(WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 2, 2014) – John Kane, Mohawk activist and national expert commentator on Native issues, will receive a Community Leader Media Award from the National Federation of Just Communities of Western New York. Kane is one of a select group of people and organizations chosen for their exemplary acts and deeds of service to the cause of promoting sisterhood and brotherhood in the local Western New York community.

“The significance of being selected for this award cannot be overstated since the Federation’s mission, which is dedicated to overcoming racism, bias and discrimination by building respect and trust through education, advocacy and community involvement, so closely mirrors my own,” says Kane.  “This award is an acknowledgement and, recognition by others, particularly in Western New York, that “my strategy, which is to create and promote meaningful forums for conversation on the issues facing Native peoples, is working.”

This year’s award designations include arts and culture, community service and volunteerism, education, healthcare, interfaith, media, social services, sports, youth, among others. Kane is the sole recipient in the media category.

Kane will be honored at a noon luncheon on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at the Buffalo Convention Center. For more information about this year’s awards, visit: http://www.nfjcwny.org/communityleaders.html.
