An authoritative illustrated study of the People of the Longhouse.

In this handsome book, Michael G. Johnson, the author of the award-winning Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes and its companion, Arts and Crafts of the North American Tribes, looks at the people of the Iroquois Confederacy. The tribes were the Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, Onondaga, Seneca, and -- admitted into the Iroquois as a sixth nation by 1722 -- the Tuscarora.

Iroquois: People of the Longhouse details their story up to the present day, when perhaps 50,000 people of Iroquois descent still live on, or near, their reserves in Canada and the U.S., with that many again living in cities.

Rich with archival, contemporary and modern photographs, maps and illustrations, Iroquois: People of the Longhouse contains certainty:

  • The Origins of the Iroquois Confederacy
  • The Six Nations and Incorporated Tribes
  • History 1500-1750
  • The French and Indian War 1754-1766
  • New Wars in the Old Northwest
  • The American Revolution and the Aftermath
  • Disintegration, Reformation and Perseverance 1783 to the Present
  • Iroquois in the West
  • Iroquois Social & Political
  • Warfare
  • Food and Flora
  • Religion and Rituals
  • Material Culture: Longhouses, Dress, Wampum, Masks, Decorative Art, Beadwork
  • Important People in Six Nations History.

An Iroquois gazetteer, bibliography and list of Iroquois reserves and reservations and their populations complete this authoritative reference.

About the Author:

Michael G. Johnson has been a researcher of the material culture, demography and linguistic relationships of Native American peoples for more than 30 years through academic institutions in North America and Europe and during numerous field studies done in cooperation with many Native American communities. He is the author of the Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes, has published many articles in specialist publications and is a former associate editor of Pow-Wow Trails and American Indian Crafts and Culture, a contributing editor to Whispering Winds magazine, and an advisor to Indian Artifact magazine.

Review:

A lavishly illustrated text... a tantalizing overview of a history that stretches over at least five centuries. This coffee-table book, which includes many beautiful photos of Iroquois masks, clothing and beadwork, is suitable for the casual reader or curious grade-schoolers. (Publishers Weekly 2013-08-16)

Johnson has done an excellent job of creating a historical and cultural perspective, resulting in a book that all historians will cherish. (Shelf Life 2014-07-01)

Iroquois: People of the Long House is a high-quality coffee table production. The book features art, illustration, maps and photos. Mr. Johnson has published extensively on American Indian history, culture and crafts. He compiles his vast knowledge base of Iroquois life ways into this beautifully illustrated volume.... I was also pleased to see the inventory of all seventeen Six Nations recognized communities in the United States and Canada, and an inventory of the most common surnames in these communities. This is a valuable genealogical resource when many federally recognized tribes make it extremely difficult to access any genealogical information about their membership. Concluding, this is an excellent title I highly recommend. (Ken Dunn Whispering Wind, Issue 292 I Vol 42 No. 6(33) 2014-08-01)
