25 years ago.

As Garth Brooks sings, all soldiers can relate because they’ve all got friends in low places: “Cause I’ve got friends in low places, where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blue away”.


MNN. “Like … killing”.

JULY 12, 2015. At the dawn tobacco burning in the Pines of Kahehsatake, a vow was reaffirmed that we would always protect our mother. In 1990 our land, nursed to beauty, as is our way, the Kanion’ke:haka [Mohawks] was as ever coveted by Canada’s elite for a golf course, a playground. We resisted. The SQ came in with guns blazing. Then the RCMP followed. Then, as their system dictates, the Canadian army, the Royal Van Doos was sent in. All “INDIAN” communities, being sovereign nations, are regarded as Prisoner of War camps by the CROWN. The blood flowed.

Van Doos attack children.

Van Doos doing their duty.  

At the foot of the Mercier Bridge leading from Kahnawake to Montreal, our people stood to commemorate one bloody event among too many. The significance of this act is that all ongwe’hon:weh have the same mind, respect of the mother and the duty to protect her. The European way is to exploit and destroy her.

25 years later at the Kahnawake “Echoes of a Proud Nation” Pow Wow Grand Entry about 20 Royal 22nd Regiment [Van Doos], invited by someone, paraded in the Grand Opening.

We remember the Van Doos spat, insulted, beat, stoned, stabbed, shot, imprisoned, tortured not the least children and killed…. murdered ongwe’hon:weh elders.

How is this possible, in what world? We are a free and sovereign nation. They are our enemy. It can only be the oldest game. Our vast Indian Trust Funds, our land and resources could make the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake Inc. get into bed with the Van Doos. The changes being masked by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission are to maintain the genocide. We resist every day. 25 years ago was a part of that.



They are here. We are ready!

Buffy Sainte Marie reminds us to be ever vigilant: “One step at a time, Polarity Hill. If the bad guys don’t get you, baby. Then the good guys will. With angels on the take And the gangsters in the yard. Hey don’t the wars come easy. Hey don’t the peace come hard.”

MNN. Feb. 17, 2013.  Department of National Defense DND sees us Indigenous as foreign insurgents, according to their field manual on counterinsurgency for its soldiers and officers. Canadian Forces field manual They obviously recognize our sovereignty. The Crown should be negotiating with us as their landlords. Under international accords that Canada has signed, all countries must resolve differences by diplomatic means. War and weapons used to dominate are illegal.

Lt.Gen. Tom Lawson, Chief of Defense, Mackay, Minister of Defense: Oooh, you can't stop us!

Lt.Gen. Tom Lawson, Chief of Defense, Peter Mackay, Minister of Defense.

The people and all resources belong to Mother Earth for future generations. We have the duty as caregivers for the future children. Nothing on Great Turtle Belongs to the multinational corporations and banks. They are corporate visitors.  Prime Minister Harper has to be brought before the International Criminal Court in The Hague for declaring war against us illegally, putting many of us in danger. 

The manual says, “Insurgent wars are characterized by their tendency to be local and often popular movements, rather than the traditional military conflicts between states. This type of irregular warfare has confounded US and NATO forces in Iraq and Afghanistan respectively”, and “successes are few and far between”. US and Canadian military need practice in reaching for their guns and riot gear by confronting unarmed Indigenous civilians here. 

In the war on terror the enemy is the insurgent. We are labeled as insurgents, which is a declaration of war against us. When we are detained or stopped by police or military, we have no civil rights or due process.  

Maj. D.J. Lambert, the lead author of the manual, points out that “Canadian Forces are actively engaged in various levels of confrontation with at least three ongoing insurgencies – in Afghanistan, Haiti and with domestic Indigenous organizations in Canada, such as the Mohawk Warrior Society”. 

Left, right, left, right: "We are marching to Attawapiskat... "

Left, right, left, right: “We are marching to Attawapiskat… “

The manual goes on, “Indigenous resistance in Canada are insurgencies because they are animated by the goal of altering political relationships with both the Canadian government and at the local level – within Indigenous reservations themselves – “through the threat of, or use of, violence”. We are trying to defend ourselves against their violence and make them obey their laws. This is a foreign army on our land, falsely criminalizing us and imposing their military law on us.  

“Canadian Forces have been used by the federal government in high profile land confrontations with Indigenous communities and protestors in standoffs with the Mohawks of Kanehsatake in 1990 and with the Ojibway at Ipperwash in 1995”. DND admits the military was at Ipperwash. The sniper who murdered Dudley George might have been a soldier and not an Ontario Provincial Policeman. Corporal Deane and two other OPP key witnesses died in mysterious car crashes shortly before they were to appear as witnesses at the Inquiry. 

The Canadian military is the aggressor delivering death sentences to defenseless civilians, including infants and children, without a charge or trial. We sense Canada wants to provoke a confrontation to justify attacking or killing us. We won’t give them that. 

Gen. Leslie said, “The enormous resources invested by the government in the transformation of Canada’s armed forces are clearly not for Afghanistan alone. It is logical to expect that we will go somewhere fairly similar to Afghanistan and do much the same sort of activity.” 

They plan to attack us. This is premeditated murder of innocent people by a corporate army. Peace loving people who are concerned about Canada’s war mongering and targeting of Indigenous people should contact the Canadian government harper.s@parl.ca, the Governor General gg@gc.ca, the Queen press@royalcollection.org.uk and the Canadian military www.forces.gc.ca. 

As CCR sang in “Fortunate Son”: “Some folks are born, made to wave the flag. Oooh, that red, white and blue. And when the band plays, “Hail to the Chief”, oooh, they point the cannon at you, lord. It ain’t me, it ain’t me. I ain’t no senator’s son. It ain’t me, it ain’t me. I ain’t no fortunate one.”Creedence: Fortunate Son
