Historians, archaeologists and other academic scholars have long known of the Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk People) residing in their traditional homelands for thousands of years. In fact, there is a strong Mohawk history in the New York State’s eastern portion prior to European colonization; with many lakes, towns, valleys and other locations noting a Mohawk presence. Now; thanks to $6,000 in financial support from the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal General Fund; travelers will soon be able to enjoy visiting, reading and learning about this Native American history through a new historical marker project. See story for details. Above is Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Historic Preservation Officer Arnold Printup.
