Drawing on the excerpt of Audra Simpson’s Mohawk Interruptus, answer the following questions:
1. According to Simpson, how is membership in the Iroquois Confederacy different to the concept of citizenship employed by settler states, such as that revealed by the border guards with whom she interacts? Give two to three differences with examples from the article. Use the definition of citizenship given in Guest p. 168.
2. Does the border between Canada and the U.S. and the difficulties members of the Iroquois Confederacy face in crossing it, deepen or undermine a sense of shared Mohawk ethnicity? Explain your response with examples from the text. Hint: also use the definition of ethnicity given on p. 154 of Guest.
