Kanatsiohareke was founded in 1993 to be a sustainable Onkwehonwe (Indigenous) community where Mohawk and other Haudenosaunee people could come to reconnect with their language and cultural traditions removed from influences of Western industrialized society. Visitors can participate in a range of educational programs aimed at preserving traditional Mohawk/Haudenosaunee culture and language while building an expanded understanding of these among both Haudenosaunee and non-Haudenosaunee people. Ā Hailing from an ancient culture based upon consensus-building, democratic participation of all community members, and the active striving for peace and justice for all humans, all life forms, and the natural world around us, the lessons offered at Kanatsiohareke are increasingly relevant in the world today.
