INTRODUCTION - The Story Behind 'The Story'

Over the years that CVN has been on the air, I have tried to present perspectives from both the 'bigger picture' perspective, and also the 'BIGGER, bigger picture' perspective.

What do I mean by this?  I refer to the 'bigger picture' perspective as being all the revelations coming forth at this time to expose the lies, frauds and crimes that have been committed against humanity and our planet.

The 'BIGGER, bigger picture' perspective explores more the advanced awareness and understanding as to why these events are happening at this time to help facilitate the current shift in human and planetary consciousness that we seem to have entered into now.

WE as a species are evolving and changing.  Numerous spiritual/religious traditions have written of these times, although religions have generally put in a more fearful perspective. Indigenous traditions worldwide have written about and tried to share not only their Earth wisdom, but also their oral traditions of information in the past that is becoming increasingly more relevant in the present day.

Various indigenous nations have, for example, shared stories of visits from 'sky people' or 'star people' or something similar. These indigenous groups understood full well that we are connected very intimately  to families beyond Earth.

Indigenous wisdom has always been LIFE-honouring; using only what is needed at a time, and using it completely to honour the spirit of the LIFE-source that was used in providing for the people.

The 'global cabal' has long been fearful of the return of this wisdom, and of the world realizing that various indigenous prophecies about the current times are manifesting. They have long sought to control the indigenous nations, in the same way that they control other humans - by turning them into corporate entities and manufacturing their 'consent' through trickery, lies, frauds and the 'colour of law' - the use of commercial rules that have been given the force of law.

It is this practice that forms the basis of the criminal corruption of the legal system.  It is based on 'Admiralty' or 'commercial' law.  A court, as we currently know it in the western world, TECHNICALLY-SPEAKING, can only rule on commercial disputes between consenting commercial entities.

You, as a human being, have surrendered your natural rights and freedoms to an entity called your 'corporate fiction' identity.  It has also been referred to as 'strawman' or 'straw' identity. You can learn a bit more about your strawman/corporate fiction identity in this short video:

Before Canada became a country, the Mohawk Indigenous nation fought alongside the British against the Americans in the American Revolution. As a 'token' of appreciation, the British monarchy deeded a piece of land, land that they had actually stolen from the indigenous of northern 'Turtle Island', the land mass now known as 'Canada'.

The UK monarchy deeded the Mohawks a piece of land through an agreement called the 'Haldimand Agreement'.  This land is bascially located west of Toronto, Ontario, Canada in an area that includes the cities of Brantford, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph and Cambridge.  The monarchy also established a trust fund for the Mohawks.

In 1867, when Canada officially became the country the world knows today, various governments began stealing more and more parcels of land from indigenous nations across the country, including the Mohawks and their Haldimand lands.  Governments also began 'borrowing' money from the Mohawk Trust Fund, to give to other entities to fund various projects while Canada was still growing.  This particular 'nation' of Mohawks became known as the Grand River Mohawks in English terminology. In their language, they are known as the KA-NYEN-GEH-HA-KAH

Over time, the various governments had to get control of the indigenous populations and their lands. The government had to somehow manufacture their consent to become a part of the Corporation of Canada.  Most countries of the world are corporations, and are listed on the Securities and Exchange Commission website as being such.  To a sample of a page from the SEC website: .

As the government got more and more control over the Indigenous nations, they had to create an entity that would give a false illusion that the indigenous nations had 'power' or that they 'had a voice' with the Government of Canada.  This entity was a corporate entity called the 'Assembly of First Nations' or AFN.  This was a group of elected indigenous people who chose to surrender and abandon their traditional ways, and accept the perks and privileges that politicians gave out.

Sadly, the average member of most indigenous nations across Canada have never directly or TRULY benefitted from being affiliated with the AFN.  These nations became known as 'bands', and they are groups that chose to surrender their natural rights, natural freedoms, as well as their lands which are being mined, drilled and abused in countless ways that go against the Earth wisdom of these nations.

There is a piece of corporate/commercial legislation that dictates the 'law' and this 'law' is called the 'Indian Act'. Commercial rules created by wealthy and privileged lawyers hired to protect the corporate interests of the government, while actively denying the indigenous any true democratic say in what they were agreeing to.  The 'elected' (usually meaning bought-out) AFN Band Council was given this power, but also sold out the nations and their heritages.

The Mohawk Initative stems from the exhaustive work being done by several volunteers, in partnership with three primary clans of the Grand River Mohawks in this area: the Wolf Clan, the Bear Clan and the Turtle Clan.

The story is about some Mohawks of three villages and their allies whose attachment to Crown treaties caused them to work together to protect the Grand River Territory and what was left of Tkanatahere GAN-AH-DAH-HEY-LAY - the traditional 5 Nations Hunting Grounds with the British up until after the war of 1812. Long before Canada. The Haldimand Territory was nearly 1 million acres and partially leased - earning revenue for the Mohawks and others of the formerly (American) "Six Nations" - at the end of hostilites. Power of Attorney was vested by "Six Natons" chiefs, warriors, and clan mothers - to Joseph Brant, a Grand River Mohawk (original founders of the League of Peace). Within the next decades following Brant's death, that territory would be reduced to Reservation No. 40 administered by the "Six Nations Elected Band Council" under Federal laws such as the Indian Act.

Documentation has been found to validate and prove the land claim of the Grand River Mohawks, and thus it can show how various governments in Canada have stolen this land without any kind of lawful agreement.  The Grand River Mohawks NEVER SURRENDERED their rights and freedoms to the Assembly of First Nations nor do they recognize the 'Indian Act'.  They are not corporate entities, and they only recognize themselves as 'Natural People', (Rotinoshonni ónhwe) who do not own land, but have only been granted custodianship of the land.  It is their desire to reclaim this land, in order to begin creating honourable and self-sustaining communities that honour the Great Tree of Peace and the Earth wisdom that reflects their responsibility as custodians.

The Mohawks are also now able to prove that monies were 'borrowed' from the trust fund, but were never repaid back.  These debts can be charged interest, compounded yearly since roughly 1867, plus or minus a few years. 

The Mohawk Initiative therefore, represents the will of a 'free and natural' people to reclaim that which was stolen from them and never surrendered, while exposing the harm that has been done to all indigenous nations, not only across Canada, but around the world, because there are global corporate entities that have participated in harm to indigenous nations in other countries. 

The Grand River Mohawks do not seek conflict with either the government or the people.  Indeed, it is the hope of this Mohawk Nation to be able to offer a more holistic and nature-oriented option to humans who no longer wish to be controlled or dominated by corporate entities.  This will require justice in the form of 'truth and reconciliation' as is the custom in indigenous cultures.  They have the proof to challenge legally if necessary, but they would prefer to find a solution that is truly LIFE-honouring in every sense of the word.

The KA-NYEN-GEH-HA-KAH of Grand River observe 'law' through a document called 'The Great Binding' Law - 'Gayanerekowa' which translates into 'The Great Good'.  The 'Gayanerekowa' details the 'laws' or 'wampums' that are the guiding principles.  The Mohawks, like many indigenous nations, do not observe 'law' as white people do.  In the western world, the corporate rules disguised as 'law' immediately suggest conflict.  The 'Gayanerekowa', if I could offer an analogy, would be similar to the days when a handshake or one's own word, was enough to conclude an understanding between the parties. The word 'wampum', although could be loosely considered to be a 'treaty' of sorts is, in actuality, more of an understanding of an accepted protocol, a protocol that honours LIFE in all forms and is for the ‘Highest Good’ or ‘The Great Good’ of all.  If both parties are observing The Great Good, this would alone significantly reduce all major conflicts.

The 'law' as 'agreement' is recognized and honoured as being closer to nature - something which western law does not acknowledge nor recognize at all.

This is a HUGE story, and it has the potential to impact the future of Canada, but also countries around the world.  If the Canadian government is not prepared to do the honourable thing in recognizing the 'naturally free' indigenous nations in Canada, the Mohawks are ready and prepared to use the information in their possession to assert their rights and natural freedoms while co-creating peaceful and harmonious lands that all humans can choose to live on, under the Great Tree of Peace.










In this week’s Mohawk Initiative update:

Canada’s origin story is false. This will not be a surprise to some, but it will certainly come as a surprise to others.

However, we all should not really be surprised because the entire history of the world that currently think we know, is being revealed more and more as as a cunning cover-up at best, and an outright lie at its worst.

Canada is just one of the country’s coming face to face with at least part of this reality at this time.

An article appearing on 10MAY on Toronto’s Globe and Mail website by Kathleen Mahoney steps into the story behind the story. Mahoney is a professor of law at the University of Calgary, a also a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and also the Pierre Elliot Trudeau Foundation.

Mahoney recently spoke at a Big Thinking lecture organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences focusing on a message of resetting of Canada’s origins to parliamentarians on May 10, 2016.

Mahoney writes that: “In 2017 Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Canada’s origin story will be celebrated – the story of the British North America (BNA) Act, the Fathers of Confederation, and the British/French duality that together formed the bedrock of the free, equal, diverse democracy we believe ourselves to be.

But here’s the problem: our origin story is false. In 1996, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples observed, “A country cannot be built on a living lie.” After 150 years in denial, coming to terms with our true origin story is long overdue.

Recognition that indigenous peoples were founders of the nation must be acknowledged in a formal, legal way. Only then will there be a solid foundation for Canada to reconcile its past and lay the foundation for a new relationship with its first peoples.”

She also added that: “The accepted story of Canada’s origin tells us the nation came into being on July 1, 1867. Thirty-six “Fathers of Confederation,” representing the British and the French colonial powers, signed the British North America Act, setting out the governance structure for the new country. Significantly, it expressly protected the English and French languages, cultures and civil rights.

Indigenous Canadians are invisible in this origin story even though they were present on the land for thousands of years prior to Confederation and without their contributions Canada would not be the country it is today.

For example, the fur trade – the backbone of the economy for more than 250 years – depended upon indigenous hunters, oarsmen, guides, and traders for its viability. Without the fur trade, the colonial ambitions of exploration, settlement, and economic and social development would have failed miserably.

But by far the most significant aspect was the vast tracts of land acquired through treaty negotiations with the indigenous peoples – lands that have produced immense riches, making Canada one of the wealthiest nations in the world.

But indigenous people did not receive recognition for their contributions to building Canada, nor a fair share of the ensuing wealth. Instead, they were classified as non-citizens and subjected to unequal treatment based on racist philosophical and legal justifications – namely, the discovery doctrine and the formal equality principle.”

To many, this may not seem as important, because it was something that happened so long ago. Many also seem to feel that the issue of indigenous residential schools was a long time ago, and may not have as much relevance in dealing with the so-called ‘more important’ indigenous issues of today.

Bruce Cheadle, writing for the Canadian Press via on 10MAY has reported that nine years after the creation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the government of Canada has this week declared and confirmed its full support of the 2007 declaration.

According to Cheadle, Canadian Indigenous Affairs Minister, Dr. Carolyn Bennett earned a standing ovation from a UN forum in New York by announcing that Canada is now a full supporter of the 2007 declaration, "without qualification.” Bennett was quoted as saying that: “There’s nothing frightening about adopting and implementing this declaration.”

The Aboriginal Peoples TV Network, APTN reported on its website on 10MAY that Assembly of First Nations Chief Perry Bellegarde, and other corporate indigenous leaders were quick to praise the announcement by the government. CVN commented last week on Bellegarde and conflict of interest regarding his title and the fulfillment of what he claims to be doing for indigenous people across Canada.

CLICK TO VIEW  - 10MAY Jorge Barrera, : Bellegarde urged Trudeau in letter to declare UNDRIP support at UN.

PDF: UN DECLARATION DOCUMENT -  PDF document:  UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The irony is that, even in receiving praise for embracing this declaration, the Canadian government and Minister Bennett are very much afraid to deal directly with the indigenous groups that have maintained their natural status, and did not surrender their rights, lands and freedoms to the corporate entities nor to the corporate Indian legislation.

Cheadle also notes that: “The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers released a discussion paper Tuesday that says the industry backs the UN declaration and will work with governments and Aboriginal Peoples to see that it can be accommodated within Canadian law.”

Reading between the lines, the lawyers of the petroleum producers have stated that they fully support the declaration and will work with indigenous within Canadian law. That is a very key protectionist statement made, that many will not understand. Within Canadian law… keeping in mind that ‘law’ in Canada is based on commercial rules and not true law. As long as the producers are dealing with corporate entities and commercial rules, they will still be able to take advantage of indigenous groups. Keep in mind also that Canada has indicated its preliminary intent to participate within the TTIP and the TPP international trading agreements which also means that international corporations, meaning the US, will be able to sue Canada and further erode the rights, lands and freedoms of indigenous people across Canada because it is under ‘Canadian law’.

Sadly, there is a high degree of hypocrisy in what is being said publicly, and what is being done privately.

As CVN is trying to teach listeners, the language of what is being said is important to consider. what we are dealing with in our present is a direct consequence of what we have allowed to happen, knowingly or unknowingly in our past. As it has been said: “ If we don’t make peace with our past, it will keep showing up in our present”.

Josh Ostroff, writing for the Huffington Post on 12MAY reports that: “ Inuk throat-singer Tanya Tagaq, an award-winning artist known for taking bold stances on indigenous issues like the seal hunt, posted a stark reminder during the week that Canada finally embraced the 2007 UN Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples, of how recent Canada's painful history actually is.”

Tagaq, who is 41, posted a letter sent by former PM Harper sent in 2008 apologizing for her time spent as a student in ‘Indian Residential Schools’

Harper’s apology appears to have meant nothing, given that governments treatment of indigenous people since that time.

According to Tagaq : “ "I'm posting this because people think this happened in the deep past. The damage inflicted by residential schools is relegated into history by the collective consciousness of our country. Not only did the last school close down until 1996, but the damage inflicted poisoned our stream of thought for generations to come.

Our children were forcibly taken. Anyone executing own own laws were imprisoned themselves, the implemented judicial system is so foreign and corrupt people do not heal from it. When the children came home from residential schools broken with no language, steeped in violence and sex, this cycle got perpetuated. I have friends that have gone to jail for simply protecting the innocent from violence. The equation was created to equal us eradicated.

We are still here.”

There are several reasons that could be argued as to why all of this is coming up for healing at this time. The energies flowing through our solar system and through our planet are contributing to this shift, and it is a shift that has been predicted in numerous indigenous prophecies. One such prophecy speaks of the southern condor meeting and flying with the northerN eagle. What exactly does this mean? John Perkins, author of ‘The New Confessions of an Economic Hitman’ who spoke to CVN a few weeks ago, shares this message from a separate video:

CLICK TO VIEW IN A SEPARATE WINDOW  - Published 2008 - Omega Institute for Holistic Studies via : John Perkins: Prophecy of the Eagle & the Condor.

The indigenous prophecies are slowly beginning to make more sense to people as this information is shared.

Specifically related to the Mohawks this week, it can be reported that movements are continuing within various corporate-entity Mohawk groups to distance themselves from the Six Nations corporate entity. CVN has reported in the last couple of weeks on this, and information can be found in the Mohawk Initiative updates from the link on the Cosmic Vision News homepage.

Nahnda Garlow, reporting for the Two Row Times on 11MAY noted that: “Approximately 200 people attended the monthly meeting of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy at Six Nations of the Grand River on Saturday to hear the rationale behind the physical removal of Aaron Detlor, a lawyer representing the Haudenausenee Development Institute.

Without making it too confusing to listeners who are still learning about the numerous indigenous groups and their status as ‘corporate’ or ‘non-corporate’ the events are leading to the following outcome.

Word is beginning to spread of the Mohawk Initiative to peacefully and lawfully reclaim its lands and its historical debts from governments and corporate entities. Word is also spreading about the corporatization of indigenous groups, and how this has not led to the freedom that was claimed or believed would be attained.

The lawyer, Detlor, has been called out in his participation within the corporate enslavement scheme of the various indigenous groups within The Six Nations including the Mohawks, but not including the Wolf, Bear and Turtle clans who never surrendered their lands, rights and freedoms.

The movement is beginning to shift back towards becoming true onkwhehon:we or natural peoples. People are beginning to seek and learn more about the Initiative, and how it has the potential to serve all indigenous groups under the Great Tree of Peace.

Detlor was apparently fired from his position, and was told never to come back. In the article, one Mohawk clan mother, Shirley Hill was quoted as saying that: “ I hate to say it. This man here [Detlor] calls himself Haudenosaunee, Mohawk. Thats what you call yourself? You brought awful things to our people. If you don’t know who you are it will show. There’s a lot of things that my people have been telling me; a lot of things. The disrespect. That’s not the way its supposed to be. You see how upset the people are.”

Events are unfolding on numerous levels, and although it may not be clear to everyone just yet, the unification that is beginning to happen within the Mohawks can be just one domino in the chain that ultimately leads to the removal of corporate and commercial power over, not only indigenous groups across Canada, but also for non-indigenous people seeking to live outside of corporate enslavement themselves.





In this week’s Mohawk Initiative update, things continue to get a little strange in the Grand River area of Brantford where the Mohawk Wolf, Bear and Turtle clans reside.

Since CVN has begun telling the story of the clans that have not surrendered their lands, their rights nor their freedoms to the corporate entities known as the Government of Canada, the Assembly of First Nations and the commercial legislation known as the ‘Indian Act’, the challenge has been to receive the acknowledgement and recognition that is deserved, while being ignored by all the entities that are threatened by the claims and the evidence backing those claims.

We’ve been learning how there are both corporate-entity Mohawks and non-corporate onkwehon:we, a Mohawk term meaning the naturally-free people existing outside of corporate surrender. The corporate, First Nations entity of Six Nations is the group claiming to represent all Mohawks and has been invited to Ottawa to meet with Prime Minister Trudeau, while the Onkwehon:we Mohawks have been ignored, despite having proof of their lawful and legitimate land and debt claims.

Perhaps the following article may assist some in better understanding this distinction.
Chinta Puxley wrote an article for the Hamilton Spectator on 11DEC2014 reporting on the election of the new Assembly of First Nations Chief. Keep in mind this was in 2014. She wrote that: “ The new national chief of the Assembly of First Nations is warning it will no longer be business as usual when it comes to development on First Nations land.
In a fiery speech to assembly delegates in Winnipeg, Saskatchewan’s Perry Bellegarde singled out pipelines and energy development as one of the frontlines in his battle to put First Nations on equal footing with the rest of Canada. “

Bellegarde was quoted as saying the following at that time: “ To the people across this great land, I say to you, that the values of fairness and tolerance which Canada exports to the world, are a lie when it comes to our people," Bellegarde said. "Canada will no longer develop pipelines, no longer develop transmission lines, or any infrastructure, on our lands as business as usual. That is not on. We will no longer accept poverty and hopelessness while resource companies and governments grow fat off our lands and territories and resources. If our lands and resources are to be developed, it will be done only with our fair share of the royalties, with our ownership of the resources and jobs for our people. It will be done on our terms and our timeline."

Huxley noted that it was this next comment that got the loudest response from the crowd: “ Canada is Indian land”, he said. “This is my truth, and this is the truth of our peoples.”

Bellegarde won that election, after running a campaign that focused on a pledge to restore pride among First Nations and focus on self-determination. He had told reporters that the assembly under his leadership would be “respectful and it’s going to be relevant to First Nations people.”
Said Bellegarde: “As indigenous people, we have the inherent right to self-determination," Bellegarde said. "That means the ability to say 'yes' to development or 'no' to development.”

Bernard Valcourt, former prime minister Stephen Harper’s minister for the corporate-named Aboriginal Affairs ministry had issued a statement at that time stating that: “ the federal government believes aboriginal people "should have the same quality of life, the same opportunities and the same choices as all other Canadians." - 11DEC2014 Chinta Puxley, : ‘Canada is Indian land,’ new chief declares.

This is a classic example of how Canadians and people worldwide are misled by statements made by politicians, bankers, lawyers and even journalists.

Let’s walk through this for a better understanding. A chief gets elected to represent the corporate entity Assembly of First Nations on a pledge to restore pride and self-determination. Immediately there is a conflict because the corporate entity Assembly of First Nations cannot restore self-determination of the indigenous peoples. At the very best, all it can do is brainwash its members into accepting the illusion of self-determination - the very same illusion that Canadians think they have as corporate entities within the corporation of Canada. The Assembly of First Nations is fighting for the very same privilege of being enslaved that non-indigenous Canadians have been living under.

Bellegard’s claims in 2014 that Canada would no longer build pipelines on ‘Indian’ land has obviously not been honoured, as there has been significant pipeline issues since then, arguably the most notorious one being the Keystone XL pipeline. Bellegarde has said his leadership would be respectful and relevant for the First Nations. Based on what I am personally seeing with regard to indigenous issues in Canada at this time, I’m struggling to see where that leadership was respectful and relevant at any time since 2014.

Had Bellegarde truly wanted to focus on self-determination for the indigenous people of Canada, he would have been bound to tell them the truth about how they have been enslaved to corporate entities, just like the rest of Canadians.

His claim that ‘Canada is Indian land - that this is his truth and that this is the truth of his people’ is not a compliment. “Indian is corporate term, and he just told his people that Canada is corporate Indian land, not the land of onkwehon:we indigenous people’s. Had the indigenous people been truly informed of the nature of their enslavement to corporate entities, they surely would not have cheered such a comment. Indeed, he should have been thrown out, right then and there.

Bellegarde was claiming to be pushing for the right to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to development on their terms. There has been a massive conflict of interest taking place on behalf of the various governments, the Assembly of First Nations and also within some of the individual First Nations also.

Minister Valcourt did not help with his comments either that aboriginal people should have the same quality of life and the same choices. Even though he was technically speaking the truth, his language was veiled with the same trick that commercial legal language has.

What Valcourt was really saying is that aboriginal people should have the same corporate controls and the same, uninformed consent to those controls as other Canadians.

The legal language tricks people into consenting to things based on one understanding of the English, even though legalese has given different definitions to the same terms. This is how Canadians and indigenous alike have been tricked into corporate slavery without our informed, democratic consent.

Relating to the situation in Attawapiskat, it was reported in the Two Row Times on 29APR that the federal minister for Indigenous and Northern Affairs, Dr. Carolyn Bennett and the MP for that region Charlie Angus issued a statement after visiting Attawapiskat. The article reported that: “ On April 19, we had the opportunity to visit the Attawapiskat First Nation to meet with community leaders, members and youth to listen to them first-hand about their challenges. Since Attawapiskat declared a state of emergency, federal officials from Health Canada and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada have been working together with provincial and First Nations partners to provide immediate support to the community.”

The minister and MP also stated that: “To truly improve the wellness, change the socio-economic reality and bring hope to Indigenous communities, we must work in genuine partnership on the long-term investments in infrastructure, water and education that are needed, based on community-driven solutions. We also heard from the youth the importance of adequate housing and healing. Starting immediately, we will work with the community to plan for additional housing so that it will be possible to return the healing centre back to its original use as a place for all community members to seek wellness.” - 29APR : Statement from Carolyn and MP Charlie Angus following visit to Attawapiskat.

Yet, as reported in a recent Mohawk Initiative update, it has been revealed that the Attawapiskat Nation, has, apparently, been sitting on a huge stock portfolio consisting of many harmful energy and petroleum companies, the very same ones that Bellegarde was claiming he would stand up against.

This week now there is, suspiciously, an oil leak that has found its way into the Grand River in the city of Kitchener, not too far from Brantford. Investigations are underway to determine the cause and the preliminary report was that some kind of petroleum-based product came from a sewer somewhere in the area. - 01MAY Paige Desmond, : ‘Significant quantity’ of petroleum spills into Grand in Kitchener.

In recent weeks, since the Grand River Mohawks have started sending legal letters to various entities, certain things have been suspiciously starting to happen. Flags and Mohawk symbols have appeared at an occupation of a government office in Toronto, without the consent and support of the Mohawk Wolf, Bear and Turtle clans. Also recently, a group of men physically threw out a lawyer of the Haudenausenee Development Institute. This can be reviewed in last week’s Initiative update on the Cosmic Vision News homepage under Mohawk Initiative.

The rising energies of the shifting consciousness appears to be having an impact in the Grand River area. CVN has received word that, in view of these recent events that have taken place, seemingly to cause disunity among the corporate and onkwehon:we Mohawks, that potentially historic discussions have begun among members from both groups, with an aim to understanding more deeply this issue of corporate slavery and perhaps abolishing it and finally uniting all the Mohawks as onkwehon:we in the region once again under the name of the Grand River Mohawks. More details are expected in the coming week or two and this may be a very positive and empowering example of people uniting together for the Highest Good of all, under the Great Tree of Peace.





It is one thing for leaders to claim that they want one thing, while acting in a way that offers the illusion that the leader is acting on it, but in reality is merely creating another channel by which the illusion can be marketed and consented to, without the people involved being any more aware of what happened.

Such has been the case over the last hundred years at least, and arguably for much longer than this. One of the illusions has been the criminally fraudulent system of fiat banking with its money-created-out-of-thin-air policies. Another has been the illusion of the criminally corrupt and fraudulent system of commercial law that is practiced in Canada and around the world, treating everyone and everything as a corporate entity, so that commercial rules can be applied to everyone for the profit of corporations and the global elites. Another of the bigger illusions, the illusion that has allowed the other illusions to play themselves out, is the illusion of democracy - this belief that the people have been given that their vote actually and truly means something, when history has now taught us that this is just simply not the case.

I’ll return to the issue and the illusion of democracy coming up in a few more minutes.

It’s when people become more informed about the corruptions and the enslavement that have been imposed upon them all, that they begin to start asking very uncomfortable and very inconvenient questions of those in power, seeking accountability, and seeking action.

The problem and the challenge is that many politicians themselves have no concept of the ‘bigger picture’ of what is happening in the world, and the odds are even greater still that those same people have no idea about the ‘BIGGER, bigger picture’ of the nature of the human and planetary shifts taking place at this time and the meaning of it all.

They are afraid to act for one of two reasons: 1. They either do know at some level what is going on, and they are being bribed or threatened to continue to pull the cabal line or 2. They are blissfully yet sadly ignorant to all that is going on, and they get overwhelmed with the amount of information that informed people are throwing at them, information that they have not had time to learn, because they have too busy learning information that is relevant to keeping them in a job that depends upon them being ignorant and ill-informed.

At some point however, if the people have genuinely and peacefully attempted to reach out and seek involvement and engagement from the leadership, and the leadership is unable and/or unwilling to engage, a point comes when the people may have to choose to take issues to the next level, and this gets a bit tricky because the global cabal is actively seeking violent conflict now, so people have to consider carefully the consequences of what steps of action can be taken, so as to avoid giving the cabal-controlled police forces the justification they want to use force, while still getting the issues addressed that need to be addressed.

Within the Mohawk community, and as we are witnessing worldwide, people are beginning to approach that infamous ‘red line’ where something more drastic must be done when all sincere and peaceful options have been exhausted.

It was back on 16MAR in a Canadian Press article appearing on the website that reported that: “ Aboriginal gangs are proliferating across Canada as criminal organizations exploit the intense poverty and squalid conditions of First Nations communities, says a top officer with the RCMP's aboriginal police division.

The gangs' stock-in-trade includes drug distribution, prostitution and theft, and they're only growing more sophisticated, said the RCMP.

"The gangs are brought on by poverty," said RCMP Sgt. Merle Carpenter, who holds the aboriginal gangs file with the National Aboriginal Policing Services.

"They intimidate by violence and these aboriginal youth are just wanting to belong to somebody.”

The vast majority of uninformed people would very likely have just blamed it on the indigenous people, and supported all police methods to incarcerate them. When I was young, I was guilty of doing exactly that, because my school never properly educated us on corporate entities, and how governments made treaties, put groups of indigenous people onto reservations, limited their access to the rest of the world; destroyed their traditional hunting grounds, rendering them unable to survive according to their natural ways, and then blaming them for lashing out at what we have done to them.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, RCMP, treat them as inferiors and the indigenous have been used as an outlet and target for certain members of police forces that are psychologically unstable and looking for ways to use violence and abuse the power placed in them. The court system sees them as commercial entities to be exploited, and even more so in the years since multinational and major national corporations started unlawfully expropriating or stealing lands that were deeded to them.

The CBC article continues: “Observers say the explosive growth can't be combated unless the federal government steps up and addresses the woeful conditions underlying the startling trend. "It's so simple that it's hard to understand why nothing's happening," said Steve Koptie, an aboriginal social worker who spent several years working in the mental health field for 21 reserves in Ontario's northwest.

"It's all about education and employment. If we don't get youth educated and we don't get them … participating in the workforce, we're going to continue to watch this deterioration.”

Koptie has been sold the same line that the missionaries were told when they arrived here: that the indigenous had to be converted to the ways of the white man, lest they continue to be known as ‘savages’.

History has shown who the real savages were, and the savagery of the corporate entities controlling Canada was not only open and blatant, but it was also sneaky, underhanded and done without the knowing and informed consent of anyone involved. The same has been done to the people of most, if not all, western nations.

It is also important for me to state that just because I am using this particular Canadian example, the same practice is in place across Canada and even around the world, so it is not unique.

This week, in what will seem confusing, even to those who have been following the Mohawk Initiative, energies of tension are beginning to rise, but unfortunately, there may be negative consequences to the naturally free Wolf, Bear and Turtle Mohawk clans in the Grand River Area.

Even if one does not understand it fully, it is important to at least be aware that there are both corporate Mohawk entities and naturally free Mohawk indigenous clans existing in the Grand River/Brantford area.

The entity that is currently recognized by the Canadian corporate government is a corporate entity called The Six Nations. The Six Nations consist of an elected band council, representing, I am told, less than 10% of the population of Mohawks on the Haldimand lands.

This entity has been claiming to speak on behalf of even the naturally-free Mohawks; the Wolf, Turtle and Bear clans. This is at least partly why the Chiefs of these three clans are not being acknowledged at this time in their land claims nor their pursuit to be paid back of stolen historical debts.

It has led to a fracture within the Mohawk Nation, and it could be argued that this was intended - so that the naturally-free members of remaining clans could be driven into submission. The true and natural Chiefs are not being listened to, because they are perceived as not having received the acknowledgement of the government in order to get anything accomplished.

Yet, even this is not exactly working. Nahnda Garlow, in a The Two Row Times article on 27APR has reported that: “ Robert Aaron Detlor is a Canadian lawyer from Toronto, Ontario who has been representing the Haudenosaunee citizens of Six Nations of the Grand River via the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council (HCCC) and the Haudenosaunee Development Institute (HDI) since 2007.

Detlor was evicted from Six Nations in a community led action Tuesday morning. This follows almost an entire year of accusations and evidence raised by Haudenosaunee citizens at Six Nations, saying Detlor has been misrepresenting their interests.”

It starts to get confusing here, but this is why indigenous worldwide have been able to be controlled. IF I am understanding this situation correctly, I believe it goes something like this:
The Canadian government recognizes only legitimate corporate bands.
The Six Nations has this recognition, and are claiming this according to that recognition under criminally fraudulent commercial law. This entity is operating under the illusion that they have the support of all Mohawks, including those that have not surrendered their rights, freedoms or their lands to the corporate entities.
The Mohawks following the Six Nations have been sold the illusion that the Canadian government is truly committed to their interests.
The HDI is a corporate entity that is allegedly screwing the corporate entity known as the Six Nations.
The Six Nations are crying foul, and now members of a men’s group in the Six Nations have now forcefully removed a lawyer from the HDI offices, triggering a potentially violent confrontation that involves only the corporate entities and not the naturally-free clans within the same region.

CLICK TO VIEW SOURCE  - 27APR Nanda Garlow, : Aaron Detlor and the Haudenosaunee Development Institute.

There is a natural conflict of interest here. The Canadian government deals with corporate entities that have lawyers. Lawyers are those called to serve the BAR and thus have no loyalty to anything other than corporate interests. Having a BAR lawyer, to represent a corporate Indigenous entity and expecting that lawyer to honourably serve the interests of Mohawk people is similar to putting a fox into a chicken coup, and asking the fox to guard the chickens. It isn’t going to happen, at least not honourably.

The illusion is that men’s council and members of all indigenous nations that have surrendered their rights and freedoms, all believe, either rightly or wrongly, that they are acting in the interests of their people, and the government has marketed one particular illusion that these bands have become dependent upon or addicted to. They are fighting for the so-called ‘right’ to continue receiving privileges as corporate slaves that they should be receiving as naturally-free humans.

It is the same for most humans around the world. We defend, sometimes violently, our right to be slaves within a system that gives us the illusion that we are free.

The expression is therefore correct in that: “None are more hopelessly enslaved, than those who falsely believe that they are free.”

Given all the actions lately by the Grand River Mohawks to re-assert their power, it could raise some questions of suspicion as to why the corporate entities are suddenly active with actions that could be interpreted by the media and the public as being hostile? Last week, it was reported that Mohawks were involved in the occupation of the offices of the Ministry for Indigenous and Northern Affairs in Toronto.

This week, Mohawks are reported as taking violent action against a lawyer. This lawyer has the protection still of the Law Society of Upper Canada, and it just so happens that the same Law Society is one of the debtors to the Grand River Mohawks for historical debt repayment.

Therefore, there are grounds to suspect that there are people conspiring to cause trouble, with the intent of discrediting the legitimate Mohawk claims by giving greater attention to the actions of some Mohawks who do not represent the vast majority of Mohawks in the region.

Spokesperson for the Mohawk Workers, Bill Squire reported last week, that they are not able to control all the members and their actions, because the legitimate Chiefs have been publicly shunned by government and media.

This is why the Mohawk Initiative is becoming so much more important at this time, and as time goes on, hopefully the CVN listeners will come to understand the great significance that this story is going to represent for indigenous people, not only in Canada but also worldwide.

Another example occurred this week in Saskatoon, a city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited a school there to speak with children.

Ryan Maloney, reporting for The Huffington Post on 27APR writes that: “ A high school student in Saskatoon put Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the spot Wednesday by asking how he will right the wrongs faced by Canada's indigenous peoples, including "Third World" living conditions and acts of “genocide."
A CBC video, posted in YouTube covered this exchange:

CLICK TO VIEW SOURCE IN A SEPARATE WINDOW  - 28APR2016 CBC News via YouTube : Trudeau takes questions from Indigenous high school students in Saskatoon

Personally, I take exception to Trudeau’s comments that the government cannot fix this, alone, and that it is going to take many more billions of taxpayer dollars. He states that the government, indigenous nations and Canadians must work together, but he refuses to acknowledge the external force that highjacks and enslave governance worldwide, and this is the global banking cabal and its many factions. Considering the fact that Trudeau has yet to acknowledge the leaders of the naturally free indigenous nations across the country, this raises some doubt as to the sincerity of Trudeau’s desire to work with indigenous people, but instead only work with the corporate entities who are already under enslavement anyway.

The Government of Canada COULD very easily fix the indigenous situation by allowing indigenous groups to grow hemp and begin selling it, while creating all kinds of new industries that hemp is already well-known for.

There are very cheap, and very easy solutions that could be implemented, but it is not in the best interests of governments nor of corporate entities to allow this.

Specifically related to the Mohawk Initiative this however, I have been given permission to report that a late letter has been received in the office of the Wolf Clan Chief from from the Attorney General of Canada, Jody Wilson-Raybould. This letter suggests to the Mohawks that the issue has been handed over to the minister responsible, Dr. Carolyn Bennett. Meetings are currently in the process of being negotiated, and a further update is expected next week.

In the meantime, Mohawk worker spokesperson Bill Squire informs CVN that he would like to reaffirm his message from last week, stating that the naturally-free Wolf, Turtle and Bear Mohawk clans do not seek any kind of physical confrontation with the government or the people at this time. They are not involved with, nor do they support ANY Mohawk activity being undertaken by the Mohawk corporate entities and individuals acting under their direction and jurisdiction. They DO seek to reclaim their lands and their stolen funds and if this can be done honourably through a truth and reconciliation meeting, then this is their preferred course of action. Having said this however, if it turns out that the government is not prepared to act honourably, then more forceful actions may become necessary, although every intention will be made to minimize impact upon Canadians who are not directly involved.

Coming up shortly, a bit of a lesson on what ‘reality’ is, or might be, according to those perceiving it.





In this week’s Mohawk Initiative update, several events outside of the Grand River Mohawk community have been taking place that are worthy of noting this week, as indigenous issues are brought more and more into general public awareness.

There is one story of concern however, and sadly, it is not an isolated story, but this particular story is the one that seems to be getting the attention of the media.

This is also not the first time that this particular community has been featured in the news. Back in 2012-2013 this same community was embroiled in a housing crisis during the winter. It was at this time that Teresa Spence, the elected band chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation, went to Ottawa and conducted a six week hunger strike that got international media coverage to the issues facing indigenous nations. The prime minister at that time, Stephen Harper, had been refusing to meet with her, although the Liberal leader Justin Trudeau did make the public gesture to meet with her and hear about the issues.

CLICK TO VIEW .  27AUG2013 : Attawapiskat Election Today Puts Theresa Spence On Hot Seat.

CLICK TO VIEW  - 12AUG2015, Carmel Kilkenny, Radio-Canada International : Chief Theresa Spence resigns.

That hunger strike brought her enough media coverage that allowed her to get re-elected as band chief a number of months later. However, Spence resigned as chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation two years later, in August of 2015. Now, it seems that there is a suicide crisis breaking out in this band as a number of youth have decided that it is no longer worth living. A question is arising however about who is responsible for this situation.

A CBC article by Duncan McCue on 18APR suggests that the problems facing indigenous nations in crisis are all within the community, and that it is the community that must create the solutions. McCue’s article compares the remote Attawapiskat First Nation with the urban-based Snuneymuxw First Nation in Nanaimo, British Columbia on Canada’s west coast. This First Nation formerly had suicide problems but they have now addressed the issue, claiming to have done it on their own. In this week’s FINAL WORDS, I’ll offer a commentary on this article suggesting that all the solutions to an indigenous community in crisis are within the community itself - an opinion that I choose to challenge.

CLICK TO VIEW  - 18APR Duncan McCue, : For First Nations facing suicide crisis, the solution is rooted in the community.

There is sadly however, another piece of information that has not received a lot of attention regarding this community and this chief. This information seems to suggest that the youth of Attawapiskat were betrayed not only by governments, but perhaps also by their own leadership.

An opinion letter appearing on the news website from 13JAN2013 contained what appears to be research by an individual, Wally Keeler, which implies that the Attawapiskat First Nation, at least at that time, had a significant stock portfolio of major corporations, many of which are connected to the global cabal and responsible for environmental destruction, something that many indigenous peoples are beginning to rise up against.

Keeler acknowledges all the attention and accolades placed upon Spence during her hunger strike, but then he reveals his information. According to Keeler in his letter: “ The Attawapiskat Trust has a stock portfolio that would make any Liberal, leftist and/or environmentalist proud to hang their eagle feather next to this corporate nest egg.

The Trust holds a hefty number of productive shares in eight Canadian gas and oil corporations, as well as two pipeline corporations; Pembina Pipeline and the much beloved, Enbridge.

Off-shore the Trust holds Occidental Petroleum, Exxon Mobile, Petroleo Brasileiro, a huge chunk of Vanceinfo Technologies, a Chinese off-shore software developer, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, electronics giant Seimens, and then there’s that darling of Liberals and leftists everywhere, Haliburton Co. the company that was controlled by former US Vice President Dick Cheney in 1995. This company has profitted excessively from all the war-related contracts stemming from the 'War Of Terror' that began with 9/11. ”

CLICK TO VIEW  - 08JUN2011 Pratap Chatterjee, : Dick Cheney's Halliburton: a corporate case study

What is hypocritical about this is that many indigenous nations are fighting against Enbridge for the damage being done by their pipelines, and yet this chief and her husband appear to be profiting from the very same company that their brothers and sisters are fighting against. This leader has claimed to be fighting for her people, and yet she is profiting from the corporations that are stealing and destroying their lands, their way of life and their culture. Is it any wonder, therefore, why young people are committing suicide? So, it is becoming increasingly and vitally important to understand the context from which this every complicated indigenous issues arises.

As has been mentioned many times on this newscast, there are primarily, two indigenous groups in Canada and arguably other countries. There is the corporate entity indigenous bands, that surrendered their rights and freedoms to the corporate Canadian government and also to the corporate Assembly of First Nations and also to the commercial contract, also knowns as ‘legislation’ called the ‘Indian Act’. Then there are the groups that live naturally free of corporate enslavement because they chose to not surrender their rights, their freedoms nor their lands to corporate interests.

The problems however, is that corporate interests have continued to impose their will upon those truly free indigenous nations, knowing that these nations will likely not have access to the kind of legal information that would help them to defend their claims and rights.

This is, essentially, what the Mohawk Initiative is about: providing the legal precedent that will allow the Mohawks, and perhaps eventually all indigenous nations choosing to live truly free of corporate enslavement, to reclaim this freedom, and work together with the rapidly increasing number of awake and aware people who are wanting to live in ways that are more harmonious and peaceful to humanity and to our planet.

The suicide crisis in Attawapiskat became so critical that an emergency debate was called on the issue. In this audio from on 12APR, the following exchange took place between the Minister of Health, Jane Philpott, and the NDP member of parliament representing the Attawapiskat First Nation, Charlie Angus:

AUDIO CLIP: CVN 22APR CBC Attawapiskat Crisis Emergency Debate in Parliament.

CLICK TO VIEW  - 12APR Susana Mas, Peter Zimonjic, : Attawapiskat suicide crisis: MPs hold emergency debate over suicide attempts.

If you were listening closely, you may heard Angus mention the government use of ‘band-aid’ measures, a term that means spending a lot of money to fix the immediate problem, without fully addressing the root source or the cause of all the problems in the first place. You may have noticed as well, that both of them are focusing on getting the community access to the ‘mental health’ counselling..assuming that by forcing indigenous youth to submit to a western-style, white man’s way of ‘counselling’ will somehow fix the problem.

The government claims to be spending 300 million on getting this help for communities…but this same money could probably have been better used training these communities to grow hemp and build biospheres, where food could be grown through hydroponics and aquaponics projects. Giving people practical skills to allow them to feel useful is far better than merely dumping a whole bunch of high-priced mental health counsellors into a crisis situation to brainwash them is not beneficial.

As you can perhaps now begin to appreciate, things get very complicated when the global cabal gets involved, and this is how they like it, because it means that the message given to the public can be vague and convoluted, even if it contains some elements of truth.

CVN spoke with Bill Squire, spokesperson for the Grand River Mohawks. We will hear more from him in a moment, but this is what he specifically had to say about the situation in Attawapiskat:

AUDIO CLIP: CVN 22APR Bill Squire, Mohawk Workers comment on Attawapiskat situation.

Squire mentions the Indian Act, this magical, corporate commercial document of enslavement known as legislation.

Bob Joseph in a article on 13APR noted 21 points about the Indian Act, that many people may not know. The following are a sample of the most important points. Joseph writes that the Indian Act:

“ - Denied women status
- Introduced residential schools
- Created reserves
- Renamed individuals with European names
- Restricted First Nations from leaving reserve without permission from the Indian agent
- Could expropriate portions of reserves for roads, railways and other public works, as well as move an entire reserve away from a municipality if it was deemed expedient
- Forbade First Nations from forming political organizations
- Prohibited anyone, First Nation or non-First Nation, from soliciting funds for First Nation legal claims without special license from the Superintendent General. (this 1927 amendment granted the government control over the ability of First Nations to pursue land claims) ‘Fox guarding the hen house’.

- Prohibited sale of ammunition to First Nations
- Imposed the "band council" system
- Forbade First Nations from speaking their native language
- Forbade First Nations from practicing their traditional religion
- Denied First Nations the right to vote
- Created permit system to control First Nations ability to sell products from farms
- Created under the British rule for the purpose of subjugating one race — Aboriginal Peoples

The full list will be in the link for this story in the show summary.

This is what commercial legislation has done to the indigenous nations that have given up their rights, freedoms and their lands. It is also similar legislation, but on a grander scale, that enslaves humans to criminally fraudulent banking and legal systems.

It was the day after this information about the Indian Act was posted, that another article appeared on the Globe And Mail website on the 14th. In this article by Cesar Jaramillo, he writes that Canada has lost all credibility when it comes to human rights. In this article, Jaramillo is specifically referencing Canada’s arms deals with Saudi Arabia, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Human rights abuses have been going on with the indigenous nations since before Canada became a country - something that the Mohawk Initiative intends to prove.

A second Globe and Mail article on the same day by Tanya Kappa and Hayden King echoes a bit of what Squire said moments ago. The article writes that: “ The response from Canadians to these states of emergency has followed a predictable pattern: Suicides (or suicide attempts) lead to calls for help; there are news headlines; sad prime ministerial tweets; the dispatching of crisis teams; and repeat.

Explaining the source these crises is relatively straightforward. But communities know the solutions, too: authentic opportunities for the full reclamation of our identities – our languages, our cultures, our traditions and our relationship with the land and waters. This would require restored jurisdiction, honoured treaties, health care and education. This would bring an end to being forced to live in conditions of poverty.

If we want to end indigenous suffering, we must end colonization “

CLICK TO VIEW  - 14APR Tanya Kappo, Hayden King, : If we want to end indigenous suffering, we must end colonization.

It is this that the Mohawk Initiative seeks to address on behalf of themselves and also indigenous groups across Canada and around the world.

Specifically related to the Mohawks this week, there is not much to add regarding any positive feed back from letters that have been sent. There was however a protest involving Idle No More and Black Lives Matter protestors, who began to occupy offices of the Indigenous and Northern Affairs ministry in Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The occupation in Toronto was of particular concern to the Grand River Mohawks because the media was showing images of protestors with Mohawk flags and images.

Bill Squire spoke to CVN on this, and wanted to make clear that any images or references to Mohawk involvement did not come with the official sanction of the Grand River Mohawks:

AUDIO CLIP: CVN 22APR Bill Squire Statement: Grand River Mohawks are NOT involved in, or associated with Toronto occupation event.

The CBC reported on 21APR that the occupation in Toronto has ended, nine days after it began. Protests are still ongoing across Canada.

The Grand River Mohawks have stated that it is their clear and preferred intention to seek to resolve all issues in the spirit of truth and reconciliation, and they do not seek to intentionally disrupt the daily lives of Canadians and of commerce. This does not mean however that this step may become necessary at some point, if the parties that have been named in the Mohawk Initiative do not seek to sit down and address all concerns honourably and with respect to humans and to the Great Tree of Peace.









In this week’s Mohawk update, an interesting little turn has taken place in the bigger story involving the Mohawks of the Grand River.

In the city of Barrie, Ontario, located about one hour north of Toronto, on the site of a development project, some bones were discovered. It turned out that the bones were part of a burial ground - an indigenous, and sacred, burial ground.

One article, appearing on the Aboriginal Peoples TV Network website, APTN on 09MAR began explaining what was starting to happen in this city. The article writes that: “ Rumours were beginning to spread of what happened there – mainly how the Ontario government extended its Toronto commuter GO Transit train line with a station and pedestrian underpass in 2012 through land where there was documented evidence of Indigenous burial grounds.

A whistleblower approached Archaeological Services Inc. (ASI) with their concerns. ASI soon began assessing the situation by examining previous archaeological reports done on the site known as the Allandale Station lands.

It didn’t take long for ASI to see the provincial regulations that were in place to protect archaeological sites, like this one, had failed over and over.”

Back in 2004, the Government of Ontario Transit, or GO Transit as it is known, was exploring expanding its network into the city of Barrie, because so many were starting to commute from this city to Toronto. They were looking at lands where a rail line was already in place. GO Transit hired an archaeological firm to do a preliminary assessment, or stage 1 assessment.

The article continues: “ The firm, and its owner Philip Woodley, felt the land had been so disturbed after years of operating as a major rail yard, it held no archaeological importance. Woodley never made mention of the burials or that Indigenous people had occupied that site for hundreds of years before settlers came in.

Woodley told GO it didn’t need to do any archaeological testing, essentially giving Ontario the green light to start construction. But this was a mistake.
And it would be the first of many. “

The City of Barrie’s own archaeological firm had told them not to dig there, but no one from the city told this to GO Transit. Apparently, there were people looking for the political coup of bringing a commuter rail network to the city.

The area where the city is located is also called Huronia, because it was the lands of the Huron-Wendat confederacy.

Philip Woodley’s 2004 report to GO Transit does not include any of this, nor does it include information from renowned historical and archaeologist Andrew Hunter who documented this in 1907. The article describes his reports as being a ‘bible’ of sorts of Simcoe County.

The report also does not note a newspaper article from the Barrie Examiner in 1926 quoting Major Joseph Rogers, the high constable for Simcoe County at the time. He was quoted as saying that: “ There are few people who stand on the station platform at Allandale and know they are standing right over one of the greatest Indian burial places known in Ontario.”

The article continues: “So, in 2007, when GO finally acquired a part of the Allandale Station lands from Barrie, and despite what officials within the MTCS knew about the site, a clearance letter was issued allowing GO Transit to move forward. The official announcement that GO was going to downtown Barrie was made in April 2009.”

The brewing scandal threatens to hit high up in both major political parties in the province of Ontario. The current leader of the Progressive Conservative Party, the opposition leader Patrick Brown, was a federal conservative MP in the government of Stephen Harper at the time, and the current premier of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne was the provincial transportation minister at the time.

In a second APTN article the following week, on the 16th, this article adds more information about the whistleblower who came forward, because he found out that the lands he was about to develop for condominiums was a burial ground. This article writes that: “ It was a proud moment between father and son that day back in May 2009 when Alan Furbacher stood next to his dad on a site in downtown Barrie, Ontario, where he was going to build the largest project their company had ever done. Infrastructure was supposed to begin on the site a few months after Furbacher signed a preliminary agreement with Barrie on May 12, 2009.

The city first sent Furbacher a purchase and sale contract July 28, 2009, a couple months after learning Furbacher’s bank needed an environmentally clean site.

The city put in the contract they wanted Furbacher to be on the hook for any archaeological and environmental issues that may come up.

Furbacher amended the agreement and sent it back to the city August 24, 2009 saying, among other things, the city would assume any risk of potential environmental and archaeological issues.

This is about the time his deal with the city began to unravel over a two year period.

Staff at the city knew things Furbacher didn’t.

Mainly, the land was likely contaminated from years of operating as a major rail yard from the 1850s to 1990s.

Barrie was also aware that a rare Huron-Wendat village had been found in 2001 on the same spot Furbacher was going to build.

More so, they knew documented burial pits, known as Huron-Wendat ossuaries, had been reported throughout the years on the land.

None of this was told to Furbacher went he put in a bid to build the project.

If Furbacher signed the agreement on the first draft he would have been on the hook for costs associated with potentially cleaning up the soil and checking for burials.

“I would have been signing my own death wish,” he said. “I would never want to build over an area where there are burials.”

He never would find out about the burials and soil contamination until he later sued the city after the deal fell apart near the end of 2011. The matter remains before the courts and has yet to go to trial.”

If you want an example of how politicians discover potential scandals, and then try to pawn the scandal off on others via corrupt and fraudulent commercial contracts, it does not get much more blatant and obvious than this.

There may be a connection however to the Grand River Mohawks and the issues that they are now addressing. A Wikipedia page on the Wyandot or Huron people writes the following: “They were located in the southern part of what is now the Canadian province of Ontario around Georgian Bay. Drastically reduced in number by epidemic diseases after 1634, they were dispersed by war in 1649 from the Iroquois (Haudenosaunee), then based in New York.

Today the Wyandot have a First Nations reserve in Quebec, Canada. They also have three major settlements in the United States, two of which have independently governed, federally recognized tribes.”

The remaining branches of this nation have chosen to surrender their rights and freedoms to both the Canadian and US governments as corporate entities. According to Jason Bowman, special assistant to the Mohawks in Brantford, the Huron may have been assimilated into the Iroquois Confederacy, of which the Grand River Mohawks are a part. This may allow the Mohawks to add these lands to claims being made against the governments of Ontario and Canada. The Grand River Mohawks already have claimed a further 3.6km2 in a nearby community.

Considering the destruction against indigenous cultures that has been waged not only on Turtle Island or North America, but also around the world, one has to wonder why a country like Israel, that only came into existence in 1947-48, gets to claim not only land from Palestine, but also military weapons, including nuclear weapons, as well as vast amounts of financial support from the US government, as well as the steadfast and very public political support of various western leaders. Why also does a country like Israel have the political clout to control foreign policy of countries like the US and perhaps arguably also Canada?

The fact is, there were people connected to a zionist agenda that lives and exists in ways that the indigenous nations do not follow. Although history has been painful for both Jews and the indigenous peoples, the zionist agenda is being exposed and isolated, while the indigenous Earth wisdom is beginning to make its way into human and planetary consciousness at this time.

As far as a specific update this concerning the Mohawk Initiative, the Canadian government and the Governor General, the Queen’s representative in Canada, continue to ignore the requests for dialogue on the issues. About ten days ago, an official letter from the office of Dr. Carolyn Bennett, the minister responsible for indigenous affairs at the federal level formally rejected any Ministerial meeting with the Mohawks. This was perhaps for the purpose of protecting themselves on public record. On the copy sent to the Mohawks however was an invitation by a staff member, Rick Theis who invited them to contact him to set up a meeting with he and his team. A meeting was set up for this past Monday, but Theis cancelled the meeting at the last moment (Sunday afternoon), claiming that more information was necessary before meeting. This, despite having been sent all the documents outlining the claims being made by the Mohawks (which are all also publicly available on the CVN show summary and on related websites).

I have been informed by Jason Bowman who has himself been informed by the Mohawk Workers through Bill Squire that, on the recommendation of Ohrereko:wa (oh-lay-lay-goh-a) , the Chief of the Mohawk Wolf Clan, in cooperation and with the support of the Turtle and Bear clans, that more pressure is to be exerted upon the Canadian government and also the Governor-General, the Queen’s representative in Canada.

CVN reported a few weeks back that a letter had been received from Queen Elizabeth, indicating that she would be directing her representative in Canada, David Johnston, to immediately begin addressing this issue.

As of today, 08APR, no formal contact has been initiated from his office towards the Grand River Mohawks. CVN points out to listeners the irony relating to David Johnston, because it just so happens that Canada’s current representative for the Queen may own property within the Haldimand lands that are now being claimed by the Grand River Mohawks.

It has been shared that, as of 08APR, a letter was sent to Randy Reid, a staff member within the office of the Minister responsible for indigenous issues in the Ontario government, acknowledging the very positive contact with him and his attention to the issues being brought forth. Rick Theis, the federal minister, Dr. Carolyn Bennett, the Ontario Minister, David Zimmer, the provincial representative for the Queen and the national representative for the Queen were copied in on this letter.

All parties have been given ample time to acknowledge and reach out in dialogue, and except for the letter from Randy Reid from the office of David Zimmer, all others are seemingly continuing to ignore the Mohawks.

Just as the City of Barrie knew about the issue involving the burial ground but chose to cover it up for political gain, it could be argued that something similar is taking place now, and thus the Chief of the Mohawk Wolf Clan has stated it is time to ‘up the ante’ and turn on some pressure.

Numerous calls were made on 08APR to Rideau Hall and the office of David Johston, the Governor General, and the switchboard continued to hang up each time a call was made.

With this now public, ‘name and shame’ letter, the Mohawks are now asking the provincial representative for the Queen to reach out to the Governor General on behalf of the Mohawks to initiate formal dialogue.

In the letter, among other things, the following is shared: “The lack of consideration on the part of the Federal government is sickening to me and I fail to apprehend Carolyn Bennett's rationale in refusing to meet with the Grand River Mohawks whilst parading around the World acting as if all is well with the Onkwehonwe people she continues to disrespect and ignore. It's sickening for us to watch.

You people who are supposed to act for Canadians need to understand that you can no longer solely deal with so-called 'corporate Indians' guised as the AFN and elected 'chiefs' and councilors. The traditional Mohawk people are represented by their Chief who MUST and SHALL be addressed - consulted, and accommodated. THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE. Canadian taxpayers have a very big problem developing, and the elected representatives are making it worse by the day - not better. Let's try to change this.”

In this week’s Mohawk Initiative update, just a little bit of information to share this week; Despite the positive actions demonstrated by Russia, some of which were mentioned a few minutes ago, and some which will be mentioned shortly, the recent increase in sanctions against Russia by Canada is presenting a challenge, but not necessarily a negative challenge, to the Mohawk attempts to forge allies moving forward.

After the careful consideration of the actions currently being undertaken by Russia geopolitically and geoeconomically, it was felt and decided by the Mohawks that they should reach out and engage a former and potential future ally.

What exactly do I mean by this? The Mohawks and Russia have an historic alliance that dates back centuries. In 1710, 5 Indigenous nation Chiefs travelled to Queen Anne’s Court in London to meet with the 13 royal families who essentially ruled much of the world at that time. One of the chiefs died during the voyage across the Atlantic, so it was only four that actually met.

A Wikipedia page explains this connection. It is written that: “ The Four Indian Kings or Four Kings of the New World were three Mohawk chiefs of the Iroquois Confederacy and a Mahican of the Algonquian peoples, whose portraits were painted in London to commemorate their travel from New York to meet the Queen of Great Britain in 1710.” I am not going to attempt to pronounce the indigenous names so where they are given, I will use the christian names by which they were also known.

The four chiefs were: Sa Ga Yeath Qua Pieth Tow of the Bear Clan, called King of Maguas, with the Christian name Peter Brant (grandfather of Mohawk leader Joseph Brant); Ho Nee Yeath Taw No Row of the Wolf Clan, called King of Canajoharie ("Great Boiling Pot"), or John of Canajoharie; Tee Yee Ho Ga Row, meaning "Double Life", of the Wolf Clan, also called Hendrick Tejonihokarawa or King Hendrick. Hendrick is the direct ancestor to Ohrereko:wa, (Oh-lay-lay-goh-a), the current Mohawk Wolf Clan Chief. The Mohican chief was Etow Oh Koam of the Turtle Clan, mistakenly identified in his portrait as Emperor of the Six Nations. The Algonquian-speaking Mohican people were not part of the Iroquois Confederacy. Five chiefs set out on the journey, but one died in mid-Atlantic.

It was regarded by some as the world’s first international peace conference on the law of the land of Great Turtle Island Initiated by the Mohawks. Wampum belts signifying the Two Row were presented to each family. It is said that Tsar Peter the Great of Russia accepted the wampum and the message of peace which were taken back to Russia. This wampum was apparently re-discovered recently in a museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. This would seem to validate therefore that, at least at one time, there was a recognition and acknowledgement between the two nations.

There appears therefore, to be a historical connection between the Mohawks and Russia. In indigenous Mohawk language, a wampum could be interpreted as a form of ‘diplomatic relations’ existing between the two nations. An attempt to reach out and connect with the Russian embassy in Ottawa came at the unfortunate time of Canada’s increase in sanctions against Russia. The Ambassador and embassy staff were understandably too busy to consider other business, and given the sensitivity of the diplomatic action taking by Canada, it is possible that the Ambassador did not want to create the perception that it was interfering in so-called ‘Canadian affairs’.

The distinction I point out to listeners however is that the Mohawks are not ‘Canadian’, at least not by the corporate definition imposed by the government. Everything happens for a reason, and as many are coming to learn - Diving Timing does not always align with the desires and wishes of humans. The actions of the Canadian government are complicating the timing of discussions with Russia, and although not necessarily connected, the Mohawks have observed how certain actions by the Canadian government seem to conveniently place roadblocks up for the Mohawks in their initiative to reclaim their stolen funds and their lands that were unlawfully taken.

The Grand River Mohawks, having long been aware of the existence of this wampum, or treaty gifted to Tzar Nicholas by their ancestors in 1710, would very much like to honour this wampum in the current day, in the hopes of collaborating in efforts that not only benefit each nation, but the planet collectively. The same can be said for other potential future allies that the Mohawks hope to exchange a wampum with.

To offer a bit of background on how indigenous diplomatic traditions operate, it is important to try to understand the context of what it means when a Chief takes a decision to engage in communication with another group or nation. In many indigenous traditions, and this includes the Mohawks of the Grand River, it is considered a grave insult to reject a meeting with the Chief, when the Chief has made a decision that a meeting would be beneficial for both nations. As I am coming to learn, the Chief of the Mohawks, and I suspect that this may be similar for the leaders of other indigenous nations, the Chief rarely engages in the everyday affairs of so many things. It leads to a ‘polluted’ mind where too many possibly unimportant factors may influence the outcome of the nation.

The Chief needs to be in a clear mind, to receive only information that has been seen, heard or has involved the direct participation of those who are seeking to advise the Chief. Second or third hand information is not what a Mohawk Chief considers valid information. Given the actions that Russia has been undertaking globally to help bring down the global cabal, and given the wampum that exists between Russia and the Mohawks, the Chief felt that it was appropriate to reach out to Russia, to engage in talks that could be mutually beneficial to both nations.

While the Canadian government has chosen to push Russia and Canada further apart, it remains the hope of the Grand River Mohawks to re-engage and honour a historical treaty to build their own bridge and open new doors to future communication. At this time, it can be shared that the Mohawks have set up several meetings in Ottawa for next week between Canadian officials and some foreign officials, and it is expected that some information will be forthcoming from those meetings for next week’s newscast.

It remains the hope of the Grand River Mohawks that Russia will choose to acknowledge the wampum treaty that exists, and seek to reach out in honourable and mutual dialogue for the Highest Good of all at this time.

In this week’s Mohawk Initiative update, it seems an interesting pattern is beginning to appear with regards to who is choosing to reply to the letters being sent out by the Grand River Mohawks and who is not choosing to reply.

This week, it can be reported that a very polite letter was received by the City of Hamilton, Ontario, located between Toronto and Brantford. Thus far, only the City of Hamilton has chosen to address the Chief representing the Bear, Turtle and Wolf Mohawk clans as ‘Honourable Chief’. The City has requested more information about the debts that the City of Hamilton is allegedly responsible for, and this information is being prepared for them. Also of interest are two responses from Britain, one from the Bank of England and the other from Queen Elizabeth.

The Bank of England, according to Mohawk worker assistant Jason Bowman, does not deny the debt, but they suggest in their letter that other entities in Canada already named in this action, are better able to address this issue.

The response from the Queen notes that she has forwarded her instructions to her representative in Canada, the Governor General David Johnston, to act on this issue.

Despite all the media hoopla about the Government of Canada addressing various issues relating to indigenous nations in Canada, what is perhaps notably surprising…or unsurprising…is that no one connected to the government of Canada have replied to their letters. Prime Minister Trudeau, Governor General Johnston, Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould and the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Carolyn Bennett, have all remained silent on the issue being brought up by the Mohawks.

It is surprising…given that the government has been claiming a lot of national media attention in allegedly addressing indigenous issues, but at the same time it is not surprising, given that the only issues the government has addressed are related to the corporate entities of indigenous nations and not the truly free nations that have not surrendered their lands, rights and freedoms.

An issue highlighting this fact has come up in this past week. The Brantford Expositor reported on 17MAR that: “ Six Nations politicians and community agencies have returned from a lobbying sojourn in Ottawa designed to introduce newly-elected MPs and senior government officials to the needs and desires of Canada's most populous First Nation.

“The people of Six Nations, at great sacrifices, have long fulfilled their commitments to helping make Canada a proud and prosperous country. Our elected council had an invaluable opportunity to...raise awareness and discuss how Canada can begin fulfilling its commitments to Six Nations,” was how elected Chief Ava Hill put a two-day whirlwind series of meetings with about 30 officials around Parliament last week.

They met with Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, and in an evening reception with Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.

“There is an urgent need for a new process in this promised era of nation-to-nation building and reconciliation,” said Hill.

The centre piece of the lobbying effort was an attempt to get negotiations going again on land claim rights.”

It is stories like these within the community of Brantford that confuse the locals with the true understanding of what is taking place, not only within the Grand River Mohawks and Six Nations, but on most, and arguably even all the other indigenous nations across Canada whether or not they are a corporate entity or truly free nation.

What this highlights is that Minister Bennett and Attorney General Wilson-Raybould were willing to meet the elected corporate entity of Six Nations, which reprints roughly 5% of the indigenous population in the region, according to Bowman. Yet, the truly free and legitimate claim holders are being neglected in their attempts to engage the Canadian government.

Earlier this month, the CBC had reported that Trudeau was under fire for excluding certain indigenous groups in a meeting that he held with aboriginal leaders to discuss a role for First Nations in the fight against climate change. One of the groups Trudeau apparently neglected was the Native Women’s Association, an irony, considering that Trudeau was being recognized this past week for his role in promoting gender equality and considering that many indigenous cultures are more matriarchal in structure meaning that the women carry at least a significant role, if not a full leadership role, within an indigenous nation.

I remind listeners that ‘First Nations’ is the corporate entity term and I also invite listeners to consider the possibility that the issue of ‘climate change’ relates more to the man-made weather modifications to the global climate, instead of the natural evolution of this planet to a more temperate climate.

What is also seemingly odd about all this is that last year, in an article on the Two Row Times website in May reported that the Government of Canada - and recall that this was the former government of Stephen Harper, offered a settlement to another group of Mohawks regarding a land claim of about 20,000 acres or 81square kms near Cornwall Ontario on the south side of the St. Lawrence River.

According to this article: “ The Government of Canada has presented the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA) with a $239,808436.00 “full and final settlement” offer for the Tsikaristisere/Dundee Specific Land Claim submission.

This group is not connected to the Grand River Mohawks as this group has chosen to be a corporate entity, and thus this is likely why they were given the settlement. What remains to be seen is where those funds will be directed and how much of it will be put into honourable projects that will benefit everyone in that particular group.

The French Mohawks are making their voice heard in the province of Quebec meanwhile. An article on the Montreal Gazette website on 14MAR has reported that: “ The Mohawk nation is threatening to do everything legally in its power to block the Energy East pipeline project, calling it a threat to their way of life. “

The article continues, adding that: “Despite perceptions that opposition to the project is coming mainly from mayors in Quebec, a Mohawk-driven Canadian First Nations movement against the project is picking up steam in other parts of the country.”

This movement is also coming from the corporate entity Mohawk groups and is not officially connected to the Grand River Mohawks.

The issue of indigenous land protection is becoming an increasingly important issue, as more and more begin to realize that the ultimate survival of humans on our planet is dependent upon how humans treat our planet.

Recently in Australia, a festival entitled ‘All About Women’ was held at the Sydney Opera House. ABC News in Australia interviewed two women, “Amelia Telford, the National Director of the Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network in Australia, and Crystal Lameman, the Treaty Coordinator and Communications Manager for the Intergovernmental Affairs, and Industry Relations Department for the Beaver Lake Cree Nation in Canada as they discuss the role of Indigenous people, particularly women, in the protection of their lands:

Although it is confusing to discern between the corporate entity indigenous nations and the non-corporate entities, and even though some make land claim settlements which are really a surrender of the groups natural wisdom and rights, the Mohawk Initiative seeks to eventually find a way to unite all, as peacefully and as lawfully as possible, so that the interests of all humans are honoured, but more importantly the interests of our planet are protected under the Great Tree of Peace.

In this week’s Mohawk Initiative update, the latest information from the Grand River Mohawks, approved by Mohawk Worker’s spokesperson Bill Squire and his assistant Jason Bowman is that the City of Montreal has now responded to the Mohawks regarding their debt, resulting from funds that were used from the Six Nations/Mohawk Trust Fund that was established before Canada became a country. In 1854, funds were removed from this account, as has been reported previously, and the City of Montreal’s Montreal Turnpike Company received a large payment of approximately 28,000 Pounds, in UK funds in 1854. These funds were used in the upkeep of what was known as the Montreal Turnpike, a series of 7 toll roads for transportation.”

According to Squire and Bowman, the letter was polite, and indicated that the mayor of the city had informed the legal department to reply to the letter and act in a prompt manner to address the issue. The tone seems to suggest that the city is interested and willing to enter into discussions leading to a mutually beneficial reconciliation of the outstanding issue and debt.

CVN has been informed also of another very positive development for the Grand River Mohawks, this time on an issue that is more important to them on a spiritual level.

CVN has touched upon the issue of the land claim in the city of Brantford where land either has been acquired, or is in the process of being acquired by Walton International, the conglomerate behind the Walton family and the Wal-Mart chain of stores.

CVN reported in recent weeks how a particular plot of land, known as Tutelo Heights was being targeted for acquisition.

Although Walton hired surveyor’s to determine whether there were any issues relating to the historical significance of the lands being claimed, Walton International was claiming that there was no significance to the lands.

In an article appearing on the Two Row Times, a local publication, reporter Jim Windle uncovered information that begins to firmly and directly reveal the historical significance of these lands, and thus brings greater credibility to the claim by the Mohawks that their lands are their own, and that they have not been surrendered to anyone else or any corporate entity.

Windle reports on one individual, Arthur Stanford who is a direct descendant of one Ignatius Cockshutt, whose former estate now serves Brantford’s arts community.

The story goes that Cockshutt claimed that he had been the first resident resident of Brantford to speak over the telephone, from the house of his neighbour, Alexander Graham Bell, on Tutela Heights. Many will recognize Bell as the name credited to the invention of the telephone. He was from Brantford, and he lived on the Mohawk lands now in question.

Windle writes that: “ Last week, Standford told Two Row Times of an old family tale of a massacre of Tutelos right in his back yard, killing the men and tossing women and children off the bluffs. A few escaped down river and joined the Cayuga Village at Cainsville. One story is that it was a lynch mob of whites, but another story says it was Mohawks.

There is no written record anywhere of this massacre, but Arthur believes that the story is true. He tells of a story his mother was told by her mother when she was very old. A story of bags of human bones being collected from the fields behind the homestead.”

It was reported that farmers looking after the land had turned up bones, as the soil was being tilled for agriculture. The article reports that: “ In 1974, archaeologist Virginia Hill was brought in by the family. During a dig she found the remains of the Tutelo Longhouse and other relics. The site was covered over again and never excavated since, according to Stanford who knows exactly where the longhouse is.”

In the article, Stanford claims that what they, meaning Walton International, the City of Brantford, and Brant County in particular, and the elites in general, are trying to do is destroy the history of that place so they can write a new one.”

This has traditionally been the practice with indigenous nations around the world. In particular however, the historical mistreatment by corporate governing entities in Canada is only now starting to come into the Light.

In March of 2013, the CBC reported the following: “ Aboriginal people are so vastly over-represented in Canada's federal prison system that current policies are clearly failing them, according to a new report by the Office of the Correctional Investigator.

The report found "no new significant investments at the community level for federal aboriginal initiatives. No deputy commissioner dedicated solely to and responsible for aboriginal programs, planning, implementation and results. And worst of all, no progress in closing the large gaps in correctional outcomes between aboriginal and non-aboriginal inmates," Howard Sapers, the correctional investigator for Canada, said during a news conference in Ottawa. This was again, in 2013.

Keep in mind that this was during the leadership of Stephen Harper, a leader whom many people considered to be almost dictator-like.

The article continues: “ The report was tabled in the House of Commons Thursday morning — only the second special report ever written by the investigator since the office's creation 40 years ago.

The trail of many social policies which have marginalized one group of our population "defines systemic discrimination," Sapers said.”

Most alarming is the following: “"There are just over 3,400 aboriginal men and women making up 23 per cent of the country's federal prison inmate population," Sapers said.

"In other words, while aboriginal people in Canada comprise just four per cent of the population, in federal prisons nearly one in four is Métis, Inuit, or First Nations.”

What this essentially proved was that Canada was in fact as much guilty of its own human rights violations, as those the government was claiming in other countries, including China.

The CBC followed up on its own story fro 2013 with another story last January. In this article, the CBC writes that: “

"The most current figure we have is quite shocking," said Correctional Investigator of Canada Howard Sapers, the country's prison ombudsman.

"In federal corrections, 25.4 per cent of the incarcerated population are now of aboriginal ancestry."

Of 14,624 inmates across the country, 3,723 are aboriginal people. In the Prairie provinces, 48 per cent of federal inmates are aboriginal people.

For aboriginal women, the numbers are even higher. According to the most recent statistics, more than 36 per cent of women in prison are of aboriginal descent.

Sapers said that three decades ago, 10 per cent of federal inmates were aboriginal people, but the number continues to grow each year.

"It's actually quite a dramatic increase," Sapers said. "It was identified year after year after year as a major concern, as a human rights concern.”

During the leadership of Stephen Harper, nothing was accomplished, and in fact the problem only got worse.

Whether or not the leadership of Justin Trudeau will change any of this, remains to be seen, because so far his government has only acknowledged the corporate entity of indigenous nations, known as the Assembly of First Nations, which does not speak for, nor do they represent, the few truly free and natural indigenous nations, such as the Grand River Mohawks who have not surrendered their rights or freedoms.

Canada has been facing an epidemic of murders, suspicious deaths and suicides among indigenous nations. An article on the 04MAR reported the following: “ Canada is home to some of the most unique and diverse Indigenous populations in the world. They are comprised of distinct ethnic cultures called the First Nations, Inuit and Metis. They live in different settings from remote locations in the north to isolated land reserves, on the coasts and also in urban centres across the country. Indigenous peoples comprise approximately 4.3% of Canada's total population and include also 600 First Nations Bands who demonstrate distinct languages, cultures, art and music.

Physical, mental and sexual abuses have affected the populations to such a degree that trauma is entrenched in many lives of the Indigenous and their children resulting in social disorder, mental illnesses and addictions issues. Survivors of residential schools and their descendents alike report difficulty forming trusting relationships with their partners and family members. Children growing up without such trusting relationships often develop an inability to respond to stress and therefore resort to coping with external stimuli such as addictions.”

More recently, CTV News and other media have now reported that one indigenous nation in the province of Manitoba has declared a state of emergency, as a result of a rash of suicides in this nation. According to the report: “ A remote Manitoba First Nation declared a state of emergency Wednesday after six suicides in the last two months and 140 attempts in the last two weeks alone.

Officials from the Pimicikamak Cree Nation, known as Cross Lake, say health workers on the northern reserve can no longer cope. Band councillor Donnie McKay said the nursing station is only staffed by two nurses overnight.”
The nurses have slept so little, working 24 and they are ready to drop.

Corporate entities have a way of installing more dangerous projects such as hydro transmission lines and hydroelectric dams closer to indigenous nations where their lives and way of living are impacted the greatest.
The article notes that: “Premier Greg Selinger personally apologized a year ago for the damage caused by the hydro development to Cross Lake's traditional land, way of life and cultural identity.” In reality, although there was hope initially…that hope quickly faded to nothing.

A LOT of work is required, and thus this is yet another reason why it will be so important for indigenous nations to reclaim their lands, and restore as much of their natural Earth-wisdom to communities as possible and this includes also the non-indigenous people for those who choose to live under the Great Tree of Peace and in ways that honour Earth and humanity. This is another reason why the Mohawk Initiative is becoming so increasingly important, not only in Canada but also worldwide.

In this week’s Mohawk Initiative update, CVN has received word that the office of the Premier of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne has responded to the letter that was sent as part of the initial group of letters sent to individuals and entities addressing the outstanding debts and land claim issues being undertaken by the Grand River Mohawks. As well, a letter has been received from the Province of Quebec, and the province has instructed the relevant minister to engage with the Mohawks directly, just as the Province of Ontario has done.

According to the Mohawk Workers spokesman Bill Squire and assistant Jason Bowman, the letter appeared to have a language that suggested a sincere desire to address the issue as soon as possible. The letter stated that Premier Wynne would have her Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, David Zimmer, or someone from his office contact the Mohawks directly for consultation.

This follows on the news from last week that at least one entity, the Trillium Railway Company has responded to the letter, stating that they are not aware of their alleged debt to the Mohawks.

The Mohawks have indicated that they will enter into discussions with the company to ensure the facts and information are presented and understood from both parties, before moving forward.

The Mohawks, generally, would prefer not to have to resort to legal actions against anyone, and instead would rather negotiate a settlement that reflects more the indigenous practice of justice that is truth and reconciliation.

Those debtors choosing to ignore the letters or to address their debts are expected to be dealt with in terms of further legal actions.

The land claim issue is heating up in the city of Brantford meanwhile.

An article appearing on the Brantford Expositor by Michael-Allan Marion on 01MAR has reported that: “A delegation comprising Brantford Mayor Chris Friel, Brantford Coun. David Neumann, city staff, Brant Mayor Ron Eddy and county CAO Paul Emerson appeared this week before Six Nations elected council's committee of the whole.

Their purpose was to explain in detail the city-county agreement to transfer into Brantford in stages 2,585 hectares of mainly Brant farmland in return for compensation according to an agreed-upon formula. They also highlighted the possible benefits in Brantford, Brant and Six Nations operating as partners.”

While Mr. Marion may believe he is on the right side of the story, what Marion is either unaware of, or is intentionally ignoring, is the fact that the Six Nations elected Band Council, is a corporate entity connected to the corporate entity known as the Assembly of First Nations, which is guided by the commercial legislation known as The Indian Act. The Six Nations Band Council is not the entity to whom the Haldimand lands were ceded to, nor is this Band Council the lawful body having the authority to speak for the lands that are in question. Although I would like to believe that Mr. Marion reported his story in error, it would appear that Mr. Marion is being guided by other interests seeking to keep the lawful and true guardians of the Haldimand lands, the Grand River Mohawks away from having any say in how the land issue moves forward.

With this story…as with any story of this nature really, it is vital to understand who represents corporate entities and commercial legislation, and who represents the truly free and natural people who have not surrendered their rights and freedoms to those corporate interests or commercial legislation.

One particular piece of land, known as Tutela Heights. The Tutelo Village is a significant historical site located on these lands.

Jim Windle, in an article for the Two Row Times on 02MAR reports on the events surrounding this land.

Windle writes that: “At recent community meetings in Brantford, Brant and Six Nations regarding the large housing development targeted by land bankers, Walton International, there has been concern spoken over the desecration of the former Tutelo Village, a significant historical site.

Archaeological Services Inc., has been hired by Walton to perform the necessary archaeological surveying of the area, and have stated that have not found any sign of burial ground or the central Longhouse of the Tutelos.”

In order for a contract to be truly recognized and honoured in a commercial court of law, the commercial agreement must be signed between consenting commercial entities. Hence, Walton International has negotiated with the corporate entity of the Six Nations Band Council, without any consultation involving the Grand River Mohawks. It was for this very reason, that the Cease and Desist letter was sent to various governing entities - so that the Mohawks would no longer be intentionally excluded from discussions involving their lands, their assets, their rights and their freedoms.

Although Walton claims that its surveyors found nothing of significance on the lands, Windle reports that longtime residents can very clearly identify the historical sites, and it puzzles people as to how they could have missed them.

It is not hard to understand why, when corporate interests see no value in things of historical interest.

Windle added that: “Six Nations Elected Council has entered into agreements with Walton in exchange for some form of compensation. However, others, including the men’s fire, the traditional Confederacy Council as well as the Mohawk Workers continue to oppose the project.”

The Mohawk Workers is the group representing the Grand River Mohawks.

In a separate article, Windle goes into some of the history of the land in question. He describes the lands overlooking Brantford that are known as Tutela Heights, but these lands were annexed into the City of Brantford. Windle writes that: “They were not part of the original Town Plot of Brantford, one might wonder how a large part of the former Mohawk Village and hunting lands along the Haldimand Proclamation lands got into the hands of settlers in the first place.

When posing that question the first thing to consider is the political and social climate of the turn of the 1800s. The second is to seek an order in council from the Six Nations Chiefs or minutes of Confederacy meetings that would show they allowed the full and unrestricted transfer of Haldimand Deed lands, and for what compensation.”

It is this that is forming the foundation for what CVN has been calling the ‘Mohawk Initiative’.

Windle writes his articles primarily for the understanding of the locals. However, those listening to CVN who are interested some of the history as it relates to these lands and to the land claims issues will find links to Windle’s articles in the show summary.

Windle notes that: “By the mid 1830s, the Six Nations reserve system had been introduced as a means to help the government enforce removal of all non-Natives without a Brant Lease or bill of sale from the Haldimand Tract and to protect Six Nations from land thieves and squatters. But as history proves, the acceptance of that plan was akin to leaving the fox to guard the henhouse.

Among the tsunami of white settlers that came to the region were carpetbaggers and thieves, unfortunately many of which were also lawyers and government officials using their office to cheat Six Nations out of large portions of the Tract for personal gain.”

As a result, many towns and cities appeared, and more and more lands were taken away from the Mohawks.

Where corporate entities are given preference over the rights and freedoms of natural people, without the informed and lawful consent of those involved is a truly criminal act, for it causes harm to entities.

This is an example of how the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreements have been negotiated.

It represents the commercialization and quantification of everything, while subjecting those commercial entities to rules created by wealthy people having the power to influence, blackmail or bribe politicians into creating rules that have not received the informed democratic consent of those who elected the politicians.

It is this, among many other things, that the Mohawk Initiative seeks to bring an end to, once and for all.

In this week’s update to the Mohawk Initiative that CVN has been reporting on since its launch a few weeks back, there is still a bit of time left for a few of the entities who received letters from the Office of Ohrerehow:a, the Chief of the Mohawk Wolf Clan.

With the consent and participation of the Mohawk Bear and Turtle clans, along with the women elders, the letters sent out to ask the entities to verify and acknowledge alleged debts by each entity to the Mohawks.

These debts are based on information taking from historical records showing that funds from a Six Nations Trust Fund had been re-directed to various entities, without the express, written consent of the Mohawks.

The federal government also received an additional ‘cease and desist’ letter, advising them to stop excluding the Mohawks from all discussions involving indigenous nations because the Mohawks are not a part of the corporate entity known as the Assembly of First Nations, nor have the Mohawks surrendered their rights and freedoms to the corporate legislation known as the Indian Act.

According to Jason Bowman, who is assisting the Mohawks, the entities could reply in one of three ways. The first is to acknowledge the debt and enter into discussions with the Mohawks to find a workable solution. It is highly unlikely that any entity will choose this option, but it is possible. Another possibility is that an entity will not acknowledge the debt, in which case, the next step in legal action will become necessary. The third possibility is that an entity may reply indicating they have no knowledge about the debt. In this case, the entity will enter into discussions to reach a suitable next course of action.

CVN can tell listeners that as of 6 pm EST tonight, the Grand River Mohawks have already established communications with the LSUC and one of the Railways.

The update is therefore as follows: A few notices have still not been served, as they have either been lost in transit, or possibly, the letter was intercepted before its intended delivery. At this time, it can be reported that a few replies have been received, but additional details are not yet ready to be made public. Each reply, once received, is being addressed according to any details that were made available in the reply, and a reply will be returned to that entity.

Those who chose not to reply to the first letter, which was a ‘notice’ to outline the alleged debts, will shortly begin receiving letters of demand for a notarized certificate of assets sufficient to satisfy the minimum claim amount specified in the letter.

This is expected to permit the heirs to the trust monies to score each debtor party based upon its ability to actually pay its respective dues. Any party with the means to pay, can be rated at par or face value. Parties reluctant, unable, or unwilling to disclose appropriate assets, however, inevitably become rated below par. Aged, historic, delinquent, and derelict debts - even ones owed wealthy debtors with the means to pay, also weigh ratings further down below par value. I have been assured by sources from the Grand River territory with knowledge of this file, that as the Mohawks continue to clarify more than a centaury of murky crown accounts and records - and reveal particulars with respect to individual criminal transactions, CVN will continue to disclose these transactions publicly for the listeners to share

Two online articles have surfaced to bring greater validity to the Mohawk Initiative over the past week. The first article by Emily Saul, was dated back on November 29 of 2014 on the website. McGill is one of Canada’s more prestigious universities, located in Montreal in the province of Quebec. McGill was one of the beneficiaries of monies from the trust fund.

According to this article: “ During a panel discussion titled “Indigenous students at McGill: before and beyond graduation” that was held as part of the Indigenous Awareness Week, McGill graduate and Columbia University anthropology professor Audra Simpson spoke about a little-known aspect of McGill’s legacy: its link to a federal debt owed to the Six Nations of the Grand River Indigenous community.

Simpson noted how McGill history proudly claims its existence and heritage due to an endowment in 1811 from Scottish merchant James McGill. However what is conveniently left out of the history is that it was a crucial transfer of funds from the Six Nations of the Grand River in the 1850’s that prevented the bankruptcy of the institution, and allowed it to stay open.

The article continues: “In the mid-1800s, amidst a financial crisis, the pre-Confederation government of the Province of Canada loaned money to McGill. The government funded the loan with money taken from the Six Nations’ Trust Funds, of which the government was the fiduciary trustee. The transfer of money was made without the permission of the communities of the Six Nations.”

The first crime was the illegal transfer of funds without the consent of the Mohawks. The article continues, outlining the second crime: “While McGill paid back this loan and a subsequent loan by 1881 to the federal government, the government never reimbursed the Six Nations’ Trust Funds. This was discovered by Philip Monture, previously the director of the Land Claims Research Office at the Six Nations of the Grand River.”
In this article, Monture has estimated that this one claim alone is roughly in the area of about 1.7Billion Canadian dollars.

It should be noted, however, that the corporate entity known as “Six Nations Elected Band Council” has yet to – and the Grand River Mohawks suggest – could never, rightfully secure the return of much of anything to the Grand River Mohawks – to the people who are behind this Mohawk initiative.

This is because both the Six Nations Elected Band Council and the Federal government of Canada are two arms or branches of the same Crown. The elected system players are full-time employees of the Federal Government who operate under Indian Act and corporate laws.

A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation CBC radio program, entitled ‘Unreserved’ with Rosanna Deerchild, in an undated article from their website, reported on a journey to the Grand River Territory [Six Nations] by the radio host.

Deerchild revealed six things that she learned about the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, and the most important one was this. She describes an experience of seeing history in real life, writing that: “You may remember from grade 10 history class how the Iroquois Confederacy, led by Joseph Brant, allied with the British during the American Revolution.

For their loyalty, they were granted a tract of land along the Grand River under the 1784 Haldimand Treaty. Iroquois is a French term — they call themselves the Haudenosaunee, or People of the Longhouse. Their clan system follows a matrilineal line; in other words the women are in charge. Deerchild also learned that the Six Nations included the Mohawks, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Tuscarora and the Seneca indigenous nations.

It was this alliance with the British during the American Revolution that led to the Mohawks and Six Nations being given this tract of land which was the original beaver hunting grounds. This land has been systemically taken from the Mohawks since Canada emerged as a country in 1867. Currently, there exist cities and towns on this property that was never surrendered to the corporate government of Canada.

This is why the Mohawk Initiative is now underway. To reclaim what is rightfully theirs to share with others, and to seek fair compensation for crimes against them, while creating a new way of living that honours the Earth and follows the Great Tree of Peace, and that benefits not only indigenous nations across Canada, but also around the world, as well as humanity in general.  - 29SEP2014 Emily Saul, : Century-old federal debt not yet repaid to Indigenous community.  - Undated, Rosanna Deerchild, : 6 things I learned about Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.






Listeners may be wondering if there are any updates to the story of the Mohawk Initiative this week. I have been informed that there were meetings scheduled all day, Friday 19FEB. As of airtime, I have not been contacted with any updates, so I can only assume that the meetings are ongoing.

What we know so far is this: the legal letters have been sent out to the various government and corporate entities regarding the land claim by the Grand River Mohawks, and also letters of the historical and current debts owed by the British monarchy, the Canadian government, and numerous commercial entities that benefitted from a Six Nations Trust Fund, without the informed consent of the Mohawks and the groups within the Six Nations.

Those who have listened to the last two or three newscasts, will have an idea of how potentially significant the Mohawk Initiative will be, not only in Canada, but also for indigenous groups worldwide and humanity in general.

Those entities that received their letters should have submitted by today, 19FEB, their intention to cooperate with the Grand River Mohawks in resolving their debts, or be faced with possible further legal actions. Several letters were delivered a few days later, so it will be sometime next week before we will hear if the Canadian government plans to finally acknowledge the Grand River Mohawks, and especially address their accumulated debts as well.

CVN expects to have more information on this major, developing story, as the Grand River Mohawks continue their initiative to not only expose the global cabal, but reclaim lands that were never surrendered, while empowering groups around the world to use their lands in honourable service to the planet, by concerned humans seeking to live under the great Tree of Peace.

More news is expected next week.







As has been reported over the last two weeks in particular, the Mohawk Initiative has now been launched, and letters have been delivered via registered mail to most of the people and entities that were named on this broadcast over the last few weeks.

As was mentioned last week, we will begin to get an idea of who among these people and entities will choose to engage the Mohawks and begin to cooperate with them, and which entities will not. At that time, after the 14 day grace period has passed from the day in which the person or entity received the letter, a decision will be taken as to who will be included in possible future legal actions to secure stolen lands and stolen monies from the Mohawk Trust Fund since before the corporation of Canada came into existence.

There is still some indigenous news to share from around the world this week, and there is also some news from Canada, but first, we start in New Zealand.

In the follow-up to the ratification of the TPP agreement in New Zealand, it was reported on the Tap News Wire on 04FEB that: “ Kingi Taurua, a prominent Nga Puhi elder at Waitangi’s Te Tii Marae, has sent a formal notice of veto of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement to the embassies and trade departments of its proposed partner countries, and has requested that the Queen intervene on the issue.”

There is both good news and not-so-good news this announcement. Although it is good news in the sense that at least one of the indigenous nations of New Zealand are standing up and speaking out, the problem is that they have asked the Queen to intervene on the matter.

From what I have been able to establish so far, it appears that term Maori seems to apply to all indigenous peoples in New Zealand, so please accept my apologies if this is incorrect. According to Wikipedia, the Maori “are the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand. The Māori originated with settlers from eastern Polynesia, who arrived in New Zealand in several waves of canoe voyages at some time between 1250 and 1300 CE.[7][8] Over several centuries in isolation, the Polynesian settlers developed a unique culture that became known as the "Māori", with their own language, a rich mythology, distinctive crafts and performing arts. “

The arrival of the Europeans starting around the 17th century led to a decline in the Maroi culture. Although relations were initially good, they deteriorated. By the 20th century, there was a re-emergence of the culture, and a protest movement emerged in the 1960’s advocating Maori issues.

The Maori elders are not seemingly aware that the British monarchy is as much a part of the problem as the government itself it. Asking the Queen to intervene is like asking the fox to investigate itself for alleged crimes in stealing chickens from the henhouse.

For those truly seeking to live as natural humans with their rights and freedoms intact, it makes no sense in asking the very entity that is responsible for the enslavement and the removal of those rights and freedoms to investigate itself for crimes alleged against the entity.

The article continues: “ The document, referring to the one submitted by the Waitangi, cites the Treaty of Waitangi and the 1835 Declaration of Independence of New Zealand, and states that the New Zealand government does not have “due authority” to sign the TPPA without the agreement of Maori elders, “which [agreement] has not been given”.

An article on the website on 03FEB has reported that Prime Minister John Keys has decided to not to attend the Waitangi Day celebrationson 06FEB. Waitangi Day is a national holiday that celebrates the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand's founding document, on that date in 1840.

The TVNZ website reports that Keys stated no intention of being present at the celebrations involving indigenous nations, because of alleged safety concerns and the Keys’ statement that the indigenous elders are attempting to put a gag order on him, and not allow him to share the governments position on the TPP agreement.

No doubt a few of you probably caught the irony in that statement, as the government went ahead without the input of the indigenous nations to sign an agreement and then claims to say that the indigenous will not allow him to express the government position, when it was clearly expressed in an act of not involving the indigenous in the first place.

It is unclear at this time whether violence was truly advocated by the Maori indigenous elders.

The Tap News Wire article adds the following: “Last year the Waitangi Tribunal found that Maori did not cede sovereignty when they signed the Treaty of Waitangi, and it is apparently this sovereignty by descent – or tino rangatiratanga – that Mr Taurua is claiming he is able to use to formally veto the trade agreement.

The document closes by stating that Mr Taurua “does not give [his] permission to the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement being signed in Auckland” by the visiting officials from overseas “which position I take to the full extent of my right to regulate trade in that district.”

The Declaration of Independence, which was approved by the Queen’s predecessor King William IV and ratified by the British government, states that Maori elders would gather at Waitangi each autumn in order to regulate trade.”

It seems unlikely that the Maori would engage in intentional physical confrontation without provocation.

The Maori elders chose Barry Brailsford, an historian and archaeologist to tell their story. On the webpage of the publisher for Brailsford’s book, Brailsford writes the following: “When the Maori Elders placed in my basket the hidden knowledge of the Waitaha Nation, I was carried into the ancient Polynesian seaways and the lore of the navigation stars, propelled along the mountain trails of the sacred stone, sent into the remarkable gardens in the ocean and the shore, wrapped in the cloak of the secret histories and given access to the highest Houses of Learning.”

A visit to the Waitaha website reveals that this is a nation of peace.
On their website it is written that: “ Traditionally the Waitaha Nation are a Matriarchal people who followed the philosophies of Peace known as Rongomaraeroa, the entity of Peace. Incidentally there have been no weapons of war found in the oldest archeological sites in our land of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

The Teachings from the Wananga Schools, placed high value on genetic memory, patterns of memory and passing on the traditions of their ancestors by teaching the grandchildren the way of living in a reverent way with all things and all people. Humility, deep respect and self discipline were the concepts and values interwoven in this way of life.”

The Waitaha have also stated on their website that they have had to keep hidden their origins and their history until now. The website states the following: “ Until now we have hidden our beginnings, and all that followed, in the shadows. In this way we protected our knowledge in the silence of the Whare Wananga, the School of Learning of Waitaha. Now is the time for our treasures to be brought into the light. We do this for the children, and their children, and all who call this land home. We are of Tane Matua, and we follow Rongo Marae Roa, the Female Entity of Peace.

An article on the website by Kimberly Paterson adds a bit more about Brailsford and the Maori story. She writes: “
The Waitaha were the first people of Aotearoa, a peaceful, loving people. For hundreds of years, since the decimation of their nation, the story of their very existence has been hidden. It is an amazing story – that anywhere on this planet a gathering of over 200 iwi or tribes managed to live in peace without weapons for over a thousand years. It is a story of healing, because the Waitaha were gardeners who believed that everyone of us had to be tended and nurtured and brought into fullness.

When the Waitaha nation was broken by warriors who came from the Pacific, the elders decided to protect their ancestors from the violence and warfare. They did that the only way they knew how. Whole generations of their genealogy were erased so that no one might link directly back into their lineage.”

Brailsford was quoted as saying that: “Everything came together here with such elegance initially,” says Barry. “Even some 400 years ago, when the nation was being broken, the elders spoke that the time would come when the stars would form a very special pattern in the sky and the sacred knowledge would be shared with all. The people of peace, gentle and caring, giving and nurturing, would stand and walk tall again. The stars came into that particular conjunction in 1990. The elders saw it coming in 1988 and the words given to me then were 'We have taken the taonga from the past, the greatest inspiration we have left to give to our young people that they might find the courage and the understanding and the wairua to step forward into the future’. This is Song of Waitaha.”

The story goes into a visit by Wallace Black Elk of the Lakota Sioux nation who visited the Waitaha unannounced, and this opened up a dialogue between the Maori of New Zealand and the Lakota Sioux of Turtle Island North America.

The Maori, like many indigenous nations, have been neglected and overlooked in many cases when it comes to how people should live, especially on lands that were never formally surrendered to corporate entities such as the British monarchy and national governments.

A separate article on the 04FEB quoted Kingi Taurua, the Maori elder mentioned earlier as saying that the government treated us like children.

There comes a time when action must be taken, especially if the corporate entities are unwilling to acknowledge the voices of the people who elected them.

Shifting now to Sweden and a similar story is unfolding there.

The London Guardian and The Barents Observer are among two media reporting on land claim issues in Sweden.

The Guardian article by David Crouch reported on 03FEB that: “ Sweden’s nomadic reindeer herders have won a 30-year battle for land rights in a court case that has seen the state accused of racism towards the country’s only indigenous people.

A decision in Gällivare district court on Wednesday granted the tiny Sami village of Girjas, inside the Arctic Circle, exclusive rights to control hunting and fishing in the area, restoring powers stripped from the Sami people, or Laplanders, by Sweden’s parliament in 1993.

“It is a symbolic step towards getting Sami rights acknowledged, and we hope that this verdict can shape policies towards Sami issues in Sweden, that was the main goal,” said Åsa Larsson Blind, vice-president of the Sami Council, which represents Sami people in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russia.”

The Barents Observer article by Trude Petersen added the following, and this information is very important: “ The court in its decision emphasized that the Sami population had used the land much longer than the Swedish state. “The main reason for our decision is that the Sami have been using this area since 500 A.D.” judge Niklas Lind said to SVT, adding that the Swedish state only became owners of the land in 1887 in connection with the first law on reindeer husbandry.

Even if the court decision only concerns a small area of land, she believes it can be of big importance for the whole of Sapmi, the cultural region traditionally inhabited by the Sami people. “Girjas has paved the way for other Sami villages in Sweden, and I believe we will see more such court cases. Sami all over the north can now see that it is possible to win”.

This action taken by the Sami people, and the ruling they have now received, has a similar structure for the Mohawk Initiative. Although the land claim by the Mohawks is currently small, the actions have the potential to help many other indigenous groups and humanity in general.

In Canada, there may be a few unusual things happening within the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

It was reported by on 05FEB that Trudeau held a meeting with all the mayors of the major cities in Canada. Although it may be seen as a good thing, it is unusual because it is not a meeting that happens very often, and it never happened under the leadership of former PM Harper.

Five days after this, on the 10th, a statement appearing on the prime minister’s webpage states the following: “ The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced that he and the Premiers will meet with First Nations, Inuit, and Metis leaders on March 2, 2016. The Prime Minister will then host a First Ministers’ Meeting (FMM) with Premiers on March 3, 2016. Both meetings will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia.”

Climate change is the publicly-stated reason for the meeting and is being promoted as “an opportunity for Canada to become a leader in the global clean growth economy, and to responsibly deliver on our climate commitments while delivering real benefits for Canadians.”

Referring to Canada’s indigenous peoples, Trudeau was quoted as saying that: “ Canada’s Indigenous peoples have a sacred relationship with the Earth. Their unique perspective will help guide us in developing policies that ensure our land, air and water are protected for future generations.”

As has been mentioned previously however, the Trudeau government has not invited the indigenous nations that have retained their natural rights and freedoms. The Mohawks have not been invited, nor to my knowledge, the indigenous nations of the west coast of Canada that are still naturally free.

So there is some suspicion regarding the actions of the Canadian government, and within the next two weeks, CVN will be able to report on how the Canadian government plans to respond or not respond to the letter submitted through the Mohawk Initiative.

The Mohawks of Grand River have now launched the initial phases of their plan to not only reclaim the lands and funds that have been taken from them since before the confederation of Canada in 1867, but also to initiate more international actions that will expose entities that have harmed and stolen from other indigenous nations worldwide.

Although CVN has mentioned the Grand River Mohawks in stories in the past, last week was the story that gives people a bit of an introduction to the Grand River Mohawks; who they are, why they are different other indigenous nations in Canada; what has been done to them, and who it has been done by.

This week, the ball is being put into motion as to how the Mohawks are planning to move forward, not only for their interests, but as mentioned, the interests of other indigenous nations and also humanity in general.

It is a legal initiative, because the Mohawks are dealing with corporate entities that only understand commercial rules on their terms. It is much bigger than this however. It is an emotional initiative, for seeks to reclaim and re-empower the indigenous Earth wisdom that the global cabal has been seeking to remove from the world, because this wisdom represents a direct threat to all that gives this cabal its power. Most importantly however, it is a spiritual initiative: a movement to not only reclaim lands, but to work in partnership with any individuals, companies and allies that truly understand what it means to live under the Great Tree of Peace, and are willing to work and serve others but also our planet that sustains us.

It is about creating a new world within an old world, that will render that old world obsolete. On a human/spiritual level, the Mohawk initiative seeks to work in a form of unofficial partnership with other initiatives that are being undertaken worldwide to help strip this global cabal of the power that has historical held over humanity and the planet, arguably for centuries.

Last week CVN introduced briefly the story that before Canada became a country, the Mohawks fought on behalf of the UK and the monarchy In recognition of this, a parcel of land, their original beaver hunting grounds, was deeded to the Mohawks, through an agreement known as the Haldimand Treaty. A Grand River Trust fund was set up to sustain the Mohawk families as well as the other "Six Nations" and other allies such as the Delawares and Tutelos..

What the Mohawks are able to prove, that most other indigenous nations appear unable to prove, is that not only were monies from this fund stolen and used without the consent of the Mohawks, and paid to numerous entities around the lands now known as the corporation of Canada, this money was never repaid, and now all the beneficiaries of these monies, including the monarchy of the UK are now on the hook for the return of these funds.

The Mohawks can also show that since Canada’s confederation in 1867, the Canadian government has embarked on campaigns of cultural genocide, crimes against humanity, and theft of the landed deeded to the Mohawks before the government ever existed.

This is a huge story, and it has the potential to radically shake the foundations of Canada, although this is not the intention of the Mohawks. The intention is not to upset the status quo, but to re-create it in a more LIFE-honouring and LIFE-affirming way, and those who willingly choose to ally with the Mohawks will have the potential to benefit from living on lands that are truly free, and having first access to healthier foods, jobs with green businesses and industries, as well as having access to greater health and healing opportunities.

The initiative will not be easy, but it has the potential to become much easier with the help of allies and the support of people choosing a more holistic way of living that honours our planet according to the Mohawk Great Tree of Peace. As lands are reclaimed from this global cabal worldwide, people will have a choice to live how they wish, but the pre-condition will be that people live in a sacred bond to the Earth and to the Great Tree of Peace.

There will be those who may not fully understand what this means. Let me try to rephrase it another way, perhaps in more ‘legal’ terms that people may better understand. Harm no one; respect the property of others, and honour all contracts and treaties. These three criteria form the basis of what may be considered natural law. Everything else that has been created by the commercial system of justice known as admiralty law is not law at all.

It is a system of rules that have been given the force of law. These rules were created by people in power. The people in power never consulted the general population on these rules. They abused the power given to them in being elected, to create rules that were not consented to by the people, and other rules were created to put fear into the people if they did not follow those rules.

Living as a natural human being, outside of all the commercial rules will be very liberating to many who understand how they have been kept as slaves to fear, to debt, to separation and to criminal systems such as fiat currency banking and commercial admiralty law.

All of this, and more, is going to be called to account. Today, Friday February 5th, the Mohawks of Grand River have begun sending out official letters from the Office of Ohrerekó:wa, the Mohawk Wolf Clan Chief, with the authorization and support support of the Mohawk Workers and elder women from the Turtle, Wolf and Bear Clans who represent the power of the feminine energy in this more matriarchal society. The first letters will be delivered to officials in the city of Brantford and nearby counties, where many or most of the Grand River Mohawks currently reside, and this will be addressing their immediate land claim and the debt owed by the city to the Mohawks. Following this, letters will be delivered to various entities that were beneficiaries of the historical funds of the Mohawk Trust before Canada became a country.

These include the Regional Municipality of York, the St. Lawrence Seaway; Trillium Railway Company; the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railway companies; the City of Hamilton; the African Methodist Episcopal Church; the City of Toronto; The Law Society of Upper Canada; McGill University; the City of Montreal; the County of Simcoe and arguably the biggest fish, Walton Family, who are behind the Wal-Mart chain of stores and their multinational corporate entity, Walton International.

It should be noted that in December, a statement put out by Canadian National Railways indicated that CN would be giving five million dollars for Syrian refugees in Canada. What this very likely means, as regular listeners will know, is that CN, while having a debt to the Mohawks, is spending money to support what is very likely Daesh militants, trained and funded by the US and Israel, to be admitted into Canada under the humanitarian title of ‘refugee’.

Last year, CVN reported Daesh, the group known as the Islamic State, as having said that they were going to smuggle their militants into European countries as ‘refugees’ and then begin to cause trouble. The world is witnessing increased unrest in European countries and this is likely to happen in Canada…but this is different story.

Also named are various individuals and entities in governance including the Province of Ontario, the Province of Quebec; the Clerk of the Privy Council in the federal government of Canada; the minister for Indigenous and Norther Affairs; the Prime Minister of Canada, the Governor-General of Canada; the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in the UK Parliament; the Queen of England and the governor of the Bank of England.

The federal, provincial, regional and municipal governing entities in Canada who were named in this letter were given a ‘Cease and Desist’ letter. This is a legal term stating that the governing entries: “stop failing to consult with the Chief, deliver records of past dealings, and undertake to establish meaningful communications without delay.” Until now, the Grand River Mohawks as natural beings, have not been invited to participate in any government activities involving the indigenous groups in Canada because the government does not recognize their status as ‘natural humans’ upon the lands to which they have been given custodianship, but also whose lands have been taken from them by the same entities who are not recognizing them.

The other entities: “Additional parties were also further issued requests to acknowledge and/or clarify current and historic indebtedness values and payments made to the KA-NYEN-GEH-HA-KAH (Mohawks) of Grand River respecting lands and monies misappropriated between the pre-Confederation years of 1784-1867 by the Crown. Each entity was given 14 days each to respond with the appropriate information.”

Assuming no responses are received on or before this date, a second letter will be included stating that they have been duly informed; given the opportunity to reply and in choosing not to reply, have now opened the door for possible legal activity against them. This will be reported on more in the coming weeks.

Essentially, in two weeks what the Mohawks expect to confirm is this: who among those in the list intend to cooperate as allies with the Mohawks, and who is choosing not to cooperate with the Mohawks and thus risk further legal action.

The following is a short statement from Bill Squire spokesperson for the Mohawk Workers. He shares a very quick summary of the residential school program and what it did to the Mohawks, and how important it is to move forward:

AUDIO CLIP: CVN 05FEB Bill Squire, spokesperson for The Mohawk Workers.

In the meantime, the Mohawks are inviting indigenous groups and corporate entities to submit a one to two minute greeting either in English, or in their native language with an English translation provided, indicating their support for the initiative and their desire and commitment to work in cooperation with the Mohawks in creating lands where people can live peacefully, and in greater harmony with each other and the planet, while creating societies that are committed to living in ways that honour the planet and the Great Tree of Peace.

These greetings will be posted on a new website being created for this initiative, and the Twitter account will be re-activated, so any choosing to follow this initiative will be able to do so. CVN may choose to air some of these greetings in upcoming broadcasts. The Mohawks have entered into preliminary discussions with several natural indigenous groups on the west coast of Canada, in an attempt to help them exert their power once again as natural beings.

This will represent a threat to politicians and law enforcement whose power is drawn from the commercial rules being passed off as ‘law’.

An article from The Canadian Press via The Globe and Mail on 31JAN reported the following: “ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says a culture is needed within Canadian police forces to ensure indigenous people are treated the same as everyone else. He said that culture must be changed and he predicted the push for change will come from the Canadian people.”

Trudeau’s statement may be seen as hypocritical to those who understand the difference between those who have surrendered to corporate identities,and those who have kept their natural freedoms and rights, given that the Trudeau government has not demonstrated a formal willingness to include the Grand River Mohawks in any discussions relating to indigenous affairs in Canada.

There is another group of Mohawks, located in the French-speaking province of Quebec that have not retained their natural rights and freedoms, although according to an article on the Montreal Gazette website on 01FEB, this group is beginning to exert its authority, ahead of new land claim negotiations. According to the article, “Last week the Kahnawake band council finalized a report outlining the demands of its community members as it moves toward a new round of land claim negotiations with the federal government. Though the report is confidential, Grand Chief Joe Norton made it clear there’s one point the Mohawks won’t back down from.

“This is our land, we’re not surrendering any of it,” Norton told the Montreal Gazette. “A lot of these negotiations come down to a cash settlement in return for the surrendering of lands. That’s unacceptable to us.”

This may present a serious problem to the federal government. Kahnawake’s 45,000-acre claim stretches from Châteauguay to St-Lambert — a swath that encompasses nine Montreal suburbs. Most of the land Kahnawake wants to recover has already been converted into housing, strip malls, factory farms and gas stations.”

If Prime Minister Trudeau is looking for change to be pushed by informed Canadians, and empowered natural beings, he is about to get more than perhaps he was bargaining for.

Considering that humans in general, and in this case, Canadians in particular have been enslaved to commercial/corporate entities, this statement may seem unusual, since the people elected representatives to act on their behalf, and the vast majority are not choosing to do so on the levels that are most important to humanity and our planet.

In the US, an article appearing on the Fort-Russ website on 31JAN has reported the following, although this unconfirmed: “ The indigenous peoples of Alaska and Hawaii appealed to the international community through the United Nations with a request to ensure their right to self-determination. The letter was circulated in Geneva.

In the address, the representatives of the peoples of Alaska and Hawaii urged UN members to raise the issue on May 11th in the framework of the consideration of the UN Council on Human Rights of the periodic review of the human rights and freedoms in the United States, according to TASS.

The appeal emphasizes that the sale of Russian Alaska to the United States in 1867 did "not mean the transfer of sovereignty over Alaska to the United States" and the "US invasion of Hawaii in 1893 was a violation of bilateral treaties and international law."

"The territory of Alaska and Hawaii in 1959 were absorbed by the United States through deception and deliberate breaches of the mandate and UN principles, and the process of self-determination", - stated the document.”

Going back to Australia again this week, an article on the website last October 1st reported the following: “ Ghillar Michael Anderson, Convenor of the Sovereign Union and co-founder of the 1972 Aboriginal Embassy, made the following statement after departing an indigenous community in South Australia, the lands belonging to the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara:

He stated that: “Tjilpi (senior Lawmen), Wati (Lawmen) and Pompa (Law Women) have now come to understand how the authority of the Tjukurpa Law is what gives the sovereign Peoples, the Anangu, dominion, in the absolute sense, over their Lands and Territories. Whiteman law is an imposed law and they no longer accept that the whiteman law is to prevail on or within their Country. They have now decided to develop their own strategies for their Tjukurpa Law to be the effective Law in their County, as it was before the whiteman came.

Murray George, the Chair of Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Law and Culture Pty Ltd was quoted as saying: “Queen got no right here. This is our Country, under our Tjukurpa Law and Culture.”

Further down, the article adds the following: “Another significant issue that was voiced is for people to understand is that the Tjukurpa (Dreaming) in one place has a songline to another and this is replicated across the continent. We may speak many languages, but we have One Law. They also proposed that there can only be one way to unite our people and that is under our Aboriginal Law, not under whiteman law, as whiteman law is about division – not unity.”

As this article was from last October, it was noted that there would also be a Sovereign Union’s Gathering of Nations in November in the Australian capital of Canberra. One of the issues reportedly on the table was the discussion on how to let the world know that indigenous law is the law of the land, and not the Queen’s law.

For those who may be having some challenges attempting to connect the dots, let me explain it this way:

Before Canada, there was the monarchy of the UK, Turtle Island, now known as North America, and all the indigenous nations upon Turtle Island.
As the corporate entities of Canada and the United States came into being, these entities stripped away the natural status of the indigenous peoples and forced them into their own corporate entities, so that they could be governed and controlled by commercial rules given the force of law.

In the US, indigenous nations that surrendered their natural rights and freedoms became identified by terms such as ‘tribes’. In Canada, the indigenous groups that surrendered their natural rights and freedoms became identified as ‘bands’ under the corporate entity of the Assembly of First Nations, as defined by the corporate legislation known as the Indian Act.

As mentioned last week, there are indigenous groups that have consented to surrendering their natural freedoms and rights to attain other rights as corporate entities existing under commercial rules. Then there are those that never surrendered their rights, and yet governments still attempted to impose their commercial rules upon them and treat their lands as those they belonged to a corporate entity, which they do not.

What makes the Mohawk Initiative so significant and so powerful is that the Mohawks can actually prove all of this, whereas other natural indigenous groups may not be able to prove it, and if the can, they may not know exactly how to use the information.

To be fair, some of the entities named in the Mohawk letter may never even have understood what happened, and this is why the Mohawks have issued this letter, inviting them to investigate and to acknowledge their debt, before any further action is taken against them. However, once this further action has begun, it is going to expose a lot of corruption and mistreatment in Ontario and Canada.

It will also expose several very large, current and historical commercial entities that have mistreated and abused indigenous groups worldwide, while stealing land, abusing the land, and enslaving humans under rules to which they never consented. This is where the Mohawk initiative has the potential to help numerous indigenous groups worldwide, and humanity in general.

CVN will be continuing to bring developments to this story and how events expect to move forward once the cooperators and noncooperators have been identified.

It could be fair to say that this initiative represents a massive, tectonic shift, that is moving the foundations under which numerous governments and corporate entities have based their power, fraud and corruption. The coming earthquake represents not only a physical rebalancing on the land of Earth for many humans, but also a coming freedom from these entities in a healing and rebalancing of humans on multiple levels.

As reported over the last couple of weeks, attention is being drawn back to the story of the Grand River Mohawks, located near Brantford, Ontario, roughly one hour west of Toronto.

This story will be a complicated one, and when I say this, I do not mean to imply that the complication is unique to the Grand River Mohawks. The story of the abuse of countless indigenous tribes worldwide has been complicated. The story of the enslavement of humanity in general, as many are now learning is incredibly complicated.

There are numerous issues that are being brought to the attention of many people, and some of those people are not able to connect the dots of the issue that they happen to be passionate about, with so many other issues.

This group known as the global cabal has been ingenious in finding ways to keep people distracted on multiple levels, while giving them the illusion that they are living in free and democratic societies. Although perhaps slightly true up to a point, the vast majority are only now beginning to see and understand the extent of the enslavement to which humanity has been kept.

Over the coming weeks, as this story is being told, CVN is going to try its best to tell the story in a way that can be followed by the listeners. The transcript to these stories will be posted in the show summary for people to read for greater clarity, and supporting documentation such as diagrams will be posted if they are provided to CVN.

As was reported last week, there is a brewing local-level controversy that, to some listeners may not seem important because it is affecting only one group of indigenous people in one location. This however would be a misinterpretation because the issues that are now being brought into the light by the Grand River Mohawks have profound implications worldwide and also upon numerous very prominent people in global affairs. On various levels, this story has the potential to touch almost every continent, because abuse of the Grand River Mohawks was committed by many of the same entities directly or indirectly connected to others who have been responsible for the enslavement of humanity and the destruction of our planet for profit, power and greed.

The story is about some Mohawks of three villages and their allies whose attachment to Crown treaties caused them to work together to protect the Grand River Territory and what was left of Tkanatahere GAN-AH-DAH-HEY-LAY - the traditional 5 Nations Hunting Grounds with the British up until after the war of 1812. Long before Canada. The Haldimand Territory was nearly 1 million acres and partially leased - earning revenue for the Mohawks and others of the formerly (American) "Six Nations" - at the end of hostilites. Power of Attorney was vested by "Six Natons" chiefs, warriors, and clan mothers - to Joseph Brant, a Grand River Mohawk (original founders of the League of Peace). Within the next decades following Brant's death, that territory would be reduced to Reservation No. 40 administered by the "Six Nations Elected Band Council" under Federal laws such as the Indian Act.

What makes this story important, is that, finally, an indigenous nation that is still truly free has the legal proof to expose the fraud and corruption, but it is also a nation that has committed to opening doors with other indigenous nations and even national governments to begin implementing plans to rebuild this planet and restore lands and freedoms to not only indigenous nations, but to any human seeking to live under the great tree of peace in harmony and unity not only with others but also in sacred bond to the Earth that sustains us.

This particular story starts in Canada, but it can link to virtually any other case of abuse towards indigenous peoples, their Earth wisdom or their Earth-honouring traditions. They are not unique, but little by little, their voices are once again uniting under the possibility that maybe this global cabal can shut down once and for all, and it begins here and it begins now.

Before we begin, let’s take a look at an example of indigenous racism in Australia. One scandal that broke out last August involved a celebrated indigenous Aussie Rules footballer named Adam Goodes. Goodes' indigenous mother has her ancestry linked two tribes in Australia.

The full controversy involving Goodes can read in a link in the show summary. The controversy appears to have started when a young football fan called Goodes an ‘ape’. Goodes pointed the fan out to security who had her removed. She was thirteen. There were apologies, including from the young girl. Goodes, although hurt, encouraged the community to stand behind her and not blame her. His pride in celebrating in indigenous connections continued to bring repeated rounds of booing, despite his success as a player. Eventually the stress forced him into retirement, despite apologies from the club that they do not support racism. - The controversy of Adam Goodes.

Stan Grant, an indigenous journalist from the Wiradjuri tribe of New South Wales, wrote of the controversy last year and won an award for his work, describing the effects of the booing on the hearts and ears of the indigenous people. At the same time he was invited to speak on a debate program where the question focused on racism in Australia. The video of that speech was released online by the Ethics Centre that sponsored the debate, and the video has gone viral. An article appearing on the London Guardian website by Melissa Davey on 24JAN reports on the story that has taken on a new importance in Australia. The article contains excerpts of the speech made by Stan Grant that has gone viral. According to the article, as of the day it was printed, the video had received 850,000 views and 28,000 shares via Facebook and had been viewed more than 50,000 times total on different uploads of the speech by the evening of the 24th.

The article closes noting that: “The media commentator and writer, Mike Carlton, described Grant’s address as Australia’s “Martin Luther King moment,” and “Stan Grant” was still trending on Twitter on Sunday morning.”

Grant sums up the Australian version well, but it is a story that could be told in many countries with local variations, and it is happening across Canada and with the Grand River Mohawks.

Until now, indigenous tribes have either had to surrender their rights and freedoms to various corporate or legal entities in order to receive any kind of recognition from national governments. Indigenous tribes that retained their natural status as free humans were not acknowledged and in the case of the Grand River Mohawks, were just treated as corporate entities and had their land stolen because the government and its partner entities thought that they could get away with it without getting caught.

At least part of the reason for the cabal attempts to suppress indigenous groups is for pretty much the same reason as they attempt to dumb down and harm children through dangerous vaccines, violent video games, and super-unhealthy foods. It comes down to fear. The cabal establishment fears what today’s younger children and indigenous cultures represent: an awakening of humanity’s deeper spiritual inner power.

Very few indigenous tribes, if any, have had any kind of legal footing to stand upon to exert their rights and freedoms according to their status as natural beings, free from the corporate entity enslavement.

Until now. The Grand River Mohawks have all the pieces to make a lawful claim, not only for their own lands, but also a claim on behalf of indigenous tribes worldwide, and humanity in general.

It is all connected, in ways that are more profound than most will fully be able to grasp right away, and to stretch it even further, these connections go beyond human consciousness and beyond even our planet to include civilizations and technologies beyond earth and awareness that transcends the current human 3D perception of it. That however is further down the road.

What is happening this week is this. In Brantford, there is a controversial land transfer that was expected to close on the 28th. This land was to transfer from Brant County to the city of Brantford itself. All the information about this land deal cannot be fully revealed at this time but will be forthcoming when the time is right.

The transfer is being protested by the Grand River Mohawks because they can show that they still have the deeded title to this land according to an agreement that was made even before the land was known as the country, or corporation of Canada. No one has the right to transfer any land to any one because this land was never surrendered, nor were there any negotiations involving the traditional and natural guardians of that land.

There are two terms that need to clarified at this point. The Province of Ontario website describes the ‘Six Nations of The Grand River’ according to their page these six nations are the “Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Cayuga, Onondaga and Tuscarora nations”. On that same page, there is a link to land claims where people can view all outstanding land claims. Strangely, the Mohawk land claim is not present, because the debt is not acknowledged, although it can be proven. - Government of Ontario webpage for the Six Nations of Grand River.

An article by Jim Windle, appearing on the Two Row Times news website on 26JAN writes the following: “ The second of two consultation meetings on the Brant-Brantford land transfer, was held at the Grand Valley Church on Powerline Road on Thursday evening. As in the first meeting last week at Lions Park, it was full to the walls, and both Mayor Ron Eddy representing the County of Brant and Chris Friel representing Brantford were grilled by residents unhappy with the addition of Tutela Heights to the transfer of land from the County to the City.

Existing residents fear that high density development would ruin the esthetic appeal of their homes, and therefore, negatively impact the value of their property.”

As far as the residents are concerned, this is their major issue, however as many are now beginning to learn, the issue is much much bigger than just this.

One elder of the Grand River Mohawks, Jan Longboat appeared to be reflecting the language of a letter put out by the Chief of the Mohawk Wolf Clan earlier in the week when she spoke at the meeting. She was quoted as saying the following: “ “First of all, I would like to say that we are not citizens of Canada, and would you please refer to us as the indigenous people of these lands,” she began. “My family has lived at Grand River ever since we came here with Joseph Brant in 1784. The Haldimand Deed, or Proclamation, predates the creation of Upper Canada, which was 1791. Canada didn’t even exist when our people came to this territory under the Haldimand Deed.”

The Mohawk lands were deeded to them for their guardianship before Canada came into existence, and thus the Canadian government has no right to expropriate these lands from the Mohawks. Yet, this is exactly what they have been doing, with numerous big cities and a large industrial presence upon these lands with no compensation paid to the Mohawks. This is what the Grand River Mohawks are able to prove.

At present, there is a massive, outstanding debt owed to the Grand River Mohawks, a debt that was formally acknowledged by a former mayor of the City of Brantford, but has not been acknowledge by the provincial government of Ontario nor the federal government in Ottawa.

Where it may get a bit confusing for listeners is in understanding the process of conflict but also the process of resolution. We have numerous corporate entities and one major global corporation involved in the lands that have been deeded for guardianship by the Mohawks. These entities operate under the commercial jurisdiction of admiralty law.

Although there is an extremely large amount of funds that are owed to the Mohawks with interest resulting from monies that have been taken without permission from accounts that were holding Mohawk funds in trust, the primary issue is not so much about the money, but more about the land. The Mohawks have determined that it is more important to secure the lands that are rightfully theirs, while also helping other indigenous nations to secure lands that lawfully belong to them, so that all indigenous nations can begin to work together, and also with any allies, to recreate a healthier, more peaceful, and more Earth-honuring prosperity that will benefit those choosing to live in ways that honour the great Tree of Peace.

More information will be forthcoming next week.
