The Kahnawà:ke Legislative Coordinating Commission (KLCC) wishes to advise the community of the results of last evening’s Second Hearing meeting for proposed amendments to the Kanien’kehá:ka of Kahnawà:ke Law (formerly known as the Kahnawà:ke Membership Law).

Five items of the nine-item agenda were completed in full. The definitions of Onkwehón:we, Onkwehón:we Lineage, Regulation, and Reside were approved by consensus, as were the sections on Registrar; Administrative Tribunal; Kahnawà:ke Kanien’kehá:ka Registry; and Review of Registrar Decision.

The definitions of Common-Law Relationship and Iah teionkwehónwe were deferred. Six of the nine clauses in the section on the Community Review Board were approved, with the remainder  expected to be completed at the next meeting.
