Our Vision

The Tribes Hill Heritage Center is an educational facility, where children and adults can learn about and experience Native American culture and history as well as the history of the Mohawk Valley. The center’s vision includes a multi-building facility on 55 acres of land in Montgomery County, NY. Activities will include the teaching of land conservation, history, music, dance, ecology, and sales of crafts, both Native American and regional artistic endeavors.

The organization’s hope is to boost the local economy with increased tourism, provide leather-working and other marketable skills to local people, while sustaining itself through craft, art, and food sales and usage fees. The first buildings proposed are: a leather stocking building, an “old town” (various settler style shops), and Native American vendors on site in the Powwow Grounds with demonstration dancing, as well as a display building of Native American arts and crafts. Much more is planned for the future!
