Mohawks and the WTC

It takes pride to walk on iron

Smithsonian exhibit has American Indian work displayed at Cal U. of Pa.The exhibit will include a sculpture created by Darryl Provonost, a member of the Mohawk tribe, that uses metal recovered from the ruins of the World Trade Center during the clean up at Ground Zero, a project Mohawk skywalkers also participated in.

"What's interesting about this particular exhibit is that it will run during the anniversary of 9/11, and the Mohawks were the people that put up the structure and also dismantled it after the plane crashes," said Joyce Hanley, executive vice-president at Cal U. "They were there at the beginning and the end."
