The Mohawk thrived for centuries in their lush homeland in what is now New York State. With the Oneida, the Onondaga, the Cayuga, and the Seneca, they shared a position of, enormous power as members of the mighty Iroquois Confederacy. These groups' substantial influence grew after non-Indians arrived in the Northeast and began to trade valuable European goods in exchange for animal furs. Allying themselves first to the Dutch and later to the British, the Mohawk initially were highly successful in the fur trade. But as their allies drew them into wars with other non-Indians, the Mohawk's population and power greatly diminished. By the end of the 18th century, they could no longer resist the white settlers overrunning their homeland. Some Mohawk chose to remain in New York, but most sought refuge in Canada. Today the Mohawk remain geographically. divided. Some live on the tribe's six Canadian reserves; others on the Akwesasne Reservation in New York; and still others in cities in Canada and the United States. Yet, in recent years, the tribe has joined together to battle to regain the homeland taken from them long ago. Loudly voicing their grievances in court and during protests, Mohawk leaders are among the most prominent advocates for Indians' rights. Size: Large Octavo. 112 pages.
