Kahnawake Survival School, Kahnawake Mohawk Territory, QC
The Mohawks of Kahnawake (Kahnawákeró:non) are an ancient people with a vibrant culture and rich history. One of the eight communities that make up the Mohawk (Kanien:keha'ka) Nation they have historic, political and cultural ties to the Oneida, Seneca, Onondaga, Cayuga and Tuscarora Nations of the Northeastern part of North America.
Kahnawá:ke is located 10 kilometers south of Montreal, on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. The word “Kahnawá:ke” means “on the rapids,” which perfectly describes the Territory’s eastern reaches.
Kahnawá:ke is one of seven communities, which comprise the Mohawk Nation. In turn, the Mohawks (or Kanienkehaka – the People of the Flint) are part of the larger Iroquois Confederacy. Kahnawá:ke is home to approximately 8,000 residents.
