*Hiawatha, who was also known by the names Ayenwathaaa and Aiionwatha, was a pre-colonial Native American leader and chief of the Onondaga tribe. He taught navigation, medicine, arts and agriculture and has been featured in many works of literature, including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's 'Song of Hiawatha' (1855).


** These materials were used by the Onondagas, the Mohawks, the Cayugas and other times to construct bark homes known as ganoñhsésgeh, or longhouses.
