KEPO and KORLCC Kanienk�ha Field Guide Collaboration


The Kahnaw�:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO) and the Kanien′keh�:ka Onkwaw�n:na Raotiti�hkwa Language and Cultural Center (KORLCC) are pleased to announce the publication of, "Ohna′kenhr�:non Otsi′ten′ok�n:′a Ne Kahnaw�:ke N�n:we Konwatiienter�stha Kahiat�nshera - Backyard Birds of Kahnaw�:ke: Field Guide," a collaborative project to highlight cultural and ecological knowledge in our community.

This field guide features descriptions of ten common backyard birds and other bird-watching and conservation tips in both Kanien′k�ha and English. This is the first edition of a series of youth-focused Kanien′k�ha field guides that will concentrate on flora and fauna in the community. It′s the perfect companion to KEPO′s annual bird count in the winter and for exploring our community.

Copies have been provided to Kahnaw�:ke schools and are also available at the Kahnaw�:ke Library and Iakwahwatsirat�tie Language Nest. 

Schools and community groups who are interested in learning more about bird conservation are encouraged to contact KEPO at 450-635-0600 or

To support the publication of the second edition, KORLCC and KEPO are hosting a book sale on Thursday, December 1, 2022, at the Tewatohnhi′saktha Lobby from 8:30am to 4pm. Copies will be available at a reduced price, and all proceeds will be used for the creation of the second edition.
