Note:  This video is primarily in the Mohawk language.  Both the closed caption and transcript options available do not recognize the Mohawk terms and have therefore assigned the closest English words and pronunciations, resulting in an incoherent and unuseable text.  The terms have been written as part of the video alongside their corresponding images; however, the English translations are only spoken.
