Lynn Konwaia’tanón:we’s Jacobs is from the Mohawk community of Kahnawà:ke, located on the St. Lawrence River near Montreal. She has worked in her community in the field of environmental
protection for more than 20 years. In addition to her education on the land, she has a Bachelor of Environmental Science and a Master of Environment and Management. Lynn was first introduced to the
South Pacific during a semester abroad at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia. She later
participated in a youth program that took her to the Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Hawaii. In 1999, she
was selected to participate in PPP’s Indigenous internship program with ECOWOMAN in Fiji, where she was fortunate to assist with workshops in remote communities.
She continued her involvement with PPP on the Indigenous Youth to Youth project, as a contributor to Tok Blong Pacifik, and a speaker at
PPP conferences. Lynn has maintained strong connections to the South Pacific through her travels and friendships, and is excited to contribute to the work of PPP. She lives on a small farm in Kahnawà:ke
Mohawk Territory with her husband, their three kids, and many fluffy and feathered creatures.
