MCK sends letter to Indigenous Affairs denouncing Mikinak of Beauharnois & Confederation of Aboriginal People of Canada


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawą:ke wishes to inform the community that a letter has been sent to the Ministers of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and Justice Canada in regards to a group of people referring to themselves as the ′Mikinak of Beauharnois,′ who have proclaimed to be a territorial First Nation. The group appears to be closely aligned with the ′Confederation of Aboriginal People of Canada′ spearheaded by Guillaume Carle.
The purpose of the letter is to officially convey Kahnawą:ke′s condemnation of this unrecognized group and their claims over traditional Mohawk Territory, and to request that Canada intervene and quash the fraudulent misrepresentations being made by this group and immediately cease any engagement with these types of illegitimate groups.
A similar letter will also be sent to the Premier of Quebec to raise attention to the danger this has on the agreement for Kahnawa’kehró:non tax exemption at point of sale. Canada and Quebec both stand to lose tax revenues from such fraudulent taxation benefits.
The Mohawk Council of Kahnawą:ke is prepared to work collaboratively with the Federal Government to determine a course of action that ensures the title and rights of the Mohawks of Kahnawą:ke are protected from the encroachment of fraudulent groups such as the Mikinak and Confederation of Aboriginal People of Canada," said Grand Chief Joe Tokwiro Norton. "We implore Canada to take swift and meaningful action to put a stop to these fraudulent groups before the situation grows any more contentious."
