Iroquois: People of the Longhouse


The date of the unification of five linguistically related but separate tribes who lived along the rivers and lakeshores of what is now northern New York State is unknown. Native tradition puts the date long before the arrival of Europeans in the early 16th century, but evidence suggests the likely date of around the middle of the 1500s, perhaps in response to the threat of colonization.  Beautifully illustrated with full color photographs and drawings, Iroquois is the perfect book for those interested in Native American history.
