Iroquois Corn Husk Masks

Like many Native American arts and crafts, the traditional corn husk masks are becoming more difficult to obtain with each passing year.  Occasionally, I find a few for sale at either the Six Nations Reservation in Ontario or at The Kahnawake Mohawk Reservation south of Montreal.  When I do, I buy every one I can get.

XL Corn Husk Mask

This is an extremely rare mask that I believe was made by a Seneca man from Akwasasne.  I purchased this mask at the Kahnawake reservation in Quebec from a reputable Mohawk dealer.  There are very few of these jumbo masks made anymore.  This one is hanging on my wall at home in Toronto, Ontario.  The mask is not signed.  In the picture to the left, the mask appears to be somewhat crossed-eyed.  This is easily fixed by placing an empty Coke can behind the eyes as in the picture above.

XL Corn Husk Mask

I have acquired a second XL corn husk mask that is located in the Niagara Falls, New York warehouse.  This mask was purchased from the Hill family of Six Nations in Ontario at an estate sale.  I bought it from a well known collector of Iroquois art in upstate New York.
