The war ended with a British victory. In the peace agreement between the two European adversaries, Indian rights to their lands were recognized. In spite of British pledges, the forty thousand acres originally granted to the Mohawks at Kahnawake near Montreal were immediately reduced by half. After the end of the war, France was forced to withdraw its armies from the Northeast, which left the Iroquois looking forward to a lasting peace. But even though the Mohawks had fought as loyal allies of Great Britain, they did not receive the rewards of victory.

Midwinter lasted for nine days, each of which was devoted to performing certain rites. In the initial rite, a pure white dog was ritually strangled and burned. Like tobacco smoke, smoke from the burning dog carcass was thought to carry people’s messages to spirits. Because dogs are loyal to their human owners, the animal symbolized the Mohawks’ own loyalty to supernatural beings. After the “white dog sacrifice,” messengers called Our Uncles went through each house in the village to announce the start of Midwinter.

The Mohawks and their Iroquois allies renewed attacks against several Indian peoples. They ranged as far west as Lake Superior in raids against the Huron, Neutral, and Petun tribes, who had relocated there. They made expeditions to the south as well, reaching to Virginia and the Carolinas. The turn of the eighteenth century also witnessed increasing expansion of English colonies, which encroached ever more on Mohawk territory. Skilled strategists among the Mohawks attempted to strike a balance with the English and French so that they could remain independent of both colonial powers.
