"That is not our way, to set yourself apart and talk about who you are and what you've done. You let your life speak for you. With the Mohawk people, wisdom is how you live and how you interpret what your mother and father, what your grandmothers and grandfathers have told you about this world - and then how you interpret that into the fact of living every day." --Tom Porter, MOHAWK

Joseph Brant, born in 1742, was a Mohawk chief who helped gain Indian support for the British in the French & Indian War between 1754 & 1763. From 1763 to 1776, Brant & his tribe assisted the British in the American Revolution by attacking the American settlers. After the Revolution, unable to negotiate a land settlement with the American government, Brant obtained a land grant in Canada & he & his followers settled in the area now known as Brantford, Ontario.
