The Native North American Traveling College
Located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, the Native North American Traveling College promotes and preserves Mohawk language, culture, and history. Dedicated to raising awareness of Mohawk culture using traditional singing, dancing, and storytelling, this organization started out as a van that traveled around sharing what it meant to be Indigenous. It has since found a permanent home in Akwesasne on three acres of waterfront property along the St. Lawrence River.
This cultural hub includes a museum, an art gallery, a gift shop, and outdoor performance spaces. Visitors can expect to see rotating exhibits on Akwesasne and native culture, as well as handmade baskets, artwork, and locally published Mohawk books for kids and adults alike. Performances and cultural demonstrations can be booked in advance.
The NNATC also offers a small, onsite gift shop with jewelry, books and handmade crafts. Visit the website for more information on exhibits, cultural performances, annual events and other activities.
