Telling the story of Native People with pigment
David Fadden is an artist from Onchiota, New York. He is a member of the Wolf Clan of the Mohawk Tribe, one of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. Dave is known for his semi-abstract portraiture of Native Americans using a mosaic technique.
Dave also operates The Six Nations Museum in Onchiota, New York founded by his grandfather, Ray Fadden in 1954. Its design reflects the architecture of a traditional Haudenosaunee (Six Iroquois Nations Confederacy) bark house. The museum has over 3,000 artifacts with an emphasis on the Six Nations tribes.
