George O'Connor, Journey into Mohawk Country

Mohawk_country_fashions


Some examples of pre-contact Mohawk fashion. There was a lot of cultural diffusion in the early days, and I had to be careful not to depict the Mohawk and Oneida in incongruous attire. The Mohawk in particular were influenced by certain European cuts of jackets, and traded beaver pelts heavily for European shirts and glass beads, which they used to decorate their clothes.
