“Visitors come with coffee, food, firewood and other goods to keep the protesters on the tracks supplied with everything they need for a long standoff. Others come just to keep their friends and relatives company, often with babies or small children in tow.” Barricade has support of Kahnawake Mohawk community: Montreal Gazette. https://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/barricade-in-kahnawake-has-support-of-mohawk-community-and-beyond

Wetsuweten Hereditary Chief Na'moks says governments canceled meetings with the Hereditary Chiefs at around 4:30PM today. "We would not ask other nations and allies to step down so both Governments have walked away," he said. Na'moks said BC and Canada had asked us to ask other nations and allies to step down. "We can't do that ... We live in a free country, we can't do that." Na'moks said the Mohawks are free to make their own decisions.
