The Medicine Line at Akwesasne
The sun sets on the forests of the Saint Lawrence River, which divides Mohawk lands, as seen from Akwesasne Reserve no. 59 in Canada. Despite successes the Mohawk have had in international recognition of their status as a nation, the US and Canada do not recognize their sovereignty. Today, Mohawk lands are split by the US-Canada border along the river, which is known as the medicine line.
