Akwesasne Land Law
The subject of developing an Akwesasne Land Law was identified as a need through the Entewatatha:wi Program’s work. This law could include subject matter like establishing an Akwesasne Lands Registry and requirements for surveying lands. The development of an Akwesasne Land Law was identified as a priority by the community as part of the Public Comment Session in October 2018, along with support from the Entewatatha:wi Program.
The Akwesasne Legislative Commission did select the development of an Akwesasne Land Law as a priority for 2019. This law is currently in Phase I
Law Development of the Akwesasne Legislative Enactment Regulation. Once a draft law has been developed, the document will be brought to the community for consultation to request feedback on the contents of the law.
