Kahnawake: SQ Police Banned by Mohawk Traditional Council


MTC Letter to Stockwell Day

August 13, 2008 Stockwell Day Minister of Public Safety And Emergency Preparedness Canada Greetings from the Mohawk Nation With the recent feeble apology of the Canadaian Government to the Native victims of the residential school instrument of genocide, it has become clear that there is no desire to correct the inhumane behavior of your church and state, but rather, only a desire to absolve those guilty of perpetrating such crimes against humanity. This has become blatantly clear through the continued racist policy of armed invasion by your police forces within our territories, which resulted in the late David Cross being murdered right in front of his family by S.Q. agent Robert Lessard, on October 20, 1979. This blunder has caused a reconfiuration of such policies, culminating in the illegal policing agreement that was signed by the elected mayor of Kahanwake and the Quebec Government, which provided the ways and means for non-native police forces to enter into our territory to enforce foreign laws and jursidiction. However, this murderous policy of invasion disguised as a policing agreement, has once again caused the death of one of our sons, fifteen-year-old Tyler Glasgow, who lost his life as a result of the illegal intrusion into our territory by a non-native police officer. Regardless of how one may examine this most recent incident of loss of life, the root cause of such atrocities is the undeniable fact that armed non-native forces have absolutely no business within our territory. Every time a non-native police force enters any of our territories it is an armed attack of aggression upon our women and children, which threatens the day-to-day lives of innocent people as well as the lives of those who are illegally invading our territory. Therefore it has become necessary to inform you, in a peaceful fashion before violence erupts, that this encroachment into our territories by armed non-native forces will no longer be tolerated by the Mohawk People. It is now left upon you to inform all non-native forces that any violation of our territory will be viewed as an armed act of aggression against our women and children, to which any of our men have been granted full right to deal with in any fashion necessary to effect the neutralization or removal from our territories of such agents of your government. This is not a lawless act of aggression to any imagined authority, rather it is a response by the Mohawk people to acquire justice to effect a peaceful end to these continued armed acts of aggression by your government against our safety and welfare. Do govern yourself accordingly In Peace and Friendship Secretary, Stuart Miyow Mohawk Traditional Council Box 531 Kahnawake J0L 1B0

Two Row Wampum Treaty

Two Row Wampum Treaty
"It is said that, each nation shall stay in their own vessels, and travel the river side by side. Further, it is said, that neither nation will try to steer the vessel of the other." This is a treaty among Indigenous Nations, and with Canada. This is the true nature of our relationships with Indigenous Nations of 'Kanata'.
