MCK congratulates Ietsénhaienhs Christine Zachary-Deom regarding City of Montreal honors


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to congratulate Ietsénhaienhs Christine Zachary-Deom for the special recognition she received on Wednesday by Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre.

Mayor Coderre announced that Ietsénhaienhs Zachary-Deom was made an Honorary Citizen of Montreal. She was presented with the 'Key to the City' at a reception at City Hall.

"On behalf of Chief & Council, I’d like to offer congratulations to Christine on the honor bestowed upon her by Mayor Coderre," said Grand Chief Joseph Tokwiro Norton. "She has worked tirelessly and with great dedication in creating a better relationship with the city, especially in being part of the group who designed the new City of Montreal flag. She has brought honor and pride to the community, all in the spirit of reconciliation."

"I was pleased to participate in some of the events that took place," he continued. "There is no doubt that Mayor Coderre has a genuine friendship with Christine. His gesture showed the appreciation and great respect he has for her work."

Ietsénhaienhs Zachary-Deom was named as part of the group to design the new flag in 2016. It was unveiled and raised in an early morning ceremony on Wednesday morning at Place Vauquelin in Old Montreal. The new flag has the Tree of Peace symbol included in its center.
