MNN. Sept. 2018. Over 100 rotinoshonni [Iroquois] were viciously beaten by the New York State Police, as this video shows. The United States court system totally ignored and denied justice and truth from being presented.
ON MAY 8, 1997 WE STARTED A PEOPLES’ FIRE IN SUPPORT OF ROTINOSHONNI [IROQUOIS CONFEDERACY] OPPOSITION TO NEW YORK STATE’S ILLEGAL ATTEMPT TO COLLECT TAXES FROM THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF TURTLE ISLAND.
We have exhausted the entire United States court system for justice. Now we are serving an Application to the International Court of Justice in The Hague of 28 pages plus the annexes, the Gayanerekowa great law and video disk.
Each of the Onondaga 15 will provide oral presentations personally, and other witnesses will provide testimony in writing and orally to The International Court of Justice at The Hague and to the United Nations in New York City in support of this Application.
SUMMARY OF APPLICATION. THIS HAPPENED TO US.
TO: INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE
RE: APPLICATION, INSTITUTING PROCEEDINGS
Filed in the Registry of the Court
Case by 15 sovereign onkwehonweh [the original peoples of turtle island] of the rotinoshonni, Iroquois Confederacy, concerning grave Injustices. Reason: No Equal Justice Under Law, No Due Process and No Fair Hearing/No Fair Trial in the United States court system for the onkwehonweh.
(Andrew Jones, sovereign, et al. [“Onondaga 15”] vs. United States)
To: Mr. Philippe Couvreur, Registrar, International Court of Justice, Peace Palace, The Hague Netherlands.
THE SOVEREIGN ONKWEHONWEH
This Application Instituting Proceedings is made by the following 15 sovereign onkwehonweh [hereinafter “Onondaga 15”] vs. United States:
Andrew Jones (sovereign), Robert E. Bucktooth, Jr. (sovereign), Cheryl Bucktooth, (sovereign), Robert Bucktooth, III (sovereign), Debby Jones (sovereign), Karen Jones (sovereign), Nikki Jones (sovereign),karoniakata Jones (sovereign), Shawn Jones (sovereign), kahentinetha (sovereign), dyhyneyyks, aka Alfred Logan, Jr. (sovereign), tekarontakeh (sovereign), Ross John (sovereign), Ronald Jones, Jr. (sovereign), Nadine O’Field/Ganonhweih, fka Nadine Bucktooth (sovereign),
- APPLICATION MEMORIAL BY EACH OF THE 15 SOVEREIGN onkwehonweh APPLICANTS, INDIGENOUS PEOPLES [ORIGINAL PEOPLES OF TURTLE ISLAND] OF THE rotinoshonni, IROQUOIS CONFEDERACY [“Onondaga 15”], PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 45 OF THE RULES OF COURT:
THE FIRST QUESTION IS HAS THE ORDER EVER BEEN RESCINDED TO STOP THE ONGOING POLICY OF EXTERMINATING THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF TURTLE ISLAND:
On May 31, 1779, General George Washington, who later became the first President of the United States, wrote the following to his Major General John Sullivan [Annex 9, Annex 1 for electronic review]:
The expedition you are appointed to command is to be directed against the hostile tribes of the six nations [Iroquois Confederacy] of Indians, with their associates and adherents. The immediate objects are the total destruction and devastation of their settlements and the capture of as many prisoners of every age and sex as possible. It will be essential to ruin their crops now in the ground and prevent their planting more. . . . But you will not by any means listen to (any) overture of peace before the total ruin of their settlements is effected. . . .
This command was carried out and continued as United States policy thereafter to this day and was never rescinded.
To carry out this order, the United States set up the infamous prison system called “reservations”. We are killed and separated from each other throughout turtle island where the United States tries to silence, control, impoverish, murder and deny our natural existence as intended by creation.
iontonnheton – the existence of natural life.
kaianerekowa – the great path of peace.
kasastenserakowa sahoiera – the great natural power.
onkwehonweh – the original people of the land.
onowarekeh – turtle island.
rotinoshonni – the people who make the long house, Iroquois Confederacy.
sahoieren – creation.
tekeni teiohateh – the two row wampum.
tekentiokwanhoksta – Circle of 49 original families that formed the basis of rotinoshonni.
tewatatawi – we control our life [sovereign].
tekanehronkwatserah – the mind of nature.
The United States strikes by any means to stop us from surviving as free natural people. They bribe “Indians” who become their citizens or agents to help carry out the policy of genocide. These traitors pledge allegiance to the United States through the Federal Indian Law. According to the kaianerekowa when our people serve as a United States citizen or agent implementing the genocide policies, they are traitors and alienate their birthright as true native people, tehonatonkoton.
The policy of physical and mental extermination of original native peoples continues. Prisons remain. Traitors remain. Poverty remains.
We sought justice in the United States court system related to violations of our human rights by the New York State Police. We received no justice, leading to this Application.
We 15 sovereign onkwehonweh request The International Court of Justice at The Hague to review and expose to the world the United States’ violations and to provide justice in this case. The kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, is the law of turtle island since time immemorial. We 15, men, women, children, and elders, were arrested, viciously beaten, injured, and terrorized by the New York State Police troopers at our peaceable gathering. The United States court system deliberately delayed and denied justice for each of us for over two decades in this case so that these troopers would avoid responsibility for their criminal actions. [Video of beating Annex 1 of this Application, infra]. This computer disc includes everything in this Application and Annex Record, Annexes 1 thru 8, for review electronically. The kaianerekowa [also gayanerekowa], the great law of peace, is set forth in Annex 8 of this Application,infra.
kaianerekowa is orally passed on from the ancestors of the onkwehonweh in our language, songs, ceremonies, wampums and stories that explains nature. See the video oral presentations [6 hours] that have been linked to Mohawk Nation News at Annex 8 that explain this very complex translation from Mohawk into English.
Each of us is sovereign [Article 40, infra, and Black’s Law Dictionary, infra]. Jurisdiction and sovereignty are based on the kaianerekowa, the great peace, the law of turtle island, and the tekeni teiohateh, the two-row wampum. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “sovereign” as “a person, body, or state in which independent and supreme authority is vested.”
Self-determination is defined as tewatatawi, “the process by which a person controls their own life.” The onkwehonweh in this case are sovereign through their culture, traditions, and principles from time immemorial, and through the kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum. [Annex 8, Annex 5, Annex 1].
Article 3 and 6 with the other Articles and preamble recognizes that each of the individual indigenous [original native] peoples here are sovereign: Indigenous peoples have the right to self-determination, to freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
Article 92 of the United Nations Charter provides: The International Court of Justice shall be the principal judicial organ of the United Nations.
United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Article 40, provides:
Indigenous peoples have the right to access to and prompt decision through just and fair procedures for the resolution of conflicts and disputes with States or other parties, as well as to effective remedies for all infringements of their individual and collective rights. Such a decision shall give due consideration to the customs, traditions, rules and legal systems of the indigenous peoples concerned and international human rights.
Article 1 must be enforced by this International Court of Justice: Indigenous peoples have the right to the full enjoyment, as a collective or as individuals, of all human rights and fundamental freedoms as recognized in the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and international human rights law.
Article 5 bolsters this Court’s jurisdiction in this case, providing: Indigenous peoples have the right to maintain and strengthen their distinct political, legal, economic, social and cultural institutions, while retaining their right to participate fully, if they so choose, in the political, economic, social and cultural life of the State.
Article 45 of the Rules of Court, in the case of Jones, et al, v. Parmley, et al., Supreme Court of the United States No. 17-928 [Annex 3 and Annex 4 below], provides we sovereign rotinoshonni the right to institute proceedings in the International Court of Justice at The Hague, against the United States and its court system. The proceedings will be filed in the registry of the Court in October 2018.
Each of us sovereign onkwehonwe make this Application to this Court with a winning hand, which is nature. We are all free. All life is free. Nature is.
The World Court has man-made unnatural rules that are in conflict with the natural law of turtle island. Natural law provides natural justice. The World Court claims to provide this. The Charter of the United Nations and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [107th plenary meeting of The General Assembly, 13 September 2007] claims to support each of the sovereign indigenous peoples appearing in this World Court.
We are not part of the corporate Statute of the International Court of Justice. We do not deliberately or knowingly join anything artificial or unnatural, like a corporation. We are created as one with all natural life. The United Nations claims to expressly support us in being naturally sovereign through its numerous Annex preamble paragraphs and pursuant to its Articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 18, 33, and 40 thru 46 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [Annex 6, Annex 1]. Self-determination for all life comes from nature. We are born naturally sovereign. The World Court, existing only through artificial man-made rules, has been set up as “the principle judicial organ of the United Nations” and as the last avenue for justice in the corporate judicial system that permeates the world. The buck stops there. But not in nature.
Article 33 of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples concedes this:
- Indigenous peoples have the right to determine their own identity or membership in accordance with their customs and traditions.
- Indigenous peoples have the right to determine the structures and to select the membership of their institutions in accordance with their own will.
The kaianerekowa and tekeni teohatehi guide us.
Our sovereignty in this case is confirmed at Article 34 of the UN Declaration related to indigenous [original] peoples: Indigenous peoples have the right to promote, develop and maintain their institutional structures and their distinctive customs, spirituality, traditions, procedures, practices and, in the cases where they exist, judicial systems or customs, in accordance with international human rights standards.
Article 35 bolsters our sovereignty: Indigenous peoples have the right to determine the responsibilities of individuals to their communities.
The United Nations acknowledges that nature has determined that each of us is naturally sovereign through its Articles 34 and 35, and the other Articles in its Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
For this case we consent to this Court’s limited jurisdiction to hear this case pursuant to Article 38, paragraph 5 of the Rules of Court. We are presenting this Application with our clan signs being witnessed, pursuant to Article 38, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court.
NATURE IS OUR AGENT.
We sovereign onkwehonweh act without agents as we are from and guided by the natural world. We live in peace, harmony, and balance with nature with respect for everyone and everything.
States are corporations that exist only through unnatural man-made fictional rules. States cannot be naturally authentic. They exist in this Court only through an authentic agent. [Article 38, paragraph 3, of the Rules of Court]. The agent must be authenticated by this Court to act for non-authentic States. We are naturally authentic and don’t need an agent.
The United States only exists on paper and comes alive only through interaction with corporate certified agents deemed as human beings. We are sovereign by just being born. The United States does not naturally exist, as such cannot own land, cannot have a native language of its own. It has no natural tie to turtle island. Americans need a corporate paper for everything they do. We onkwehonweh are the first to represent ourselves as true natural parties in this World Court. The UN is the leader of the unauthentic.
Similarly, only members of the Supreme Court of the United States Bar are allowed to appear before the Supreme Court. Real natural parties cannot appear by the Supreme Court’s own Rules. The United States politicians and the rich and powerful can use the Supreme Court, leaving the rest on the sidelines.
The United States is comprised of settlers who invaded our land, turtle island, which cannot be ceded by humanity. The United States makes existence of nature and natural people inhuman. See tekarontakeh’s words that explain this [Annex 5 at transcript pages 9 thru 21, Annex 2, Annex 1]. [Text of words of each of the Onondaga 15 Applicants to this Court is set forth in Annex 2 of this Application, infra, and audio recordings of the words can be heard on the computer disc attached to Annex 1 of this Application, infra.]
Our existence is instilled in us through oral history placed on wampums and in our memory. kaianerekowa, the great peace, is the inherent tewatatawi, how we are to carry ourselves on turtle island and throughout our existence. The natural world creates the path by which we are to live. Our songs, ceremonies, stories and creation tie us to natural life and forces of our mother earth.
The International Court of Justice protects the predatory system that is attempting to rule the World by force. We natural people are imprisoned and controlled by the corporate bullying system.
Each of the 15 sovereign Applicants submit this Application Instituting Proceedings. According to Article 40, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the International Court of Justice, and Articles 38 and 45 of the Rules of Court, Jurisdiction of the Court is found in Article 36, paragraph 1, of the Statute of the International Court of Justice:
The jurisdiction of the Court comprises all cases which the parties refer to it and all matters specially provided for in the Charter of the United Nations or in treaties and conventions in force.
“Justice and truth ” purport to be the cornerstone of the foundation of the Charter of the United Nations in protecting human rights for everyone worldwide. In this case, we come to the World Court seeking “justice and truth” through the Charter of the United Nations and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [Annex 6 here, infra, and pursuant to Articles 33 and 40 thru 46 of its Rules of Court].
“The Statute of the International Court of Justice, A Commentary [Second Edition], provides instructive comments on the procedure, edited by Andreas Zimmermann, Christian Tomuschat, Karin Oellers-Frahm, Christian J. Tams, Assistant Editor Maral Kashgar, and Assistant Editor David Diehl [Oxford University Press] (2012), at page 1092:
When dealing with Art. 43 [of the Statute of the International Court of Justice: “The procedure shall consist of two parts: written (memorials through the Registrar) and oral”], it should not be underestimated that all procedure before the Court is dominated by the fact that the litigants are sovereign states that do not lightly accept outside interference in their affairs, especially when that interference touches upon major, if not vital interests of theirs. Questions of procedure before the Court therefore, by definition, cannot be approached on the same basis as litigation before even the highest domestic court.
In the World Court substance controls procedure. We the natural people are the substance and have the winning hand – nature – which always beats the house of procedure. The only way to deactivate our winning hand is to prevent our playing it in their man-made control system.
The United States District Court relied on Onondaga sovereignty when it quashed subpoenas during the trial. The motion and the hearing transcript are provided from the District Court’s proceedings in Annex 5 and Annex 1 [computer disc] to this Application, infra.
This Application is endorsed by the family sign of each indigenous [original] peoples of the Onondaga 15 Applicants, and will be filed with the Registrar, along with a certified copy of the original pursuant to Article 52, paragraphs 1 and 2, of the Rules of Court. The court did allow us to present evidence regarding our sovereignty.
Article 18 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples applies here and at every level of the United States court system, and was violated throughout the past 21 years: Indigenous peoples have the right to participate in decision-making in matters [of this International Court of Justice] which would affect their rights, through representatives chosen by themselves in accordance with their own procedures, as well as to maintain and develop their own indigenous decision-making institutions. Our kaianerekowa and two-row wampum were ignored.
A certified copy of this Application will be served on the following:
The President of the United States, pursuant to the two-row wampum and the Canandaigua Treaty 1794, that the United States signed;
The Supreme Court of the United States;
The United Nations.
On February 16, 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States denied our Petition for a Writ of Certiorari [Annex 4] at the Court’s Friday morning conference of the 9 Justices. It was one of 392 similar Petitions scheduled that morning. This time limitation only allowed case names to be called and and then denied without review, debate and reasons.
Our Petition for Rehearing [found at Annex 3 below] was summarily denied by the Supreme Court on April 2, 2018. Every level of the United States Justice System denied us justice, due process, and a fair hearing/trial. We hope the World Court will provide us with justice and truth. [Article 18 of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (Annex 6, Annex 1)].
On May 18, 1997, [21 years ago] the New York State troopers viciously attacked us, our friends, and our allies at a ceremonial gathering of the rotinoshonni. We each commenced a Civil Rights action in the United States District Court against approximately 125 New York State Police troopers of the racially profiled “I-81 Indian Detail.” The troopers violated the First Amendment [peaceable assembly] and the Fourth Amendment [excessive force] rights under the Constitution of the United States. The attached video exhibit [at Annex 1 and on YouTube and the internet] clearly shows the actual violations of our basic human rights. On October of 2016, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the police. Our appeal [set forth at Annex 4 below] describes the unfair trial proven from actual District Court trial transcripts. The Judges of The Hague can review the denial to question witnesses, present our cases to the Jury, and where Judge [now Justice] Sotomayor’s law of the case supporting us was kept from the Jury. The United States Court of Appeals rubber-stamped the injustice. [Annex 4, and at Appendix A of Annex 4]. The Supreme Court of the United States confirmed the injustice. [Annex 4, Annex 3 [6 pages of detailed injustice by the Supreme Court], and Annex 1].
All documents and docket entries in the three courts are available through the links found at Annex 7 of this Application, infra, including all trial transcripts found electronically in the docket of the District Court.
Without informing us, the District Court allowed our lawyers to dump us after 17 years of representation, discovery, and preparation for trial. We had to conduct our jury trial ourselves. This tactic by the District Court ensured that we could not get a fair trial [set out in Annex 4, and at Appendix C of Annex 4, and Annex 1, infra.]
At the conference of the 9 Justices on February 16, 2018, Justice Sotomayor recused herself from the decision in the United States Supreme Court without giving a reason, violating our statutory right to waive her recusal. [Annex 4, and at Appendix B of Annex 4]. Judge Sotomayor wrote that the troopers could not defend their vicious attack on us in this case. At the subsequent rehearing on April 2, 2018, Justice Sotomayor once again recused herself and violated our statutory right to waive her recusal. We had no further recourse in the United States justice system, leading to this Application. [Annex 3 and Annex 1]. The Petition for a Writ of Certiorari, Waivers of Responses, and Order denying the Petition are set forth at Annex 4 and Annex 1, infra. Article 18 of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
ARTICLE 34 OF THE DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES PROVIDES:
The United States court system violated Article 34 by not allowing us to present our customs, spirituality, traditions, procedures, practices, our kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the two-row wampum.
The International Court of Justice is mandated to follow Article 41 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which provides: The entire UN system shall contribute to the full realization of the provisions of this Declaration through the mobilization, inter alia, of financial cooperation and technical assistance. Ways and means of ensuring participation of indigenous peoples on issues affecting them shall be established.
Article 42 bolsters the International Court of Justice’ mandate: The UN system including the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, specialized agencies, including country and state levels shall promote respect for and full application of the provisions of this Declaration.
Article 43 provides: The rights constitute the minimum standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of the indigenous peoples of the world.
Article 44 emphasizes individuals as follows: All the rights and freedoms recognized herein are equally guaranteed to male and female indigenous individuals.
Article 45 confirms: Nothing in this Declaration may be construed as diminishing or extinguishing the rights indigenous peoples have now or may acquire in the future.
And finally, [Annex 6, Annex 1]:
[Article 46.3] The provisions set forth in this Declaration shall be interpreted in accordance with the principles of justice, democracy, respect for human rights, equality, non-discrimination, good governance and good faith. [No mention of something concrete like returning our tewatatawi, land and resources to us].

- Order and instructions for total annihilation of rotinoshonni [Iroquois Confederacy] from General [future first United States President] George Washington to his Major General John Sullivan on May 31, 1779;
Each of us is sovereign as the natural original indigenous peoples of turtle island. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “sovereign” as “a person, body, or state in which independent and supreme authority is vested.” We are guided by the kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum, that provides natural justice. Annex 8, Annex 5, and Annex 1, Annex 2.
Over 20 years we proved that the United States justice system does not exist for us. We are asking The International Court of Justice to review and expose this injustice, inherent limits on justice and to tell the whole truth. The courts of the United States are foreign artificial man-made corporations imposed upon us by force. The colonial justice system of the United States courts have no jurisdiction over us, the native people of turtle island. Intervention by The International Court of Justice at the Hague is required in this case. For over 20 years in this case the United States court system protected the criminals. We have taken and exhausted all avenues available to us in the United States system. That system refuses any further filings in our case. Our experience is that justice is limited and the onkwehonweh are excluded. The corporate justice system is about fighting over possessions. kaianerekowa is about harmony with creation and has the tools to create balance with nature.
We request the World Court at The Hague to review and expose the injustice and failure to present the truth of the United States court system in this 20 year old case. The kaianerekowa, the great peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum, is the true and only tewatatawi of turtle island. All colonial constitutional and corporate laws and structures of the United States are foreign. These unnatural United States legal systems are based upon a foundation of greed and power that is contrary to our living in harmony and balance with nature. The unnatural United States legal systems were never recognized by the original peoples. We request that the World Court recognize that the United States has no jurisdiction over native people of turtle island. We request that the World Court accept that the United States is subject to kaianerekowa, the great law of peace, and the tekeni teiohateh, two-row wampum.
Today each of the 15 sovereign onkwehonweh [Onondaga 15] requests justice from the World Court in this case pursuant to the Charter of the United Nations and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The United States has never rescinded its order for the total annihilation of indigenous peoples on turtle island. The deliberate injustice by the United States court system over the past 21 years in this case continues the United States quest to exterminate indigenous peoples on turtle island.

WOW! We’re in The Hague to get us some justice! Mercy of the Court sings about the United States Court system. “Throw yourself on the mercy of the court. It’s a blessing. It’d s downright dirty curse. Secret handshakes. Smoky backroom deals. You are a human being with all these human fears. Beg forgiveness. Alleviate your health. The bottom of their heart will grant you the bottom of the well.”
IN THE UNITED NATION’S OWN WORDS, WARRANTING US A HEARING:
THE FOLLOWING PREAMBLE PARAGRAPHS IN THE UN DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE establish why our case requires a remedy from the International Court of Justice, the principle judicial organ of the United Nations:
Guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, and good faith in the fulfillment of the obligations assumed by States in accordance with the Charter,
Affirming that indigenous peoples are equal to all other peoples, while recognizing the right of all peoples to be different, to consider themselves different, and to be respected as such,
Affirming further that all doctrines, policies and practices based on or advocating superiority of peoples or individuals on the basis of national origin or racial, religious, ethnic, or cultural differences are racist, scientifically false, legally invalid, morally condemnable and socially unjust,
Reaffirming that indigenous peoples, in the exercise of their rights, should be free from discrimination of any kind,
Concerned that indigenous peoples have suffered from historic injustices as a result of, inter alia, their colonization and dispossession of their lands, territories and resources, thus preventing them from exercising, in particular, their right to development in accordance with their own needs and interests,
Recognizing also the urgent need to respect and promote the rights of indigenous peoples affirmed in treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements with States,
Welcoming the fact that indigenous peoples are organizing themselves for political, economic, social and cultural enhancement and in order to bring to an end all forms of discrimination and oppression wherever they occur,
Considering that the rights affirmed in treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements between States and indigenous peoples are, in some situations, matters of international concern, interest, responsibility and character,
Considering also that treaties, agreements and other constructive arrangements, and the relationship they represent, are the basis for a strengthened partnership between indigenous peoples and States,
Acknowledging that the Charter of the United Nations, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, as well as the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, affirm the fundamental importance of the right to self-determination of all peoples, by virtue of which they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
