The Kahnawake police force, known as the Kahnawake Mohawk Peacekeepers, told CBC News they had seized about 100 fake cards from CAPC members attempting to score tax breaks on purchases ranging from appliances to vehicles.

CAPC is not recognized by the federal government or recognized by any Indigenous group or community as as legitimate representative political organization.

The organization, which is headed by Guillaume Carle, requires prospective members to undergo DNA tests conducted by Toronto firm Viaguard Accu-Metrics to determine their Indigenous ancestry before admittance.

Two former members of the organization became suspicious of the veracity of the results and separately submitted DNA samples from their dogs to Viaguard. Both results returned positive for Indigenous ancestry. Viaguard said in a statement to CBC News the samples were likely cross-contaminated with human DNA.

CBC News submitted DNA samples to Viaguard from three of its employees, two born in India and one born in Russia, and sent them to the company for testing. All three came back indicating they had 20 per cent Indigenous ancestry.

CBC News also submitted DNA samples from the same three employees to 23andMe, a large consumer DNA testing firm.

The results came back with zero Indigenous ancestry for all the employees tested.
