KANATSIOHAREKE Traditional Mohawk Indians Return to Their Ancestral Homeland. Hardcover with dust jacket; 164 pages; Size Approx. 7 1/4 X 10 1/4.
For over 200 years the tradition Mohawk people of the Iroquois Confederacy have held a dream in their hearts that someday they would return to the beautiful Mohawk Valley. These lands where they had their villages and an extensive agricultural society are rolling hills and forests along the waters of the Mohawk River in New York State. The wars and conflicts in the 1700s that came with the European invasion sent the Mohawks from their lands, their villages and the resting places of their ancestors. The dream and the prophecies of return continued through the decades.
The decades turned to centuries and then, in the midst of some of the most disruptive troubles experienced by the Mohawk people, a new hope grew that they could begin a trip back home; a return to the paths, the fields, the streams and the rivers of their ancestors. The support from Natives and non-Natives in the local area in New York and internationally has come in spiritual and material ways, and has helped sustain the Mohawk families who moved to this river valley. A spring on the hillside is fast-flowing and provides water for drinking and some hydro-electric power for their homes and workshops.
It is filled with hope; this place called Kanatsiohareke. (from the dust jacket flap) The book has a purple cloth binding with white lettering on the frot cover and spine; there are a couple of pictures in black and white; however, most of the pictures are in color.
