They condemn the Kaianerehkowa.[They claim we Indigenous weren�t here
but came after the Moors of northern Africa and Spain. It could have to
do with overthrowing our inherent rights to Great Turtle Island. False
history is being created that conforms to their agenda, with the help of
far-out handlers].

They play all kinds of semantics and prey on the ignorance of others.
Yet they insist on using the people of Akwesasne, the Kanienkehaka, to
build a foundation for their new religion/history/cult/scam. They come
in and out of [our] Longhouses, that they don't believe in [and
practically condemn]. They participate in meetings with "other Mohawk
leaders",[and try to take over the agendas and subject others to their
Camel/Donkey Treaty excreta] although they no longer consider themselves
[to be] Mohawks.

They hijacked the Akwesasne Women's Fire website posting full coverage
of the Larry [King Tut] Thompson Show. The buzz is that they plan to use
the history of Mohawk resistance to suck money out of Momar Khadafi of
Libya and others.

What is the end game? Who knows! I, like many, simply want to just
ignore all this nonsense. But opportunists like these use events like
the Kawehnoke [Cornwall Island border] issue to confuse and undermine
the will of the people. Most of us are just plain embarrassed by their
ramblings and antics. The problem is that when the patients take over
the asylum, it is hard to tell the mad scientist from the mad men and
the mad men from the mindless.

Someone is behind all this with a purpose. No, it isn't enlightenment or
eternal life [nor the best interests of Indigenous]. It is something
much easier to grasp; $. Most of us have gotten used to looking the
other way while our neighbors figured out the next get-rich quick scheme
[while taking advantage of native sovereignty]. This time it is
different. It isn't about selling out your own ethics or morality; or
jeopardizing your own freedom or security. It is about selling out our

There are plenty of non-native [interests] looking for a group of
"onkwehonwe" to [use to] deny everything we stand for; sovereignty,
freedom, ties to our land, stewards of that land, government by the
people, equality, inherent rights, natural law and our connectedness to

These prophets of the camel's eye are just what the doctor ordered to
harm us. A few corrupt men can take advantage of those weakened by
years of alcohol and drug abuse, desperate for something to believe in,
abused or abandoned as kids, hooked on easy money and disgruntled.
Those no one had ever done anything for.

This isn't their first attempt. After making millions [using our
sovereignty] and establishing themselves as the envy of others, ruling
over them becomes the next brass ring to grab. These guys have worked in
and out of every court, political and religious system and movements.
They never learned who they were. It is no wonder that they are drawn
to the Egyptians. In our way there is no hierarchy. These guys admire
the pyramid, the symbol of wealth and power.

From one of the camels that went to OPP cop school to jmkane, editor,
Native Pride. Tue. 9/29/09: Hey John you are starting to sound like K.
Horn. what gets you so upset because people are thinking and questioning
history. you like to be quasi sovereign? well I don't. but that is a
personal choice. anyway i disagree with your writing and the rant style
you chose. maybe if you were here in the mix of what is happening you
would be in some know.

BJD, a Kanion�ke:haka, suggested Kaianereh�ko:wa [Great Law] protocol:
It is good that the [culprits are] named since you are directly
familiar with their antics within our communities. This enables us who
have not encountered them to be wary & prepared� I would call upon the
Kanienke'ha:ka Nation's traditional authoritative bodies, the Otiyaner
[Clan-Mothers] & Rotiya'ner [the Men][on behalf of the people] to make
a public statement denouncing these [counterfeit] Kanienke'ha:ka persons
who are engaging in subversive activities.
