Ohsweken

Trip Planner Canada  /  Ontario  /  Ohsweken
Ohsweken, is a village on the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation Indian reserve near Brantford, Ontario, Canada. Approximately 300 of the 2,700 homes on the reserve are in Ohsweken, and it is the site of the reserve governmental and administrative offices.HistoryFrom approximately 1840 to 1865, the Six Nations Confederacy council met in a log building near Middleport, ON. In 1856, against protests from the Onondaga chiefs, a strong-willed superintendent from the Indian Department, Jasper T. Gilkison, established a council building in what is present day Ohsweken, about 6 km south-west of Middleport. Gilkison later retired in 1891 under pressure from the prime minister for incompetence. Though the Onondaga chiefs argued that they should establish their own center of government, the village of Ohsweken quickly developed in the surrounding area.PlacesVeterans’ ParkThis park is at the corner of Fourth Line Road and Chiefswood Road. It features The Six Nations-Mississauga War Memorial which commemorates the 200 First Nations soldiers who were killed during World War II. The soldiers fought in Dieppe, France, Hong Kong, and were a part of the Normandy Invasion.Gaylord Powless ArenaThe Gaylord Powless Arena seats 648 with room for 200 standing.
