Encyclopedia of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Confederacy) (Google eBook)
Bruce Elliott Johansen, Barbara Alice Mann
Greenwood Publishing Group, Jan 1, 2000 - History - 366 pages
A comprehensive reference work on the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Confederacy), containing over 200 entries covering Haudenosaunee history, present-day issues, and contributions to general North American culture. "Haudenosaunee" (People of the Longhouse) is the name the Iroquois use for their confederacy ("Iroquois" is the name given them by the French). This encyclopedia surveys the histories of the six constituent nations of the confederacy (Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk, and Tuscarora, adopted about 1725). Several entries also trace ways in which the practices of the Iroquois have filtered into general North American society.
