Summary "Dr. Oronhyatekha was born in 1841 into Mohawk royalty on the Six Nations reserve. In his extraordinary lifetime, he became Chief of the Mohawks, and while known as Oxford-educated Peter Martin, he became a successful medical doctor and entrepreneur in Victorian Canada. His story is one that interweaves the messages of both cultures."-- Provided by publisher
