Tehanetorens

Tehanetorens–Ray Fadden was a teacher and influential figure among the Mohawks of Akwesasne. The Mohawk Nation adopted him into the Mohawk wolf clan and gave him the name Tehanetorens, which has been translated as “He Walks through the Pines.” In 1930, Ray became one of the first teachers at the St. Regis Mohawk School in Hogansburg, New York. He published a series of articles that detailed the many contributions the North American Indian had made to modern civilization, ranging from technological innovations to foodstuffs and even democratic traditions. Ray passed away in November 2008, at the age of 98.
