A Primer, for the Use of the Mohawk Children...
London: C. Buckton, 1786.
|This popular primer was written by Daniel Claus, a German immigrant whose lengthy residence among the Mohawks as a British military officer and interpreter during the mid-18th century enabled him to attain proficiency in the Mohawk language. After the American Revolution, and when this bilingual edition of catechisms and prayers was published, Claus supervised the relocation of many Six Nations Iroquois to Upper Canada.|
