This celebrated Mohawk chief of Canajoharie Castle and Johnson Hall grew up in the Mohawk Valley. He received his baptism of fire at the battle of Lake George in 1755. He served with Sir William Johnson in the Niagara expedition of 1759 and fought in Pontiac's uprising of 1763. He and his Mohawks actively supported the British during the American Revolution. His vision of a new social and economic order to protect the Indian way of life vanished at the Sandusky Council after the war. He then led his people to Upper Canada where they settled on the Grand River. He died at Wellington Square, now Burlington, Ontario.
Ce grand chef agnier de Canajoharie Castle et Johnson Hall grandit dans la vallée des Agniers. Il reçut le baptême du feu à la bataille du lac George en 1755. Membre de l'expédition de Niagara en 1759 conduite par sir William Johnson, il se rangea du côté des Britanniques lors du soulèvement de Pontiac en 1763. Il fit de même durant la Révolution américaine. Après la guerre, le nouvel ordre social qu'il proposa pour protéger le mode de vie indien fut rejeté par le conseil de Sandusky. Il conduisit les Agniers, leurs alliés et ses autres partisans au Canada et s'installa à la rivière Grande. Il est décédé à Wellington Square, maintenant Burlington, Ontario.
