Community Feedback Being Sought for Information Kiosk

Dec 12, 2017

AKWESASNE – The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Cultural Tourism Office is looking for your community feedback on three information panels that are being developed for a tourism information kiosk in Akwesasne. The proposed location for the kiosk will be alongside the St. Regis River in Tekahson’karó:rens (Hogansburg), which is the new green space the Tribe created this past summer across from the former site of the Hogansburg Dam.

“The information kiosk provides an opportunity for Akwesasne to share its rich and vibrant culture, history, language, and geography with visitors to the community,” stated Akwesasne Heritage Complex Developer Gail McDonald. “It will speak about the Mohawk people’s connection with the environment and the importance to protect the many waterways that converge in the Akwesasne Territory; including the Raquette, St. Lawrence, St. Regis, Salmon and Grasse Rivers.”

The information kiosk is a project developed through funding derived under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund and is being managed through an agreement with the Village of Potsdam. The kiosk project will help promote tourism along the Raquette River Blueway Trail, which follows the river’s scenic and historic corridor north 174 miles from the Blue Mountain Lake into the St. Lawrence River at Akwesasne.

The Tribe’s Economic Development Cultural Tourism Office worked in collaboration with the Akwesasne Cultural Center Museum to develop a preliminary design of the information kiosk, with content and artwork provided by Akwesasne artisans. The sample panels are available to view at the Akwesasne Library and in the Community Building Lobby until Tsiothohrkó:wa/January 2, 2018; as well as on the Tribe’s Facebook page and Website at

The Cultural Tourism Office invites community members to review the sample panels and provide any comments, feedback or suggestions by email to For more information, please contact the Akwesasne Heritage Complex Developer at (518) 358-4238 extension 1507.
