Most Seneca and Tuscarora Indians today live in New York Statethe Senecas from time immemorial and the Tuscaroras since the late 1700s, when they moved north from North Carolina, forced out by whites. These two tribes are the westernmost members of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy.
Haas's annotated bibliography on both tribes includes citations to journal articles, books, theses, and government documents published up to 1992. She covers archeology, arts, and crafts, biographies, captivity tales, children's books, fiction and poetry, folklore and legends, food and agriculture, games, legislation, history, government, health practices, land problems, linguistics and publications in the Seneca or Tuscarora language, missions, and missionaries (with a chapter by Christopher Densmore on Quaker publications on the Seneca from 1791 through 1899), music, dance, physical anthropology and genetics, religion, social customs, treaties, wars, women, periodicals, and state and federal government documents.
The book will be useful to students of Native American studies, anthropology, archeology, folklore, or religion; historians of Indian America or of New York and the neighboring states and Canadian provinces; tribal members investigating their history; lawyers working on Indian legal problems; collectors of Indian language imprints; librarians needing a buying guide; and teachers or parents looking for suitable books for children. The bibliography's full annotations make it possible for researchers to zero in on material on their subject of interest.
