Hiawatha - the great prophet of the Iroquois Confederation.
He probably lived about AD 1570 . He recognised the fact that internal dissension and petty feuds were the greatest of evils that preyed on the Red Indian nations. He therefore founded the Iroquois league, a league of nations that aimed at general peace and well being, substituting a tribunal of justice to settle disputes in place of war.
Opus 30 No 1,Hiawatha's Wedding is the first of a trilogy by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. The second and third parts are 'The Death of Minihaha' and 'Hiawatha's Departure'.
First of the trilogy from 'Scenes from the song of Hiawatha'
