Am I the only one having difficulties with this particular aspect of the project ? If the previous state of relationship between the Mohawks and us is any indication, we're looking for trouble here and this part of the project might be more difficult to deal with than any other !!!
The new bridge will cross part of Nuns' Island that features several archeological sites, including the farm of 17th-century merchant and seigneur Jacques Le Ber and a pre-historic Amerindian site. The nature of the latter "is delicate: the burial site of an Amerindian child was found here, conferring a sacred status to this ground for Kahnawake Mohawks,"
the pre-feasibility study said. Bridge plans will have to be approved by
Quebec's culture department, the city of Montreal and the Mohawk community
What if the Mohawks decide the case of preservation of the burial ground is not negociable ? What if we ("we" = the "Pale Faces") don't treat this file with due respect ? I'm seeing here a potential new crisis between our two communities !!!
