Aerial view of the Droulers / Tsiionhiakwatha site.

A total of at least 3 200 cedar posts were needed to construct the four longhouses and the palisade at the Droulers / Tsiionhiakwatha site. A special aspect of this presentation project is the participation of members of the Akwesasne Mohawk community, who have been steadily involved since the very first reconstruction efforts and have helped in particular to build the longhouses and the palisade.
