The Coming of the Mohawks

At the Tyendinaga Mohawk Reservation, near the city of Deseronto, Ontario Canada, is a monument erected in honor of the Mohawks. The inscription reads as follows: “The coming of the Mohawks – Commemorating the arrival here on the 22nd of May, 1784, under leadership of Chiefs, John Deserontou, Aaron Hill, and Isaac Hill, of a band of loyal Mohawks, one of the nations of the Iroquois Confederacy expelled from their homes in the Mohawk Valley, for their fidelity to the Empire.”

Leaving Thandinaga, the Mohawks turned their faces north and soon were at their homes on the Akwesasne ‘St. Regis’ Mohawk Reservation in Northern New York State.
