Keena King
Community Outreach Worker @Seven Dancers Coalition
My name is Keena King. I'm a member of the Mohawk Nation in Akwesasne NY. I'm a mother of four beautiful children. Biilie, Anthonnia, Angel and Ratatehwehniio. I recently started working at Seven Dancer's since October as a Community Outreach Worker. I assist in helping our women find resources and start with their healing process through Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. Being a survivor myself, I've learned that our culture has a huge impact on our healing process. I've created a few programs to help identify, work through and maintain a healthy life as single mothers. I'm just here to do my part the very best that I can.
