  • A Statement from Ronald Jones Sr. about the Banishment of him and his Wife Ruth Jones 1985. Context: Ronald Jones Sr. and his wife Ruth Jonesowned the land where the 1997 I-81 Indian Detail attacks took place. The husband and wife were banished from their home at Onondaga Nation by Chief Lean Shenandoah and Oren Lyons. The banishment was widely opposed and is proven to be in direct violation of the Great Law, Clan Laws, and Longhouse and in direct conflict with traditional Haudenosaunee ways. Ronald Jones Sr. was later murdered in what is widely understood to be retaliation for speaking out about corruption at Onondaga and involvement of Onondaga Chiefs in the 97' attacks.
