Mohawk Workers Attempt to Halt Walton Development at Tutela Heights Burial Sites in Superior Court – Forthcoming Preliminary Allegation Information Synthesis Submission to U.N.

Mohawk Workers Attempt to Halt Walton Development at Tutela Heights Burial Sites in Superior Court – Forthcoming Preliminary Allegation Information Synthesis Submission to U.N.

The Mohawks of the Ouse / Grand River territory plan to submit allegations to the Ontario Superior Court on Friday including a motion for directions, and also to the Federal Court of Canada shortly thereafter.

We are thankful for the opportunity to submit same with the Office of the High Commissioner – United Nations – Human Rights via the Speical Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples. Our hope is that the alleged offending entities including branches / arms of Canadian governments may be compelled to respect relevant international protocols commencing tomorrow domestically. We understand that mechanisms take time to work.

Our fear is that further disturbances, digging and disruption / corruption of these sacred sites and other irreparable harm will be permitted to occur at the hands of the Ontario Superior Court and / or other Canadian entities notwithstanding our allegations and objections.

Our detailed allegation synthesis will be published shortly in advance of tomorrow’s filing.

In the meantime, an excellent reference document is included below which provides a relevant historical and cultural background from a legal perspective.  It includes an excellent summary of the Tutelo site including past resolution protocols and points to ways forward. 3.

This was the letter received yesterday by the U.N.  Special Rapporteur: Jason Bowman – RL
