Ohsweken Village – Six Nations Reserve

One of the coolest things about living in North America is the proximity to native reserves. I’ve always loved visiting the reserves because there is a distinct difference in culture there. They have their own police forces and building styles, and it’s very cool to see the way old native influences have mixed with today’s developments. The following pictures are from my visit to Ohsweken Village on the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation Indian reserve near Brantford, Ontario. There’s this awesome store called Iroqrafts that sells amazing First Nations crafts and materials like the ones you’ll see below!

I kept walking past the cow skulls and I couldn’t resist them – I had to buy one! It’s currently sitting in my bedroom awaiting a coat of primer before I paint it!
