Caledonia - prospects for peace

In an update to my previous post, my hopes for a peaceful resolution have gone down.

I did some further reading about Kahentinetha Horn, who I posted some info on earlier today. Scary stuff. If she has anything to do with the negotiations, there's no hope whatsoever.

A sample...
Welcome to freedom and democracy in Canada. This is what colonial Canada is doing to us because we have backed them into a corner demanding they obey the law and return our stolen land and resources back to us.

We are being attacked financially. The RCMP, the OPP, the Customs and the Indigenous Police are working together. These authorities are purporting that funds from cigarettes are supporting the Six Nations reclamation as if our trade is illegal. When they claim that we are being financed by “organized crime”, they are referring to the cigarette trade. Fair is fair. They should acknowledge that their mines, clear cut logging, and other industries that have destroyed our environment are also criminal.

We remind these vicious colonial serpent heads that putting the squeeze on us will backfire on you. Turtle Island is ours. Every attack on us will endanger you, Canada.
Anyone care to comment on the line "Turtle Island IS OURS"? Will endanger us how, Ms. Horn? Is that a threat? All Canadian industries are "criminal"? That's right, my fellow Canadians... she claims that you're a criminal, because you likely have a job that has some connection to Canadian industry.

Again, I sure hope she's not at the negotiating table... otherwise we might be sitting here for a while.

    Both the Post and the Record had excellent articles this Saturday regarding the whole situation. One of them talked about Ms. Horn I think. Interesting background.

    thank god for the truth. once and a while, if it ever gets out, we shouldn't just kill it. each and every element of her posts has relevance, substance, and history.

    i'm going to help you. become black for a day and go wander in the deep south in the sixties. this will give you a good perspective on just how a mohawk feels in canada. and to be a woman. deadly.

    OC, no Mohawk, nor any other Native, should have to face that sort of racism... ever. Not anywhere, not anytime, in Canada. Those who treat their fellow human beings with such comtempt ought to be charged, convicted, and punished, IMHO.

    In all of my posts and comments, I've just been trying to point out the simple fact that the land claim CANNOT and WILL NOT succeed, and the attitude of defiance and contempt for the nation of Canada, and the Canadian people, being fostered by Ms. Horn's statements aren't going to change that fact, nor are they going to help the situation in any way, shape, or form.

    Do you think they can help at all? If so, how?

    Do you think that the average Joe Canadian living in the affected area will simply read such a statement and say, "Gee whiz, I guess I've got to abandon my home that I've been working for decades to pay for", just because some moronic white guy 200 years ago made an agreement that he had no intention of keeping?

    NOT A CHANCE. (and for the record, I'm not one of those people who would lose his home) Take note that I'm not debating the morality of what happened back then... it was wrong, and should be remedied somehow. But there is NO WAY that the land as-is will be returned... it is just NOT going to happen. It's IMPOSSIBLE.

    That's all I'm trying to say here. And again, I'll ask the same question I've asked over and over again, how do we get past this issue, knowing that there is no possible way that the land will be returned carte-blanche?
