Sorry, Deseronto... aboriginals demand the Crown clear existing owners off the land....
Mohawk officials were told the government will not buy land from non-natives to ensure the Culbertson Tract -- a 923-acre parcel of land which the government agrees was never surrendered -- is returned to native control.Apparently, though... that's not good enough.
Instead, the government will offer money to allow the band to purchase tract properties if their owners willingly put them up for sale. The government is prepared to offer additional money as compensation for any land that can't ultimately be returned, Strahl said.
Get ready for Caledonia... Part II.
