    Forbidden Voice: Reflections of a Mohawk Indian
    Alma Greene (Gah-wonh-nos-doh), (First published by Hamlyn Publishers in 1972), 1997.

    Alma Greene, descended from a long line of Mohawk chieftains and the daughter of a Clan Mother, was recognized from early childhood as a natural healer. She grew up on a farm just outside the edge of the Grand River Lands in Ontario and wrote about her people's past and the contemporary events she witnessed, including the remedies practiced for generations by her forebears; the ceremonies that perpetuate the line of clan leader; the gods whom the Mohawks honour; the variety of their beliefs. She also expressed the Native people's disillusionment with Christianity, the imposition of the white man's world and the land claim deceptions. Dramatic illustrations.
