Mohawk, New York map

Mohawk is a small town in upstate New York. It is part of Herkimer County, in the Mohawk Valley. This area is rich in Native American history.

The origin of name from is from the MOHAWK nation.

In the Mohawk language, the people call themselves the autonym, Kanien’kehá:ka, “People of the Place of Flint” or “People of the crystal” or “People of the shards of light”. It has been spelled in a variety of ways as Europeans tried to put it into their phonetic systems (e.g. Canyeers.)

Some sources say Europeans adopted an Algonquian-language exonym given to the Kahnawake by traditional competitors of the tribe: in their language Mohawk meant “eaters of flesh”.

Mohawk (borrowed from the Narraganset ‘mohowaùuck’, ‘they eat (animate) things,’ hence what some scholars say to be a reference to some of the stories about the Mohawk tribes that have been handed down over time. Based on legends told by the Mohawk and other local paint the Mohawk as man-eaters who were the most ferocious, most easterly tribe of the Iroquois confederation. However none of this information can be confirmed as fact, it is a theory.

The Mohawk call themselves Kanien’gehaga, people of the place of the flint. Kanien’kehá:ka (“People of the Place of Flint”) are an Iroquoian-speaking indigenous people of North America originally from the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York.

As original members of the Iroquois League, or Haudenosaunee, the Mohawk were known as the “Keepers of the Eastern Door”. For hundreds of years, they guarded the Iroquois Confederation against invasion from that direction by tribes from the New England and lower New York areas.

EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM:

Mohawk has been plagued by the inability to advance education in the town due to it’s neighboring towns in Herkimer County. Namely in the towns of Herkimer and Frankfort.

With funding for schools on the decline in New York State, a major push has been made by educators and leaders of the community to consolidate school systems.

Their goals are to provide their children with the best education possible. In this day and age, many of the towns are struggling to afford their sports programs in addition to other major educational programs on the brink of disintegration if the towns don’t unite and form a larger, better school.

So to survive and thrive the leaders tried their best to make something positive happen.
