WELCOME TO KGPS.CA 2021
Teaching Haudenosaunee Culture & Language Using Contemporary Pedagogies. 

Sgę:no/Shé:kon,

Kanien’kéha (Mohawk) and Gayogohó:nǫ (Cayuga) are the languages of instruction here at Kawenní:io|Gaweni:yo Private School.  Kanien’kéha and Gayogohó:nǫ are critically endangered languages at Six Nations. In 1994, a census of speakers indicated 138 speakers of Gayogohó:nǫ and 74 speakers of Kanien’kéha at Six Nations. As of 2020, there are less than 30 native speakers of Gayogohó:nǫ (the Cayuga language) and less than 5 native speakers of Kanien’kéha (the Mohawk language) remaining at Six Nations. 

Our Staff, Administration, and Board of Directors offer our respect and deep admiration to our students and their families in their on-going efforts to revitalize and grow our ancestral languages and cultural practices; especially in these times of a global pandemic.

Our thoughts and words of strength go out to everyone at this time.
