Mr. F. Henry Lickers
Director of the Department of Environment for the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne Henry Lickers is a member of Seneca Nation, Turtle Clan, and is the Director of the Department of the Environment for the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne. For more than 25 years, Mr. Lickers has been instrumental in incorporating First Nation's people and knowledge into environmental planning and decision making. Throughout his career, Mr. Lickers has worked to address local, national, and international environmental issues with organizations including The International Joint Commission, The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada, and the Science and Technology Advisory Council to Environment Canada. In 2008, Mr. Lickers was awarded the Annual Sandford Fleming Medal by the Royal Canadian Institute for the Advancement of Science, for his "outstanding contributions to the public understanding of science". Mr. Lickers was the first speaker at the 4th Citizens Conference on Fluoride in 2010, held at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York by the Fluoride Action Network. His description of the intentional fluoride poisoning of the Akwesasne area of the Mohawk people is both vivid, saddening, and sprinkled with bits of humor. His presentation is difficult to ignore.
