INFORMATION
The Aka:we Canoe Club joined the CCA in 2004 as the fourth First Nations sprint club, part of an association initiative to expand First Nations representation. Aka:we first began in 1999 with the assistance of canoeing great Bert Oldershaw. The club promotes fun, health and well-being while keeping the cultural aspect of canoeing alive. “Aka:we” is a Mohawk word meaning “paddle.” Aka:we hosts the Pauline Johnson Regatta, named after the popular Mohawk writer and member of the former Brantford Canoe Club.
