The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is conducting a survey (for ages 18 and over) regarding band membership and Indian registration issues in the community of Akwesasne.  By taking a few minutes to answer the questions about membership you can be entered in a draw to win a 1 year membership to Heart to Heart Fitness Centre.


The Membership review is in keeping with reconciliation and a renewed nation-to-nation relationship based on the recognition of rights, respect, partnership and cooperation. The Government of Canada has made a commitment to a collaborative process with First Nations on the issues of Indian registration, Band membership and First Nations citizenship and this is your opportunity to voice your opinions on membership from a community perspective.


The survey is an opportunity for us to identify key issues pertaining to Indian registration and band membership with the objective of identifying areas for future reform. This process is intended to inform how comprehensive engagements on the broader issues relating to Indian registration, Band membership and First Nations citizenship will take shape, what subject matter will be discussed and to determine what activities should be undertaken by participants as part of the collaborative process with the federal government.   


The survey will provide information on the current status of membership in our community. Your responses are CONFIDENTIAL.  Your participation in this survey indicates that you consent for the survey results to be used by the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne.  Survey results and findings will be shared in a final report which will inform the development of a framework to guide the comprehensive consultations under the collaborative process designed to identify key membership issues intended for long term reform.


The survey deadline is Monday March 12, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.  Please click the link below and don’t miss your chance to win a gym membership. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Rose-Alma McDonald, Katenies Research and Management Services by email
