Tammy Whitebean recipient of Lori Niioiéren Jacobs Memorial Recognition Award


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke, K1037 Radio, Mohawk Online and the Kahnawà:ke Gaming Commission are pleased to announce that Tammy Whitebean has been selected as the recipient of the 2020 Lori Niioié: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 Kahnawà:ke. It was created to honor the late Lori Niioié:ren Jacobs – a strong, independent and remarkable Kanien’kehá: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 Kahnawà:ke with his/her involvement in the type of activities that were integral to Lori’s life.
