Iets�nhaienhs Gina Deer attending Trade event in Arizona


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke (MCK) wishes to inform the community that Iets�nhaienhs Gina Deer is in Phoenix, Arizona as part of a delegation participating in a Trade event.

She is part of a Montreal-based group that includes representatives from Kahnaw�:ke and Akwesasne who are meeting with business and political representatives in the Phoenix region. Included on the itinerary are meetings with various Indigenous communities/leaders.

�We were approached by the City of Montreal to see if we were interested in working together to create opportunities that could benefit all parties,� stated Iets�nhaienhs Deer, who is the lead on the Economic Development Portfolio. �The organizers have taken an innovative and refreshing approach to this event. Part of the agenda includes meetings on new technology, and related law & policy development. Additionally, there will be visits to the Gila River Indian Community, the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.�

�Our commerce patterns have tended to be east/west in recent years,� she added. �It�s time we rise to the challenge of creating more north/south opportunities. We hope this gathering will be a step in that direction.�

Iets�nhaienhs Deer will return to the office on Thursday, May 2nd.
