Traditional Mohawk Speaker
Wolf is a Mohawk, part of the Iroquoian Six Nations. He has done numerous lectures on the ways of the Iroquois. He was formerly one of the interpreters teaching at the 17th century longhouse village called Kanata in Brantford, Ontario. He is also part of the touring British Native Allies historical re-enactment group that performs in Ontario and the United States. Wolf has also assisted and role played in many documentaries of the Iroquois people and their history.
Wolf does not teach the “Pan Indian” culture saturated by Hollywood. Authenticity and preservation of traditional Iroquoian culture is very important to him. Wolf is also very knowledgeable on native treaties. He also has an interesting selection of furs, artifacts and teaching aids to visually enhance a learning experience with him.
Wolf has excellent communication skills and is easy to listen to. His blend of sincerity, integrity and humour enriches the moment. He is skilled at group interaction... his presentations offer a refreshing outlook with gainful insight. Wolf is available to speak year round.
