Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The objective of this thorough, two-volume study of contact period Huron culture and history is to elucidate indigenous perspectives and rationales for political behavior and actions that were largely misunderstood in early European accounts. Trade networks and relations are central to the author’s approach. A prehistory of the region and archaeological evidence of settlements are provided.
