NAT134 - (Mohawk-Marriage-Lawsuit) MONTREAL. x-14s. Several members of a Mohawk community south of Montreal are in Quebec Superior Court to challenge a membership rule that prevents non-Indigenous people from living on the territory. The rule states that anyone who marries a non-Indigenous person must move out of the Kahnawake (gah-nah-WAHG'-ee) Mohawk Territory. Joe Delaronde of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake says the policy is necessary to protect the community's culture and traditions. ("..can be overwhelming.") (SOURCE: The Canadian Press).

TAG: Delaronde says most people in the community are in favour of the policy. But the plaintiffs say the rules violate their rights and have created an atmosphere that makes it difficult to live in the community.
