Mohawk Indian Pottery

These are pictures of a piece of Mohawk pottery. Does anyone have any information about it? The second Mohawk word carved on the bottom of the pot appears to be Kanienkehake (which means "Mohawk,") but we can't make out the first word.

Solved: That didn't take long! The name carved on the bottom is Karoniaktatie, which is the Mohawk name of a poet who evidently also has some background in sculpture. His English name is Alex Jacobs. Here's his MySpace page, and here's the Native American Authors entry for him.

Thanks for the help! If anyone has more information about this piece of pottery, please feel free to contact the owner.
