Mohawk Nation News 'Kahnawake to Become Shopping Mall Mecca'


 

KAHNAWAKE TO BECOME SHOPPING MALL MECCA Audio


Mohawk Nation News

DEC. 2, 2021. Black Friday, every Friday in Kahnawake is the illegal band council’s dream, to make us more spiritually and mentally dependent than we have ever been.

The illegal Mohawk Council of Kahnawake Mayor Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer has disgusted and shamed the kanienkehaka’onwe by welcoming a project to turn kahnawake into a shopping mecca to welcome foreigners into our community. We are being urged to speak French to accommodate shoppers. She scolds us for not being better friends with our non-native neighbors who want to economically screw us over, but who actually admire the way we do business. We don’t pay taxes and do what we want. She wants us to give this all up and be more accommodating for their economic development purposes to enrich them and their Quebec and Canada partners and investors.

Western Shoshone Ian Zabarte 'Treaty Has Not Been Honored'

Treaty has not been honored

In response to the Nov. 18 editorial, “Biden taking long-overdue steps to reverse neglect of Indigenous people”: The president has not taken action to create a reservation guaranteed by law for the benefit and protection of the Western Shoshone people, authorized by Congress in Article 6 of the Treaty of Ruby Valley.

The Shoshone people are denied our right to self-determination, title and interest in our own property. Shoshone ranchers were blamed by the Bureau of Land Management for range destruction caused by nuclear weapons testing. Radioactive fallout caused the Shoshone people adverse health consequences significantly higher than other Americans documented in our research, “The Assessment of Radiation Exposures in Native American Communities from Nuclear Weapons Testing in Nevada, March 2000 Risk Analysis.” Our research is the basis for contentions in Yucca Mountain licensing by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that stopped the $15 billion project.
