Special Announcement for 2020
April 13, 2020
Dear friends of Kanatsiohareke,
Due to the current pandemic, Kanatsiohareke is cancelling all its public events and programs for the rest of this year, to ensure the safety of our residents. Tom and his family are well and send their greetings, but ask that all friends refrain from visiting the community during this time. Please keep in touch by following updates to our Facebook page (Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community) and our website, mohawkcommunity.org. We will be offering ways that you can help support the community online, and we look forward to your continued support. Please take care, be safe, and stay well everyone!

Mohawk Language at Kanatsiohareke
Tetitewaha ne Onkwawen:na!
Let's bring our language back!
Due to current restrictions on travel and gatherings related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are sorry to announce that the Language Days scheduled for April 4 and May 2 at Kanatsiohareke are cancelled.
We are hoping to be able to reschedule those events at a later time.
The 2020 Summer Language Camp program will also not be held at the Kanatsiohareke Community, for the same reason. We are hoping it still may be possible to hold some of the summer sessions online.
In the meantime, please be safe and stay healthy everyone!
