North American Indian tribe name, Iroquoian, 1630s, Mohowawogs (plural), said to mean “they eat living things” in a southern New England Algonquian tongue, probably a reference to cannibalism. Cf. Unami Delaware /muhuwe:yck/ “cannibal monsters.” The people’s name for themselves is kanye’keha:ka. Meaning “haircut style favored by punk rockers” is c.1975, from fancied resemblance to hair style of the Indians in old illustrations. The style of cut earlier was called a Mohican (1960). Mohoc, Mohock, variant form of the word, was the name given 1711 to gangs of aristocratic London ruffians.
