Partnership as the heart
The Multi-Purpose Building project began as a need for a permanent home for the Kanien’kehá:ka Raotitióhkwa Language and Culture Center (KORLCC – Cultural Center and Museum). It grew quickly into adding an auditorium for the Turtle Island Theatre group, as they also needed a permanent home. Kahnawake Tourism was also added as a fundamental partner to be part of the building. A partnership between KORLCC, Turtle Island Theatre, Tourism and the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (The Partners). This relationship is the heart of this project, as The Partners, also known as the Building Committee make the decisions on all the developments to ensure a collaborative approach in making this project a reality.
