The appearance of the fearsome Petun Wolf Warriors, cloaked in animal skins and daubed in war paint, is enough to put terror in the stoutest of hearts! Their tomahawks can be used in close combat or flung from afar, but the effect on an enemy’s skull will remain constant and terrible! If a warrior defeats an enemy’s courage the battle is already half won: only the messy business of hacking at the flesh remains undone.
The Petun were part of the Huron Confederacy and lived in what is now Southern Ontario. The Petun’s name comes from the tobacco plant that they cultivated, smoked and traded. Tobacco was commonly used by the Native Americans, as they believed it to be a gift from the Creator. Due to its sacred origins, tobacco was used in offerings to the spirits, charms and incantations. It was also used for medicinal purposes and smoked to mark important social occasions, deals or decisions.
