On 2 June 2017 The Guardian reported:
A Quebec Member of Parliament has addressed Canada's House of Commons in Mohawk, in what is believed to be the first time the indigenous language has been used officially in the legislature since it was established in 1867. 'I stand here to honour the Mohawk language and I pay my respects to their people. Hopefully it will help to us to become better friends,' Marc Miller said at the start of Canada's national aboriginal history month on Thursday, June 1. Miller, who is bilingual in English and French, said he decided to learn an indigenous language when he saw English-speaking colleagues in the Quebec caucus attempting to learn French. But he was also motivated by the precarious state of Canada's 60 or so indigenous languages.
