Documentary Honors Mohawk Ironworker

For generations, Mohawk ironworkers have worked on high steel projects throughout the U.S., with many commuting hundreds of miles across the Canadian border to erect skyscrapers in New York. A new documentary profiles Chad Snow, a member of the Mohawk tribe, who walks the city’s skies as a connector in one of the most tradition-rich ironworkers unions in the country.

Watch the 5 ½- minute video here for more on Chad’s story and a glimpse into the hard-working life of a Mohawk ironworker. This documentary is part of a YouTube series Unsung, which tells the stories of individuals who work day-in and day-out behind the scenes to help make a positive impact on their families and communities.
