Canada says it, not Kahnawake, gets to decide on band membership issues

Who is a Mohawk?

The answer could set the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake on a collision course with the federal government amid renewed debate over who can live on the South Shore reserve.

    I’m sorry to say it but natives are very racist. I have one native friend who married off the rez and his kids were constantly harassed, even though they look native and not like their mother.

    Another native I know told me how his son was threatened for marrying a non-native women.

    Lastly there was a murder near me a few years back. A native lady was living with her boyfriend who wasn’t native. Her two female cousins showed up at the house and killed the boyfriend because they didn’t agree with mix relationships.

      Nafive or halfbreed?

          Are these people who you are talking about full blooded natives or halfbreeds?

          The angriest and loudest are usually self loathing halfbreeds who just spew that type of shit in some pathetic attempt to gain acceptance as native (or black) by being the most radical, most anti-white.

          You know… the Pam Palmater’s, the Malcolm X’s, the Louis Farrakhan’s. the Louis Riel’s of the world.

            ok now I under stand the question.

            The one who’s kids where harassed was himself half native so his kids are quarter. The other friend was full native and didn’t care about his son marrying off rez but worried about the safety of his grandkids.

            The two who committed the murder – no idea.

          • lolwut?

            I’m willing to bet there was halfbreeds behind the scenes feeding that.

            Look at the radical black and native groups carefully who the leaders are, the ones front and center and places like Caledonia, the ones in the background pushing the full blooded natives into physical altercations. usually getting them fueled up on booze and using them as a weapon.

            History is full of them Halfbreeds leading the charge
            or urging violence from the safety of the rear.

            here is BC there are NO full blood indians left. lots are descendants of indian women whored out by their tribe, working in Victoria or Nanaimo.and coming home only to birth the children.

          • lolwut?

            Sure there is, mostly up the coast in the remote places and the northern interior. Prince Rupert, Prince George, Port Hardy not so much.

            There are even places in the Yukon in what is now Nunavut where everyone is pure blood and a good deal of the people over 65 don’t even speak English. Even the CBC has channels in native languages up north.

            Yu’pik girl I know from Alaska didn’t learn to speak English
            until she was 9.

            Sure you’ll see a lot more mixed in the larger cities
            but the more remote you get the more you’ll see
            that includes SK, MB and YK.

            Places like Ontario and Quebec saw a lot of fighting
            with natives taking sides with the English and French
            so they lived together more then then places like BC.

    • Awful.

  • WhiteRabbit3

    Historically there is so much mixed blood that it may be that not a single band member is pure Mohican.
    I wonder how the SJWs will spin this one. Bit of dilemma for them, as they tend to instinctively side with the band no matter what.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Any moment now Justin Trudeau will make a statement supporting Kahnawake’s right to exclude.

  • Elephant in the Thread

    I support the Mohawks, they are entitled to preserve their identity, just as all other groups have the same rights. The numbers of their people are so low they need to be careful and protective of their genetic identities. It’s a slippery slope when you start letting members of outside groups come in and can lead to greater numbers in the future which, in turn, will lead to the dilution of their culture and people. As we have seen in all the Western countries once you open the immigration door little it becomes impossible to close.

    • lolwut?

      Problem is the people leading this whole thing are heavily mixed.Watch videos and check pictures and you’ll see nothing but brown and blond hair, green and blue eyes.

      Their whiter then a lot of the people on this blog.

      Half-breeds are in power and they want to keep that power by removing
      the biggest threat to that power, white people look exactly like them
      and bring into question their own status as native.

        You beat me to it.

    • Minicapt

      What do they offer which deserves ‘saving’?


      • Elephant in the Thread

        The point is not what’s worth saving it’s to set a precedent. The traditional Canadian is being completely overwhelmed demographically in most major cities and if the patterns continue we are going to be struggling to retain our identities in 50 to a 100 years. So we need to make the argument now that the traditional people of lands have a right to not only retain their identities but to be able to flourish in those lands. This is a microcosm of what is going on right across our country and should be used as an example to protect our traditional identity.

    • Problem is…if a group is few in number and if the group doesn’t allow intermarriage, the result is inbreeding, which leads to genetic disease.

    Hitler would approve.

    • Alain

      Not really since the Nazis believed in blood purity, and none of these would pass the test.

    Let’s play Spot the “Native”……..

    • There were natives in that?

      • lolwut?

        Pretendian Nation run by Chief Walks-in-Reeboks.

          My wife is Metis and she wants no part of that.
          I love her but I still have arguments with her about Louis Riel.
          And laundry.
          I’ll take the money when my kids get to university.
          It’s their heritage not mine.

          • lolwut?

            Riel wasn’t the great hero many would like to make him out to be. His goals for Manitoba was a homeland for Metis
            only and the existing full blooded native population were welcome to stay but without the rights and privileges Metis
            would enjoy.

    We don’t smoke marijuana in Kahnawak-ee,

    We don’t take our trips on LSD

    We don’t let our hair grow long and shaggy,

    White lightnin’s still the biggest thrill of all.

    I’m proud to be a Mohawk-ee from Kahnawak-ee.

    Apologies to Merle Haggard but the whole thing is worthy of mock-ee.

  • Make reservations a thing of the past. Make them into municipalities and the chiefs mayors.

    Try pulling that racist/money-stealing crap then.
