MCK offers condolences for former Council Chief


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) would like to offer its condolences to the friends and family of Doris Mayo White, who passed away this past weekend at her home in Kahnawà:ke. She was 87 years old.

Mrs. White was very much an influential member of the community. She was a community activist and long-time volunteer.

She was elected to the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke in 1978, serving a two-year term as a Council Chief. She never shied away from speaking her mind on the issues and was politically active for many years. She was also a strong advocate for the Mohawk Language.

“It seems that everyone in Kahnawà:ke knew Doris,” said Grand Chief Michael Ahríhrhon Delisle, Jr. ”She was as selfless an individual as I’ve ever known. She will truly be missed.”

She was predeceased by her husband Norman and is survived by her eight children, her brother Alec, nineteen grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and many relatives and friends.

Visitation is at the Poissant & Deer Funeral Home. Funeral service will be at 2:30pm on Tuesday, 9 Kentenhkó:wa/November.
