The Mohawk Mothers filed at Montreal Superior Court on August 25, 2022 all the evidence for their demand for an interlocutory injunction to stop excavation of unmarked graves of children and disturbance of archeological remains of kahnienkehaka/Mohawks on tekanontak [Mount Royal Montreal]. Indigenous children and other test subjects were experimented upon in the 1950s and 1960s. More than 140 exhibits (affidavits, archives, scholar articles, newspaper clippings, drawings, pictures, maps, aerial photos, testimonies of witnesses, survivor statements, government reports, doctor correspondence, Phd. dissertations, book chapters government files,) support their position. On August 31 the opponents [McGill University, Royal Victoria Hospital, Allan Memorial Institute, McGill University Health Centre, City of Montreal, Quebec government, and Minister of Justice Canada] are challenging the right of the Mohawk Mothers to represent themselves. At the same time McGill threatens to excavate the unmarked graves and archeological remains before the hearing on October 26 to avoid an investigation of the archeological remains which their own institutions acknowledge as highly probable.
