Horror Show Now Playing at Canadian Church

scarymohawk.jpgThis is one show I won’t be taking in….I just can’t stand fear.  I’ve put a silver cross above the door and hung garlic everywhere to ward off the evil  Mohawk.  Damn, that means my softer than soft hearted Mohawk friend won’t be able to come over.  Hmmmm.   Read on for another dilly by Kahentinetha Horn:

What is “ecclesiastical tyranny”?  It

is raw colonialism and terrorism,

plain and simple!      


MNN.  Nov. 24, 2007.  On Friday, November 23, 2007, a

hearing was held in Montreal .  A Mohawk had been

fired the year before by the Sulpician Order because

he was a Mohawk.   Little did they know, he was a very

quiet, reliable and hard working guy.  It took the

Sulpicians more than a year to cook up a case against

him.  While they were busy plotting, he quietly sold

rosaries and crucifixes to the multi-national clientele

that come into the shop at Notre Dame Basilica in Old

Montreal .  This is where they sent him to get him out

of the way.  Too bad for them, the bad old days are gone.  

Quebec employees have some laws to protect them. 

Once the church cobbled together some charges, they

had to deal with a union.      


The church witnesses eagerly stated that, “We are afraid

of Mohawks.  They are violent and associated with

organized crime”.   Never mind that the Mohawk defendant

had no criminal record and no association with any known

criminals.  The church expects divine intervention even if it

has to co-opt people with delusional fantasies to get its way. 


This tactic is not new.  It harkens right back to Samuel de

Champlain’s first encounter with the Kanienkehaka, the

people of the flint.  Without so much as pausing for a

“howdy do”, or “by your leave”, he marched onto our

land on Lake Champlain and shot our chiefs the moment

he saw them.  Then, he  embarked on three genocidal

campaigns hoping to kill every Mohawk.  They made up

crazy stories about us to justify their actions.  It’s been

going on ever since. [This is “organized crime”!] The

 subconscious of French-Canadian ecclesiastical and

military power has a tremendous animosity towards the

Mohawks.  They have always tried to eliminate us.  They

pretend they have a right to be here and that we don’t exist.         

The defendant brought a female elder from his community

to sit in on the hearings.  She sat beside him.  Even though

the hearing was taking place on Mohawk land and involved

allegations against the Mohawks, everything took place in

French.  None of the proper formalities were observed.  The

“Ahenton kariwatekwen” was not recited.  There was no

“condolence ceremony” as would have been proper in an

intercultural meeting.  The elder decided to observe the

proceedings and show her joyful enthusiastic good nature

by smiling and showing good will to everyone.  She never

spoke or made any other gestures throughout the day.


Eventually, the church witnesses became so agitated by

her smile that the arbitrator tried to claim that her presence

was disrupting the somber atmosphere.  “Why are you

staring at the witnesses?” he asked. 


She replied, “Everyone is observing the proceedings”. 

The arbitrator wanted to put the woman elder in the far

corner of the room, like a child, so no one could see her

watching what went on.  The reason why they did not want

an outside observer was obvious.  As the day wore on, the

witnesses were finding it more and more difficult to think

up things that would make their victim look bad.     


A young man who worked as a janitor for the church,

before moving to Ontario , was flown in for the day.  The

poor guy was suffering from delusions, “I feared for my

life”, he stated as his face twitched and sweat poured down

his brow.    He described an incident that happened in Verdun ,

a municipality of Montreal .  He said that the defendant had

driven by him on his bike on a bike path, heading back into

Old Montreal to the church, at around 6:25 pm.  He claims to

have heard the defendant say, “You’re next, you little fuck!” 


The problem with this story is that, one, the defendant is not

in the habit of using that kind of language.  Two, whoops!!

There are many witnesses who can prove the defendant

was still at work selling rosaries at 6:05 pm on that very day. 

Maybe it was a doppleganger!  This hearing proved

something for sure.  Prejudice and dangerous delusional

fantasies about the Kanienkehaka [Mohawk] continue to run

rampant in Quebec , just as they did on the day of our first

meeting with Champlain and his French troops. These people

could sure use an exorcist real quick, or what! 


A pall of darkness descended into the room.  It was like going

back to the middle ages in Europe .  The Sulpicians, who

believe that Louis XIV gave them our land in 1663, have been

running what they call a “civilized community” for 350 years.  

It’s like going into the mausoleum, opening the creaking doors

and removing the cobwebs out of these decadent decrepit

buildings in Montreal .  They are now empty and a relic of a

bygone era in Quebec history when the church had absolute

control over the minds of the French-Canadians.  We thought

they had been set free from this oppression.  This hearing gives

us serious cause for concern.  School children in Montreal are

still being taught geography as if we do not exist.  This makes

it difficult for us to receive justice. 


We hope this hearing is the last gasp of the church to maintain

control over the people who were trying to eliminate us 400

years ago.  They will never crush the Mohawks.  At some level,

the Sulpicians know this. 


The presence of a single elderly Mohawk woman made them

nervous, especially since she was smiling.  She learned her

friendly attitude from her ancestors.  The Iroquois always

presented themselves to people in a cordial peaceful manner. 

This is why they are considered the masters of diplomacy. 

This goes against church hierarchy which operates on

intimidation and domination.  If this doesn’t work, they become



The Sulpicians are represented by a lawyer from one of the

most powerful, influential law firms in Canada , Heenan Blaikie. 

This firm is dominated by former prime ministers like Pierre

Trudeau and Jean Chretien who are prominently displayed

on their letterheads.  Heenan Blaikie is always trying to dominate

and control the Mohawks who have been constantly disputing

Canada ’s claim to our lands.  They say Louis XIV gave it to them. 

They can’t explain how it was Louis’ to give.  We never give up

our land and they know that.  The Sulpicians’ history of attempting

 to oppress the Mohawks at Kanehsatake is long and dirty. 

Heenan Blaikie not only represent the Sulpicians, but Canada

hired Heenan Blaikie to represent the Kahehsatake Mohawks

in the land claims negotiations that are currently taking place. 

They sit on both sides. 


The Supreme Court says aboriginal rights are sui generis.  We

guess Heenan Blaikie think this means we are in a class of our

own and normal professional “conflict of interest” rules don’t



Boards of directors, outside accounting and law firms, bankers

and brokers, provincial and federal regulatory agencies and

legislators are either inert or complicit in this double dealing.   


From the farce that took place at the Montreal hearing, the

Sulpicians has a lust for power that corrupts absolutely.  The

catholic church hierarchical system is the model for the colonial

“pecking order.  This is where the higher ups gobble those under



Bertrand Russell said, “Power is a drug, the desire for which

increases with habit”.   Those who achieve the top rung of the

hierarchy begin to believe that their rapacious oppression is

normal in an abnormal world.  To do this, they have to control

the money, the police, the army, the politics and the economy.   


The church could not control all the players in the hearing.  They

wanted conformity, suppression and obedience.  They became

uncomfortable because they could not exercise their

“ecclesiastical tyranny”.   They could not threaten us that we

would go to hell.  We don’t share their cosmogony.


A spark of light can displace darkness.  For Mohawks, the love

of freedom and our belief in human equality permeates our love

of our people.  We all want to be free, to have children, to have

a home, to love and be loved.


When lies face the truth, the truth wins.  If they can’t see it now,

people will look back on this as a very “dark age” indeed.

    Is this the same Notre Dame Basilica that has frozen the staff wages for the past 5 years?

    Scout – I am a little confused about the dates at the beginning of your post
    MNN. Sept. 24, 2007. On Friday, November 23, 2007 Am I not reading it correctly?

  • 2. harpervalley  |  November 26, 2007 at 11:29 pm

    hi sass….i don’t know if it’s one and the same, but sure seems like it, n’est pas?

    the ‘september’ is a typo, it’s listed as november on MNN. thanks, i’ll change it.

  • 3. sassy  |  November 27, 2007 at 9:41 am

    Thanks for the date thingy

    Amazing that this sort of thing still goes on …. what year are we in, oh yes 2007.

    If this were not seriously sad – it could almost by funny in a satirical sort of way.

    The line that really gets me is “We are afraid of Mohawks”, say what???? History shows that if anything the reverse should be true. It must have been hard for some people in the room that day to keep a straight face.

    The article does not seem to state the outcome of this hearing, or has it been determined yet? I think the fellow who was fired should consider legal action, if the union has not already stepped in with such a proposal.

    When those who pretend to represent GOD get it wrong, they really get it WRONG?

  • 4. 900ft Jesus  |  November 27, 2007 at 9:56 am

    violence & organized crime?!!!!! Damn hypocrites think they have special permission from their war-monger god to make shit up and destroy people’s lives.

  • 5. harpervalley  |  November 27, 2007 at 10:10 am

    sassy…..kahentinetha only sent this article along so hopefully they’ll be a follow up. and yes, it is funny in a way , i mean, it sounds like a bunch of school kids. may god be with you 😀

    900, it’s strange what fantasy land will do to some. perhaps we’ll see a new christian theme park complete with house of horrors that include a bunch of non-white people, and the ladder to hell.
