I'm dreaming of a Retro Xmas

Thrift store finds, love the 60-70's Sears Santa.


Beck made this great bird wreath from some stuff we picked up at a craft store close out and a branch from the yard.

So close

This one was just outside my bow range this morning but he walked right up to where Bob was sitting. Bob's father in law got a nice 8 pointer the day before. Now it's my turn!

The best part of my trip

I want to thank Uncle Larry for helping me get my official Tribal Card. I am now not only enrolled on the Tribal Roll but I can prove that I am a Mohawk Indian. I am so excited to have gotten the opportunity to get my card.

My Great Uncle Andy

The American Legion on the reservation was named after my Great Uncle Andy.

My Grandfather

He is also buried with the rest of the family in the plot.

My great grandparents

They are buried in a beautiful spot on the reservation in a Cook plot.

Mohawk Art

Carved elk antler, beadwork and amazing basket weaving done by the Mohawks.

Native American headdresses

The Mohawk headdress has 3 feathers up and is on the top left as well as the bottom shelf. The other headdresses are from the other nations across NY such as the Seneca's and Onandaga's Native Americans.

Mohawk Clans


Cornwall Island

This is the bridge to Cornwall island.

Mohawk Stop Sign

On the reservation the signs are in Mohawk.

Uncle Larry and my niece Katrina

I was able to take a trip to the St Regis Mohawk Reservation through work. My family was kind enough to let me stay with them and give me a great tour of the Reservation.

There's one!

But it was just a fawn and too small to shoot.
