Located 10 kilometres south of Montreal, is one of the eight communities that make up the Mohawk (Kanien’kehá:ka) Nation.

The Shrine of Kahnawà:ke’s recently canonized Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, is located in the Saint Francis Xavier Mission along with many architectural, religious, spiritual and historical treasures, tours, and, a museum. With over 250 businesses in the community, including the bed & breakfast, the golf courses, several restaurants, marina, specialty shopping and gift shops, there are plenty of opportunities for every visitor.

Kanien’kehá:ka Onkwawénna Raotitióhkwa Language & Cultural Center:
Our permanent exhibit has been compiled to share the rich culture and history of the Kanien’kehá:ka with visitors from around the world. Beginning with the foundation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy to the 1990 Oka Crisis, the permanent exhibit features key cultural and historical areas that best explain who we are as Kanien’kehá:ka.
In addition to our permanent exhibit, we also play host to alternating thematic exhibits featuring local artists from Kahnawà:ke.
While we do accept walk-ins for our permanent exhibit, it is preferred that you book your visit in advance for guided tours of the center and museum. To schedule a tour, please contact the offices of Kanien’kehá:ka Onkwawén:na Raotitióhkwa at 450.638.0880 or e-mail us at
