David Kanatawakhon, is a Turtle Clan Mohawk from the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte Territory, Tyendinaga. He has been actively involved in the teaching and retention of the Mohawk language since the early 1970s.

This dictionary is designed to assist students in learning the Mohawk language. One thousand commonly used words (i.e. nominal (nouns), verbs, adverbials, parts of speech, etc…) create the basis for this presentation, and when utilized, it should prove most useful as a course supplement, rather than a teaching text.

The book is intended to be user friendly. Each entry is provided with a syllabized presentation of the word, as well as an English interpretation. Most of the entries are provided with additional usages of the word and how it may be used in contextual situations. Each Mohawk entry is numbered which corresponds with a number provided in the English-Mohawk reference section. This will facilitate easy access to the Mohawk section from the English-Mohawk listing.

The book is presented in a soft-covered format, perfect binding, 150 pages in length, 61/2 X 91/2 inches in size, with a table of contents at the front, followed by a pronunciation guide, a short grammar section relevant to nominal use, the Mohawk vocabulary listing, with the English- Mohawk index at the back,
