Military to apologize for Mohawk inclusion in counter-insurgency manual
By Greg Horn
A 2006 draft version of the military’s counter-insurgency manual was released publicly in March 2007. This manual included a reference to the Mohawk Warrior Society in a section that described different types of insurgencies. The offensing section was entitled “Overview of Insurgencies and Counter-Insurgencies.”
Native people across Canada immediately decried the inclusion, saying it was comparing Native groups--such as the Mohawk Warrior Society--with terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and the Taliban.
