This is a competitive pow wow held on the largest First Nations Territory in Canada. Many food and craft vendors, and grand entry is not to be missed.

My wife and I, being huge lacrosse fans, (played since the early 70's) have come many times to the ILA (Iroquois Lacrosse Arena) to watch and support the Six Nations teams. This year, incidentally, the Arrows, Rebels and Chiefs all won their... More

The pow wow`s are really good but apart from that not a lot on the reserve for tourists. If its raining dont bother as it is very muddy. food is always good and the dancers and costumes are spectacular

Drove throught this part of Ontario and when we visited we noticed numerous rustic looking huts selling cigarettes. I was always under the impression that the Six Nations peoplw were proud of their culture but the numerous huts selling cigarettes certainly gave me a different impression of this area.

Went to the burger barn for a b-day party and the food was simply amazing, good prices, good quality,big portions and the service was friendly.
