AUGUST 31, 2012 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Kanata – Mohawk Territory of the Ouse / Grand River

Yesterday morning, the Kanienkahagen (Mohawk) Workers commenced an unprecedented operation which identifies and targets belligerent parties deemed to have acted unlawfully in respect lands within a Mohawk Territory known as the Haldimand Tract. The notices reiterate prior notices that parties to all unauthorized negotiations, development, maintenance and construction are to immediately cease their activities. The parties were also directed to desist from any further unauthorized actions in respect of the lands within the Haldimand Tract.

Bill Squire, a Mohawk Worker, and spokesperson for the Mohawks says that “The Kanienkahagen Mohawks have always maintained that this was Kahniakehake Territory and Kahniakehake business and that neither the Six Nations Confederacy, Six Nations Band Council, corporations, nor any municipal / outside government body has ever been granted any right to represent our people and our business within our territory. It is very unfortunate, but necessary that we take these steps in order to assert our rights and in order to protect our territory from further illicit corruption.”

This first round of Lawful Notices of Intent (LNIs) state the following:

1. As an unauthorized party to matters pertaining to Mohawk lands situated within the Haldimand Tract, you are hereby directed to CEASE AND DESIST from any and all acts which directly pertain to matters in respect of any land situated within the Haldimand Tract, including unlawful trespasses;

2. As an unauthorized party to matters pertaining to Mohawk lands situated within the Haldimand Tract who has received NOTICE OF INTENT, you are hereby directed to REGISTER your full legal name, date of birth, and address for service with the Mohawk Nation of the Ouse / Grand River within 96 hours at the Mohawk Workers – Kanata office below, or retreat from all lands “six miles deep from the mouth to the source of the Grand (Ouse) River” (the Haldimand Tract) until such time as you have registered;

3. As an unauthorized party to matters pertaining to Mohawk lands situated within the Haldimand Tract, who has been served NOTICE TO CEASE AND DESIST, you are hereby given NOTICE OF INTENT TO COMMENCE PROCEEDINGS against you for your trespasses pursuant to applicable provisions and within a tribunal of competent jurisdiction;

4. Personal NOTICE of any such proceedings shall be duly served upon you at the address with which you remain registered;

5. Any failure on your part, to comply with any portion of this NOTICE TO YOU, may result further ramifications such as the forwarding of your relevant details to INTERPOL / international authorities, and the commencement of proceedings WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE TO YOU.

Notices we delivered yesterday to: Chris Friel (Mayor of Brantford), Ron Eddy (Mayor of Brant County), Ken Hewitt (Mayor of Haldimand County), Patrick J. Doherty (Chairman of Walton International Group Inc.), Dr. Oh-Hyun Kwon (CEO of Samsung Electronics Co.), William Montour (chief of the Six Nation’s Band Council), Gord Peters (Grand Chief of the Association of Iroquois and Allied Nations) and Lynda Tanaka (Chair of the Ontario Municipal Board). NOTE: As of 3 p.m. EDT, there has been no response from any of the parties.

Notes to Editor:
1. These Mohawks represent the ‘head’ and leaders of the original League of Five Nations Confederacy, and remain the lawful trustees and protectors of the Mohawk Nation’s original copy of the Haldimand Proclamation of 1784. This entitlement issued under the seal of King George III of England states undeniable and outright ownership to the Mohawk Nation of the lands “six miles deep from the mouth to the source of the Grand (Ouse) River” – approximately 1 million acres known as Haldimand Tract:as long as the Sun shall be moving in the Heavens, and the Grass growing, and the waters flowing in the rivers” for them “and such others’” to enjoy forever.

 2. This indigenous nation of sovereign people has been living on the banks of the Grand River in southern Ontario, since their territory was established in 1784. Their land base of nearly 1 million acres was given to them by the King of England for their military service and loss of their homeland in New York State (the Mohawk Valley, given that they fought for the British in the American Revolutionary War, and remain ALLIES, not SUBJECTS of the Crown. This land ‘gift’ / war reparation is called the “Haldimand Proclamation” (See: https://rotinonshonnionhwetkanatahere.wordpress.com) for more information.

3. When Canada took statehood, these Mohawks thought that they would still be treated as respected allies, but many changes occurred. These Mohawks were treated very badly, with much money and land stolen.

4. Accordingly, I have been asked to begin the process of dealing with outstanding debts owed by creditors to the ka-nyen-geh-ha-kah Mohawks of the Ouse / Grand River.

5. Approximately 80 per cent of the city of Brantford remains under land claims and collections proceedings in respect of delinquent lease payments in the amount of $250 billion. Including interest, this figure was invoiced by the Mohawks in 2008 at $663 billion including interest. Brantford’s mayor Tayor in 1994 acknowleged the debt but said the question is how it can be paid without bankrupting the City of Brantford and the rest of Canada. He was quoted in the Brantford Expositor in an April 19, 1994 article by Vincent Ball as follows: “These are issues that are going to have to be resolved… They’re not going to be brushed off easily.” Relevant particulars can be provided upon request.

6. Standard and Poor’s has said that Brantford deserves its AA credit rating because it is considered to show a low debt burden, with only $15.4 million of direct debt shown as outstanding in 2008, (which was only 6.6% of the city’s operating revenue) and “represented next to no burden on its taxpayers.” This suggests that while the city acknowledges its indebtedness to the Mohawks for lease payment arrears, it continues to refuse to account for the debt on its books.

7. The Kanyen’kehake of the Ouse / Grand River are currently considering proposals for capitalizing or otherwise dealing with this (and other) indebtedness. Selling the debt to a third party remains an option open to us at this time, and we are currently engaged in talks with a number of parties in respect of proposals to capitalize our debts.

8. Jason Bowman is a Canadian Harvard-educated citizen prosecutor, who has been appointed as a special assistant to Bill Squire who has been duly appointed to act as the spokesperson for the Mohawk Nation.

A Message From the Mohawk Workers of Kanata RE: Genocide, The Haldimand Land Claim / Fraud & the Return to the Great Peace

Sekoh / hello,

Mohawk’s Haldimand Tract

We, the Mohawks of the Ouse / Grand River (a sovereign state within “Canada”), having for centuries proved to be faithful allies of the Crown of Great Britain – and having lost our ancestral homelands due to England’s wars such as the American Revolution – were awarded approximately 1 million acres on the banks of the Grand River running into Lake Erie, allotting to us, for the purpose of possession and settlement, six nautical miles deep from each side of the Grand river, beginning at Lake Erie, and extending in that proportion to the head of the said river, which we, and such others’ prosperity are to enjoy forever.

1821 Partial Map of Mohawk Lower Grand River Lands

This decree that granted land to the Iroquois under the Mohawks was issued by the Governor of the Province of Quebec, Frederick Haldimand, on October 25, 1784 and is known as “The Haldimand Proclaimation“.  Because it has never been lawfully ceded, it remains of full binding force and effect.Very simply, frauds and deceit have usurped this war reparation and robbed our people of what is rightfully ours, depriving us, to this day, of any homeland upon which to hunt and gather food and medicine, and leaving us with only stalled Land Claims and unpaid invoices.  Broken promises, fraud, embezzlement and genocide – and worse – have all been perpetrated at the unclean hands of too many to count at this time.This simple and astronomical Mohawk  land claim was outlined in an application to the International Court of Justice in the Hague filed on May 26, 1967. (The Mohawk Nation vs. Canada, successor of Great Britain).  This claim was filed by international lawyer, Dr. Omar Z. Ghobashy, who said:

“The Act to provide for the disposition of Indian land claims, registered June 21, 1965, in the House of Commons of Canada (Bill C-123).  By Canada setting its own appointed commission, the Canadian government is taking the duel position of defendant and judge.”

He advised that the Haldiamand should never be subject to  adjudications under this act.

Currently, the courts of Canada only recognize a defacto Band Council (and the Six Nation’s Confederacy) as the legal representatives of impugned “Six Nations lands”, who evidently permitted, inter alia,  Brant County and the city of Brantford to unlawfully negotiate matters of land issues with unlawful (albeit ‘elected’) Band Councils who acted without the Mohawk Statemen’s approval) under the terms of the abhorrent Canadian “Indian Act”, or the so-called “Six Nation’s Confederacy” under the terms of the defacto “Simcoe Deed of 1793” (which preempted the Haldimand), once again, WITHOUT MOHAWK CONSENT. (Note: “NO COUNCIL OF THE LEAGUE SHALL BE LEGAL UNLESS ALL OF THE STATESMEN OF THE MOHAWKS ARE PRESENT.” [From: Kayanerehkowa, Wampum #6]

A map of Brantford surveyed by Lewis Burwell in January 26, 1833 clearly shows Brantford in possession of only 807 acres and was completely surrounded by Mohawk farms and lands under the lease. This then raises unanswered questions:

Was this land ever sold?
Was it ever purchased?
Were Mohawk land owners ever compensated?
Were leases ever paid?
When will the City of Brantford and others begin to make good on payments?

Mayor Taylor of The Corporation of the City of Brantford acknowledged the city’s Mohawk Nation of the Ouse / Grand River’s $250 billion dollar indebtedness to the Mohawks in 1993.   Today, that balance exceeds $700 billion – and counting.

This travesty leaves Mohawk lands and land questions unresolved and disappearing – a direct violation of Mohawk land rights and of our human rights.  Our hunting and food / medicine gathering grounds were corrupted and polluted, leaving many areas now totally devoid of any natural value.  Current toxic (human waste) sludge dumps at the Grand River source water (one of Earth’s largest freshwater aquafier) in Dundalk attest to the scale and sense of gravity at hand.

Accordingly, we as Mohawk people appeal for support from any decent people to whom justice and peace remain important.  We remain open to support, advice, and advocacy in 0ur struggle to have our voices heard.  Our message is simple: “We Invite All to Return to the Great Peace”

Bill Squire, Spokesperson for the Haldimand Mohawks of the Grand River.
