" Without Tehanetorens Would Akwesasne Exist " is how Doug George Kanentiio
pays tribute to the man he calls " a Real Human Being " , a man whose Spirit was too Humble to accept awards for his work. Ray Fadden Tehanetorens
as described in this Tribute, lived his life teaching and inspiring new generations, reawakening their inner voice to listen and follow the Teachings of their Ancestors. Taking away shame and degredation by replacing the "lost" ones with the great Wisdom of their Cultural Heritage.
my heart is full for being allowed a glimpse into the life of Ray Fadden Tehanetorens. May the Mohawk Nation Celebrate his Life of Leadership, Love for His People and His Country, and All the Great and Wonderful Wisdom He has Given and left behind. May all future generations know his name and follow his example.

'ahe hee ho zho' cousin for sharing . . . . . . .
