About Israel Tekarihoken Rice

My Grandfather Israel (Tekarihoken) was a fur trapper and sold his pelts to the Hudson Bay company and he was a hunter also he was a cook in Lumber camps judy riceTEKARIHOKEN (Tegarihogen, Tegarioguen, Teharihogen, Teharihoguen, Thearihogen), title of one of the sachems, or hereditary chiefs, of the Mohawks. This chief belonged to the Turtle clan and Horatio Hale says he was respected as “the first chief of the eldest among the Iroquois nations.” Hale suggests that the name means “holding two offices”; this would be especially appropriate since Tekarihoken, unlike most of the other sachems, was both a civil and a military leader. L. H. Morgan gives the title in its Seneca form Dagäeogä, and suggests that it means “Neutral” or “the Shield.”

A chief by the name of Tekarihoken is mentioned frequently by the French between 1653 and 1659, a period of almost continuous Iroquois guerilla warfare against them and their Indian allies. In 1653 Tekarihoken led one of the Mohawk war parties that sought to avenge the killing of chief Aontarisati in Trois-Rivières the year before. His appears to have been the band that seized Father Joseph-Antoine Poncet* de La Rivière: near Sillery on 20 Aug. 1653. this is the meaning of my grandfathers native name Judy Rice
