Summary

The word mohawk means many things to different people: a river, a valley, a tribe, even a type of haircut. Just as Sioux conjures up an image of the Great Plains, horses, and war bonnets, the name Mohawk often summons images of the Northeast Woodland, gushing streams, and the tomahawk. In recent times, the Mohawk have added iron and steel work to their traditional art of basket weaving, and one is as likely to find a Mohawk on the streets of Manhattan or Montreal as in the woodlands. Like other Native American tribes, their lives were disrupted forever when Europeans arrived in the 17th century. Today the tribe continues to struggle to hold on to their land and traditions. Read about the Mohawk in this new title, complete with vivid photographs, an engaging narrative, and helpful reference features.
