Mohawks

Mohawks – Kanienkeha:ka, the People of the Flint

Members of the Five Nations Iroquois Confederacy, the Mohawk nation’s strength is based on its well- structured social organization and a sedentary tradition imbued with spiritual values. In spite of their proximity to large cities and the influence of urban society, the Mohawks have succeeded in preserving their traditions while assuming control over their own education, health and services.

The Mohawk, the most populous nation in Quebec, have been able to preserve their value.  There are three mohawks communities : Akwesasne, Kahnawake and Kanesatake.
