Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This study is concerned with how Iroquois culture is
maintained at the Six Nations Reserve in Ontario, Canada, despite intense acculturative
pressure. Iroquois conservatism is the central theme of this study, and Shimony focuses on
the traditional Longhouse community and presents a comprehensive description of the
structure of the society and the content of the culture, with particular emphasis on social
and political organization, medicine, and curing rites.
