CAYUGA — A First Nations activist arrested at a Caledonia building site last month is challenging a Cayuga court’s authority to try him on criminal charges, including counts of mischief, assaulting police and robbery.

Skyler Williams, 24, is among a number of Six Nations Haudenosaunee people currently before the courts who believe Canadian law doesn’t apply to them because they belong to a sovereign nation with its own laws and customs.
