It was nightfall by the time we reached the land of the Seneca people. We we greeted by 15 warriors that looked unfriendly. Tying us to ropes, the warriors brought us before the Seneca chief.
“What do you want? And why is it that approach us in the darkness? He boomed.
I spoke my words confidently and with pride.
The Seneca chief looked at me with a smile. “We take your offer for peace, but how do you plan to defeat Tadodaho?” He asked
The peacemaker looked at me worried of what I was going to say and how I was going to say it.
“We will not kill Tadodaho,” I said. “ We will heal him from the evil sickness that he has and help him become a better man,” I told the chief. I watched him walk past me giving me a firm handshake.
“Agreed, but you must rest first,” he said calmly. Showing us to a tipi, I fell asleep before I could react.

The next day, wе рrocеded back to the Mohawk. I hoped they would join us in our journey. I wasn’t ready to quit when we have reached this far. Before we even approached the land, we saw the Mohawk chief paddle to us. I assumed that he was coming with us which pleased me.
Together we paddled as 4 nations
