During the reservation period of Iroquois history, the
Council of the Confederacy was the only agency with powers broad enough to encompass all
the tribes and overcome inter-tribal antagonisms. This study is an analysis of the manner
in which law and government developed by precedent on the basis of cases presented to the
Council for adjudication. In addition to the specific case material, there is scattered
information on other aspects of Iroquois society as well as historical data on culture
