Onkwehonwe remove british border marker

Friday afternoon, October 30 2009 in Kanatakon. Onkwehonwe (Mohawks) removed one of the british land markers that were forced on Onkwehonwe Lands, back in the early 1900s, at the border of the US and Canada.

Let's hear it for the Mohawks!

What a great time I had watching this video of the Mohawks ripping out this border marker with a backhoe. Reminded me of when the Mohawk Warrior Society came to the southern border, at the Indigenous Border Summit in 2007. Horrified over the building of the border wall on Tohono O'odham land, and the CAGE outdoor migrant prison and the federal US spy tower on O'odham land, the Mohawks spotted the US Border Patrol arresting a pitiful group of tiny Mayans, mostly women and children. Without a pause, the Mohawks jumped out of the cars and rushed the Border Patrol, who fled like scared dogs with their tails between their knees. Sadly, the pitiful migrants were smashed into the back of the vehicle and became another group of desperate and hungry Mayans arrested on Tohono O'odham land by the white agents of darkness, the US Border Patrol.
