Although Hiawatha was a real man, he was mostly known for his legend. Future generations would know of him through an 1855 epic poem called The Song of Hiawatha by Longfellow. In the stories of Hiawatha, we learn that he was born in the Onondaga tribe. His mother was an Onondagan and loved her son. She believed he would be a strong and great hunter. Hiawatha soon became a husband, and became a father to many daughters. His wife and daughters were killed from an opposing enemy (Tadodaho) leaving Hiawatha grief-stricken. Hiawatha is noted for his speaking skills and message of peace. He was a follower of the Great Peacemaker (Dekanawidah), a Huron prophet and spiritual leader who proposed the unification of the Iroquois peoples, who shared common ancestry and similar languages,(Submitted on September 26, 2021, by James Hulse of Medina, Texas.)
