Six Nations Bingo Hall

Over 40 years ago, Six Nations Bingo was hosted in our old community hall. Back then, people used to gather at the community hall only on Monday nights for a 7pm evening session. People used to bring cow corn niblets to use instead of bingo chips. A time when there were no special jackpots and absolutely no such thing as a ‘progressive’ jackpot. A time when $40 was a HUGE cash prize.

Community members operated bingo by volunteers raising money for things such as sports teams fundraising to travel for championships Canada wide. A rather fine example to display how Six Nations Bingo operations have grown from very strong roots.
