Hiawatha: The Man Who Stopped The Iroquois’ Bloody Tribal Wars | 1491 |

History Documentaries

In the 12th century, the five Iroquois nations were locked in a bloody cycle of revenge. Human relations had broken down to the point of fratricide and cannibalism. Hiawatha was a Mohawk leader who lost his wife and children in the violence. But with the guidance of Dekanawidah, The Great Peacemaker, Hiawatha turned his grief into forgiveness. Hiawatha and The Peacemaker shared their vision of forgiveness until the warring nations found peace in togetherness. Together, they founded the Iroquois Confederacy; a nation that stands strong today.
