While First Nations group councils have been enacting and enforcing reserve laws across the country for decades, these statutes are bound either by the Indian Act or by an autonomy agreement with the federal government. As director/coordinator of Entewatatha:wi, I am responsible for developing self-management agreements that define a new government for government relations with Canada. These agreements will be ratified by Akwesaronon and the Canadian Parliament and will create increased jurisdiction and authority for the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne in the provision of programs and services to the Community. Between the Treaty of Paris of 1783 and the Jay Treaty of 1795 until the Treaty of Gant in 1812, the United States and Great Britain signed a series of agreements that defined part of the current border between Canada and the United States. These agreements ultimately had the effect of dividing the municipality of Akwesasne beyond the limits of the jurisdiction. Also included in the Jay Treaty, and then reaffirmed in the Treaty of Gant, is the recognition of the right of indigenous peoples to freely cross the border. But while the United States recognizes the Jay Treaty, that is not the case in Canada. However, the inhabitants of Akwesasne have been granted a waiver as part of the current closure of the border, provided they identify with their Indian status card at the border. The majority of Akwesaronn have Indian status, which means they can continue to cross the international border that crosses their territory during this pandemic. However, those who do not have a status card are stuck in the part of the area where they live.

The Department of Justice of the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne has only about 17 employees. But these 17 people cover a huge offer. His lawyer and subsidiary bodies provide legal assistance to Members of the Community and the Band on all legal matters; they have probation and probation services, as well as an early release program for community members in both Ontario and Quebec; and they run the conservation and compliance offices. They are also developing new laws, conducting local elections and referendums, and are currently negotiating with Canada for a final autonomy agreement.
