In 1917, in a move that is not known by most, the Iroquois Confederacy declared war on Germany. Even though Native Americans were not part of the United States draft, over 10,000 joined up to fight overseas. The Iroquois Confederacy’s declaration came on the heels of what they deemed mistreatment of tribal members stranded in Berlin at the start of the conflict. This 1917 quarter recalls the entrance of a forgotten player into WWI.
