Description - Tekonwatonti: Molly Brant by Maurice Kenny
Sister of famed warrior Chief Joseph Brant and wife of the legendary Sir William Johnson, Tekonwatonti/Molly Brant seemed destined to exist only in their shadows until acclaimed poet Maurice Kenny plucked her from the footnotes of history. In a remarkable sequence of voices that span the centuries, Molly takes her rightful place as one of the most powerful figures in Native American history. As she grows from young girl to wife and mother to warrior who leads her people in a futile attempt to hold their ancestral lands, Molly comes vibrantly to life in poems that transcend time and place. In a luminous tribute to the indomitability of the human spirit, Kenny eloquently addresses the power of belief and the importance of memory.
