Biography / Administrative history

The St. Regis Agency was charged with responsibility for the lands of the St. Regis-Akwesasne Iroquois. Though the Reserve now straddles the Ontario, Québec and New York State borders, it at one time occupied considerable tracts around the city of Cornwall, including the Nutfield Tract in Glengarry County. The St. Regis Agency, near Cornwall, Ontario was responsible for the Iroquois of St. Regis, the descendants of the Iroquois at Kahnawake who had moved up the St. Lawrence River from their old settlement opposite Montreal. In 1970 the St. Regis Agency merged with the Peterborough and Tyendinaga Agencies to form the Kingston District. The Iroquois of St. Regis changed their name to the Mohawks of Akwesasne in 1985.
