Their Language

Today, most Mohawk people speak English. However, some Mohawks also speak their native Mohawk language. Mohawk is a hard to learn language with many sounds that are unlike English. If you want to know a few easy Mohawk words, "shekon" (pronounced similar to shay-cone) is a friendly greeting, and "niawen" (pronounced similar to nee-ah-wenh) means 'thank you'.
