Brantford, Joseph Thayendanegea Brant. The Grand River, a Canadian Heritage River, has played an integral part in the development of the Brantford, Brant County, Six Nations and New Credit communities. In 1784, Captain Joseph Thayendanegea Brant, a Mohawk Chief, led the Six Nations people from upper New York State to the Grand River basin, a shallow crossing spot. Here, they made their village, which is now known as Brantford.
