The Jikohnsaseh Women of Excellence Award – Highlighting Professional Achievement
Jikohnsaseh was a founder of the Iroquois Confederacy and instrumental in forming the five Iroquois nations. The joining of these Native American nations was built on the message of peace, health and justice – almost 750 years before the American Constitution. Jikohnsaseh had great vision and wisdom. She was passionate about equal rights for all Native American people and all women, and inspired both her people and those around her. The Victor Chamber of Commerce honors women who lead like Jikohnsaseh with the Victor Chamber Women of Excellence Award. The award honors:
“A woman who loves and/or works in Victor, who embodies the characteristics of Jikohnsaseh and has reached a level of professional achievement that is impressive or has contributed significantly to her chosen career field. This woman serves as a professional role model for all women and demonstrates significant professional achievement, leadership and mentoring” (Victor Chamber of Commerce).
