On Ohiarí:ha/June 4, 2018 the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe continued its support for the Ohero:kon "Under the Husk" Rites of Passage with its fourth annual donation of $20,000 from the SRMT Community Partnership Fund. The contribution represents the Tribe's ongoing efforts to help strengthen Mohawk culture and identity, which is a universal principle identified in its 10-Year Strategic Plan "Working Together Today to Build a Better Tomorrow." Ohero:kon is a four-year traditional rites of passage ceremony that has been revived to help adolescents transition into adulthood by strengthening them spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.
