About Stamp

Molly Brant, known to the Iroquois as Koñwatsi'tsiaiéñni, was the undisputed leader of the Six Nations Matrons, an influential group of Iroquois women. She was also a fervent Loyalist and the wife of Sir William Johnson, Superintendent of Indian Affairs in the Thirteen Colonies. During the 1776 American Revolution, Molly Brant encouraged the tribes of the Six Nations to remain loyal to the British. Later, after they had lost lands to the Americans, many of the Iroquois fled to Canada. Molly Brant used her influence with the British leaders to obtain new lands for the Loyalist Amerindians. Sara Tyson's design depicts three facets of the heroine's life : Molly Brant as Iroquois, Loyalist, and European.
