Backwoods in northern NY

Driving through some backwoods territory in northern NY this fall, I got a little lost and drove through Onchiota, where the Iroquois Six Nations Indian Museum is located (but unfortunately wasn’t open at the time).

Pretty tree near Onchiota

The six Iroquois nations include the Mohawk, Seneca, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, and Tuscarora.  I thought (mistakenly) that Mohawks made up the Haudenosaunee, but I learned in fact that Haudenosanee represents all six nations.  Now that I think about it, duh, Akwesasne is the term for what used to be called the St. Regis Mohawks near where I live.

There were a bunch of political signs along the road there, as well as this White House for Bill and Hillary Clinton.
