Nation Iroquoise: A Seventeenth-Century Ethnography of the Iroquois includes the original French transcription and its English translation of an undated and unsigned manuscript found in the National Archives of Canada and the Bibliotheque Mazarine in Paris. This manuscript describes the seventeenth-century culture and government of the Oneida Nation. The author offers a possible explanation for the source of the manuscript and its significance to an understanding of Iroquois ethnography.
Your Fyre Shall Burn No More, Iroquois Policy toward New France and Its Native Allies to 1701 is a unique interpretation of the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy's involvement in the so-called Beaver Wars. The standard historical interpretation states that the Iroquois were motivated by economic gain when they engaged the French and their Native allies in warfare during the seventeenth-century. This warfare was solely directed at attempting to gain control of the fur trade away from the French. Historians have maintained this argument for generations.
