An Update from southern Iroquoia

Author(s): James W. Bradley

Year: 2014


Cross-cultural interactions, among Native peoples as well as with Europeans, were a hallmark of the 16th century in the St. Lawrence Basin and adjacent drainages. This paper proposes some structural ways for examining these complex interactions and summarizes recent research pertaining to the Five Nations Iroquois and the Susquehannock. Particular emphasis is placed on how three classes of high-value material - marine shell, copper and red stone - can be used to probe these dynamics.
