Flint and Feather (Iroqrafts, Six Nations) is a reprint of the book of verse first published by the Musson Book Company of Toronto in 1912.

Emily Pauline Johnson (1861-1913) was born at Chiefswood on the Six Nations Reserve to a Mohawk father and an English mother. Johnson's writing career began in 1895 with the publication of her first book of poems, White Wampum. She went on to write additional books of verse and prose. Her career as a stage entertainer took her across Canada and United States as well as England. In her stage career she adopted her grandfather's Mohawk name, Tekahionwake.

Flint and Feather contains over 90 poems including The Song My Paddle Sings which remains her most popular poem that for many years was required memory work for Canadian students. Pauline Johnson remains a popular Canadian figure and her writing continues to inspire First Nations authors.

This Iroquois Reprint contains a portrait of Pauline Johnson by Tuscarora artist Raymond Skye.
