Aboriginal Rights and Research Office

Our Team

The Aboriginal Rights and Research Office will work to advance the full recognition of the Inherent, Aboriginal and Treaty Rights of the Mohawks of Akwesasne within the political, legal, social, and economic environments in which they are affected. The Aboriginal Rights and Research Office will initiate activities and projects that make known and understood our Inherent, Aboriginal and Treaty rights within the community of Akwesasne and the public at large. The Aboriginal Rights and Research Office will work toward settling the land claims of the Mohawks of Akwesasne in an expeditious manner, and will educate and inform the community to the best of its ability to ensure that issues leading to settlement are favorable, commensurate, and acceptable.
