MNN. Nov. 21, 2015. In 1994 there were joint military operations against the rotino’shonni:onwe [Iroquois] in US and Canada. “Gallant Piper” is the US counterpart to Canada’s “Operation Campus – Scorpion-Saxon”. New York State’s “INDIAN Detail’ was set up in 1974 after our people resettled on our territory at Moss Lake and then Ganienkeh. In 1995 NYS Governor Pataki appointed Brig. Gen. William C. Martin as the Deputy Adjutant General. Brig. General Wm Martin In 1996 he was to command ground and air assault combat against us, using New York’s 27th Infantry Brigade and 42nd Infantry Division, backed by helicoptors with armoured vehicles.

Scaring themselves for their war on terror.

Scaring themselves for their war on terror. The great law of peace is the answer.

Fort Drum military base near Watertown NY provided the soldiers for “Operation Gallant Piper’ to invade and kill the Mohawks and Senecas at ganienkeh, akwesasne, cattaraugus and allegheny. The military was going to attack the businesses that were not giving taxes to  New York State, based on an illegal agreement between Onondaga Council of Chiefs Inc. [Oren Lyons] and NYS. oka canada sent

A “Dialogue Team” was visiting our communities, briefing the people on the unlawful agreement which violated the kaia’nere:kowa, law of the land. NYS had no right to shut down our businesses. They had body bags, gymnasiums, community centers, fire halls and hospitals on standby for the dead and injured. Certain people were singled out. An insider informed us about the planned military attack. The press published the story. Gallant Piper was pulled.

The “INDIAN Detail was made up of NYS Police, National Guard and Fort Drum military. Most of its information, records, personnel, equipment and plans on the INDIAN Detail are at Fort Drum, less than an hour from Onondaga.

Do you think they can give us some of their Indian medicine that keeps them young.

Do you think they can give us some of their Indian medicine that keeps them living forever?

On May 18, 1997, the rotino’shonni, celebrating the defeat of the unlawful agreement in Onondaga, were attacked by the “INDIAN Detail”. According to court records, soldiers from Fort Drum were on their way to join the Troopers at Onondaga. We speculate this was a follow up to Gallant Piper as it involves the same personnel.

Boys, look out for False Flag Lady if she's in your vicinity!

Boys, look out for False Flag Lady if she’s in your area! She saw the Titanic go down!

In March 1998 Oren Lyons leading the Onondaga Council of Chiefs Inc. burnt down all non-cooperative businesses in Onondaga with the assistance of NYS. The same year Ronnie Jones, the leaders of the Onondaga resistance, was brutally murdered, hands and feet were severed. He was hung up by the neck and then his home set on fire.

It seems odd that Fort Drum soldiers are now being sent into battle with ISIS.

NYS has been delaying this trial for almost 20 years. In January 2016 NYS Police are going to stand trial for their criminality. Hopefully Brig. Gen. Martin can answer some of our questions. This is during our Midwinter Festival when we name our babies.

Jim Morrison knows that we are riding out a storm because the powers that be don’t have a fight with us: “Riders on the storm, riders on the storm. Into this house we’re born, into this world we’re thrown. Like a dog without a bone, an actor out on loan, Riders on the storm”. [Riders on the storm]. We have been and continue to ride out the storm.

MNN. Jan. 28, 2009. The colony of New York can only tax its subjects. The Seneca Nation and other Ongwehonwe are not part of this colony. The courts agree that the governor’s decree is illegal and non-enforceable. The Senecas say any attempt to interfere with our trade is an affront to our sovereignty.

On January 25, 2009, the Seneca, our brothers, sisters, friends, allies and supporters gathered at Cattaraugus to affirm that NYS must obey valid laws and agreements. At this time NYS Governor David A. Paterson began back pedaling because of the resistance and in anticipation of this New York State court ruling made on January 27th 2009.

The court confirmed that NYS has no right to interfere in Ongwehonwe sovereignty. Their face saving excuse is that NYS “hasn’t created a system to exempt Indians from taxation”!!! In other words, they remembered a bit of history. Or maybe they haven’t finished making the harnesses they were trying to put around our necks to make us rescue their failed economy. We stopped them from putting fake taxation remedies on us.

Just before the event Paterson sent a fax to the Seneca pledging his commitment to a “mutually productive relationship” with the “leadership”. He was referring to Barry Snyder of the tribal council which was set up as a colonial entity. This is not his call to make. We have a right under international law to chose our representative to negotiate with full knowledge and consent with foreign states like New York, the U.S. and Canada.

A deal between Paterson and Snyder to determine our fate is unacceptable. We must speak and our words must be heard. NYS has a history of making shady deals with co-opted “leaders”. The people will not let Paterson canoodle in isolation with so called leadership to make a tax pact that isn’t supported by the people.

We will not be threatened by colonial politicians in Albany who try to interfere with our trade and commerce and illegally force colonial jurisdiction on us. We will continue to make plans to collect tolls on the cars passing on the Interstate Thruway #90 that runs across our land. NYS did not honor the 1954 agreement to pay us $1 for every car that passes on the Thruway over our territory. We have every right to assert authority over our land. We have every right to travel freely on our territory. We have never relinquished any of this.

NYS is violating the Two Row Wampum Agreement, the Canadaigua Treaty 1794 and the U.S. Constitution. The Two Row created the U.S. colony. The Canadaigua Treaty states that, “the U.S. acknowledges that our property is our land and that the U.S. will never claim the same, nor disturb us in the use of our land”. It sets out the separate relationship between our nations. Article 7 states that only the U.S. President can select his designate to petition our leadership on nation to nation conflicts. The U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 2, also designates that only the President or his designate can speak with us on national matters, which is what trade and navigation is.

NYS illegally occupies our land. NYS cannot mount blockades on the delivery of trade goods to us. It is purporting it will come up with a scheme to trick, fool us and use force to make us comply with their pronouncement. They know the Seneca people must agree to everything. Otherwise we will resist as we always have. International law supports the protection of our birthright.

NYS constantly uses fraudulent means to make claims to our rights and possessions. It has never respected its agreement to not harass us, the owners of the land. It looks like NYS backed down when they got resistance. Their court system is set up to maintain their for-profit colonial corporation. But it did support us this time. However, it was the courts dedication to legal principles that forced it to recognize some of our rights.

This sounds more like a script for a B-Rate Hollywood movie. NYS is forming another impotent showpiece, the “Office of Indian Affairs”. We hope it is meant to educate themselves on the true history of the Ongwehonwe and their obligations to us.

Snyder is only familiar with NYS and Federal Indian Law which have nothing to do with our national sovereignty. We know any agreement will be used as a precedent to apply their one-sided edicts to other Ongwehonwe. Snyder is not authorized to negotiate on behalf of the “Keepers of the Western Door”. Only the people can do that through long established protocols. We will continue to live by the Kaianerehkowa, the Great Law of Peace. … 5407.story
