Kanerahtiio Roger Jock, a Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) leader from the Akwesasne Reserve, carries a vision of return for his people to their ancestral lands in the Mohawk Valley of Central New York. Kanerahtiio's vision of a peaceful return to the Mohawk Valley has brought people of all different cultures and political stripes together in support to build the frame of a traditional Longhouse

on his ancestral soil.
