Records indicate a connection to the Mohawk Lodge Indian Store in Clinton, OK. The American Indian craft store's origin dates to Colony, Okla., in 1892, when it was started by the Dutch Reform Church of New York to create a way for local Indians to sell their wares. In fact, a small house next door to the current business in Clinton is the original meeting house in Colony.
Mohawk Lodge moved to Watonga, Okla., in 1907, then later to Clinton.
The business was purchased by M.B. Moore, a Creek Indian, not long after it moved to Clinton. After that, it was owned by Nellie Stevens, who was part Comanche and part Cherokee, for another 30 years.
