Kanienkehaka national meeting called in Akwesasne

The Kanienkehaka Nation have called for a nation-wide meeting for all Kanienkeha across all Haudenosaunee territories to come to Akwesasne to discuss matters of governance.

Tehonwakanerehn spoke to TRT and said the meeting would discuss the people taking back the Kanienkehaka name, instead of being referred to as community Mohawks — and discussing nation governance in light of various community groups, councils and organizations across all the territories who are claiming to speak on behalf of all Mohawk people and their rights.

Tehonwakanerehn said the meeting would directly address issues like the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, Saint Regis Tribe, Nation Longhouse and affiliates from other communities like the Haudenosaunee Development Institute reaching to settle land claims on behalf of the Kanienkehaka.

The Meeting is open to all Kanienkeha people and will be held March 4 at 9:00 a.m. at the longhouse beside Wild Bills’ store in Hogansburg, NY on the states side of Akwesasne.
