Tammy Whitebean recipient of Lori Niioi�ren Jacobs Memorial Recognition Award


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke, K1037 Radio, Mohawk Online and the Kahnaw�:ke Gaming Commission are pleased to announce that Tammy Whitebean has been selected as the recipient of the 2020 Lori Niioi�:ren Jacobs Memorial Recognition Award.

�Tammy has been a volunteer for many years and is well-known for her efforts throughout the community,� said Gina Deer, the Chairperson of the Committee that oversees the Award. �She has volunteered at the Fire Hall, numerous fundraisers, and delivered much-needed supplies to those in need. She epitomizes the type of person who helps make our town better. Though people know her � and the effort she makes � she does so quietly, effectively and without fanfare. She volunteers because she loves to help and make a positive contribution.�

Due to the pandemic, the presentation of the Award will take place at a later date.

The Award is presented annually to a member of the community who exemplifies qualities of dedication, perseverance, and volunteerism that contribute positively to the betterment of Kahnaw�:ke. It was created to honor the late Lori Niioi�:ren Jacobs � a strong, independent and remarkable Kanien�keh�:ka woman who was well-known for her involvement in numerous activities, causes, boards of directors, commissions and organizations � as well as her incredible work ethic. Lori volunteered and worked tirelessly throughout her life to make her community a better place. She passed away on April 21st, 2016.

The Award is accompanied by a $1000 bursary. It is presented to an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to Kahnaw�:ke with his/her involvement in the type of activities that were integral to Lori�s life.
