On the Canadian border, artistry connects travelers to Mohawk culture

Akwesasne Travel moves tourism ahead with three cultural experiences, connecting artistry and Mohawk culture to travelers.

Tourism “has been a part of who we are for centuries,” says Penny Peters, Akwesasne’s tourism industry development manager. “We’re a very welcoming community.” The plan to formalize tourism in Akwesasne first emerged in 2008 out of a comprehensive community development plan that found that Akwesasronon were interested in developing tourism as a way to tell their stories and to support cultural revitalization by helping people make a living from their artistry.
