Abstract

Two considerations led to this study. First was a desire to better understand events n northeastern North America during the sixteenth century; that formative yet enigmatic phase of European-native relations. Second was the need to get beyond the conceptual roadblock of "The Iroquois" and their league. To explore these questions, a particular native group, the ONondage Iroquois, is examined as well as how their culture changed as a consequence of European contact.
