Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs on her upcoming appearance on the prestigious Emmy Awards program this weekend.

“This is pretty incredible,” said Ohén:ton Í:iente ne Ratitsénhaienhs (Grand Chief) Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer. “Kawennáhere’s career has taken her to places most of us can’t even fathom. She continues to be the source of great pride not only for her family and friends, but all of Kahnawà:ke. On behalf of the community I’d like to congratulate her on this special honor. We’ll all be cheering you on, girl!”
