Community Decision Making Process Video Dramatization
Posted on February 21st, 2013
This video was created to give Kahnawa’kehró:non a sample of how the Community Decision Making Process (CDMP) works. The video uses the proposal of an imaginary law to illustrate the basic premise of the CDMP and how people participate in creating or amending Kahnawà:ke laws.
“It’s not a clinical look at the process but, rather, a realistic dramatization of the process in action,” said KLCC Coordinator Kahente Horn-Miller.
Membership Community Consultations begin on January 24, 2013 at Karonhianonha School Gym from 6pm to 8:30pm.
