The Six Nations peoples had served as faithful allies of the British Crown during the Seven Years War, the American Revolutionary War and the War of 1812; nevertheless, the actions of the British Indian Department lead to the loss of much of their lands and nearly destroyed their rich cultural heritage. This illustrated talk will trace the tragic story of this misplaced trust.
