In 1804, the Gospel of John was translated and published, commissioned by the British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS), beginning the Bible Society work in Canada.

In 1880, the four Gospels were translated by Chief Sosé Onasakenrat of Kanesatake and published. They have been in use ever since and appear in this edition of the Bible.

1999 – 2014, a new project to translate the remaining books of the Bible began in Kanesatake and Kahnawake, Quebec. The Canadian Bible Society (CBS) published the team’s translations of 2 Corinthians (2001), Jonah (2002), Ruth (2005), Daniel (2005), Esther (2006), Proverbs (2007), and Genesis (2014).

In August 2023, Harvey Satewas Gabriel’s lifelong investment in his Mohawk language culminated in the publication, by CBS, of a complete translation of the Bible into Mohawk. 

The Canadian Bible Society hopes that this Bible will make a positive contribution to the life of the Mohawk church and to efforts to revitalize and teach the Mohawk language. This Bible is a literary resource, a source of both old and current words and expressions, and it contains a message about God’s love for all people that we hope will be a blessing to all Mohawk people.
