Mohawk Nation

The Mohawk tribe is a member of the Iroquois Confederacy, a group of six Native American tribes that historically inhabited the northeastern region of North America.

The Mohawks were originally located in the Mohawk River Valley in upstate New York, but were forced to move to Canada during the 18th century as a result of conflicts with European settlers.

The Mohawks played a significant role in the history of North America, particularly during the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. They were allied with the British during both conflicts and were known for their fierce warrior tradition.

After the War, the Mohawks were forced to cede much of their land to the new United States government and many were forced to move to Canada, where they continue to live today.

The Mohawks have also had a significant impact on the history of Canada, with many Mohawk men serving in the Canadian military, including during World War I and World War II.

Today, the Mohawk tribe is federally recognized in the United States and has three reservations in New York state, and in Canada the Mohawks have a reserve on the South Shore of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec.
