  • Mohawk Nation's Great Teacher Passes Into the Spirit World

    By Doug George Kanentiio
    News From Indian Country

    Without Tehanetorens Would Akwesasne Exist?

    On November 14 Ray Fadden-Tehanetorens, 98, left this world to begin his journey along the stars back to the Creator's land, a place of living light where we will be embraced by those who have gone on before. His leaving means we will no longer have his counsel.

    His voice has been taken from us, we must make it through this life without his wisdom or his words of encouragement. He was, without doubt, one of the great human beings of our history, a true onkwehonwe who fulfilled his duties with honour.

    Tehanetorens adhered to the ancient Mohawk teaching which instructs us to leave our camp, our home, this life better than when we found it.
