Kahnawake

Season 2, Episode 1 of 13

Written and directed by Roxann Whitebean. The Haudenosaunee Confederacy is a matrilineal society consisting of five founding Nations who later adopted a sixth nation to join their family. Kanentokon Hemlock is a traditional Bear clan representative from the Mohawk Nation at Kahnawake, a small community located outside Montreal. Their traditional territory is divided between present-day Quebec, Ontario and New York State. From a young age, Kanentokon was fascinated by his culture. He began the art of tattooing to revitalize the lost tradition and ancient protocols. In this episode, he invites us to witness the first tattooing in a longhouse in roughly 300 years.
