Canada to offer settlement for Mohawk claim

The Canadian government plans to offer $26 million to settle a Mohawk land claim in Ontario.

The money would compensate the Six Nations for the flooding of about 2400 acres. It applies only to one claim in the town of Caledonia, where Mohawk protesters have been occupying a housing site since February 2006.

Canada previously made a $125 million offer to settle a variety of claims. Six Nations leaders rejected the proposal.
