North American - A chief of the Hurons or the Mohawks. It was prophesied that he would cause much trouble in later life so his mother dropped him through a hole in the ice when he was born. Three times she tried and each time she found him safe and sound next morning. He grew to manhood in a few years, became an ally of Hiawatha and promulgated the laws of the confederacy of tribes. Sometimes referred to as Dekanawida.
