Mohawk Nation News 'George Washington Belt 1794'


GEORGE WASHINGTON BELT 1794 *[Clarification]

Mohawk Nation News
mnnlogo1
Please post & distribute. *See clarification.
Mar. 22, 2016. We thought the Onondaga Council of Chiefs Inc. and the Saint Regis Council of Akwesasne Inc. went to Washington DC recently to belt George Washington for what he did to us. Instead they’re all smiling and commemorating the 1794 George Washington Belt, otherwise called the Canadaigua Treaty. This belt honors the doctrine of discovery and set up the genocidal master-slave relationship known as Federal Indian Law. They have the paper and our land and we have the belt hanging in their Capital.
These 'chiefs' need ahonwatiko'roti:weh!
These ‘chiefs’ need ahonwatikorotiweh!
The belt is 6 ft. long. 13 big men stand along each side of the belt representing the 13 bloodlines. The White House is depicted with a small longhouse inside. Two little guys, a Mohawk and Seneca, stand alongside the longhouse. Arms are stretched over them suggesting we have become wards of the state and are being protected by them. The Mohawk and the Seneca were never part of this agreement. It’s a fraud! Washington_Wampum_Belt
George Washington carried the belt around to give it to those who accepted his arrangement to sit on top of us and tell us what to do. The belt never went through the Grand Council of the rotin’shonni, therefore it is illegitimate. Anyone honoring this belt shows us that they have left the canoe and gone to the other side of their own free will. Remember what happened to traitor Joseph Brant in 1804!http://www.amazon.com/Joseph-Brant-1743-1807-Worlds-Iroquois/dp/0815602081
fidelOren Lyons, Sid Hill, Jake Edwards, Sam George, Leo Henry and others from Onondaga corporate council and the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal corporation celebrated this belt as if it’s legitimate. At this recent commemoration a few Senecas attended but the double crossers did not put them in the ‘official’ picture with the belt. The Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga and Tuscarora know it’s illegitimate without their elder brothers present at all councils.
Now is the time we onkwe’hon:weh have to stop honoring any treaty belts. They have not ever honored their side. Everytime we put on our gustowas and ribbon shirts, and march arm in arm with the feds, we are celebrating their dishonoring of their side of every belt they agreed to.
Waiting for decision.
Waiting.
Frank Zappa must have intuitively known the kaia’nere:kowa as he knew we can be absolutely free if we want to be: “Unbind your mind. There is no time to lick your stamps and paste them in, discorporate. You’ll be absolutely free, only if you want to be. Discorporate.”
Lyrics: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/f/frank+zappa/absolutely+free_20057003.html
*Clarification: On Mar. 23, 2016, John Kane made the following relevant comment:
*”… the bellt is meaningless. Whatever those images are intended to depict means nothing. There are no terms to an agreement. There is no recorded narrative to its meaning. Washington had the belt made. He commissioned an Oneida to craft it two years before “Canandaigua”. His men may have carried it around with them at Canandaigua, but there is really no connection between this insulting set of images and the so-called “Treaty of 1794.” As shitty as that lopping off of land was, there is nothing that asks for protection or suggests subjugation in it. Three times in “Canandaigua” the US clearly states that they recognize our land as OURS and that the US will never claim it (in spite of the Doctrine of Christian Discovery and what the Marshal court would say 40 years later). Article 7 makes clear that NO authority by the US would be imposed even in the event of wrong-doing by individuals. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a shitty document and it was never lawfully ratified by either side. But NONE of the language of “Canandaigua” matches the images of the “Ranatakaias”, our name for George Washington.  
Ranatakaias means: “He is like a rabid dog who runs into the village and starts attacking, biting, tearing at and killing everything, without discretion”.

O'odham Land -- O'odham in Mexico Governor of Wo'osan Raymond Valenzuela took action today to open the access road into the northern lands by removing the fence, fence poles and signs, that went up on Thursday, March 3, 2016.
Mexican ranchers have long encroached on O'odham lands and made illegal claims to O'odham lands. These Mexican ranchers have squatted on O'odham lands.
Yesterday they closed access to the O'odham traditional route.
