About Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe

St. Regis Mohawk Reservation is a Mohawk Indian reservation in Franklin County, New York, United States. It is also known by its Mohawk name, Akwesasne. The population was 3,288 at the 2010 census. The reservation is adjacent to the Akwesasne reserve in Ontario and Quebec. The Mohawk consider the entire community to be one unit. The reservation contains the villages of Hogansburg and St. Regis. Under the terms of the Jay Treaty (1794), the Mohawk people may pass freely across the Canada - United States border. The two parts of the reservation are separated by the St. Lawrence River and the 45th parallel. The Mohawk are one of the original Five Nations of the Iroquois, historically based in present-day New York, and the 'Keepers of the Eastern Door'
