Visitors are welcome to visit our temporary exhibit that shares the rich culture and history of the Kanien’keháka. Beginning with the foundation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy to the 1990 Oka Crisis, the permanent exhibit features key cultural and historical areas that best explain who we are as Kanien’keháka.
Established in 1978, the Kanien’keháka Onkwawén:na Raotitióhkwa Language and Cultural Center (KOR) was created to preserve and enrich the language and culture of the Kanien’keháka (Mohawk) of Kahnawà:ke. Our center is located in the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawàke south of Montreal, Canada.
The Kanien’keháka Onkwawén:na Raotitióhkwa, is a vital and dedicated catalyst to lead and support all Kahnawa’kehrónon (Mohawks of Kahnawake) to practice, maintain, respect, renew, and enhance Kanien’kéha language, beliefs, values, customs and traditions through the development, delivery, and sharing with all peoples, cultural and educational activities which will ensure the continued existence of our present and future generations as Kanien’keháka.
The Language and Cultural Center (KOR) is presently operating in a temporary location, as we are set to begin a fundraising campaign to help us build a state of the art, cultural arts center in the community. To learn more, visit our website.
