Hotel Package Offers Unique Tourism Experience into Mohawk History

AKWESASNE — The Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort continues to take strides in becoming a destination of choice for people looking for a unique gaming experience in Northern New York State. A new hotel package is available that shares the rich cultural history of the Mohawk People through a partnership with the Akwesasne Cultural Center & Museum. It is the most recent product of a community initiative that seeks to develop a tourism industry in the Akwesasne community.

"The Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort is proud to build upon our history of providing enhanced services and unique gaming experiences for our hotel guests and visitors to the region,” said acting-General Manager Emily Lauzon. She added, “I’m pleased that through the collaborative efforts of Hotel Operations Team Member Chessie Thomas and Museum Program Coordinator Sue Ellen Herne our gaming facility is now able to offer an Akwesasne Cultural Experience Package, which is an exclusive package that you won’t find anywhere else in the region.”

As a member of the Akwesasne Tourism Working Group, the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort is supportive of efforts to highlight Akwesasne as premier destination for travelers to the North Country, while promoting economic development and creating opportunities for employment in the community’s blossoming tourism industry. The Resort’s hotel provides ideal accommodations for guests to launch their personal tour into the rich cultural history of the Mohawk community, as they receive customer service that goes beyond anything previously experienced.

For the rate of $145, guests receive an overnight accommodation in one of the hotel’s 150 luxuriously appointed rooms, two (2) admission tickets for a guided tour of the Akwesasne Cultural Center & Museum, a handcrafted aromatic Mohawk Sweetgrass basket weave bookmark, and a complimentary copy of the Akwesasne Mohawk Business Directory featuring local artisans and attractions. It is one of seven (7) hotel packages currently available, so interested guests are encouraged to request the Akwesasne Cultural Experience Package when making reservations to ensure its availability.

“The Akwesasne Cultural Experience Package provides a unique opportunity for tourists to stay in a Mohawk community and venture off the beaten path, as they take a trip into the culturally fascinating and largely untold story of the People,” shared Museum Program Coordinator Sue Ellen Herne. She added, “On behalf of the Akwesasne Tourism Working Group, I thank Acting-General Manager Emily Lauzon and staff for being an important partner and for helping share an educational experience that their hotel guests will appreciate and remember.”
