This film was produced as part of the Healing through Storytelling project. The project offered mixed media art and writing workshops to residential school survivors, their families and their descendents with ties to Kenhtè:ke (Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory).

Architect Selected – Kenhtè:ke Language and Cultural Centre

Tsi Tyonnhéht Onkwawén:na has selected Brooke-McIlroy’s Indigenous Design Studio to oversee construction for the the proposed Kenhtè:ke Language and Cultural Centre.

The Indigenous Design Studio is led by Principal Ryan Gorrie and comprised of Indigenous architects, landscape architects, and designers who provide full-scope architectural design services with an Indigenous perspective.

This is an important step forward in the construction of the KLCC and for language revitalization in our community. This dedicated, purpose-built facility will enhance the learning experience of all Kenhtekeró:non and ensure our children are raised as Kanyen’kehà:ka. Saving our language will only happen when we have rebuilt a complete language community.  Read more about the project.

Tsatéweyenst Skátne ne Tsítha / Learning with Tsítha

Learning With Tsítha is a site dedicated to helping Kanyen’kehá:ka children and their families learn Kanyen’kéha.

There are animated stories and word games that entertain and help children with word recognition, pronunciation, grammar, spelling and math. LWT is designed for children and their families so, it works best when someone older uses the site with young ones.

We hope Learning With Tsítha helps your family find lifelong learning and enjoyment in our Kanyen’kehá:ka language and culture.
