The main character of my novel will be spending some time with an Iroquois Tribe from Ontario. There he will find a gay Japanese-Canadian (he is 16 at the current date in the story) is going to end up living with this particular Iroquois tribe. He met them a few times as a young child for single night events. He moved to stay with them permanently when he is twelve. The setting is current day, but the Iroquois tribe was displaced from time and space before the arrival of the Europeans. Kind of like in the Star Trek The Original Series season 3 episode “The Paradise syndrome”. So this particular tribe never had to deal with the death and disease, or anything else that came with the Europeans. They have however met their neighbours in this new universe some of which are European, Asian, and Canadian etc. But it has always been a peaceful relationship.
So I have a lot of questions about celebrations, travel, visitors, adoptions, and life, that needs detailed answers.( Read more...Collapse )
