Kahnawake is a Mohawk Indian reservation (one of the six Iroquois nations) in Quebec, located in the administrative region of Montérégie. Its population is about 8000 individuals with approximately 6,500 living on the reservation and it was established in 1667. He assumed his current position since 1716. The term Sault-Saint-Louis distinguishes Kahnawake from other Amerindian villages of Lower Canada including St. Regis (Akwesasne) Deux-Montagnes (Oka-Kanesatake), the Abenaki village of St. Francis and the Wendat-Huron village of Lorette but the term Sault-Saint-Louis is not really used today except in the context of land claims. Since 1760, the Kahnawake Iroquois claim a portion of their territory, the lordship of Sault St. Louis, which was annexed to the neighboring lordship of La Prairie de la Madeleine. Today, they have only 11,000 acres of the original 40,000 acres.
When visiting the reserve, go to the tourist office next to the main St. Kateri Shrine where you can get all the necessary information for a good visit. They will give you a free map and a tourist booklet too.
You can of course visit shops selling regional products even as have a meal in a local restaurant.
