MCK congratulates Kateri Champagne Jourdain, first Indigenous woman elected to Quebec National Assembly


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke wishes to congratulate Kateri Champagne Jourdain on her election in yesterday�s provincial election. She becomes the first Indigenous woman elected to the National Assembly.

Ms. Champagne Jourdain is from the Innu community of Uashat Mak Mani-Utenam. Representing the Coalition Avenir Quebec in the riding of Duplessis, she easily defeated the Parti Quebecois candidate � the PQ had held the riding for 40 years. She has stated publicly that her Innu culture will help her in her work with Indigenous communities.

�We wish her great success,� said Oh�n:ton �:iente ne Ratits�nhaienhs Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer. �We are confident that her heritage will be an asset to her and that, hopefully, as an Indigenous woman Member of the National Assembly, she will be able to inspire a greater understanding by the CAQ of the challenges faced by Indigenous peoples across the province � something that has been sorely lacking during the first term of the Legault government.�
