A delegation of Mohawks has arrived in Venezuela to meet with President Hugo Chavez and Venezuela's Indigenous Peoples, joining forces to fight colonial oppression.
In a bold move surely to attract the outrage of the colonial governments of the United States and Canada, Mohawks are joining President Chavez and 40 Indigenous nations of Venezuela, from August 7 to 9, 2007.
This bold action by the Mohawks is being carried out by two women, Kahentinetha, an elder, and Karenhahes, Bear Clan Mother.
"This congress is setting up a broad international movement of indigenous people to reject colonial oppression," said Kahentinetha Horn, publisher of Mohawk Nation News.
The meeting in Venezuela will take place in Mapiricure, an indigenous community in the south. On August 9th President Hugo Chavez will be presented with the Indigenous Feather known as the “Penacho” and a headdress.
