Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Allies: This is the document that Woman Title Holder, Katenies, served and filed on the Cornwall court on Monday December 18th 2006. It’s based on the Two Row Wampum and the Kaianerehkowa. She did not acknowledge the colonial corporation's [Customs Canada] phony charges. She already asked how Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II got jurisdiction over her and our land. They refused to answer. She's found the Queen, the corporation of Canada and all its public and private corporations guilty of theft, etc. She's asking for restitution. The message was so dangerous they got everybody out of the courtroom first. She refused to stand up and started reading it. “That’s enough!” they yelled. Testosterone flew about the room as they all tried to be hyper-macho. They tried to set the date for another performance. She and her supporters didn’t hear and left. MNN
Katenies [aka Janet Davis] v. HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
SUBMITTED TO: THE COLONIAL ONTARIO COURT, PROVINCIAL DIVISION, 29 SECOND ST. WEST, CORNWALL 0NTARIO CANADA ON KANION’KE:HAKA LAND
FROM: Katenies [aka Janet Davis], Bear Clan, Woman Title Holder of Turtle Island; Onkwehonweh, Sovereign, a Manifestation of All the Elements as a real, flesh and blood Hueman being, does take exception to Fraud committed by HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN.
REGARDING: illegal invasion, trespass, occupation and assumption of authority and jurisdiction over me and my land by CANADA CUSTOMS AND REVENUE AGENCY INCORPORATED, ET. AL, PROVINCE OF ONTARIO INCORPORATED, ET. AL, CANADA INCORPORATED ET. AL, EAST INDIA COMPANY, HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN OF CANADA.
1. Kanion’ke:haka/Mohawk land comprises at least 20 million acres of Northeastern Turtle Island. It is referred to as the St. Lawrence Valley, Great Lakes watershed, southern Quebec, southern Ontario, south to New York State, Vermont, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We are the “Keepers of the Eastern Door” of Turtle Island. We are carrying out our duties as the caretakers. The natural world has given us this responsibility by rooting us in this land.
For 500 years we have been resisting your colonial efforts to eliminate us and to impose your unnatural institutions on us. We wish to reinstate the lawful relationship with you once the inequities are remedied according to the principles of the Two Row Wampum Agreement.
As you have not responded to my request for evidence to substantiate your false claim to jurisdiction over us, we find you guilty of genocide, violations of our freedom and our inherent right to self-determination, of theft of our lands and resources and of destruction of our environment. You have allowed your subjects and your corporations to inflict ruthless violence on us. According to Section 109 of the British North America Act, 1867, you are under an obligation to consider the “prior interest”, which is the “Indian” interest in all of your endeavors on our land and resources. We know that the bottom line of any corporation is profit. This includes collection of taxes, exploitation of our land, water, natural and mineral resources and all business your minions have conducted.
You are hereby ordered to immediately relinquish all your stolen money, trust, lands, rights and possessions that were made or taken from our lands within 90 days. You must disband all your foreign corporations such as “Indian Affairs” and forfeit all foreign laws, particularly the “Indian Act”. We shall return to the original legal nation-to-nation relationship between us, the land owners and you, our visitors. You are to deposit $1.4 trillion GDP for the year 2006 into an Indigenous Trust which we, the Indigenous people, will collectively own and control. This money was created totally from your exploitation of us, our land and our resources. This payment represents your corporations’ foreign debt payment to the Indigenous people of Turtle Island.
Signed on this 18th day of December 2006 in the community of Akwesasne on the territory of the Kanion’ke:haka,
Katenies [aka Janet Davis] /s/ _____________
Women Title Holders of the Kanion’ke:haka of the Rotinonhsonnion:we: according to Wampum 44 of our law, the Kaianereh’ko:wa, the women are the “progenitors” of the soil of Turtle Island. The women are the caretakers of the land, water and air of Turtle Island. As the trustees the women are obligated to preserve and protect the land’s integrity for the future generations.
