Eighteenth-Century Wyandot: A Clan-Based Study, The, hardcover ed

$102.00

The Eighteenth-Century Wyandot: A Clan-Based Study by Humber College professor John L. Steckley examines the importance of clans to the study of the history and cultural traditions of the people known as Wyandot. The Wyandot were born of two Wendat peoples encountered by the French in the first half of the seventeenth century—the otherwise named Petun and Huron—and their history is fragmented by their dispersal between Quebec, Michigan, Kansas, and Oklahoma. This book weaves these fragmented histories together, with a focus on the mid-eighteenth century.
