Indigenous Communities in Canada Mohawk Nation

Author: Delores Nixon

“Indigenous Communities in Canada: Mohawk Nation is an elementary level information book about the past and present-day culture and history of the Woodland people known as the Mohawk. They call themselves Kanien’keha:ka, meaning “People of the Flint”. They are part of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and today they reside mainly in Ontario and Quebec. Influenced by the climate and land along the Mohawk River, this Nation created complex societies organized around matriarchal clan families. The text uses colour images and simple content that introduces primary and junior level students to the family, cultural traditions, and daily life of these remarkable people.”
