Special Announcement for 2020
June 14, 2020
Dear friends of Kanatsiohareke,
As we announced here in April, Kanatsiohareke has had to cancel all its in-person events for the rest of 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. See our Events page and Language page for details on these programs and others that we plan to hold remotely, including online Mohawk Language classes in July. 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 -- please take care, be safe, and stay well everyone!
