The Little Falls Historical Society Museum

Native American Exhibit

Few Little Falls residents grow up without reading and hearing about the role played by local Native Americans during our Colonial Era and the Revolutionary War.

Unfortunately, the stories that we are most familiar with portray local Indians as mere savages, bent on revenge against Mohawk Valley patriots seeking independence from England.

Closer examination reveals a more complex Native American role in early American history. The Little Falls Historical Society Museum focuses on this complexity, with particular emphasis on the contributions made by the Iroquois Confederacy to our democratic process and to environmental awareness.
