Kenitsénhaienhs Sky-Deer, Kirby join women chiefs for Bennett meeting


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke wishes to inform the community that Nitsénhaiehns Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer and Rhonda Kirby will join other women chiefs from across the country on Monday (30, Onerahtókha/April) to participate in a meeting on Recognition and Implementation of Indigenous Rights with Carolyn Bennett, the Minister of Crown - Indigenous Relations & Northern Affairs.

The event will take place the day before the Assembly of First Nations Special Chiefs’ Assembly, which takes place next Tuesday and Wednesday in Gatineau (Ottawa).

“As Canada moves towards establishing an Indigenous Rights Framework under the Canadian Constitution, it is important for us to get a better understanding of their intent in moving in this direction,” said Ietsénhaienhs Sky-Deer. “We need to put them on notice about our constitution as Iroquoian people, so that it helps to inform them on a unique Nation perspective as they move forward with this process across Canada.”
