Federal government to provide $10 million for Kahnawake Survival School

QUEBEC

The federal government will provide $10 million towards construction of a state-of-the-art school at Kahnawake.

The new 6,000-square-metre Kahnawake Survival School will include laboratories, computer rooms, a library, a gym, a cafeteria and rooms for specialized services like art and wood-working.

It replaces the school’s current facilities, which include 15 buildings of varying ages and quality.

The school hopes to open its doors to Kahnawake students from grades seven to 11 in time for the 2008-2009 school year.

The architecture of the new facility was inspired by symbols contained in the oral history of the Mohawks, but also includes many contemporary designs for energy efficiency, such as geo-thermal heating and cooling.

The Mohawk community of Kahnawake is located 10 km southwest of Montréal, on the south shore of Lake Saint-Louis.
