At Aseshate:ka'te Grief Services, wellbeing is at the forefront of what we’re working towards. The mission of Aseshate:ka’te Grief Services is to help individuals heal and recover from loss by renewing their spiritual fires one loss at a time.


The mandate of Aseshate:ka’te Grief Services is to renew the spiritual fire within individuals by offering services that work to strengthen and encourage growth and awareness of self by utilizing and incorporating cultural teachings while helping them heal and recover from loss. The impact of healing oneself extends to all those around them. As the fire within grows, so does the fire within the family and the community.

In April 2018, Aseshate:ka'te Grief Services received a grant from the Mohawks of Akwesasne Community Settlement Trust to start this organization. Doors opened for business in May 2018. Testimonials can be found above under the "testimonials" tab and below are some visual evaluations in a powerpoint presentation of 13 participants who completed their groups in December and January 2019.  To view power point, click the icon below: 

"If I were ever to find someone who felt the way I do, I would take the softest hide from the deer and I would wipe the tears from their eyes so they could see again. I would take the softest plume from an eagle and clean the dust of grief from their ears so they could hear again. I would take the purest spring water to remove the obstruction from their throat so they could speak again."
