Iroquois on Fire: A Voice from the Mohawk Nation is an insider's perspective on the struggles of the Six Nations Iroquois to maintain their democracy based on the Great Law of Peace. Akwesasne Mohawk journalist Doug George writes with clarity and honesty about the issues faced by his community and other contemporary Six Nations communities to maintain their lands and their families within the context of federal interference, land use/claims, political activism, and organized crime. He takes readers through the complex history of the Six Nations Iroquois to the tumultuous times of the past twenty years. Topics covered include origins, land claims, Oneida, Oka, Ray Fadden, trade and commerce, and the warrior society.
