Historical Native Re-enactment Group

About UsOn-Gwe-Ho-Way Logo

The On-Gwe-Ho-Way group is dedicated to preserving the true and authentic history of the ancestors and the sacrifices they made to preserve a way of life. We teach the old ways while embracing all who come to join us in a good way. Diligence and safety—both on and off the battlefield—are combined in a light and fun atmosphere so that all joining us in our salute to a bygone era and our tribute to our native ancestors are made to feel welcome and appreciated as the individuals that they are.

On a regular basis we provide craft classes, sometimes with guest artisans, so that everyone in our group expands their knowledge in the old way of living. Our drum group pays vocal homage to the ancestors by singing and drumming in a respectful way to show and expand the understanding of our many songs.

These teachings allow each and every one of us as On-Gwe-Ho-Way (a person of Turtle Island) to appreciate a way of life that appeals in some way, shape or form, to everyone.  Come join us for an adventure that cuts through the mists of time. Niawen, Migwitch (Thank You).
