The Living History of the Iroquois

The Wampum Chronicles is pleased to announce the first book from Darren Bonaparte,
the author of
A Lily Among Thorns: The Mohawk Repatriation of Káteri Tekahkwí:tha

In addition to the wampum belts that form our archives, the People of the Longhouse have also recorded our history and culture in written documents.  This Rotinonhsón:ni literary tradition reached its zenith in the 19th century, with the works of men like Joseph Brant, Major John Norton, David Cusick, J. N. B. Hewitt, Seth Newhouse, and John Arthur Gibson, to name just a few.  They have preserved for us not only our creation story and epic of confederation, but the story of our own evolution.
