The Iroquois Indians is one of the titles in Bridgestone Books series, Native Peoples, especially written for elementary students. This title is authored by Bill Lund who consulted with Judy Harris at the Woodland Cultural Centre Museum. Her expertise and knowledge of Six Nations Iroquois history and culture is evident throughout this title. All titles in the series follow a similar format with 8 sections that cover the home, food and clothing; the family; religious (spiritual) life; the League of Nations; Iroquois and Settlers; Wampum; and an excerpt from the Creation Story. The book contains a simplified map of North America, a page of facts about Iroquois in the past and today, glossary, additional reading, and an index. A Hands-On activity is included and features a simple method for making a wampum string with dried macaroni. The book correctly explains the Iroquois uses for wampum. Colour and archival photographs appear on every other page and are accurately captioned. The content in Religious Life correctly stresses that the Iroquois give thanks to the Creator for all things through ceremonies in the Longhouse. The author is careful to indicate that the Six Nations Iroquois have a vibrant culture today as they did in the past and they live today in Canada and the United States. This is an excellent book for grades three to six that explains the basics of Iroquois culture. Highly recommended. Junior Spring 2012.
