The Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne is a Mohawk Nation (Kanien ľkeh√°:ka) territory that straddles the intersection of international (United States and Canada) borders and provincial (Ontario and Quebec) boundaries on both banks of the St. Lawrence River. Although divided by an international border, the residents consider themselves to be one community. They maintain separate police forces due to jurisdictional issues and national laws. - Source: Wikipedia
