Scope and content

Fonds consists of 16 folders containing 89 files in total, a few of which are in two parts. Files deal with the organization, methods of operation and approach of the 1 Canadian Division Intelligence Company and the 5 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group during the Oka crisis. Fonds contains post-operation reports, conference minutes and operation instructions for Operation Salon. A wide range of intelligence collected from Kahnawake, Oka and the Warrior Society in the early 1990s is also included. It is comprised of reconnaissance (the geography of the area, layout of buildings and other structures, and resources available to the Warriors to resist the military) and the personalities, aims and activities of the influential members of the Mohawk community, as well as some non-natives who took the Warrior side. Fonds also contains a book on traditional Native Teachings from 1984, the 1916 Constitution of the Iroquois, and background information regarding plans, proposals, RCMP logs and other memoranda, as well as legal and quasi-legal documents from the Six Nations, the Assembly of First Nations and the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation in the 1780s.

General note

The files arrived with a considerable amount of organization and their original order and file names have been kept. However, in a few places some correspondence appears out of sequence, the first volume of a block of material frequently appearing after the second, and so forth. Some of these problems are noted in the finding aid.
