False Face Society Masks

The False Faces Society of the Iroquois had special powers over the winds, ill luck and illness affecting
the joints and shoulders, as well as toothaches, earaches, swelling and nosebleeds. Public and private
ceremonies were held at certain times of the year to drive out disease; amid dancing and chanting the sick
were cured by having ashes rubbed onto their heads or having hands laid on them. In return, the False Faces
demanded tobacco and hot corn mush.
