Kahnawà:ke, Akwesasne, Kanesatake women chiefs to visit Chief Spence

KAHNAWAKE, QC, Dec. 19, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to inform the community that Kahnawà:ke Chiefs Rhonda Kirby, Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer, Christine Zachary-Deom and Gina Deer will be joined by Kanesatake Chiefs Sonya Gagnier, Shannon Nicholas, Sheila Bonspiel, Kathy Daye and Akwesasne Chiefs Karen Loran, Louise Thompson and April Adams-Phillips to meet with Chief Spence at 2:30pm today to offer the support of our communities during this second week of her hunger strike.

The women will bring offerings of tobacco, an Iroquois blanket and, most important, face-to-face dialogue with Chief Spence as she continues her brave journey.

While in Ottawa, the chiefs will also deliver an open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper demanding that, 1) he meet with Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence and, 2) address the issue of an unprecedented series of laws that are oppressive and insulting to First Nations. The letter can be viewed at www.kahnawake.com.
