Before there were the Six Nations, there were only the Five – the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca, who all lived between the Hudson and Genesee rivers in what is now New York State. The Five Nations knew little of the Tuscarora people, who lived far to the south, in what is today North Carolina.

Two centuries after the British and United States squared off at the War of 1812 Battle of Queenston Heights, the Native American allies of the two sides were remembered Sunday as the Landscape of Nations was unveiled in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Mike Desmond was there for the first viewings of the Six Nations and Native Allies Commemorative Memorial.
