LINKS

Any search for Kanien'kéha (the language) Kanien'kehá:ka (the people) Mohawk (the calumny by which the Kanien'kehá:ka are commonly known), or some combination of them or their unaccented variants will provide a variety of links.

 

My favorite linking page is https://www.tumblr.com/search/kanienkehaka. It provides, for me, the right amount of material with each link to best enable learning, even if it is slanted too much for my taste towards a video game.

 

Kanien'kéha language resources, most taken from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohawk_language). I added my links 1/12/2015
