The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne and Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe wish to inform the community that collaboration on COVID-19 matters continues to take place between our two governments on an almost daily basis.

Even though our specific regulations and restrictions aren’t always exactly the same, we continue to support one another in our combined effort to keep Akwesasne safe from the spread of COVID-19. We want the community to understand that there are various factors at play, such as differences in the cultures of the US and Canada; different federal, state, and provincial legislation and policies that may impact portions of our community; and different funding sources. All of these factors have a bearing on the decisions made by our respective governments, and their timing as well.

MCA and SRMT leadership are determined to make the best decisions for the community. We appreciate the community’s understanding while we work together to keep COVID-19 at bay. Please know that your cooperation is what makes it all possible.
