Facing competition, West Coast ports seek better rail links

There are 3 comments on the McClatchy DC story from Jun 29, 2009, titled Facing competition, West Coast ports seek better rail links. In it, McClatchy DC reports that:

Struggling to ride out the recession, West Coast ports face new competition as ports in Canada and Mexico, an expanded Panama Canal and even the Suez Canal could steal away some of the cross-Pacific shipping they've relied on.

MNN. June 30, 2009. A co-called confederacy chief from the Up-the-Hill
Longhouse in Kahnawake will be canoeing down the St. Lawrence River to
Quebec City to celebrate Canada Day on July 1. They are going to plant
a tree of peace. At the same time, a delegation of real Haudenosaunee
chiefs is going to Akwesasne to discuss the true meaning of the Two Row

A dubious foreign peace mission has appeared on the scene. They put out
a video of the blessing by this Chief. The spectacle was in the Notre
Dame Cathedral in Montreal on June 28th 2009. Priests, actors dressed
as voyageurs and Indians took part. They are purporting that the Two
Row Wampum agreement is going to transfer allegiances of the Mohawk from
the British to the European community.

They are forming an alliance with the French, the longtime enemies of
the Iroquois ever since Champlain shot our Rotiyaner the first time he
met them. The real Confederacy maintains our traditional
nation-to-nation relationship with the Dutch and British.

There is only one Tree of Peace planted in Onondaga near Syracuse where
the original chairman of the Confederacy, Atotarho, was installed. This
group appears to want to transfer the head of the Confederacy to Quebec

The Two Row Wampum, or Guswentha, consists of two rows of purple wampum
beads on a background of white beads. This signifies the paths of the
Haudenosaunee and that of our friends and allies. We agreed to travel
on parallel paths never touching. It was a declaration of peaceful
co-existence between us.

Guswentha was here from the beginning, long before the coming of any
foreigners to this land. This concept of non-interference was unknown
to the newcomers. We still promote this idea. The League of Nations,
the UN and all international agreements and pacts are based on the
Guswentha. The European community has not respected this relationship
so that they can continue to steal and commit acts of genocide against
is. If they complied, they would have to correct the wrongs.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper apologizing to us for the
residential school abuse and killings from one side of his face does not
correct or erase the wrongs committed in the past, present and what is
planned for the future.

The first two row agreement was with the Dutch government in 1613
symbolized by our belt and the hemp. With the French it was the iron
chain. With the British it was the Silver Covenant Chain. With the US
it was the gold chain which is seen on uniforms and other symbols.

The Five Nations Haudenosaunee allied with the British and defeated the
French. We pushed back the US from taking over the northern part of
Great Turtle Island.

It looks like this group wants to symbolically change this arrangement
by transferring this allegiance of the Iroquois over to the European
religious community [Catholic]. All Haudenosaunee and our allies, which
includes most of the Indigenous Nations of Great Turtle Island, must
agree to any change. Nobody has been consulted. Do they think they
will get away with this travesty as they use video on the internet to
propagandize their farce?

France has always tried to take over Great Turtle Island. They think
they have to come in through Quebec and Canada and then into the US.
They know they have to make arrangements with the Confederacy.

The Up-the-Hill group doesn�t seem to learn from history. When the
battle was over, all the Ongwehonwe who allied themselves with the
Europeans were always rewarded with genocide. They are entering an
illegal agreement with another foreign entity. They do not have that

In the 1980s the Haudenosaunee Land Rights Committee made a presentation
to the Quebec government on our position. A recital was done of the
first three wampum strings to clear the eyes, ears and throat. Then a
presentation was made on the Two Row Wampum and the Circle of 50 Chiefs.

The Quebec cabinet asked if we would form an alliance with the
Separatists. They knew they needed our permission. We asked them
whether they would recognize and respect us as the original sovereign
people of this land. No answer was given. They wanted our support to
legitimize their separation from Canada and become a pawn in the hands
of the European community. Once they became independent, they would
treat us as badly as the English and US. Our allegiance is not to the
French, English or US. We have a friendship with them that we want to
keep. Any decision we make must be in the best interests of all our

One year ago the German Pope came to Great Turtle Island, kissed the
ground and claimed it for Europe. The Up-the-Hill and French alliance
ceremony done at the main Catholic Church in Montreal symbolizes an
agreement with an ecclesiastical hierarchy which is centered in Rome.
The Roman Catholic Church has dominated the monarchies and governments
of Europe for over 1000 years. This invalid agreement would be between
a would-be Confederacy chief and the ecclesiastics of Europe.

A valid agreement is between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and other
sovereign nations. They were made on a secular political basis, between
sovereign states that represent the people. Any agreement with a church
or religious organization is not binding or enforceable. It violates
the Great Law where no religion governs the Haudenosaunee.

This appears to be the European community trying to furthering their new
world order agenda. We suspect that the Jesuits and their European
backers have influenced this phony agreement. It is not legitimate
because the true Confederacy, the Haudenosaunee and the Indigenous are
not involved. This is a desperate attempt to misrepresent and rob all
of us.
