New Award - Lawrence Twoaxe Unity Award

Mr. Twoaxe's dedication to school employees and raising the standards of school custodian services throughout California is a well-known, proud part of our storied history. But Mr. Twoaxe's contributions to society went beyond our union. Mr. Twoaxe was a proud member of the Mohawk tribe from Kahnawake Mohawk Territory in Quebec. In 1935, Mr. Twoaxe founded the League of North American Indians. At the time, it was the largest native organization in the world.
When Mr. Twoaxe passed in 1949, his obituary appeared in the Native Voice, a tribal publication in British Columbia, Canada.
"His whole life was one of humanitarian service in the interests of his race," wrote journalist John Laurie.
Mr. Twoaxe left a legacy of organizing, for school employees and for native peoples of North America.
