This course surveys the long-term development of Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) culture from an archaeological perspective. Issues examined will include the geographic origins of the Iroquois; material culture, settlement, and subsistence; the founding of the Iroquois Confederacy; Iroquois responses to European-borne diseases, the fur trade, and territorial encroachment; the practicalities of doing Indian archaeology in New York State; and contemporary Haudenosaunee perspectives on archaeology. The Six Nations Iroquois will be emphasized, with some material drawn from surrounding Northern Iroquoian groups. Visits to local archaeological sites and museum collections will supplement classroom instruction.
