Kanatsiohareke’s Fall Festival Fundraiser

Dating back as early as the 12th century, the Mohawk Valley has been home to the Kanienkehaka (“People of the Flint or Mohawk), who are themselves members of the Haudenosaunee (Longhouse), and it was the conflicts that took place in the 1700’s which came with the European peoples that sent the Kanienkehaka from their lands; their villages and the resting places of their ancestors.

Online vendor market from November 1-13, silent auction will run Nov 7-13, and the live performances will be held on Sunday Nov. 13, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm at Cafe Lena in Saratoga NY.

The Mohawk community at Kanatsiohareke invites you to support the community and the vendors and artists who help make our fundraising festivals a success each year.  This year we are combining an on-line vendor tabling event, a silent auction, and both recorded and live performances by supporters and members of the community.

Online Vendor market and Silent Auction

The online vendor market is from November 1-13 as a Facebook group vendor market! Group members can browse the listings and contact the vendors to purchase their wares. Group members are encouraged to browse the listings and contact the vendors to purchase their wares. To participate in the online market and auction, you only have to request to join the 2022 Kanatsiohareke Fall Festival public group on Facebook, and agree to the rules, terms and conditions of the event.

The live fundraising event on 11/13 will feature Tom  Porter, Joe and Jesse Bruchac, Kay Olan, Perry Ground and others.

Either way, please plan to  join us to celebrate Kanatsiohareke and our return to live events after our long shutdown.

The Kanatsiohareke Mission

To promote the development of a community based on the traditions, philosophy, and governance of the Haudenosaunee, and to contribute to the preservation of the culture of people as a framework for a blend of traditional native concerns with the best of the emerging new earth friendly, environmental ideologies that run parallel to these traditions.
