The Mohegan Storey Clan of
was very young, my grandfather Tall Fox,
the Sachem of a tiny group of
people in this area for many years,
held his meetings at this small church near our home.
This church and these
meetings were where the
Mohegan Elders gave me most
of my teachings.
My People also participated in a very special Ceremony
called a sweat.
This Ceremony and the events that took place during
it, were sacred
and a carefully guarded part of our Traditional
The Sweat Ceremony
The Mohegan Church
We are the Storey Clan, descendants of the Mohegans,
an Algonquin speaking Nation of Turtle Island
and Uncas, the first Sachem of the Mohegans

peace from the Creator.
The Algonquin speaking Nations were the largest group
of Native or Indigenous peoples
along the Eastern Coast
of what is today the United States
We are also descendents of Samson Occum,
a Mohegan Preacher who was an ancestor of
both Mary Tracy Fielding Storey and

We are here to
teach the correct story of
the Native Peoples of Turtle Island,
especially the true story of Uncas,
who was the Sachem of the
Mohegan people when the European
settlers arrived here.
Many years ago
when I was a child in training, I was told by my
Mohegan Elders of the true name of our
Over the Centuries, his name had
been changed repeatedly by outsiders
who had no idea how to
pronounce his real name, which was Poquaum,
which then became Unkas and was
eventually changed to Uncas.
These changes were made for the
convenience of ones who had no right to do so.
The real name of our tribe, our people, when they left
the Great Lakes
and the Mohicans, was Mohegins.
After first contact,
this was changed to Mouhegans and after the elimination
of the Pequots, Sachem Uncas
changed the name back to Mohegins.
The English changed the name
again to what is today, Mohegans.
is named for Sachem Uncas,
the first Sachem of
the Mohegan people.
We honor and follow our Creator, the Great Spirit,
Father Sky and Mother Earth.
