The Peacemaker Returns is a futuristic saga set in 3025 yet firmly rooted in the ancestral Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) confederation story and featuring historical figures such as Tekanawí:ta, Jacques Cartier, and a president addicted to Twitter!
Just as every child in our society knows who Santa Claus is, every child in ancient Iroquoia knew who the Peacemaker was: the one who brought peace, unity and respect to five warring nations –the Mohawk, the Onondaga, the Oneida, the Cayuga, and the Seneca. The Peacemaker Returns takes place in a time when the entire Earth has become a confederation of countries who truly recognize that we share one planet; that one person’s religion, language, sexuality, skin colour need not interfere with another’s; and that peace is not just the absence of war, it is the eradication of injustice. Now Earth has a new challenge, and Iotetshèn:’en, a young Mohawk woman, is travelling through space along with four other diplomats to a momentous rendez-vous.
The Peacemaker Returns imagines how the ancestral Iroquois knowledge of peacemaking can be applied to all humans today, and to other-worldly beings one day.
