STATEMENT OF PEOPLE CONCERNED ABOUT
THE RIGHTS OF TWO WOMEN WHO WERE
BRUTALLY ASSAULTED AND PHYSICALLY
HARMED BY CANADA BORDER SERVICES
Cornwall. July 15, 2008. On June 14th 2008
Katenies and Kahentinetha – who are both writers
and contributors to Mohawk Nation News [MNN
www.mohawknationnews.com] – were handcuffed and tackled
to the ground at the Cornwall border checkpoint.
The Canada Border Services agents acted as though
they had lost control of themselves, or they had no
regard for legal propriety. Neither woman did
anything wrong. The attacks were unprovoked but
seem to have been directed by whoever was at the
other end of the cell phone.
Katenies was jailed and held incommunicado for
three days. Kahentinetha suffered a heart attack
and is under the care of her doctors and her family.
Because of her condition Kahentinetha cannot go
to court to support Katenies.
Katenies demands respect for herself, for anyone
who asserts Kanion’ke:haka jurisdiction and
condemns Canada’s illegal border. The charges
against her are false and vindictive. The Ontario
court is public. Anyone who believes in the rule
of law and condemns the brutal attacks on these
women and many others is welcome to stand with
Ontario Provincial Court, 29 – 2nd Street West,
Cornwall Ontario, 9:00 a.m. Mon. July 14, 2008
Legal actions will need to be taken to protect our
rights. We have no funds. Canada is hiring costly
law firms to defend their illegal actions and suppress
our rights. If you can donate anything to our cause,
it will be greatly appreciated. Send it to: “MNN
