Onchiota, New York - July 4, 2008

From the outside, the museum building has some of the characteristics of the Indian long house used by the Iroquois Confederacy for centuries.

The Six Nations Indian Museum was opened 54 years ago by Ray Fadden, a Mohawk Indian school teacher. His son John ran the place until he retired last year.

"We have about 3,000 pieces. Most deal with the Six Nations. We have things from other cultures as well, like the Dakotas, Cherokee baskets," explains John Fadden.
