Plaque Text

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.
