The Five (later Six) Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy were central to
the story of the white colonisation of the American Northeast. The European für
trade transformed their world, and the struggles between English and French
colonists forced the tribes to take sides. Sir William Johnson's efforts in the
Mohawk Valley ensured that the Iroquois Nations were allies of the British
crown; and the loyalty of his kinsman Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) during the
American Revolution forced the Mohawks into Canadian exile. This richly
illustrated book introduces Iroquois history, social organisation, religion and
material culture. Contents: Introduction * Origins of the Confederacy * The
five, later six nations * History of the Confederacy: early contacts with
British and Dutch colonies * The 17th Century Mohawk and Beaver Wars
against the French * Sir William Johnson and the French-Indian War,
1701-1770 * Joseph Brandt and the Revolution, 1770-1800 * Social
organisation and religion * Material culture * Colour plates by Jonathan
Smith.
