Wa’tkwanonhwerá:ton!  /  Greetings!

Onkwawenna Kentyohkwa (Our Language Society) is a community-based organization that teaches Kanyen’keha (the “Mohawk” language) to adults on the Six Nations Grand River Territory near Brantford, Ontario.

This is a full-time program that takes place over two school years. We began teaching in September, 1999. But we do not just teach language, we create speakers.

We would not have achieved this without a lot of help from many people and organizations. Learn who they are and learn more about them here.


We receive the occasional request for information on how to donate to our organization. We appreciate this generosity and welcome donations via PayPal, for which you don’t need an account. The link to donate is here: Donate.
