Kanien'Keha' Okara'Shon:'A. Mohawk Stories.
Horne, Josephine; And Others
This volume is intended as an addition to the limited resources available to Mohawk language teachers. The 95 legends, histories, anecdotes, omens, and poetry collected in this volume were written by Mohawk teachers from Caughnawaga and Oka, and have been handed down from generation to generation to form part of the Mohawk cultural heritage. Because they are intended primarily for young people beginning their study of the language, the second section contains translations of the stories. These are of two kinds: a word by word translation in English appears directly under the Mohawk line; and a "retelling" appears in English at the bottom of each page. As every legend has several versions, the ones presented here are not considered any more definitive than any other. (Author/AM)
