Mohawk Indian war chief Thayendanegea (who had converted to Christianity under the name of Joseph Brant), an English protégé and a colonel in the British army, was instrumental in persuading the Iroquois to take up arms against the American rebels. He was a chief organizer of Indian bands allied to the British, and his forces became the scourge of independence-minded settlers on the New York and Pennsylvania frontiers.
