E. Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake ...
Tales of a Mohawk Princess Poet
her story and her works
“I am an Indian. My pen and my life I devote to the memory of my own people. Forget that I was Pauline Johnson, but remember that I was Tekahionwake, the Mohawk that humbly aspired to be the saga singer of her people, the bard of the noblest folk the world has ever seen, the sad historian of her own race.”
E. Pauline Johnson, Tekahionwake
