About the Author

Joe Jacobs is a “child of the 50s”, a “baby boomer” and a member of the Kahnawake Mohawk tribe in Canada and the Akwesasne Mohawk tribe in upstate New York. The youngest of four children and the first of his family to graduate high school, Joe was able to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree from Columbia University and his medical degree from Yale University. He has enjoyed all of the rights and privileges of those academic distinctions. But for Joe, they came at a price of almost losing his Mohawk Indian identity.

He rediscovered his Mohawk “inner voice” in the stacks in the Yale Sterling Library. His life was transformed by the history of his Kahnawake Mohawk tribe from the woodlands of North America to the banks of the Nile River. As a result of this rediscovery, he has developed a stronger bond to his family and his Kahnawake brethren. He has come to recognize the reincarnation of the warrior spirit.
