Temporary exhibit

Six Strings

June 1 - 30, 2022

This exhibit showcases elements of traditional Mohawk way of life in the year 1800, centred on a compelling, revealing and true account of how the Mohawk people conducted their own system of justice long before the Indian Act, when they were obliged to abide by the British colonial court system. Six Strings offers a unique glimpse into the lives of the Mohawk people and their community and provides insights as to how their complex interactions with the changing world around them affected their future. 

This exhibit can be viewed for the month of June only. Presented by Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na Language and Cultural Centre.  

On June 7th, this exhibit opens with a screening of the short documentary “Six Strings” and followed with a conversation with  Callie Hill, Executive Director of Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na Language and Cultural Centre.
