Ganienkeh Territory


Traveling with Alba in the north country I passed this collection of red colors and stopped to start a painting. The sign says it was repossessed land since 50,000 BC.    Huh?                          It’s one of the few successful repossessions of Indian land in the USA and is part of the Mohawk nation territory once again.    On our visiting Bahais in the northern part of the state note…we had been in contact with Jaime in Watertown but so far unable to meet him. Turns out he stayed at our family homestead last night in Ithaca with his 13 year old son Andre. They travel to play hockey.  He’s from the Mohawk nation, wolf clan and born on the Canadian side. They are a very sweet family. Small world is all I can say.     This one is 5.9″ x 11.8″ and uses pencil, watercolor and gouache on cotton paper.   $ 75 if unframed.

      1. I live near the Hogansburg-Akwesasne Mohawks. They love their lacrosse and hockey. I love their shops and restaurants. If you had taken the Devils Den Road from the main highway where you created that beautiful painting, you would have seen the Ganienkeh Bingo Hall, smoke shop, and gas station. Further on is the hamlet of Altona, and there is a huge derelict power house. It resembles a Gothic castle of sorts. That would make a good subject for your talent. ✌
