Hiawatha and the Peacemaker

Hiawatha and the Peacemaker

 

 

 

 

 

On a empty battle field, Hiawatha, a brave Mohawk warrior had lost not only lost his wife but his three beautiful daughters. There was no sign of life except for Hiawatha.The once beautiful trees were now all black and ashen as if they were crying. There were no birds in sight and not a thing stirred or moved. All was killed by a evil chief called…..Tadodaho. He had no peace in his heart, it was like his heart was  made of stone.The sun was not as beautiful as before as it was beginning to set.                      

 

Now covered in wounds he limped towards the bare forest. Hiawatha lit a small fire and laid down. As though he was dreaming he stood up and saw a man know as the ancient peacemaker was rowing toward shore in a boat made of stone! He checked himself to make sure he wasn’t dreaming. It was all real! Just at that moment the peacemaker arrived at shore and was heading towards Hiawatha. What did the peacemaker want with Hiawatha? Then he remembered the peacemaker would only show up to people who have seen what sadness feels like.

Soon they arrived at the land of Cayuga. As Hiawatha and the Peacemaker made their way through the shallow water, they began to see people dressed in buffalo skin. When they reached shore the Cayuga chief came to greet them. After, the chief asked them why they were here. Hiawatha told him peace, righteousness, and power, all of the nations will become one nation. The Cayuga chief knew that Hiawatha was right, therefore he pulled out his boat and followed Hiawatha to the land of Seneca.

The peacemaker began to speak, he was now right in front of him now.I have come to you so that you can make peace in between the five tribes, you no longer need to fight to talk, but I want you to speak to talk.But all he could think of now was revenge. Suddenly Hiawatha felt calm, he saw that the peacemaker had a hand on him, it was probably….. Wait…. I think you have it, we should move along and make peace.Hiawatha could do nothing but follow the peacemaker to meet the Mohawk Chief.

 

 

There was an uncomfortable silence. After they had traveled about an hour's time he broke the silence. Hiawatha couldn’t do it. Tadodaho killed his wife and children! You have to do this I, the peacemaker will guide you to reunite the five tribes. The great lord has told me to help you, to persuade, to make peace between the five tribes. He saw the peace and bravery in your heart. He knew that you could do this so he sent me to help and guide you. “Fine”, said Hiawatha. Soon we were there at the land of the Mohawk. What have you come for? The Mohawk chief asked. The peacemaker put his hand on Hiawatha’s back, and as if he could read his mind he began to speak his words. Peace, righteousness, and power, all of the nations will become one nation. After they spoke the Mohawk chief still wouldn’t give in. So Hiawatha and the peacemaker traveled to the next tribe. The tribe Cayuga. So they set of in the stone boat.

 

 

So they traveled to the next tribe Oneida. The Oneida greeted them the same way as the Seneca Chief did. So the peacemaker placed his hand on Hiawatha’s shoulders and Hiawatha began to speak. Peace, righteousness, and power, all of the nations will become one nation. The Oneida chief wasn’t going to give up easily. So the peacemaker told him to tell the chief about the story of his wife and children. As soon as he was finished the Oneida chief told him he was going.

 

When they reached the land of Seneca, it was dark and as they reached shore, they could see soft flickering lights. All of a sudden they found themselves bound to a rock. The Seneca chief asked “what are you doing here in the middle of darkness?” Tell them your story said the Peacemaker.So he told them about the evil chief and his wife and children. After the Seneca chief slowly told his people to undo them. On his face he told them that he wouldn’t go with him but in his heart he knew that they were right. After a while he agreed to go with them. So the chief got out his boat and paddled along side them.




 

They traveled togeher as one nation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So they traveled to the next tribe Oneida. The Oneida greeted them the same way as the Seneca Chief did. So the peacemaker placed his hand on Hiawatha’s shoulders and Hiawatha began to speak. Peace, righteousness, and power, all of the nations will become one nation. The Oneida chief wasn’t going to give up easily. So the peacemaker told him to tell the chief about the story of his wife and children. As soon as he was finished the Oneida chief told him he was going.

 

                            They traveled together as one nation.

 

They traveled together as one nation.

Now with three tribes as one nation, they traveled to the land of Mohawk to persuade the Mohawk chief. Once they arrived at land with proof, the Clan

Mothers were surprised and a hint of happiness. “The message had already traveled to the evil chief…...Tadodaho” said the Mohawk chief. The Mohawk chief still would not approve. This time as an excuse he said that Tadodaho’s evilness is too great for us.  

 

If you do not believe me I, the Peacemaker will climb this tree and Hiawatha shall cut it down In will fall into the river, later you will find me downstream with no harm. So it happened as the Peacemaker told them. As the sun began to set the Mohawk chief finally gave in. Fine! I will go with you, but it will be your fault if there is another war. 

 

 

So they traveled unwillingly as one nation.

THE END

So they traveled unwillingly as one nation.

As they arrived at land a breeze began to blow. The Mohawk chief held back. The peacemaker asked why he was staying back. The Mohawk chief could do nothing but helplessly follow the Peacemaker. As they wandered deeper into the land of the evil chief they soon realized that someone or something was watching them. Then everything went black. After they soon found themselves tied to a gigantic boulder. The evil chief asked why they were here. He never had visitors before. There were snakes and daredevils dancing around the evil, evil chief. 

The peacemaker cautiously approached the chief and began mixing a very mysterious potion. The peacemaker handed it to Hiawatha and told him to feed it to the evil chief. Hiawatha started arguing that he could not feed it to the evil chief and that the evil chief could do it himself. The peacemaker said no more so Hiawatha started feeding the evil chief. As he started eating the potion the snakes started to slither out of him and the daredevils faded away. The sun began to set and as it did so the five tribes became one nation.
