Mohawk chief's home in Que. burned in dispute
Wednesday, January 14, 2004

The home of the chief of the Kanesatake Mohawk First Nation in Quebec was burned down on Monday in a dispute over law enforcement on the reserve.

Chief James Gabriel said he received death threats for his tough-on-crime stance. He has vowed to stop the illegal sale of tobacco products, a lucrative business for tribal members. He signed a law enforcement agreement with the Quebec government and, on Monday, he fired the police chief who reportedly wasn't making arrests.

The actions prompted protest within the community. Some complained that Gabriel brought in police from other reserves. Negotiations have begun to try and resolve the crisis.
