Take Peace with You
2022 Fall Festival

Announcing Kanatsiohareke's Fall Festival fundraiser, November 1 - 13, 2022!

The Mohawk community at Kanatsiohareke invites you to support the community and the vendors and artists who help make our fundraising festivals a success each year.  This year we are combining an on-line vendor tabling event, a silent auction, and both recorded and live performances by supporters and members of the community. The online vendor market will run Nov 1-13.  The online auction will run Nov 7-13, and the live performances will be held on Sunday Nov. 13, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm at Cafe Lena in Saratoga NY.


The live event on 11/13 will feature Tom  Porter, Joe and Jesse Bruchac, Kay Olan, Perry Ground and Jimmy Wolf.  To purchase tickets to the live show, go to Cafe Lena's website at 


If you can't attend in person, live-stream tickets can be purchased at https://caffelena.tv/programs/live-kanatsiohareke...

Either way, please plan to  join us to celebrate Kanatsiohareke and our return to live events after our long shutdown. 

To participate in the online market and auction, you only have to request to join the 2022 Kanatsiohareke Fall Festival public group on Facebook, and agree to the rules, and terms of the event. Vendors need to pay a one-time tabling fee of $12 to be registered to post items for sale. Once a vendor is registered they can post items for sale in the group discussion, and buyers can message them to  arrange for payment and shipping.

Here's a  link to the online market and auction: 2022 Fall Festival.

Starting on 11/7, auction items will appear there, marked as Auction 2022.  To bid on an auction item, enter a comment on it with your bid amount - the highest bid when the auction ends on 11/13 will win.

May 2022 Update from Kanatsiohareke:

At the request of our residents, Kanatsiohareke is continuing to hold remote activities this Spring.  The Board of Directors will announce a change to this precaution when all feel it is safe to do so.

The first event on our schedule for this year is our Indigenous Writers' Retreat, which will be held remotely via Zoom, June 6-10. For retreat details and a registration form, see our Events & Workshops page.

Next are our annual Mohawk  Language classes - three 5-day courses for levels from Introduction to Basic Mohawk Practice, held July 4 - 22, 2022. These classes will be held via Zoom and are open to all, with more information and registration forms on our Language page.





Sept. 18, 2021 Update

Kanatsiohareke remains closed at this time, for the safety of residents due to the new 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
