The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Department of Health is sharing the unfortunate news of two (2) community members passing due to COVID-19. We offer our sincerest condolences to the families and friends who have lost a loved one. There are no words that we can provide to lift the immense sorrow you are feeling at this time.


The two individuals that passed were under the jurisdiction of the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, and now account for MCA’s eleventh and twelfth reported COVID-related passing.
