Sky-Deer, Jay Treaty Border Alliance, to meet with Federal Ministers today


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke wishes to advise the community that Oh�n:ton �:iente ne Ratits�nhaienhs (Grand Chief) Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer will participate in a meeting between the Jay Treaty Border Alliance and three (3) Federal Ministers on the topic of border crossing.

Ministers Marco Mendicino (Public Safety), Marc Miller (Crown-Indigenous Relations) and Sean Fraser (Immigration and Citizenship) will host the meeting in Ottawa at 5:30pm.

�We are looking forward to this long-awaited meeting with Federal Ministers to begin the dialogue to address our border crossing rights,� said Grand Chief Sky-Deer. �Canada has not implemented the principles of the Jay Treaty, and Onkweh�n:we from all across Turtle Island should be able to exercise freedom of passage and entitlement to benefits no matter what side of the line they reside or were born on.�

Grand Chief Abram Benedict is expected to attend as well, along with representatives from Six Nations, Kanehsat�:ke, and Caldwell First Nation. All are members of the Jay Treaty Border Alliance.
