NEW YORK (AP) — Robbie Robertson of The Band has created a children’s book based on a story he heard as a boy about the Iroquois. Robertson’s book, “Hiawatha and the Peacemaker,” is the story of a Mohawk named Hiawatha who was chosen to translate the Peacemaker’s message of unity for five warring Iroquois nations in the 14th century. Robertson is of Mohawk and Cayuga descent and heard the story as part of the Iroquois oral tradition. The book comes with a CD containing a Robertson original song. It’s out now.
