Mohawk & Cayuga Immersion
Who We Are
The Kawenni:io/Gaweni:yo Elementary and Secondary (high school) School is a Gayoghno (Cayuga) and Kanienkehaka (Mohawk) language immersion school located on the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in Southern Ontario.
Our name reflects our mandate. The two words – Kawenni:io in the Mohawk language, and Gaweni:yo in the Cayuga language – means “good sounding words.” With this in mind, we have created a curriculum based on concepts as set forth in the Thanksgiving Address, which is a speech that is spoken before any meeting of our people and which is a reflection of how we view the world.
