The Earth Mother - Iethi'nihstenha Ohontsia

Let us give thanks to the mother earth, who has sustained our ancestors, and relations since the beginning of time. Her skin, the soils, provide for all forms of life. From the dry desert sands to the moist earth of the forest, she gives to all. Her bones, the rocks and stones support her, and the weight of all life, while maintaining strength and beauty as intended. Let us honor her with thanks. So be it in your mind. Now our minds are as one.

Onhwentsà:ke provides access to equipment, software, and training resources for Tribes and First Nations interested in developing Geographic and other information systems.

Onhwentsà:ke is located in the Environment Division Offices on Raquette Point in the Mohawk Nation Territory of Akwesasne.
