Description

Portrait of Ahyouwaighs, chief of the Six Nations, from "History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs," by Thomas L. McKenney and James Hall, published in 1854. The Six Nations was a confederacy of Iroquois tribes that included the Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas, Cayugas, Senecas and Tuscaroras. According to the McKenney and Hall book, Ahyouwaighs was born in 1794 as the youngest son of Thayendanegea, chief of the Mohawks, and Catherine Brant. He also went by the English name John Brant, and died of cholera in the 1830s.
