      For those interested in native history, there is an interesting
      exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
      Entitled Mohawk Ideals, Victorian Values: Oronhyatekha, it is devoted
      to the life of a Mohawk scholar and physician.
      Orornhyatekha was the grandson of 1812 Mohawk chief Peter Martin.
      The exhibit includes many items from the 1812 period, including a
      compass given to Tecumseh by Brock, gorgets presented by George III
      to native leaders, Martin's tomahawk and an interesting officer's
      tunic of a kind I've never seen before.
      The exhibit is on in the IndigenousPeoples Gallery on the lower level
      until August.
