Mass genocide of Mohawks uncovered in Canada; allegedly ground penetrating radar reveals hundreds of Indian children buried around former Mohawk Institute School

In a story that is almost too horrific to believe, what looks to be a childrens' mass burial ground has allegedly been discovered around the Mohawk Institute Indian residential school near Brantford, Ontario, Canada.   This subject is very controversial, as is the person represented in it.  We have been very careful to present both sides to the issue and let you decide.  First, the story:


The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State continues:

"According to Rev. Kevin Annett, Secretary of the International Tribunal for Crimes of Church and States (www.itccs.org), the Mohawk Institute was “set up by the Anglican Church of England in 1832 to imprison and destroy generations of Mohawk children. This very first Indian [First Nations] residential school in Canada lasted until 1970, and, like in most residential schools, more than half of the children imprisoned there never returned. Many of them are buried all around the school.”

Preliminary scanning by ground penetrating radar adjacent to the now closed main building Mohawk Institute has revealed that “between 15-20 feet of soil” was brought in and put over the mass graves just before the Mohawk Institute closed in 1970 in order to camouflage the mass graves of Mohawk Children and avoid prosecution for genocide and crimes against humanity under the Geneva Conventions, the International Criminal Court, and cooperating national courts.

International Tribunal for Crimes of Church and States (ITCCS.org) is expected to commence judicial proceedings starting in late October 2011 in Brussels, Belgium and Dublin, Ireland for child genocide crimes against humanity against defendants Elizabeth Windsor, head of state of Canada and head of the Church of England and Pope Joseph Ratzinger, both of whom knowingly participated in the planning and coverup of the child genocide, according to forensic evidence.

The Tribunal sessions were originally to have been held in London, U.K. However, The U.K. government has denied entrance to the Secretary and major jurists and staff of the International Tribunal for Crimes of Church and States (ITCCS.org) without cause.

The discovery of the mass graves of Mohawk children, uncovered by ground-penetrating radar at the Mohawk Institute comes on the heels of videotaped evidence by eyewitness William Coombes, who in Oct. 1964 witnessed Elizabeth Windsor, as Head of State of Canada and Head of the Church of England, visit an aboriginal school in Kamloops, British Columbia, choose 10 young aboriginal children, made them kiss her feet, and allegedly took them from the school for a picnic at a lake.

The 10 aboriginal children were never seen again. Mr. Coombes, who was to give evidence at the International Tribunal for Crimes of Church and States (ITCCS.org) of Elizabeth Windsor’s child genocide, was murdered in Feb. 2011. Fortunately, Mr. Coombes’ testimony was videotaped before his death and is available for the Tribunal.

Rev. Kevin Annett states that instruments of torture such as a rack for torturing the Mohawk children in ritual torture have been found at the now closed Mohawk Institute. Eyewitnesses from the Mohawk community have stated they witnessed priests in red robes torturing children in ritual torture.

Rev. Annett made these revelations in an exclusive Oct. 7, 2011 interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre. In the interview, Rev. Annett acknowledges the close parallels between the Oct. 1964 personal child genocide and possible ritual killings of 10 aboriginal children by Elizabeth Windsor, Head of State of Canada and Head of the Church of England, and the child genocides occurring during the same period at the Mohawk Institute.

These parallels suggest that Elizabeth Windsor, as Head of State and Head of the Church of England was personally aware of, ordered, and participated in this systematic program of genocide and ritual torture and killings at Church of England residential schools operated by the Church of England and the Vatican."

In his interview, Rev. Annett stated that the mainstream Canadian media, as well as the government of Canada, are maintaining a coverup and media blackout of the discoveries of Mohawk child genocide at the Mohawk Institute.  Here is an interview with Reverend Annett. It was cut off 5 times and subjected to technical interference presumably by the state.

Rev. Kevin Annett says that for the first time in Canadian history graves are being opened at an Indian reservation school. Massive loads of soil were dumped on the graves to cover up the genocide.   Bone fragments have been discovered, and are under analysis.  Reverend Annett has been adopted into the Mohawk tribe according to itccs.org:

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”.

Over 50,000 Mohawk children who went into these schools, from strategic points in Canada died or disappeared and were never heard from again between 1832 and 1996 when the last school was closed.

Here is an interview with Reverend Kevin Annett further describing the mass murder and excavation work going on at the Mohawk Institute.  Annett's site "Hidden from History" documents live witness testimony of experimentation, and sterilization, torture and murder of children in these boarding schools.

Like with every story, there are two sides.  Turtle Island News reports the other side of the story, including that Annett is using a psychic to assist him in digging up the grounds outside the school.  This story represents the skepticism surrounding Rev. Annett and his methodology:

He has been unable to convince any authority or First Nations in B.C. of his claims. It’s the first time it’s gone this far where we’ve begun digs and done the forensic,” said Annett in an interview. He said he has gone to other residential schools and `scanned with ground penetrating radar. He said his team found “a lot of sink holes” around a former residential school in Port Alberni, B.C.. that he claimed were characteristic of mass graves “that tend to sink in the ground.” His findings were not investigated by the RCMP. Annett said he contacted the RCMP who refused to investigate. Annett approached the Mohawks at Kanata and convinced them to undertake an investigation. “The elders here decided right from the start that they were going to operate under their own jurisdiction. If the Mounties came in, they’re just going to say no you don’t have jurisdiction here. This is our crime investigation.” He said the Six Nations Men’s Fire would enforce that jurisdiction. Annett said he will take his findings from the investigation at Kanata and the Woodland Cultural Centre and file “a report with the tribunal he has yet to establish in Brussels. Armed with the Six Nations information, he said he would then look at “possible criminal charges against Canada and its churchs. The tribunal Annett refers to is an organization of he created and appears to include just two unnamed man. Annett’s website says the purpose of his tribunal is “To bring to trial those persons and institutions responsible for the exploitation, torture and murder of children, past and present, and To stop these and other criminal actions by church and state.” Annett said the investigation began September 28 with a psychic he brought from B.C..

The Brantford Expositor so far has been the only reputable news source to come out with the story. They too are skeptical about what will be found out there:

There are investigators looking for bodies on the property of the Mohawk Cultural Centre, but it's still business as usual for the centre and the adjacent museum.

The centre sent notification out Wednesday that it remains open despite the fact a group is on the property using ground penetrating radar equipment to try and find old gravesites.

"We're still open to the public," said Janis Monture, Woodland's executive director.

Monture said the centre isn't involved or participating in the activities on its grounds.

"We were getting emails sent to us from various people and at least one website said the main building was closed but it's not true. We're open to the public and it's business as usual."

The group on the grounds has received approval from some elders from the Mohawk Nation.

Kevin Annett, a former United Church minister who has become an activist demanding accountability about children who died at Canada's residential schools, is leading it.

Annett said he has collected stories from those who lived in the Mohawk Institute, which is now the Woodland Cultural Centre, which demonstrate there were children illegally buried on the grounds.


This story says nothing about Annett bringing a psychic out, but contends business as usual will go on in the museum. Time will tell and truth will out, for skeptics and believers alike.

    Wow, the first time I read this I was stunned… I still am, but I'm a bit more skeptical now. If this was really true, I can't believe that some major news organization hasn't picked it up. This is being presented in the same way most major conspiracy theories are…. shanty evidence, few sources, huge accusations… I'm skeptical. I see no reason to believe if the story was convincing, that international news organizations wouldn't investigate.

  • The crimes of the Anglican Church towards the American Indians in Canada has been going on for a while now. I posted something about it a few months ago and I might be able to find it again on the Canadian Anglican Website. I know I see it every now again, because I still get their e-newsletters.

    BTW, I posted that link above because by the Church's own admission they, as they tone it down some, "hurt" the American Indians. In reality they did a lot more than just "hurt" them, but at least they admit they did some damage.

  • Artiewhitefox

    The human who did that to those children will have his reward,and he will not like it,but it will be what he deserves,and ironically asked for. A human like that has no consent of the consequences of his actions. No human could ever render the judgment Gods light will dish out to such a man. Can a man like this truly repent?

    • Wit

      Yeah, that belief may make you feel righteous, justified or at least able to sleep at night but it's a far cry from reality. The facts are those that committed these crimes, if they were not punished before their own deaths, got away with heinous acts of inhumanity. There is no 'god' and no 'judgement' after we die. There is life, what we do with it while we are alive and then simply death when our time is finished. Ask yourself this – if there was some god to intervene and stop this slaughter of innocents but couldn't, or worse, wouldn't – why worship it or even call it a god? The Anglicans out of worship for their god felt justified in what they did torturing and murdering, in their view, 'heathen' Native American children. Good luck sleeping at night laying the responsibility for justice at the feet of a being that doesn't exist, the coward and the fools way out is easy but solves nothing. The world will never heal these divisions until god beliefs are dead and buried in the past.

      • Very well said. Very brief and to the point. Religious folks won't take KNOW for an answer.
        Keep up the work.

    • It was more than one human. It was a whole church who did it. Actually, the Episcopal Church is not the only church that did things like this. Many churches did things like this and it's gone on for centuries. Thus, one needs to look deeply into their own church history. Christians and Muslims have done things like this throughout history. So that means, whole churches will pay for such things for a very long time to come and the effects of it are just starting because people are starting to wake up and see the Patriarchal control that has been over them for centuries. The Church is dying and THAT is the cost of things like this and more.

    Tim is on the right track in refusing to buy into what seems at first blush a horrific story. The similarities between this account and other conspiracy theories are no accident. Kevin Annett and his followers have a long, sad history of exploiting the very real suffering caused by residential schools. Trumped up claims, "eyewitness" reports from people so obviously damaged and exploited you'd look like a heartless bastard for contradicting them, non-existent "Tribunals", and outright fabrication are the tools of his trade. He's a bit of genius at this really. That last sentence will no doubt find its way, slightly redacted, on to one of his websites. He needs help, not a soapbox, but he is accomplished at getting the latter, at least for a while, until his claims are tested. Then he moves on. I encourage all who read the above to keep their critical edge fully engaged, Google widely on him and the purported organizations he claims to represent, and to hold this man in your prayers, if that's your bag. He and the people he has taken in along the way surely need it, probably as much as the real survivors of the residential schools. My last word is to quote a native leader in Vancouver, BC I worked with regarding Mr. Annett a few years ago, "He goes after the most vulnerable, the most damaged; that's the only way he can do what he does."

    • We'd love to see proof either way, Tim and Baz. Show us.

    • Interesting. Maybe Annett is or isn't being honest, but Reservation life is difficult and not to mention, I took a few Native American history classes at the Uni I attended and from what I learned those Carlisle Schools are a horror. They even beat the children for speaking their native language, among others things. Many often did die at Carlisle schools.

      Not to mention "The Friends of the Indians" were no true friends and the Dept of Indian Affairs did many things to harm the American Indians. Let's not forget those blankets tainted with Smallpox in an effort to exterminate the American Indians.

      All of that is just for starters and when you throw in the Anglican Church's own admission that they did harm the American Indians… Well, I seriously doubt there is much conspiracy to this story. The European-Americans, esp those involved with a church were brutal and have attempted to commit genocide against the American Indians. Take an American Indian class or two or three, and will find that "the religious White man" is barbarically horrendous towards the American Indians.

  • Baz

    You can't really "prove" the non-existence of something. This is what makes most conspiracy theories impossible to refute conclusively. I think a better question is the skeptical one–is there any independent, testable evidence for the claims Mr. Annett has made? The answer repeatedly has been 'no', though there are lots of grand-sounding plans and promises, but nothing a reasonable person would call proof. However, today and every day the more prosaic suffering –fetal alcohol syndrome, the disappearance of women on (formerly, but who knows?) the DTES, (now) the highway of tears, institutional racism, endemic poverty in native communities –continues across our country, but we are distracted by this kind of self-aggrandizing and credibility-destroying nonsense. My hold on the concept of sin is shaky these days, but I'm pretty sure this is getting close. Show me the money, Mr. Annett, cuz I've got work to do, as do we all.

    • Gene Martin

      @ BAZ: Regardless of the controversy surrounding Rev. Annett (proven or not) i can assure you this is a very real and scary issue. I am from the Six Nations reservation and this entire community has been greatly affected by the Mohawk Institute. The fact that you even doubt this shows that the Canadian government has succeeded in burying the REAL history of the attempted genocide against the idigenous people of Canada. I say attempted genocide because in this 500 year old war our spirits haven't been broken yet. And they never will be

      • Yes, and as I pointed out the U.S. hasn't done much better. I'm really surprised the Anglican/Episcopal Church has admitted their part in doing harm, but the thing is, they aren't doing much better. A whole culture was destroyed just by the Church coming in and demanding conversion. Most of us don't even know our American Indian ancestry because we told it was OK to discuss it in the home, but outside the home we are White. Most of us don't even know much about connection we have to the Earth, but we feel it strongly, despite not know that side of our cultural ancestry.

        Sorry. I'm going on my own little rant now, but it saddens me that I and others don't know a thing about it because Europeans came in and destroyed it, even killed many who could have told us about it.

    • If you are doubtful all you need to do is talk to a Residential school survivor, and they will tell you what they saw with their own eyes. The possibility that all of these survivors, across North America are fabricating a tall tale is highly unlikely. The church and the governement are terrified to destroy their reputations, however we know the have not been honourable or truthfull in the past. If you don't understand and you are unsure than you don't understand or know the Indigenous people of this land. Thinking of all my relatives, Miigwetch

    • Baz, why do you thing the Res is so bad with Alcoholism? Part of it is because they were forced to live there and live in poverty. The Sioux (Lakota, Dakota, and another) were given the Bad Lands. There's nothing there AND to top it off, I went through Arizona and New Mexico. It's been destroyed by Fracking and an Apache elderly woman confirmed what I saw. It's bad. There's nothing there and the successful young men and women leave the Res to get an education, only to return to help their people after they get an education. Still, they aren't paid as much if they stayed off the Res. I suspect it's not much different in Canada. People one the Res have been killed by our gov. when they howler about the nuclear waste. Cancer on the Res is higher than anywhere else because the U.S. Gov deposes nuclear waste there or has in the past at least.

      I could go on and on, but churches and governments have not been very good to the American Indians.

  • Baz

    The fact that I doubt the claims in the particular story above (and only that — not the horror of residential schools, or a host of other things) only means that I require evidence for what I believe. I spend much of my days doubting what the Canadian government says for a living, so I have no love for them as an inviolable source of truth. It does not mean that I doubt what really happened was horrendous, but my point is that it was and is bad enough without resorting to fantastic embellishment, fake tribunals and the lot. We owe ourselves and all our ancestors the honour of discovering the truth. Sometimes (usually I would hope) that means being skeptical. It also hurts credibility in the community at large to claim highly improbable things without proof. I have an uglier truth than the one KA is selling you: the tragedy is not the "conspiracy" here, "hidden from history", the tragedy was that there was NO conspiracy to STOP the residential schools, and there should have been one long before the schools were finally extirminated. No mass murder, mass graves, no mysterious visits from Mrs. Windsor, no ovens were required to steal generations. That's the part that keeps me up nights, because it's still going on. We need to conspire to stop that, not fly off on wild goose-chases. Kevin Annett gets marginalized because he can't back up what he claims, not because he's some lost prophet. Stand up. Demand proof. Stay in truth. Until you do, he is just another white guy dicking you over, and basking in the reflected glory of your suffering–that's the last thing the world needs.

    • Gene Martin

      At no point did i say i believe a word Kevin Annett says. I have absolutely no idea who he is and don't care. You certainly seem to dislike him but i am not on here to dispute his facts. Yes he claims there are mass graves found but no actual digging has been done. I don't care what his claims are because the voices of the Six Nations community is what I am here to convey. Long before Kevin Annett stuck his nose into the subject many people of the commnunity believed children had died at the Mohawk Institute. No one knows if it is to the extent of mass graves but that is not the point. The point is that someone is actually making some noise on the subject. At least this is a step to get the evidence that we need. Annett's number on how many children died is likely embellishment (he claims 50000) but the fact that some did die is not. I don't doubt that Rev. Annett may be an exploiter but at the very least, non-native people are asking questions about this now. There is even a story in the Brantford city paper. http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=3331577 . So far this is the only reputable news source to even touch the subject.

      • Agree, Gene, he might be embellishing a little, but the fact is, as you even said, children did die at such schools.

    • What part is it you don't want to believe, Baz? That the Church could do something like that? Like I said, take a few courses in Native American Studies at your local Uni and not some Xian college.

  • Baz

    I sincerely hope that the net result of this is positive, and that the price of the attention is not too high. Out of evil cometh good. Or so we hope. Healing of the body, the world, the soul, they all depend on truth. All the best.

    • Now that I can agree with. The truth is coming out, but it is coming out very slowly.

  • Dale

    The govenor of South Dakota (United States) has limited the staute of limitations to less than ten year on Catholic sex abuse of Native children who were in these boarding schools.

    • Baz

      What's their excuse for that? I understand the need to protect the integrity of due process, and I sure don't like lynching, but many cases have been sucessfully and fairly prosecuted way beyond ten years–I was an expert witness in one in Ontario a few years back. That is a disgrace.

  • fran

    i have no time for people who give titles to themselves but will let this one go,you can't imagine what they done to the heads of the tribes children in the 1940-1950 here in england and what they went through it was not gods discussion it was the tors and there cohorts
    that brutilized them and everyone in england at that time could only think of themselves all the churches faiths knew and known what was going on, and it saddens me to know this they are in boxes now and will never get out they deafend thier ears now gods children are deaf to them.god bless

  • Difficult to conceive the consequences of a possible confirmed crimes…and may be their non very convenient truths to be solved in the public arena.
    Besides…..this led back to the movie Matrix…and all the connected ones.
    God preserve HImself !!!
