Children of theChildren of the Longhouse

Author: Joseph Bruchac

160 pages, paperback


He has made powerful enemies. Can he face them on the playing field? When Ohkwa'ri overhears a group of older boys planning a raid, he immediately tells the elders of his Mohawk village. He knows he has done the right thing—but he has also made enemies. Grabber and his friends will do anything they can to hurt Ohkwa'ri, especially during the village-wide brutal game of lacrosse, or Tekwaarathon. 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 Review  Appropriate for ages 8-12.
