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."

Most of those “natives” look as pale face as me.
...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.
It is still racist.
Indians, blacks or anyone other than white are incapable of being racist. Besides, if it’s Indian land, it’s exempt from our laws.
There are no native Americans - just an aguement over who got here first.

Looks have nothing to do with it. Neither do feelings.
Forget the sarcasm tag?
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)
You had better stay out of Metatcatla or Tyonek AK
Sign at the airstrip or dock
NO WHITES ALLOWED
(unless you are there to fix the sat TV or phone, or generator ,or...)
Their place thier rules.
Where is Canada? Have they moved it out of North America?
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.
I didn’t see anything about “North America” but will look again. Only saw America which in anyones mind would mean the USA.
