    A Straight Dope Classic from Cecil's Storehouse of Human Knowledge

    Why do so many Native Americans work on skyscrapers?

    December 18, 1992

    Dear Cecil:

    What's the deal with the historical hiring of Native American Indians to work on skyscrapers? Have they all truly been blessed with a lack of fear for heights?

    — Robert Wallman, New York

    Cecil replies:

    Nah, it's the warrior ethic. Really. But first we'd better have a little background. It's not just any American Indian who goes into ironwork, it's mostly Iroquois, specifically Mohawks from the Kahnawake reservation near Montreal.
