Origin of "Mohawk-hair-do"
The ancient Gaelic/Gallic Warrior on Phaestos Disc from Crete
The battle for Jerusalem engraved on the Phaestos disk from Crete depicts a head with a Mohawk-hair-style." Caesar stated Gaelic/Gallic warriors wore their golden hair in a pony-main, with the rest of their head shaved and their pony-main trailing long down their backs. The Greeks and Romans wore their own fake pony-mains on their helmets (looking like modern paint-brushes). Josephus (in 'The Jewish War') stated the Gaels, along with Phoenicians (Gaels were also Phoenicians) were the only two peoples living in Jerusalem, which was anciently in Phoenicia, aka, 'Land of Canaan.'
Many losing warriors in the Aegean and Mediterranean areas often high-tailed it to the Americas in ocean-going ships to avoid being beheaded by the conquering warriors, probably via the Great Lakes, bringing this style. This hair-do represented the sticking-up main of their ancient ponies which they worshipped. Epona, Celtic goddess of ponies and horses was favored, and is shown here on left.
