Museum's Legends

Map to Six Nations Indian Museum

Depending on the number of visitors and circumstances a pictographic story belt will be used in the telling of a legend during a visit to the Six Nations Indian Museum. This feature has been present since the Museum's inception in the summer of 1954. The Museum's founder, Ray Fadden/Tehanetorens, was the initial lecturer and storyteller. His son, John, and grandson, David, have contributed their skills in these endeavors as well. It is conceded that Ray was the master story teller. On this page are images of the type of story told, and in this case it's the legend of the Monster Bear. Also shown is a photograph of Ray telling a story.
