Paging Nathaniel Hawthorne

Calgary Herald – If the Mohawk community of Kahnawake wanted a way to end up on the six o’clock news, attempts to evict 26 non-natives from their reserve was the perfect way to do it. As most readers now know, those not meeting the Kahnawake reserve’s community membership code — many are involved in romantic relationships with Mohawks and some are longtime caregivers for resident members — were given 10 days to leave last month.

As of today, only 12 of the 26 have responded. Now the band council says they will post the names of those who have not left if they fail to meet this deadline.
