MNN. MNN. MAY 7, 2016. A rotiskenrakete recalls when Akwesasne was surround by the military in 1989. “Somebody from the band/tribal/handsome lake longhouse reports to the military. “Antis” were trained and put into position ahead of time.

Control over us is critical because we never relinquished our land and resources. A 100-year plan was made to assimilate/genocide us by 2024. in 1924 POW [prison of war] camps, called numbered “reserves”, were set up to imprison onkwe’hon:weh. The “INDIAN Affairs war room” was run by the Department of War and then Department of Defense. US Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Department of War are same.

Haudenosaunee Confederacy Council of Chiefs Inc. HCCC psyching up.

“It’s always about controlling the people. Bingo halls, casinos and slot machines could be set up by the onkwe’hon:weh independant nations. BIA reassured them that federal and state regulatory agencies did not apply. The kanion’ke:haka could proceed into the gaming business.

“The Mohawks were becoming prosperous and asserting their legitimate right to self-determination. The New York State public petitioned Albany to stop the kanion’kehaka/Mohawk as they were losing money because of the restaurants, gas, cigarettes, bingos and casinos.

“To illegally invade Akwesasne NYS used the excuse that slot machines were illegal in NYS, even though Akwesasne is not in NYS. The previous night the rotiskenrakete got a call from Washington DC that they were to be raided. In July 1989 over 1,000 NYS Troopers, federal marshals and FBI surrounded Akwesasne. National Guard and surrounding counties police were on alert.

Chief: "My auntie will appreciate this".

Chief: “My auntie will appreciate this”.

“37 armed onkwe’hon:weh men defended the community and the people. They backed out all police forces. Akwesasne was placed under marshall law.

“Antis surfaced. Some acted as though they were with the rotiskenraketeh. In fact, they were collaborators.

“Roadblocks surrounded Akwesasne. More Troopers arrived, costing $1 million a day. The highways were empty. Fort Drum Army Base was on alert.

“The standoff lasted for months. The media was kept out, except for a few. “Supporters/provocateurs” and mediators were sent in. Fletcher Graves believed the people spoke the truth but his people would not hear of it. Graves explained the destruction of the Black Panthers by the Department of Justice. Undercover agents were sent into meetings in homes to gather information. The government would then send in assassins to kill the targets and their families.

“Meetings were held with NYS Troopers’ commanders at bingo halls on Route 37. The rotiskenrakete had one speaker. The others listened. NYS wanted Route 37 opened. They were asked, ‘Why do you come in here with guns to talk about peace?’ NYS was chasing the onkwe’hon:weh who were on the outside back into the community. The men stopped them, took them into their protection and chased off the police.

Letterman the betterman.

Letterman the betterman.

“There was nothing to negotiate. Some wanted to end living under threat of invasion. They petitioned the federal government to bring in the 101st Airborne Division of the regular army to do away with the ‘warrior society’.

“The feds needed a reason to invade. A phony gun fight was created where the Canadian government supplied guns to the antis. Two young men were murdered. The excuse was then made to come in. Canada sent St. Regis police, RCMP, OPP; NYS sent in Troopers, federal marshalls, local police and other policing agencies. Nobody was ever prosecuted for these murders.hope

“Onondaga chiefs stayed out. A rotiskenrakete told the NY Times, “The Chiefs in Onondagas were museum Indians and cowards with power!” An anti phoned them warning them to be careful what they say or something is going to happen to them. They refused a face to face meeting.

After this Admiralty rules and regulations were made to control all INDIAN gaming.

That's what happens.

So be it.

“Overwhelming forces did not discredit the rotiskenrakete.”

Johnny Cash asks what we have become and that everyone goes away in the end: [Hurt]

 

Antis guard GREAT.

Antis guard GREAT.

HOMELAND SECURITY

mnnlogo1

 

Please post & distribute. Nia:wen.

MNN. Feb. 9, 2015. On May 18, 1997, over 100 Haudenosaunne/Iroquois were brutally beaten by New York State Troopers. They disrupted a sacred tobacco burning ceremony at Onondaga, the capital of the Iroquois Confederacy. Lawyers, Terrance Hoffmann of Syracuse and Abramowitz, Grand, Iason & Anello of New York City, volunteered to act for us, free of charge. Since then the Troopers lost twice to have their case thrown out, purporting they were just carrying out orders in the line of duty.homeland

The Admiralty court was advised that if this case went to trial the Haudenosaunee would win. Judge George Lowe advised NYS to make a financial settlement with us. 13 plaintiffs refused the “cash and shut up” settlement. The case must now proceed to trial. In February 2014 the lawyers made a motion to drop those of us who did not agree with the settlement. This case was never about money. It’s about accountability and holding those responsible to account. Judge Wiley Dancks allowed the lawyers to drop us.  [Andrew Jones et al v. Parmley, et al Civil Action No. 98-CV-374 [FJS][TWD].

We are lawyerless and penniless. It seems this was part of their plan. We recently met in Onondaga and became of one mind. We will defend ourselves and ask for all the disclosures. We’ve been 18 years in the wildnerness of the US court system. It reminds us of Apache Chief Geronimo’s last stand in the wilderness of Mexico.

Court business house up that way!

Their whole system is pretend. They don’t even see it! Ha ha!

The United States District Court Northern District of New York may be doing an end around Article 7 of the Canandaigua Treaty which states:

“Lest the firm peace and friendship now established should be interrupted by the misconduct of individuals, the United States and the Six Nations agree, that for injuries done by individuals, on either side, no private revenge or retaliation shall take place; but, instead thereof, complaint shall be made by the party injured, to the other; by the Six Nations or any of them, to the President of the United States… as shall be necessary to preserve our peace and friendship unbroken, until the Legislature (or Great Council) of the United States shall make other equitable provision for that purpose”.

Canadaigua 1794 Only the US President can deal with our issues.

Only the President of the United States shall preserve our peace and friendship unbroken. Canadaigua 1784.

As Bruce Cocburn sings: “Apartheid in Arizona, slaughter in Brazil. If bullets don’t get good p.r., there’s other ways to kill. Kidnap all the children, put them in a foreign system, bring them up in no man’s land where no one really wants them. It’s a stolen land”. We’d appreciate and welcome any help you might have.

1997 NYS ATTACK HAUDENOSAUNEE

mnnlogo1

 

 

MNN. Oct. 16, 2013. In May 18, 1997, members of the Haudenosaunee from our communities converged on Onondaga Nation land next to NYS Thruway 81. Most were  women, children and babies, as well as some of our men. It was to be a joyous celebration with a tobacco burning, feast, dancing and singing. At 3.00 pm 200 paramilitary New York State Troopers surrounded, attacked and viciously beat us up, injuring, jailing and incapacitating us. Many ran with babies in their arms to hide in the surrounding bush. STOMP DANCE

Over the years this case went through the court. All motions to drop the case and that the cops had a right to do it, were defeated. Judge George Low studied the evidence and reported that if this went to trial, we would win. There was no justification for the attack and it was all filmed. [See video below]

Eventually New York State decided to stop any trial by giving about 100 plaintiffs and the lawyers $3 million. The condition was that the traitorous state controlled Onondaga Council Inc. that requested the attack, NYS police and the politicians would be immune from prosecution. We could not be able to discuss it. Some signed as the people are very poor and needed the funds. It had to be unanimous. 

On Oct. 15, 2013, those who refused to sign were ordered to meet with the Judge Therese Wiley Dancks of the US Court Northern District NY and our lawyers in Syracuse. The 12 plaintiffs did not expect to be taken separately into rooms and intimidated by their own lawyers and the judge into signing the agreement or else!  They were threatened to remain silent. 

On Oct. 16, the following day, the remaining plaintiffs were called in. Judge Lowe made a presentation. “I am neutral!” Then he proceeded to tell us of the dire consequences if we don’t sign: years of trial, motions, this is an that, racist jurors. By 2020 if we win, we might be awarded $1. Money was mentioned over and over again.   

NYS does not know that Haudenosaunee consensus is discussion and full disclosure.

Haudenosaunee consensus is based on open discussion and full disclosure.

Several plaintiffs said, “I did not come here to be talked to like a child”. He withdrew his consent to the settlement. Another said, “Sovereignty is our goal. Not money”. The majority agreed. They walked out of court and went home.  We were reminded once again we can’t stand before the enemy and expect justice. To be continued… See the NYS attack: NYS attack Haudenosaunee http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEbvX9hfBGY

VICTORY IN US COURT OF APPEAL

 

– NYS TROOPERS ILLEGALLY “AMBUSHED” IROQUOIS IN ONONDAGA IN 1997

MNN. Oct. 17, 2006. Nine years ago we went to Onondaga to celebrate a victory against New York State who wanted to illegally tax us in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Around noon, on May 18, 1997, when we started to burn tobacco on Andrew Jones property right along Interstate 81, the “Indian Detail” Division of the New York State Troopers came along the highway. They were dressed in full riot gear and bearing riot batons. A videotape made at the time reveals some troopers joking about their “sticks” and how every trooper has “gotta have a stick”. One trooper said that the Indians needed “to get their asses kicked”. They had removed their name tags even though the State Police Manual requires them to be worn at all times.

The Troopers used the “skirmish line” formation by facing the protesters who were 70 feet off the highway and then surrounded us. They were lead by Ollie Gibson who was wearing a ribbon shirt and pointing out people to them. Does this mean that the Troopers don’t know one Indian from another or who was a man or who was a woman or a child? We all had dark skin and dark hair.

They walked towards us smacking their batons on their palms. They charged into the people and began arresting protesters, beating us with batons, dragging us by our hair and kicking us. They threw one man, who was praying, to the ground and chocked him. They manhandled an eleven-year old girl and an elderly medicine woman and even tossed a baby in a double leg cast from his stroller. Not a nice bunch of people!

There was no order and no warning to us. The Troopers tried to stop people from taking pictures and video taping what was going on by putting their hands over the lenses and threatening to arrest the cameramen. They even beat up some of them. A videotape is available of the news clippings which appeared over and over again on local television in Syracuse.

26 people were arrested and charged. All charges were dismissed. One woman was accused of not moving out of the way when told to do so. She had fainted. They had to use smelling salts to revive her and then arrest her. The Troopers brought charges against one man for “running back and forth in a provocative manner”. He was acquitted. This man had arrived late, looked around at the melee, in shock and got the h–l kicked out of him.

The father of the property owner, Ron Jones, was murdered in his home soon after. His hands were cut off and his house in Onondaga was torched. This is still an unsolved murder. We continue to put our messages about New York States complicity with certain Indian individuals, the murders and other crimes on the billboard right next to Route 81 for all the world to see. This is one of the ways we can tell the public about our issues.

We brought charges against them in the US District Court for the Northern District of New York for violating our freedom of speech, religion and assembly, using excessive force, conspiring to violate our rights, our right to equal protection, while being indifferent to our medical needs. We did not want this to happen again to our people. The Troopers claimed that they had “qualified immunity” that “shields police officers acting in their official capacity from suits for damage…” They said they made an “honest mistake”. Is this like being “killed by friendly fire”? Are they saying, “I just forgot! Sorry for beating you up and killing you. I didn’t mean to let you make me get so mad at you”.

They lost at the first level. The Troopers took this decision to the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. On October 4th 2006 they lost again. Does this mean that the Troopers are going to be the fall guys for New York State and whoever requested and ordered this attack? [See case posted on  mohawknationnews.com].

The troopers want to get out of all this by declaring they had “qualified immunity” that they think will let them off the hook. This last decision makes it hard for NY State. So now we can look forward to a 6 to 8 month trial in Syracuse.

There are the issues. We were demonstrating on private property and the Troopers dispersed our meeting. The Troopers had just come from the Seneca protest on the New York State Thruway. There is evidence that the Troopers were partially motivated by what had happened elsewhere.

When the Troopers came in, it was tantamount to going into a church, chasing people out and desecrating their institution during a “religious” gathering. We asked for an injunction to stop the cops from attacking us again. There is a film showing the viciousness of the attack.

It was also found that the Troopers had pre-planned this attack. The protesters had gone to the Jones property 10 days before. The people had started a ceremonial fire and then invited other members of the Six Nations to join them on May 18th 1997 for a ceremonial gathering. About 100 people came. We handed out pamphlets on 81 as the cars slowed down to see what was going on. Then we backed off.

This is an important case because we need to curb the power of the police to make up scenarios so they can carry out their “Indian Detail” agenda. They said they believed that there would be guns there. In other words, they took the law into their own hands. Obviously the court did not believe them. On May 17th, the day before, calls went out. State Troopers were told to meet at the K Mart parking lot in Nedrow. This was coordinated with the local Sheriff with paddy wagons and the whole works. The plan of attack was set out. On the 18th more Troopers arrived at that parking lot.

At that time they were approached by Onondaga resident, Stone Horse, who told them that it was a peaceful gathering. He noticed they had all taken off their name badges and asked them why. The Troopers said that the pins might hurt and distract them, even though they were sporting guns in their holsters. [Do we think maybe they didn’t want their name badges damaged? Were they taking themselves out of their own persona and putting themselves into an adolescent street gang that could run rough shod over Indians with impunity? It’s not their badges that beat us up. It’s them! They still are what they are – New York State Troopers!]

Stone Horse told them that a few people would be handing out flyers and that there would be cameramen there. The people were not on the road for a short time. Stone Horse said, “We are off the road. What do you want us to do?”

The police were asked if they gave orders to us to disperse. They said, “No!” They started to arrest whoever they could lay their hands on. Why? They did not know why?” Did you see a gun there? “No!” they replied. Was politics running the police? Was it premeditated? They were going to arrest and kick ass, according to them. The Troopers said that we refused to leave the road. We were not on the road as they started to attack us.

We have a very important story to tell. There are two issues we want to deal with. What is the New York State Police “Indian Detail” Division? We know that the outside police cannot go on our land and onto private property.

One of the plaintiffs spoke about the case. He said that we are not taxable by a foreign government. We were celebrating its acknowledgement. Our people stood up against an illegal attempt to bring taxation against our people. We won in the court. Governor George Pataki said that he was going to be the first Governor of New York State to “put the Indians in their place”. The Chiefs worked with New York State to sign an illegal taxing agreement which had just been rescinded. It was a difficult day for us. We are a sovereign people to this day. New York State cannot impose their will upon us. We had a rally in April 1997 in Albany to make this point. Those who came were a cross section of every segment of the Onkwehonwe communities. Today Attorney General Eliot Spitzer is trying the same fraud.

We told Bob Bateson of the NY State government, “You can enter all the agreements you want with any of the so-called chiefs and leaders. If the grass roots people do not agree, then you have no agreement and you cannot enforce it. That’s the law!”

On May 18, 1997 New York State Troopers acted illegally. The leaders were so intent on proving how mighty and powerful they were. This attack shows how warped their minds are. Within three days Governor Pataki called a press conference at the Museum of the American Indian. When his helicopter landed, he came directly to the Dialogue Team of the Iroquois who were there. He put out his hand and said, “I am so happy to see you here. You are going to like what I am going to say”. He went up to the podium and said, “From this day forward we are going to respect the sovereignty of the Indian nations”.

Yes, he backed down on imposing taxes on us. Instead he is collecting taxes by setting up “revenue sharing” schemes with the “tribal” chiefs and councils set up under federal Indian law. This violates the U.S. Constitution and the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act in violation of international laws that respects self-determination. He is ignoring the peoples’ sovereignty by getting the tribal councils to force us to pay taxes to him without consulting us and without our consent.

Now his Attorney General Eliot Spitzer is starting the same war with us again, trying to fraudulently bring in the taxation process against us. Our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents were all in this war. We have said that never again are traitorous chiefs going to do what they have done to us.

We can’t go to our ancestors as they are not here. Should we leave the burden to our children? New York State violated its own laws. Federal Indian law is illegal. We are reminding the colonists that this is our land, our jurisdiction and we have a right to identify ourselves. The colonists must respect the Two Row Wampum and the Great Law. We were born free and are still free. We never agreed to be American or Canadian “Indians” and never will.

We had the wisdom of our ancestors who put that law together. It was the greatest gift that came from our minds. It doesn’t matter what our physical condition is, this is our power. Let us use the wisdom of our ancestors and our minds and we will succeed.

This was part of the resistance by the Iroquois people against the oppression on Turtle Island . For this reason, the Six Nations people are always facing hatred from the corporate controllers of colonial governments and institutions in Canada and the United States. As the guardians of northeastern Turtle Island they want to eliminate us. This is why these states and their corporate interests are exerting so much brute force on us. Our defense in this case with New York State and others is to live according to our constitution, the Great Law of Peace.
