Vision Statement: Tyendinaga, as part of the Mohawk Nation, is a healthy, sustainable Kanyen'kehà:ka community, built on and united by our language, culture, traditions, knowledge, and history. We exercise our rights and responsibilities for the protection of and respect for our people, our land, our resources, and the environment.
The Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (MBQ) are proud of our heritage, history, and culture. MBQ is part of the Mohawk Nation within the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy.
We are one of the Six Nation communities politically associated with the Iroquois Caucus and a member First Nation of the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians (AIAI).
Our current membership as of August 2014, is 9,280, of which 2,167 members live on the Territory. As of 2007, we have the ninth largest membership of all First Nations in Canada, and are the third largest in Ontario.
