CREE COMPANIES IN UNLAWFUL MEGA BUSINESSES ON MOHAWK LAND
REMEMBER WHEN WE VISITED THE MOHAWKS AND THEY TREATED US SO GOOD.
MNN. Dec. 14, 2021. kahnistensera Mohawk mothers have alerted Cree Corporations about their illegal business developments on kanienkehaka mohawk land without permission.
TO: Abel Bosum, Grand Council of the Crees [Eeyou Istchee] and Cree Nation Government, 2 Lakeshore Road, Nemaska, QC J0Y 3B0 – 418-691-1111, 819-673-2600;
“Land claims” is an English term invented by Britain, US and Canada to make land theft seem valid. This mind game does not put them in the drivers seat. It’s our land. The only way to give up land is to take money, to sell it, flip the title constantly, but the underlying ownership always remains with the original natives. The current ‘land claims’ system is meant to force us to submit land claims on lands we naturally own. No one can ever prove that we sold any of our land to anyone legally. We are each sovereign and as caretakers we can never convey, transfer or sell any of turtle island, as the titleholders are our unborn children. Our duty is to maintain this land for them.
We are the caretakers of tianni tiotiaken, known as ‘Montreal’. kaianerekowa, the great peace, and all aboriginal law is based on the natural world. Corporate contracts and treaties for land transferred between foreigners and the original people are illegitimate. No one nation has the authority to deal with a land issue on their own. It has to go through the Iroquois Confederacy Grand Council. All nations have to agree, skanikonras. In the case of Crees and Mohawks, this has not happened.
Montreal is selling stolen Mohawk land to the Crees. The Crees are buying stolen property. The Crees should approach their relatives, the kanienhaka Mohawks, to legalize their activities on our land. This is a national issue that bypasses all imposed foreign authorities on turtle island.
The kanistensera, Mohawk mothers, are the progenitors of the soil of our people and caretakers of the land, water and air since time immemorial. We are to survive and coexist as siblings with nature on our mother earth. kaianerekowa is the will of the people according to the natural world, which is embodied in the original 49 families of the tekentiakwenhoxta. The Crees have made contracts with foreigners for our land, which is another form of theft, genocide and assimilation. The Cree think they have to go through the white illegal authorities to use and annex Mohawk land.
CANADA STEALS OUR LAND & MONEY, THEN SELLS US OUR OWN LAND & WE PAY FOR IT FROM OUR STOLEN INDIAN TRUST FUNDS!!! THEN THE BUSINESS GOES BUT AND WE LOSE EVERYTHING.
The kanistensera object to the Cree corporation building infrastructures on our land without our permission. Historically we permitted the refugees the depth of a plow only to support their families. The Grand Council of the Crees and Cree Nation Government are privately owned corporations like the Hudson’s Bay Company who killed the animals and made our life difficult. Today corporations are filthy rich while our people are living on the streets of the cities. In the past everybody had food and shelter. Corporations are only concerned about money and the power it brings them. The kaianerekowa does not allow anyone to continue this carnage to all life on onowarekeh.
Proper protocol was not followed as the Crees used an assimilated mind. The proposed tower is being put in the middle of tiani tiotiakon [Montreal]. The land belongs to us kanienkehaka Mohawk, not Montreal, Quebec or Canada. You failed to come to your own people to make an agreement with us on your illegal project. kariwakwenionston. Respect.
Corporate Crees are the illegal band councils established by the corporation of Canada in 1924 and thus are not indigenous. They gave up their political standing to become canadiens [squatters] therefore leaving behind their indigenous political liberties. We are the keepers of this portion of turtle island for the coming generations. All land on geniengeh is the responsibility of the kanienhaka of the iroquois Confederacy. Whenever we hear of an encroaching danger, we are to bring it to our family, then to our clan which will bring it up to the councils, which will come to one mind. Their decision is taken to the Grand Council, katiohonwanenkeh, the big fire. One individual spark is added to the clan spark, then to the nation spark and then to the big fire. At every level that spark turns into a fire. Rotistenhaien. Iera’kwa [Iroquois] is when we put the issue on the floor of the Iroquois Confederacy council that is in session.
KAIANEREKOWA THE GREAT PEACE IS THE SOLUTION.
WE SUGGEST TO OUR RELATIVES, THE CREE, TO FOLLOW DUE PROTOCOL IN OUR HOMELAND WITH OUR PEOPLE, TO COME TO THOSE WHO HAVE AUTHORITY OVER THE SAID LAND ACCORDING TO OUR TRUE RELATIONSHIP:
1.The Grand Council of the Crees, Cree Nation Government and all their corporate subsidiaries involved in this illegal project should meet with our people so that we can remind them and resolve this matter in tewatatekeh, to council properly as relatives. All agreements are based on the kaianerekowa, the nice path that has been laid out for us all. tewaianosere.
2.Our ancestors made a protocol on how we will co-exist on turtle island which we all agreed to respect, called the kaianerekowa.
3.The teiohateh, two row, is the basis of our relationship to the earth and with each other which is based on the natural world.
4.Under sections 35 and 52 of the Constitution Act of Canada, 1982, the natural laws of the original peoples are recognized as the only laws of turtle island. The Crees are following the foreign contract law of Canada which have no force or effect. They have no land rights on Mohawk land.
According to the original instructions between us and nature, kanistensera speak for the soil and all life. Our message is to remind you that the protocols of our ancestors are more important than the strength of the white man’s crown law.
No sovereign onkwehonwe sanctioned your actions. We were never notified of your plans on tioni tiotiakon with the city of Montreal government which has no authority on land issues.
Hank Williams sang about sadness when all is gone: “I’m gonna find me a river, one that’s cold as ice. And when I find me that river, Lord I’m gonna pay the price, Oh Lord! I’m goin’ down in it three times, but Lord I’m only comin up twice. She’s long gone, and now I’m lonesome blue”.
On behalf of the past, present and future ancestors and descendants of the kanienkehaka, the great peace and two row will prevail.
MNN. Dec. 9, 2021. [Thahoketoteh of MNN on FCC v kahnistensera]. Arrangements were made with SQI lawyer, Alexandre Rouan Bazinet, last week to discuss transfer of all keys for the Royal Victoria Hospital to the kanistensera, to house the indigenous homeless. Notice of the meeting was sent to the SQI, City of Montreal, McGill University, Stantic Construction Company, the Montreal Police and McGill Security. Official kenienkehaka Mohawk Nation protocols were followed throughout.
A report is being carried to the men’s fires of Iroquoia. McGill and Quebec both deny ownership of Mount Royal as it was the Mohawk village of tekanontak. Bazinet is the lawyer for SQI in a Federal Court of Canada motion T-1696-21, filed by the kanistensera. At the Public Consultation Commission hearing on the Royal Vic Project, the SQI was declared to be “owners” of the property under Canadian corporate law. Both SQI and McGill are now denying being the owners of Mount Royal as they would be guilty of dealing with stolen kanienkehaka property under the kaianerekowa, great peace, and Canadian corporate law. Moreover they prepared their own militia to brutalize the elders and supporters. A full criminal investigation should be done with regard to this outrageous armed assault, abuse, threats and bullying so the public is aware. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fL0Easmd-4
And a text written by the Milton park allies below!
Yesterday, at 11.35, DEC. 8, 2021, the Milton Parc Citizens’ Committee organized a peaceful protest to stand with the Kanien’kehá:ka Kahnistensera [Mohawk Mothers]. 25 to 30 people of all ages were present to retrieve the keys to the Royal Vic, a subsidiary of McGill University. After speeches, elders and mothers of the Nation entered the SQI, Province of Quebec Department of Infrastructures, office building. A police officer standing outside, speaking to a liaison, threatened to declare the protest illegal, and to begin arrests of those who remained. Police alleged protest members were blocking the doors to the offices. This could not have been further from the truth: the protest was very remote from the door to the offices. The police then threatened, again, to declare the protest illegal this time unless the name of the event organizer was disclosed to them. There is no legal obligation to disclose such information to police officers. It is bizarre they made such an insistence, and it is certainly not grounds to declare a protest illegal.The right to silence protects privacy.
Inside the building, mothers and elders asked to speak to a member from the SQI who they had made an appointment with and who the mothers and elders informed that they would be coming. The mothers and elders were not aggressive or confrontational. However, the police, visibly permitted by the SQI, quickly escalated the situation. The police did not allow the mothers to wait in the waiting room until they could make contact with a representative. One officer clearly attempted to intimate and provoke an elder, just as 20-25 police officers rushed into the building, scaring the protesters outside who were unaware of the events taking place in the offices. All these events unrolled in a time period of roughly 20 minutes. One of the people assigned to accompany the elders was forced by police to turn off their camera, and a journalist from Le Metro had their camera punched by an officer, as assault. The journalist later said to an organizer that they had ‘never experienced such direct aggression from police, despite years of covering protests.’ The elders and mothers were then violently shoved out of the SQI offices.
As this scene became visible, the crowd outside was completely shocked and disgusted; turned on their cameras and quickly began admonishing the officers. It is a great shame that the police and the SQI allowed the situation to escalate, and for violence and threats to be delivered to citizens; as well as elders and mothers whose nations are traditional caretakers of this land. The SQI is directly responsible for this police response. The Royal Vic has turned into the subject of a serious land dispute. As such, this heavy, disproptionate response from the SQI and the police only perpetuates a harsh colonial legacy, shutting down attempts at dialogue and respect between members of different nations with the threat of armed force. No matter the resistance: we remain true to our struggle for human rights and justice.
Frank Smith dances to the double talk we constantly get: “To get on the double dutch bus you know you want to jump. So get on the double dutch bus. So take a ride, we’re waiting in the clutch. There’s a double dutch bus coming down the street. Moving pretty fast, so kind shuffle your feet. Get on the bus, and pay your fare. Tell the driver you’re going to a double dutch affair. Follow me. fe fi fo fum, fe fi fo fum”. [Double Dutch Bus]

HOW SECTIONS 35 AND 52 OF THE CONSTITUTION ACT OF CANADA 1982 WIPED OUT THE COLONY OF CANADA
MNN. Dec. 4, 2021. The supreme original laws of turtle island are the kaianerekowa, great peace, and other original natural laws that existed since time immemorial. The kaianerekowa recognizes only the kaianerekowa. All other laws are null and void. Section 35  of the Constitution Act of Canada, 1982, “recognizes and affirms” the “original laws and peoples of Canada”. Anyone recognizing all Canadian laws violats the teiohate, two row. Staying in our canoe and staying out of their ship.
OUCH! THE COLONIAL LIE HAS BUSTED
Pre-colonial aboriginal rights existed on onowarekeh, turtle island, since time immemorial before the settler colonists arrived and illegally imposed themselves on our land. The colonial Constitution Act of Canada, 1982, was to solidify their theft of turtle island. The “existing aboriginal rights of the aboriginal peoples” are based on the kaianerekowa, the great peace, and other original laws which existed from the beginning of time, and have never nor will ever be amended, until the end of time, because they are based on nature. There has never been a surrender of land, people or anything on turtle island. Ever.
Section 35  provides: “the existing [pre colonial] aboriginal and treaty rights of the aboriginal people of turtle island are hereby recognized and affirmed”.
Section 35 affirms the supremacy of the original people of turtle island. 95% of the survivors of the genocide are forced to live by the illegal Indian Act and all laws of the colony of Canada that go against the kaianerekowa. Section 35.(2) provides “aboriginal peoples of Canada” includes all the natural people of turtle island and the [corporate] Indian, Inuit and Metis which are created by Parliament. They follow the laws of Canada [Indian Act] and are Canadians and not indigenous.
Section 52 confirms that section 35 (1) is the supreme law of the colony of Canada [but not of turtle island]. It specifically “recognizes and affirms” the kaianerekowa and indigenous laws of “the aboriginal peoples of Canada.”
Section 52 provides that the colony of Canada is subservient to the kaianerekowa and all indigenous laws. All laws of Canada which don’t acknowledge our supremacy are of no force or effect and go against the kaiainerekowa. their laws are for their subjects. we are not their subjects.
Section 35 specifically recognizes only the “aboriginal peoples of Canada.” The kaianerekowa, and original indigenous laws, are ratified and legally binding on the colony of Canada according to section 35.(1). This section “recognizes and affirms” the supremacy of indigenous laws and the existence of the “original peoples of Canada”.
BYE BYE ILLEGAL INDIAN ACT BAND COUNCILS
Section 52  confirms that Section 35 is the supreme law of ‘Canada’. Therefore, all laws of Canada that are not recognized by the kananerekowa are of no force or effect. All Canadian laws have been genocided by the genociders. No weapons were used. Just words.
Because the kaianerekowa does not recognize any other laws, and, therefore, does not recognize any of Canada’s laws and constitutions, Sections 35 and 52 establish that the kaianerekowa and all indigenous laws are the ONLY laws in Canada.
Canada shot itself in the foot. The supreme laws of turtle island including Canada, are indigenous laws. As a result Canada is “of no force or effect” and cannot exist as it violates its own law.
The immortal Beatles, in their final recording, recognize that kaianerekowa is the answer, stated: “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me. Speaking words of wisdom, let it be”. . .

MNN. DEC. 2, 2021. Black Friday, every Friday in Kahnawake is the illegal band council’s dream, to make us more spiritually and mentally dependent than we have ever been.
The illegal Mohawk Council of Kahnawake Mayor Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer has disgusted and shamed the kanienkehaka’onwe by welcoming a project to turn kahnawake into a shopping mecca to welcome foreigners into our community. We are being urged to speak French to accommodate shoppers. She scolds us for not being better friends with our non-native neighbors who want to economically screw us over, but who actually admire the way we do business. We don’t pay taxes and do what we want. She wants us to give this all up and be more accommodating for their economic development purposes to enrich them and their Quebec and Canada partners and investors.
“We have untapped potential,” she said. “The highways that run through the territory see a lot of traffic every day, so it could be home to businesses like a Target or an Amazon factory.” “Right now,” she added, “we really need big real estate projects in our community.” Where will we live? We need more land housing for our children. With the trillions in our Indian Trust Funds, which are illegally held by Canada without our permission, we could do anything we want. We are actually the wealthiest poor people on earth. We just need to get rid of the government’s POW camps called ‘reserves’ and their illegal band council system of traitors that run the genocide show for Canada.
The band council is a departmwent of Indian Affairs which is a department of the army. We are in jail already. The offices for the grandiose franchises should not be here.
They are already evicting the complaining rabble rousers.
An Amazon factory in Kahnawake actually means that the Quebec and Canada decide what projects will be implanted to reimburse us for our stolen Indian Trust Funds and reparations for genocide. We are coerced capitalists who are preyed upon and threatened with extinction. We are extorted with our own funds that iare owed to us. How about the planned “Squatters Inn” hotel with Quebec taking the profits!
Her three-way project is a taxation coop for this area. Outsiders won’t be accepting our native tax cards, which has already started. All of turtle island is a tax free zone for us. Kahnawake will become a municipality and the band council businesses will be tax free for us so we will shop in their “Off Shore” stores. Just like the old trading posts that destroyed our way of life. The people will have to pay all municipal taxes to run the community, or get kicked out. Provincial and federal taxes will become applicable to every native. This is already in place in some places in the USA.
The business partners, the illegal band councils, provinces and federal governments will invest our Indian trust funds in shady businesses and we will never see the profits.
Useless hotels will bring white “tourists” to gawk at us! Investments will be made with ‘their’ interests in mind. The illegal band council will become the only voice in Kahnawake as they will control everything.
Tir investments are meant to collapse and the funds will disappear. Profits will be unseen, untraceable and in off shore private accounts, just like many political leaders of Quebec and Canada and their international partners. The $1.67 trillion GDP [gross domestic product, value of the corporation of Canada] is the ‘Indian Trust Fund’. They are in debt to us. We own them.
A 10 foot high fence will surround kahnawake to keep from seeing us so as not to distract the high end shoppers. Those few sell-outs who want to be tourist attractions are welcome to leave to be “pseudo’ Indians. They will speak mohawk with a soft ‘l’ rather than the rolling ‘r’. They are anxious to forfeit their birthright to being natural kanienkehaka’onwe whose duty forever is to carry out the kaianerekowa and teiohateh.
Genocide at its highest! How does bringing in Amazon, Target, hotels, casinos, tourists and thousands of foreign workers to our land and community fulfill us as a proud sovereign We won’t be hired because we refuse to speak French.
We are trying to survive the way creation intended. Not as pop culturalists! Our ancestors and descendents will think we’d all become mindless traitor puppets just like the government’s illegal corporate band councillors! Over 99% of us do not want to betray our ancestors and unborn children for whom we are trying to set an example on how to be a kanienkehaka. We were not born to be slaves to the white man, such as cashiers, half naked waitresses serving drinks in the mall bars or victims of human trafficking. Capitalism on steroids! The continued murders and genocide of our minds and bodies is the road that the government, corporations and their illegal band council agents are paving for us, to get our land and become an actual country. Their vision is money and power for a few and disable and make the rest invisible.
kahnawake will be a municipality. Government and churches have taught us how to mistrust one another. So while we stop each other from succeeding, the Canadian government system is succeeding. Our taxes will pay for straight lined paved streets with curbs, pseudo Indian street signs and numbers on our houses so the repo man can easily find us.
Our ancestors were smarter. They built long houses that could be shared by families and dead end streets to keep strangers out so we would not lose our children.
Visitors had to come miles away and ask for permission to enter our settlement. They would only be allowed into a small fortified area as our guests. Our villages were protected from the eyes of the invaders so we could be safe and private. We’ll be back to selling trinkets by the roadside and in front of the church and doing some dances for them at the ‘endangered species’ get togethers . Longhouse festivals have always been private.
PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE TRADITIONAL MOHAWKS WHO OWN EVERYTHING!
For instant money we could put tolls on all the roads, seaway, bridges, railways and other unpaid for intruding structures that are already here.
We need the kaianerekowa to protect us and everything about us.
Soon we will be living under the flashing neon lights of the Mercier Bridge. During rush hour we can make a few dollars from commuters on their way to work.
Incorporation means it’s not owned by a person. It’s controlled by a foreign entity, run by the Vatican, who own all the corporations.
The few corporate ‘mohawks’ might be so embarrassed about the presence of their poor resister families. They are trying to send us away to live on algonquin land up north to cut our ties altogether. We traditionals of course would not be identified as Mohawks or kanienkehaka. We’d be known as “Mohawk metis”.
Those running the malls will have corporate jets, fancy clothes, super shiny shoes and fancy carpetbagger friends. Their only job is to tell their handlers, “You want more of the land and resources of our distant onkwehonweh relatives? Gimmie that pen and I’ll sign that paper. And remember to fortify that fence around us to keep out those savage lawless rebels we kicked out a long time ago. They can’t come in without a pass unless they agree to grovel at our heels . We got them trained to stay quiet through threats like losing their jobs and kids”.
These puppet agents have business names and can say a few words of old onkwehonweh that are made up by their resident old-word vomitters. All their maids and workers are whites who have to speak a bit of newspeak Mohawk.
Queenie, come and pick up your kids, put them in your yacht and get them out of here!
Bon Scott of ACDC says it perfectly, “We gotta get them outta here!”: “There was a friend of mine on murder. And the judge’s gavel fell. Jury found him guilty. Gave him 16 years in hell. He said, “I ain’t spending my life here. I ain’t living alone. ain’t breaking no rock on the chain gang. I’m breaking out and heading home. Gonna make a jail break. I’m looking towards the sky. Gonna make a jail break. Man I wish i could fly. It’s all in the name of liberty. it was all in the name of liberty. Got to be free. Jail break. Had more than I can take. Jail break. 16 years. Jail break. You better get me out of here. He said he’d seen his woman being followed with by another man. She was down and he was up. He had a gun in his hand. And the bullets started flying everywhere. And people started to scream. There was a big man laying on the ground with a hole in his body, where his life had been. But it was all in the name of liberty. Yes it was all in the name of liberty. You just got to be free. Jail break. Jail break.”

We are the kahnistensera, Mohawk mothers, who have responsibilities from the kaianerekowa, great law, and teiohateh, two row, which have existed on turtle island since time immemorial. All the land and infrastructure thereon are for us to care for, since the beginning time and for all eternity. All governments and their institutions throughout turtle island know and acknowledge this.
OUR INUIT BROTHERS & SISTERS ARE STRUGGLING IN CITIES.
Our duty as the natural people is to care for the land and the people who have been placed here by creation. Many are living on the streets of tioni tiotiakon temporarily known by the trespassers as montreal because they are homeless. Some are young. Many are old, frail and require medical attention, food, warmth, clean water and hygiene. Today some are dying on the streets in below freezing temperatures. It’s a life and death matter.
Some inuit and indigenous have died. There are empty buildings at mcgill university which are available. They are lit, heated and can provide adequate shelter for these extreme conditions. We must all help these people. This ground and vacant structures belong to the kanistensera. The name McGill will be changed to a proper kanienkehaka name.
We demand the key to the royal victoria hospital. Contact us at email@example.com immediately. We will arrange to meet in front of the rvh as soon as possible.
In the meantime, kahnistensera suggest that the homeless check into nearby hotels and send the bill to mcgil university, or the mayor of the city, or the governments of canada and quebec.
ON BEHALF OF THE CHILDREN OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE, OUR ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANT OF ALL INDIGENOUS PEOPLE THR0UGHOUT THE WORLD, WE ASK FOR YOUR COOPERATION.

On November 10, 2021, a rally was held in front of the Allan Memorial Institute (AMI) bringing together family members of MK-Ultra experiments survivors, Duplessis orphans, McGill students and the Milton Park citizens’ committee to support the kanien’keha:ka kahnistensera’s (Mohawk Mothers) opposition to renovating the ex-Royal Victoria Hospital and AMIsites. Later that evening, the 50+ protestors accompanied the kanien’keha:ka kahnistensera’s as they shared their message in a 10 minute hearing with the non-decisional commissioners of the Office de Consultation publique de Montréal. This message, also transmitted to the responsible parties via an injunction T-1696-21 Nov. 9, 2021 filed in the Federal Court of Canada, stressed that: 1) no project can start without the permission of the kanien’keha:ka kahnistensera, as the traditional caretakers of kanien’keha:ka territory according to the precolonial Great Law of Peace, kaianerekowa, recognized by Section 35 of the Constitution Act of Canada, 1982; 2) the Royal Victoria Hospital and AMI sit on the location of the precolonial Iroquoian village and very likely contains archeological remains of interest to the kanien’keha:ka people. This land was never ceded by the Iroquois, as no land deed was shown to prove that such a transfer existed. The Société Québécoise des Infrastructures (SQI), City of Montreal, Hugh Allan family, and McGill University have thus bought, sold and handled stolen land; 3) strong evidence exists to support allegations that indigenous and non-indigenous adults and children would be buried on the site of the AMI, as a result of the psychiatric experiments of Dr. Ewen Cameron.
WHERE THESE “MIND CONTROLLERS” BELONG.
On November 11, 2021, the kanien’keha:ka kahnistensera noticed new materials on the website of the Office de Consultation publique de Montréal, which were posted without giving notice to the kahnistensera. One letter dated November 9, 2020 from McGill University’s Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) to the Office de Consultation publique addressed the kahnistensera’s concerns, and contained a clear commitment to allowing the necessary forensic and ground-penetrating investigations to happen to assess the presence of human remains on the site of the AMI: “‘no reconciliation is possible until the truth is known’, the letter said. Therefore, we are ready to collaborate with government and Indigenous community representatives so that the proper investigations can be conducted”. Even though the kahnistensera approve this commitment, they were not directly addressed in the letter nor notified that it had been written. They have a strong concern about who exactly is targeted in the expression “Indigenous community representatives”, as the traditional Great Law of Peace, kaianerekowa, still in effect on the traditional homeland of the kanien’keha:ka nation, holds the kahnistensera responsible for caretaking the land, and nobody else.
Two other letters had also been sent on November 9, 2021, from the SQI to the Band Council offices of Kahnawake and Kanehsatake, inviting Band Councillors to collaborate on exchanging information on potential unmarked graves on the site of the AMI that the SQI claims to own. The two letters clearly circumvented and invisibilized the authority of the traditional caretakers of kanien’keha:ka territory, the kahnistensera, who had raised the allegations in the first place, and who are solely responsible for the land. Band Councils were forced upon Indigenous peoples by the Indian Act, and the resistance of traditional kanien’keha:ka government to this colonial government system was brutally crushed as the RCMP stormed the Akwesasne Longhouse in 1899 to impose it, killing chief Jake Fire and seizing wampums and traditional regalia. Given that Band Councils funnel funds from the Federal Government and assume control of Indigenous communities despite extremely low participation in tribal elections, they are not recognized as part of the traditional kanien’keha:ka nation, and they are in a conflict of interest that impedes any possibility of them being involved in the search for unmarked graves.
THE MEN’S FIRE ARE GONNA CLEAN UP THEIR ‘BRAINWASHING’ ACT!
This letter is to notify the proper protocol that will be followed now that the necessity of an investigation was acknowledged by McGill University and the SQI. In the current search for unmarked graves in the grounds of the Mohawk Institute in Brantfort, Ontario, near ohsweken (Six Nations of the Grand River), great care was taken to avoid the local Band Council from being involved, given their conflict of interest as representatives of the Federal government. Instead, a group composed of survivors and grassroots traditional Indigenous peoples –women, “kahnistensera” –, was formed to supervise and monitor the investigation. The same process will be followed in the upcoming ground penetrant radar investigation on the grounds of the AMI. A group composed of MK-Ultra survivors and their families, as well as the Secretariate of the kanien’keha:ka kahnistensera (Mohawk mothers), including representatives from every kanien’keha:ka clan (bear, turtle, wolf), will lead the investigation under the traditional Indigenous legal framework of the rotinonshonni (Iroquois) confederacy: the Great Law of Peace (kaianerekowa). Therefore, all future correspondence must be addressed to the Secretariate of the kanien’keha:ka kahnistensera. To ensure no conflict of interest, the role of the SQI, the Government of Canada, the City of Montreal and McGill University will be limited to allowing access to the grounds, financing the investigation using funds borrowed from the Iroquois Trust Fund in the 19th Century, and facilitating the investigation by releasing all files concerning medical experimentation programs at the Royal Victoria Hospital and AMI.

On November 10 at 7.10 pm the men’s fire and the kanistensera – Mohawk Mothers – met with the McGill-Royal Victoria makeover commissioners via Zoom [VIDEO BELOW]. According to kaianerekowa protocol, the men’s fire and Mohawk mothers informed the Commissioners that there is the possible presence of unmarked graves in certain portions of the ex-hospital site. All work on the McGill Royal Vic project must immediately stop as it could be a crime scene. The Truth and Reconciliation commission’s final report states: “no reconciliation is possible until the truth is known.” McGill stated that on their blog, ‘We are ready to collaborate with government and band council agents of Canada [the genociders] so that the proper investigations can be conducted”!!
The sovereign Mohawk mothers secretariat will oversee this task by retrieving all medical experimentation funded by the US and Canadian military and intelligence agencies. files related to Dr. Cameron’s and his colleagues mind control experimental work. This will be funded by the new vic project until it is totally completed to the satisfaction of the Mohawk mothers.
The men’s fire and kanistensera also informed the Commissioners that no permission was given to build the McGill Royal Vic project or any entity which is on unceded kaneienkehaka land. This area is known as “thegnondat”.
Without asking for the permission of the men’s fire and kanistensera, the SQI who call themselves owners of the land, appointed the Canadian government band councils to undertake the investigation for these communities. The band councils were set up in 1924 to carry out the residential school genocide program. This is a gross conflict of interest to cover up their role in turning indigenous children over to the macabre mind control death programs of McGill University and others. We are the sovereigns of turtle island and speak according to the kaianerekowa. Section 35 of the Constitution Act of Canada 1982 supports the kaianerekowa as the supreme law of turtle island. All other laws are subservient. The kaianerekowa controls this entire process.
Commissioners began the hearing in French, even though we requested that they speak to us in the intermediate language of English. We began speaking in Mohawk and translated it for them into English. This is the correct protocol throughout the world. McGill has decided to ask the band council genociders to oversee this process. As noted, the band council agents of Canada have no standing except to help coverup of murder that they facilitated. See video of Zoom meeting with Commissioners:

SOCIÉTÉ QUÉBÉCOISE DES INFRASTRUCTURES, MCGILL UNIVERSITY OFFICE OF THE PRINCIPLE & VICE CHANCELLOR, MAIRIE D’ARRONDISSEMENT DE VILLE-MARIE, and STANTEC INC.
APPLICANT’S WRITTEN REPRESENTATIONS
1. The kaianerehkó:wa, great law of peace, is the original constitution of the onkwehonweh, the original rotinonhshonni (Iroquois) people. Section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982, recognizes and affirms existing aboriginal rights, e.g. the kaianerehkó:wa and teiohateh, two row wampum, as traditional legal frameworks for unceded rotinoshionni (Iroquois) territories. The kaianerehkó:wa and teiohateh, apply in this case and every other case in this territory.
2. According to Wampum 44 of the kaianerehkó:wa, the precolonial constitution of the rotino’shonni iroquois confederacy, every original indigenous woman is a caretaker of the land on behalf of the future generations: kononkwe ne konwatsirineh ne kanakerasera. ne enkotiyatakwehnyyokeh ne onwentsa. ronnonkwe tahnon ne konnonkwe ne enhatihsereh tsiniyakotaroten ne ronwatihnistenha, “The lineal descent of the people of the Five Nations shall run in the female line. Women shall be considered the progenitors of the Nation. They shall own the land, and the soil. Men and women shall follow the status of their mothers” (see Appendix 1).
3. Given their status as the progenitors of all life on onowarekeh (turtle island) since the beginning of life on earth and as the original owners of the land following Indigenous law, the kahnistensera must give permission for anything to be done to their traditional unceded homeland.
4. It is with this understanding that we original peoples seek the assistance of the Canadian judicial system in the peaceable resolution of preventing a miscarriage of justice on our land and resolve this dispute between us and your subjects. Nothing can be done on any part of turtle island without the permission of its sovereign indigenous people, as stated in Section 35 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This court is bound by the Charter of Rights and must affirm the concerns found in section 35.
5. File no. 1217400001 of the City of Montreal provides for the demolition, construction, transformation of buildings, and the repurposing of the surrounding on the site of the Allan Memorial Institute, Ravenscrag gardens, and Royal Victoria Hospital (allotments 1 341 184, 1 341 185, 1 341 182, and 1 354 912). See Appendix 2.
6. The Société Québécoise des Infrastructures has allowed McGill university to plan a repurposing project for the site of the Royal Victoria Hospital, in a plan called “The New Vic”.
7. The Société Québécoise des Infrastructures Allan Memorial Institute has commissioned Stantec inc. to explore and plan demolition, construction and landscaping work on the site of the Allan Memorial Institute and the Ravenscrag gardens.
8. The respondents have illegally bought and sold stolen Indigenous property.
9. As the caretakers of thequenondah (two mountains beside each other/mount royal), we thus demand the immediate suspension of all reconstruction plans for the Royal Victoria Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute sites on the campus of McGill University, for the following reasons: the site is unceded kanien’kehá:ka territory; the site contains archaeological remains from the original precolonial Iroquoian village; the grounds of the Allan Memorial Institute must be investigated for potential unmarked graves of atrocities committed during the MK-Ultra program, between 1954 and 1963 by the CIA and Canada.
10. The kanien’kehá:ka land on which the Royal Victoria Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute sites are located are said to have first been transferred by the Sulpicians to private owner Pierre Raimbault as “concession 637” in 1708. No information has been provided to us attesting to the Sulpicians having acquired the said land from the rotino’shonni:onwe iroquoian peoples who have lived on this land since time immemorial. Jacques Cartier first encountered our rotino’shonni:onwe ancestors in 1535 and indicated that the village of “Hochelaga” was located at thequenondah (mount royal). Given our people’s practice of safeguarding the environment by moving our villages regularly throughout our territories, the village had been temporarily left to natural regeneration when Samuel de Champlain came back to the site, in 1603. When our people returned, they saw a group of strangers had moved onto our site and learned that they called the settlement “Ville Marie”. Unable to use the land to meet regularly with indigenous peoples from all directions of turtle island, our people renamed the location tionni’tio’tià:kon, “the place where the people separated”. As no proper land deed or certificate of cession of this land has ever been shown to us, the site is considered unceded kanien’kehá:ka land, as publicly acknowledged both by McGill University and the City of Montreal.
11. Only the kanien’kehá:ka’onwe, the “people forever of the flint”, can make decisions on the use of our land, in accordance with the kaianerehkó:wa (great peace), our ancestral constitution which supersedes colonial legislation following 8 according to Section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982. As unceded kanien’kehá:ka territory, the valid legal frameworks on thequenondah are the kaianerehkó:wa, accompanied by the two historical agreements between the rotinoshionni confederacy and the British Crown: the teiohateh (two row wampum) and the silver covenant chain (Appendix 3).
12. McGill campus on thequenondah is widely acknowledged as the original site of many of the precolonial iroquoian villages today referred to as “hochelaga”. As stated in Arkeos’ 2016 archeological survey (Appendix 4), the large number of precolonial indigenous burial sites throughout the thequenondah and Royal Victoria Hospital sites demonstrates that the remains of our indigenous ancestors lie beneath its surface. As their heirs, it is our duty to determine how these crucial archeological sites will be treated in any change to the thequenondah site. It is an extreme offence to disturb our ancestors.
13. In addition to archeological remains, the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera have been aware of allegations that indigenous and/or non-indigenous children may be buried in the vicinity of the Henry Lewis Morgan pool, and in adjacent grounds of the Ravenscrag gardens of the Allan Memorial Institute. The Henry Lewis Morgan pool was built in 1961 during Dr. Ewen Cameron’s unethical psychiatric experimentations on mind control, carried within the Allan Memorial Institute between 1954 and 1963, and funded by the Canadian government and the CIA’s MK-Ultra project (Appendix 5).
14. An audio taped conversation under oath with 80-year-old Winnipeg resident Lana Ponting (Appendix 6), is one of the few remaining victims of these experiments, has confirmed several aspects of these allegations. Lana Ponting has stressed three points: 1) That indigenous peoples were victims of these experiments, as she remembers seeing at least one indigenous individual receiving intense shock treatment in the Allan Memorial Institute during her stay, in April 1958; 2) That underaged children were victims of these experiments, as Lana Ponting witnessed many minor individuals in the building, and as she was herself 16 years old at the time. It is also public knowledge that several MK-Ultra sub-projects included psychiatric experiments on unwitting children (Sub-projects 102, 103, 177, and 122, see Appendix 7); 3) That the rumour that the experiments’ victims were buried in the Ravenscrag gardens surrounding the Allan Memorial Institute was already in circulation amongst its patients as early as 1958. Notably, Lana Ponting recalls that suspicious activities were conducted outside the building at night. Lana Ponting has obtained a letter her doctor attesting that she is of sound mind. Lana Ponting and many other family members of psychiatric experiments at McGill University have strong suspicions that unmarked graves, potentially including indigenous children, will be uncovered beneath the grounds of Ravenscrag.
15. The kanien’kehá:ka caretakers of thequenondah take these allegations very seriously. Indigenous children who were kidnapped from their families and put in Residential Schools were legally deemed “wards” of the State of Canada. Given this status, many of these children were used for experiments, including on nutrition and starvation (Appendix 8). It must also be noted that before coming to the Allan Memorial Institute, Dr. Ewen Cameron practiced psychiatry in Brandon, Manitoba, where he likely had access to indigenous patients. Another important 9 fact bolstering our suspicions is that underage Duplessis Orphans, who had a similar status as indigenous children in Residential Schools (e.g. “wards of the State”), were subjected to extreme psychiatric torture experiments in psychiatric wards. Many died and were interred in unmarked graves, including numerous human remains found in the pigsty near St-Jean-de-Dieu hospital, in Montreal (Appendix 9). Electroshock torture was also practiced on children in residential schools, as the revealed by the Ontario Provincial Police’s inquiry on Fort Albany’s St Anne’s Residential School (Appendix 10).
16. A zone potentially containing unmarked graves has been identified (Appendix 11). Before unmarked graves of indigenous children were actually found across Canada, the widely circulated stories of their existence among indigenous peoples were dismissed as rumors.
17. The kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera, careholders of thequenondah are concerned that the current Royal Victoria Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute rehabilitation project could destroy evidence of the unmarked graves of their siblings, depriving them of proper identification, repatriation and burial. It is McGill University’s responsibility to provide the funds and the expertise necessary for an immediate and thorough kanien’kehá:ka led investigation of the Allan Memorial Institute site, which must be considered a site of crimes against humanity. All files concerning MK-Ultra experiments conducted in McGill University’s psychiatry department must be released without delay and made available to the public without restriction.
18. According to Calls to Action 71 to 76 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, recovering unmarked graves of Indigenous children is a top priority for the state of Canada to avoid continuously carrying out crimes against humanity.
19. Before any construction can take place, the site must be thoroughly investigated by a kanien’kehá:ka led forensic and archaeological team to confirm the existence of unmarked graves or other evidence of unlawful activity. All of which is respectfully submitted this 8th day of November, 2021 by
OBJECT: Public Consultation on the Former Royal Victoria Hospital. This brief was served on McGill Royal Victoria Secretariat on October 15, 2021.
FROM: The rotisken’raketeh of kahnawake, ohsweken/six nations of the grand river, akwesasne, and kanehsatake, on behalf of the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera (the mohawk mothers).
ATTENTION: Laurent Maurice Lafontant, Adjoint administratif, Office de Consultation Publique de Montréal 1550 Metcalfe Street, office 1414. Montreal, H3A 1X6 ocpm.qc.ca/Royal-Victoria; 514 872 8510; 1 833 215 9314
ABSTRACT: The kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera (mohawk women), “the umbilical cord connection between mother and child” and between “human race and mother earth” the caretakers of thequenondah (two mountains/mount royal), demand the immediate suspension of all reconstruction plans for the Royal Victoria Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute sites on the campus of McGill University, for the following reasons:
1]The site is unceded kanien’kehá:ka territory; 2) The site contains archeological remains from the original precolonial Iroquoian village; 3) The grounds of the Allan Memorial Institute must be investigated for potential unmarked graves and proof of atrocities committed during the MK-Ultra program, between 1954 and 1963.
This brief will be presented on November 10, 2021, via Zoom for 10 minutes, to the Office de Consultation Publique de Montréal. It will be presented by members of the rotisken’raketeh (men’s council fire) of kahnawake, ohsweken/six nations of the grand river, akwesasne, and kanehsatake. The video of this meeting will be posted on MNN.
Following traditional protocol, the rotisken’raketeh will carry the words of the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera (mohawk mothers), who are the caretakers of onowarekeh (turtle island), in custody for the tahatikonhsontóntie, “the future generations still in the ground of mother earth”. This brief is an objection to the plans of the corporation of McGill University and its affiliated institutions to violate the circle of life on our ancestral land at thequenondah (mount royal). As members of the rotino’shonni iroquois confederacy, we have the following vested interest in the Royal Victoria Hospital reconstruction project under the following:
According to the kaia’nere:kowa (great peace), which is the precolonial constitution of the rotino’shonni iroquois confederacy, the kahnistensera (mothers) are the progenitors of all life on onowarekeh (turtle island) since the beginning of life on earth. Their duty is to carry out the will of creation, embodied in the original circle of 49 families (tekentiohkwenhoksta). Our alliance protocol, the teiohateh (two row wampum, Appendix 1), provides that we survive and coexist with all life as siblings with our mother, the earth. All of turtle island is the unceded birthright of the onkwehonweh (original people) to caretake future generations1.
On September 12, 2015, a Notice of Seizure of McGill University was sent by kahentinetha, a kanien’kehá:ka woman of the waksarawakeh clan, to McGill’s Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Suzanne Fortier (Appendix 2). Addressed were multiple violations of the kaia’nere:kowa (great peace) by McGill University, whose campus is on unceded kanien’kehá:ka territory, and was built using funds borrowed from the rotino’shonni:onwe, and which were never repaid. The kaia’nere:kowa supersedes the Constitution and Charter of Rights of the corporation of Canada both historically and legally. McGill acknowledges on its own blog that its campus is located on unceded indigenous land. Despite McGill’s creation of a Task Force on Indigenous Studies and Indigenous Education in 2016 (of appointees or employees by McGill), no official response was provided to this Notice of Seizure. A second letter (Appendix 3) was thus sent in May 2021, informing McGill’s Board of Governors that their failure to respond to the 2015 Notice of Seizure meant that they admitted by default that McGill illegally sits on kanien’kehá:ka land. Unless McGill University abides by the kaia’nere:kowa (great peace) and the teiohateh (two row wampum), it is considered as trespassing kanien’kehá:ka land. No agreement is valid without the consensus of the original sovereigns of turtle island. The kahionni 44 (hiawatha belt) of the kaia’nere:kowa provides the duties of the women as caretakers: kononkwe ne konwatsirineh ne kanakerasera. ne enkotiyatakwehnyyokeh ne onwentsa. ronnonkwe tahnon ne konnonkwe ne enhatihsereh tsiniyakotaroten ne ronwatihnistenha. “Women shall be considered the progenitors of the people. They are the prime caretakers of the land and the soil. Men and women shall follow the status of their mothers”.
The private “indigenous consultation” firm Acosys hired by McGill University has not received permission from the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera to repurpose our land known as “the Royal Victoria Hospital site”. This permission is the first step towards any planning. The kahnistensera are still waiting to be provided with the information on who was improperly consulted on their behalf. Acosys must use the proper kaia’nere:kowa protocol. As caretakers of thequenondah, including the site of the Royal Victoria Hospital and Allan Memorial Institute, the kahnistensera hereby inform you that our protocol has been violated and that the project cannot proceed.
Our demands are based on the following considerations:
1-The kanien’kehá:ka land on which the Royal Victoria Hospital site is located is said to have first been transferred by the Sulpicians to private owner Pierre Raimbault as “concession 637” in 1708. No information has been provided to us attesting to the Sulpicians having acquired the said land from the rotino’shonni:onwe iroquoian peoples who have lived on this land since time immemorial. Jacques Cartier first encountered our rotino’shonni:onwe ancestors in 1535 (Appendix 4) and indicated that the village of “Hochelaga” was located at thequenondah (mount royal). Given our people’s practice of safeguarding the environment by moving our villages regularly throughout our territories, the village had been temporarily left to natural regeneration when Samuel de Champlain came back to the site, in 1603. When our people returned, they saw a group of strangers had moved onto our site and learned that they called the settlement “Ville Marie”. Unable to use the land to meet regularly with indigenous peoples from all directions of turtle island, our people renamed the location tionni’tio’tià:kon, “the place where the people separated”. This name indicates that the kanien’kehá:ka people could no longer meet on this site, because it had been unlawfully occupied without notice by the kanatiens, “those who squat on our land.” As no proper land deed or certificate of cession of this land has ever been shown to us, the site is considered unceded kanien’kehá:ka land, as often publicly acknowledged both by McGill University and the City of Montreal.
2-Only the kanien’kehá:ka’onwe, the “people forever of the flint”, can make decisions on the use of our land, in accordance with the kaia’nere:kowa (great peace), our ancestral constitution which supersedes all colonial legislation. In the absence of any proof of the land being ceded, the only juridical foundations of the colonial occupation of onowarekeh (turtle island) are racist ideologies: the right of conquest and the right of discovery. These false doctrines underlie the Europeans’ invalid right to commit genocide of our people to the present day. Under the kaia’nere:kowa, we have a right to survive by any means. As unceded kanien’kehá:ka territory, the only valid legal framework on thequenondah is the kaia’nere:kowa, accompanied by the two historical agreements between the rotinoshionni confederacy and the British Crown: the teiohateh (two row) and the silver covenant chain (Appendix 5).
3-McGill campus on thequenondah is widely acknowledged as the original site of many of the precolonial iroquoian villages today referred to as “hochelaga”. As stated in Arkeos’ 2016 archeological survey (Appendix 6), the large number of precolonial indigenous burial sites throughout the thequenondah and Royal Victoria Hospital sites demonstrates that the remains of our indigenous ancestors lie beneath its surface. As their heirs, it is our duty to determine how these crucial archeological sites will be treated in any change to the thequenondah site. It is an extreme offence to disturb our ancestors.
4- In 1847, McGill College cashed a loan of £2000 ($8000) from the Iroquois Trust Fund. This fund, intended to compensate the use of aboriginal lands, was kept in trust by the Federal government under the racist pretext that indigenous peoples were unable to manage their own funds. This sum, which built part of the McGill campus, was never paid back to the rotinoshionni confederacy. With 10% compound interest, the amount owed today is $5,584,800,717.46, based on the value of the gold standard at that time (Appendix 7). This full amount must be immediately remitted to the rotinoshionni to stop the accumulation of interest which is compounded from sunrise to sunset every day.
5- In addition to archeological remains, the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera have been aware of allegations that indigenous and/or non-indigenous children may be buried in the vicinity of the Henry Lewis Morgan pool, and in adjacent grounds of the Ravenscrag gardens of the Allan Memorial Institute. The Henry Lewis Morgan pool was built in 1961 during Dr. Ewen Cameron’s unethical psychiatric experimentations on mind control, carried within the Allan Memorial Institute between 1954 and 1963, and funded by the Canadian government and the CIA’s MK-Ultra project.
An audio taped conversation with 80-year-old Winnipeg resident Lana Ponting, who is one of the few remaining victims of these experiments, has confirmed several aspects of these allegations. Lana Ponting has stressed three points: 1) That indigenous peoples were victims of these experiments, as she remembers seeing at least one indigenous individual receiving intense shock treatment in the Allan Memorial Institute during her stay, in April 1958; 2) That underaged children were victims of these experiments, as Lana Ponting witnessed many minor individuals in the building, and as she was herself 16 years old at the time. It is also public knowledge that several MK-Ultra sub-projects included psychiatric experiments on unwitting children (Sub-projects 102, 103, 177, and 122, see Appendix 8); 3) That the rumor that the experiments’ victims were buried in the Ravenscrag gardens surrounding the Allan Memorial Institute was already in circulation amongst its patients as early as 1958. Notably, Lana Ponting recalls that suspicious activities were conducted outside the building at night. Lana Ponting has agreed to have her eye-witness testimony included in this brief (Appendix 9) and mentioned on tape that her doctor will provide a letter attesting that she is of sound mind. Lana Ponting and many other family members of psychiatric experiments at McGill University have strong suspicions that unmarked graves, potentially including indigenous children, will be uncovered beneath the grounds of Ravenscrag.
The kanien’kehá:ka caretakers of thequenondah take these allegations very seriously, as should McGill’s Board of Governors. Indigenous children who were kidnapped from their families and put in Residential Schools were legally deemed “wards” of the State of Canada. Given this status, many of these children were used for experiments, including on nutrition and starvation (Appendix 10). It must also be noted that before coming to the Allan Memorial Institute, Dr. Ewen Cameron practiced psychiatry in Brandon, Manitoba, where he likely had access to indigenous patients. Another important fact bolstering our suspicions is that underage Duplessis Orphans, who had a similar status as indigenous children in Residential Schools (e.g. “wards of the State”), were subjected to extreme psychiatric torture experiments in psychiatric wards. Many died and were interred in unmarked graves, including numerous human remains found in the pigsty near St-Jean-de-Dieu hospital, in Montreal (Appendix 11). Electroshock torture was also practiced on children in residential schools, as the revealed by the Ontario Provincial Police’s inquiry on Fort Albany’s St Anne’s Residential School (Appendix 12) 2 .
The families of the indigenous victims of mass murder want closure. To investigate these allegations of unmarked graves around the Allan Memorial Institute of McGill university, the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera have set up an investigation team that includes a surveyor, a geologist and a search dog, assisted by Geoview Pro software. A zone potentially containing unmarked graves has been identified (Appendix 13). Before unmarked graves of indigenous children were actually found across Canada, the widely circulated stories of their existence among indigenous peoples were dismissed as rumors.
The kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera, careholders of thequenondah are concerned that the current Royal Victoria Hospital rehabilitation project could destroy evidence of the unmarked graves of their siblings, depriving them of proper identification, repatriation and burial. It is McGill University’s responsibility to provide the funds and the expertise necessary for an immediate and thorough kanien’kehá:ka led investigation of the Allan Memorial Institute site, which must be considered a site of crimes against humanity. All files concerning MK-Ultra experiments conducted in McGill University’s psychiatry department must be released without delay and made available to the public without restriction.
Considering the above points, on behalf of the kaia’nere:kowa and in the name of children of the past, present, and future, the kahnistensera careholders of thequenondah, formally request:
a. The immediate termination of any work or planning activities concerning construction on site. 2 On St Anne’s Residential School, see “St. Anne’s Residential School [1941-72] Fort Albany, Cochrane District, Ontario, Canada, “Turtle Island” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcgLDvR32p0
b. That McGill University, now considered a potential crime scene by the kahnistensera, is shut down within 28 days (wahnita, “one moon”).
c. That the site be thoroughly investigated by a kanien’kehá:ka led forensic and archaeological team to confirm the existence of unmarked graves or other evidence of unlawful activity.
d. That all people and institutions responsible for the suffering of patients in MK-Ultra experiments in the Allan Memorial Institute be charged with crimes against humanity.
e. That the kaia’nere:kowa (great peace) is the only legal framework currently applicable on site, and that the kanien’kehá:ka kahnistensera have the final say in any decision pertaining to the land. McGill University and the Royal Victoria Hospital are the property of the kanien’kehá:ka people, as they have been built with our funds and resources.
f. That McGill University should be renamed with a proper kanien’kehá:ka description, and be governed by the kahnistensera to address and remedy the inappropriate connection of this institution to John McGill, a slave owner and trader, and a thief of kanien’kehá:ka land and funds; kanien’kehá:ka place names shall replace all names on campus.
g. That the corporation of McGill University, the Allen Memorial Institute and all affiliate institutions engaged in the raping, pillaging and murder of our mother earth and its children immediately cease and desist their occupation of onowarekeh (turtle island).
h. That the corporation of McGill University, the Allan Memorial Institute and all affiliate institutions respect the kaia’nere:kowa (great peace) and the teiohateh (two row) as the basis of our relationship to the earth. tehiakwen’wehnniokenteh, “We have spoken”.
Here’s an old classic critique of demon Capitalism by Max Fleischer’s 1936 cartoon “Greedy Humpty Dumpty”. “Higher, higher. more bricks”.
MNN. 3 oct. 2021. In politics leaders are supposed to lead by example. Trudeau’s stroll on the beach during the first Indigenous “Truth and Reconciliation Day” promotes the horrors of 150 years of genocide. We sense that Trudeau gave us the finger and that genocide will continue. His remedy is for us to reconcile with the murderers, become Canadian citizens to complete the genocide of us and our culture. Remaining onkwehonweh of our homeland, turtle island, is our protection.
MONTREAL ELECTION 2021
It appears that on tianni tiotiakon, [Montreal] which is acknowledged kanienkehaka Mohawk land, there is an epidemic of ‘tourette’s syndrome’ among politicians and candidates running in the current Montreal municipal election. They blurt out uncontrolled sounds that they don’t realize are offensive to us. A ‘diffuse axonal’ head injury victim says that ‘amnesia’ is the fastest growing disease in the country. “Nobody remembers shit about anything”, unless it gets them a vote.
CODERRE DUMPED RAW SEWAGE INTO THE KANIATERONWANO:ONWE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER.
Candidate former Shit Mayor Denis Coderre says about the grandiose development proposed for Mount Royal on unceded Mohawk land in the middle of the city, “There should be no question of allowing some people to get the views because they have the means to live in a tower!” He also is campaigning to return the torn down statue of the father of Canada, the First Prime Minister John A. MacDonald, to the center of the city. He wants to affirm MacDonald’s words in Parliament that, in effect, “all original people are savages and that they should be whitenised”. Today, a foreigner ordering this is guilty of an act of war and hate crime against humanity and should be tried by the world court at The Hague.
In effect, Coderre’s spin is, “That’s how we are going to remember how degenerate he was and the genocide he authored on indigenous people” to wipe us out from the face of the earth. Sounds like members of today’s governments. Coderre hopes someone will put a statue of him in the city for his degeneracy in dumping half the city’s effluent into the St. Lawrence River during his term as mayor. Our culture does not welcome statues of such enemies of mankind on Mohawk land.
Quebec Premier Francois Legault refused to commemorate the September 29 “Truth and Reconciliation Day’ as, “What happened this week will not be what happens in the following ones. . . No holiday. We need productivity in Quebec!” Dissolving the government would be very productive.
