Osprey Men-at-Arms 395 : Tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy

The Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy were central to the story of the white colonization of the American Northeast. The European fur trade completely transformed their world, and the struggles between English and French colonists forced the tribes to take sides. The efforts of the remarkable Sir William Johnson in the Mohawk Valley ensured that the Iroquois Nations were for the most part allies of the British crown, and the loyalty of his kinsman Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) during the American Revolution forced the Mohawks into Canadian exile. This introduction to Iroquois history, social organization, religion and material culture is illustrated with rare photographs and eight colour plates. Text by Michael Johnson with illustrations by Jonathan Smith.
