coming closer

 During this story, Aionwahta finds his father listening to war whoops in the night.  He questions his father as to the reason for the warring of the tribes, which to this point had not affected the Onondagas.  His father is unable to adequately explain why the fighting all started, just that each tribe is seeking revenge for that which the others have done to them.  (Zoo Boy's drawing, below, depicts this conversation.)  Suddenly they hear warriors rushing through the camp, and under Father's instructions, Aionwahta takes the women and children and hides them in the woods all night, while horrible noises come from the village. (J drew Aionwahta leading the women and children away, above.)
