This Kahnawà:ke Land Claims website aims to provide Kahnawa’kehró:non with information on the status of Kahnawà:ke’s various Specific Claims. Throughout our history, Kahnawà:ke has experienced tremendous losses of land that gave rise to legal grievances. The Specific Claims process is an avenue for addressing these historical wrong-doings and seeking resolution for these land losses.
The Seigneury of Sault St. Louis (SSSL) Land Grievance is particularly important to Kahnawà:ke. As a result, in recent years, the MCK has focused its efforts on resolving this particular grievance in a way that reflects the community’s principles and values. As negotiations progress, the MCK recognizes the need to consult with the community to collect direction on issues concerning the claim. Therefore, it is highly encouraged that all Kahnawa’kehró:non are informed of the grievance and provide feedback about the negotiations. Reporting on the status of the SSSL Grievance and negotiations will be regularly updated on this website. As such, it is encouraged that you visit kahnawakeclaims.com regularly to stay informed.
As you become familiarized with the claims the MCK is working on, and questions or comments arise, you are welcome to submit questions or feedback through email, phone, or in person. Please visit the Contact Us section of this website for contact information.
Nia:wen Kowa, for your time and attention.
