Youth advisory group for Prime Minister visits Kahnawake


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to inform the community that the Prime Minister’s Youth Council, a group of 26 young people from across the country who provide non-partisan advice to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, are visiting the community and will meet this evening at the Kanien’kehá:ka Onkwawén:na Raotitióhkwa Language & Cultural Center.

Several Kahnawà:ke youth have been invited to attend the event, which will feature a two-hour discussion on the following questions:

  • What do you love about your community?
  • What inspires you to be a youth leader?
  • What do you think of when you think of about reconciliation?
  • How do you think Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth can collaborate to advance reconciliation?
  • What do non-Indigenous youth need to know about your lived-experience?
“This should be a good opportunity for some of our younger people to interact with a group that has direct contact with the Prime Minister,” Ietsénhaienhs Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer, who holds the Language & Culture Portfolio for the MCK. “We look forward to sharing thoughts, ideas and experiences.”

Ietsénhaienhs Sky-Deer will be present for the event, which takes place from 7 to 9pm.

The Youth Council includes members from every corner of the country and ethnic background. There are several Indigenous representatives on the Council.
