Children of the Longhouse

Children of the Longhouse
Bruchac, Joseph

When Ohkwa'ri overhears a group of older boys planning a raid on a neighboring village, he immediately tells his Mohawk elders. He has done the right thing, but he has also made enemies. Grabber and his friends will do anything they can to hurt him, especially during the village-wide game of Tekwaarathon (lacrosse). Ohkwa'ri believes in the path of peace, but can peaceful ways work against Grabber's wrath? "An exciting story that also offers an in-depth look at Native American life centuries ago." -- Kirkus Reviews 


Eleven-year-old Ohkwa'ri and his sister must make peace in their Mohawk village during the late 1400s.
