Onkwawenna Kentyohkwa


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.

Talkathon - IT HAPPENED!

Tewawennakará:tat! - our all-day Talkathon - took place Thursday from 9 in the morning til 3 in the afternoon. It was a great day. We live-streamed 100% Mohawk language content - stories, lessons, songs, dance, presentations and some very funny films. We will be posting most of the content on our Youtube Channel soon. Stay tuned for the details.
