A Little About Us
The Kawenni:io/Gaweni:yo Elementary and Secondary School is a Gayogohono (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.
The Kawenni:io/Gaweni:yo Immersion School has been in operation since 1986, with the later development of the secondary school in 1995. Our aim is to help preserve the traditions and cultures of the Rotinonhsion:ni/Hodinohso:ni.
