You probably know this already, but in case you don't I can't let this pass. (I know you added "kidding" for a reason, but I've stumbled upon too many jokes in my lifetime based on actual ignorance, and it's hard to tell from across a screen...)
Mohawk means "man eater". It's a name they use now, but it was actually given to them by an enemy nation, and then it stuck with the colonist. They actually name themselves Kanienkeha:ka (sorry, I know there's an accent in there but my keyboard is a jerk), which means People of the Flint. The haircut was only for warfare and I believe most, if not all, North American aboriginal nations had it or another similar haircut. I mock that haircut whenever I see it in mainstream media, but when worn for actual warfare, especially when worn by an actual Native American, even if he is fictional, makes me uncomfortable, and that is why I just had to spill that rant in here.
Mm... sorry about that. I /do/ know that "Mohawk" means "man-eater"/People of the Flint/ect (not lying, I did do research of the game here and there)... but I suppose that I was being a bit silly/ignorant at the time.
Sorry I understand where you're coming from, though/never meant to make you/someone uncomfortable
