Akwesasne Freedom School

  • The Akwesasne Freedom School is a model for any Indigenous people who are concerned with losing their language, culture and identity.
  • The school was formed to help the Mohawk Nation become strong again, by focusing on the young people.
  • Our survival is dependent on the understanding of the old ways and preserving the knowledge that is passed down from grandparents to children.
  • We want to help nurture strong, spiritually, physically, and emotionally healthy people who will eventually become the leaders in our community.
