SLC, MCA, SUNY sign unique cross-border agreement benefiting Indigenous students

September 1, 2016

The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne has engaged in a cross-border partnership with St Lawrence College and the State University of New York at Potsdam that will help train Mohawk students to meet the need for archeological specialists in the St Lawrence region. According to the SLC release, MCA Grand Chief Abram Benedict indicated that there was a distinct need for archeological specialists in the region, “as the St Lawrence Seaway holds centuries of shared history.” Through the partnership, Mohawk students will complete a General Arts and Sciences diploma delivered by Iohahi:io in Akwesasne at SLC, before transferring into the junior year of a Bachelor of Arts in Archeological Studies at SUNY Potsdam.
