Mohawk Community Evicts Non-Natives Over Concerns About Too Many ĹWhite Residentsĺ (video report)
CBC ^ | Feb. 7, 2010

Posted on 02/07/2010 12:00:07 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

CTV: The Mohawk Council is sending out eviction notices to non-natives who live in the South Shore community.

Band councilors say their laws interdict non-natives from living on their land, and so they are giving several dozen people ten days to leave the reserve.

"It's nothing new to anybody," said Grand Chief Mike Delisle.

"[Anyone] who's saying, 'well, I never heard of this, it's racist' or what have you, It's been a custom in Kahnawake since time immemorial."

...hold the phone!....is this one of those things where the tribe splits up casino profits at the end of the year?...or money from tobacco sales maybe...if so, then the fewer people, the bigger the share for those remaining.

Housing segregation (racial, religious and ethnic) had been the practice “from time immemorial” in lots of US communities before the 60s. We as a people recognized it was wrong and got over it. End of debate.

Indians, blacks or anyone other than white are incapable of being racist. Besides, if it’s Indian land, it’s exempt from our laws.

Originally from BC, the natives or “First Nations” are treated well by the govt, getting a check from specific provinces due to “white man’s guilt”. In BC, if you are of a specific tribe, you receive a check from the provl govt, even land.

Damn, they even have a subsidized TV channel from the federal govt where Nicolas Cage’s “Windtalkers” is shown everyday. (Well, there aren’t many Indian/native movies around)

So the Mohawks owned ALL THE LAND then were put on a Rez. Then the Rez was split up so Whites could expand in that area. Now they have a small fraction of their original land and God forbid, they want to keep that for themselves. Yep, sounds racist to me. By the way, some of you are using the word “America”, I believe Montreal is in Canada the last time I checked.

My family stopped skiing at Ski Apache in New Mexico years ago, because the natives that work there hate whites (but love our money). We were treated very shabbily on several occasions by ski patrol and staff. I won’t go to the casino owned by the Apaches, either (never went because I expect the same treatment). I have heard they treat white staff pretty poorly at the casino.

If they want to have the right of freedom of association, fine. I think they should have that right. I just don’t want to hear any whining from them if they are excluded by someone else.

If the Mohawks were really serious, they would be taking scalps. Where is their sense of historicity?

Frankly, when the pale faces have gone, their wampum needs to go also.

Start by looking up what “Native American” and “American Indian” mean. In that context, “American” refers to the continent, not The United States.

That is such a shame and it also goes on here in Hawaii with the Locals against the Whites which they consider intruders on their land. However I do see where the anger comes from. As an Indian let me say that our tribe got our hunting and fishing rights back plus a lot of other things to do with the land and there is no way that could have been done without our White friends helping us by writing to their congress persons etc. Indians have no voting block to speak of and can’t do much of anything without friends to help.

Well it’s their land, so they can do whatever they want. If some white person wanted to buy 500 acres of private land and say “No non-whites allowed”, they too would be well within their rights. The Constitution allows freedom of association and thereby non-association as well. Nothing to see here.

St. Lawrence Valley was not the original homeland of the Kanien’kehá:ka, who emerged south of there in present-day New York . Nor was it the homeland of the Iroquois nations, as had been theorized by some historians.

Instead, it was inhabited for centuries by a discrete Iroquoian -speaking people now called the St Lawrence Iroquoians . They lived in the valley as an identifiable people from the 1300s to the late 16th century, creating the villages of Stadacona, Hochelaga and others visited by explorer Cartier in the 1530s .

Evidence suggest they were driven from the valley or destroyed by attacks by the Kanien’kehá:ka, who wanted to control the fur trade and hunting in that area.

btw, Canada is the larger part of America.

And btw, It is Racist.

Most of those "natives" look a pale face as me.

You astute observation has touched on the absolutely unspeakable politically incorrect subject. Genealogy is my hobby as a pure amateur. Records are my "meat and drink". Up and down the Trans Canada Highway we have First Nations Reserves. When the government decreed the native people as "First Nations" they sure opened up a can of worms.

Very few of the chiefs have a name from the original male inhabitant of the indigenous people. One of the well known names on the reserve is a pure scandinavian name. Originally it had two dots over one of the letters. I encountered one of these persons and he posed no threat to me..... but he had a sort of Viking look.

Another well known name is pure German on the reserve. I cannot say they look Germanic though. One chief has a pure Finnish name and he has all the characteristics by his photograph as of Finnish descent.

I am a somewhat bashful supporter of local native rights for good reason. For in 1850 the Robinson-Huron Treaty was signed. The natives call it the Huron-Robinson Treaty. I was indignant when they took over a beautiful natural island in the St Mary's River, between the United States and Canada. "Ought be jolly well locked up" and that sort of view.

I read the Treaty over and sure enough the little island had been ceded over to the natives, as long as the waters run and the winds blow. In 1850.Oh calamity, before Canada came into being (1867). Guess who made the treaty (drum roll)? Why it was a bunch of chaps from merry old England. Lieutenant Robinson and all.

Today the little island remains and no body ever bothers anybody about it. A bit of a digression from the ramifications of inter-marriage, but ironically, it one could trace the male ancestry back and back,in some cases, who knows? A renegade red-coat soldier would appear. A very French person would be the male line.

I have respect for the law abiding natives and their sensitivities. This does not extend to the Quebec reserves and their billions of illegal cigarettes for the miscreants that buy them. Nor for their lack of decency in not having a honest discussion with others.

I don’t know, go ask them. I do not think that 1/30 anything is enough to qualify you for anything. Probably 60% of everyone I know claims to be Cherokee, but can’t trace it or prove it.

No matter how they got there, after the Whites took over they were put on a Rez. Your answer doesn’t void anything I said. And like I said in the other post, when Americans use the word America, you and I both know that they are not referring to the Greater North American Continent. When that is meant they usually say “the Americas”

"[Anyone] who's saying, 'well, I never heard of this, it's racist' or what have you, It's been a custom in Kahnawake since time immemorial."

Not entirely true. One of my ancestors and his sisters were captured by Mohawks at Deerfield, Mass. in 1704 and taken to Kahnawake. My ancestor finally left after 12 years or so but his sisters stayed and married into the tribe. Their descendants live there to this day. It wasn't unusual for Eastern tribes to capture white settlers and integrate them into the tribe to replace relatives who had died.

According to Bam Bam, Jessee Jackson is the street level leader of the black community and that is what he said on FOX before he went to ground over with his ‘Love Child’. I’m just repeating what the Black Leader of the Greatest Nation in History said unless you feel he isn’t a credable leader.

Lol! I hear that all the time even thogh their ancestors lived no where near the Cherokee. None of my ancestors married into the tribe but they were run out of North Carolina by the Cherokee in 1761.

On your statement about whites trying some sort of apartheid, if that is what it would be, you are right. One could have a little fun with the prospect though. The renowned Toronto Star would throw a hissy fit. Banner headlines about "Nazis" or if not that "KKK". In the face reporters hoping to get pushed out, when butting in, and then crying about being beaten and kicked.

Next the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with their usual prissy womenfolk, sharking up a touch of hysteria. The great, grave face of Peter, intoning about the start of "what Canada means, now being threatened". Then there is Taliban Jack and his followers, crying about the "end of Canada, is this succeeds".

Just had to have a bit of a laugh here.

Actually , no I don't and I don't have to excuse their ignorance.

Whites took over they were put on a Rez.

The whites conquered , the same as the Mohawks conquered . The white , in this case English , unfortunately , had the concept of deeds of land and treaties .

In the 1600's , when the Mohawks moved up the Ottawa Valley and attacked the Algonquins , who in turn attacked the Nipissings , who in turn moved west and drove the Ojibwa into what is now Minnesota , you think any of those tribes gave any thought to a land treaty or any kind of allowance for those they defeated? Of course not. If anything the English need for honour , deeds and treaties caused more problems than any conquering Indian tribe ever did . Fortunately the Mohawks returned to the St Lawrence , the Algonquin to the Ottawa Valley and , the Nipissings to North East Ontario , the Ojibwa to Sault St. Marie.

Then the white man screwed it all up.

One of the big problems of what I call “lost identity” is that a lot of people really do have Indian blood but can’t prove it because of early relatives hid the fact because in those days being part Indian was a put down and you were not accepted in the majority of White society. Just as in those days if you had any negro blood you were considered a black person, no matter how small the blood quantum.

The Onondagas in CNY won’t let anyone who isn’t a certain percentage of native live on the reservation and any native who marries outside of the tribe isn’t allowed to live on the res.

It’s their land. They can set policies.

The only thing that irks me is this *sovereign nation* thing. They are not sovereign. They depend on the outside world for an awful lot of services and are not really independent. They may govern themselves in most ways, but are not really independent or self-sufficient.
