Description

The Ordeal of the Longhouse: The Peoples of the Iroquois League in the Era of European Colonization authored by Daniel K Richter examines a wide range of primary documents to survey the responses of the peoples of the Iroquois League--the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, and Tuscarora--to the challenges of the European colonialization of North America. He demonstrates that by the early eighteenth century a series of creative adaptations in politics and diplomacy allowed the peoples of the Longhouse to preserve their cultural autonomy in a land now dominated by foreign powers. The author looks into the historical literature to locate the Haudenosaunee prior to 1720.
