Site Updates for 2021


Sept. 18, 2021 Update from the Board of Directors

Kanatsiohareke remains closed at this time, for the safety of residents due to the Delta variant of the Covid virus and its increased risk of infection even among those who are vaccinated.

In addition, the ongoing temporary closure of the Craft Store has been made permanent, due the increased expenses/losses associated with the COVID situation. Both the online and physical craft store are now permanently closed. Thank you for all your support for the store over the years!

Kanatsiohareke is continuing our online cultural programs, and expanding them where possible, including Mohawk Language classes and Indigenous writer retreats. We all look forward to holding in-person events again, when it is truly safe to resume them.

Dear friends of Kanatsiohareke,

As we first announced here in April last year, Kanatsiohareke has had
to cancel all in-person events to protect the health of our residents
and visitors during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are continuing that policy for 2021, until we know for certain that gatherings are safe again for all. 


In the meantime, we will again be offering and expanding the online programs that we started last year, including our Indigenous Writers' Retreat sessions and Mohawk Language classes.  We hope to add other online cultural programs as well, and we plan to have a Virtual Strawberry Festival again this year, with online performances, stories and an auction on the last weekend of June as always.  Mark your calendars for June 26, and plan on supporting our vendors in an Online Vendor Craft Sale leading up to the festival, starting on June 14. Stay tuned for more details on these and other programs in 2021!

As always, please keep in touch, by following our Facebook page
(Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community) and this website, mohawkcommunity.org.


Thank you all for your ongoing support -- take care, be safe, and
stay well everyone!

Nia:wen'ko:wa/Greatest thanks,

Kanatsiohareke Board of Directors
