MCK congratulates Kahnawake actress Kawenn�here Devery Jacobs on upcoming Emmy Awards appearance


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke wishes to congratulate Kawenn�here Devery Jacobs on her upcoming appearance on the prestigious Emmy Awards program this weekend. Her appearance as a presenter (either handing out trophies or making introductions) was announced by CBS and the Emmys organization on Monday. Her selection was in the �first wave� of 34 celebrities chosen to be presenters at the event, which traditionally has been viewed by millions around the world.

�This is pretty incredible,� said Oh�n:ton �:iente ne Ratits�nhaienhs (Grand Chief) Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer. �Kawenn�here�s career has taken her to places most of us can�t even fathom. She continues to be the source of great pride not only for her family and friends, but all of Kahnaw�:ke. On behalf of the community I�d like to congratulate her on this special honor. We�ll all be cheering you on, girl!�

Kawenn�here has won awards both as an actor and as a filmmaker. Her current projects are the Rutherford Falls, Reservation Dogs and the upcoming Bootlegger. She is among the group of young Kahnaw�:ke women actors and filmmakers who have made an impact on the national and international scene in the past several years, including Kanieht�:io Horn, Tracey Deer, Brittany LeBorgne, Heather White and Roxann Whitebean.
