Brantford is home to the oldest surviving church in Ontario. There is so much historical importance that the tiny Chapel of the Mohawks holds.

This 235-year-old Protestant church is the only surviving building from the original Mohawk village that once sat on the Grand River’s picturesque shores. And the eight magnificent stained glass windows inside tell the rich history of the Six Nations community in vivid colour.

The stories told in the glass cover centuries. They flow right up to the days of the British colonization and the introduction of the residential school system. These paintings pass right up through to the 1960s when the windows were built and installed. The stories highlight the victories of the Six Nations communities without glossing over the struggles. I couldn’t think of a better way to introduce ourselves to the rich Indigenous history of Ontario.
