Our Mission Statement

Children are our future. We support their rights and each community members’ right to personal growth and achievement. We respect & honour these children, ourselves, our fellow workers, and we take personal responsibility for our contribution to the community & environment. We strongly believe in the importance of our Kanien’keha language and culture, and we will respect, promote and protect it.

History of the Kanehsatà:ke Education Center

In 1988, a Band Council Resolution (BCR) authorized the Interim Kanehsatà:ke Board of Education to begin negotiations with the Department of Indian Affairs for the gradual take-over of education programs and services. Through the Interim Board, the Kanehsatà:ke Education Centre was created and began with six salaried employees negotiated through a transfer of person years (P/Y's) with the Department. The Kanehsatà:ke Education Centre has now been in existence for 18 years and there are three schools in the community: Aronhiatekha, Elementary, Rotiwennakehte Kanien'keha Immersion and Ratihente High School.
