A new item has been added to the agenda for tonight’s Fall Community Meeting in Kahnawake. The Mohawk Council of Kahnawake (MCK) says the item will be the course of action being taken by the MCK to address Canada’s S-3 amendments to the Indian Act. That act is expected to result in perhaps as many as 35 000 people considered “Status Indians’ being added to the list of registered Mohawks on the federal list.
Kahsennenhawe Sky Deer is the MCK Chief in charge of the membership portfolio.
“Things are coming to a head because we are seeing people being registerd to our community and it’s important for us to educate the community on what this means and what this could mean for us in the future moving forward. So at tonight’s community meeting there will be a presentation. We will be announcing some things that are going to be happening in the next little while. It’s very important, as mentioned previous, we tried to educate not only the Iroquois Caucus leadership but the Mohawk Nation about what’s coming, and it’s here.”
Also on the agenda: Land Allotments, Tioweró:ton and Cannabis. The meeting begins at 7 pm at the Golden Age Club.
