Onondaga distance runner Tom Longboat was born in Ohsweken, Ont., on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve. Longboat was fantastically popular in his time, and was one of Canada’s first international sports heroes. He won the Boston Marathon in record time in 1907, and volunteered as a dispatch runner in World War I.
