The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke (MCK) wishes to inform the community that Kahnawa�kehr�:non who are known to be in Las Vegas have been accounted for and are safe in the aftermath of a mass shooting on Sunday, October 1st.

Other Kahnaw�kehr�:non are also in Las Vegas at this time and so far, the MCK has received several reports from family members that they are also safe and sound.

�What happened in Las Vegas is unimaginable,� said Iets�nhaienhs Rhonda Kirby. �At this time, all the people from Kahnaw�:ke have checked in to report they are safe and sound. We can only imagine the horror that they felt. Our thoughts and prayers are with them, and everyone who was affected by this senseless tragedy.�
