Who are we?


scroll3

We are the last of the Royal Family.

Please be advised we have nothing to do with a casino

we never have, nor will we, it is against our belief,

of  our ancestors and Creator (Kiehtan).

Shechaim Ohjieshan (Vulpsune) Tallfox my Grandfather,

turned his back and this tribe from any type of gambling

and called it stealing from the people.

We are sorry to read that many people are having problems

with this new group calling its self a Mohegan Nation,

a casino Indian group.

However, we must ask you to please write to their website

for your information about them?

Yes, this tribe The Mohiigans (Maïngan – Yáw – meaning Wolf-People),

Has been around a very long time and started when our first leader, Shechaim Ohjieshan Unkas, turned his back on his ‘War Monger Cousin’

A few years before they were completely destroyed in wars!

And settles in Uncasvillage.

(Taw-but-ni) Thank-you.

We are the Storey Clan, descendants of the Mohiigan an Algonquin Speaking American Native people of Turtle Island and Uncas, the first Sachem of the Mohiigan’s.

As Sachem Uncas changed the name from Pequot back to  Monheags (Mohiigan) and the Early European settlers again misspelled it to become Mohegan.

The Algonquin speaking people were the largest group of American Native or indigenous peoples along the Eastern coast of what is today known as the United States.

We are also descendants of Samson Occum an American native preacher and an ancestor of both Mary Tracy Fielding Storey and Bright Star, Alice Storey.

Our home land is in Uncasvillage and is now called Uncasville, Connecticut, named for Sachem Uncas, the first Sachem of the Mohiigan people. We the Storey clan honor and follow our Creator (Kiehtan), the Great Spirit, Father Sky and Mother Earth.

Because we now represent many nations and people we choose to be known as the

Turtle Island Storey Clan.

It has come to our attention that people wish to profit from our writings?

Donna,( tahtonka.com) trained 8 years in college about indigenous people and has been working closely with our attorneys making sure that the rights to write and any/all would be income gets to our indigenous people.

One is always allowed to enjoy the writings, re-blog with credit, writing to profit is a direct insult to our ancestors.
