The Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory is a Mohawk First Nations reserve on the Bay of Quinte. The community takes its name from a variant spelling of Mohawk leader Joseph Brant’s traditional Mohawk name, Thayendanegea. Tyendinaga is a small community, but it is rich in heritage and culture.
The Tyendinaga community hosts several authentic Mohawk traditional celebrations every year that the general public can also be included in. This community is very proud of their culture and is willing to share their stories and way of life with all of those interested.
Tyendinaga is home to First Nations Technical Institute, an educational partner with Canadore College.
The reserve also has a primary school, Quinte Mohawk School.
For high school on-reserve residents have the option of attending Moria Secondary School in Belleville, or attending the Ohahase Learning Centre, which is a private secondary school operated by the First Nations Technical Institute.
