OUT OF PRINT The Iroquois, part of A First American Book series, written by Lakota Sioux author Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve presents an overview of this specific Native American Nation's culture and history for elementary students. The picture book begins with a brief version of the Iroquois creation story. The next section describes the formation of the Five Nations Confederacy or Great Law of Peace. The Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Oneida, and Seneca Nations joined together in the spirit of peace brought by the Peacemaker and Hiawatha. The following sections cover topics such as the roles of Iroquois men, the roles of Iroquois women, the importance of foods such as corn and maple syrup, children, spirits and healing, and the significance of wampum. The final section of this 32-page book covers the American Revolution, and the move of several Iroquois Nations to different reserves and reservations in Canada and the United States. The author stresses that the modern Iroquois live in cities and reservations where many retain aspects of their traditional culture and ceremonies. Included in the book are a map, an index, and quotes from historical leaders of the Iroquois. Unfortunately the author and illustrator have chosen to include sacred and sensitive material regarding Iroquois medicine masks. Despite this aspect the book remains a useful introduction to Iroquois Nations from a Native American writer's perspective.
