Welcome to Quinte Mohawk

Welcome to Quinte Mohawk

Yeah! We actually arrived at the reserve and we didn’t get lost! And we may have picked up a loose hubcap on the side of the road to add to our set, but that’s another story.

Here’s the thing about Quinte Mohawk; not only do they have some of the best helpers out there, they also have the best in school murals I have ever seen. All around the upper walls of their gym was covered, and multiple murals were painted along the walls of the hallway. And all of them done in brilliant colours. (I’m a fan of colourful – looking at you John William Waterhouse.)

I tried to snap as many pictures as I could in the few moments that I had. I wish I knew what they all meant. I know some depict the ancient ways and beliefs, but to get a more detailed description would take one much more knowledgeable than I.

You were a great audience Quinte – and I nearly laughed when I member of the audience said ‘really?’ When my character proclaimed she was hungry for spaghettios. I guess not everyone likes spaghettios.
