Special Community Meeting on Membership and Residency set for October 12th


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to advise community members that a Special Community Meeting on the issue of Membership & Residency has been scheduled for Wednesday, 12 Kenténha/October 2016.

The agenda will include an update on the progress of the proposed amendments to the Kahnawà:ke Membership Law; the necessity for a residency law and; an update on the Letters on Non-Entitlement and potential next steps. This will be followed by an open discussion on all matters relating to Membership & Residency.

“A great deal has happened since the last time we held a Community Meeting specifically on these issues,” said Ietsénhaienhs Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer, who holds the Membership Portfolio. “We want to be certain that Chief & Council are maintaining the direction that the community wants. While some of the issues have been ongoing, other developments such as upcoming amendments to the Indian Act due to the Descheneaux Decision have the potential to cause us additional challenges. These will be explained on October 12th.”

The meeting will begin at 7pm sharp at the Legion Hall. Please be advised that only those community members who appear on the Kahnawà:ke Kanien’kehá:ka Registry are eligible to attend this meeting.
