Description

Card #1 from a set of 20 coloring cards for children depicting scenes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem, 'The Song of Hiawatha.'

"Then he swung aloft his war-club,
Shouted loud and long his war-cry,
Smote the mighty Mishe-Mokwa
In the middle of the forehead,
Right between the eyes he smote him."
