#OnThisDate 1775, “Listen, my children, and you will hear, Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Paul Revere and Longfellow’s poem capture the myths of history. Museums, like ours, work to break through those myths to try and tell real, true stories. Like of this saddle, on display at the 1883 Dillon Schoolhouse Museum, used by a rancher in the county 100 years after Paul Revere’s Ride. #SummitPast

On July 15th at 2pm Toronto-based storyteller Falen Johnson will be at the Iroquois Indian Museum to share her compelling narratives. Sometimes comedic, sometimes difficult, her stories take stock of what it truly means to be Indigenous in both historical and today’s context.

An actor, playwright, and crafter of contemporary tales for adults, Falen is Mohawk & Tuscarora originally from Six Nations. In contrast to traditional Haudenosaunee stories, Falen’s thought-provoking expressions are woven from her experiences living in Six Nations and Toronto. Her work explores subjects ranging from dating outside color lines, land disposition, blood quantum, to stereotypes. A graduate of George Brown Theatre School, her credits include: Salt Baby, The Only Good Indian with Turtle Gals Performance Ensemble, The Triple Truth, Savage, Strong Medicine, Death of a Chief, A Very Polite Genocide, and Tombs of the Vanishing Indian. Falen has also been featured on The Moth Radio Hour.

Interested in attending this event? Our address is 324 Caverns Rd. Howes Cave, NY 12092.
