MCK assists community owned radio station


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) announced that it has joined Tewatohnhisaktha in supporting the building of a new facility that will house both the community-owned K103 Radio Station and the MCK Language & Culture Training Center.

The MCK will contribute $430,000 towards the construction of the building. $100,000 of that comes from the “Proceeds of Crime” initiative (Funds seized from criminal activities). $330,000 was taken from the Community Facilities Appropriated Reserves, which is set aside specifically for community-owned facilities. $130,000 of this total amount was a loan to K103 from the MCK. None of the MCK’s financial contribution will be taken from existing or future services, or Contingency Reserves set aside for Community Emergencies.

K103 needed to raise a total of $680,000 to match the monies being provided by the Aboriginal Initiatives Fund. The remaining $250,000 has been provided courtesy of Tewatohnhisaktha.

“K103 has been invaluable to the community,” said Grand Chief Michael Ahríhrhon Delisle, Jr. “They are the first responder during emergencies, in regards to getting information out to the entire community - as they did in 1990 and during the Ice Storm.”
