AKWESASNE — Members of the community of Akwesasne are seeking to develop a secure ID card that would solve problems of travelling between the US and Canada.

The Mohawk reserve community near Cornwall, Ontario straddles the border of Canada and the United States.

The Senate Committee on Aboriginal People says the federal government must find solutions to border crossing challenges for Haudenosaunee people from Akwesasne.

The Senate resolved to appoint a representative to examine border crossing rights and application of the Jay Treaty for Haudenosaunee people by the end of 2016.

    CANADA 0000230098 and her executive board do not possess the international authority to rule on an international people as ‘Indians’ in CANADA were and are tracked by them as North American Indians an international designation which presents no border to Indians on Turtle Island except the CANADIAN border which is because of CANADA’s official promulgation of the ‘Doctrine of Discovery’ and stonewalling of the ‘Jay Treaty’. This promulgation is a corporate action and is encapsulated in the old name for the corporation- ‘The DOMINION of CANADA’ and is a correct name as CANADA functioned as the extension of the Imperial Domination plan of England as expressed by Lord McCauley in the British Parliament floor on 2 Feb 1835 – ‘that
    I do not think we would ever CONQUER this country, unless we break the very BACKBONE of this nation, which is her SPIRITUAL and CULTURAL heritage therefore I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose self-esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation.’ CANADA proposed to continue the same policies as initiated by the Imperial crown in CANADA’s address to the Imperial Crown on 17 Dec1867 and 31 May 1869 ‘upon transference of the Territories in question to the CANADIAN Government the claims of the Indian tribes to compensation for lands required for SETTLEMENT will be considered and settled in conformity with the EQUITABLE principles which have uniformly governed the British Crown in Her dealings with the ABORIGINES’. You will note that they intended to use the same principles in use in Australia at that time which was straight up genocide and the genocide was the order of the day here until today. A further point is the legal term ‘equitable’ which refers to the fact that this was a commercial venture so all the other propaganda is exactly that as this obscures the true intent which is the foreign extraction of the wealth of the land which is almost complete.
