On September 12, 2015, a Notice of Seizure was delivered to McGill University by Kahentinetha Horn of the Bear Clan, a member of the Kahnawake community. The notice outlined McGill’s use of Mohawk land that had never been sold by the Kahnawake community as well as the outstanding sum of $1.7 billion that McGill had borrowed from the Six Nations’ Trust Fund and had never repaid.

Also outlined in the notice was McGill’s violation of Kaia’nere:kowa, the Great Law of Peace that Kahentinetha abides by. The discovery of military research being conducted by McGill is explained by Kahentinetha as going in direct violation of her governing law, strong motivation in her decision to send the notice.

CKUT’s Victoria Xie spoke with Kahentinetha about the reasoning behind the notice as well as what she is hoping will happen in the future.
