This is a translation of all of the religious texts indicated in the title, including importantly the New Testament, into what the book refers to as the Mahauque Indian language. [1] This likely is an antiquated Anglicization of Mohawk.[2] The translated copy was intended for use by missionaries among American Indians. [3]
