Reflecting the latest scholarship, this book looks at the different groups of Native Americans who lived on the land that would one day become New York State. • Primary source documents, paintings, and artifacts guide readers in exploring the current understanding of the ways in which the Algonquian-speaking peoples and the Iroquois lived before the arrival of the first Europeans. • Examines the effect that contact between the Native American and European cultures had on the people themselves and the development of the colony and state.
