Kahnawake Scleroderma Support Group

We are located on a Native reserve just outside of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The reserve name is Kahnawake (meaning along the rapids) of the St. Lawrence River. We are from the Mohawk nation Indian band. There are about 25 people on the reserve who have Scleroderma, out of a population of about 7,000.

Please call us for meeting information.

We are affiliated with the Scleroderma Society of Canada, where you can find additional information about our group.

Kahnawake Scleroderma Cluster?

A Message to the Kahnawake Mohawk Nation Re:Scleroderma Epidemic at Kahnawake. It is clear that the people of Kahnawake have been exposed to solvents from local industry and from dump sites. It is clear that there is much Scleroderma at Kahnawake. The high rate of Scleroderma must be investigated at Kahnawake and perhaps, Akwesasne. John H.W. Hummell, 10/05/09. (Also see Causes of Scleroderma: Solvents)
