FNU, URegina, FENFC sign agreement to offer Mohawk certificate at FNU

First Nations University of Canada, the University of Regina, and the Fort Erie Native Friendship Centre (FENFC) have signed an agreement that will enable FNU to offer a Mohawk Language Certificate Program. FNU will launch Yonkwatkontahkwenhatye (We are Continuing in Mohawk) in Fall 2023. The online, two-year program includes 15 credit hours of Mohawk and general courses, and those who complete the program will receive a Certificate of Mohawk 1. “The Fort Erie Native Friendship Centre has had success with this particular program for the last two years and so what we are doing is certifying the language program,” said FNU President Jacqueline Ottmann. “We are committed to supporting that resurgence of Indigenous languages.”
