Yack! That feels like an accommodation too far. What's next, Yorkee for the breed of dog? Monkee for the primate? Kentuckee for the state? Stand tough, Quizmaster!

Seems like the Mohawk fought against the Mohicans, and are completely different tribes; the languages aren't even related, one is Algonquian and the other Iroquoian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahican

My bad. Interestingly, the Mohawk hairstyle is called a Mohican in the UK. Also, apparently I'm not the first person to screw this up if you look at the origin of the name Mohawk. In any case, it is now fixed.

I'm shocked that I managed to get Yankee, since I'm not American, but failed to get Nelson, Hitler, Trench, Rhodes and Israel.

At first I thought you were asking who banned the Nabokov book. I was trying to think of six-letter names such as Boston or France which fit the puzzle. Finally it dawned on me you wanted the name of the book. Duh.

I have a small quibble with the clue for 'Yankee'. To be pedantic, it really should be Northeastern U.S. in the clue, and not Northern U.S. But I'm sure no one else probably noticed/cared. Just had to type my piece, as a Washingtonian. Carry on.

No, you have a point. If it had said northeastern, I might have gotten it. As it was, I was completely stumped, trying to think of a nickname for people from Minnesota-Michigan-Dakotas-etc. area. And then was no less confused when I saw the answer was "Yankee", because I have NEVER heard anyone from the aforementioned states called a Yankee. From New England, yes. But they're not the only northern states.

Absolutely! And often preceded by a few expletives as well. (My Mom was a New Yorker who married my Dad [a foreigner]. We lived in Latin America, including the Caribbean. I am very familiar with the terminology, and it is not just reserved for New Englanders, believe me.

There are more than a few Southerners who might not take too kindly to being called a Yankee. :-)

When I briefly moved to Arkansas some years back, from the moment I opened my mouth and my Joisey accent issued forth, I was "a Yankee". But I didn't take offense and just rolled with it. By the time I left, I had overcome all of the prejudices and stereotypes and had attained the status of "good Yankee". :-P
