A large delegation of directors and staff from the Assembly of First Nations are touring Akwesasne today, with representatives from the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne joining them.

AFN, which represents all First Nations people across Canada, has moved their main headquarters to a new location on Kawehno:ke (Cornwall Island), with their “sister office” located in the capital city of Ottawa. AFN’s former head office was located at the Peace Tree Trade Centre and has recently relocated to Irene Roundpoint Road, with both local and non-local indigenous staff.

With many AFN staff working directly in Akwesasne, the organization wanted to become more familiar with MCA and the Akwesasne community. Their tour includes traveling physically through the districts and stopping at main points of interest.

Welcome to our friends at AFN and nia:wen for taking the time to learn more about our community.
