Mohawk Nation News "I am Dekanawida"


I AM DEKANAWIDA




MNN. Feb. 23, 2014. Our messenger, Dekanawida, told us this story about the White, Red and Black Serpents just before he left us.  Dekanawida referred to them as serpents because they slither underneath society like a serpent in the grass.
"I am Dekanawida. With the statesmen of the League of 5 Nations, I plant the Tree of Great Peace".
