Gau-neh-gau-no-ron (Kanien'keha/Mohawk):

water is precious 

Kahnekanoron works to support Indigenous women and TwoSpirit/Queer folks who are food and medicine growers, harvesters and nurturers. We offer space to grow our ancestrally and familial inherited foods and medicines while sharing teachings and skills around our foods and medicines with each other.


The name of the program "Kahnekanoron" is Kanien'kéha (Mohawk language) meaning "water is precious". This is an affirmation reminding us that water, present in everything, is sacred - and so are you, me, every being, all of us. When we remember this, we walk the world with a good mind. 

Kahnekanoron offers two cycles of programming a year. Programming is guided by our seasonal responsibilities and learning interests, needs, and desires of Kahnekanoron kin. Previous program offerings have included harvesting and processing tomatoes and Haudenosaunee varieties of corn, self-care focused beadwork sessions, medicine exchanges, lessons in hide tanning, activities on identifying trees in winter, and more!
