QUEBEC CITY, Dec. 14, 2022 – Media representatives are invited to attend the Lieutenant Governor of Québec’s First Peoples (First Nations) Medal presentation ceremony.

The medal will be awarded to eight recipients from different Nations in Québec.

The First Peoples Medal of the Lieutenant Governor of Québec is intended to recognize the exceptional contribution of members of the First Nations and the Inuit Nation. This recognition highlights the career of remarkable individuals who, through their achievements, their involvement and their commitments, contribute to the influence of their community, their Nation or the First Peoples at the Quebec, Canadian or international level. The recipients are recognized as inspiring people who bring change to the social, cultural, community and economic challenges facing First Peoples.

The medal is available in two categories depending on whether the recipient belongs to the First Nations or the Inuit Nation. During this ceremony, we will attend the presentation of the First Peoples Medal (First Nations) to:

  • Mrs. Mary Coon (Atikamekw Nation)
  • M. John Satekaienton Diabo (Mohawk Nation)
  • Mrs. Lucie Landry (Abenaki Nation)
