The Mohawk people greeted us like we were family. We sat down in a circle and The Chief spoke: “Why have you come here?” he said. The Peacemaker then started explaining the Great Law. I noticed that he had his hand on my shoulder and was speaking fluently.
The Chief nodded and asked, “Why should we trust you?” I started to worry that everything was not going well as I planned. Next, the Peacemaker said, “The Great law is more powerful than any man. Please trust us with our word.” “Agreed,” said the Mohawk Chief. And we were off.
We traveled to the land of the Cayuga Tribe and for each tribe, we picked up the chief and traveled away.
