Attractions

Nestled between several small rivers, as well as the larger St. Lawrence River, the Mohawk people thrived for generations among black ash trees and sweet grass, duck and deer, trout and bass. “Akwesasne,” as this area is known, translates to “Land where the partridge drums.” In fact, the St. Lawrence River Valley is as rich in natural resources as it is rich in Mohawk history.

Today the Mohawks of Akwesasne, or Akwesasronon, are presently situated on over 30,000 acres of tribal land extending from New York into Quebec and Ontario.
