Official website of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte - Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. Learn more about our community and culture, the programs and services provided by the MBQ Administration, and the political leadership of Tyendinaga Mohawk Council.
Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory is an 73 km² (18000-acre) Mohawk First Nations reserve on the Bay of Quinte in southeastern Ontario, Canada, east of Belleville and immediately to the west of Deseronto. It serves as the land base for the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (Kenhtè:ke Kanyen'kehá:ka) First Nation.
The community takes its name from a variant spelling of Mohawk leader Joseph Brant's traditional Mohawk name, Thayendanegea (standardized spelling Thayentiné:ka), which means 'two pieces of fire wood beside each other'. Officially, in the Mohawk language, the community is called "Kenhtè:ke", which means "the place of the bay".
