The Orenda is a historical novel by Canadian author Joseph Boyden. It was published by Hamish Hamilton in 2013. The novel takes place in what was to become Canada in the early 17th century and is narrated by a Huron warrior named Bird, a young Iroquois girl named Snow Falls, and a French Jesuit missionary named Christophe. Bird's family has been murdered by members of the Haudenosaunee tribe. In retaliation he vows to kill at least a hundred members of that tribe per victim
Morning Song, the daughter of an Iroquois woman and a French trapper, takes up the mantle of her grandmother, Teller of Legends, the keeper of the tribal history, but her task is threatened by war, love, and the necessity for following her own vision.

The Huron-Iroquois rivalry, now growing vicious, courses through this novel, and these three are its principal characters. Christophe and Snow Falls are held captive in Bird’s massive village. The world of The Orenda blossoms to include such unforgettable characters as Bird’s oldest friend, Fox; his lover, Gosling, who some believe possesses magical powers; two more Jesuit Crows who arrive to help form a mission; and boys from both tribes whose hearts veer wildly from one side to the other, for one reason or another. Watching over all of them are the spirits that guide their every move.
