“In building the Longhouse we are making the connection between the sky (our true Longhouse) and the Earth. It will be a place of teaching about our creation stories and principles of living in harmony as they were given to our people in the original Good Message and reinforced by the Great Law of Peace." — Kanerahtiio Roger Jock


A message to our volunteers...

Your time, presence and support is valuable and we say niawenhkó:wa (a big thank you) to each and every one of you. It is because of you that the Kanien'kehá:ka Return to Ancestral Homelands Movement can continue on.

We are in the process of planning an appreciation meal and social in honor of all of our volunteers. (Date: TBD) Stay connected for further updates.

We invite you to be a part of this extraordinary opportunity to heal an original wound and work together to create a new story of healing and repair and a livable future for our children.


Kanerahtiio Roger Jock, a Kanien’kehá:ka leader from the Akwesasne Reserve, carries a vision of return for his people back to their ancestral lands in the Schoharie Valley of Central New York.


Kanerahtiio's work building a traditional Kanien’kehá:ka Longhouse has inspired people from all political stripes and backgrounds to come together to learn about the Great Law of Peace of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and support a model of restorative justice and community-supported land reparations. 

Niawen to all of the beautiful people who have helped to bring this structure and symbol of peace to the Schoharie Valley. We put the first poles in the ground on September 13th, 2020 and have continued building and gathering community at the longhouse since then. We would love to see you again, give thanks and share some words and songs as we work together to build a new story of unity and hope at the Eastern Gate of Turtle Island.
