Description

Red Jacket: Iroquois Diplomat and Orator is the book about Sagoyewatha (Shay-gó-ye-wátha), a formidable diplomat and one of the most famous Native American orators of the nineteenth century. As a representative of the Seneca and the Six Nations, Red Jacket negotiated with American presidents from George Washington to Andrew Jackson, establishing a legacy that continues to influence discussions of Haudenosaunee sovereignty and cultural identity. This is an important biography by historian Christopher Dinsmore.
