The book, edited by Carl Benn PhD, presents the story of John Norton, or Teyoninhokarawen, an important war chief and diplomatic figure among the Grand River Haudenosaunee (or Six Nations Iroquois) in Upper Canada. He saw more action during the War of 1812 than almost anyone else. Norton’s memoir describes the fighting, the stresses suffered by Indigenous peoples, and the complex relationships between the Haudenosaunee and both their British allies and other First Nations communities.
