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.
