Tsi Niionkwarihò:ten Tsitewaháhara'n Center

Kanien'kéha Language and Culture Training Program

Tsi Niionkwarihò:ten Tsitewaháhara'n CenterCommitted to the enrichment of the social fabric of Kahnawà:ke by making the strongest and most determined effort to learn, revive, restore, use, teach and perpetuate and "live" the beautiful Kanien'kéha language within the community.
The Tsi Niionkwarihò:ten Tsitewaháhara’n Language and Culture Training Program is aimed at those with limited or no language background who are looking to gain or improve their language speaking ability and understanding through progressive language training as well as to increase cultural awareness and education through culturally relevant content, such as Kanien’kehá:ka history and traditions, complementary to the language training.

Tsi Niionkwarihò:ten Tsitewaháhara'n CenterThe goal is to empower and assist students to better communicate in Kanien’kéha (oral and written) through progressive language training and also cultural awareness education, ensuring that students feel a renewed sense of pride and enthusiasm in the course of performing their daily work responsibilities as well as within their everyday lives.

The program is an annual thirty-five week course, following an academic year, with registration beginning in early September.  Originally an in-house employee training program, Tsi Niionkwarihò:ten Tsitewaháhara’n has since grown to include seats for the Executive Director’s Committee organizational employees as well as, most recently, seats for community members in collaboration with the Kanien’kehá:ka Onkwawén:na Raotitióhkwa Language and Cultural Center.
