"Do you think you help us by bidding us forget our blood? by teaching us to cast off all memory of our high ideals and our glorious past? I am an Indian. My pen and my life I devote to the memory of my own people. Forget that I was Pauline Johnson, but remember always that I was Tekahionwake, the Mohawk that humbly aspired to be the saga singer of her people, the bard of the noblest folk the world has ever seen, the sad historian of her own heroic race. " - Tekahionwake, Mohawk First Nation

At the intersection of Chiefswood Road and Highway 54, along the edge of Six Nations, is a grand two-storey white house with green shutters, white lace curtains and a wooden extension. It stands between the banks of the Grand River and a main highway, a sentinel between two worlds.
