Mass Execution of Children Alleged

Posted on November 09, 2011 by itccs

My brother Rufus saw them take all those children and stand them up next to a big ditch, and then the soldiers shot them all and they all fell into that ditch. Some of the kids were still alive and they just poured the dirt in on top of them. Buried them alive.

Prisoners-of-the-church

This mass murder happened in 1943 – not in Nazi held Europe, but in Brantford, Ontario, on land occupied by the Canadian Army, at its Basic Training Camp Number 20.

These words were spoken today on the Native America Calling Radio program by Lorna McNaughton of Oshweken, Ontario: a survivor of the infamous “Mush Hole”, the Brantford Mohawk Indian residential school, run by the Church and Crown of England until 1970.

Why were these children shot? According to Lorna:

The school was overcrowded just then. I was there, I saw the army bring in all these cots for lots of new kids who showed up from all over the country. They must have just wanted to get rid of all the extra hungry mouths; it was wartime and everything was rationed. One day those new kids were in the dorms, then they were all taken out, and we never saw any of them kids again.

A probable site of this mass burial of the executed children has been located, and is now under the protection and jurisdiction of the Onkwehonwe Mohawk Nation and its clan mothers. Surveys and possible excavations will proceed under professional guidance, and according to the protocols of the Onkwehonwe people.

The Mohawk people call upon all people of good will to help protect the remains of these murdered children until international observers can arrive to monitor events and evidence that is uncovered.

This site is under the jurisdiction of the Onkwehonwe Mohawk people and not the government of Canada or the Crown or Church of England.

The investigation into the Canadian Genocide continues. Stay tuned for regular updates from the Onkwehonwe Mohawk Nation and the ITCCS.

Speaking Tour Rescheduled

Posted on October 27, 2011 by itccs
Dear friends,

The momentous events of the past few months have caused me to revise my original plans for an October-November European and cross-American organizing tour connected to our ITCCS Tribunal. So I am sorry for any confusion and change in plans caused by this, and by my pre-occupation with the uncovering of possible grave sites at Canada’s oldest Indian residential school.

Some of you have put a lot of energy into bringing me to your communities during October and November – an effort which is deeply appreciated by me and many others – and I hope you will share this letter with everyone who anticipated my arrival and who wants to lend their support to our campaign.

In a nutshell, my original speaking and tour timetable has been moved from the fall of this year to the spring of 2012. This has been caused by my involvement in the historic decision of elders of the Mohawk – Onkwehonwe people near Brantford, Ontario to begin their own inquiry into deaths of children at the local, Church of England Indian residential school, and repatriate the remains of those children for a proper burial. I’ve been deeply involved in this investigation in my role as representative of our ITCCS Tribunal, and accordingly I have had to put on hold other lecture commitments until the new year.

By early 2012, we hope to have from this Brantford investigation the first authenticated forensic evidence of killings of children in church-run schools in Canada, and I will then be bringing that evidence to human rights courts and media groups in Dublin, London, Brussels, Rome and elsewhere. I expect this will begin during late February or early March of 2012.

I have also been asked to help organize a massive convergence on the Vatican during Easter week of 2012 – Easter falls on April 8 – and so I will coordinate all of my future speaking events in Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and other European nations to occur during the period of March and April, 2012.

As for North America, / Turtle Island, I am commencing a Canadian and USA speaking tour prior to my European one, during the last week of January and during February of 2012.

There will be more updates about all this coming to you during the next few months, but for now, please mark those months as times to book me to speak and meet with local groups of survivors of church crimes, and others involved in our campaign.

It will help this process if media interviews with me can be arranged early in the new year to help us kick off this new phase of our work.

I thank you for your patience and perseverance, and I look forward to hearing from and seeing you all soon. This is an historic and exciting time!

in friendship,

Kevin Annett / Rawennatshani (“Powerful Voice”, given upon my adoption into the Mohawk-Onkwehonwe Nation)

Let the Truth Shine Now, so that the Dead may Rest: An Open Letter of Clarification from Rawennatshani – Kevin Annett

Posted on October 24, 2011 by itccs

two row wampum

I am Rawennatshani, an adopted member of the Turtle clan of the Onkwehonwe Nation of the Grand River. My English name is Kevin Annett and my ancestral name is Caoimhin Ui Niall of the Gaelic Nation, Clan O’Neill.

I ask that the blessings and presence of my ancestors, and yours, guide my words to you so that you may receive and understand them in truth.

Last April, I was asked in writing by elders of the Turtle and Wolf clans of the Onkwehonwe Nation to come to their territory for two reasons: to help them bring home for a proper burial the remains of children who died and are buried at the former Mohawk Indian residential school in Brantford, and to help determine how they died so that those responsible can be brought to justice.

It has always been my purpose to follow the protocols of the Nation and be led by the wishes of elders and survivors of the “Mush Hole” residential school, and I have done so from the beginning of my time among you.

On October 1, I commenced this work under the direction and authority of clan mothers of the Nation. Our work has consisted of scanning the grounds of the school for evidence of graves, doing research, and conducting a test dig on grounds far from the school. We have not so far uncovered the remains of any human being.

The fact that we have commenced this work is historic and a turning point in the relations between our nations, and therefore it is essential that the truth of what we are doing and uncovering be made known to the world.

In doing so, the feelings and memories aroused by our work among survivors and others must be treated respectfully and with understanding, while recognizing that only the truth of what occurred at the Brantford school, and elsewhere, can set us all free.

It is unfortunate but to be expected that some people, and elements within various levels of government and the church that ran the Mush Hole school and who are legally and morally liable for the deaths of the children there, are seeking now to misrepresent me and the work we are doing.

It has been claimed publicly by these people, without proof, that I, a non-native, have arrived uninvited to your territory with a shovel in my hand to “dig up children” at the school. A genuine fear campaign is being stoked to discredit our important work, and focus the attention on me rather than the countless children lying under the ground at the school. But the issue at hand is not me at all, but the crimes against humanity inflicted by the churches and Crown of England on entire indigenous nations, including yours.

I ask those who are responsible for spreading lies and misinformation, and those who are misled by such fear-mongering, to remember again what is at stake, and how many children’s spirits look to us to give them final rest and recognition.

I should make clear, too, that in their zeal to share what we are uncovering and support our efforts, some media outlets have overstated our findings and made reference to our opening mass graves of children. Let me state, clearly, that we have not excavated any such graves, although on the basis of much evidence we do believe that the grounds of the Mush Hole school constitute an enormous mass grave of children who died there.

In order to avoid further rumors and misunderstanding, I urge all people of good will to ask the members of our community, and its elders, for clarification of events as they happen, by speaking to them and to Bill Squire directly at 519-757-3624.

I am pleased to report that the example set by the Onkwehonwe people has been taken up by other nations, who are now planning to begin repatriating children from burial sites at other former residential schools across “Canada”.

I look forward to returning to your community in mid November to continue the mandate given to me by elders, clan mothers and residential school survivors.

Please contact me if you wish to discuss this or seek clarification about anything I’ve said.

All my relations,

I am Rawennatshani

A Weekly Update on the Mohawk Inquiry: The Search for the Dead Continues

Posted on October 17, 2011 by itccs

A second indigenous Nation authorizes digs for their lost children and endorses the ITCCS – The Canadian government strikes back against the Mohawk residential school inquiry, and a long cover-up is revealed.

Brantford, Ontario:

At the start of a third week of an unprecedented aboriginal-led investigation into the burial sites of missing children at Canada’s oldest Indian residential school, more native nations are rallying to the cause of Mohawk elders hunting for mass graves – and the government of Canada is striking back.

A second indigenous group, the traditional Squamish nation on Canada’s west coast, has authorized ITCCS Secretary Kevin Annett to begin surveys and digs for graves of residential school children on their own territory. In a written declaration, traditional elder (siem) Kiapilano stated,

“As the Landlord to the Squamish Nation lands and natural resources, I appoint Kevin Annett Eagle Strong Voice to act with a Right of Entry to claim the said buildings of all the Anglican, Catholic and United churches located on Squamish Nation territory … Kevin is given full authority to access the burial sites for excavation, conduct (of) forensic research as to the cause of death, and provide a proper traditional burial pursuant to Squamish nation ancient ways, and surrender those responsible for this genocide to my people or a public inquiry …”

The Squamish territory comprises all of the present city of Vancouver and its surrounding region, including the location of three former Indian residential schools.

Groups among the Anishnabe (Ojibway) people in central Canada, and the Maliseet nation in the Maritimes, also announced this week plans to conduct their own inquiries into children who went missing in local Indian residential schools.

In response to how quickly the Mohawk example is spreading, the Canadian government has moved quickly to undermine and stop the survey and excavations in Brantford, and continue a history of concealing the remains of children who died there.

After initially supporting the Mohawk elders-led digs and survey at the Brantford residential school site, “chief” Bill Monture of the state-funded Six Nations Band Council announced on October 10 that he now opposed the project, and denied further use of the council’s Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Unit, and the data it had gathered on the school grounds, to the elders’ group.

Monture’s sudden reversal occurred shortly after he was summoned to Canada’s capital for consultation with government officials.

Monture’s band council has a history of concealing the deaths of children at the Brantford school. In 1982, and again in 2008, skeletal remains of children were found on the grounds of the former residential school, but the results of forensic examinations were kept secret by the band council, and the remains vanished.

Meanwhile, the inquiry continues on the site of the Brantford residential school as Mohawk volunteers survey grave sites, take samples and uncover documents indicating that the death and burial of children at the Church of England school was reported as recently as 1969, a year before the school closed. These and other accounts of crimes at the school were deliberately buried by Anglican Church officials of the local Huron Diocese.

“We’re securing another GPR scanner and are going ahead with plans to excavate at the school once an archaeological and forensics team is gathered over the next few weeks. We need the help now of all good people” said Mohawk elder Bill Squire today.

To aid the Mohawk inquiry and its work with Kevin Annett and the ITCCS, contact Squire at 519-757-3624 or Kevin Annett through this website or at 250-591-4573.

Digging Mass Graves at Residential Schools in Canada: Breaking News Update 13/10/11

Posted on October 13, 2011 by itccs

Posted by Vatican Crimes:

BRANTFORD, ON – The Mohawk Nation in Grand River in collaboration with the ITCCS (International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State) and its secretary Kevin Annett bring the latest news on the digging of children mass graves that have begun in Brantford, Ontario to expose the crimes committed by Church and State against thousands of native children.

This report announces the latest update on these forensic investigations as of October 12, 2011. As secretary of the International Tribunal, Kevin Annett was invited and kindly welcomes by the Mohawk nation for this initiative of looking for justice – that Kevin was even adopted into the nation – and not being intrusive like the rumors that have been circulating in yet another attempt to stop the evidence from coming to light.

The investigations will continue with the full support of the Mothers as the it is time for the world to know the truth. The evidence obtained will be utilized to take it to the tribunals to take place in London, UK and other countries this fall.

Investigations of children’s graves continues; Kevin Annett adopted into Mohawk Nation, given name and protection; Excavations spark similar actions in other native nations

dig 4
Test dig in forest near Mohawk Institute residential school

Both pro- and anti-government groups in the Mohawk Nation united this past week to endorse the independent investigation into mass graves of children at the former Mohawk Institute Indian residential school. The inquiry was initiated last April by nine elders of the Wolf and Turtle clans.

Chief Bill Montour of the government-funded Mohawk Band Council said publicly at a council meeting on October 4,

“This dig is long overdue and it’s needed. I back this thing one hundred percent.”

Meanwhile, the Men’s Fire, a traditional group of warriors from all of the Six Nations, arrived at the excavation site the same day to provide security and protection for the inquiry members, especially for Kevin Annett of the ITCCS, who was asked by the Wolf and Turtle elders in writing to organize the inquiry into the missing children of the Brantford school.

As a sign of their support for Kevin Annett and the ITCCS, these elders formally adopted Kevin into the Turtle Clan of the Mohawk (Ongyahonway) Nation at a ceremony on October 6, and gave him the name Rawennatshani, which means “One who warns the people with a strong and wise voice”.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) survey of Mohawk school grounds

The inquiry into the fate of many hundreds of missing children at the school continued this week, through Ground Penetrating Radar surveys that revealed that graves of children on school grounds were buried under tons of soil; and that suspected grave sites extend into the wooded perimeter of the former school, which was founded by the Crown and Church of England in 1832.

“We’re looking at a massive investigation into an enormous crime site, but at least it’s begun” commented Kevin Annett today.

“We hope to have a preliminary report issued before the new year once we have samples and other evidence analyzed forensically. We’ve already assembled an archaeological team to do a professional study of what’s being uncovered.”

Earlier this week, traditional Mohawk elders announced that they were imposing their own jurisdiction over the graves of residential school children, and declared that the government of Canada, its police and courts had no authority to intervene into their investigation.

Elsewhere in Canada, groups among the Maliseet, Anishnabe and Sovereign ©Skwxwú7mesh-Squamish™ indigenous nations announced this week their intent to launch their own digs and inquiries at suspected mass grave sites at former residential schools on their territories, independently of the government’s stage-managed “Truth and Reconciliation Commission.”

“The Mohawks have inspired all of us” said Jeremiah Jourdain of the Anishnabe nation in Winnipeg today.

“Now we have to spread this movement to bring the children home on our terms – and prosecute those who killed them.”

Nearly half of all Canadian Indian residential school students – more than 50,000 children – died or went missing between 1832 and 1996, when the last school closed.

A You Tube presentation of these events will be forthcoming this week. Images follow.
