"The Mohawk language is considered endangered, with less than 2,500 speakers in Canada and the USA. While the number of first language speakers is declining across all Mohawk territories, the population of Indigenous Peoples in Canada is growing. The time to build and invest in a next generation of speakers is now. To reverse the decline of Indigenous languages in Canada, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission final report called for the establishment of more education and cultural spaces. That’s why we’re proposing the creation of a Kenhtè:ke Language and Cultural Centre in Tyendinaga."
