Mohawk and Mohican


For years, the Red Indian had been ashamed of his tatty, old teepee. It was full of patches and holes, wripped and torn in places – hidden by the bushes on the reservation behind all the other teepees. The stitching had come undone and you could easily see the sky where the camp fire had burned a gaping hole through the cowskin. For years, the Red Indian longed for a replacement. He worked hard on the reservation, planting maize and fishing for the village elders until he saved up enough to buy a new one. It had taken the Red Indian ages to decide which was the best teepee to buy in the camping shop. There was a varied selection to chose from … red or yellow, blue or green … purple or pink with velcro, zip fasteners or buttons. Old Warrior Mohican had advised him on the best one to keep his squaw happy and how to keep an eye on the young red indians outside playing in the bullrushes. He always wanted a new teepee just like this model. The Red Indian’s New Teepee was quite a sight to behold – it stuck out among all the other teepees on the reservation as the tallest, cleanest and most colourful teepee to behold – there was room for three sleeping mats, a fireplace and the new teepee even had a fitted kitchen where the Red Indian cooked fish with spears, eggs and plants gathered along the coast, caribou and seals that he had hunted in the day. The wardrobe in the Red Indian’s new teepee was full of long, poncho – like cloaks, mittens and headdresses. Outside the door, the Red Indian placed his beaded moccasins and a battle flag flew from the roof.
