Hiawatha, a Native American legend, is known as the spokesperson for The Great Peacemaker, Dekanawidah. Dekanawidah was the creator of The Great Law of Peace, a law that gathered and bound all Iroquois Confederacy together, first in oral tradition only, but eventually the decree was written with Native American symbols on wampum belts. This book is an introduction to the life and work of Hiawatha whose peaceful advocacy and education inspired songs, books and folklore. It contains original artwork, historical context of the story, recounts folktales from her diverse culture, and defines words unique to the story.
