Chief PieskaretPieskaret - A famous chief of the Adrondack Indians who was noted for his daring deeds.  His tribe joined with the French in the early 1600's and drove the powerful Iroquois out of Canada into the United States.  It was during this war that Pieskaret distinguished himself.  On one occasion he ventured alone within the Iroquois domain and, coming to one of their villages, hid himself during the day and for three successive nights stole into the village, scalping the members of a lodge each night.  he was later killed when he encountered a large band of Iroquois.
