Brandon Montour

Brandon Montour
My name is Brandon Montour and I am a Kanien'kehá:ka of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. I live in a small community known as the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake, a First Nation reserve south of Montreal. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and am currently pursuing a law degree at McGill University. In the future, I hope to advocate for systemic change and address the innumerable challenges faced by Indigenous people across Canada. Mon nom est Brandon Montour et je suis un Kanien’kehá:ka membre de la Confédération Haudenosaunee. Je vis dans une petite communauté connue sous le nom de territoire mohawk de Kahnawake, une réserve des Premières Nations située au sud de Montréal. Je détiens un baccalauréat en sciences politiques et poursuis actuellement des études en droit à l’Université McGill. Dans le futur, je souhaite plaider pour le changement systémique et m’attaquer aux innombrables défis auxquels font face les peuples autochtones à travers le Canada.
