The Peacemaker Returns takes place in the far future, 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 need not interfere with another’s; and that peace is not just the absence of war, it is the eradication of injustice as well. Now Earth has a new challenge, and Iotetshèn:’en, a young Mohawk woman, is traveling through space along with four other diplomats to a momentous rendezvous.

Just as every child in our society knows who Santa Claus is, every child in ancient Iroquoia knew who the PeaceMaker was. His name was
Tekanawí:ta, and he brought peace, unity and respect to five warring nations –the Mohawk, the Onondaga, the Oneida, the Cayuga, and the Seneca. 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. It also imagines more peacemakers, some of whom might be women.
