Tuscarora is a sovereign nation in the Niagara region of upstate New York and a member of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The Tuscarora were the first native people to be dispossessed of their land during the colonization of the United States. The certainty of their future was at stake as they walked north, beginning in 1713, to join their Haudenosaunee relatives. Now, almost 300 years after this hardship, they are prospering as a people. Tuscarora Nation depicts their culture and traditions, the height of their agricultural success, the rich heritage of lacrosse, the unique fishing culture along the Niagara River, and their traditional government of chiefs and clanmothers.

The subject matter of the 36 tests presented in this document deals principally with three areas of Tuscarora culture: cosmological and traditional religious beliefs, medical practices, and mythic traditions. However, just as religion, medicine and myth do not appear to have been highly differentiated spheres of traditional Tuscarora society, they are seldom treated apart in individual texts. This volume organizes texts around three areas, placing those texts in which religious themes dominate together, and so on. Cosmological and religious topics are the dominant elements in the first four of the texts. The following 19 are concerned with medical practices. Included are texts which indicate how specific diseases are to be treated, and specific medicines prepared; texts which describe the roles which medicines and medical practitioners played in traditional Tuscarora society; and texts which deal with sorcery and witchcraft, practices which were intimately connected with medicine among the Tuscarora. The last 13 texts focus on Tuscarora mythic traditions, and describe many of the major characters who populated these myths.

From World War II onward, the Iroquois, one of the largest groups of Native Americans in North America, have confronted a series of crises threatening their continued existence. From the New York-Pennsylvania border, where the Army Corps of Engineers engulfed a vast tract of Seneca homeland with the Kinzua Dam, from the ambition of Robert Moses and the New York State Power Authority to develop the hydroelectric power of the Niagara Frontier (which eroded the land base of the Tuscaroras), from the construction of the Saint Lawrence Seaway (which took land from the Mohawks and still affects their fishing industry), to the present-day battles over the Oneida land claims in New York State and the Onondaga efforts to repatriate their wampum—Laurence Hauptman documents the bitter struggles of proud people to maintain their independence and strength in the modern world. Out of these battles came a renewed sense of Iroquois nationalism and nationwide Iroquois leadership in American Indian politics. Hauptman examines events leading to the emergence of the contemporary Iroquois, concluding with the takeover at Wounded Knee in the winter-spring of 1973 and the Supreme Court's Oneida decision in 1974. His research is based on historical documents, published materials, and interviews and fieldwork in every Iroquois community in the United States and several in Canada.
