Special Announcement for 2020
October 30, 2020
Dear friends of Kanatsiohareke,
As we first announced here in April, Kanatsiohareke has had to cancel all its in-person events for 2020, to protect the health of our residents. However, we have found ways to continue many of our programs online, starting with our annual Indigenous Writers' Group sessions and our Strawberry Festival Online Vendor Space and Auction in June, and our online Mohawk Language camp classes in July. Now, we are pleased to offer Fall Online Mohawk Language classes as well - see the Language section below for details and a registration form.
As always, please keep in touch by following updates to our Facebook page (Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community) and this website, mohawkcommunity.org. We look forward to your continued support -- take care, be safe, and stay well everyone!
