Abstract:

About the Caughnawaga Indian Reservation on the shore of St. Lawrence River, in Quebec, & about the members of the Caughnawaga Mohawks who have settled in Brooklyn. About a quarter of the Caughnawaga Mohawks spend more time in cities & towns all over the U.S. than they do on the reservation. The Brooklyn settlement had about 400 men, women, & children. Most of the Indians were bridge and building riveters. They had no fear of height and seemed immune to riveting noises. Their passion for roaming would make leave one job for another thousands of miles away. Includes an interview with Orvis Diabo, of the Brooklyn settlement, who, though he was longer is able to work loved New York and dreaded going back to the reservation.
