Spoonmouth mask; eyes made of tin, black horse hair, red with black.

History Of Use

Reproduction (made for sale to tourists) of a "Spoonmouth" False Face mask. According to the 1969 Iroqrafts tag, the maker's name (approx. spelling) was "Hadaje'grencta" (Grey Flying Cloud) from the Snipe clan of the Cayuga nation.


Removed from display in 1997. This mask was sold as a tourist item from 'Iroqrafts' (Iroquois Crafts & Arts store on the Six Nations Reserve) however many members of the community believe that any false face items should not be displayed to the public, so it is currently treated as culturally sensitive and not displayed.
