Encyclopedia > Six Nations of the Grand River

Six Nations of the Grand River is the name applied to two contiguous Indian reserves southeast of Brantford, Ontario, Canada – Six Nations reserve no. 40 and Glebe Farm reserve no. 40B. The original reserve was granted to Joseph Brant and his Iroquois followers in 1784 in appreciation of their support in the American Revolution. They later welcomed a group of Delawares to the reserve. The current reserves encompass 184.7 sq km (71 sq. mi.), all but 0.4 sq km in Six Nations reserve no. 40.
