Known as the "Keeper of the Western Door"

Faithkeepers School

The FKS Montessori Seneca Language Nest has a mission of fostering independent, confident, and socially responsible citizens who are exposed to the traditional teachings of Gaiwi:yo:h and the traditions of the Seneca people. We are committed to fostering a child's love of learning and respect for self, others, and the environment through the methodologies of Montessori.

Language Learning Resources with Memrise

The Faithkeeper's School uses Memrise, a web and mobile app to publish language learning tools and courses broken out by topic.
