  • U.S./Canada close bridges/border station through Mohawk lands

    By Christine Graef
    Akwesasne Mohawk Territory (NFIC)

    The bridge from the United States into Canada through Akwesasne territory was closed at midnight, June 1 after border officers voluntarily vacated their posts. Canada Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan said the border will remain closed until the Mohawk accept the arming of Canada Border Service agents with Beretta PX4 Storm 9 mm pistols.

    On the last day of May, leaders of the three councils of Akwesasne – The Mohawk Council of Chiefs, St. Regis Tribal Council and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne – met to decide how to respond to the arming of the border crossing on their reserve.
