ANT 356 - The Haudenosaunee until 1815

This course begins with an examination of Haudenosaunee 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 Haudenosaunee life and to explain the changes that resulted from interactions with Europeans. The issues confronting Haudenosaunee communities today are examined from the perspectives of both the Haudenosaunee themselves and their non-Native American neighbors.
