History Of Kahnawake | Links To Biographical Info | Pt I (A-C)

This is Part I (A-C) of what will be a regularly-updated collection of links to online information about individuals who have lived in, passed through or been in some way connected to the history of Kahnawake.

If you are a newcomer to historical research, please remember that, as Winston Churchill once said: “history is written by the victors”. Much of the information in these links is derived from 19th century documents which were written from a European Christian perspective. The original recounts, in particular, are frequently patronizing and at times racist, so while they hold much of value they should be read with a critical mind!
