Community Representative appointed to Kahnawake Justice Commission


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke wishes to advise the community that Louise Mayo has been appointed as a community representative on the Kahnaw�:ke Justice Commission.

The appointment was passed by consensus and formalized at the duly-convened Council Meeting held on Tuesday, May 23, 2023. Ms. Mayo′s appointment is for a three-year term ending May 22, 2026.

In May of 2022, Mr. Davis Montour was appointed as a general member on an interim basis until a new community representative was appointed to take his place. Although Mr. Montour�s term of office has now ended, he will continue to participate at meetings of the Commission in an advisory role. ,

The Kahnaw�:ke Justice Commission consists of three (3) voting members, with one (1) non-voting member (the Commissioner of Justice) serving as the Chairperson. The appointment of Ms. Mayo fills the second of the two community representative spots on the Commission. The Commission�s mandate is to provide oversight to Justice Services by monitoring its activities in matters concerning the administration of the Kahnaw�:ke Justice System, and to also ensure that the integrity of the Kahnaw�:ke Justice System is protected and defended.
