Trumped up charges against Shawn will be made clear in the trial. Nov 15, 2006, a convoy of army trucks from Trenton were driving with ‘student drivers’ across Tyendinaga Territory when they were stopped by Bay of Quinte Mohawks.

Provincial police eventually escorted the military away. In January 2007, Shawn Brant and another Mohawk activist, Mario Baptiste, were arrested. Shawn was charged with ‘uttering death threats’, Mario with ‘assault’ and ‘mischief’, in conjunction with the November 15 2006 incident.

Shawn has said members of his own community have been told not to attend the trial, to keep the focus on the Culbertson Tract and the broken land promises. He has also said though, it ‘would be great’ to have other activists and allies in court. Please consider attending.
