Mar 7/98: NY military plans for Onondaga-Gallant Piper


'Gallant Piper' For Use Against Indigenous Peoples

Mohawk Nation News
Saturday, March 7, 1998

Gallant Piper, a New York State military operation, is still in effect. This communique reminds us, our allies, friends, supporters, the general public and the world that New York State planned to attack the Iroquois and other New York State Indigenous territories in 1995-96-97 and 98. It is still in effect and if any resistance had been enountered on Onondaga Territory on March 2nd 1998, then New York State Governor George Pataki would most likely have called them in to take over the territories and remove the sovereign governments.

Videos and photos of Oren Lyons conducting the attack on the business men, the burning and demolishing of the shops are available. Contact and
