In late September, I visited the Six Nations Indian museum in Onchiota because owner Dave Fadden was the featured Trailblazer in the November/December issue of the Explorer. Below is a description of the museum that appears on its website.

“The Six Nations Indian Museum provides for the viewing of 3000-plus artifacts with an emphasis on the culture of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy (Haudenosaunee). The Six Nations are: Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca and Tuscarora. The museum features story telling lectures; gift shop carries Mohawk baskets, beadwork, books, t-shirts, silver jewelry, and acrylic paintings that reflects Six Nations culture.”
