Tools and Weapons

Mohawk hunters used bows and arrows. Mohawk fishermen used spears and fishing poles. Mohawk men used their bows and arrows or fought with clubs, spears and shields when in war. Other important tools used by the Mohawks included stone adzes, flint knives for skinning, and wooden rakes for farming. The Mohawks and other Iroquois were skilled woodworkers, boiling wood so that it could be bent to make curved tools such as axes, rakes, and knives.
