ANT 356 - Cultural History of the Iroquois


2013-2014 Catalog Year

This course begins with an examination of Iroquois prehistory and traces the development of the cultural patterns that characterized their society at the time of contact. Archaeological, ethnohistorical, and ethnographic data are used to elucidate the social, political, religious, and economic components of traditional Iroquois life and to explain the changes that resulted from interactions with Europeans. The issues confronting Iroquois communities today are examined from the perspectives of both the Iroquois themselves and their non-Native American neighbors.
