A Canadian Family

Natives, French Canadians & Acadians

Main Street in Iroquois Mohawk Community of Caughnawaga, Quebec

This is a very poor quality image of Caughnawaga in the 1930s. I share it because it’s rare and seems difficult to find online.

Thank you to  Kakwirakeron R Montour  for correcting the date from “mid-century”.

    • That building across from the church used to be the dentist office. Scared the heck out of me when I was a kid in school. They would line us up to pull teeth. Now there’s just the “4 corners”.

  3. Please email me the Main Street. Thanks in advance
    My grand mother was from Caughnawaga. And we received a letter from the Caughnawaga Indian Agency that certify thst Mrs. Cecilia Phillips is the legiitmate daughter of the late Joseph Phillips and Helen Rinfret Phillips both Indian Members of the Caughnawaga Band of Indians located at Caughnawage, in the Province of Quebec, Canada. For some reason the council does not allow her daughters and son recognition to join the Indian Members of the Caughnawaga Band of Indians. Do you have any ideas on how this process can happen. I sent many letters and have also a family and sent a family history from the Mission Saint-Framcois-Xavier.
