MCK issues update statement on Education issues


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) is issuing a statement to the community outlining many of the reasons for its decision to temporarily suspend the authority of the Kahnawake Combined Schools Committee and the Constitution.

The three page statement (attached), signed by Grand Chief Michael Ahríhron Delisle, Jr. on behalf of the MCK, also includes a response to the aggressive tone of the “Proclamation’ document that was published in last week’s Eastern Door newspaper in which direct threats were made against Education Center staff and the MCK. This type of behavior is contrary to our way of resolving disputes and is unacceptable.
The MCK has authorized an Interim Board of Trustees to work towards addressing and correcting problems related to the Constitution. One of the biggest problems facing the parents is the confusion caused by having several different Constitution documents circulating.  The Interim Board of Trustees, which consists of Rheena Skye-Diabo, Franklin Williams, the three school principals and special advisor (and former Director of Education) Mike Diabo, will be consulting with the parents and community to update the Constitution in a manner that addresses today’s needs while reflecting and respecting the intent of the original Constitution. 

Once that is completed, Education will once again be administered using a properly ratified Constitution.
