The Kanienkehaka Teachings

In our partnership with The Mohawk Traditional Council, we offer a series of workshops focusing on Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) culture. These workshops aim to enrich the cultural knowledge of children with regard to the traditions of indigenous peoples, thus promoting the process of reconciliation.

The tale of the Three Sisters

The Origin of Corn

Indigenous science tells us that corn is a plant that was developed by the elders and sages of old, over 10,000 years ago from grass. This plant is the basis of the diet of most people native to America. She is also one of the three sisters in the story of the Three Sisters, so named by our ancestors.

What are we doing there?
  • Sharing the tale of the Three Sisters
  • Learning the beneficial properties of corn
  • Making a doll with corn husks using a traditional confection technique.
