About this title


With general introductions, and in some cases, new translations, this collection comprises all of the 38 principle narratives, written from 1634 to 1810, describing the Mohawk valley and its Iroquois inhabitants. It provides a detailed look at an American Indian nation.

From the Back Cover:

For centuries the history of the Mohawk Valley has been shaped by the complex relationships among the valley's native inhabitants, the Mohawk Indians, and its colonists, starting with the Dutch. In Mohawk Country collects for the first time the principal documentary narratives that reveal the full scope of this Mohawk-settle interaction. Some of the sources have never before been translated into English, and several have not been previously published. Of those works that had been published, nearly all are out of print. These records bring to life the rapid changes experienced by both the Mohawk and their European neighbors. Wars, catastrophic epidemics, and the diplomacy of nearly two centuries are all well represented in this volume. Fascinating cultural differences are also unearthed: the French, for example dealt with the Mohawk much differently than the Dutch or the English. Just as importantly, these writings reveal - from the unique perspectives of the observer - the Mohawk's struggle to retain their culture in the midst of evolving political, social, and physical environments.|This volume is one of several resulting from the Mohawk Valley Project.Compared to that of other Iroquois nations, the history and archaeology of the Mohawks had not been well developed by 1980, and the time was ripe for renewed investigation.
